Beautiful FWF / SSS Anything goes

Encouraging/uplifting sentiments are so necessary, and true friends appreciate kind words. I made this card for a dear friend of mine. Hope things get better for those experiencing challenging times. I'm entering this in this week's Unity Stamp Company's Friends With Flair as well as Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge. Now that I'm back from vacation, I have lots of craft e-mails/entries to catch up on. Everyone's creations are inspirational :)

Unity {be inspired} Challenge - Aug '14

It was accidental that these colors turned out the same as this month's {be inspired} challenge so I wanted to enter/share it. :) I love my new watercolor pencils! And this stamp is beautiful!!! I used Stormy Sky Distress Ink for the background, and the stamps were heat embossed with black embossing powder.

Harmony FWF

Finally had a chance to use Harmony Girl! Sometimes there are so many stamps, one doesn't know where to start. I was also really excited to use my new Prismacolor Premier Watercolor Pencils to color in the girl. I made three of these cards, one of which ended up being similar to this month's {be inspired} challenge colors. :) For this week's FWF, I chose these two. First I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then I masked it so I could stamp the girl over it (also with black embossing powder). One card is with the Stormy Sky Distress Ink in the background and the other I left it white. Then I added some speckles for a rainy look. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else shares!

All My Love FWF

Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my last two posts. I really do appreciate them. I was soooo happy that I won last week's Friends with Flair! It was the first time I ever won any contest! :D

Today, I'm sharing a simple card I made for a dear friend of mine. I love the Strength & Dignity kit from Unity Stamp Co., and it was one of the first ones I ordered from them. Can't wait to see what everyone else shares today! Have a great weekend :)

1st Friends With Flair

Today, I'm entering Friends With Flair for the first time. I'm really excited to use my new Unity stamps (have yet another order arriving today!) I'll keep the entry simple for now, just like my card. I absolutely love flowers, I'll add them anywhere!! Here's what I came up with this morning:

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Hand in Hand Card

Hi! I'm Ruby and mostly known as a writer. The world of crafts is a bit new to me, but it's so exciting!! I'm entering my card in this month's Unity Be Inspired Challenge. It's my first entering any kind of challenge, and I'm new to making cards anyway! Although I'm still practicing, I feel it'll help me to enter contests for the inspiration and motivation. Here's a friendly card that I made today...

I played around with a lot of the embellishments I had around. And I'm absolutely in love with the Unity stamps (which I received today so I'm really new to this). Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
