It's pretty windy here (to say the least) and snow is forecast for right through the night and tomorrow. Time to batton down those hatches!

Hello. I didn't get round to posting yesterday so today you are getting another twofer! This time I've been having a play with my new Unity stamps. The owl above has been coloured using Copic pens and the heart below using watercolour pencils.

This stamp and sentiment is from the Kit of the Month (yes, I signed up for the monthly kits too - oops again). I coloured the stamp using watercolour pencils. I stencilled the heart on the patterned paper, again using watercolour pencils. I like that the heart came out all splodgy, it suits the style of the stamp, I think.
I am entering the Unity Challenge - pink and red.

I have built up a scene using MFT dies and a tiny flower punch. The sentiments are MFT as well.
I am entering the challenge over at Penny Black & More - one for the girls.

I've got a little step by step here -
1. Die cut the foam shape.
2. Use a couple of sticky dots to attach to the acrylic block. Ink up.
4. Stamp again, this time using the 'real' stamp.
Please let me know if these little step by steps are useful and I will do more!
On a completely different topic who is on Instagram? I have just discovered that you can only put photographs on from your phone. So, I have the app on the phone but my photographs are on the laptop. Is there an easy way to get them onto your phone to Instagram them?

As some of you may know the Papertake Weekly Challenge has come to an end. I have also given up my demoing job for Trimcraft. So I am going to spend my extra spare crafty time pleasing me! I am hoping to work some more on those scrap and smash books. Blog more. Have a play with my new stash. And try to get my head round how Instagram works!
Anyhoo, are you after a great crafty read? Well, the latest edition of Simply Cards and Papercraft has hit the shelves. I have a couple of cards in the mag' as part of the 'Cardmakers Challenge'. The free gift is a fabby champagne glass die - very useful for all sorts of occasions. And there is loads of inspiration on how to use it. So go on, treat yourself!
