Friends With Flair

And a Happy Black Friday to You!

Did you brave the crowds and find some deals?

Not me!!! Although I did end up going out to Lowe's to find some hardware stuff for little fix-ups around the house.

Yup, that's me...spending Black Friday cleaning the upstairs!

Oh well, at least I got into the craft room for a bit too!

I'm itching to sit down and play for hours with my new markers...but #1, I don't have a chair in my new room yet...and #2, I haven't had a few spare hours! 

I'll have to take what I can get for now, right?

I stamped a line image from one of the Unity KOM's and a quick sentiment...who doesn't always need some 'thank you's' on hand, right?

Then broke out some of the new markers and started coloring...and promptly learned how to use the colorless blender to fix mistakes!

Here it is...


  • cardstock: copic
  • stamps: Unity KOM
  • markers: Spectrum Noir
  • ribbon: the Paper Studio
  • button: stash

Linking up over at Friends with Flair, always so fun!

Thanks for looking in!

Gift Tags

Sometimes its fun to just whip out something simple...and tags can fit the bill!

Here are some simple yet elegant gift tags that I made in a quick evening.

I cut the cardstock into a rectangle, used an angle corner punch to snip off the top corners and stamped two snowflakes in versamark ink. I then heat embossed the snowflakes in silver and added gems with my irock tool. A quick hole punched in the top and ribbon knotted through, and they were done!

Here is a bit closer look...this shows the color more accurately and the shine of the embossing powder and gems.


  • cardstock: stash
  • corner punch: Stampin' Up
  • stamp: Craftsmart
  • ink: Versamark
  • embossing powder: Recollections
  • gems: irock
  • ribbon: JoAnn's
