Happy Friday to you and welcome to Friends with Flair showcasing Unity and Ippity stamps!

Yea for a long weekend here in the US with the Columbus Day holiday on Monday!

Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends!

My card to share with you this week is full of layers and heat embossing. The background uses the beautiful diamond border stamp found in the August 2010 Unity Kit of the Month. Since it’s a mostly solid stamp with just a little distressing, heat embossing gives a nice image to show off! The chandelier, crest circle and sentiment are all from the Ippity Regal Greetings set – LOVE that set! Since I’m an Ippity Chick, I just happen to have it in stock if you need me to ship it out to you!

For the embossing, I used P K Glitz’ E P Max which is SUPER embossing powder packed with matching colored glitter for a MAX effect. Black and Lemonade worked perfectly for this card!

You ready? Here it is! Click on the image for a bigger view.

I was sad when Scenic Route decided to close their doors. I’ve got a good amount of their paper and I’m using it when the occasion fits. That would be today!

I haven’t used this cute Ippity set yet from the Spring release, so the stars jumped out and said “USE ME TODAY”! Stars and moons always need glitter too right? What wouldn’t a project be without some bling. 🙂

Let’s look at an altered project that I’ve been trying to do for a couple months now! I need a password keeper instead of having little coded scraps of paper stuck to my computer! I started with a pretty notebook and embellished from there. With the beautiful hearts on the front of the notebook anyway, I decided to continue that theme with the swirly heart from the Music of my Heart set. I used my fav letters from Alphabetically Adorable and there it is!

The heart was stamped on acetate with StazOn, then colored on the back with Glossy Accents then covered with glitter! It’s so pretty in real life with all the sparkle and shine!

Hello Ippity and Unity Friends!

Glad you made it to this week’s edition of FWF! I’m ready for the weekend, are you??

For a main list of all the participating blogs today, go to the Unity Blog for all the awesome links!

I did this layout recently using both Ippity and Unity stamps. I stamped with embossing ink, embossed with clear EP, then smeared ink over the paper using a Direct to Paper technique. Buffing with a paper towel removed the ink from the embossed letters leaving the white paper peek through. I love the versatility this technique offers – lots of opportunity for making your paper match all the time!
