Clean and Simple and Lovely and Inky!!

Morning. Gosh Mondays come round really quickly!
Today it is my turn to show you my creations using stamps available from the lovely Emily at Make The Day Special.
The first one I want to share is, unusually for me a Clean and Simple Card (CAS)
This is made with one of the Unity Wooden Mounted Stamps 'Just Hanging Out' I love this stamp and was so pleased when Emily sent it to me. (Whoops, I've just noticed it's out of stock, sorry. I'm sure Emily will be getting some more soon.)
I've simply clear embossed the image, coloured it with ProMarkers and inked and clear embossed round the edge. Simply matted on some lovely textured cardstock. I've used a little Photo Punch on the corners so that I could slide the image onto it......................would you believe this was the trickiest part??? :-) I've just added a simple sentiment which I've coloured with an inkpad and clear embossed.
Whilst I had my Unity stamps out, I thought I'd have another play and this time do my usual and get inky and a 'little' messy!
She's lovely isn't she? She is a Suzi Blu stamp that I bought from Emily a while ago, thinking that she would look great on my Journal Pages.............and she does! I had so much fun making this. She is simply stamped and clear embossed and coloured with my Promarkers. I've coloured the background with my Distress Inks and then used a stencil (which I'ved used to Journal round!) with a stronger colour of DI. The little sentiment also comes with the set and I've stamped it onto Shrink Plastic.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to visit Emily who has the most fantastic really hard to get stamps and wonderful service.
