Unity Friends with Flair

Hi! So it's been awhile. I kinda lost my scrappy mojo this summer, lots of ideas but they weren't working in real life. I made a quick card tonight for Unity Stamp Co.'s Friends with Flair, it was my baby sister's birthday yesterday and I forgot to make her a card! Oh no. Luckily I haven't seen her yet so she'll never know. :-) She's obsessed with elephants so I decided to use the elephant from the Original You itty bitty set with a happy birthday sentiment that came in a Unity grab bag. Hopefully she likes it! 


I'm pretty sure this is one of the simplest cards I've ever done, but I'm kinda digging it and the elephant is way too pretty. Thanks for stopping by!

Growing In Unity Blog Hop


Hi Unity Friends! It's time for the Growing in Unity Blog Hop again and I'm so excited that I get to participate! We're focusing on the Sentiment Kits that Unity releases every month this go round and I got to play with the set called ...hello, thank you. It was the Sentiment Kit from July 2014 and it's pretty awesome. I ended up making 3 different cards with the kit(all with different techniques that I'll go into on another day, another project), and I love them all. I'll be using this set again and again, I think! So many great sentiments in it! So time to check out my projects! Here we go!

Card One:
I used a lot of Distress Paint on this one, both for the flower
and the background! 

Card Two:
 I used Distress Markers with a water brush for this one, again,
I used it on the flower and the background.

Card Three:
I used the Distress Markers again here but used them 
direct to paper for the stamps and with the Distress 
Air Sprayer Tool for the background.

Alright, so I obviously had way too much fun(though I could not cut a straight line for anything!) but I loved every minute of it. These stamps are fantastic, now, leave me a comment(because 2 people will win the frankly said sentiment set from this month!), visit the rest of the ladies on the hop and then go shop at Unity because everything is 50% off this weekend!

Here's the line up:

Growing in Unity Day 5!

Hi! I can't believe that it's my last post as the Growing in Unity gal! So today I used my favorite stamp set ever from Unity Stamp Co.! "I Miss Your Face". I got it about 2 1/2 years ago and it's still my favorite. :-) It's fun to color and I love that you can use all the dress forms together or you can do like I did today and just use one. Here's my card: 

There's all kinds of sparkle here, lol! I used a swirl embossing folder to add texture and repeat the swirls on the dress form. I love how this turned out. 

So this is the last post to comment on to be able to win one of two grab bags from Unity. I will pick at midnight on Saturday night and post the winners on Sunday morning. That gives you all day to comment. :-)

Thanks for joining me this week, if I've even inspired one person, then I did my job this week. :-) Now comment and then go shop the Unity sale! I did!

GiU Day Four!

Hi there! Where did almost the entire week go? This week has flown right by. So this is day 4 of my Growing in Unity week with Unity Stamp Co. I sat down to do this card today and it kind of ended up as an experiment. It's cute, but not my favorite. It sure was fun playing with the sprays for the background though! :-) I love the stamp though, I used Happy Chick Birthday, I stamped the bigger chick and then stamped the entire image right next to it. Again, I used a Sakura Stardust Pen for sparkle. Here's my card:


In real life the pink's are pretty close to identical. :-)

Now, since you've been here, go check out the sale going on at Unity this weekend. It started today and it's awesome! 

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow for my last project. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win!

Growing in Unity Day 2!

Hi! Thanks for stopping back in today for my second day as Unity Stamp Company's Growing in Unity gal! My card today is made with an older stamp set, Life's Short... Eat Cake! which was co-branded with Simple Stories. This set is fun, I usually use it for kid's cards but decided to try it out as one for someone a little older this time. Here's my card!


It's a little distressed, the paper was slightly distressed looking to begin with so I used my Distress Markers to stamp with to add to that look. I also added some sparkle just because it's fun. :-) 

Thanks again for visiting, don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some grab bag stamps, I'm picking 2 winners Saturday morning!
