GIU Day 5

Image
Hi all! How does a week go so fast when you're having fun? So today is my final day as a Growing in Unity girl 2017 for Unity Stamp Company. I went completely off the page today and decided to do a canvas. I'm not entirely sure if I'm keeping or gifting it yet but it's fun. :-) Today I played with the Canvas Wishes set that was released in May 2014. I love this set, it's huge and so fun to use. I used it on a canvas that I covered using Dylusions Ink Sprays. I didn't ink the stamps, instead I used water to lift the color. The words on the bottom were hand lettered by me using my trusty water brush. 
So much color and fun.... I kind of love it. 
Don't forget to leave a comment today (or leave comments on the other 4 days if you haven't already) because I will be picking 2 winners on Saturday night to win some Unity Stamp Co. goodies! :-)
Thanks so much for visiting my blog this week! Brittany

GIU Day 4...

Image
Hi again! I can't believe that it's day 4 already! So welcome back to my week as a Growing in Unity girl for Unity Stamp Company. If you're just joining us, check out the previous 3 days because every day that you comment is another chance to win some free stamps. So today, I continued my watercolor marker theme that seems to have taken over my GIU week with Spectrum Aqua Markers. I used them with the lovely "Lilacs & Birthdays {floral collage}" stamp. I adore lilacs and so this one is a favorite of mine to use for birthday cards.


I went totally CAS for this one just because I like it best this way. I am normally someone who uses lots of paper layers, but sometimes the stamp just calls for nothing else added.

GIU Day 3!

Image
Welcome! Can't believe that it's already day 3 of my Growing in Unity week! I'm having a blast with this week! I've got a super secret project in the works for Day 5... It's massive. However, back to day 3. Today I decided to play with an Angie Girl stamp. This is my favorite line that Unity Stamp Co. sells, I have a bunch of them and love them all. I have a card with an immediate purpose though for today. My bestie is having a baby girl in August and I'm hosting her baby shower in just 2 1/2 weeks! And of course I need to make a card, because, well, I don't buy cards, I make them, lol! So I decided to play with Stella Girl. She released in July 2015 and is completely fab! I'm pretty sure I never looked that put together when my munchkin was small. 

These girls are so cute, I love them! :-) 
I'm kind of obsessed with my different watercolor markers right now, I have 3 different types and I've used 2 different ones so far this week. 
Well, that&…

GIU Day Two

Image
Hi there! Welcome back for my second day of Growing in Unity for Unity Stamp Company. Today I decided to play with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers with the one of the adorable Whimsy Girls. I love the Whimsy Girls, they're cute and super fun to use for kids cards! I chose to use Bella Whimsy{Blowing Bubbles} for my card today.


I really like this card. I love the colors, and the burlap. I added Clear Wink of Stella to all the bubbles just to add some sparkle and some clear iridescent sequins on top of the burlap that gives a cool shine when the light hits it right. My niece will be excited to get this in the mail, she loves getting mail addressed to her. :-) 
Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win some Unity Stamps, and stop back tomorrow to see what I've got happening then!

Growing in Unity Day One

Image
Hi all! So I'm one of the Growing in Unity girls for Unity Stamp Company this week and I'm so excited! I haven't been able to craft much lately(college and a kiddo have been keeping me super busy) so this is a nice change of pace for me and is inspiring me to fit it in more. For my project today I used the Unity stamp set, Be Amazing. I love this set. It's been out for a while but it's still one of my favorites. 

She's kind of amazing and I was having fun giving her purple ombre hair. :-)  Thanks for stopping by and check back in tomorrow for another project!
