A Unity Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

I have the pleasure of joining several Growing in Unity Girls for a Unity blog hop! 


 I love Unity Stamps; it was hard to pick a stamp to use as I love them all! I went with a 'sweet' fruit image from the June Kit of the month. 


When I received the June Kit of the Month, I new exactly what I wanted to do with this image.  It is perfect for creating a background, which is so trendy right now.
I stamped the image multiple times, turning the stamp each time, to cover the cardstock.  Images are colored with Copics.

 I used the inlaid die cut technique for the 'Happy' part of my sentiment and heat embossed the remainder of the sentiment in white on black cs.  A nest of gold thread and my favorite sequins finish off the card.

Are you ready to hop?  Remember, leaving a comment on each blog enters you for a chance to win one of two Unity prize packs!

Feeling Blue with Today's Challenge!

Hi Everyone!

I have been away from the craft desk for a while, as I went on another trip out to Colorado.  What a beautiful place Rocky Mountain National Park is!  Pics below, if interested, but you are here for the new challenge!
The challenge at The Challenge this week is all about your color choice- black and white plus one color!

Goodness, it seems I never can have enough sympathy cards.  Seems that is all I make these days.
I went CAS with this card, using a small floral image from Power Poppy's Countryside Bouquet Stamp Set.  I stamped the image several times, colored and then fussy cut them out.
For texture and depth, I used white embossing paste and a stencil to create a background for my flowers. Once dry, I adhered my flowers and the sentiment strip.  My favorite sequins finish it off.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stop by the blog for all of the other design team members' amazing inspiration and then JOIN us! 

I am linking up to Curtain Call Challenge as I was inspired by the colors in this weeks pic~

Gorgeous inspiration from The Challenge!

Hi Everyone! 

I am off exploring the mountains again, but the challenges continue at The Challenge!  This week's inspiration is just stunning! 


As this image practically screamed to use florals,  decided to use my brand new Honey Bee Stamps, Country Blooms Stamp Set and Happy Everything for the sentiment~


This is actually a mixed media piece; I used a chicken wire stencil (or honey comb, whichever you want to call it) for the background and colored in the negative space with a white Prismacolor pencil.  The pencil resists the watercoloring that I did next.  I like the almost bokeh effect that I got.
Check out all of he amazing inspiration- just gorgeous stuff- over at The Challenge

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you in the gallery!
