Growing in Unity Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of my Unity Week Growing in ! I have been having so much fun playing with my Unity Stamps this week and decided to make a Christmas card. I know it is not even Thanksgiving yet, however, when you make cards you have to think ahead. This adorable ornament image came in the October 2011 Kit of the Month. Isn't it just perfect for paper piecing? I did add some sparkle to the letters with a Copic Spica Glitter Pen, but, it does not show up in the photo. It was a pretty quick and easy card to make. Hope you like it. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance at winning some Unity Stamps.

Have a Blessed Day!

Growing in Unity Day 3

Am I a Unity Addict? Well, judging by the shear number of Unity Stamps in my stash, I guess I am! I freely admit it and make no apologies. This hobby has brought me countless hours of creative joy and enabled me to make many cards that I have shared with others in times of joy, encouragement and sadness. Unity is consistently producing new and trendy images that a girl just has to have! You know it's true!

Here's two projects I made this week. First up is my non-card project made for the Unity Addicts Challenge UAC25. I have an ever growing collection of Copic markers, love them! So I thought I would make a pen holder to try and contain some of them.

Here's my project for this week's Unity Addicts Challenge, UAC26. The charge is to make a project that reminds you of a favorite Fairy Tale. I chose Peter Pan, which is not technically a Fairy Tale, but a great story nonetheless. I have had these fabulous Unity stamps in my collection for a while and I can not remember if I have ever used them before. However, I felt they were the perfect combo to depict Tinkerbell and her magic.

Thanks for coming by. Don't forget to leave a comment each day this week for your chance to win some wonderful Unity stamps.
Have a Blessed Day!

Growing in Unity Day Two

Hi Unity Friends! Hope you are having a great day and are enjoying the crisp Autumn weather. I have a couple of gift card sets to share with you today.

The first one is a little set of gift enclosure cards that are a very simple design that would be appropriate for a man. I love those leaf images from the September Kit of the Month, I have already used them a lot. The box to hold the gift cards is made from a used jewelry gift box with a matching belly band to hold it closed.

No doubt about it, this next gift card set is all girl! The Ooh La La French theme and pink, black and white color scheme makes this the perfect gift for a special woman in your life, such as mom, sister, best friend or favorite aunt. The gift card holder is made from one sheet of double sided 12 x 12 paper folded diagonally to create a pocket in front and back and lined with pink card stock. The set consists of 4 cards with matching envelopes which fit perfectly in the pockets of the holder.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these projects! Don't forget to leave a comment on each post this week to be entered into the prize drawing for some UNITY stamps!

See you tomorrow!

Growing in Unity Day One

Welcome to my blog. I am so thrilled to be celebrating my Growing in Unity Week with you! I discovered Unity Stamp Company about 18 months ago and have been a devoted customer ever since. I quickly became a Kit of the Club member not only because I loved the images offered, but, because it is such a great deal. The stamps are high quality rubber and the kits are only $26 per month, which works out to be a little over $1 per stamp!!! Seriously where can you get current, stylish, trendy, high quality stamps for that price?

The leaf image I used in the masculine cards below is from the September 2010 KOM. So cute and just in time for the fall season of stamping! I made the grungeboard from a recycled piece of cardboard from some packaging. I dry embossed, distressed the edges and inked it with some distress inks. It's easy and what a great feeling to recycle in this way.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these cards. I'll be back tomorrow with Day 2, so be sure and visit again. Please leave a much appreciated comment and become a follower of my blog. Leaving a comment each day gets you a chance at winning some FAB Unity goodies!
Thanks for stopping by!

Unity Friends With Flair

Hey there Unity Peeps! Welcome to my blog and FWF! I will be hosting Growing in Unity next week so make sure you come back on Monday for some more Unity goodness.

Here's a couple of holiday cards I made recently. I went a bit non-traditional with this Christmas Card using pink instead of normal Christmas colors.

This Thanksgiving card will go out to someone special in a few weeks. I used Copic markers to color the pumpkin image. Unity has so many fabulous images that are just perfect for coloring with Copics.

See you on Monday for GIU!
