Growing in Unity: Day 5


Today is my last day as the Growing in Unity girl for the week.  It has been a lot of fun sharing different cards with you.  I hope you have enjoy seeing my different styles.  I would love it if you would be a follower of my blog, if you aren't already.  And don't forget to comment on all my projects throughout the week for a chance to win a 25 stamp grab bag from Unity Stamp Company!  The links for all the projects are at the bottom of this post.  You have until 11:59 MDT on Sunday, Aug 2nd to comment on all of the projects.  I will post the winner on Monday, August 3rd.

On Tuesday, I showed you a card that I was going to stick in my son's backpack on the first day of school in 2 weeks.  Well, I can't leave the little girl out.  She starts Kindergarten this year.  Talk about time flying!  For this card, I wanted "simple" words and fonts that I knew she could read.  So I grabbed my Be You stamps from the Itty Bitty series of stamps.  First I stamped it with Versamark and coated it with clear embossing powder.  After heating the powder, I watercolored over the paper.  I really wish you could see the pearl tones in the watercolors I used.  It is really stunning, just hard to capture on the camera.  I really thing she is going to like the colors, and the beautiful butterfly on the card.

Growing In Unity: Day 3


It is hard to believe that we are half way through my week as the Growing in Unity Gal.  It has been so fun to grab my ink and my stamp and make some projects for you.  Don't forget to comment on all my projects throughout the week for a chance to win a 25 stamp grab bag from Unity Stamp Company!  The links for all the projects are at the bottom of this post.

For today's project, I'm channeling my California girl roots.  It is hard for me to look at surfboard and not smile.  Surf's Up-Totally Cool from Unity is no exception.  I loved this stamp, and the opportunity to color the surfboards a little.  Some fun water paper, and a few dots, and I have another fun card I can use to remind my kids that they are pretty cool in my book.

Growing in Unity: Day 2


Hi!  I'm so excited to bring you my second installment of the Growing in Unity Gal week.  Don't forget to comment on all my projects throughout the week for a chance to win a 25 stamp grab bag from Unity Stamp Company!  The links for all the projects are at the bottom of this post.

School is starting soon, and I wanted to stick a little something in my son's backpack to let him know I'm thinking of him on the first day of school. When I saw the Good Luck stamp from the Good Luck, Remember This, I knew I had the perfect stamp for this.  And again, I reached into my Journaling Card stash to create the background.  A few pop dots and a little twine, and I have quick card.  I'm excited to write a little note in this card for my 3rd grader!

Growing in Unity Week!


Hi!  Welcome to my first day at the Growing in Unity Gal.  I'm excited to bring you new projects each day this week, featuring Unity Stamps.  Today, I will am featuring the Adventurous Itty Bitty stamp set.  I loved the fun balloon stamp.  I colored it with my watercolor pencils for a soft, flying through the air affect.  The cloud paper is actually a My Mind's Eye journaling card, cut down to fit a card front.  The "ad-ven-tur-ous" stamp is actually stamped in the label section of the card.  I'm sure I'm not the only one with a bunch of journaling cards sitting around collecting dust.  My new obsession in crafting is to use the cards to make quick and easy cards.  



Comment along all week for a chance to win a 25 stamp grab bag from Unity Stamps!

See you tomorrow with my next project!

Cheers!

Sweet Stamp Shop Designer Showcase



Good Morning!

I'm so excited to be a part of Sweet Stamp Shop's Grand Re-Opening Showcase.  If you haven't seen Sweet Stamp Shop's line of stamps, be sure you check it out!  I simply love the fun designs from Nicole and all the Sweet's.  To kick off the redesign/reopening of the shop and the blog, Sweet Stamp Shop is hosting a blog hop.  Hidden somewhere on the hop is a $25 gift certificate for 1 commenter, so make sure you leave a little love on all the blogs along the way for a chance to win.

For my project, I grabbed my Sail Away Sayings stamp set, and some pearl watercolors to create a background to feature the light house from the stamp set.  I picked a single star as the light guiding me home.
