GIU Gal ~ Day 1

I am so excited and honored to be the Growing in Unity Gal this week! Each day I will post a creation I have made using stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  This is my second post on my blog today.  If you are looking for my Trendy Twine post, click HERE.

Today is Day #1, and even though it is Christmas, I decided to go with a general card theme.
The stamp set from Unity that I used is called In Love With Love (KOM 6/14).  I used brown ink for the stamps.  The patterned papers are from G45's Home Sweet Home collection.
I made two cards, reversing the color scheme.  The dies I used on this card include GMD scalloped stitched rectangle and stitched rectangle dies and Cottage Cutz stitched oval die.
Here is a close up of that pretty image stamp.
I embellished with Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine and white pearls.
GIVEAWAY: 

The wonderful people at Unity Stamps are giving away 25 random stamps to two lucky people who comment on my GIU posts this week. Be sure to leave a comment for each post this week (Monday through Friday) for the most chances to win! I will post the winners next week here on my blog.

  25. You offer an interesting way to use brown as your image color. It’s much softer than always using black.

  26. Simply beautiful card. The paper choices just showcase the stamp without detracting from it. I need to take a cue and stamp on patterned paper more. I am always fearful that doing so will detract but I think you have given me the courage to try.
