Growing in Unity Day 4

Hello all! Welcome to Day 4 of my Growing in Unity week!  What an honor to be able to participate in this fun experience.  Monday through Friday this week I will be posting a new project every day with the hopes to inspire you. Please consider becoming a follower by blog and/or Facebook page if you like what you see!  I'm creating a wide variety of themes to show how verasatile their stamps are!  Everyone who comments on my posts this week will be entered into a drawing for two $20 gift certificates to Unity Stamp Co.  Isn't that so generous of them to donate those prizes?  

Here is my fourth card of the week:
I wanted to make another fun card, so that is what I did!  I absolutely LOVE the So Glad You Were Born stamp set from Unity!  It is the cutest birthday set.  I normally don't craft a whole lot with purples for some reason, so I decided that would be the focal color.  The stamps were stamped using Scrapbook.com hybrid black ink, which is safe to color with alcohol markers.  I used Artify alcohol markers.  The cake was cut out with my Brother Scan N Cut.  The background dies are GMD Triple Layer Background dies (I only used two layers).  The turquoise layer was die cut with the largest GMD doily die.  All patterned papers are from DCWV's Confetti Party stack.  You can see a flip through of that stack on my YouTube channel if you wish!  I adhered all the layers with Bearly Art glue except the cake which was popped up with foam tape.  To embellish, I used some glitter dots and Grape Fizz Trendy Twine along the sentiment strip.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Growing In Unity Day 3

Hello all! Welcome to Day 3 of my Growing in Unity week!  What an honor to be able to participate in this fun experience.  Monday through Friday this week I will be posting a new project every day with the hopes to inspire you.  I'm trying to create a wide variety of themes to show how verasatile their stamps are!  Everyone who comments on my posts this week will be entered into a drawing for two $20 gift certificates to Unity Stamp Co.  Isn't that so generous of them to donate those prizes?  
Here is my third card of the week:
The stamp set that I used to create this card is Unity's Totally & Utterly Amazing (KOM 5/13).  Several of the stamps in that set have a great vintage vibe to them.  Both the image and sentiment were stamped in brown ink onto kraft cardstock.  I also stamped the image onto four different patterned papers from the DCWV Heirloom stack and fussy cut around the shirts and large necktie to paper piece them onto the kraft paper.  I then added details with white pencil and die cut two layers with GMD Big and Little Chain Slimline dies.  The kraft layer was popped up with foam tape, and I added a small embellishment with a white jute ribbon.

Here is my second card of the week:
I used a past Kit of the Month called In Love with Love (KOM 6/14) to create this card.  I stamped the beautiful lady and sentiment with Scrapbook.com hybrid black ink onto watercolor paper.  To watercolor the image, I used Distress Inks in the following colors: Vintage Photo, Peacock Feathers, Scattered Straw, and for the skin, I combined Antique Linen and Spun Sugar.  Once dry, I added a thin washi tape strip to the left side and three GMD Nautical Ocean enamel dots on the right.  I used Bearly Art glue as the adhesive.

Growing In Unity Day 1

Hello all! Welcome to my Growing in Unity week!  What an honor to be able to participate in this fun experience.  Monday through Friday this week I will be posting a new project every day with the hopes to inspire you.  Everyone who comments on my posts this week will be entered into a drawing for two $20 gift certificates to Unity Stamp Co.  Isn't that so generous of them to donate those prizes?  
Without further ado, here is my first card of the week:
I used a past Kit of the Month called In Love with Love (KOM 6/14) to create this card.  If you haven't looked at this kit, I highly recommend it.  It is filled with gorgeous stamps!  I stamped the tower of cups and sentiment with Scrapbook.com hybrid black ink and colored the cups with Artify alcohol markers.  I wrapped Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine around the focal panel and added a bow of it as well.  The patterned papers are from The Paper Studio's Pixey Stix paper pad and I finished off the card with a trio of matte white enamel dots on the left side.  I used Bearly Art glue as the adhesive.
