This post includes a couple of gentle reminders.
There are only TWO days left to add this BEAUTIFULLY detailed Stamp of the Week to your crafty stash.
I have no doubt it will make YOU and others very happy.
Below is a picture of a card I put together using this awesome Stamp of the Week. Clean and simple cards have been all the rage the past few years and sending them to friends and loved ones can be much easier than the bulky dimensional cards. Right? Sometimes, though, I’m inspired by a stamp to build a card from the stamp up and then out. Do you know what I mean?
This week’s Stamp of the Week made me a card builder using layers, dimension, folds, pop dots, glossy accents, embossing folders, etc. I tried to stop after a couple of layers but I just kept building a card to showcase this fancy bird. It’s pretty fancy and deserves the attention I think. It’s fun to color.
I’ve included a very QUICK video for dimensional demonstration purposes only. I just couldn’t capture the dimension of the above card with my camera. It’s quick, I promise, under 30 seconds.
Here’s some inspiration for you all using this beautiful stamp from other members of our Design Team at Unity. They are all so beautiful and fancy, clean and simple, and some with layers and dimension.

Here is a little something about Kristy:
"Hi! I am very excited to be the Growing in Unity girl this week. I love that Unity Stamp Company has so much variety to choose from – from chic to humorous. I’ve had fun creating all my projects for my Growing in Unity and using a little bit of each.
Stamping has always held a special place in my heart…which has blossomed into card making, scrapping and general memory keeping. Today, I find my crafting time to be my sanity. I am very lucky to have a wonderfully supportive husband. Without him, I wouldn’t be able to sneak a few hours here and there to craft. I am a stay at home mom to 2 bundles of joy (…and energy). Both my son and daughter like to get into my scrap room and play with my stamps, papers and buttons – especially the buttons! I love that I can make a record of memories – and not just holidays and special occasions, but everyday moments too! I will continue to create, mostly just for this Mama’s Sanity.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects this week. You can see all my projects on http://mamasanity.blogspot.com."
Now check out this great project she made:
