Bright Little Chick - NEW Stamp of the Week

Good morning! I'm stopping by to introduce a brand new Stamp of the Week! This little cutie is perfect for spring - a season that I imagine we are all ready for by now!





Make sure and pop over to the website and read about the Stamp of the Week if you aren't familiar - a super adorable stamp lands in your mailbox each week, for less than you probably spend on coffee in a week! A fabulous surprise - and who doesn't love surprises!!


I kept it pretty simple on my card - some pattern paper layers, a bit of simple Copic coloring, and a touch of jute twine to finish it off!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Inspiration Wednesday

Hello Unity friends! Shemaine here with this week's Inspiration Wednesday post. Today I want to inspire you to create with kraft paper, Distress inks and embossing folders. I love the mini blending inks from Ranger. The colors are amazing and fun to create with. They also blend nicely on kraft paper.

I was inspired by this color palette via Pinterest and I knew exactly how I wanted to use them to create today's project.



For this project, I chose to create with Peacock feathers, Spiced marmalade, and Twisted citron. Blend each color on your card base that's cut at 4 X 5 1/3.



One I have applied all the colors, I like to go back in and blend them again to make the color richer.



Now I am ready to emboss the inked paper with my favorite embossing folder from Anna Griffin. It's called Poppy.


Place the cardstock inside the embossing folder and run it thru your embossing machine. The result is stunning! Kinda looks like embossed leather right?



 Now to add some dimension I add some white ink to one of the images from the February KOTM.



Stamp the image randomly on the embossed design and sprinkle with clear embossing powder. Then using your heat tool, emboss the design.


Next I used Versamark to stamp this image on the same kraft cardstock and emboss with gold embossing powder and cut the image out. I repeated the same process but cut out the butterfly to layer over the top of the first one.

Now you are ready to assemble the card. I used twine (found in the $1 bin at Target) to tie a bow and Therm-O-Web 3D foam squares to attach the butterfly to the card base. I stamped my sentiment inside the card since the front looked great just the way it is.



Now before I go, I want to inspire you with a quote I found that spoke to me!





I'm so glad you're part of Unity's community!  Keep crafting and have a creative day!

DT Tuesday!



Hi there Unity friends!  It's Karen sharing one of Unity's
February releases designed by Phyllis Harris!

I love the sweetness of this little girl, and I wanted to make sure she was highlighted 
so beautifully, so I kept the background papers in soft beige colors.


She's colored in Copics today, and I even added a little white chalk
around the edges of the card and sweet die cut flowers!

In case, you'd like to put this in your shopping cart, just 
click on this link, to grab this kit!


Next, I would love to share some of my Unity picks for the week!
These two picks come from the UNITY {show & tell} FB Group!

Come and join in to play in weekly challenges, share your projects, and
meet other Unity friends! 

First up, this awesome card set created by Yvette Williams,  that she titles "Shades of Beauty"!
I love the beautiful color combinations and the special word  Yvette
highlights for each beauty.  This is one unique and gorgeous set of cards!!!

Well HELLO KOTM Monday!!!!

Hi Peeps!!
I hope your weekend was AWESOME!!
I watched TWO movies while playing with this month's KOTM so you know mine was!!
Unexpected Places, don't you love it?  Every stamp is so fantastic.  I also must say, wait until you see next month's OHHH EMMMM GEEE It is AMAZING and I know I say everyone of these is my fave, but goodness just you wait!
You will not want to miss either month!!
 Now that I am looking at this tag, I see there will not be a way to tie it to the handle of a gift bag!  LOL  I guess I'll tape it to the front of a plain bag with some fun washi tape instead!   I think that flower in there is so cute!  I glued a second tag to the back to keep it in by the stem.
 This bookmark I only owned for a few minutes.  My 9 year old snagged it right up and wanted to give it to her coffee loving teacher!  She wrote the sweetest note on the back.  
 I made this bookmark for Carlee.  I actually said to her out loud yesterday at the library, Carlee, you are getting too many books while I had books in my hands almost to my chin LOL
Giant tags make excellent bookmarks and while your fave reader marks their place they will think about how much you love them!  : )  
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  We sure appreciate it!  Be sure to check out the killer sale Ang and Whit have going on too!  You can see the stamps here and don't forget the stamps that are not memberships are all 40% off.
Have a beautiful day!
