DT Tuesday with Mandi

Hello Friends!

It's Mandi here with another DT Tuesday.

Here is a card I made for my friend with a matching envelope.


I stamped the flower in the corner of the card and coloured with my watercolours.

I wanted to leave a lot of white space on the card.

 So I stamped the sentiment directly underneath the flowers. 

I added some rhinestones to give it a wee bit of bling.

Then layered it with black card then on to a white card base.

I decorated the corner of the envelope with the same design minus the rhinestones.

The stamps I used today are from the June kit of the month  Beautiful One

The sentiment is from the May sentiment kit You Can & You Will.

**********************

Now on to some cards that caught my eye for pick of the week.

Terri Burson made this beautiful set of cards using the Insightful Meadows stamp.

I love the colours she used they are so dreamy.


I also loved this one from Elisa De Sena using the Basket Full of Wishes stamp.

I love her bright colour palette it is so pretty!!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! 

I will leave you with this courtesy of Pinterest.

KOTM Monday



Hi Sharon here and today I'm blogging about one of my favourite Unity products. It's the Kit Of The Month. It's such a good value kit and you can use the images and sentiments in lots of ways. This month's is called "Glittering Eyes".

JULY-2016-KOM-GLITTERING-EYES

So far I have made this lovely set of 6x4 cards for my project life album or you could use them as toppers for your cards. I've coloured the images using  distress inks as watercolours.


I also made this door hanger.


I get really excited when I know my kit is coming through my letterbox each month and you can too. All the details are here on the Unity site.

I hope I've inspired you to take a look at the kit it really is worth having!!

SMAK Saturday!

GREETINGS Unity friends!
It’s Camille here today sharing a mixed media canvas I made using the July SMAK Kit.


I used the SMAK Kit, Hearts Reflection, with layers of printed/stamped tissue paper, gel medium, and applied various colors of Tim Holtz Distress Paints and inks. It was the most fun I’ve had in a few weeks. Did you notice the butterfly twinkling in the middle of the eye?

As always, every month's images are perfect for mixed media projects, scrapbooking, and everyone at Unity’s favorite, card making.

Here’s a look at the July SMAK kit, Hearts Reflection.

Inspiration Wednesday with Angeline

Happy Wednesday! It's Angeline here.

Lately I've been seeing so many watercolor paintings that are AMAZING and I'm only starting out --- so I may not be as good as some I'm inspired by. But hey.. Art is one's way of exploring and everyone has their own way of expressing themselves. So, art is never about being perfect but having FUN doing it :)

So, since I really wanted to paint some flowers --- I decided to "cheat" and use the beautiful poppy stamps from Unity Stamp's Kit of the Month 06/2016 "Beautiful One"

Unity Stamp: Inspiration Wednesday with Angeline #unitystampco #scrappyscrappy #poppy #watercolor #chalkink #flowers #card #papercraft #cardmaking #emboss #butterfly #gold

I inked up the flowers using VersaMagic chalk inks and mixed the colors before stamping. What I love about chalk inks is -- the colors are so pretty and it does mimic the watercolor painting feel.

And BONUS feature is -- the ink stays wet for a while so I was able to even emboss my butterfly partially! :)

So, do try it out for yourself and show me what you made in our Facebook Unity {show & tell} group.

Have a wonderful day and DON'T be afraid to TRY new things :)


Growing in Unity Wednesday


Welcome to Growing in Unity! This week Sarah is up sharing her wonderful Unity creations!

Meet Sarah:


Here is a little something about Sarah:

"Hello!  My name is Sarah and I am from Minnesota and I LOVE crafting.  I dabbled with paper crafts a long time ago--my sister actually used to rubber stamp when she was in Jr. High and I made soooooo much fun of her...ooops!  It wasn't until about 10 years ago when I attended my first in home stamping party that I really loved what I saw, but never thought that I could "do that."  However, in about the last 5 years I've really bloomed in my crafting and figured out that I kinda love stamping... a lot!  It's my relaxation and creative outlet.  I love, love, love to make cards. And if you've followed my blog at all you will find I simply can't resist a great pun-- I love punny stamps oh so much and I love that Unity keeps bringing about more and more puns to keep me crafting :)  In my free time I love spending time with my friends and family.  I work full time in Property Management and that keeps me super busy.  When I'm not working I love going to college hockey games and baseball games with my hubby.  I also enjoy sitting back and sipping on bubble tea with my bestie!" 

Check out this great set Sarah created:


Be sure to swing on by Sarah's blog each day this week for loads of great inspiration and your chance to win some Unity goodies!

Thanks!
