DT Thursday!

Hello Unity friends!  It's Karen sharing my card using
a few of my favorite Unity kits!

I created this 5.25 x 5.25 squared card, and created a 
simple and subtle background using the dots stamp from the 
Jan 2015 "Magic of Beginnings" KOTM.  I used white Prima chalk
to capture some softness to the card.

Then, the rest is pretty easy just stacking a few embellishments like, tags, envelopes,
buttons, a wooden heart, and beautiful flower, with a sweet stamped sentiment
from the Dutch Mustard Soup kit.

I have a great Unity pick to share with you today from Jeannie T.!!
Love the background, the distressing, and beautiful coloring of this
sweet stamped image....AMAZING and GORGEOUS!

Stop by her blog to see more of her work, and leave her some love...

Hope you are having a wonderful day, and I will leave you with this thought... 

Hugs & Smiles,

Long and Skinny Card Sets

Happy Humpday! This is Rachel, and I have a fun Inspiration Wednesday post today... I was actually inspired by a single stamp found in the August 2015 Kit of the Month...

I'm not exactly sure why, but this stamp just seemed very 'art deco' style to me (maybe it's because I was also staring at the August 2015 SMAK kit... super art deco). So I decided to make a set of very simple, long, and skinny autumn cards.

This card is definitely my favorite of the set, and also the one that sparked the idea. I inked the stamp with three different colors of ink (shown in first photo) which give it a fun ombre autumn look. Each card measures 6.25" x 3.5".

This card uses only one stamp from the August KOTM. I masked off the branches so I could get a different color ink on the sentiment than on the leaves... 

This was my tester, so you can see that I decided on different colors in the end :) I masked the stamp using Post It Tape.

Another card long and skinny card! I inked the leaf in a variety of Distress Ink colors, similar to card #1. 

I think that turquoise is so overlooked as a fantastic autumn color! I love how the big aqua bling dots make the cards really pop. I promise you, ass teal to your fall color palette! You won't regret it.

Thanks for joining me on this gorgeous SEPTEMBER hump day! The best month of the year ;) 
I hope you grab your latest Kit of the Month and challenge yourself to make a set of long and skinny (and simple!) cards!

Growing in Unity Wednesday

Hey there and welcome to another fun week of Growing in Unity!!  This week Rachel is up sharing her fabulous Unity creations!

Meet Rachel:

Here is a little something about Rachel:

"I am Rachel Bogner. I am a SAHM and Farmer's Wife. When I am not crazy busy chasing my kids or helping out with the farm, I can usually be found in my craft studio working on orders or trying something new. 

I have been crafting my entire life. I got into paper crafting when I was in the eighth grade when I wanted to make my own envelopes to send to my pen pal in Italy. I used old scene photos from the National Geographic Magazines we had around the house. 
Scrapbooking became a huge part of my life when my first son was born in 2007, and I shortly turned to card making when I was taken to a stamping party. I have been a Unity Stamp Addict since 2009, when I first purchased the May Kit of the Month. I have SOOOO much Unity, I have ran out of places to hide.... I mean store it!

I hope everyone enjoys seeing what I make during this week!

This is also my birthday week (It was yesterday!) so make sure to leave a comment on each post during this week because I will be giving away two prizes from Unity Stamp Company, picked from the people who comment, as well as ONE extra prize from me, which has become my birthday tradition for my week!"

Here a card Rachel made this week:

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

Till next week
