DT Tuesday + Picks of the Week!

Hello Unity peeps! It seems like ages since I've done a DT Tuesday post! I'm excited to be back and share some cards I made inspired by the newest {Be Inspired} Challenge!

For this card, I used the card sketch challenge. I am obsessed with the newest Vintage Era Background Kit. I stamped the script bird in gold and colored my Jaqueline Girl with Copic markers.

This is such a simple sketch with a lot of ways to twist it up and make it your own! My next card uses BOTH the sketch and the Color Challenge...

This card was created using the October KOTM, "Break out the Ugly Sweaters", and "Vintage Era Background Kit".  I colored the mittens with Copic markers and layered them on papers that matched the color challenge.

The Unity Be Inspired Challenge is open to anyone! Just use your Unity stamps!!! The prizes are amazing, but you need to enter for your chance to win!

It's time for my picks of the week! Here are some fabulous Unity projects that caught my eye!

The bright colors and fun layers on this card really stood out to me. Rebecca also entered it in the current Be Inspired Challenge! 


I really loved the elegance of this next card. The variety of whites and the bold blue snowflake are stunning! This card is by Kali Mayne Everton and I spotted it in the Unity Show and Tell Facebook page.


Lastly, I wanted to share this gorgeous pink ribbon card by Sheryl Kemper. It's perfect for October; Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I found this card on the Unity Show and Tell Facebook page.

you know you want it...

Hello my wonderful peeps!



It is nearing the end of yet another week… man how time flies! This also means that you are almost out of time to get this week's SOTW! 

But don't fret, I'm here to tell you that you can still sign up!
 (close one, I know! LOL!)

Ok, so here's the dealio…

When you sign up for Stamp of the Week (click HERE), each week, Unity will send an awesome stamp to your mailbox. EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK. Yup. These are stamps you can ONLY get if you are a member of the club. 

The DT has been busy making samples with this sweet image ALL week… if you click HERE, you can scroll down to see a nice little gallery featuring this set.

Now, in case you are being a fence sitter, let me share something I made super fast with this week's stamp
 I decided to keep it nice and simple…

Stamp it with Distress ink

Use a water brush or paintbrush dipped in water to smear the ink and "color" the image.

Ink the edges… then attach to card… 

And that, is how I keep it simple. :)

Ok. Now you are brimming with ideas for this stamp, go on over to the Unity site and sign up if you haven't already… While you are there, do some shopping! We've got some awesome sales going on right now! 

and guess what… partial proceeds are going to be donated to a good cause!
