Growing in Unity Day # 5

Well its my last day for Growing in Unity and I hope you enjoyed the projects, I know I have enjoyed creating them.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each day this week for your chance to be one of two lucky people who will receive a random selection of 25 Unity Stamps. 

This last card is a Christmas card I made using the cutest snowman stamps called Little Frosty Friends.  I love making easel cards, they are kind of my go to card.  I think it must be the size and shape (I love square cards) that make it my favorite and while I try not to over do them I couldn't not do one for this week.   For the stopper on the easel part I cut out two poinsettias from the Spellbinders set and used sequins as the centres.  I really like how it turned out and will use it for some of my Christmas cards this season.  I can't give everyone one because many people don't know how to open/prop them up.

Supplies used:  Unity Stamps, MME Lost and Found Christmas, Memento Ink, Spellbinders Poinsettias and Lacy Ovals, Sequins, MS Holly Punch, AC Cardstock

Growing in Unity Day # 4

Welcome to day 4 of my Growing in Unity week, I hope you have enjoyed the projects so far and if you haven't already done so don't forget to leave a comment for more chances to win.  At the end of the week I will be drawing two names from all the comments and they will receive 25 random Unity Stamps prize package.

As I mentioned on yesterdays project I have been making card sets for the teachers/day care people for Christmas gifts.  This is one of the card sets I have made the strips are made from paper using Blossom Glam by Craftsmith, I need to come up with a more masculine set for the male teacher but this one is for my daughters grade 4 teacher.  It suits her personality and judging by her own stamp collection I think she may be a crafter too.

Supplies used: Unity Stamps, Craft Smith Blush Glam, Twinery Gold Twine, CTMH Ink, Spellbinders Labels 22

Growing in Unity Day # 3

Welcome to day 3 of my Growing in Unity, it's my second time doing it and it is a complete blast.  I am a huge fan of Unity Stamps, and while I used to prefer clear stamps I have now become a red rubber fan.  I love the quality of the stamps and while some companies make great quality clear some do not and I find I don't have to worry about the image quality when am using them.  Please leave a comment on each day of my blog and I will draw two winners to receive 25 random Unity Stamps.

With the Christmas season coming up I need to get some teacher and daycare gifts done.  I used the Angie Girl Jen (teacher), and colored the image and then fussy cut it out.  I then stamped the blackboard on black cardstock and heat embossed the white ink with embossing powder to get a more vibrant image.   I will be giving the teachers a set of thank you cards as a gift so be sure to check out tomorrows post to see one of the sets.

Supplies used: Unity Stamps, Craft Smith Mint Pink Paper, Shinhan Markers, Memento Ink, Ranger Embossing Powder, CTMH Ink

Growing in Unity Day # 2

Welcome back to my blog for day two of my Growing in Unity.  If you missed yesterdays post don't forget to go back because at the end of the week I will be selecting two random winners from the comments to receive a random pack of 25 stamps. 

I always struggle to make boyish or masculine cards but my little boy just turned 6 so I am getting better at doing them.  This card is a uses the birthday stamp from the July kit of the month, I love this birthday stamp, it's so versatile and pairs well with my extensive spellbinders collection since it is a circle shape.  Too be honest my son wasn't impressed with his card it was the batman cake I made that he loved but I hope when he gets older he appreciates my cards (wishful thinking I know).

Supplies used:  Unity Stamps July KOTM, Memento Ink, AC Cardstock, DCWV Monsters and Robots Paper, Spellbinders Standard Circles Small and Large.
