{2.28.2013} post no. 2 – Unity THURSDAY

**for my CAS(E) this Sketch post, click HERE**

Whoop Whoop!

It is THE best day of the week in blogland!!!
Big happenings in the Unity Stamp Company world.
BLOG HOP with the Unity Design team and
GREAT, AMAZING promotions going on.

All the action starts on the Unity blog and continues through the design team blogs.

I am using the Unity {be inspired} Challenge for inspiration today.
Have you played along yet?
Well you most definitely should!
Such great ideas below.

LOVE those colors.

All of these images can be found in February’s kit of the month {let love grow}.
They are so amazing and lots of great ways to combine all the stamps in this kit.

I started out with that amazing wood plank background.
GORGEOUS, right?
Then layered the flowers over the top in the challenge colors: red and teal.
I finished off with a tag and the perfect sentiment – praying for you.

Next up,
don’t forget Unity released their exclusive wood stamps
for St. Patrick’s Day.
LOVE them.

I’m using the LARGE shamrock with the sentiment from the label stamp.
Just a little masking and it can be separated out.
To give this simple design a little something fun,
I used an X-acto knife to cut out 3 of the leaves and pop them up from behind.
Neat-o, right?

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
We’ll be giving away 3 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs.

That is all from me, head on over to the amazing Natalie next!!!!

Here are the list of blogs hopping today.
