Unity Thursday

You know what day it is… Unity THURSDAY!!!  Time for some hopping fun with the Unity design team.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog.  There’s always fun stuff going on.

THIS is seriously cool…

A Unity tee and a SUPER adorable stamp!!!  Seriously???  Mine is already in my cart!!!

More sales and releases on the website, you must check it out.

I’m excited to share a couple cards with you today.  First, I’m using this week’s Stamp of the Week.


IMG_3796Not thinking ahead, I put my little bird on some Neenah cardstock.  Then, of course, I decided I wanted to watercolor my little bird.  Oops.  Neenah is not good for regular watercolor.  It curls and breaks down quickly from the water.  So, I thought it would be a good time to break out my Distress markers.  As long as you keep the water minimal and don’t layer too much you are good to go.

The bird is actually popped up.  Kinda hard to see with the angle of the photo.  I added some glitter (Wink of Stella) and Glossy Accents at the end.  You can probably see the glitter a little better in my photo to the left.  So hard to photograph that bit of sparkle.

And I also have a card using one of my favorite sentiment kits: Hello… Thank you.


Those curved sentiments are at the top of my list of faves.  I designed them to be a wrap around to the flower.  I layered that doodled flower on top of the tag and stamped the sentiment around.  The tag is then popped up from the card too.  A little glossy accents at the center of the flower gives it some shine without obstructing the design of the stamp underneath.  Cool huh.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
We’ll be giving away 2 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs.

Here are all the girls hopping today…  just click on the next pretty girl in line.
