[8.18.2015] Unity Tuesday

Unity Tuesday

Let’s kick off this night with some Unity love.  All the action starts on the Unity blog.  THIS week, we have our first NEW {be inspired} challenge starting too.  Woo hoo.  Take a look at this AMAZING fall inspiration.

And a brand new sentiment kit designed by yours truly.

Everything comes full turn

These sentiments will fit some of the previous Everything series stamp labels too.

These sentiment beauties are perfect for foiling.  I foiled it in gold on the vellum and then sewed the die cut onto my card based after filling it with some teal and red hearts. Super simple, super pretty.  The stamps do all the work for you and really do shine.

I also have a card to share  from last month’s KOM – Halo Dirty.

This is a SUPER easy way to add that watercolor look without thinking about it.  All you need is some Distress Inks, a spray bottle of water and a slick surface.  So easy to create a set of cards for your stash or to giveaway.

Watch this Assemble This! video on how easy it is to create that lovely watercolor background.

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.
