Happy Saturday… I’m back again with another fun card for Unity Stamp Company. I’m baseing my card on the sketch above and sharing some inspiration for Mother’s Day using two fabulous Unity sentiment kits. Featured Stamp Set Girl Truly Mama’s & Grandma’s The Project The Details I’m combining three of my favorite things for this card: gold embossing, Distress Oxide Ink blending and washi tape. What an amazing combo. I also made my little gift bag match my card by using the same stamp sets. What a great way to coordinate things. The bag was used with THIS METHOD. It’s …

Two Cards from One Sketch + Video

Hello Friends… I thought I’d bring back a fun feature to the blog… sketches. I LOVE sketches. I’m very graphic and visual.

I’m also using all the same stamped images from some amazing Unity Stamp Company …

[4.3.16] Assemble This! Sketch No. 3

Happy April friends… time to play with a new Assemble This Sketch.  It’s a pretty one and I’ll hope it will spark lots of inspiration.

[3.6.2016] Assemble This! Sketch No. 2

Assemble This!
