[6.16.2014] in love with love today

In Love with Love Today I’m sharing this card on the Unity blog today. I’m featuring that big doodled cluster of flowers (that just might have been designed by little ol’ me).  I thought about coloring it in, but then decided that I loved the black and white look.  It just needed a little pop of color somewhere.  Thus, we have the pink polka dot paper in the background.  I also wanted to add a sentiment but didn’t want to cover up that beautiful design.  I opted for a vellum banner with the sentiment embossed in black.  I hid the …

[6.1.2014] Unity Stamp Co and the Curtain Call Challenge

Unity Stamp Co and the Curtain Call Challenge Unity Stamp Co is sponsoring the Curtain Call Challenge this week and asked if our design team would like to play along.  Well, yeah, of course!!!  Super fun. The Curtain Call inspiration photo includes lots of white rocks, with a clean and simple look.  It made me think of something with lots of white space and a simple design.  So, I decided to “rock” out a clean and simple card.  Haha, corny, I know.  So sorry.

{5.4.2014} a lovely day

a lovely day… Popping in today to share this lovely little butterfly card with you.  This pretty little butterfly is one of my designs and is FREE with any purchase this weekend at Unity Stamp Co. My favorite butterfly technique is to stamp two butterfly and use just the wings of the second to pop up and add dimension to the stamp.  Like the butterfly could just flutter off the page.  It is easy to do, just trim out the wings, bend them a little and then use a dot of liquid glue to hold the center to the stamped …
