[3.19.15] unity thursday

Happy Thursday Yay for THURSDAY!!!  Hope you are having fun hopping with the Unity design team.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog. Today, I have a set of cards using the brand new sentiment kit for March/April… Thanks Above & Beyond.   Lots of amazing sayings for thank you cards and I just love the butterfly and flower images.

[3.15.2015] paper smooches sparks

Anything Goes Check it out… anything goes this week in the SPARKS challenge from Paper Smooches. Sometimes the simplest cards are the prettiest. I started out with the watercolored background using Distress Inks and let it dry completely.  While it dried, I die cut the “thanks” three times out of white cardstock and then once from gold cardstock.  Then, I stacked and glued them together.  I hit my watercolored piece with some heat to make sure it was completely dry and then white embossed the sentiment.  Stray embossing powder will stick to any bit of moisture, so I wanted to …

[12.3.2014] farewell Paper Crafts & Scrapbook Magazine

Farewell PC&S It is a sad day that we are all coming together to say farewell to another crafting magazine.  I’m so sad that Paper Crafts & Scrapbook Magazine is shutting its doors.

[8.26.2014] thanks

Thanks I’m blogging on the Unity blog today, so of course, I’m sharing here as well.  I never get tired of creating with Unity stamps.  There is always something new a fresh being released. For today, I’m sharing a card using the current kit of the month: Summer Collapsed into Fall.  I love that we are moving into my favorite season and stamps to match. I did some inlaid die cutting with the ‘thanks’ and the tag.  This is an easy technique that people love.  They always want to know how it was done.  I stamped some falling leaves on …
