{8.15.2012} Unity + Ribbon Carousel

Unity and Ribbon Carousel It is a fun day!!! Unity Stamp Company and the Ribbon Carousel are hopping together. Lots of great stamps and trims to inspire you. Let’s get to it.

What a delightful stamp this …

Hello everyone, I am up on the Unity blog today using the current stamp of the week. The pocket watches are amazing.  Nothing like a timeless piece for any type of card.  I love the saying too.  Perfect for that loved one you are thinking about.  I went with more of a masculine theme.  The arrow is my own creation and added the little heart as an accent.  The number background is from a SMAK kit.  Seriously, these kits are so handy for a card maker as well.  When I stamped the sentiment, I masked over it and then stamped …
