Growing In Unity Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Today is a Growing in Unity Blog Hop! I just love playing with my Unity Stamps and was excited that it was time for the GIU gals that already posted this year to hop.

I was torn on which set to use.  I have so many I love and so many that I haven't used yet :) I did make several cards and this one was my favorite.

I used the Hang In There Lady Set (it's on sale today!).  It's just such a cute little lady bug and it comes with three sentiments that I love.


This is a great stamp to make a quick card with.  There's not a lot of coloring.  I used my red Zig Clean Color marker to color the ladybug in and to add a bit of color to the word wishes.  I then used a clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to wish flower, hearts around the ladybug and the word wishes.  Adding it the the wishes made it a watercolor effect and I liked the way it turned out.


I used a border die to add some detail to the white and red layers on the side.  And I finished the card off with three red enamel hearts.


Be sure to comment on all the blogs in hop for your chance to win a Unity Prize package!  There will be two winners :)

Trendy Twine -- Smile Treats

Hello there!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and I've made some super quick treats to show you.  I used Totally Raspberry Trendy Twine, Shorty Candy Chutes, the Smile Stamp Set, and a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.

I bought the cute pink and silver Hershey Kisses after Valentines day on sale--that's the best way to buy chocolate.  But I figured pink and silver are good for any time and don't just need to be for Valentine's day.


After filling the Shorty Candy Chute with the candy, I wrapped my Totally Raspberry Trendy Twine around the outside of the box and tied a bow at the top.  This does make it wobbly to stand up, but I do like the look.  Then I die cut the banner and stamped my Smile sentiment and finished it off with a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.  I just stuck it on the box with a page dot.


This was so quick and easy to make!  Be sure to get some of these fun supplies to have on hand for quick treats :)

Trendy Twine -- Hi!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today. I haven't been crafting lately and I've really missed it -- crafting makes me happy!

Today, I used some fabulous Totally Raspberry Trendy Twine along with the Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.  These are totally my colors LOL!


I used a Unity Stamp Co. Kit for my stamps.  This otter is just too cute and it's in a valentine kit but included the cute hi stamp too.  After coloring in the otter, I cut it out with a circle die and then glued my Totally Raspberry Trendy Trendy Twine around the outside and added a bow to the side.  


I pop dotted the circle onto my card.  Then I added some Raspberry Cupcake Sequins to the card.



Have a fabulous day!!

Trendy Twine -- Me & U Card

Hello there!

I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I made a shaker card! I used Totally Red Trendy Twine, a stamp from the You & Me Planner Stamp Set, and sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley

I started out with some red cardstock for my base.  Then I found some red patterned paper for the front that I cut my heart into.  I then glued my Totally Red Trendy Twine around the heart and added a bow at the bottom. 


For the inside shaker sequins, I picked through the Christmas Shaker Medley and pulled out out some clear, red and red seed beads.  I also added some white seed beads from my stash. There are some square red sequins, but I do like them in the heart.  I also glued some of the same sequins on the card front.


I used a die cut for the stamped sentiment coming off the heart where I added another sequin.  Additionally, I glued a strip of the Totally Red Trendy Twine on the end to look like the tag is under the twine (it could have been if I knew what I was adding before I glued everything down!).

Lots of foam tape later and my card is finished!  I hope you visit the store for all the deals this month before they disappear!

Trendy Twine -- XOXO Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine Today and  I have some quick and easy non sweet treats to show you.  I used the Skinny Candy BagsTotally Red Trendy Twine, and the You & Me Planner Stamp Set.


I cut the heart tag from my Cricut Machine.  I think they came from the Doodlebug cartridge.  After putting the pencils in the Skinny Candy Bags and sealing them, I punched a small hole in the top and thread my Totally Red Trendy Twine through the hole and around the top two times.  Then I put the twine through the tag hole and tied a bow--easy peasy!


I just knew the XOXO stamp from the You & Me Planner Stamp Set would be perfect with the pencils.  I found the pencils at the Target Dollar Spot -- love that place :) I also used some red Nuvo Drops all around the heart.  Those are so fun to use!
