Growing In Unity Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Today is  Growing in Unity Blog Hop for the Growing in Unity Gals from July and August. It was so fun to be able to have been a GIU gal and I'm happy to play along today.  You should have just come from Roni's Blog.  Be sure to leave a comment on each stop for a chance to win one of 2 Unity filled prize packs!


For my hop card, I used the fabulous Aging Gorgeously - July 2020 Sentiment Kit. This kit has a lot of sentiments and this beautiful flower stamp.  There is also a fun stamp with 4 candles on it!


I choose some purple Copic Markers to color in my flowers with green stems.  Then I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers. I stamped the sentiment on a banner I die cut out and used foam tape to attach it.  Then I added some purple enamel dots.

You're next stop on the hop is Allison. Head over to check out her amazing project!

Halloween Take Out Boxes with Annie's Paper Boutique

Hello Trendy Twine fans! Welcome to the first day of October. The design team is so excited to be crafting for the upcoming holidays, that we decided to have a guest design team group join in all the fun! Today we are having a group post with both the regular design team AND the guest design team to get the creativity flowing for the Halloween season. Please join us in welcoming the amazing guest designers! Be sure to hop over to the Trendy Twine blog to see the projects from all of the Trendy Twine Gals!

My Trendy Twine color is Grape Licorice and we are all using the Clear Mini Take Out Boxes. In addition, I used the Happy Halloween Stamp Set, Grape Tag-Its, Grape Licorice Batty Sequins and Trendy Page Dots.


I filled my boxes with 5 mini Peppermint Patties.  They were a perfect fit for the Clear Mini Take Out Boxes and I they were purple wrapped to match my twine. Next I made a band around the box.  It's not perfect in the back, but I made it work 😉


Next, I trimmed down my Grape Tag-Its a bit and stamped and embossed my sentiment from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set on it.  Then I added my Trendy Page Dots and the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins.  Finally, I made a Grape Licorice Trendy Twine tail for the tag.

Please be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the projects from the Design Team and the Guest Designers!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Autumn Blessings

Hello all! I'm posting at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today sharing a fun fall card with you. I used the fabulous Twisted Trendy Twine on my project today.




I used a fun autumn stamp set from My Favorite Things and colored the pumpkins orange and teal for my fall colors.  Next, I stamped the sentiment on the oval die cut and glued down my Twisted Teal Trendy Twine around it and added the bow. 

Then I used foam tape to adhere the oval and the pumpkins on the oval.  Lastly, I finished it off with some fall enamel dots to match my colors.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine--Fall Greetings

 Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine! today and I'm sharing a fall treat with you using Twisted Teal Trendy Twine, Hello Fall Stamp Set, Large Candy BagsKraft Tag-Its and Krazy for Kraft Trendy Page Dots.


I don't know about you, but I'm so ready for fall and the cooler temps!  So it was easy to focus on a fall treat to share today.  I bought some Fall Hershey's Miniatures and loaded them into the Large Candy Bags.  You can fit 8 in there easily. Then I decided to make a wrap for it like you could for a candy bar with some fall paper.

Next, I pulled out my Kraft Tag-Its and stamped the Fall and Greetings sentiments from Hello Fall Stamp Set onto it.  I added my Krazy for Kraft Trendy Page Dots then my Twisted Teal Trendy Twine tag topper.  Lastly, I finished it off with some fall leaves I cut out with my Cricut.

Have a great day!

Growing in Unity Day 5 -- Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone!  Today is my last day for Growing in Unity with Unity Stamp Company.  It's been a super fun week and I'm so glad I have been able to share these cards with you! Today I used the Little Boos set and made a slimline card!


I am loving the slimline cards and have made just a few. I thought this set was perfect for a slimline card so that I didn't have to cram the stamps in.  There's not a lot of coloring to this card but it turned out cute I think..

The base just needed a bit more, so I used some Orange Licorice Trendy Twine and Orange Licorice Batty Sequins. The slimline dies are from Lawn Fawn. And I did use foam tape for the top layer. This is just a super fun stamp set!

Don't forget to leave your comments for your chance to win a Unity Grab Bag! 


Thanks so much for visiting me this week!!
Have a great day!

Growing in Unity Day 4 -- Love & Hugs

Hello!  Today is Day 4 of my Growing in Unity week with Unity Stamp Company.  Today I used two sets called Koala-ty Friend and Say It with Love. I didn't want a puny sentiment this go around but I do love to use them.  


I stamped and colored in these cute hugging koalas and decided to fussy cut it out.  Then I used the Say It with Love sentiment and hearts as well.  I did stamp out the hearts and cut them out as well for my 'embellishments'. Then I added Clear Wink of Stella to the hearts and a bit to the ears of the koalas.

This was an easy card to put together once I figured out how I wanted it to look.

Growing in Unity Day 3 -- Wish Upon a Star

Hello!  Today is Day 3 of my Growing in Unity Week for Unity Stamp Company. Today I also used a stamp set that I have not before, The Owl & The Moon. I love owls and I own a lot of Unity Owls so it was clear when this released that I had to own it LOL!


I stamped the image and sentiment on my card stock and colored it in with Copic Markers.  I added some white gel pen accents to the moon and then some Clear Wink of Stellar around it and in the star hanging from the moon.  

Then I found some star paper for the background and used foam tape to put the top layer on the card.  To finish it off, I added some gold star stick on gems.   

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance at a 25 piece grab bag of Unity Stamps!  And check back the rest of the week for more chances.

Growing in Unity Day 2 -- Hi There

Hello! I'm here with Day 2 of my Growing in Unity Week for Unity Stamp Company.  Today I am using a stamp set that I hadn't used before this.  It's called Salutation Toad.  I just thought he was to cute and I love the sentiments in it.


This is a perfect card to send to someone since we all are not seeing too many people these days.  I stamped my cutie frog and the sentiment.  Then I used my Copic markers to color him in.  I then added some white gel pen accents and Glossy Accents to the eyes. 

I picked out some green and gray paper to go with my coloring and then added some of both colored enameled dots to finish it off.

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance at a 25 piece grab bag of Unity Stamps!  And check back the rest of the week for more chances.

Growing In Unity Day 1 -- Wish

Hello everyone!  I am the Growing in Unity Girl for this week for Unity Stamp Company.  This is such a fun week where I will post a project each day this week using my Unity Stamps.  If you leave comments, you will be entered be 1 of 2 people chosen for a grab bag of 25 Unity Stamps!

I've used this week to mostly use Unity Stamps that I haven't used yet.  I have a pretty good collection LOL! Today's stamp I think I did use once but I just love it so used it again. This card was made using Hang in There Lady


I love polka dots so found some red polka dot paper to use as my background.  I then stamped my lady bug and sentiment on the white layer and used an edge die from MFT on the side. This was easy to color and I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the wishing flower.  To finish it off, I grabbed some red heart enamel shapes to the card to match the hearts in the stamp by the ladybug.

I hope you keep checking back this whole week as I have more fun cards lined up to show you!



Have a great day!

I found these cute lemonade images in Cricut Design Space.  The lemonade because of the Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine.  I glued that around the border of the card layer and added a bow. 

I glued the images on the card base and added some clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of sparkle.  To finish it off, I added some enamel dots.

Just a quick and simple card!

Rainbow Card

Hello!  I made this card for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 501.  As I was finishing it up, I realized it also fit the MFT Summer School: Symmetry homework. I think I used symmetry on my cards more than I realized.

MFT Products used:

And I'm not sure why that just double spaced.  I really do not like new blogger.

Have a great day!
