{10.12.2012} Unity + Authentique = a Beautious combo

Day 2 of the Unity and Authentique Hop

I have to admit it… the Authentique papers and co-branded Unity stamps put a spell on me!
I LOVE it when there are matching stamps to a paper line and even more when UNITY makes those stamps. No one does it better than Unity. Great rubber that always stamps perfectly from day one. And then to have amazing paper by Authentique to match… makes this girl SO happy!

We are on day 2 of the Authentique and Unity blog hop.  Make sure you leave a comment on each blog for your chance at prizes from both companies.  Up first, I have a card using the Enchanted line of paper and stamps to share.

Super fun and yet a little spooky, right?  Authentique paper has the most amazing texture and heft.  It creates a feeling many paper companies do not have and add a little something extra to the card.  I stamped those HUGE tickets along the side of the card and then the saying to be popped up on the ‘potion bottle’.  I cut the bottle out with my Cameo and more of the luscious paper.

And I also have a fun card from the Lively collection of paper and stamps.

I just adore this happy collection.  That wagon reminds me of the little red one I used to have as a wee one.  I remember it got lots of use pulling me around and probably my animals as well.  Now it still gets a little bit of use, but mainly when a family member moves.  But for this card, it just had to be green!  A happy, fabulous lime green!  Isn’t it sweet?  The sweet pink and green papers in the lively collection are just delightful.  I love the ledger pattern on the banner.  I’ll have to make something with that again!  I stamped the wagon twice and paper pieced it together.  I then used a copic to add a little shading.  Lastly, I layered some fun stickers included in the paper pack.  Cute, right?

We can’t have a fabulous hop without a FABULOUS sale!!!

There are still LOTS of amazing projects to see.
Sweet Natalie is up next!!!!
