{3.23.2012} final take two day and friends with flair

Take Two Week: Day FIVE

And so the party must come to an end!  This is our last day for this year’s Take Two week.  Again, it was super amazing and I have to thank my friend, Emily, for sharing this week with me.  I know she had a ton going on and yet still found time for Take Two.  Thanks girlie.

And a great big thank you to Angela at Unity Stamp Company!  No one is as generous as Unity and Angela.  She is the heart and soul of this company and you feel it every time you purchase or ink up a stamp.  Love ya girl.

Ready to see what kit we are using today?

  Emily and I are focusing on the clocks and dress bust to use for our cards today.  The clocks have not seen ink in my set yet, so I was excited to start with them first.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them.  They come linked together, but I wanted to use them separately.  I cut them apart and randomly inked them on a circle of white cardstock.  The saying is just perfect… gotta love Unity for their sentiments.  The arrow is hand drawn.  I really love arrows.  This one is to mimics the clock theme.

Up next, we are using the bust image from the kit.  I felt like it needed a party dress… sort of a hodgepodge party style.  Some fun papers and lots of patterned paper layering going on here.  The saying is from THIS kit.  That little bit of lace is from a strip of clothing I cut off to save the buttons from a pair of pajamas.  That wasn’t its intended use, but the party dress needed a little trim.  I was thinking the dress would look pretty cool with a jean jacket of sorts, so I threw some denim patterned paper in the back.

Thank you all again for joining us this week.  It has been super fun and you ALL made it extra special!!!

Please pop on over to Emily’s blog for her final cards too!  I’m excited to see her amazing cards.

Don’t forget, we are giving away ONE of each stamp set we used this week (that is 5 sets) and 2 of my watermarks (I’ve also added a few new designs if you haven’t checked them out recently).  You have until Saturday, March 24 at 11:59pm EST to leave a comment on each post this week and we’ll announce the winners on Monday, March 26, 2012.

It is also Friends with Flair on the Unity blog.  So head back over there to see all the fabby entries.

Take Two Week: Day FOUR

Oh boy.  After going thru MANY stamps sets to find ones we shared, Emily and I finally finished our list with this one.  We’ve both had it for quite some time and neither have inked it up.  Crazy right!  It was a perfect addition to our week.

What I love about Emily is her ability to use stamps for uses other than they are intended.  She immediately said, “we could used A Simple Christmas for Christmas or non-Christmas occasions”.  Love that!  So, I worked really hard to think outside the box and decided to make a birthday card.

My birthday to be exact!  Ha.  Next week is my birthday and who says I can’t make my own card.  Maybe I’ll even mail it to myself.  That would fit in with my goal to mail out more cards this year.  🙂  I used all my favorite colors and of course it had to be on kraft.  The calendar included in the kit is super adorable, but I had to cover up the December with some sticker letters for March.  The ‘best day ever’ saying came from THIS kit.  One of my go to kits for birthdays.

Only one more day to go.  Thank you all for visiting every day.
Tomorrow is a doozie as we say so long to Take Two Week.

Pop on over to Emily’s blog to see what she has with this set today!

Take Two Week: Day THREE

shine, shine, shine

Wow, this is going by so FAST!  I can’t believe we are half done.

Thank you all for your amazing comments.  They mean the world to me and I am sure Emily feels the same.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Today, we are both using the shine, shine, shine set from {ippity} by Unity.

I have used this set TONS and STILL love it.  I just love that hanging light bulb.  I paired it with some new alpha letters I recently ordered.  LOVE them too.  I wanted a crazy haphazard placement of letters to go with the sentiment.  I printed the ‘I just remembered’ on the cardstock with my printer before I got started on the card.  A little hybrid action going on.  🙂

I have a feeling Emily has one seriously clever card up today.
I’m rushing over right now to see, want to come along???

Take Two Week: Day TWO

Oh my goodness… Emily ROCKED that Crappy Day set!!! She is one smart cookie.  I just adore her creative mind.
Thank you all for joining us again for this year’s event. Good to see some old and new friends.

Not only are Emily and I using Unity stamps but also {ippity} by Unity!  I adore these stamps and the chicks who sell them.  You can buy {ippity} on the WEBSITE along with Unity.  Easy peasy, but these chicks promote and do their own home sales too.  So when you purchase {ippity} you support THESE women.

Did you know before I moved over to the Unity design team, I was lucky to get my start on the {ippity} team?  I was over the moon excited when I got the email to ask me to join the team.  Eeeek, it still makes me giddy.

LOVE this penguin’s attitude!

Hee hee.  He is super fun to color and paper piece too.

{3.19.2012} let the fun begin…

Take Two Week: Day ONE

One year ago, Emily Leiphart and I decided to do a week of ALL Unity Stamp Company stamps TWO different ways.  I believe we were talking about how we both admired the style of the other and somehow Take Two Week was born.  We had so much fun, we decided to bring the party back!

Welcome to TAKE TWO week!!!  A week full of card inspiration and prizes too.

The sweet and fabulous Angela from Unity Stamp Company has generously donated the stamp prizes for this week.  We have one of each set to give away.  So make sure you leave a comment on both mine and Emily’s blog for a chance to win.

Also, we’ll be giving away 2 of my watermarks this week as well.

Today, we are featuring this super CUTE and FUNNY stamp set.

Heehee, makes you giggle, right?
Often, I have a card come to mind IMMEDIATELY and KNOW I just have to order the stamp.  Such is the case with this itty bitty.  I wanted to recreate the look of an empty toilet paper roll and set about getting it done.  I tried a few different techniques and ended up with tape adhesive and Kleenex.  Hope it isn’t too ‘realistic.’  ha.  Then, I paper pieced the roll together and popped it up on the card.

So here’s a recap of TAKE TWO deets:

  • A new card from Emily and Lisa everyday Monday 19th – Friday 23rd.
  • comment on EACH blog for your chance to win one of the 5 stamp sets or a watermark
  • comments are no longer eligible after Saturday, March 24 at 11:59pm EST.
  • We’ll announce the winners on Monday, March 26, 2012.
