{4.25.2013} Unity Thursday + Cameo file FREEBIE

Whoop Whoop!

I just LOVE when I get to hop on Thursday’s with Unity.
It is my favorite day for sure.
All the action starts on the Unity blog.

I am using the current KIT OF THE MONTH today.

Eeek, fun right?  The stamps are some I designed as well.  I loved the idea of geocaching for a card theme.  Lots of friends I know have husbands or kids that like to go on these little adventures.  It is quite a trendy theme right now as well.  The Here and There paper pad had the PERFECT matching paper.

I have a little freebie for you as well.
I created that card base for the Cameo and I’m going to share it with you.
It is available in both .studio and svg files.
Just click on the picture and download the file you need.

{4.23.2013} de-LIGHT-ful

Hello Tuesday.

I shared this card on the Unity blog yesterday.

These are some of my stamp designs.  I love a good pun, thus we have a bit of a punny stamp.  The other sentiment that goes with the light bulb is OH GOSH i just remembered.  Ha.  I’ve used that one too.

I ordered some Neenah paper in a linen texture.  I LOVE it.  The Deco Hound has a fun worn look when stamped on the texture.  It also has a very clean and classic feel that will be good for pretty clean and simple cards.  I’m excited about it can you tell?  Lol.  The circles were cut with my Cameo from various scraps of cardstock.

Thursday is my hop day with Unity.
I have a special card planned and will have a freebie to go with it.
I *might* have a free Cameo file involved.
Just saying.

Have a fabulous day my friends.

CAS(E) this SKETCH!

CTS is a challenge blog to inspire you to create a clean and simple card based on a fun sketch.
Here is my inspiration for this week’s challenge and brand new sketch.

I love this inkwell stamp.  Isn’t fun?  I decided to turn the tag in the sketch into a label instead.  I stamped the inkwell onto the label itself and then the feather top on a scrap piece.  I trimmed out that feather and popped it up with some foam adhesive.  Just to give it a little something fun.

I’ve had this Smooch Spritz stuff for ages.  Never really knew what to do with it.  I’m so not savvy with the whole spritz crazy.  I can’t seem to make it look pretty.  So, I did it my way.  I sprayed a little onto some paper to make a puddle, then used the end of my paint brush (the handle end) to create some ink drops.  I went a little crazy and wish I could take it back.  Well, I can’t so I have to go with it.  Lol.  Note to self – practice beforehand on some scraps.

Make sure you hop over to the CTS blog for challenge rules and a blog full of inspiration.
The design team girls are so talented and have the most fabulous cards to share.

{11.19.2012} so into you…

Love this Kit of the Month from
Unity Stamp Company.

I finally inked up those amazing feathers included in this month’s kit.

I needed some thinking of you/sympathy cards for the stash
and decided to throw a birthday card in the mix as well.

Feather’s are such a big trend right now.
As usual, Unity delivers with the perfect stamps for this trend.
Don’t they make for a stunning set of clean and simple cards?

Thanks for stopping by… hope you have a fabulous week.

labeled {from ours to yours}

I love holly… and it is hard to find a darn good holly stamp!  Unity solved that one!  Just look at that uber sweet holly!!!  I love the little bit of flourish included.  I popped up the leaves after I colored them and the berries with copic markers.

LOTS of NEWS today.
