Growing In Unity


GIU Day #3: Hello and thank you for joining me today for day three of my Growing In Unity Girl week! If you'd like to see yesterday's post, please go HERE. For todays post, I thought I would get a jump start on holiday cards and showcase a great set with so many great images! This set is perfect for making a card for a teacher (the apple and books), to send a happy card to a friend (the mailbox, pie and fish), or to make a holiday/special occasions card (wedding cake, houses, & poinsettia).

 

The Worn Music stamp is really great if you like the "distressed" look or want to add a great background to a card or scrapbook page. 


To make the square for the music, I used some masking tape to do a masking technique. It was kind of hard to make the twine strait - so I hope it looks ok. I also added some red glitter pen the some of the poinsettia stamp so make it stand out a bit. (It's such a nice stamp! I can't wait to use it more on some cards) Thank you so much for stopping by, and please visit my blog all week as I show off some more wonderful Unity stamp sets, cards, (and if you leave a comment), a chance to win 2 Itty Bittys!!

Stamps: Unity Stamp Co. ('Worn Music' & 'Hodge Podge of Happiness')
Sentiment Stamp: Unity Stamp Co ('Picture Perfect' KOTM)
Ink: Brilliance (Graphite Black), ColorBox (Warm Red)
Twine: The Twinery (Maraschino)
Glitter pen: Gelly Roll

  2. Like the faux stitching! IMO having the twine look more natural & not completely square adds lots of charm, too. TFS.
