Growing in Unity Wednesday

Sorry to be coming late this week but it's time  to introduce another Growing in Unity gal!  This week the fabulous Becky Litz is up sharing her wonderful Unity creations!

Meet Becky:

Here is a little something about Becky:

"Hi Unity Peeps!!! Becky here from Scrap Circus (www.scrapcircus.blogspot.com) I am so thrilled to be your Growing in Unity gal this week! I have been obsessed with Unity stamps for many years now, in fact they are almost all I ever use. I love the eclectic mix of styles and the amazing images and sentiments. My family and I live in Cranbrook BC Canada. My hunny and I have two kiddos; our daughter Olivia is 10 and our son Sullivan is 2. I’ve been crafty all my life but my real obsession with all things paper crafting began in 2002. I primarily scrapbook and make cards, but I have also been known to make the odd mini album, home d├ęcor item or mixed media piece. I had a great time creating my cards to share with you this week, and I hope you’ll stop by daily for some fun inspiration! "
Now check out this great card Becky made this week:

Be sure to stop on by Becky's blog each day this week for loads of Unity inspiration.  Also don't forget leave her some love as she will pick one random person at the end of the week.  That lucky person will receive 2 itty bitty's of their choice!  

That's all for this week!

Inspiration Wednesday : LOVE , HOPE, FAITH

Hello, Angie Blom here with my Inspiration Wednesday project.
Have you seen the Inspired Unity INSPIRED colour Challenge.
 I just love the colour combinations this month.
Greens, Black, White and Grey.
you can find the Unity Inspired Challenges here.
I was loving the layers of colours and wanted to make an ART canvas using one of the
stamps in my July 2012 SMAK kit  and some from the newest Sentiment kit... All About HOPE
This kit was created special to offer hope and support to those fighting health issues. Specifically close to the heart of our artist Tifany is to raise the awareness of Lupus and the Lupus Foundation of America. Please visit this site: http://www.lupus.org/.
Created by Tifany DeGough.
here is what I made..
I also loved the entire layout of the design in the photo.. can you tell!!
So I started with a variety of papers from the Echo Park collection " for the Record"
they with a paper doily to start my first layer..
I then layered the different papers to achieve my over all look.
then  I stamped in a dark green ink the half circle image 
from the past SMAK kit - cre-ate
cre-ate {SMAK JULY 2012} 3
then adding some black bling and some glitter to it. finishing it up with a
flower from Petaloo and a decorative brad.

Then using the work banners LOVE, HOPE, FAITH .. it just finished the canvas piece off
nicely.. this will hang on my ART wall of my house.. I just love using these stamps to make
my own HOME decor items. I hope you give this a try.. and take the UNITY inspired Challenge.

 You can link up your creations for the challenge starting now !
we offer 3 different challenges so go check it out.

Have a wonderfully INSPIRING day .

Design Team Tuesday

Hello Unity friends. It's another Design Team Tuesday with the Unity DT crew and today I'm sharing some fantastic projects I spotted around Unity's FWF contest and at Splitcoast. One of my favorite techniques is fussy cutting and paper piecing my stamped images for cards and layouts. I surfed a bit looking for some inspiration using these techniques and found some fun cards that caught my eye.

First up is Karen who created with is for last week's Friends with Flair

Through Rain or Shine

Next I stopped over to the Unity Splitcoast Stampers gallery and spied this adorable card from Jen who paper pieced these into a super cute creation!

Splendid Things

Not sure if you noticed my yellow trend going on here. I must admit that I am really into Navy Blue and Yellow color combos right now. So naturally after spotting these fabulous projects, I was inspired to create this card with the Map within the heart image from the February SMAK kit

Happily ever After

My favorite 6x6 stack right now is this one by My Mind's Eye called Moments. I stamped my image onto a light pattern and embossed the image. Then I cut it out and used a red Copic to enhance the heart image and added a heart Twinkle Goosebump from Queen and Co.

I hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration as much as I did. 

Now go gather up your favorite Unity stamps and get inky today!
 Need some more inspiration? Have you checked out the Unity {Be Inspired} Challenge?
 You can find out how to create with us here.

Have a Creative Day!
