A lot of layers over each other.

DT Tuesday with Camille

Happy Tuesday to everyone!

Today I’m sharing a chipboard tag I made this past Sunday using Angie’s NEW Shine Bright Girls set. The set was just released last week and I was so happy to play with it.

As you can see from the photo above, I used the girl on the left only. Here’s a peek at the entire glorious set.

Clicking on the set above will take you to the product’s page at Unity Stamp Company.
Now It’s time to share some cards I ADORE from the Unity {show & tell} Facebook Group.

The above card was created by Shannon Pavlovic Edwards. I just adore the creative vibe of this card. Thanks so much, Shannon, for using your creative energy to brighten someone’s day.

The card below was created by Susan Slywchuk. The colors Susan used are absolutely gorgeous and I just love the artistic feel to the card's background. Thanks for sharing with us!

KOTM Monday ~ Never Be Afraid ~ Gold Butterflies

Hi, it's Gaylynn here with a Kit of the Month Monday project.

Savor the beauty of life and believe that each moment in time is a new beginning.

For this card, I used the solid and the outline butterfly images from the kit.
I stamped each onto watercolor paper, but only colored the outline butterflies in gold watercolor.

I made a quick tip video tutorial for these layered butterflies.

Here is the August 2017 KOTM called Never Be Afraid.

And here is a closer look at my card.

You can't go wrong with the KOTM membership.  It is like getting a present in your mailbox every month.  For more information, click Kit of the Month then scroll down for the details.

Have a lovely day.

DT Tuesday with Angeline

Hey scrappy friends.
Angeline here to share with you a quick card I made using the Patience and Hugs by Susan Weckesser. This set is just adorable and a must-have!

Unity Stamp Company: I need a HUG #unitystampco #scrappyscrappy #susanweckesser #stamp #stamping #card #cardmaking #timholtz #distressoxide #nuvodrop #tonicstudios #dttuesday

I first smooshed some Tim Holtz distress oxide inks [Broken China / Cracked Pistachio / Wilted Violet] onto my craft mat then spritzed some water onto it. Then I just pressed my card onto the inks and wa-laaaa! :) It's just like magic!

Once it is dried, I stamped the cute bunnies all around and that cute sentiment to my card. I also added some Nuvo drop [Bubblegum Blush] and I'm done!

Unity Stamp Company: I need a HUG #unitystampco #scrappyscrappy #susanweckesser #stamp #stamping #card #cardmaking #timholtz #distressoxide #nuvodrop #tonicstudios #dttuesday

This technique would be great if you're in a rush and just need a quick one layer card without much fuss but still looks cute! :)

So I have also spotted some really cute cards in the Unity {show & tell} FB Group. Do join us there to share us your scrappy cards and be part of this fun group!

Here's a card made by Shannon Pavlovic Edwards. 
So so pretty!

Next card is made by Corinne L Young-Derby.
I just love the texture on those poppies! 

And this card is made by Amanda Garrett.
The cameras stamped in the background is just perfect for the beautiful girl!

And finally, this card by Christina McCoy Varnum.
Just love how beautiful this card is!

So, don't stop sharing your beautiful scrappy projects with us and we may feature you here next week :)

Till then, remember that ....

KOTM Monday!

Happy Monday!

Echo here starting off the week with 2 cards I made using August's Kit of the Month-Never be afraid. It is an awesome kit this month.

To learn more about this membership, click here
This is one of four amazing memberships that Unity offers. 

My first card I used the spotlight technique to add a bit of interest to the card. I first stamped the image on white card stock and then die cut where I wanted the spotlight to be. I colored just the die cut area with Copic markers and then added the black mat. Lined it up with the image and added sentiment on a die cut banner. I stamped sentiment in VersaMark ink and embossed in white. 

For this next card, I just did some simple stamping using the same stamp in different colors. 
This is my favorite sentiment in this months kit. 

Hope you all have a wonderful week and get some craft time in! 

See what I am crafting about on:

Uniquely Unity 8-13-2017

Good morning and happy Sunday to all of you.  It's Kris here to share another round of Uniquely Unity inspiration.  This month's kit is titled Everyday Wonderful Owls from the artist Tierra Jackson (and boy does she deliver a stunner with this adorable image!).
Here's the card I made.  It is colored with distress ink and markers.  The background panel is a Memory Box die.  I thought a starry background would be perfect for the owls sitting on the moon.  It was easy to create that mottled sky by simply blending distress ink over the panel and then spritzing with water.  I also added a bit of glossy accents (from Ranger) on each heart.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Inspiration Wednesday Flower on Vellum & Tutorial

Hello, it's Gaylynn here sharing an Inspiration Wednesday post today.

Sentiment:  Hello it's ME.

One of my favorite techniques is coloring on vellum.  I love the soft look of it.
I used heat embossing, die-cuts and Copic markers.
For a soft look, color the opposite side of the vellum image.
I used two lovely Unity stamp kits, Hello Beautiful and Hello It's Me, by Jolande and Marleen for my card and envelope.

For inspiration, I found this mood board on Pinterest.

I made a quick tip video tutorial for my vellum flower card.

Here is a closer look:

I hope this inspires you.  Here is a little quote for you.  Have a lovely day.

Welcome to DT Tuesday!

Hello Peeps!!
I love this quote for a couple of reasons.  
Something good does happen every day!
It's the little things that are so good in my opinion!
If you make a Traveler's Notebook you can remember those little things forever!

My sister and brother-in-law gave me my cover and this past weekend my sister and I got busy!  OH MY GOSH this is so much fun!!
 A good blogger would have removed this notebook to get a perfect picture.
disclaimer: I do not qualify as a good blogger.  Please excuse my fingers LOL
I absolutely adore slapping stuff on all the covers, inside and out!  
This page uses Shiny Little Soul
We even made laminated dashboards!!
Morgan Girl is MY Girl, did you know that? She is moving away for college this year and I am dying a little inside. Luckily she will be less than 2 hours away!  Phew!
I tried stamping in my notebooks and often times my page is bumpy on the other side so it isn't working all that well.  I decided to spruce up some old Project Life cards because I love to use washi in my notebooks.  I can write on both sides and just tape one side and flip it over!  Then I get stamps and washi and triple the writing space!
Now, Michelle has stamped like a champ in her planner!  I LOVE IT!!!
I hope I can get my notebooks to look half this good!  Thank you so much for stopping by today!
We sure appreciate it!
