SOTW Reminder 12-02-2016

YAY!  Not only is it Friday, but it's my birthday!  I love having this post because I think the Unity SOTW is one of the best bargains around.  Subscribing to this one gets you an awesome itty bitty set (usually 2 stamps, one image and one sentiment) delivered right to your mail box each and every single week!
This weeks stamp #MYHEART is just gorgeous...don't you think???
Here's my card.  I used the image multiple times lining it up vertically and then anchored the sentiment at the bottom.  I had this kind of rainbow image in my mind and used watercolors to achieve this look.  The layout is simple (as mine usually are!).  I matted the watercolor panel with black cardstock and adhered it to a single piece of patterned paper.

Here's the full image.


Just click HERE to get all of the details on this weekly subscription.
I'm off to do some (treating myself) birthday shopping.  Have a fabulous weekend.

Inspiration Wednesday with Camille

We’re still pleasantly full from Thanksgiving and leftovers in our house. I’m looking forward to creating with all the goodies Unity has released in November. WOW-wee what a haul of goodness. Seriously! I’m hoping you all got to do some Unity shopping from Brown Thursday through Cyber Monday. That’s the basis of my post today. USING those stamps!

I put together this seasonal-inspired chipboard tag using one of the NEW sets released this past Monday.

Isn’t she adorable? I LOVE her so much! I thought putting her right smack in the middle of a die cut mason jar with a snowy scene would set her off perfectly. Of course, she would make anything you put her on cute.

I used the following set, Hello Winter, created by Susan K. Weckesser. This is a great kit to use this wintery/holiday season.

Which sets did you purchase during the sales? Which sets are you going to create with FIRST? Which sets do you think you’re going to use most? Do TELL and SHARE! I can’t wait to see what you all do with the Unity goodies from your shopping hauls.

Growing in Unity

Welcome to Growing in Unity!  This week Tami is up sharing her wonderful creations.

Meet Tami:

Here is a little something about Tami:
"I am Tami.  I live in Oklahoma and have been a unity fan for just about a year now.  I have been stamping for just about 18 years.  I started stamping when my 18 year old was a baby.  I found it to be me time and I really loved it when I created a card that was just perfect.  I have real life pen pals yes by mail and most of my cards go to them.  I always make my own Christmas cards.  One is never alike.  I almost never duplicate a design I like making lots of different ones.  

In September of this year our house burnt.  I was thankful to be able to save most of my stamping supplies.  We were in a hotel for a month after the fire and my little bags of rubber stamps traveled with me in the car.  I was so happy to get into our temporary home and be able to stamp again and create.  We will be going back to our real home in February.  YEAH

Thanks for looking at my unity creations this week and I hope that they inspire you."

Check out this fun card Tami made:

DT Tuesday with Mandi

Good Morning Friends!

Welcome to another DT Tuesday with Mandi

It's been really cold and frosty here in Scotland these last few days. 

Which just makes me want drink lots of hot tea and cozy up by the fire.

This is where I got my idea for today's post. 

I coloured some tags with winter themed Angie girls all bundled up holding hot drinks. 

I used my peerless watercolors kept the colours quite festive. 

The first girl is called Dream Of Being  the sentiment is from Rebuild Herself.

The second girl is one of my all time favourites called Hello Love.

Finally the third girl is from the Beauty Comes from Being Yourself KOM

I really love the look of them all together. 

I could easily have kept going as there are so many lovely winter themed girls.


 Pick of the Week   

Now on to some of my favourite cards I have seen on the Unity Show & Tell page.

I love this Christmas tree by Stephanie Seelye. The ornaments look so real!

 I also saw this lovely card by Michael Trent. I love all of the bright cheery colours he used.

Last but not least I saw this lovely card by Angie Baehre VerDuin.

I love the way she coloured these wee owls

These are all amazing cards. I love seeing the way everyone uses Unity stamps. 

I hope you got some inspiration from these wonderful people. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

 I will leave you with this I thought it was pretty funny :)

Stamp of the Week ~ #MYHEART

Hello.  Gaylynn here.  Today, I get to reveal the brand new Unity stamp of the week.
It is #MYHEART and it is perfect for the coloring craze these days and for upcoming love occasions.

Sentiment:  #MYHEART

I really like that the sentiment is a hashtag.
I stacked two of these beautiful hearts to give the gift tag a pitter patter kind of dimension.

With this project, I got to use my fine liner colored pens.  You can really get into tiny spaces and details with them.

I made a quick tip video with this.
My YouTube is GaylynnNeatThingsBTQ it will be on the Unity YouTube as well.


You can't go wrong with this amazing membership,.
A brand new stamp kit arrives at your door every single week, for only $5.79 which includes shipping.
