Another Banner Day

Happy Tuesday!
Shellye here to share a couple of projects created
by myself and Thienly Azim for the 
Unity-Susan Weckesser-Helmar Blog Hop

I have to say that Jen Roach's adorable banner/tree card (from yesterday)
is a hard act to follow!  If you missed her card, be sure to scroll on down a bit :)

I created a 12x12 layout using the Susan Weckesser
patterned paper and banner stamps
{See all of Susan Weckesser Stamps right here}

I cut out a few elements from one of the patterned papers

I turned this lined banner stamp into a journaling spot!

And a project wouldn't be a project with adding loads of dimension...
what better way than with Helmar's Zapdots!

Thienly has crafted a stunning canvas collage with us today...
isn't this absolutely gorgeous!?!
 As you can see, there are so many ways to use these grand stamps
on almost any project...from home decor to layouts to cards!

Now, don't forget to check out the
HELMAR BLOG & Facebook Page...
lots of great giveaways!
AND, don't forget to leave a comment right here  
(and each day of the hop)
for your chance to win your very own 
Susan Weckessar/Unity Stamp Kit

Thanks for coming by...have a wonderful Tuesday!

KOTM Monday with Carisa

Happy Monday, Unity Fans!!
It's Carisa here popping in from UnityTV filling in for our sweet Jessica as she takes a couple months off to pursue her photography! We're all SUPER excited for her as we cheer her on and I was thrilled when she asked if I would fill in for her in the meantime.
Today I am sharing a card I made using the March KOTM. I love the KOTM as you get a FULL 8.5 x 11 sheet of red rubber filled with beautiful images and sentiments. When I saw this sentiment and rose in the March Kit, I immediately thought of the SheArt papers by Pink Paislee...I think they match beautifully. I paper pieced the rose with some of my favorite October Afternoon papers. This card came together so fast and I LOVE it!

Now here is the current July KOTM. I love how there is all sorts of quirky and fun images in this set - perfect for so many different occasions.

To find out how YOU can become part of the Unity KOTM and get your very own bit of happy mail each month, please click HERE. There are even more perks to joining the KOTM than just getting awesome stamps each and every month so be sure to check it out!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS week!

Stretching your Susan Weckesser banner stamps

Hello Unity friends!  Jen Roach here and we're continuing today with the Helmar/Susan Weckesser blog hop.  You can find more details at the bottom of the post on how you can WIN some great prizes :)

For my card I used the amazing new Susan Weckesser banner set and turned them into little Christmas trees.  Pretty neat huh?---I always like figuring out how I get more use out of my stamps!  I stamped the images onto some patterned papers, cut them out and added some Stickles for bling.  I cut a few strips of brown scrap paper for the trunks.

I used an embossing folder to add more texture to my background and kept with the whimsical look by adding a button star and some baker's twine.

Happy Saturday it's Stephanie here to share some more fabulous projects using

For my card here I used some amazing pattern paper by Susan and I framed the sentiment with a stamp from the Insta Cute kit.
