Growing in Unity Day 3 – Magical Moments

Hello and welcome back. Are you still making your holiday cards? I am! Every year I swear I’m going to get ahead, but I never do. I don’t like to make multiples of the same card; I like to make a card specifically for the recipient. I made this card for my son.

This card features the Layers of Life set called Search for Those Moments. It is such a pretty set. I started by placing the stamp in my MISTI and coloring directly on the stamp with Tombow marker #158. I love how the trees look! Next, I inked up the background with GinaK Amalgam ink. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is stamped in GinaK Fresh Asparagas ink. To complete the look, I spattered white, acrylic ink to make it appear snowy. Lastly, I die cut the panel with a deckle edge die and adhered it to a dark grey A2 card base.

Please be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win one of two $20 gift cards to Unity Stamp Company.

Tomorrows card was inspired by a coworkers sweatshirt. Are you intrigued? lol

A Rose for Mom

It’s time to start thinking about how we can honor the Mother’s in our lives. My mom loved roses and she would have loved the projects I made with this new stamp set from Divinity Designs.

I was fortunate to be a guest designer for Divinity Designs this month. I really fell in love with this new set – My World Stamp/Die Duo. It has the perfect sentiments for creating Mother’s Day projects.

Here are a couple of cards I created using this new stamp and die set.

I also thought it would be fun to create a Mother’s Day themed Timeless Tote.

I decided to use glitter paste and the new Rose Mixed Media Stencil on the front pocket to add some sparkle and texture.

This pocket is the perfect size to hold a gift card! Inside the tote I placed a small pack of tissues and a small hand sanitizer. We can’t have too much of that these days!

Happy Mother’s Day!
