Day 1 of my GIU Girl week for Unity Stamp Co.


Good morning Friends,

Today starts my week of Unity stamp inspired creations. I hope you will visit me each day this week. Because at the end One Random.org selected person will receive two itty bitty stamp sets from Unity stamp company!! If you want to start looking at the itty bitty stamps click here!

Unity has a “ning” web site it’s full of stamping fun here is the link: http://www.myunityplace.com/ and if you do go and sign up, look me up and “Friend” me!!

Here is my Day 1: card

GIU-girl-day-1I have used the stamp set “Kokeshi Cuties,” created by Samantha Walker for Unity. I have colored her in with Copics. I added a SU tiny pearl in the flower in her hair.

Behind my girl stamp is 2 different size Sizzix dies. Then the strip of Bravo Burgundy was dry embossed using a Cuddle Bug embossing folder from an “Asian” set. I then use a metallic gold Gelato and rubbed it onto the strip, over the raised flowers.

Behind the strip I stamped the stamp called “Dots for Sure.”  I used the same metallic gold Gelato and rubbed it onto the stamp, then with my mister I sprayed water on it and stamped it. The back ground DSP is from DCWV “The Far East Stack.”

Dots for Sure - IPS 129This is the “Dots for Sure” stamp.

Kokeshi CutiesThis is the “Kokeshi Cuties” stamp.

Beauty All Around! Chick Challenges #34, Show your unity Stripes!


Hello there, I made a card using some {ippity} stamps today. I used “What Matters Most” and “Be Brave …Branch out”

The flowers are from the “What Matters Most” set. First I stamped them in Memento brown, wiped off the brown from the leaves and steam. Then I used my SU marker in Glorious Green to color it in on the stamp. Stamped it on white CS, and colored in the flowers with Copics.

This is the “What Matters Most” set. Look at all the wonderful stamps just this one set comes with!! (To get yours follow the link.)

For my sentiment “Beauty All Around” I used the stamp set “Be Brave …Branch out” (To get yours follow the link.)

The stamp is actually one stamp that says “BEAUTY ALL AROUND it’s time to fly” however, I just colored in the “BEAUTY ALL AROUND” part with my SU marker in Tangerine Tango.

I used a Fiskars boarder punch for my grass. The stripped BG paper from stash. The butterfly is a die cut from SU. I got the cute glittery Frog from Micheal’s.

I followed this sketch from Chick Challenges: Challenge # 34


I used striped paper to enter in the unity challenge blog: Challenge “Show your Stripes”
