Day 2 of my “GIU Girl” week for Unity Stamp Co.

Standard

Good morning Friends,

Today is day 2 of my GIU week. ( GIU= Growing In Unity.) Stay with me this week and you will have a chance at (2) two itty bitty stamp sets of your choice from Unity stamp co. Click Here to shop the itty bitty stamp sets.

Day 2:

GIU-girl-day-2

My main stamp used is “Bloom & Simplify” the artist is Angie Blom for Unity stamp Co. I like Angie Bloom’s style! She has more stamps set for Unity click here to check them all out! I have colored my image with Prismacolor pencils. I stamped the sentiment and image with Chocolate Chip ink, I sponged the edges with Baked Brown Sugar ink from SU.

I created a collage sheet using the music stamp from “Music of my Heart,” 2 stamps from the set “Sing a New Song,” and the strip of words from the “Bloom & Simplify” set. I know I did all that and you can’t really see it, but my strip turned out pretty cool looking I think. The other strip of paper behind the main image is the back side of the polka dotted DSP. I added a clear button and 3 butterfly brads from SU. The burlap is from JoAnn’s Fabrics.

Good morning friends and new friends,

We are half way through with the GIU posts. If you are just now visiting me make sure you comment on Day one and Day two for your chance at some Unity rubber stamps!

Also I have added in a bonus for you all, if you are a follower of my blog you get to go into the drawing an extra time. If you sign up to be a follower, let me know in your comment and you too will get an extra chance at the 2 itty bitty stamps sets from Unity.

Today I have an altered canvas:

Canvas-Angie-GirlTo create the back ground I tore patterned paper (DSP) then added white Gesso. I colored Angie Girl w/ Copics.

I have used the following stamp sets:

Delightful Little Things - PIK 122“Delightful Little Things” above (Follow the link to get yours!)

Angie Girl Dream with your Heart - IPK 165“Angie Girl: Dream with your Heart” above (Follow the link to get yours!)

The picture of me is when I just got to see Tim Holtz, and I am holding a bag that he signed for me. Tim Holtz was in Orland a couple of months ago, it was pretty cool meeting him, and watching him do demos!

Zoey-and-LeiaLeia, just loves to hug on my 91lb German Shepard Zoey. Good thing Zoey tolerates her, (not that she is ever left along w/ Zoey) I do think Zoey likes the attention though.

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

Standard

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”

Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment Thank you! If you would like to follow my blog, the Follow button is under the 2nd picture of my grand-daughter. It is a follow by email button.
