Sketch challenge w/ Unity and Sparkle N Sprinkle!

Standard

Good evening Friends,

I have another card that I made today to share with you, it’s a Birthday card, I am adding this to Unity’s Friends with Flair, and their Month long challenge, and also to Sparkle N Sprinkle.

MarchApril-challenge-sketch

I have used Unity’s itty bitty stamp called “Happy Birthday.” (Follow the link to get yours, it’s on sale for only $2.99)

IB-694-HAPPY-BIRTHDAYI used Stampin’ Up’s! card stock in “Raspberry Ripple” #126842

I used a glitter technique that Jill from Sparkle N Sprinkle thought us. It’s to use the tape they sell, lay it down, lay a piece of lace over it then I added the color “Waterscape” I then pealed up the lace then I added “Raspberry Soda” to it. For the sideways layer I used GT-“Moon Rise.”

Unity has a monthly challenge and I chose to use the card sketch challenge, it’s the one on the bottom left. The one on the Right is a scrapbook page challenge, then a color challenge, if your interested in playing along!! Click me if you like to play!

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

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.

GIU week- Winner’s Post!

Standard

Good morning friends,

Hope you all are not too mad at me for being slow on this winner’s post. It’s been totally crazy. As you all know if you read my Friday post we 3 flew from Florida to Virginia Beach, well due to weather conditions at our layover destination we were delayed 2 hours. We didn’t get home until midnight. Saturday was spent running around doing the final touches for Leia’s birthday party. Sunday was the B-day party and by time we got back to the house, I was so tired I fell asleep on the couch. Then Monday (Yesterday) I had all of you all’s names typed up, ran the “Random.org” and was getting ready to post when my G-baby woke up from her nap and…………………..

HIT THE OFF BUTTON ON THE CPU!!!!

Well needless to say I was a bit pissed! I just took a deep breath and picked her up and we went into the play room. I was so beside myself, and needed a walk, so her and I went for a really long walk. I cant get mad at her or say anything because she is just 2 and does not understand that Grandma needs to post. So the point is it’s been crazy. I do apologize for not having this post done on Saturday.

I did remember the persons name that Random.org came up with though.

The winner of my week of being the GIU girl is …..

Kris B.

So Kris B. please e-mail me your full name, address, and your pick of 2 itty bitty stamp sets from Unity, so I can send it to them and you will receive your 2 sets from Unity.

I colored the flower, leaves and 2 butterflies with Copics. I added seed beads and Crystal Effects in the center of the main flower.
