GIU Post #3 - Everyone You Meet!

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  I am really enjoying my Growing In Unity week!  My next card uses one of my all time favorite Unity Stamp Co. stamps... Everyone You Meet!  Actually it's my favorite quote/saying and something that I really try my best to remember.  


For my stamped panel, I used the watercolor smooshing method to apply my color.  I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  To apply  Peacock Feather and Picked Raspberry Distress ink, I  smooshed the mini cubes directly onto the wax paper and then misted it with my Distress Sprayer.  I then misted my Bristol Smooth Cardstock and pressed the wax paper ink side down onto it.  I used a heat tool to dry it and then reapplied the inks until I was happy with my background.  Once I had the panel completely dry, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and then clear heat embossed it. I used a bit more of the Picked Raspberry as well as Peeled Paint Distress Ink and an Aqua Painter to paint in the flowers.  My Stampin' Up! Lots of Labels Dies were used to cut out the sentiment and then cut another larger label out of Tempting Turquoise Cardstock.  I tied a piece of Black and White Gingham Ribbon around the Turquoise Label and then attached the sentiment label over it with foam tape.  My card base is 110# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock that measured 11" x 4 1/4" and was scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding note card.  I used a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to cut the rounded corner on the upper right and lower left corner.  My patterned paper measured 4" x 5 1/4" and was rounded the same as the card base and adhered with Fast Fuse.    I also used Fast Fuse to adhere the label layers since it is a strong adhesive and holds well.  I finished this one off by adding some Lucy's Little Things Rainbow Jewels onto the cardfront with Multi Medium Matt adhesive.   I think it turned out super cute and I hope you liked it!  

Remember at the end of the week, I will be drawing 2 winners that have commented on my posts.  I hope you are feeling lucky!  Blessings, Tina

  1. Beautiful card and the sentiment is so true. I really like the rounding off of the two corners. I have seen that done on panels for a card before, but not the card base too.

  22. Great card, and love sentiment. Some of us fight battles that are not seen. I need to get this stamp, I deal with anxiety attacks and people can be cruel in comments "its all in head", "get over it" etc. I wish it was that easy.
