Growing in Unity Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to The Growing in Unity Blog Hop!  If you've already been hopping, thanks so much for continuing on.  If you've started with my blog, please make sure to take the hop for lots of Unity Inspiration!  I have two cards to share with you today.

My first card is all about coffee!  I've used the Fall To Go Stamp Set along with the Coffee Lovers Paper Pack!


I stamped my cup with Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto a sheet of Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  The cup was colored with Zig Clean Color Markers... they blend beautiful onto the Bristol Smooth  Cardstock!  The cup is so big and beautiful that I almost didn't use a sentiment at all but I realized there was some blank space at the bottom of the cup that was just enough room.  Then I did the unthinkable... I cut the blessed off of the sentiment.  But don't worry... I cut it in such a way that if I want to add it back to stamp the full sentiment, it will fit back in like a puzzle piece.  Isn't the background paper from the Coffee Lovers Paper Pack beautiful!  I matted the background in Black and then added some mustard lace trim that I thought fit the color scheme nicely.   After cutting the cup image out with a stitched rectangle die, I added it to the cardfront with some foam squares at the top and the bottom and avoided the middle where the lace trim was.  

My next card is a simple Christmas Card using the Yuletide Border Background Stamp and the A Joyous Season Sentiment Kit Stamp Set.  It has such beautiful Christmas greetings!



The background border stamp was stamped in Soft Suede Ink and colored with Stampin Blend Alcohol Markers.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out a panel and added it to a Cherry Cobbler A2 Cardbase.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Neenah Classic Solar White Cardstock first with Versamark, and then with Real Red Ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment was cut out with a smaller stitched rectangle die and added with foam squares onto the middle of the card panel.  I finished this one off with three sparkling gems.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please make sure to stop by!  Since I'm the last on the hop, to continue on, just click Crystal's link and start back at #1.  Blessings, Tina

  18. I like them both and need to try and use my ribbon more since it added such a great touch to your cup. When I need to use only part of a stamp, I usually just mask it off with painters tape, ink it up, remove the tape then stamp. That way I don’t have to cut and it makes a lot of the sentiments more versatile.
