Unity KOM Sketch Challenge - December

This is the sketch for the month:

And this is the card that I made:

I used the paper, ribbon, and embellies from SEI WinterSong collection, the circle was cut using Spellbinder's Splendid Circles and the stamp from Unity's KOM Sep 2010. 

Unity Challenge - Non-Traditional Color

This card was made using SEI's WinterSong. It is a collection of mint greens and dark reds. An unusual combination. I tried using a fish-eye lens for this photo but as I used the telephoto it decreased the effect of the fish-eye! Lesson learned.

FWF 11.8.12

I just got a Sizzix Flip It die and I am having lots of fun with my Thanksgiving cards! The patterned paper is from my scraps so I have no idea who the manufacturer is. The Unity stamp is from the KOM Sept. 2010. The other stamp is Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection.

KOM Sketch Challenge

This is my take on the following sketch:

I chose the the sentiment from the September 2010 Kit of the Month. 
The pp is Basic Grey Indian Summer. The leaf dies are Provo Craft. I used Memento ink. The ribbon and cardstock are from my stash.


FWF and Unity Challenge Pumpkins - UNITY STAMP CO

Well the camera changed the colors of orange on this card! The first photo is the outside and the second photo is the inside of the card. This is for my granddaughter. I used several dies from Sizzix: Beware and Crow from a Sizzlets set, Pumpkins w/Crow & Leaves and Spider and Spiderweb Bigz dies. Can you see the transparent spiderweb the spider is floating on? It pops out when you open the card. The "beware" stamp is from Unity Stamp Co Witching Hour Itty Bitty. The paper is SEI.

FWF 10.5.12

This is a card for a friend's wedding. I love this stamp from the May 2010 KOM because it is a little bit sweet and a little bit rock and roll just like her! I used Tattered Angels Waterslide (I think) Glimmer Mist and a Glimmer Screen from Seaside On the Beach for the background. The crystals are Crystal stickers (oh, really?) Mark Richards. I colored with Copics on paper from stash. The ribbon is Hug Snug.
