Whoop! Whoop! Let's Hear It For the Guest Hopper!!!

I am so excited to have won the Unity {be inspired} Challenge! One of the prizes (besides a BOAT LOAD OF STAMPS) is a chance to be a Guest blog hopper! So here goes.....

The Hop starts here on Thursday 2.26 with the Unity Blog.

I have a few cards to share with you.

This is the "birdie conversation" set. I colored the birdie with Copics and used Distress ink for the background. The patterned paper is American crafts and I die cut it using Stitched Rectangles and Squares.

The stamp is Donna Downey "poppies". The sentiment is from "Everything Easter". I watercolored with Distress Ink for this card after heat embossing with white embossing powder.

This is the front of the card and below is the inside. I used "Love Brings You Home".

I used the "J{our}ney" stamp from the "Explore. Discover. Escape." stamp set.
The background stamp is a map of Rome from Hero Arts.  The frame and stamp is from Sizzix. This card is for a friend's engagement. She is a world traveler!

This is the "Welcome to the Hood" set. Thanks to Angeline Choo for the inspiration! When I saw her cute card I knew I had to have that stamp!

I used Unity sentiments for this card.
I used "#Hashtag Kit", "Elephant Behind", and a "Age is Only a Number". This is my husband's birthday card. We have two black and tan, long-haired dachshunds, hence the coloring of the dog. The image on the inside of the card (the back end of the dog) wiggles like it is wagging her tail! 

Thanks for being with me today. Thanks to Unity for always supporting their customers. They are the most giving company around!

Here are the designers for Unity:

An Evening Roast

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge was to add texture. I used SSS Falling Snow stencil for stars adding Distress Ink to modeling paste. The critters are from Lawn Fawn's "Love You S'More set.

My Husband's Birthday Card!

We have two long-haired, Black and Tan Dachshunds which influenced the coloring of this cute puppy from Art Impressions (To The End).  The inside of the card has the backside of the dog which is on a little spring to make it wiggle! All the sentiments are stamps from Unity Stamp Co.

This card will be linked to the Art Impressions "Front and Back" Challenge, Simon Says Stamps "All Creatures Great and Small" and the Lawnscaping Birthday 

More Bugs & Kisses

I made these cute bug cards for friends' birthdays. I thought this paper looked like there were lightening bug glows in the background. I used the Peek-a Boo die from Pretty Pink Posh for the birthday wishes.

The Bugs & Kisses stamps and dies are from Lawn Fawn.
