Colorful Joy...

After all the cold bleak weather we have had in Northern Virginia I pulled out my bright colored washi tape and started playing around and after several ideas this is the end result...I used Unity Stamp Choose Joy sentiment and used Copic markers to add some color to it...definitely got me in the mood for spring!

And Baby Makes Three

Getting back into making baby's been awhile but now a friend of mine is expecting a baby so I thought of this punch from Martha Stewart and this Unity Stamp Bitty Regards sentiment which  seems to make the perfect baby card...

Love a Sunday afternoon in my craft room...I got this fun idea from Pinterest...which is a great place to find inspiration...I used two Unity Stamp Co. stamps...a little bit washi and Bitty Regards...pulled out my cricut
it for the how the yellow twine gives it a bit of pop...

Always love sending a friend a simple hello card so I pulled out my Unity Alphabetically Adorable set and went to work and this is what I came up who to send it to!

welcome home baby...

When I started to make this card I had no intention of it being a 
baby card. I had what I call "card maker's block". I looked up at my
punches and the elephant one jumped out at me.
All of the sudden I thought of a baby card and then thought this sentiment would be perfect too. I really liked how this card turned out.

The End is Near...

Can you tell that I love this stamp from Unity? Here is another version of a card that I did about a week ago. This time I added some more color and changed the sentiment.

CAS(E) this sketch! #64
It's been awhile since I have played CAS(E) this sketch! Challenge but when I saw this sketch this stamp from Unity Stamp Co. jumped out at me!
This is one of their Stamp of the Week ones which I just love! I think this stamp and sentiment make the perfect CAS card!

It's a Good Day...

Gotta love a Snow Day! Having a Snow Day gives me extra time to play around with my stamps. I have been on a Unity Stamp kick lately. Today I ended up using this adorable stamp. I wish I could hop on my bike right now but we have about a foot of snow on the ground!

An Elephant Never Forgets...

Growing up everyone told me that I had a memory like an elephant which is true! When I saw this stamp on the Unity Stamp Co. website it called my name! I have recently discovered burlap and thought this would be the perfect card to add to use it with. I also added the bow to kind of double promise that I will always remember...kind of like a bow that one ties around their finger so they don't forget! I used my usual Crumb Cake from Stampin' Up!, along with their Whisper White. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the elephant and the sentiment. I used Cool Grey Copic Sketch marker (still working on my Copic coloring skills!) and Stampin' Up! stampin' write Melon Mambo for the heart and butterfly. For the punch I used Stampin' Up 2 1/2 inch Circle.

Matching Socks

This is one of my favorite Unity Stamp Co. stamps. I believe this was either my first or second stamp that I bought from them. I certainly live by this motto!
I used my usual Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake paper, Copic Markers, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and Stampin' Up! Clothes Pins. I am happy how it turned out!
