Growing in Unity Day 1

Yeah! It's day 1 of my Growing in Unity Day by Day originated by the lovely Ramsey. Each week a Unity Addict has a turn at highlighting Unity all week long. It's sort of a blog hop were each week there will be a new person in the spotlight to show you some awesome Unity projects. Last week Maria wowed us with her wonderful creations.


I have some great projects planned to show you all this week. I've been busy planning and I hope you enjoy them as much as I loved making them!


Ok, here we go:

Again, using my favorite paper, Cosmo Cricket Happy Camper, I made this card for a friend that just moved into her new house not too long ago. The Cottage stamp is from Unity's October KOTM. I colored the Cottage with my watercolor pencils and aquapen. The Home stamp is from which set? I can't remember and am being too lazy to go check. I'll let you know tomorrow! Of course I distressed all the edges with my Heidi Swapp edge distressor and inked them with catseye chalk ink. The base of the card is Kraft Cardstock, also used are Bazzill Salsa Verde and African Daisy.



For my Owl obsession I had to get Fluffy the Owl single. Same paper line as above, CC Happy Camper. Hoo's the best line is made using some Stampin' Up alphas. I hand cut Fluffy and then attempted to make my own glimmer mist but the spray ended up getting clogged up and was coming out in large blobs. So fluffy is spotted instead! Also used: Souflee white pen, paper piercer, ribbon and googlie eyes. I didn't take a picture of the inside before I sent to my boss for being the bestest boss ever! The inside says: OWL bet you are!




Oh yeah, don't forget to leave me some love in my comments as I will be giving away some blog candy on Hip Hop Thursday! What's HHT? See here!


Thanks for checking out my first day of Growing in Unity, Day by Day, All week long! Have a wonderful day and I'll have more tomorrow!
