Fall to Go Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello!
I'm almost embarrassed to say that this is my VERY first time playing
along with the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I'm a coffee lover and fall is 
right around the corner so it's the perfect time for me to get with the program, right?

What else says coffee and fall than a cup full of Pumpkin Spice anything?
I used Fall to Go to create this card and that stamp is by Unity Stamp Company.

My goal is to create a few more cards to play along this week.  I'm so amazed by 
the amount of participation, the creativity AND wonderful sponsors.

Hope you have a great day today...

Supplies included in this design:

Unity Stamp Company : Fall to Go stamp
Stampin Up : Foil vellum paper

Fall to Go


Hello everyone...I'm on the Unity Stamp Company Blog today. 
And.....
It feels like fall in North Carolina today so I thought I'd share this 
cozy Fall to Go card with you.
I think this stamp kit is the perfect representation of
Pumpkin Spice Latte.
I used a kraft file folder for the base of my card then stamped the
edges with Archival Black Ink using a stamp from the
I am Who I am kit.  
Loosely water coloring using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers added the perfect amount of fall color to my image.
I was trying to play along with the current challenge in the Show and Tell group
on Facebook with my design this week.


I adore the Show and Tell group and encourage you to
become part of the fun.  

So much inspiration and helpful tips shared there.


And here's something that really touched my soul regarding fall that I
saw on Pinterest.  
Pinterest Inspired Fall Motivation

Have a beautiful day.

Full of Fall {Unity}

Hey there.
I'm sharing a fun project over on the Unity Blog Stamp Company blog today
using one of the recently released stamps for fall called
Full of Fall 
Coloring this image was so fun.  You can go crazy with lots of detail or
just add basic colors throughout as I did. The sentiment is just beautiful.
 Adding white gel really made the images stand out on the kraft card stock.

Full of Fall 


I found a few pieces in the Unity Show and Tell group on Facebook that I'd like to share as well.
Fabulous colors and beautiful inspiration.

 Eileen Mathys  created this stunning card with such a pretty background.
  

And next is Amanda Garrett's card.  Also from the Show and Tell group.
She used fantastic colors as well.

Fabulous job ladies. 
 I absolutely LOVE the creativity and inspiration found in that group. 
Wishing you a beautiful day.

Her pixie hair is THE cutest.  August is a big birthday month for our family.
I'm excited to get the dates filled in.

Have a happy day today....

Wanderlust {Unity SMAK}


WANDERLUST:
(n.) a strong desire to travel. to
understand ones very existence.


I'm on the Unity Stamp Company blog today sharing a project I created with the new
July SMAK kit.

This is definition is my FAVORITE part of this amazing July SMAK kit. 



I created my first page layout in a very long time using a few 
photos that I "borrowed" from my son.   He has always been a
wanderlust child and this kit suits him perfectly. 


The background was so easy to create using the July kit and
some washi tape/paper additions.  You'll also see a bit of white
accented throughout.  A few touches with a gel pen really makes
the design stand out.


Thanks for letting me share my page with you.

You've Got a Friend in Me {Unity}

Doesn't the title of this post make you want to sing?
"You've got a friend in me...you've got a friend in me....not working for ya?"  

Sorry

Ok, on to the post.

Today I'd like to share with you a darling stamp that was just released at 
Phyllis Harris really knows how to tug the heart strings with her sweet, sentimental images, doesn't she?  I am in love with this scene and I hope you like it too.


Friend in Me


I very loosely water colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
And you'll notice the texture on the cloud?  That is added using Marvy Uchida Snow Marker.
There is a very quick video on my YouTube channel showing how I did this.  


I added a close up for you to really see how "fluffy" the cloud appears.





Be sure to stop by Unity to enjoy the site wide sale going on right now.

This darling stamp set is yours as a gift when you make a purchase of $75
It's called Sweet Peas 
designed by Tierra Jackson

Sweet Peas 
I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to color this cutie and just added a few touches of 
white gel pen for accents...easy Peas-y  

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.
Wishing you a fabulous weekend.

A Daisy and a Lady {UU}




Happy Friday!!  

I'm over on the Unity Stamp Company Blog today with the newly released
Uniquely Unity Collection Membership Kit.

I absolutely fell in love with this kit called A Daisy and a Lady.

The flower is such a great size and that little lady .... just precious.

I used Copic Markers to shade the flower and Clear Wink of Stella for the sparkles.

The Die set that I used is from 
 the scallops are just the right touch 
for my design.

Unity HOP with new releases


It's HOP time again!
So much inspiration from the DT this month...but what else is new, right?

Hello Little Birdie Kit by Tierra Jackson

I just used Copic Marker to shade in this image.  
Tierra has added so much detail to this sweet birdie. LOVE IT.

I can't get enough of these light bulbs. 
My stash of "congratulations" cards is pretty slim so 
this kit came out at the perfect time.  
Again, just some Copics and a few Nuvo Drops were all 
that I needed.
