Unity Thursday.....So many stamps, so many ideas....need to quit my day job!

Hello everyone!!

Are you excited to be here right now??
I AM!!!

There are just so many awesome releases happening at Unity right now...I wish I could spend all my time stamping away with all that gorgeous red rubber.....
I did manage to get creating a fair bit....but I just want to play MORE!!! 
Just wait until you see all the releases....you will completely understand!

I think I may have mentioned this before but because I am in Canada my happy mail always takes a wee bit longer to get to me....in consequence I just received my October KOM. I was super excited (as always) to bust into my kit and get creating...these first two cards are the result:







This week's Stamp of the Week somehow had me inspired to go back to the white embossing on vellum look....BUT I wanted to try something new too....I saw this technique in my travels along blogs and pinterest (I can't remember where, for the life of me) and have wanted to try it since. After you stamp and emboss on the vellum you flip the image over and color with your copics on the back side of the image...because the vellum in see through the color shines through giving it a watercolor kinda look. I had fun trying it out and came up with a couple different color combos. Since I had my images all colored up, I figured I mind as well make them into cards...hence why I have three cards for this week's Stamp of the Week. Here they are:







Well...that was all the creating I had time for (I know, not too shabby, but I just have so many more ideas dancing around in my head). So onto the rest of the hop....

As always we have TWO amazing
 Unity filled PRIZE PACKAGES to give away as part of this week's blog hop.
Check out the awesome prize this week - some of our brand NEW releases!!



All you have to do is leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.

Unity Thursday - Coffee & Snow Peeps

Hi everyone!!
Thanks for coming by today....

It was my boss' birthday this week.
I work at a coffee shop. 
I have worked there for a total of 10 years 
(I had a few years off and then went back so not 10 consecutive years).
This is the FIRST time I made her a birthday card!
YUP.....pretty sad.
Especially since she has been KEY in getting me here today...creating cards and therefore working with Unity Stamp Company. 
The first cards I ever made, she loved...and encouraged me to keep on going. 
AND she said I should sell them in her coffee shop.
So I did...and have been ever since....
So thanks to her, here I am today, sharing a picture of the card I made for her birthday....


I knew when I started creating that I wanted to use a "coffee" cup on her card...it just HAD to be....
and thankfully this older KOM came to the rescue...seriously, LOVE my kit's!!

November 2011 KOM 

And now for some NEW releases!!

Paper Smooches - Anything Goes Challenge

Hello everyone!

I had the chance to play with some of my Paper Smooches stamps not too long ago....
SOOOO when I saw that this week's challenge over on the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog was 'Anything Goes' I thought I would submit my cards and share them with you all.

I had so much fun creating these birthday cards....










And then this sweet little baby card...

Here's a list of the Paper Smooches stamp sets I used to create my cards:







There's quite a few...so great to mix and match all the sentiments so they work just perfectly for whatever you need.

Thanks so much for stopping by...
Have a sweet Sunday!

Hi everyone!!

Yikes - Unity has 40, 000 Facebook friends now!! 
That is incredible!
We are celebrating, so Happy Unity Thursday!

Thanks so much for being here with us today :)
I am currently cataloguing my Unity stamp collection (it will take me a while but once I am all done I will post all about it, I promise). This means that I am looking at all that gorgeous red rubber that I have managed to collect over the years....some old and some new....but all still fabulous!!
There are just so many beautiful stamps....I kinda can't wait for my cataloguing to be done so I will have more time to go back and easily access all these beauties...and play, play, PLAY!

I did create three cards for you today using some of the stamps that have passed through my hands lately....
'Hope you enjoy....

Happy New Baby


This was my FIRST KOM ever!!
And I certainly keep going back to it.


Thank You
