Acrylic, Paint and Unity FFF Day!

Good Morning,

I wasnt sure if I would be able to post this today. I thank God for allowing my internet connection to finally be available. We had wind storms the past couple days which affected our utilities and cable service.

Well, I am on a buying freeze and need to use all the product I have stored in my scrapbook room. I have never took the opportunity to play with acrylic or with using paint to stamp. This is my first try with it. So please provide any advice with the type of material or techniques that works well with acrylic layout. I placed the white paper behind it so you could see the Unity puzzle piece stamps I used and the rubon.

I decided to offer blog candy too. I am only requesting you to comment or advice and become a follower of my blog. I will pull a winner on Monday. The blog candy will be one of the few kits I have available from a class I taught and a My Heart Sings Unity Stamp too. The picture of the kit is on the right panel of my blog.

Thank you for looking.

Another Unity with Flair Post

Good Morning...

Sorry for a late posting. It slipped my mind with all the running I had to do this morning. A couple weeks ago I applied to the tattered angels design team. Here are two layouts of the five layouts I submitted that had unity stamps on them. I was required to use 80% Tattered Angels products but I only used Unity Stamps. Everything on these layouts are Tattered Angels except for the paper, canvas, petaloo flowers (layout 1) and stamps. I used many glimmer mist, glimmer glam, glimmer glaze, all the chipboard and glimmer glass.

Layout 1 Ingredients:
Stamps: Unity Stamp Company Worn Music

Layout 2:
Stamps: Unity KOM 09 and Confession Kit

Thanks for looking

Unity Stamp Company World Card Day Challenges Cont

Happy Friday Everyone! Well, I'm still attempting the 23 Challenges for Unity Stamp Company. They are my favorite stamp company so the opportunity of winning a year of kit of the months is worth it. Unfortunately, I still have plenty to finish by Saturday so its a long, fun creating day for my 3 year old daughter and I. The few things I learned while working on these challenges are

1) I love creating cards with meaning behind them. I was easier to create one when I know someone was going to receive it.
2) I prefer creating invitations over cards. But my favorite is layouts and altered items.
3) I have a lot of stamps never inked before so it gave me an opportunity to use them.
4) I realized I have alot of scrapbooking supplies especially paper I bought for my babies scrapbook. So its time for me to finish those layouts. That makes me feel so much better about my buying freeze.
3) I have my next ideas ready for some layouts and can not wait to work on them. Lol!

Anyway, my Unity with Flair posting is one of the cards I just finish for one of the 23 Challenges. It has not been posted yet to my splitcoaststampers gallery yet. So i figure it was okay to present it today. This card was for Challenge #1 - paper piercing

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Unity Stamp Company KOM 09
Cardstock & Pattern Paper: DCWV
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Misc: Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Embossing folder

Thanks for looking!

Unity Friends with Flair and World Card Day Challenges

Good Morning....

I decided to play along with all 23 Unity Stamp Company World Card Making Day Challenges. Who wouldnt want the chance to win free kit of the month from Unity all year long? I know I do. So I created a plan for me to accomplish each challenge by October 16, 2010.

So for today's Unity Friends with Flair post, I decided I would show one of the cards I made for Challenge #17- No pattern paper. For my card, I embossed the cardstock with my cuttlebug and sprayed olive vine and viva pink glimmermist in the background. I used a stamp from Nov 2009 KOM for the words "go ahead wish". Also for this challenge, I was able to play with my new i-rock tool with the mirror glam rocks. I know this is going to become a favorite tool of mines.

Card Ingredients:
Cardstock: DCWV
Stamp: Unity Stamp Company Nov 09 KOM
Embossing folder: Swirls (cricut)
Glimmermists: Tattered Angels Olive Vine and Viva Pink
Bling: Imaginisce I-rock mirror glam rocks
Flowers & Button: Misc
