Friends of Unity May 2021 Blog Hop

 Hello,  It's time for the Friends of Unity blog hop. This month's theme is Flora and Fauna. I do love Unity flower stamps. They are my favorite and make up a huge bit of my collection.

 


 I used one of my newer floral stamps for this card. The set is called Smile You are Loved and it has this beautiful flower image and great sentiments.

I stamped the image on Canson XL watercolor paper. I colored with with Art Philosophy Tropical palette. After it dried, I used a colored pencil to give it some shading and depth. After the panel dried, I die cut it with the Frilly Lace die from Gina Marie Designs.

Please be sure to hop along with everyone else. You won't be disappointed, there is always so much inspiration.

Friends of Unity April Blog Hop

 Happy Spring everyone. I am so looking forward to warmer weather. Today, the Friends of Unity are hopping and we would love for you to come along. Our theme this months is Birds and Bees. Perfect for spring weather.


My first card is of course a bird card. Chickens to be exact. I loved this set when I first saw it and I can't believe this is the first chance I have had to use it.

I used What's Up set for this card. I water colored the chickens with my Art Philosophy Pastel Dream palette. The background is Distress Oxide in Speckled Egg smooshed all over. I stamped the Chicken Wire background three times to cover the slimline size card.  The slimline die is from Gina Marie Designs and the circle dies are from Waffle Flower. I love their nested and additional nested dies in all the shapes. 


My second card is of course bees. I am super excited because I think this is my first "successful on the first try" shaker card.

I used the beehive and bees from the March 2020 KOM, Spring & Things. I water colored them with Distress Oxide inks. The background is two Distress Oxides smooshed in layers and then I used Honey Mustard to stamp the Honeycomb background over it. The sentiment is from Spring Unity. The die I cut the background with is from Gina Marie Designs. I just filled the shaker with some random white and yellow sequins and some yellow seed beads I had on hand. 


Be sure to follow along with the hop and comment as you go. I am offering a prize this month. Check back on next months hop to find out if you are the winner.
