Hello everyone. It's that time of month again where the Friends of Unity hop.
I am excited for this month. Our theme is a Color Challenge of Sage, White and Kraft. We would love for everyone to join in using their Unity Stamp co stamps.
I was able to make a couple of cards this month. My first one is pretty simple and I think would make a great masculine birthday card.
I started this card by blending Distress ink in Bundled Sage over an A2 panel. I splashed some water on to get those great oxide spots this ink is so perfect for. Once it was dry, I placed it in my Misti and stamped the new Topography background stamp in the same color. I stamped it a couple of times to get good impression and to build up the color just a bit for that tone on tone look. I blended the same in on a scrap of paper and stamped the gnome from Gnome-one Like You onto it. I then stamped it on Neenah Desert Storm and on white. I fussy cut the various pieces and reassembled it as a paper pieced image. I used the Happy Birthday dies from Chic Script Salutations die set also from Unity Stamp Co. I layered it all up with Neenah Desert Storm card stock.
I have to admit that I am totally in love with the background stamp I used on this card. You may see it many more times. I stamped the Tin Tile background stamp on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut this down with a stitched rectangle die. I then stamped the image and sentiment from Bloom from Within in the Distress Oxide Bundled Sage color. I used my Misti and stamped the color a couple of times. I left the image and panel in place and stamped again with Versamark ink and heat embossed it all with clear embossing powder. I popped this panel up with foam tape and placed the whole thing on a white card blank.
Be sure to hop along with the rest of the team. Also be sure to join in and share your cards made with this awesome color combo.

The gnome card is so darling! I think this would be perfect for a baby boy's first birthday. And the 2nd card is really lovely; classy.ReplyDelete
That little gnome card is adorable but my favorite is the one with the potted plants and the tin tile background. It makes me think of fall, and bringing the herb garden in for the winter. <3ReplyDelete
