GIU Blog Hop!

 Welcome to my blog!  Super excited to be participating in the GIU Blog Hop! 

Unity Stamps can be used in any way shape or form!  

I was asked to create a "thank you" tag to accompany a business gift.  I used ...hope is a beautiful thing.  I have turned this large floral stamp upside down and only used part of it.  The butterfly, while gorgeous, didn't fit the request so I camouflaged it as an additional flower.  Using a "freebie" tag that was included in an order, I measured, printed and cut tags from white cardstock.  Stamped, colored and then used star dust stickles to add that little something extra!  Twine from May arts twine in natural and bella creationz twine in autumn splendor tied in a bow finish them off!

I am currently anticipating the arrival of my order from the sale and loving all the new releases that came out this month!  Unity Stamps are the best for creating beautiful things! :) Edited -- just placed my 2nd order today! :)

I'm the last one on the hop, but if you'd like to start at the beginning, here is the order! :)

Midnight CLEAR!

 It's getting down to the end at Jingle Belles.  These last few challenges should be the push to the mailing out of all these beautiful cards made all year long!  The current challenge is to use something clear!  To be honest, I had to scratch my head for a minute to figure out what to do!

This snowflake covered clear acetate sheet came in a paper pack purchased a few years's just been hanging out since!

It measured 8" x 8" so I cut it into four squares and will make the three additional cards to match!  I used two scraps of coordinating blue and tore one to create the edge.  The Tim Holtz Woodlands thinlits dies I just purchased a few weeks ago!  Used silver sticker paper to create these beautiful trees!  Stamped Merry Christmas in nocturne versafine clair and covered with Wow! ultra shimmer embossing powder!  

Thanks to Jingle Belles to give me a challenge!!!

Holiday Creature Feature!

 I can still use a Halloween was only 2 days ago! LOL The current challenge at Jingle Belles is to feature an animal.  Well here it is again, the reindeer stamp (cheerful prancing) from Unity Stamp Co.!  I didn't realize how much I use this until I've gone back to look at previous cards!  LOL

I started with the blue shaded ones.....

(also used a little Christmas carol and Tim Holtz Woodlands thinlits dies)

then couldn't decide if I liked them, so moved on to the red/black/kraft/plaid ones.....

made a total of 6 cards all together and whether or not I liked them not withstanding.....I have 6 more cards to add to the stash!  I'm at 80 cards!  

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm so glad I found this blog/challenge group!  It definitely saves my December to know that I can start addressing and mailing cards right away and I have so many different choices!!  I don't have to rush and scramble to get cards made!  Thank you Jingle Belles and I'm not done yet!
