DT Tuesday with Andrea

Love it

I love the way it feels warm going down
I love the way it is good hot or cold
I love the way it can bring together friends
I love the way you can enjoy it all by yourself
I love the way it makes you feel better just holding it in your hands
I could go on and on but you get the picture

I really love tea

Which is why I had to have the stamp set I used on today's card

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Express it paper
Then coloured in the sweet images with my copic markers
My colours were easy to pick as was inspired by the current Unity colour challenge

One thing we like to do on DT Tues is to share cards that we enjoy
and I have to say I couldn't resist these ones using the same set I used by Jennifer Koleske McWilliams over at the Unity Show and Tell page on Facebook!

Great job Jennifer- I love them!

Now it is time to make another cuppa and get crafting!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello my FABULOUS friends!

Can you believe that June is almost over??? CRAZY! 
Besides the fact that the end of June means kids are out of school, it's WAY too hot, and it's berry picking season... The end of June means that you only have a couple more days to sign up for any of our monthly kit clubs and get June's kits winging their way to YOUR mailbox! 

Unity club kits are AMAZING! Our artist work very hard to bring you incredible images each month at an absolutely FANTASTIC price!

And today, I'm hoping to bring you a little inspiration...
(cuz Monday's need some inspiration, right?!?)

Did you know that you can BEND some stamps? YUP! And I promise, it won't hurt them! It's a great way to get more milage out of a single image!

Check it out....


For my card today, I used that beautiful poppy from June's KOTM bent a few different ways... along with a couple leaves. I heat embossed them in white on vellum, then used alcohol ink on the back side of the vellum. Easy and elegant!


Let's take a closer look at the Kit of the Month for June 2015...

Kit of the Month is a fun kit geared towards card makers (however, it is certainly not limited to cards!)  You get a full 8x10 sheet of rubber packed with images for $26/month. SWEET!  Click HERE to sign up.

Have a fantastic Monday, and a wonderful week!

Inspiration Wednesday..

Hai Unity fans,

Jolande here to give you some inspiration for this Wednesday!!
I don't now why, but Wednesdays are always good for inspiration.
 I can completely go out of my mind from all the 1 minute YouTube videos.
And guess what....I can't make them :( maybe it's because of my age....maybe because I am a nitwit 
of everything concerning the internet...or maybe I am who I am and do it my way :)

So my inspiration for today is....a photo tutorial!! 
I used watercolor paper

stamp with Color Box black!

clear embossing powder 
Use one drop of each color and spray some water 

Edge the corners with distress ink

I show you how to make this cute label in eight steps.
The stamps are oldies,  but so beautiful that I could not resist to use them.
you can find the Angie Blom stamp here!

Hope you like this, let me know :)

And there is one other thing....did you know that almost all our design members are on Pinterest????
Angela too ......
Look what we have found for inspiration.

Have a great day and a lot of stamping pleasure

Growing in Unity Wednesday

Welcome to Growing in Unity Wednesday.  This week Jen is up sharing her wonderful Unity creations!  

Meet Jen:

Here is a little something about Jen:

"Hi, I'm Jen and I blog over at Caffeinated Papercuts. Yes, the name is fun - coffee is my blood type and I love cutting up paper to make pretty things. :) I discovered Unity a few years ago and became thoroughly addicted, as is evident by all the moving boxes labelled 'Unity Stamps' I just unpacked...my husband teases that we had to move so I could have a bigger craft room!
I love to stamp, color, and create cards and scrapbook pages. I'm tickled that my son who starts kindergarten in the fall (where did the time go??) loves his new stamp cubby in Mommy's craft room - one of his favorites is a Unity airplane stamp! Seems like the next generation will be hooked on Unity as well...hehehehe... I'm lucky that my love of stamping has landed me on three design teams; Mountain Plains Crafters whom Unity sponsors, a2z Scrapbooking, and So Suzy Stamps. I never tire of getting inky, working on my coloring skills, and playing with old and new techniques."

Here is her great card:

Be sure to swing on by Jen's blog each day this week for lots of inspiration and your chance to win some Unity goodies!
