KOTM Monday with Heather H

Good morning! Heather here to share a simple watercolor card using the current Kit of the Month - Be My Bird:

Make sure and head over to read the details on the Kit of the Month! Here is the April Kit of the Month - there are only a few days left to join and start with this one!

I fell in love with this sweet birdie - and die a bit of masking to one of the sentiments to remove the part about flowers so it fit better with my little birdie. A bit of simple watercolor, a die cut frame, and some pretty pattern paper peeking out are all it took for this card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - have a wonderful day!!!

SOTW Springtime Owl

Happy Sunday Unity peeps!
Angeline here to share with you the brand new SOTW for this week "Springtime Owl".

Here is a card I made using the beautiful owl and head full of flowers. :)

Unity Stamp Company: SOTW Springtime Owl #unitystampco #scrappyscrappy #sotw #stamping #stamp #card #cardmaking #papercraft #katscrappiness #copic #coloring #cratepaper #owl #diecut

I colored the owl using my Copic markers, which I matched the colors to my Crate Paper patterned paper. I then added some die cut using Kat Scrappiness dies.

Here are some samples that the Design Team has made too:

But hey.. don't worry bout it.
As you know, Unity always have something up their sleeves. 
Trust them to have BETTER things for you planned out!

Till then, have a wonderful weekend.

SMAK/LOL Saturday

Happy Weekend, Unity Friends!
It's Kary and today I'd like to share a project made with this month's Beautiful SMAK kit.

This kit is so fun and I think the images are so cool and versatile for all crafters.
Here is the card I made.  This time I didn't really focus on getting the coloring right.  It was nice to just splash some colors onto the flowers and concentrate on creating the background. All I did was place a coffee stain stencil and sponge some Distress Oxide inks (Faded Jeans and Broken China) around the floral images.  I added some shimmer spritz (Sheer Shimmer Spritz - Sparkle) as a finishing touch.  I wish I can show you what it looks like in real life cos the photo just doesn't show the sparkle.

If you like the SMAK kit, please read all about it here and subscribe. You won't regret it!!
If you love a smaller kit, you might find the Layers of Life kit suitable.  By the way, I hear that LOL kits are on sale this weekend...
Thank you for spending part of your Saturday with us at Unity.
Have a great day!!

Inspiration Wednesday

Hello Unity peeps,

Jolande here with some inspiration from the Netherlands
 I am so proud to see that the Marleen and Jolande stamps are used so much.
What do you think about this beauty!!

Heike is working a lot with the Unity stamps 
(she agreed that it is the Rolls Royce under the stamps ((lol))) 
She did make this ArtJournal page a time ago.

And what about these cute little cards! Rebecca did make them for a friend

 (and it wasn't me)
She made a beautiful card for my birthday so I don't complain.
And these cards are made by Betty. 

So you can see the Unity stamps are a must have in the Netherlands 

And this is Marleen, Betty and me during the biggest stamp event in the Nederlands

Have a good week !

Hey there Unity friends! Maria here with DT Tuesday!  

I decided to play with this month's awesome SMAK kit and created this jumbo tag:

This tag is huge sized about 4x8 with a black base it was so much fun to play around with.  On the background I used a stencil and Distress Oxide inks. I edged the tag with white craft ink and added the stars in the lower left using Texture Paste. I colored in the pretty lady using a waterbrush and Inktense water color blocks.

Check out this fabulous SMAK Kit called Sparkle Every Day:

Are you in the Unity Show & Tell FB group?  If not you need to be it's amazing where all kinds of fabulous Unity creations are shared! 

Here are a few recent creations that caught my eye of members there:

Be My Bird Kit of the Month Monday ~ Foiling with Laminator

Hi there, it's Gaylynn with this project for Kit of the Month Monday.

Sentiment:  Just like flowers, some people brighten your day just by being there.

For this card, I accented with gold foil, using a Deco Foil adhesive pen, gold Deco foil transfer sheets and a Yourstory laminating machine.
I selected a few tiny areas to shine with this technique.

The foil will shine when the light is just right, and then other times it will not be as shiny.  With movement it sparkles.  Here is a picture of it out of the direct light.  The gold is there, just so difficult to photograph.

Here is a quick tip video tutorial of the foiling process using a laminating machine.

Here is the lovely Be My Bird April 2017 Kit of the Month membership kit.
Each month begins a new kit.  This one will become searchable when the May kit becomes available.

And here is one more look at the sparkle:

Happy Spring.

SOTW #276 | Stephanie Gold

Hey there! Stephanie Gold here with a BRAND new Stamp of the Week (SOTW) for you!!

No automatic alt text available. 
Isn't that girl's hair just GORGEOUS?! AND she has wine! She's my spirit stamp. ;) Here are the cards I made with her:

So I am thinking I was really in an Easter color mood this week haha. And my kids kept stealing - I mean borrowing - my colored pencils so now all I have are browns, dark yellow, and 4 of the same green. Mama crafters out there... do you share this "problem?" So anyway... no coloring today lol.

I am so obsessed with this stamp!! I can't wait to see what you all make with it!! Please tag me in our Unity Show & Tell Facebook Group when you post with this stamp! :) 

Much love everyone! Have a wonderful Easter and week!

Xo, Stephanie

April SMAK & LOL!!

 Hi there Unity friends! Karen here sharing a card set that I made 
using the April 2017 & Nov 2016 SMAK Kits!

For each of these cards, I decided to use the April 2017 SMAK
kits for the top layer!  Then, I used the November 2016 SMAK kit 
for the bottom layer!  The bottom layer is pretty subtle, but
 I thought it would a great idea to use the wonderful background
stamps for the back part of each card.  The newspaper print
is the background stamp I used on the birdie card.
Then, the music print on the card with the two hearts!

You'll notice, I added a little paper clip, with twine bow and pearl,
and a little doily tucked away, with vintage background paper!  For an added pop of color,
I used Stickles for the sparkly hearts, and white gel pen to the bits of flowers!

Love this month's kit....  

What a great way to mix and match with the November SMAK kit...

Don't forget, there's a new Layers of Life kit that just released...

Have an awesome day!

Hugs & Smiles,
