Christmas Wishes for My Unity Friends

Hey there Unity peeps!! Welcome to Unity's Friday's Friends with Flair blog hop!!  I just love checking out all the talent that Unity stamps promote!! I am always so inspired with new and fabulous ways to use their stamps each week when I visit your lovely blogs!!  So thank you for that!!


Today's post is a Christmas card... and a quick and easy one at that.  I was happy with how it turned out, but I do admit to feeling a little guilty when I don't spend a couple of hours on a card!!  LOL!  This came together in under thirty minutes and could be reproduced in far less than that!



I pulled out two of Unity's Christmas stamps for this creation.  The beautiful pine trees are called Deep Woods and they were stamped with Versamark for a tone on tone look.  This is one of my favorite ways to stamp background scenes and images.



The sentiment is from Unity's Joy & Wonder set designed by Lisa Hetrick.  It was the perfect size and sentiment for my card.  I used embossing ink and Opaque Winter Wonderland embossing powder from Stamp n Stuff by Stampendous to emboss the words and add the snow to the  trees.





The DP is from MME and I had a recycled ribbon that was perfect to add for that extra pop!  So what do you think?  Not bad for a quick and easy card.  It has a nice touch of elegance and could be the card I choose to make in mass quantities to send out at Christmas this year!

Be sure to head over to the Unity Blog and start at the top of the list of Friends with Flair!  Have you found the blinkie yet?? Someone will be the lucky recipient of some FREE stamps just for finding it and leaving a comment on that blog!


Want to see some {Ippity} stuff too???  Then head over to the {Ippity}Opportunity Blog and see the latest creation I have to share with you today.  It is a fun birthday card using several of the Ippity kits.


Need to buy some {Ippity}??  If you are interested in buying the full collection that was released this month, I have four complete sets to sell and will sell them for a very reasonable price to the first four people who contact me.  Check out my {Ippity} blog for more details and the pricing...There's Ippity in My Bucket!

Have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend!  And may your bucket be overflowing with lots of inspiration as we visit our friend's blogs today!
