Well if you are still coming back to follow me this week for my time for Growing in Unity then I thank you!! I have had such a great time inking up some of my otherwise neglected Unity stamps. As things settle down in life just a bit more I am hoping to get back to the daily challenges I used to do and also to playing more regularly with my Unity (and Ippity) stamps!!
My card for today was made for two challenges going on at SCS!! The first one was yesterday's Color Challenge (CC272) given by Betty Wright. We were to use Bermuda Bay, Real Red and Kraft for our creations.
The second challenge is from this week's Unity Addicts Challenge which has recently been reactivated for us to play along with. Maria has been so wonderful in keeping these coming and I hope that you will play along with us!! This week's challenge (UAC2) is to incorporate STAPLES on our projects!!
And here's my card...
I love how this came out!! The red and blue with the Kraft looks great!! I love the way everything pops off the Kraft!! The Unity stamps used here are from the Moments in Bloom and Naturally You May Stampin Store Kit! I LOVE this kit. But remember that they are only available from a Retail store so you can CLICK HERE to find a store near you, or an online store!
I used SU inks to stamp with... Real Red, Taken with Teal and Blue Bayou. The DP is from Kaiser Kraft. It worked for the color challenge because I don't have Bermuda Bay and it was a nearly perfect match.
Did you see the amazing crinkle ribbon I have on my card? My fabulous friend and Ippity partner in crime, Eva, sent me a sweet care package that contained a sampling of the crinkle ribbon she recently made! They are amazing. Love you Eva!! Thank you sooooo much!! Check out her blog post HERE about how she made it!!
For the Unity Addicts Challenge I used some red staples that I had in my stash. I thought they added a nice element to the card! If you can notice the slight shimmer on the red flower... it's because I added some Sakura Gelly Roll pen to the outer edges of the stamped image! It adds a nice sparkle!!
No matter what is going on in your life, be sure to take the time to notice all the beauty around you. It is everpresent and presents itself in so many ways! The gorgeous flowers, the beautiful sunsets, the adorable children of yours... remember that life is full of beauty!! Enjoy it and rejoice!!
