Growing in Unity: Day 1

Yippee!! After waiting 11 months, 10 days, it's finally my week to share my Unity cards. 5 whole days of inspiration is coming your way...oh! and lets not forget the sponsored giveaway by Unity at the end of my week - a grab bag with 25 random stamps!

My first card I decided to use one of my favourite sets - I actually combined two (no, three!) Unity sets that really go well together. How do you use your Unity stamps? Would you mix and match them? When I first starting stamping (15 years ago) the thought of mixing sets would make me cringe - but now... no problems! I think it's a great way to make the most of your stamp collection.

Here are my cards using Unity: Tumbleweed Houses, On My Way and Gypsy Journal (sentiment only)




I coloured the images using a few of my ZIG brush pens and cut them out with my silhouette (for those who are visiting me for the first time - I try to avoid fussy cutting!) I added a few sewing machine details and adhered the houses and cars to the card front. 

The second card below, I played around with the layout adding the houses from Unity: On My Way . Apparently I own a lot of Unity stamps with house images! I also added the sentiment from Unity: ...Sometimes I Wonder. Which means I used four stamp sets instead of three! 





Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a grab bag of 25 stamps from Unity Stamp Co!  At the end of the week, I will randomly select two winners! 

Happy Crafting and see you tomorrow!

  15. I love how colorful your cards are, the AWEsome scenes of each and
    the stitching you added. Very creative cards. (And I just about always
    mix my sets; I actually find it harder to use just one set).
