Visiting the Sweet Shop


This is my second day as a Growing In Unity Gal... what fun! Remember to leave a comment. Two lucky people (randomly selected from those who comment on my Growing In Unity blog posts) will receive 25 Unity stamps. You want a chance to win, I'm sure... and you can only win if you comment.

If you're not a regular on my blog, let me also explain about Tuesdays. Every Tuesday I attempt to do "something new" and post it on my blog. Sometimes these new things work out well; other times, not so much. I kind of like today's new.



It so happens that a while back (on Facebook) I saw a picture of a card someone had made using a darling Unity stamp (Meant for Adventure). The image had only been partially colored and all of the colored elements were red. You can actually see the card in the Unity store website HERE.

I was so impressed that I made a mental note to do this technique some Tuesday... and today is the day. I chose to use the Unity stamp set called Candy {Fashionista} for my card.






For a bit more fun, I stamped her dress and the bow in her hair on the same designer paper I used on the card, and did some paper-piecing.




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  14. Another wonderful creation. I don't know how you come up with all these ideas. I so enjoy looking at your cards. It's a different technique and makes the card stand out. What on earth do you do with all these cards you make? Every single day?? I've strained to get one birthday card done this week. LOL
