Design Team Tuesday

Hello Unity friends, Shemaine here with this week's Design Team Tuesday.

This week I am sharing some quick cards I created for my Mom. Sadly her mother passed away a few week's ago and she asked me to create some Thank you cards for all of the wonderful, caring people at her church who have been helping her thru this difficult time.

I inked up the February 2014 Sentiment set

I stamped up several images on watercolor paper and cut them to layer on some pre-made cardstock.

Then I used the new Prima watercolor pencils to color them in.

The result was easy to acheive and the pencils are really nice. My only complaint was that I bought a couple sets and some colors were repeated. I also purchased the watercolor brush which I also liked working with.

Now for this week's 

I found this beauty in the Unity Be Inspired Gallery from 

and this cute nautical inspired card from Caroline Bounds in the Unity Show and Tell FB group.

Thanks so much for joining me today! 

Here's a little something to lift you up.

new month, new KOTM

Hello my FABULOUS friends!

It may be Monday, but it comes with happy news...

A new month means...

a NEW Kit of the Month is available!!!! 

Isn't it AMAZING???

Spring is a time to start fresh...

I remember when I was little, I LOVED the fact that my birthday is in the spring. My parents would let me choose any activity I wanted to celebrate my birthday. I ALWAYS chose the zoo... And because it was spring, there were always babies.  Brand new little lives so full of LOVE and HOPE.

Recently I have been going through some really hard things, so one of the quotes from this new kit really spoke to me...

"No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again."

I figured if I needed to hear those words, there are probably others who do too. Sometimes, beginning again is hard, but just like those sweet baby animals... we can find our lives, once again, filled with LOVE and HOPE... At least that's the theory I'm choosing to believe. 

If you are interested in getting this HUGE 8.5x11 kit mailed to you... and a new one EVERY month, click HERE to join the club! You won't be disappointed! So many fabulous images and quotes EACH month... and considering the fact that they are high quality RUBBER... the price ($26/month) is AMAZING!

Have a truly WONDERFUL day!

Celebrate in Style

Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards! So super duper excited and grateful to be guest designing for Unity this month! I'm still pinching myself that I am posting here!

I have been playing a lot lately with layering different pattern papers with my stamped images - I just love the depth it gives, and the way it highlights my stamped images! I have also been playing with Copics a lot and learning more and more how to color. 

I just LOVED this beautiful image from the February Kit of the Month - how fun is it that you can color up a pair of shoes in whatever color you want?!?!? Had to laugh though, because when my daughters saw this - all they could say was, "OUCH! That looks like it hurts!" Heehee - needless to say, their mamma doesn't wear shoes like this! ;)

Here is a close up peak - and I'm super excited that I was able to capture the Wink of Stella I put on the shoe and flower in this photo. It always looks so pretty in real life, but rarely even shows in a picture! I used machine stitching to attach my pattern paper together, and also sprinkled on a few sequins.

Here is the kit that my image and sentiment came from - seriously, SOOO many amazing things you can do with each and every one of these kits! I love when it comes in the mail each month!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today! Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

Welcome Heather...

I am beyond thrilled to introduce our 
amazing guest designer for March.
This lady is so talented and ever so sweet.

My name is Heather, and I blog over at Houses Built of Cards. I have been married for 15 years (our anniversary is the end of March!) to the man of my dreams, and have two sweet daughters age 11 and 10 that I homeschool – which keeps me busier than you would imagine! I was born, raised, and lived in Northwestern Washington State until nearly 3 years ago, at which time we moved to a very small town in Wyoming (located at 7,200 feet above sea level) where we spent 2 ½ years – until late last year when my husband was relocated back to Washington State. It has been good to be back near the majority of our family, but we miss Wyoming and all the wonderful friends we made there very much!
I absolutely LOVE making cards – and also enjoy scrapbooking memories of my family. I jokingly tell my husband that it is cheaper than therapy (although I’m not actually sure if that is true – but I definitely think it is more FUN!) If you aren’t familiar with my blog name, then let me explain a little! When I started card making, I quickly found that I was making WAY more cards than I could possibly use. Thanks in part to my young daughters and something they both cared deeply for, I decided to direct all the proceeds from the sales of my cards to the building of houses for widows and their children in Burundi, Africa, through a ministry called Sister Connection. Building one house is amazingly just $600!!! If you are interested, you can read more about that HERE.

Half of what I love about crafting is the community that surrounds it! Amazing and talented people from all over in the world, brought together by this one hobby we all share. Inspiring each other, and sharing little pieces of ourselves! So excited to guest design with Unity Stamp Company this month – one of my absolute favorite stamp companies! Thanks so much Angela for this fun opportunity!!!
Here are some of Heather's past cards...
be prepared to be INSPIRED.

Simply. Amazing.

Help me welcome Heather 
to the Unity blog by leaving her some love.

We are the lucky ones to enjoy her creations
