Growing In Unity~Day 4

 Thanks for coming back for Day 4 of my week as Growing in Unity gal!

Today is a two-fer day! I've got two little Unity projects that I've been just itching to share with you. Let's get started!


The sentiment is from Unity's {my thoughts are with you} kit. Definitely a must-have! It is loaded with a great variety of "thinking of you" types of sentiments that are perfect for cardmakers. I love how this one in particular fits perfectly in my Stampin' Up! modern label punch.

The patterned paper is a digital print from the Beautiful Moments collection by Carta Bella (available from JessicaSprague.com).  I built the gilt frame around the portion I printed out using some really cool gold washi tape. It totally looks like a fancy picture frame, right? I think the effect is awesome.

Now, switching gears a bit.


This card pulls together two different Unity Stamp kits. The doily stamped in the background in white on kraft and the fancy label are from the Generations kit, and the fantastic "You are fabulous" sentiment is from the Where You Should Be kit. Quick and easy and perfect for dropping in the mail to a fabulous friend!

And I think that does it for today!

Will you elaborate on how you made the frame? Did you print on the washi? Was it a sheet of washi? Inquiring minds wanna know....

Your work never ceases to amaze me, Emily! I love the gorgeous rose and frame. I had to go back and really look at it...that washi tape is so perfect.

And the sweet little doilies are so dainty for a background for your second card. I like the colour combination. More of your perfect stitching. You must do a lot of sewing!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Wow! Knocking my socks off, you are. That hand-built washi tape frame is simply amazing. That card looks like a mini canvas.

The second card is beautiful, too, and I wish I could stitch on a card as perfectly as you!
