Simple Blessings featuring UNITY STAMP CO.


Hello and welcome!
Hooray it's Friday and I just left our churches cooking crew at the Mad River Grange to be able to post this real quick-like! We are preparing our free to the community Thanksgiving Dinner. 8 turkeys, 67 pounds of roast beef, 80 pounds of pototoes and stuffing to feed at least 200 plus desserts and all the side dishes like cranberries, salad, rolls etc.! All is cooking, so now it's just a waiting game until 3:30 then it will be a major rush to have everything done by 5:30 to serve!

Here is another card I finished using this wonderful set called Simple Blessings for Unity Stamp Co. our terrific sponsor this month over at Christian Paper Crafts! I just love how easy this stamp was for embossing and this was such a "simple" card to make!

The finished card (CPC-UnityNov09)

Here is the recipe: Stamps: Simple Blessing set from Unity; Paper: Bazzill and Paper Accents, cardstock. (I made my own pattern using the same stamp I embossed with, I loaded the stamp alternating the color of ink, first stamping on scratch paper then stamped the lighter image on the cardstock.) Inks: Archival Ink (Ranger) Russett and olive; Clear Embossing Powder from Ranger,; Ribbon, American Crafts, button & raffia from my stash!

Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy the clean and simple look of the card! Thanks again to Angela and Unity Stamp Company for the opportunity to have some fun with their incredible stamps!

Back to the Grange....



  1. Hi Natalie! Beautiful card indeed! LOVE your embossed leaves (those are the prettiest ones I've seen!) and your whole sketch just works! :) I just saw the comment you left my friend Helen's blog -- how sweet of you!
