Happy 2nd Birthday Unity Stamp Co.

I've had fun the last couple of days checking out the Unity Stamp Company's 2nd birthday celebration! I've completed a couple of their challenges that I'll post here now and then I'll get them in the gallery at SCS later in the day. This first card "Thinking of You" (Sending my Love stamp set) is day four challenge "TRIPLE TAKE" (USCAC4) be sure and check out their blog to get the details! I finally stitched a card for the very first time! Not too happy with the way it turned out, I need to adjust the tension (or something!!) but it is what it is!! It is also our FUN ON FRIDAY (CPC FOF51)challenge at CHRISTIAN PAPER CRAFTS, where Cindy has issued our challenge to have something to do with sewing!! I've used DCWV pattern paper (Cafe Mediterranean stack) and Paper Accents cardstock. The cute crochet flower is from American Crafts and the bling is from BoBunny. The ribbon is from a Michaels sale! I've used Label One Nestabilities and EK Success corner rounder (inside of card). The inks were black Palette and Antique Linen Distress ink.

My second card is actually 3 challenges! The sketch is from my pal Gloria at Christian Paper Crafts (CPC ST54) and this weeks color challenge was to use orange in celebrating Jen (aka Miss Boo's birthday) CPC-CM54 and the third challenge is from the Unity celebration to use a bird or a tree (USCAC2). So I used an owl from "Owl Always Love You" set. I colored the owl with Copics E37, E33 and E00. The paper is Basic Grey "Sugar Rush" which is double sided. Ribbon is from American Crafts, the brad is from Sassafras, and the button from Foof a La bag o'buttons. Ink : Palette, black. Cardstock is Bazzill.


Inside of the card: I used the smaller owl in the set on cardstock with black ink, Palette and Label One Nestabilities. I used the double-sided Basic Grey paper to finish off the inside.

I'm working on a couple more challenges and I plan to post them later on today or possibly tomorrow. Have a fantastic day and Happy Birthday to Unity Stamp Co.!
