Unity Friends Blog Hop—YEAH!!!

I’m SUPER elated for you all to join me during this Unity Friends Blog Hop on a crisp November Sunday morning. This Thursday will be Thanksgiving!  I am very thankful for you all and for the creative drive I receive from using stamped images made with love by the people at Unity Stamp Company.

Below are some projects I made using some of Unity’s Brand NEW releases. I hope they inspire YOU!

For the cards, I used Alyssa Bennett’s charming new releases. The cute little elephant on this card represents the BIG love I would have for the person receiving the card—isn’t that elephant SO cute.  The wordart is equally AMAZING. love youTo give the little elephant some dimension, I created a cut file to use in Silhouette Studio.  Once it was cut, I used pop dots to adhere it to the card and applied glossy accents to the little heart. You can see these effects a little better in the picture below.love you 2Digital Kit Credit:  Maggie Holmes Flea Market Mini Kit available at digitalprojectlife.com.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (believe it or not). I could make Valentine’s Day cards all year round. Candy hearts are a favorite around this house in February and we stock up on them.candy heartsTo give my heart some vintage flare, I inserted a vintage-looking element from Crate Paper’s Fourteen digital kit to the middle of the heart and used pop dots to pop the image from the base of the card. I applied some glossy accents to the candy hearts.  You can see these effects a little better in the picture below.candy hearts 2Digital Kit Credit: Fourteen by Crate Paper available at acdigitals.com.

It’s been a little while since I made a custom tee using an iron-on transfer with my Silhouette Portrait.  This is a project that is both FAST and rewarding. These images were a perfect fit for a toddler t-shirt!  Again, I used some of Alyssa Bennett’s darling new releases.  This little tee is hopefully going to make a little girl I know BEE Happy!  She and her mother are a big fan of bee images and colors.bee happy Digital Kit Credit:  Storyteller by Crate Paper available at acdigitals.com.

Next is a tag I made using the NEW Lasting Thoughts Quote kit. This quote reminds me of an experience I had with my daughter at Science Camp this past week. We all hiked down to Black Sands Beach for some activities and WAVE tag. We had to hike back up from the beach to our next destination when Gwen, all of a sudden, became afraid of heights. REALLY afraid of heights. She refused to go a step farther unless I held her little hand all the way up.  I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to be there to hold her hand and will never forget it as long as I live. 

For the tag, I added coordinating color to the parts of the wordart in Photoshop Elements that I wanted to stand out on the tag. I applied a shadow to the text.  Once it was printed, I applied some Perfect Medium over the top of the words I colored using a Perfect Medium pen, sprinkled some clear embossing powder over the top, and embossed these parts with a heat tool.  I love how this turned out!

The picture below of Gwen petting the horse was the destination we were hiking to after the beach. I think she surely enjoyed meeting the horses and became instantly captivated.IMG_5065 And now . . . something fun and wonderful for YOU! grabbagLEAVE a comment on my BLOG Post and you have a CHANCE to WIN a GRAB BAG of 20 STAMPS from Unity! :)  Winners will be picked and ANNOUNCED on the Unity Blog and FACEBOOK PAGE on Tuesday Morning!

Ann Mcclenaghan said...

Wow! What great cards. They are all incredibly creative - but then I guess that's why you're there huh? (-: The elephant is surely cute with the glossy heart and cute words. The valentine card is my fav I think. I like the vintage piece popped in and the glossy hearts. Very sweet. The little tee will for sure make someone happy. Bee stamps and sentiments are good with anything. The sentiment on the beautifully colored tag is so sweet for thoses situations. It says it all. Love the cutout on it. Lastly , yes your daughter does look pretty content to have reached the destination. Great pic - they grow up SOO fast. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us today.

Camille, fabulous projects! I love the idea of adding images from other sources. I have a cameo, but I don't know how to do a cut from a stamp. I hope you can direct me to a video or a tutorial where I can do that. Thanks for all the inspiration!

Camille Robinson said...

Thanks SO much. You must have a scanner to do this. I stamp the image onto white cardstock and scan it into my computer. Are you familiar with how to make a cut file from an image?

Is the stitching done with a sewing machine, or do you use one of the sewing 'punch' tools and then stitch it by hand?
