Unity Blog Hop 05.29.14!

Finally--next week is the last week of school--Yippee!!

How many projects did you help your children complete during the merry month of May?

How many school functions, field trips, open houses, orientations, parades, etc., have you attended?

By the time May is over, I’m ready for school to be over, too.

Today, I’m sharing the fabulousness of Unity on some cards and a TAG!  First up is a card using a new ANGIEgirl released last week--Harmony Girl!

Harmony card

She is glorious, stunning, and sophisticated! The sentiment is matched to perfection. Harmony is cool!

For the background of the card, I used a canvas texture with the paint tube and palette knife in Art Rage 4.  To color Harmony, I used the watercolor brush tool.  The card is a design I purchased through the Silhouette America Online store and includes the base of the card and the top shape of the card. Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress inks were applied to the sides of the top layer of the card which was attached to the base of the card with 3D mounting foam.  Harmony was fussy cut using my Silhouette and was adhered to the top of the card using 3D Zots.

Now onto the tag . . . my Harmony tag!

Harmony tag

I just couldn’t help it—I had to play with her again!  This time my canvas of choice was a chipboard tag.

For the background of the tag, I used a watercolor paper texture with the paint tube and palette knife in Art Rage 4.  Again, to color Harmony, I used the watercolor brush tool. The tag is by Tim Holtz/Sizzix but was cut with my Silhouette (I just like to do that). Pumice Stone, Mustard Seed, and Black Soot Distress inks were applied to the sides of the tag.  Harmony’s umbrella was fussy cut using my Silhouette and was adhered to the tag using 3D Zots. Jute was tied to the tag.

Cards, CARDS! Two more cards! This time using May’s Sentiment Kit, Basically Said, with Project Life cards (Maggie Holmes Styleboard) to make CARDS!

thank you

May’s sentiment kit contains 21 stamps and is a kit you want in your card-making arsenal. I guarantee you will USE this kit for your card-making needs! If you have Project Life cards, and I’m sure quite a few of you do, use the sentiment kit to STAMP sentiments on them, adhere them to a card base, and brighten someone’s day.  This comes together quickly and easily.

Below is my latest video to date which is a tour of my craft space which happens to be my laundry room.  Sometimes it looks nice, like in the video and is a craft haven where I love to create, and at other times, it looks like a laundry room or a study hall for my children.

THANK YOU to all who have subscribed, liked, or commented. Your support means the world to me and encourages me to make more video tutorials.
