Welcome back to Day 4 of my Growing in Unity week! I didn't want to add paper behind the beach scene so it would stand out more. This stamp set is called ...always from the heart by Phyllis Harris. I stamped the sentiment and the beach scene with Gina K Amalgam ink. I colored the beach scene with Marvy ColorIn Watercolor Twist colored pencils. I tried to blend the colors to make the sky look sunset and the water look real. The card base is from DCWV A2 brights Printed Textured Cards. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron 150 Create-A-Sticker Maker to attach it to the card. I used my Teresa Collins Xyron mega runner to attach the beach scene to the card. The purple enamel dots are from my stash. I colored the 2 girls thinking of me and a best friend of mine. We didn't know each other as kids, but are forever friends. I'm the one on the right. I may mail this card to her. That's all I have to share today. Please come back tomorrow to see what I have to share on my last day. Have a great day!

Welcome back to Day 3 of my Growing in Unity week!
I have a few birthdays coming up this summer so I thought I would get a head start. I used July Unity Sentiment Kit 2017 ...hugs, kisses, & birthday wishes by Lisa Arana. I stamped it with Gina K Designs Amalgam ink onto white paper along with the sentiment and the sentiment inside. I colored in the owl and balloons stamped image with Marvy ColorIn Watercolor Twist colored pencils and adhered it down with my Teresa Collins Xyron MegaRunner. The card base is from DCWV A2 Brights Printed Textured Cards. The patterned paper is from Recollections Home Basics 6 x 6 inch Paper Pad that I trimmed down to fit the card. I also used my MegaRunner to attach it to the card. I used my Xyron 150 Create-A-Sticker Maker to attach the Happy Birthday sentiment and the sentiment inside. The enamel dots are from The Stamps of Life.
A picture of the inside sentiment. I will most likely give this card to my sister in July. Her favorite color is pink. That's all I have to share today. Please come back tomorrow to see what I have to share.

Welcome back to Day 2 of my Growing In Unity week!
I made another card. I used Colorbok Bright Brilliant 8.5 x 11 in Smooth Cardstock trimmed down to A2 card size as the card base. The background paper is from American Crafts Sparkleberry Ink Double-Sided Paper Pad that I trimmed down to fit the front of the card and adhered it with Teresa Collins Xyron Mega Runner. I chose Not Be Perfect Itty Bitty by Angie Boom and stamped it with Gina K Designs Amalgam Ink. I colored it in with Marvy ColorIn Watercolor Twist colored pencils and used the Mega Runner again to adhere it to the card. The butterfly button was given to me by a friend in a recent button swap. I glued it down with Tombow Aqua Mono Liquid Glue. The sequins are from a set from Design Creative Bling that's no longer in business. I glued them down with Tombow glue, also. I decided to add the other stamp/sentiment inside as shown below. I used the same Gina K ink and used my Xyron 1.5 Create-A-Sticker maker to adhere it.
That's it for today. Please come back tomorrow to see what I have to share. I will choose 2 winners at the end of the week to win a prize from Unity. Have a great day!

Soul Scrappers SSQ42 aka Soul Scrap Quest. We were sent an envelope full of goodies and I used all, but one item. I may use that on a card or something else! The paper I chose is from 49 and Market Irrevocable Beauty Efflorescent. Everything on the layout was in my envelope except for my markers and adhesives I used. I used Copics and Stampin' Write markers to color in the Stampin' Up stamped image from Beautiful You stamp collection that must have been discontinued because I can't find it on the Stampin' Up website. I used Copic V04 Lilac to color over the Friends chipboard. I used my Teresa Collins Xyron MegaRunner on the picture, doily, pink butterfly paper, and some of the bigger circles. The picture is of me and Lisa- on the right in red- in July 2020 when she came to visit for a week. I used my Xyron 150 Create-A-Sticker on the butterflies, the smallest circle, and the polka dot strip. I used Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue on the Friends chipboard, the pearls, and the pink burlap square. The best sticker I fussy cut out of another sticker from Carta Bella Hello Again Collection Kit. I bought the 49 and Market and Carta Bella kits from Tuesday Morning at a cheaper price than you will find them online. This is the first layout I have done in awhile and placed everything where I wanted it before I glued it all down. The pearls were a last minute add on. Have a good week! TFL!
