Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers, February 2018, LOVE

Our theme this month is LOVE.  Fitting right, since it is February?!  Valentine's Day is February 14.  So if you haven't gone out to purchase your Valentines, you still have a little time.  For this card I used two SMAK kits from Unity Stamp Co.; January 2017 (progress and change) and December 2014 (moments like these).  This card also features paint splatters, color provided by colored pencils (Faber-Castell) and Distress Ink (Tim Holtz) and a Tim Holtz metal timepiece.





Again thanks for stopping by.  I am the last stop in this hop of LOVE; please make sure you checked out the blogs of the rest of the team.  We really appreciate your support and kind words.

Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers January 2018

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season!  I'm preparing this post before I fly to California.  My sister-in-law has been ill and I'm going to help my brother and niece with her care.  Prayers are greatly appreciated at this time.  She is a phenomenal woman and I hope she recovers soon.  My niece is 16.  She is putting up a brave front, but I know she must be very concerned.  Please include my niece and brother in your prayers.  Thank you.

I combined two Unity sets in the creation of this card.  The theme for this month's blog hop is winter.  The sentiment is from woodland deer and the image is from wild Christmas.  Both sets are rather new to my Unity collection.  I colored the image with Prima water color pencils and the shimmer and shine was provided by Prima metallic accents.  I finished the card off with Prima mini art stones, a few Nuvo drops and ribbon.  This is my first time using the art stones and Nuvo.  I am quite impressed and can't wait to use these on future projects.





Thanks for visiting my blog.  Here is the line up for the blog hop:

Kindness is like snow...

Well helllooooo!  It has been too long since I've blogged.  It's great to be back.  I have been crafting, just not blogging, but that has now changed.  I am so excited to be part of a new group of paper crafters/mixed media artists.  We are the Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers; welcome to our very first installment.

This card was created using a couple of stamps from the October 2017 SMAK Kit, winter wild.  I love the trees and other winter images.  The moose is my favorite in this kit, just saying.








I am the last one in the blog hop, but if you want to revisit the list, here it is:

Card for my Travel Agent

It's been  exactly one month since I've blogged.  Been busy!  My hubby and I went on the best adventure to Italy last month for 9 days. Beautiful!  Amazing!  Surreal! are just a few words to describe our getaway.  We visited 12 cities including Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Verona, and Venice.  To show our appreciation I created this card and envelope for our travel agent. She arranged the perfect trip for us. This was our very first time going overseas. We can't wait to do it again.



Thanks for  visiting!  See you again soon!

Can You Case It #163, A Color Challenge

All good things must come to an end.  This is my last post as a Design Team Member for Can You Case It.  This was my very first design team experience and I loved every second.  I am forever grateful to Eva Bussom for having me and putting up with all my questions in the beginning.  You were so patient with me.  And to the rest of the team, past and present, I am going to miss all of you.  We worked very well together.  I wish nothing but the best for all of you.

Here are the colors for this week's sketch:Image may contain: text
Here is my card:







I was going for the look of bandanas with the two pieces of pattern paper.  The boots and sentiment stamps are from the set, Sassy Boots (Unity Stamp Co.).  Sentiment was stamped in black ink (Stampin' Up).  The boots were colored with colored pencils (Faber-Castell) and markers (Stampin' Up and Tim Holtz).  Silver star is Tim Holtz.  Unfortunately, I cannot remember who made the paper, but the pieces used are from the same sheet (front and back).

Well thanks for looking.  I hope you continue to visit my blog.  Thanks for all the love and support over the past couple of years.

Keep crafting in peace & love,
Dawn

Can You Case It #162, A Sketch Challenge

Welcome back to my blog!  Have I got an adorable card to share today?!  Here is the inspiration:

And here is my card:


Adorable, right??  Told ya!  I just love this owl stamp (Impression Obsession).  I colored him with water colored pencils (Prima).  The sentiment stamp is from the set, sometimes I wonder (Unity Stamp Co.).  Ripped blue pattern paper and paper strip are Webster's Pages.  I believe cork background paper is Simple Stories.  Sentiment was stamped in ink from Stampin' Up and owl was stamped in Ranger ink.

Thanks for visiting!

Until next time,
Dawn
