Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers, November 2019, Giving Thanks

Hello there! I can't believe Thanksgiving is in a few weeks! As I get older, the years go by so much faster. Do you agree? I am thrilled you are here hopping with us. I am so excited to see the new Ang. Mag. Uniquely Unity membership stamps. Who's with me? By the time you read this, they will have been revealed. I'm sure they are AMAZING!

Here is our cue for the month of November:

For both of my cards I really went for the sparkle and shine. I mean, what's fall without some sparkle, right?  Here is my first card:



Two kits were used in the creation of this card, barn wall (Brutus Monroe) and Autumn Dream (Graciellie Design). First I stamped barn wall onto kraft cardstock. I then stamped the flower images. The sentiment was stamped last. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to water color the flowers. I don't believe I've ever water colored on kraft before. I definitely like the muted look of it. And for the finishing touch, paint splatters with Unicorn Hair by Prima Marketing Inc.

Here is the second card:




So for this card I stamped the tree on water color paper and cut it out with a wonky line die by Gina Marie. I used a brush to add the various Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I then added paint splatters with more Prima paints, Fairy Wings and Unicorn Hair. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using a stitched die by Gina Marie. I placed this over a fall sticker using dimensional tape. The tree is from the September 2018 KOM called Blessed Fall. The sentiment is from Autumn Dream (Graciellie Design).

Next up in the hop is the lovely Robyn Jordan. She is the last stop.

I apologize for how dark the pictures are. I took these pictures at night, so I did not have the best lighting. I will post better pictures on Facebook. Thanks for joining us once again for our monthly blog hop. We really do appreciate your support. Make sure you come back the first Saturday in December. Huge prizes! You are going to flip!

Until next time,
Dawn
