Unity Challenge...I DO! Plus the Stamp of the Week!


Hi everyone!
It's challenge time at Unity Stamp Co!! Since July was my month for the challenge and we are right in the middle of summer, I figured why not focus on something many of us probably already have to create projects for - weddings!! Be sure to check out all the details on the challenge here.

This first card was so fun and easy to put together.....The birds in the paper and the birds on the caaauuute!!!
And I love doing "girly" projects....I rarely seem to get to do them in scrapbooking so I have to make up for it in my cards....and weddings and "girly" work together like a charm:)

A close up on the stamp...the background text is from the song "going the the chapel and we're going to get married....."
Supplies Used: Basic Grey Kissing Booth - Oh Darling & Better Half ; Doodlebug Petite Prints - Bumblebee; My Minds Eye Quite Contrary; Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black; Divine Twine - Lemon; Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Circles & Lacey Circles; EK Success Heart Punch; Button & Lace - Misc

Unity Stamps Used: 

Happily Ever After - 07/10 KOM (no longer available - sorry peeps)

For this next card I wanted to create something a little bit more "non-traditional" for weddings - I wanted to use "love" themed stamps and create a wedding card out of it.
I am very happy with how this turned out!

Look at how perfectly this paper co-ordinates with the stamp - yikes!! Crazy when that happens!! I found the MME Six by Six at Winners (Yes - Winners! of all places). When I went to create this card I had both the stamp set and the pad sitting on my desk - just waiting for me to realize how perfect they were for each other!! I honestly didn't plan it this way...

I added a sweet little sentiment inside to help bring it together as a real wedding card:
Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; My Mind's Eye Six by Six - Honey Cake; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Fired Brick; Jenni Bowlin Ink - Brown Sugar; Maya Road Heart Trinket Pin; Heart Punch - EK Success; Ribbon - Stampin' Up; Lace & Photo Corners - Misc.

Unity Stamps Used:

Happily Ever After - 07/10 KOM (no longer available - sorry peeps)

I've been way overdue for a video, so on the fly I decided to film myself creating this card. 
Check out this "paper clipping" - watch me work through my creative process and make this sweet wedding card from start to finish:

This next project I did awhile ago.
I knew (before Angela at Unity Stamp Co even posted that she was looking for new design team members) that I would apply to work for this company as soon as an opportunity presented itself. When it did, I wanted to make something really special using Unity Stamps. I have made tons of cards, and even though I love making them I wanted to showcase my talents and abilities differently. I had a vision of a beautiful, mostly white banner with a little color.....all the pattern and color coming from stamps, of course. And I am happy to say that I achieved the vision in my head. This is the banner I made to submit for the Unity Stamp Co Design Team call. I think it would be a perfect decor item at a wedding, hung on the front of the head table...or on the wall behind the newly married couple.

All my flowers were white too, so to add a bit of color and interest to them I also stamped on some of them.

I added lots of pearl buttons and beautiful lace trim to make the banner feel very "wedding" like.

Supplies Used: Bazzill cardstock; Jenni Bowlin Ink - Speckled Egg; Petaloo Flowers; Kaisercraft Pearls; Maya Road Trinket Pins; Ranger Stickles - Stardust; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass; Divine Twine - Aqua; Storybook, George & Basic Shapes,  & Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridges; Lace, trims, tulle, paper doilies, sequens, & buttons - Misc.

And just think you could get one just like it in the mail simply by signing up here.
A new stamp and sentiment = happy mail!!!

I loved creating my card around this fantastic stapler and sentiment....just too sweet!!
I really love how it all came together...

Of course I had to include staples as an embelly....

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; My Mind's Eye Six by Six - Blink of an Eye; Whisker Graphics Little Bitty Bag - Gray Grid; Three Hearts Punch - EK Success/Stampin' Up; October Afternoon Sasparilla Buttons; Copics - C00, C1, C3, B000, B0000; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher; Photo Corners - Misc.
