SMAK Kit at Unity Stamp Co

Hi everyone!
Today is all about Unity's beautiful SMAK kits.....
Ok so I'll admit that working with the SMAK kit can be a bit intimidating for me since I am not a mixed media artist....maybe one day I will venture into this form of paper-crafting but for now I will stick with what I know best - cards, of course. 
BUT the beauty of these SMAK kits is how incredibly versatile they are....use them for mixed media, yes......but also for scrapbooking, project life and yup, even for cards....

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; Unity Stamp Co - Heartfelt Sentiments; Basic Grey Basics; Basic Grey - Out of Print (Storyteller); Stardust Stickles by Ranger; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Watercolor Pencil Crayons; Jenni Bowlin Tab Punch; EK Success Heart Punch; Martha Stewart Classic 3 in 1Butterfly Punch; Prima Marketing Lace; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher; Button - Misc.

This gorgeous butterfly came from the July SMAK kit: 

So if you are already versatile in stamping across all your paper-crafting this is definately the kit for you...OR if you are looking to try something new....there really is something for everyone in these kits....
Check out all the details here on how to become a SMAK kit member.

Hip Hop - As promised.....

When we were doing the blog hop with Paper Issues - my kit had yet to arrive in the mail so I improvised, but I promised that once my kit came I would create something with it and post it....well, here I am - finally posting about it! I am so in love with how this card turned out. I have a small handful of cards I can't seem to part with and I think this one will be added to the stash....

This sweet little kit is perfect for girlie goodness:)  And lucky for you, they still have some of the kits available in Paper Issues Etsy Store.

And of course the awesome Unity Stamp Co Itty Bitty I used:

 I also created this card for the Stamp of the Week post a couple weeks back using the same kit. I think it shows how this kit can also look Masculine....I love when kits are versatile like that.....

The Stamp of the Week I used:
