Unity cards....3rd day Growing with Unity

Hello, friends:}


I'm blown away--I love love love all your support! Thanks for visiting me and my little world!! Or should I call it "land" or "country" since my blog title is SAVANNAHLAND...hm... I wish I could Grow with Unity for a MONTH! Speaking of Unity, has anyone ever noticed that I tend to use all Unity/Ippity stamps for my  cards? **NOTE:: I have used Nina Brackett/Squigglefly (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!). On Friday, I will have a total number of cards that I have created using Unity/Ippity  stamps. So if you leave a comment today--try and guess how many you think I've made!! 


My first card was created for the All Things Unity challenge. I love this card--it fits the picture perfectly! I used the bedspread's texture (vertical lines), the texture of the tray (burlap), the color of the teapot, and flowers (which I think the ribbon looks exactly like those flower puffs!). I love love love it! I used Unity's Sept. KOTM cup and sentiment. This card was def. CAS!
Not sure you can see it--but here is a close-up of the vertical lines and texture. 
This second card was created for a friend. She needed a baby card. I used Unity's Could I Be Any Cuter (which is available at Limelight) for the elephant. **NOTE:: The elephant is actually on the inside of the card--the circle goes all the way through! I also used Unity's music background stamp and embossed it on vellum. I like that vellum over bright colors. The scallop on the edge is from Ippity's Sweet Thoughts of Spring. Trav really likes this card too. 
This last card was created using American Craft paper and Unity's butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Beauty set. I also used Unity's Treasure to Me set for the sentiment. I entered this card for a challenge over on the CARDS blog. It was featured back in Feb!! This card was also part of my first publication! It was one of the three cards featured in the Harbor Style magazine {pages 28-29}. All three cards featured Unity stamps! I made this card for a very very special person--she has got to be one of the BEST moms ever--she did a great job raising Trav! LOVE this card! 
Here is a side view of the transparency on top of the DP for the 3D butterfly.
**NOTE:: This also could be entered into Lucy's stitching challenge! 

In the Past:: These three cards are in my TOP 8 favorite cards ever! I love love love them. The first one was created for an EtsyInspired challenge. I love green--and I love how this card turned out with that beautiful metallic paper. That sentiment is from Unity's Feb. KOTM. ACK--love it! I am really into feathers as well! Super cute:}

This next card is another bird card--it uses Unity's Where You Are stamp set (Donna Downey) [also available at Limelight]. The sentiment is from Ippity's Regal Greetings set. Love sentiment sets! I embroidered the bird cage. SOOOOOOO cute! Love it! I love the feather and just everything about it!

This last card was one of my first cards as a DT member for The Play Date Cafe. I love love love this name tag stamp from Unity [Capture Life set]. I have had this design sketched out for about four months! I love it! And the color combo for that week was perfect for a baby boy card. ACK--super cute!

Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for more Unity goodness! I have a couple more cards to share--brand new! Birthday cards! And be sure to guess how many cards you think I have made using Unity/Ippity  stamps. Hint:: I got my first Unity stamp in August 2009--so that doesn't give me much time to create....???


Thanks again for everything. You have made this week GREAT! Can't wait to share the rest of my cards with you! Be blessed:}
Until next time~
Love, Sav
