Growing in Unity Day #4

Hello, friends!! 


I can't believe that it is already Day #4 for my Growing in Unity week! I don't want it to end! I LOOOOOOOOOVE Unity! Today I'm sharing some of my newest favorite cards!! 


The first two cards were created for the EtsyInspired Challenge. I loooooooove that challenge! How fun is this bag from Sand Box Studios?!! I just love owls! For this card, I used my new What a Hoot! stamp set from Unity! The sentiment is actually raised up on foam in the center. I wanted a "flowing banner look"...I also used that ledger stamp by Unity. I LOVE that stamp! This tag/card [it's no bigger than 3x4 inches] was created for my student, Nick. He did AWESOME this year in Math. I just love the way this tag turned out!
This next card was created using Unity's 6 pack Unity Essentials owl stamp. There are actually three owls on the branch, but I cut one off. I made the image by paper piecing it, and then I stuck 3D foam dots under the DP. I love it! The sentiment is from Unity's May KOTM. Super cute card! I just love the way the owls are looking at you--and then the sentiment says, "Sending you a little happy!" HA!!! Too cute:}
Just a side view--you can kind of see the raised DP and the owls hanging off the edge.


This next card has got to be my FAVORITE! This card was created for the CPS 173 sketch challenge. I just love that typewriter stamp from Unity's Nov. KOTM. I made the paper coming out of the typewriter look 3D by bending it and using foam underneath. I don't know what that is called...but I love it! The hearts [Unity's Love Bug stamp set] were embossed and then cut out. I love how I stamped the sentiment and then used stitching around the edges--but not where the sentiment was...I thought that made the card's details pop! I just love this card! SO FUN!
