Growing in Unity Day 2

Good morning! Today is the 2nd day of my week of Growing in Unity for Unity Stamp Company! In case you don't know how it works, make sure and leave a comment everyday for a chance to win 2 Unity Itty Bitty stamps of your choice at the end of the week. I will draw a winner from comments left throughout the entire week. 

Now...onto the projects! I decided it would be fun to take some of the fun Sassy Sentiments by Erin Schreiner and focus on those for the week! I will be using one sentiment two different ways for each day of this week, paired up with die cuts or other Unity stamp images. One more classy or vintage inspired, and one more CAS, retro, or modern. Something like that anyway! So, for today I chose the sentiment "SHINE BRIGHT like a diamond" from the set called Sassy Pants. Here is the first card I made with it:


I went bold and strong for this one by cutting the city skyline out of black paper with a MFT Die-namics Die. I layered it on some MME paper, and spritzed it well with Gold glimmer mist, and then heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom with Gold Zing embossing powder.


Added some black sheer ribbon, a stick pin, and a bunch of Studio Calico wood veneer stars.


The next one is all soft and pretty and girlie: 


I started off by embossing a piece of vellum with my Cuttlebug, adhering it to some Avery Elle Cardstock, and then spritzing with some Silver glimmer mist. I made the edges curl up a little, but I love the pretty effect it gave!


Once that dried, I added my sentiment stamped on a hand trimmed banner, some more wood veneer, and a few sequins to finish it off.


That's it for today! I'll see you again tomorrow for two more cards using another sentiment! Have a great day!!!
