Unity Inspiration Challenge Hop

 Good evening!!! Welcome to our second time hopping on Tuesday nights with Unity Stamps tonight we are celebrating the new {be inspired} Challenge - and the new sentiment kit! I made this set of note cards using the sketch - I also have a video showing how to get the perfectly placed bow I have on these cards!


Here is the video - I happened upon this idea when I was wanting to put a bow on the wreath, but didn't want to just glue a bow on, or wrap around the entire front panel. I love how well it worked - and super easy! Let me know what you think! :)


Here is a close up of the different sentiments in this kit - I used 4 of the 5 that are included in the kit:








Here is the new kit - called Everything Comes Full Turn - I'm loving all the possibilities on this one! How fun to add a Christmas sentiment with this one!


It's hard to see in the photos, but I attached the vellum layer to the doily by adding a line of machine stitching around the entire outer edges of the wreath. Vellum can be tricky to attach, and this worked perfectly! The bonus was I could then apply my foam adhesive to the back of the doily to attach it to the card front!


I used Lawn Fawn pattern paper for all my cards, Lil' Inker's Rounded Stitched Rectangles to die cut my vellum panels, and added a little Copic coloring over the sentiment just to help them pop a little. Finished off with a few sparkly clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!


Make sure and check out this weeks new releases and sales - prices are FALLING at Unity! :)


There is also a fun prize pack for comments left along the hop!


Here is the rest of the links for the Design Team - make sure and visit everyone to see the new stamps in action - and leave some love for a chance to win this weeks giveaway!
