Good morning! I am so excited to share a SUPER special post with you today! Today is the start of the new Unity Stamp Company March Monthly Challenge - and I am still somewhat speechless to have been invited to hop along with the Unity Design Team this month! Eeek! There are also two new Phyllis Harris stamps that are being released that we got to play with - I always LOVE every stamp that Phyllis Harris releases with Unity - and these are no exception!
You should have arrived here from the amazingly talented Laurel - if not, check out the entire line-up at the bottom of this post so you don't miss a thing! And...without further ado, here is the new challenge inspiration for the month:
I made 3 projects to share today - the first one is using the card sketch and one of the past Stamp of the Week sets called Precious Things and some pattern paper from a couple new Crate Paper 6x6 paper pads - DIY Shop and Maggie Holmes - the tag is from the same Maggie Holmes collection. There is some October Afternoon velvet scallop ribbon, some pretty gold May Arts ribbon, and a bit of jute twine as well. I lightly inked the edges with some distress ink.
Next up - here are the DARLING new Phyllis Harris sets! LOVE them both!
My next card uses the first one of these - I love this image so much - I think it reminds me of my two daughters! I colored it softly with Copics using the color inspiration for the challenge, layered with some pattern paper from Glitz Designs Uncharted Waters 6x6 paper pad, and added a bit of jute twine and a button.
And here is my card using the second set. I also colored it in with Copic makers using the challenge colors as inspiration, then layered on some American Crafts and Basic Grey pattern papers - tying some crinkle ribbon under the image layer. I added the sentiment on top, with a tiny Tim Holtz paper clip.
Thanks so much for stopping by today to share this fun experience with me! Hope to see you again soon! You're next stop on the hop is the ever fabulous Erin - head over there next to see what she has waiting for you!
