Growing In Unity - Day 1 AGAIN!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe it!  Either I'm having a harsh case of deja vu, or I'm the Growing in Unity Girl again this week! Woohoo!  A fellow blogger was unable to fulfill the position so this week so I begged volunteered to do it!  I had so much fun creating with Unity Stamps a few months ago, that I just couldn't wait to do it again!!

3D, Glitter, Butterflies, Card

So, once again, here's the drill....I'll be posting projects made with Unity Stamps all week.  Leave a comment on any or all of  those posts to be entered to win not one, but TWO Itty Bitty Stamp Sets from Unity!  The more (Unity) posts you comment on, the more entries you have!  I'll draw and post the winner next Monday, June 23rd.  Good luck!

Today's card is stepping WAY out of the box for me.  I'm usually all about bright colors, but this one is very white and pale...but you know what?  I still love it.  I really need to challenge myself to do more of what DOESN'T come naturally for me.  I'm usually so happy with the results!

Glitter, sparkle, card, butterflies

I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store called Butterfly Pop-Up Card, and cut it out in white cardstock.  I applied a thin coat of Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle in Silver, to the butterflies.  Then I stamped one of the gorgeous images from the Unity Insightful Meadows set on the front of my card in the palest Versa Magic Niagara Mist Ink.  I have to tell you, this is one of my favorite stamp sets of all time!  You can see other cards  and projects I've made with it HERE, HERE, and HERE.  I've used it for lots of other stuff too, but the ones I linked are my faves!  Anyway, below I'll leave a list of products I used for this card.

Glitter, butterfly

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win some Unity love!  Maybe in your comment, you can tell me what YOUR favorite Unity Stamp set is?  No pressure though!

Also, while you're here, I would love to invite you to become a follower or email subscriber, and to follow on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube.  Find your thang and click to like it!

Wow, simply gorgeous. Everything here is so soft, yet really makes an impact.

The 3D effect is great. I also love that you cut out the card as a backing for the butterfly on top. The flowers, so soft and simple, look great.

Amy, this is spectacular!

Janis said...

Very elegant card. Really love the monochromatic look.

I think my fave Unity stamp is one I have that is called Love or something like that. It is a sweet one of a mother bird perched beside her nest of eggs.
