Under the Wire...

Unity Stamp set: Love Is

As usual, I am getting a challenge card posted at the very last minute.  Yes, I know...guilty of being a procrastinating crafter.  Oh well!  Better late than never right?

I have been absent from the paper crafting community for quite some time, but thanks to some incredibly encouraging friends, I have found my way back to it...and I have fallen in love with this craft all over again.  Thank you Carmen, Kelly, and Grace for reigniting my joy for paper, markers, stamps, etc... I love you ladies!!!

Since I have rediscovered this craft, I have also found a new love... I have become OBSESSED with Unity Stamps!  I have been wanting to play with my fresh, new batch of red rubbah, but health and time constraints have not been cooperating with my creativity.  Fortunately, I found some time to whip something up for the Unity {be inspired} Challenge.  I chose to create a card with a few of the inspirational colors in their beautiful color palette.  I love the various shades of purple; however, I realized I did not have much in my stash.  Luckily, I was able to scrounge up a few pieces of card stock from my scraps...but that did not leave me much to play with.  So, I went to Lowe's and picked up a few paint swatches...problem resolved. :)  Once I had the swatches, the card came together easily. 

I look forward to the upcoming Unity Challenge and plan to get something done sooner rather than later.  Have a wonderful evening!!  Thanks so much for dropping by. :)

  1. This card is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! I love that you used paint swatches and puffy hearts and shimmer. Of course doilies have a way of finding themselves on a lot of my cards and projects. LOVE LOVE LOVE this card. Thanks for the shout out, it's so nice that we can support and encourage each other.
