Cards, Unity Stamp Co

New Adventure

Hi Angels!

Popping by with a quick card tonight. It certainly didn’t take as long as last night.

I am usually woefully short of cards for guys. This card is great because it’s more neutral and I can use it for anyone going on an adventure, for a birthday or more. As short of guy cards as I may be, I usually am also short on cards that I can use for anyone at a moments notice. It’s always a good idea to have a variety of cards on hand.

The background is sprayed Distress Oxides from my background stash. I had pre-stamped several images last time I worked on guy cards. This one is from Unity Stamp Co. All Cylinders set. It’s probably a bit harder to see but I used the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder from Stampin Up! on the background. The sentiment if from an old FSJ set.

I hope you have a terrific week!

Thanks for stopping by.

All Things Are Pawssible

Hi Angels!

I hope you have had a relaxing weekend.

I made a quick card tonight with the new Unity Stamp Co Love Kitties stamp set and paper pad by Graciellie Design. These kitties are so cute!

The play on words on this card are a great reminder that “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

Last week was a bit rough. Keep God first, love others, be the light and remember God is in control.

Since the paper is so beautiful, I opted to leave my image mostly black & white with a pop of accent color. If you haven’t tried Unity’s pattern paper it is a wonderful heavyweight high quality paper.

This card took about 15 minutes start to finish. A card doesn’t always have to be elaborate or over the top to be a great card. Clean & simple is one of my favorite designs to work in.

Enjoy your week. Find some time to share some joy and enjoy a bit of creating.

2021 Floral Calendar Mar/Apr

Hi Angels!

I’m still working on my timing but I got a lot done today.

Today I am sharing the March & April calendar pages. It’s been a bit tricky trying to photograph the pages with the silver & gold embossing I used so I’ve been trying different things & pick the best.

March features the beautiful flowers from Sweet n’ Sassy Stamps In This Together stamp set. I really love the little teapot and there’s also a teacup in the set.

For April I used Unity Stamp Co. You Have Made a Difference set. When I was looking at images of dogwood flowers on line, I saw this really interesting almost blood red flower. I like different so I picked out some deep coral watercolor paint for my flowers with a touch of gold in the shading. The wonderful thing about art is being able to do things that are different.

I usually pick out sentiments for my calendar pages but decided I just wanted the beauty of the flowers this year.

Thanks for popping in.

November Calendar

Hi Angels!

Nothing like finishing up my final calendar page half way through the month. It’s been on my things to do list for about 2 months, but since it’s for me, I push it to the bottom of my project list. Thankfully December was done earlier this year. Now I get to start designing next year’s calendar.

I used Unity Stamp Co. Planner Gal: All Little Things set for this page. The camera didn’t pick it up very well but I have been working on getting better on different skin tones. She’s not as peachy as she looks. It will take lots of practice & maybe a class or two to get better. Stretching your wings & art skills takes practice & determination.

I’ll see what tomorrow brings for posting. Princess Nora will be here and I am sure she will keep Grammy quite busy. Perhaps we can work on an art project together.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Hope of Christmas

Hi Angels!

It’s definitely been an emotional week all the way around.

When I heard Matthew West’s new release The Hope of Christmas, it was an absolutely perfect reminder of where my hope lies.

I created this Bible journaling page as the official first entry in my new Interleaved Bible.

I used Unity Stamp Company’s Lying in a Manger stamp set, Distress Inks, colored pencil & Stickles to complete this page. I hand lettered the chorus of the song. I place the layout opposite of Luke 2, the birth of Jesus.

Take some time to rest & reflect on where your hope lies. Then reach out & bring hope & love to those around you.

Have an Awesome Week!

September Calendar Page

Hi Angels!

Can you believe it’s September already? I’m not ready for fall & usually in Oklahoma it won’t start to show up for about another month. However given as strange a year as it’s been well……

I got my September calendar page colored & displayed. I used Unity Stamp Company’s Go Get It Girl set for this month. As a redhead in long sleeves she looks like she’s ready for fall.

Speaking of calendars, I’d better get prepped to design the 2021 calendar class. The Angels have been making them for I think 6 years now.

Looking forward to a little fun this month. Our spring retreat got cancelled so we are set for our fall retreat in just 2 weeks and will be gone for about 6 days. Yay! But first some troop card processing tomorrow & a class I’d better get designed for next Monday.

Thanks for popping by!
