Growing in Unity - day 5


Hello friends! It's my last day as Growing in Unity girl for Unity Stamp Co. My daughter's favorite board book is What Should we Do with the Boo Hoo Baby so I won't be all boo hoo hoo because truth is this week was so much fun... but I'm not sorry to see it end because it doesn't end!! We have the Unity Facebook page, Pinterest, and Friends with Flair every Friday  for inspiration and camaraderie.  :)

This is kind of going to be a show-and-tell kind of post but with more showing and less telling, 'cause I know you all have more important things to do:

Mini cards; thought these might be a fun thing to tuck in a teacher gift for Christmas:
Jillibean Soup/Unity Jolly Good Fun (left)
Unity's Christmas Bough set (right)
Marvy Urchida markers/gel pens
This stamp is completely underwhelming if you do not emboss it. Know what I also hate am allergic to, besides coloring? Heat embossing, though I did it anyway 'cause I like you guys... Oh, and loose glitter too. Did I tell you my daughter's Halloween costume was sparkly and shed glitter? Guess who is still cleaning up glitter eight days later... I'm not sure what happened with the color here. The green appears much less neon-like in real life.

Then I thought I might try it on the kraft. My sentiment inks did not get fabulous coverage so it's slightly underwhelming. Love this big branch though!!

Thank you for visiting me! Unity will give two Itty Bitty's to a winner from the comments I received this week, so go back to the previous posts and comment if you haven't already done so - better odds are a good thing! And then go shop, cause those new punny stamps are AMAZING. :)

  6. I like the bough idea. I need to simplify my Christmas cards because they take WAY too long to make. And your cards show that simple can be gorgeous!!

  23. I love all of the Christmas cards. I thought that the Christmas tree stamp was probably brighter green than you thought. We are always harder on ourselves. I know that I am! :) Hugs~Patti
