Growing in Unity

It's finally here!!!

All this week I will be showcasing Unity Stamps projects on my blog as part of the Growing in Unity project started by Ramsey and Michelle. This was started in October 2008, and we are still going strong with fabulous stampers that want to take their turn to showcase these wonderful stamps.

My first project is a fairly simple layer card using one of Unity's fabulous sentiments as the focal point. Angela loves quotes, and has some great stamps to show for that love. This is one of my favourites.



The sentiment was stamped in versamark on kraft cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. The edges were wiped with a sponge that was lightly dipped in white acrylic paint to give a distressed edge.




I love the pop of colour provided by the buttons. The "thread" is actually a small sliver of kraft cardstock pushed through the button holes. It's a perfect way to finish the buttons in any coordinating colour you need.

As most of you probably know, Angela (the queen of Unity) is extremely generous, and is allowing me to give away a single of my choice on Thursday during Hip Hop. As this is one of my favourite Unity stamps, and one of the first I bought, Be The Change will be the single that is up for grabs this week.

On Thursday during Hip Hop, I will choose one person that has commented on this post to receive the free stamp. Please make sure you don't comment anonymously so that if you win I can contact you.

I hope to see you back here throughout the week as I continue to showcase Unity!
