Growing In Unity - Tuesday - January 10, 2017




Hello All!!. Welcome to Day Two of my five days as
the Growing in Unity Girl . I am so happy for this chance to showcase some of the amazing stamps and stamp sets created by
Unity Stamp Company located in Minnesota.

In honor of Valentines Day being about a month away I thought I would take today and show you a few stamp sets that can be used for cards pertaining to Love.

For my first card I chose to use "My Person" by Angie Blom and Joslyn Nielson. I think this fox is sooo adorable!.
I used an embossing folder and used around edge of card.
I stamped the image with black ink and the sentiment in red.
I colored in with Prismacolor Pencils and then matted with black paper. Fun card to make!.


For my second card I used Wild About You (Giraffe) By
Joslyn Nielson.  I stamped the giraffe onto white card stock and colored in with Prismacolor pencils. For the background I used a light blue card stock and embossed it with some clouds. 
To finish the card I matted with black card stock and placed on red card stock base. Used the sentiment right on clouds.



For my third card I used "Puppy Ruff" by Tracy Malnofski.
All three of these stamp sets are Itty Bittys.
I used a red card stock for the base of card. I embossed a piece of green for the tree, and placed a light blue behind for background/sky. I proceeded to stamp the dog directly onto it and colored with pencils once again. Its a cute dog with heart.



And my last card for today was one I did at the last minute. 
I decided to do "I Tolerate You" by Lisa Arana.
For this card I stepped a little outside my comfort zone. 
When I used to scrapbook regularly (before stamping) I used to love to paper piece. Paper Piecing is sort of like coloring except each part is a different color of paper - start from the back and work forward.  I think it came out cute.
Stamped main image and sentiment in black onto white card stock.  Then I stamped onto the other colors I needed and pieced it together til I had a finished image. 
It was fun to create!!.





Before closing for today I wanted to include links to the stamps I chose to use for todays Girl In Unity.
Please remember to leave me a comment every day this week for a chance to win a grab bag of 25 stamps.

  1. Good morning, Aimee. These are all really sweet cards. You knocked it out of the park with your last one, with the paper piecing! Great idea and that stamp is perfect for that technique.
