Growing In Unity - Friday - August 24, 2018

Aimee's Stamping Adventures
Growing In Unity Week

August 24, 2018


Hello Everyone!.
Welcome to my last day as
Growing In Unity Girl :::sniff sniff:::.
This week has gone by too fast,
but I am overjoyed to have had the chance to
share some Unity goodness with you.

Please go check out each day of my blog posts
and comment for a chance to win 
one of two Unity Stamp Company Grab Bags. can NEVER have TOO much Unity (smiling).

For my last day I decided to do a Christmas Blog Day.
With the help of Unity Stamp Company stamps you
are able to create many personalized things for using
during the holiday season.

I made some gift tags to use:

For these I used three of the Unity Stamp Kits and
stamped images onto a large manila tag.
I colored them up using colored pencils.

The kits that I used to make these tags were:

Jolly Ol' Santa
Special Winter Friends
Pain And Pride

The "To" and "From" were in a grab bag I got.


I then decided that I would make a few Christmas Cards
as I needed a starting place for myself anyway since
I make and donate Christmas Cards to military -
I have past few years. 
This year I am also adding a few hospitals -
one military and one children's.
I figured that there will be those in need of some
smiles during the holidays who might be away from
family and friends.

Up first for my cards is the same Santa I used for the
Gift tag from the "Jolly Ol Santa" Kit by Angie Blom.
I colored him with Prismacolor pencils then I
outlined him with gray to make him stand out more
on the white cardstock.
For his beard and hat (white) I used white and a little gray
and kinda of smeared it together. 
I used Glossy Accents on his glasses but it does not show up.

For my second Christmas card I chose to use the 
stamp set called "Scarf In Winter" by 
Tierra Jackson.
I love Giraffes so I had to get this set.
I colored up image and part of sentiment with colored pencils,
and matted onto black cardstock and green base.
I think it came out cute - especially with the 
green and red scarf.

For my final card for today and the week (sniff sniff)
I used the same snowman that I used for the gift tag
from the "Special Winter Friends" stamp set.
I think he's adorable!. I collect snowmen and have a small
curio that I usually fill with them for the Winter season.

Please remember to go back each day and comment on my blog
for a chance to win one of two 
Unity Stamp Company Grab Bags...
can NEVER have enough Unity (smiling).

I hope that you have enjoyed my week as
Growing In Unity Girl and that I inspired you.
I hope you have a great weekend!.
