GIU Day 1 - Cheers To New Beginnings

Hello everyone!! Welcome to Day 1 of my Growing in Unity week. I'm so excited to be the Growing In Unity girl this week. This week, Monday through Friday, I will be sharing my cards that I have made with Unity Stamps.

Here's what I've made for Day 1:


I inked a piece of white cardstock of size 4.125" x 5.375" with Distress Inks Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers and Broken China. I blended all 4 colors until I was satisfied with the results. Then, I stamped the butterflies and the sentiment "Cheers to new beginnings" from the Unity Stamps - You Can & You Will stamp set with VersaMark ink and embossed with Hero Arts Gold powder. I love how the gold looks against the background. Then, I adhered this panel on to a top folding A2 card base, leaving a 1/8" margin around the edges.

How do you like this card? Let me know in the comments. Unity Stamps has generously offered a prize of a grab bag of 25 random stamps to 2 people who comment on my GIU posts. You have until Sunday night to comment on all my GIU posts. I will pick a winner on Monday.

I highly recommend you to check out my GIU partner - Crystal O. Minkler's blog. She's very talented and I'm sure she has a wonderful project to inspire us today.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please do visit me tomorrow to see a new project with Unity Stamps. Hope you have a great day.
