Growing In Unity Blog Hop

One of the fun things about spending a week being the Growing in Unity Girl, is the fun blog hop that comes along later! All of the Unity Gals from May and June have all joined together today to show off Unity Stamp Co’s newest Stamp Of the Week, Pumpkin Greetings.



I started my card by using one of my favorite things, Elizabeth Crafts Glitter Ritz.  It’s a transparent glitter (although it comes in colors too) that you can stamp and color on without covering up the sparkle!  I did a tutorial a while back on how to use it that you can find right HERE.  Once my white cardstock was covered in glitter, I used the adorable Unity Pumpkin Greetings stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp my image.  Next, I used my Bic Mark-Its to color my image.  Any alcohol markers will work, but since I’m all about saving money, I love my inexpensive Bics!


Once my image was finished, I decided to fussy-cut some cute little leaves from a remnant of scrapbook paper I had in my stash.  I randomly “sprinkled” the leaves onto my image and then glued them down with Zip Dry adhesive.  I mounted my image on two different patterned cardstock sheets and then finished it off with some natural jute.




Here’s a list of the supplies I’ve used for this project:
Elizabeth Craft Designs Microfine Glitter


Scor-Pal Tape, 2.5 by 27-Yard


White Cardstock


Memento Ink, Tuxedo Black


Advanced Tape Glider


Zip Dry Glue


BIC Mark-Its 36 Markers
