Bringin' it back with Unity!

Time to start off the New Year with some of my favorite companies! Among many of my New Year's resolutions was to get back in the crafty groove. I seemed to have been zapped creatively lately so I pulled out some of my good ole favorites (with a little help from pintrest) and see what I could come up with. So armed with my binder of Unity Stamp Co. stamps, a selection of My Mind's Eye papers and a color inspiration I went to work. Here is what I came up with for your viewing pleasure.

First I want to show you my color inspiration found on Pintrest. (A serious addition I tell you!)
Color inspiration
 Now isn't that cake just amazingly beautiful? LOVE!

Here is what it inspired.....
Do all things with UNITY love!
 I think this may be one of my new favorite color combos. My Patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye's Stella Rose Collection and its all from the same 12X12 sheet. Front side and back side :) Those fabulous shapes are made with a Martha Stewart boarder punch, a My Favorite Things dienamics die and a Spellbinders die. My pretty purple bling is from Want To Scrap, the banner on the bottom is had cut by me and the fabulous stamps are from none other than Unity Stamp Co. (they are always my go to stamps!).  Oh yes and lets not forget the bow. I made that with my Bow Easy, since I have bought this simple little tool from My Favorite Things online store my bows are ALWAYS beautiful. I will be linking this card to the Unity Facebook Challenge. All you have to do is post a Unity creation using any one of their 228 itty bitty stamps to their FB page for a chance to win 10 of their wonderful stamps on Angela's birthday :) Here is a link to the itty bitty I chose to use today called Hello My Friend.

Now because I'm also on a use up my scraps kick I made another card with my leftovers.

Sympathy's said perfectly with K Andrew's Designs
 Sorry about the lighting in this picture I was struggling for a good pic on this one. I used the same products on this card with the addition of a stamp from K Andrew Design's Sympathy Sayings set. This particular card was more about technique for me. I love the colors of distress inks but I don't always want the distress look. So to achieve my color without the look I first stamped my Unity stamp with versa mark ink then layered my distress ink over it. Then to take the look up one level I heat embossed it with clear powder to add some texture.

I hope you all enjoyed my cards for today.  I hope to craft some more this weekend, lets cross our fingers :)

This is a cool color scheme. I especially like the way you used it in the "Do all things with love" card.
