It’s Wednesday and time to meet our Growing in Unity gal for this week – Emily Leiphart.
I’m delighted to be the Growing in Unity Gal this week! I had such a wonderful time as a Guest Designer for Unity in December and January that I just had to come back and share more cards inspired by Unity’s beautiful stamps! I love using Unity to create because the stamps are high-quality, the images are large enough to fill a card and I’m inspired just by looking at them. If I need to create a card in a flash, the first thing I reach for is my little package of printouts of all the Unity stamps I own. I flip through the images looking for ones that might complement each other and then choose a sentiment or several sentiments to combine. It’s pretty simple! Ippity Design Team member Lisa Arana and I have also teamed up for Take Two this week. We are featuring one Unity or Ippity set each day all week long and we’d love for you to stop by both our blogs each day to see our different takes on the same stamp set! Not only will I be giving away the Growing in Unity prize at the end of the week, Angela Magnuson has generously donated one of each of the stamp sets Lisa and I are showcasing!! Lisa is also giving away two of her amazing watermarks which I absolutely love and use myself. Please stop by my blog and Lisa’s blog every day this week for a chance to win one of eight incredible prizes and be inspired by Unity! For Take Two today, Lisa and I are featuring Birdie Duet and here’s one of my cards using this set. The main image and one of the two sentiments offered in this set are the focus of this card. In the background, I stamped the clouds background from Take Time To Laugh and further back behind the espresso layer, I used the butterflies from Picture Perfect on both the yellow (sun) and green (grass) strips. You can find the complete source list on my blog as well as a second card using Birdie Duet but in a completely different style. Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
