Growing in Unity [Day 4]

May 02, 2013

It's Day 4 and my week of being the GIU girl is almost over! I must say that I AM really growing in Unity. Ever since I bought my first stamps from Unity in 2009 I have really changed the way I scrap and create.

Today I have an interesting project. I made this as a birthday gift!

I used an Ikea frame - painted it with some gesso and embellished it with Pink Paislee's Vintage Vogue collection. 

And with every gift, there must be a card right? :) The card is also using the same collection. 

I made the chalkboard effect with some white ink on black. The stamp is so pretty by itself don't you think?

My next card is for the girly girls.

You can never go wrong with pretty Prima flowers & butterflies. :) I added some liquid pearls to the center of each flower and some twine to give some added texture. I also created a Stickles border to add some bling.

And... Here's my final card of the week! 
{Hint: Tomorrow I have an art journal to show!}

I created the marbleized background with some Tim Holtz distress paints. I stitched the border of the card with some embroidery thread and inked up the gorgeous butterfly tree with some Dusty Concord.

Do drop by tomorrow for a special art journal blog hop and more giveaways!!
