Growing in Unity Day 5 ~ Spark

Hi there and Welcome to Day 5! I have really enjoyed sharing my CAS creations with you all this week and I have truly appreciated all the wonderful comments that you have written me...Yesterday I wrote that about making a fun New Year gift and with one of Unity's newest kits...
Spark by Graciellie Design...when I saw this kit I knew it would be perfect for a New Year Gift...


With a new year comes changes ( good and bad sometimes too) and new beginnings...when I saw the caterpillar and butterfly in this kit and the beautiful sentiments in this kit this is what I ended up making for a friend of mine...she has had a rough school year so far and I am hoping with the new year things will get better for her...the two sentiments I have chosen for this project I feel will remind her that no matter what happens tomorrow is a new day...

For the background I used watercolor paper that I buy from Michael's and black StazOn to stamp the caterpillar, butterfly, and sentiment and once again I used my aqua painter to paint the caterpillar and buttefly...I adhered the calendar using double sided tape...for the butterfly, two of the leaves, and the branch I stamped on the paper and then stamped again on another piece of water color paper and then "fussy cut" them and then used puffy dots to adhere them onto the paper...

 Once again I did the same thing here like I did with the branch and some of the leaves on the background of the calendar..

I stamped the inside of the card with StazOn...

I really liked how it all turned you call can tell I am definitely a CAS kind of gal when it comes to my friends often tell me that they are "Simply Sweet"

Make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win 25 stamps from Unity...please check back tomorrow to see who won...I will make a blog post to announce the winner

Day 4 Growing in Unity ~ Holiday Cheers

Hi there and Welcome back to Day 4! As promised I have another fun holiday gift that would make a fun hostess gift for that holiday party you are going to! I used this set...Cheers by  Tierra Jackson

When I saw this set I knew I needed to add it to my wine stamp collection...
Here is what I came up with

For the wine tag I used watercolor paper and my aqua pens to color it in...I used Stazon Black doesn't run or smear when you used watercolors...

I also used Stazon since it doesn't run either!

I have several CD tin boxes that fit my coasters perfectly...great use for a hostess gift idea!

Here it is all together...
