Unity Anniversary Challenge Cards!

I created some cards this week for challenges on the Unity forum at SplitCoast Stampers.


The first challenge was to create a bird or tree card using Unity stamps. Well, I have a lot of Unity stamps, but most of them are for journaling or scrapbooking, and shockingly enough, I didn't have ANY birds or trees except for this penguin! He's actually from a winter set, but I made him a beachy penguin! Isn't he cute!?! The paper is My Mind's Eye.


The next card is based on a sketch, and there was a twist to use ribbon and three buttons. Once again, I used My Mind's Eye papers. I love the two flower buttons that I used, and I always love ric rac! I added some rhinestones too.


The last one is also based on an awesome sketch. Since Unity just came out with Cosmo Cricket stamps, I used Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper on my card! I did a lot of sewing. I love the way this turned out!

I hope you're having a great day! Happy Friday! Do you have plans for National Scrapbooking Day? I cannot wait to scrapbook all day long (hopefully!) Have a great day and a fantastic weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Carol, this penguin card is just the cutest! I love the polka dots around the penguin and greeting. Your second card is so lovely in these colors and papers. Your third card is so fun with the stitching surrounding the ruler and other papers!
