Growing in Unity Day 1



Happy Monday!  I don't think I've ever been so excited for a Monday before but today starts my week as a Growing in Unity gal!

I've been stamping for almost 10 years and Unity stamps and I are a perfect fit. I discovered Unity about 4 1/2 years ago when they were just a brand new company starting out and their great images by talented artistas and quality red rubber have become the staple of my craft room.

I've got a lot of projects to share with you each day this week and you could win some Unity stamps by commenting on each Growing in Unity post this week.  Next Monday I will be picking one winner by random from all of the comments to win 2 Itty Bitty stamps of their choice courtesy of Unity Stamp Co.

I also have a GIVEAWAY and will pick randomly from the comments a winner to receive some great Unity stamps that I have lying around in my pile of doubles (just follow my blog and comment for a chance to win)!

Let's get this party started with a round of cocktails!

 Unity stamps used for this were A Round of Cocktails and Let's Uncork.  I used my Tim Holtz Distress markers to color the stamp.  Colors used: Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Dusty Concord.  The paper is a really old one from my stash by Reminisce called Simply Red.

This stamp set was so much fun I couldn't just stop with one card!  Seriously, true story.  This was my hubby and I almost 15 years ago over drinks with mutual friends at BW3 which is now known as Buffalo Wild Wings.  It's been one great adventure since then!

Supplies used:  Unity's A Round of Cocktails, American Crafts/Amy Tangerine's Yes Please 6x6 paper pack.  Washi from Target.

Stop by tomorrow to see another project (or maybe two) and remember to comment for a chance to win some Unity love!
