If you are hopping along with the Growing In Unity Blog Hop then you are in the right place. If you are coming in at the middle of the hop you can start here: Unity Stamp Blog. I was lucky enough to get a GIU spot over the summer and it was so much fun to blog my Unity creations for a week and now I get to hop along with the other talented GIU girls, super fun!
We are showcasing the newest Stamp of the Week by Unity Stamp Co, a super deal at just $5.79/week you get a great new stamp in your mailbox every week!
I was so happy to see the little package in my mailbox and ripped it open ASAP to see what the newest stamp was and what a beauty it is! It is called Winter Forest and was created by the talented Joslyn Nielson (I just love her stamp designs).
I didn't get a chance to get crafty with it as soon as I would've liked and then one of my little ones came down with a nasty cough that turned out to be croup so I've had my hands full disinfecting the house and trying to keep everyone happy and healthy. I was afraid that I wouldn't get anything made for the hop! Thankfully I was able to get a little time right before the post was supposed to go live to play and here is what I came up with.
I embossed the image on kraft paper with black embossing powder, colored it in with some sparkly, pearlescent watercolors from US Art Quest, cut it out and popped it up on another kraft panel where I also black embossed the winter wishes sentiment. It looked kinda plain so I tried to doodle around the edge (does anyone else doodle with a pencil first or is that just an OCD tendency of mine?), and I mounted it onto a dark blue cardstock that reminded me of a night sky.
Next up on the hop is the talented Angela, you can see what she created here at angelascraftyspot.BlogSpot.com.
Thanks for hopping with us today! One lucky commenter in the hop will win a week of Stamp of the Week, how awesome is that!?!
I also have a personal giveaway going on right now. You can check out this post here, Happy Birthday, for details!
