Bloomin' Beautiful Birthday

I spent most of today and yesterday working on individual pieces for an upcoming craft show, which I am participating in with my mother-in-law and sister-in-laws. When I hopped into bed last Mitch was joking about my evening of "coloring". I guess I was coloring, but when he said that I was thinking, "It's not like I grabbed my son's Crayola Wonder Color markers and started coloring Winnie the Pooh pictures." lol. I think this takes a bit more skill and finesse. Maybe not... ;)

This card happened completely out of the blue. I had stamped and colored several of these floral images and while trying to come up with simple sketches for the show this more complex design jumped into my head. Most of the cards I make to sell are not as developed as many I upload here, unless requested. Too much planning and time to sell for a couple dollars. Most people are not willing to pay for the materials and time that goes into something like this. Crafters and artists know what I mean. ;)

I guess this will be my birthday card to myself!

Thanks for stopping!!

Unity Stamps Tiny Trinity

I always love posting my first card creation using stamps from a company new to me. I joined the Unity Stamps KOM club last month and last week received my first set. The set was HUGE in size and quantity with a FREE set included as an incentive for signing up during the last Hip Hop (blog hop) of the month, which is what I used to create this card.

I did the math for stamps I received and the amount I paid. I think it was under $1 per stamp given my free set. I think this could be a great alternative for those skimming back on stamping $$$. Great quality unmounted red rubber stamps in a whimsical/organic style. I am not much of a scrapper has I have posted before, however, these stamps, given their size and variety in themes are very versatile for cardmakers and scrapbookers alike.

I look forward to seeing what Angela and her company have to offer in the future. The sky is the limit!

Stamps: Tiny Trinity & Beginnings and Endings (both Unity Stamps)
Ink: Palette Noir
Paper: Kraft, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, DCWV The Green Stack
