Christmas In July - Impression Obsession

Hello. 

Welcome to my page and entry in the "Christmas in July" by Impression Obsession.
For this entry I used the new "Baby Giraffe" - WP771 - stamp set.
I created an a2 sized card using a red cardstock for the main color.
 I decided that since it was a Christmas challenge I would make green stripes for background.

To make more Christmasy I added the scarf included in the kit and alternated colors.

The entire giraffe image was paper pieced by me. Definitely a labor of love.
For some reason this helps with my anxiety attacks and I love doing.
Sentiment used was included in kit. I love giraffes!!.
I thought the sentiment "You Have A Special Place In My Heart" fit for using for Christmas 
as many in my life - friends and family whom receive cards from me have a very special place in my heart.

I hope you enjoy my card.

Unity Stamp Company Blog Hop April 9, 2017




    Unity Stamp Company Blog Hop -- April 9, 2017

      Hello all....its Blog Hopping Time - Yeah!!. I put on my Easter Bunny Ears and tail and I am ready to hop....lol. 

      I love Unity Stamp Company stamps because they carry stamps for everyone. Whether you want cute, beautiful, funny, manly or even birthdays Unity has something for you in their vast array of stamps.


     I have made a few cards in hopes to inspire creativity. Here is the first one. I love Sloth Endearment stamp set. I had watched a cute program on Animal Planet about Sloths. When I saw this set I had to get. I also used Line Of Vines stamp set for background.










Since Easter is just around the
corner I decided to do a few
quick Easter cards. Stamped rabbit and cut out 
using pop up dots for depth.
This kit is called "Bunny Keep You Forever ".








And my next card I decided to keep it
simple and clean. I took wings and bent a little
to make look a little more realistic. 
This stamp set is called "Monarch Journey".




And my last card for Blog Hop is a stamp set called 
"Strange Bird".  I used clouds from 
"Sending up something beautiful" kit.
P.s. I am definitely weird (smiling).



===================================================

My last two cards I made I used stamps from the 
"After Dark" section of Unity Stamp Company.
If you do not want to see what was created then stop here, 
leave a comment and hop on to the next pretty lady.

For my first "After Dark" card I made a card that will
be sent to my daughter Bridget.
My daughter was recently married and of
course I had to use "Ah Crap" Stamp Set.
I used an embossing folder for my "wallpaper".
I used sentiment for "picture" on wall and 
other sentiment for the "rug"...with fringe.




I thought it would be fun to do a Birthday card.
I hope not to offend anyone...that is not me.
This is a fun stamp set to use.
This set is called "Just Stinkin' Cute".




I hope you enjoyed all the cards I created using Unity Stamp Company Stamps.

Growing In Unity - Day 5 -- Frowning - January 13, 2017


Hello everyone!. I'm back. I truly wish I was just starting my Growing In Unity Week instead of ending it. I always hate to look forward to doing something for awhile only to have the time go by so fast. 

I hope that you have enjoyed all that I have created and that I have inspired you in some way. Remember that we all create beautiful projects with Unity Stamps. Whether its a card, canvas or even wrapping paper...its all unique with Unity Stamps. I truly believe that if a few of us got together and had the same kit and supplies that we would create all completely different projects.  To me there is nothing more special to receive then something homemade. Receiving something homemade is usually made directly from the heart. Its a sorta of extension of yourself. Never be afraid to express yourself.

One of my favorite artists here at Unity Stamp Company is Lisa Arana. Lisa has some awesome stamps and I totally love her owls. Today I thought I would showcase some of them.




To start off my owl cards I wanted to start with "Lil Bloomin' Owl".
This owl makes me smile as it reminds me of being in South Dakota with Paul for vacation (aka Sturgis 75th) and while on the motorcycle saw field after field of sunflowers. 
I thought it was very cool to see that when the sun was out all the sunflowers in fact turned toward the light.



I used a floral embossing folder for the base of my card.
I stamped the "Lil Bloomin' Owl" and the sentiment with black ink.
The image was then colored in with Prismacolor Pencils.
To finish the card I used red card stock to mat the Lil Bloomin' Owl
since he had a red heart on him.

=============================

Up next I am going to use "Love You This Much" Owl 
also by Lisa Arana.


For this card I started with a red card stock.
I grabbed one of my embossing folders with hearts on it and 
embossed the red card stock.
I stamped both the owl and sentiment in black ink and 
colored in with my colored pencils.
Matted the image and sentiment onto black paper to finish.

===========================


For my third card today I used "My Kinda Favorite Owl". 
To start I used a gray card stock that I embossed with polka dots.
I stamped image with black ink and colored in.
I chose to use the polka dot embossing folder because of the
ladybug on top of the owls head (smiling).

=========================


For my next card I used "Going To Be Owl-Right".
For this card I used brown card stock that I embossed with my wood grain embossing folder.
I stamped image and sentiment with black ink.
Colored it in with pencils and finished by matting in black.

==============================
Here is something I created using "Bountiful Owl" which was
September 2016 Sentiments Kit from Unity.


For this owl I made a tag. I decided to use a cloud technique I had seen on one of Unity Stamp Company's video for background.
I hand drew a tree and colored it to resemble bark.
I used some leaf punches I had and punched out in various colors and tried to make it look like a tree in Fall.
For the Bountiful Owl I decided to stamp onto card stock and color in with colored pencils. For a little bit of fun I took some of the leftover leaves I had and glued together to form a mask.
I love how this tag turned out.

===========================


For my next card I used "Owl I Want".
I stamped image and sentiment with black ink, 
and colored in with Prismacolor Pencils.
I decided to add some red distress ink around the edge of the white card stock to bring out the red I used on the image.
Matted with black card stock and used green card stock for base.

======================


This card I dug out of my "Unity Archive" lol.
This was a card I made shortly after I found Unity, and 
was made for a sketch challenge.
For this card I used "Owl Bundle Up".
This card is far from perfect...my stamping I think
has gotten better (smiling).
I stamped the sentiments onto white with black ink.
Matted all with dark blue card stock, and used some 
blue and white bakers twine for a little added color.

==================================

Remember to post a comment on each day of my blog for a chance to win one of two grab bags of 25 sentiments from 
Unity Stamp Company.

:::::::Deep sigh:::::::
If you got the idea I was stalling for closing this day...
you would be guessing correct.
I really have enjoyed sharing my Unity Stamp Company
creations with you all week.
I really hate for it to end....

Please remember to always take time to create, and stamp.

I want to thank Angela Magnuson for creating 
Unity Stamp Company, and for all the amazing talented
artists at Unity who create incredible images for all of the
red rubber stamps. 

Because of Unity, I have found something that makes me smile and feel good about myself doing. I have created gifts for others to enjoy, and created cards that are one of a kind.
Unity Stamps are multi-purpose stamps to me.
I love that the images and sentiments are all individual so you are
able to put one image from one kit with a sentiment from another.
Also because of Unity I am blessed to have some amazing
stamping friends who inspire me, and we are able to help each other with opinions and encouragement.

Remember if you have missed a day of my blog you have a chance to go back and look at what I created and leave a comment
for a chance to win one of two Unity Stamp Company
grab bags with 25 stamps.

Thank you for taking time out of your days to read my blog 
and leave me comments that truly have touched my heart, made me smile, laugh, and even tears to eyes.
I truly hope you have enjoyed my blogs, maybe found a new favorite stamp you just "have to get" because of something you saw me create during the week.
You have over the weekend to leave comments on all of the
blogs - I will pick and announce my two winners Monday.

As always - Have A Great Friday....and Have A Happy Weekend!.

Keep stamping.....with Unique stamps from Unity Stamps!.

Growing In Unity - Day Four - Thursday



Hello All!. Welcome back to my Growing In Unity Blog - Day four. Wow this week is going way too fast (frowning)....but....(smiling) never fear Aimee is here to inspire you with the amazing stamps from Unity Stamp Company.

Unity Stamp Company does all orders "cooked to order". All of the orders are done as they come in and are made just for you to enjoy. 


Well for todays blog I decided to highlight two topics....men and pets....lol....no similarities I promise (smiling).  Finding stamp sets for men can be hard at time. Well not with this kit from Unity.  

For my first project I decided to use "For The Guys" by Lisa Arana. I love this kit because you can mix and match the three images with the sentiments contained in the kit to create a one of a kind card. 

My three cards I stamped images & sentiments in various colors of ink. Afterwards I matted, and placed onto card bases that matched the ink used on the images. 

Whether you need a birthday card, or thinking of you this stamp kit is great for it!. The images are awesome. 




For the second half of today's post I decided to highlight for those who are pet lovers. I used for the base a paw print embossing folder that I had. I stamped the paw stamp onto white card stock, colored in the hearts red and matted them with black. I also matted the sentiments on each of the cards.  Both of these stamp sets were created by Lisa Arana.



I really hope you liked all the cards I created. Remember to leave a comment on my blogs all week (one a day) for a chance to be one of two winners chosen to win a Unity Grab Bag of 25 stamps.

Here are links to the stamps I used today - tell them in notes/comments - You saw this in Aimee's Blog....smiling.
