You've Got a Friend in Me {Unity}

Doesn't the title of this post make you want to sing?
"You've got a friend in me...you've got a friend in me....not working for ya?"  

Sorry

Ok, on to the post.

Today I'd like to share with you a darling stamp that was just released at 
Phyllis Harris really knows how to tug the heart strings with her sweet, sentimental images, doesn't she?  I am in love with this scene and I hope you like it too.


Friend in Me


I very loosely water colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
And you'll notice the texture on the cloud?  That is added using Marvy Uchida Snow Marker.
There is a very quick video on my YouTube channel showing how I did this.  


I added a close up for you to really see how "fluffy" the cloud appears.





Be sure to stop by Unity to enjoy the site wide sale going on right now.

This darling stamp set is yours as a gift when you make a purchase of $75
It's called Sweet Peas 
designed by Tierra Jackson

Sweet Peas 
I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to color this cutie and just added a few touches of 
white gel pen for accents...easy Peas-y  

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.
Wishing you a fabulous weekend.

Happiness Blooms {UU}

Happy Sunday, everyone!
I'm over on the Unity Stamp Company blog today sharing 
another creation using the new Uniquely Unity Membership Kit.
I LOVE THIS stamp set...seriously.
I am just amazed at the variety of ways I've seen this new kit used. 

Today I'm sharing a simple card but this gorgeous daisy makes a huge statement.

The coloring is done with Copic Markers and the texture is Nuvo Drops.


The kit comes with both sentiments you see in the photo above.

A Daisy and a Lady {UU}




Happy Friday!!  

I'm over on the Unity Stamp Company Blog today with the newly released
Uniquely Unity Collection Membership Kit.

I absolutely fell in love with this kit called A Daisy and a Lady.

The flower is such a great size and that little lady .... just precious.

I used Copic Markers to shade the flower and Clear Wink of Stella for the sparkles.

The Die set that I used is from 
 the scallops are just the right touch 
for my design.

Don't forget to check out the sales this weekend as well.



Wishing you a great weekend...

So much inspiration from the DT this month...but what else is new, right?

Hello Little Birdie Kit by Tierra Jackson

I just used Copic Marker to shade in this image.  
Tierra has added so much detail to this sweet birdie. LOVE IT. 



AND



I can't get enough of these light bulbs. 
My stash of "congratulations" cards is pretty slim so 
this kit came out at the perfect time.  
Again, just some Copics and a few Nuvo Drops were all 
that I needed.

June Calendar Page


Hello!
Today I am sharing my first ever calendar page. 
I have had this book since January and am just now getting brave enough to ink it up.  
I am sharing this project on the Unity blog for the DT Tuesday Post.  
I used the Angie Girl stamp   Best You - Emily girl.
She is pretty special to me because she reminds me of the time we 
spent in Okinawa, Japan with our children while my husband was active duty.



I used Copic Markers to color in the image. 
I stamped her off the page a bit as well so I would still have room for writing.  



The other stamps you see are from a grab bag I received a LONG time ago. 
I need to get busy and fill in the rest of the dates.


Thank you for stopping by today.
Enjoy these last few days of May!

Misti & Unity Stamp Company Co-hop




Welcome to the Unity Stamp Company / My Sweet Petunia Co-Hop. 
I'm so excited to share with you my projects using the MISTI tool.  
There is also a quick video to show you this wonderful little gem in action.

I had so much fun learning to use the MISTI tool for this card.
The stamp set is called Shrooms and to get the mirror image I used the 
Mirror Image tool from Unity Stamp Company.  



I just added a sentiment banner and a few strips of washi tape and the result is pretty cute.





NEXT .....
is a lovely foursome that I put together in a flash using the MISTI.
It was so quick and effortless with the 
final project being this pretty set of 4 cards that I can share as a gift.


I distressed the edges of each card first, then stamped the image twice using 
the MISTI tool.  As you can see the image imprint is clear and really stands out.


I used the stamp set by Phyllis Harris is called .....thank you kindly 
The card bases for all of the cards is by Strathmore and it is #140
I wanted to mix up the sentiments a bit more so I added stickers so each one is different.






Thank you for stopping by and don't forget... everyone who leaves a comment on all the blogs in the hop will go into a drawing for 3 prize packs from Unity and winner's choice of an Original or Mini MISTI. Please leave a comment by May 30th at noon central time to be eligible.

Unity is Hoppin'

The new releases from Unity Stamp Company this month are absolutely amazing.
I'm so excited to share a few of my projects with you today.  

Spring to me means Easter and bunnies and cuteness and I think
 this little bunny is just so adorable

This kit is called 

Quick Tip: Ribbon Background

Finishing up by sharing a few graduation cards.
First is the You Did Good kit.  
I embossed the background with an argyle pattern and vellum paper.
Simple but so bold.  
Below is a peek at the set...please note that I mixed and matched the sentiments. 

Next is:
Graduation Wishes
She's simply amazing, isn't she? 
(another reminder that I mixed the sentiments on these two sets)
Thank you for stopping by. 
I hope you love the new releases as much as I do!

Love What's Meant to Be

Ever smudge your creation when you are nearly completed?
I do...and sometimes it's pretty frustrating. 
However, it can be a great opportunity to add embellishments.
Like...glitter!

I love this new set from the latest Unity Stamp Company release.
These lovely medallions can be used in SO many different ways.
The stamp set is called:  Love What's Meant to Be 
Check out my quick video to see how I fixed one of my boo boos.



Thanks for stopping by...see you soon.
