Growing in Unity 2018 - Day 3

Happy Hump day.  

This is my day 3 post for the Unity Stamp Company.
As always the fun week is just flying by.

I loved reading all of your comments about where you live and the temperature.
It sounds like we are all HOT. 

Today I would like to find out what kind of stamp image can you not resist?
Let me know in your comments.

For me.... Flowers.
I love flowers.  I photograph them every where I go.
My hubby rolls his eyes sometime...LOL
I think it run in the family, because when I was looking through some old photos
I found a lot of flower pictures that my father had taken.

Unity has some wonderful floral images and I could buy every one of them.

My project today is one of my all time favorite images.
It is from the Angiegirl collection.
The set is called Booming-Rebecca Girl.
I've used this image many times.  

I've been trying to get way from the traditions rectangular card.
I get stuck making 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" size cards because you can get two from 
one piece of card stock and it is easy to fine envelopes.  

Recently I've been trying squares.
This one is 5" x 5"
I might suggest buying the envelopes first.  
That way you know what size to start with.  
I think my envelopes are 5-1/4" square.

I've been working on my skills of mixing patterns
and felt very confident that these patterns would all work well together.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper and used watercolors to color the image.

I again broke out the word dies to add the sentiment.
I'm really starting to love these dies.

Remember there is two prized to be won.
Leave a comment on each of my 2018 GIU post.
I will select a couple lucky winners at the end of the week.
I will post the lucky peeps to the blog next week.
You don't have to comment every day but it does increase your odds.

If you missed a day I put links below

Day 1

Day 2

Thank you for dropping by

Have a beautiful Wednesday



  1. Cute card. I need to venture out from the A2 cards I usually make.

  2. Ahhh, my favorite Unity stamp!! Wonder why?! hehe I love the beautiful coloring you did and the wonderful mix of patterned paper. Sometimes I have to make my own envelope for a card I've made because I forget about needing an envelope for an odd size card.

  3. Simply darling! Love this stamp and gorgeous card!

  4. A very pretty card! I don't do many square cards but they look awesome!

  5. It's so hard to choose which type of stamp I like the most but right now I have to say people stamps. Your card is really great. I am going to try to make different sizes. I love the layout and of course the stamp is awesome.

  6. Hot here in Norway. Love this. I am hopeless with matching patterns. This is lovely. Hugz

  7. Pretty card! I love the colors and the stamp you used! Love square cards!

  8. I love your happy colors. Nice job😁

  9. I just stamped a card yesterday with Blooming! Your colours are great- I love the shades in her dress. I have several sizes of envelopes, but never change up my card sizes- and I should! Great tip in doing so.

  10. Very nice card. Those different sizes really open up design possibilities as you have shown with your square card. I am drawn to outdoor stamps.

  11. Those bright colors work so well for this. Great job!

  12. Love your bright card with the mix of papers. My go-to stamps seem to be birds, I did not realise how many I had!

  13. Another lovely card. Your mix of images, patterns and colours are great. I tend to go for stamps with cutesy animals, birds, fish etc, but am beginning to feel dissatisfied and am looking for more flowers and gorgeous patterns. I think this is why I'm becoming more and more drawn to Unity stamps. Thanks for another fun post, Jo x

  14. Beautiful card! I have this stamp. My favorite stamps are the Angie Girl.Pam Foy
