Growing In Unity - Day 1

I'm so excited to share projects with you this week using the FABULOUS Unity stamps! Unity Stamp Co. stamps have amazing designs and the quality of the stamps and the images they produce are stellar!

To start off the week I want to share a card I created using the Cosmo Cricket Set - Material Girl!  Isn't this set adorable?



The card I created would be perfect for a young girl as a birthday card!  I stamped the images of the 2 girls onto cream cardstock and placed them in a pocket.  The card receiver can color these images they way they please.

Inside the card, I used temporary adhesive and stamped the dress images on various colors of pattern paper from BasicGrey.  They can easy be peeled off and added to the 2 paper doll girls!

Thank you Unity Stamp Co. for giving me the opportunity this week to share my projects using your amazing stamps!  I appreciate it.

So glad I finally found time to read my Unity mail this week because it's led me to your blog! I think this card is awesome, I wanted to make paper dolls for my daughter - never thought of not coloring the images but now that I've seen it, it's definitely a great idea to let the receiver participate in the fun! Great job, will be a follower now!
