Growing In Unity Blog Hop

Hello.  Welcome.  Today I am excited to be part of the Growing In Unity blog hop. 


Every single week of the year Unity gives someone a chance to showcase Unity stamps and gives away two grab bags of lovely Unity rubber.   They call this their Growing in Unity programme, and today we are giving you another opportunity to enjoy amazing creations using unity stamps, and of course there is a chance to win!!!

You should have arrived from Michelle, or if you are just joining me or find a broken link you will find the complete hop list on Amanda's blog.


I made a single layer card using stamps from Unity's Stand Tall set.  Isn't that flamingo just adorable??!!  I used a white hammered card base, stamped the flamingo, masked, stamped the doily, masked and drew some lines using Stormy Sky distress marker.  I stamped the sentiment and then coloured the ground, horizontal bar and flamingo with distress inks.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning some Unity stamps.  You need to hop over to CINDY now.  Hugz

  25. I love the flamingo and the text stamps you used on this great card, Gail. I was sad to see that they came in an elaborate kit of stamps and that one could not purchase them singly. A bit out of my price range when coupled with so many other stamps.
