Growing in Unity Day One

Welcome everyone to my week as the 'Growing in Unity girl - I am so excited!! Each day this week, I will be posting creations using Unity Stamp Company stamps and at the end of the week I get to pick one person who comments to win two free Itty Bitty stamps, so don't forget to comment each day to increase your chances of winning.

 My first card uses two different stamp sets; the May 2012 Kit of the Month, Love in an Instant and the crown is from a retired store kit which I couldn't find the name of.

I also just recently acquired the ribbon tool, so I was anxious to try it out.  I made this card for my girlfriend who just got a promotion so I thought the sentiment was perfect for her.


I hope you all have a wonderful week and stop by each day for your chance to win two free Unity Itty Bitty stamps.

Michele

  1. What a fun card! I LOVE that sentiment, and I like all the metallic elements/touches. I've been curious about the ribbon/sewing tool - what do you think? Worth it? I do like the way it looks, easy to use? Looking forward to seeing the rest of your projects this week!

  2. I'm so excited! I actually know the GIU gal this week! Tell me how you got chosen. It looks like a neat thing to do for a week. I love this first card. Good job with the sewing tool!

  3. Thanks ladies. Miriam, I got the tool on sale for about $8, so I 'm happy with it. You have to line up the tool on top and bottom and then punch each hole. You then put a plastic 'needle' on the ribbon and then thread it through.
    Julie, go onto Unity's forum on Splitcoast Stampers and they will post a sign up for the GIU weeks - I just lucked out and got my name in.
