SCS Challenges featuring Unity Stamps!

Happy Humpday, ya'll! I had to go into work for a little bit today but I managed to get 2 cards done this evening.

This first is for this week's Inspiration Challenge at splitcoast. We were challenged to find a print at that inspired us. I found this cute Owl print. Here is what I created:

Free Bird
  • Stamps- Unity Confessions and Unity June KOTM
  • CS- CTMH Cranberry, SU Whisper White and Black
  • DP- BG Junebug
  • Other- SU Scalloped punch, primas, stickles

I also completed the sketch challenge. I hadn't yet opened my Razzleberry Lemonade Paper yet but I went ahead and did so and came up with this:

Razzleberry Moments


  • Stamps: Unity June KOTM
  • CS- SU Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, and Crushed Curry
  • DSP- Razzleberry Lemonade
  • Ink- Palette Noir, SU rich razzleberry and crushed curry

This is a more simple card but it turned out cute! Hope you enjoyed these creations and have a fab rest of the week! Now if I can only get the invites done for Nate's 3rd Birthday next week.. OY!

AMYRFTS3- Thinking of Pixies!

Happy almost Monday everyone! I am enjoying not having to get up early on Monday for the remainder of the summer.. sorry to all of you without the break! We had a great 4th of July. It was Sam's birthday. We had 2 cookouts, one with my parents (ribs and cheesecake!!) and one with my friend Jen and her DH (yummy hamburgers, etc.) We kept Nate up and went to see the fireworks which were HORRIBLE! We waited for 1.5 hrs... and got a 10 min. show!! I was not happy. Nate just started paying attention when they ended!

Today was a very blah day. It rained all day and all of us napped at some point. I did find time to complete Amy R and Tammy Fielder's sketch challenge (Tammy is a Guest Designer). This also doubles as a card for a color challenge from my RL Friends' card swap.

Thinking of Pixies

  • Stamp- CC Designs Swiss Pixie; sentiment from Unity
  • CS- PTI Whisper White, CTMH Cranberry
  • DP- CTMH
  • Ink- Palette Noir
  • Coloring Medium- Copics
  • Accessories- Primas, So Saffron Ribbon, CTMH ribbon, white brads, coluzzle

I had to use my other swiss pixie for this card. They're so gorgeous!! I am excited to see all the new releases tomorrow at All That Scraps!!

Unity KOTM Guest Designer Challenge

My second post for today!
Unity has monthly challenges for their Kit of the Month Guest Designer. This is my first time trying it but I enjoyed it. This was a sketch challenge.
Tea for Two
I went for a vintage/mod look and think I achieved it! All paper and embellies are from the Sassafras Jungle Bungle collection which I won from the Moxie Fab blog! This is a very fun line!
Images are from the Unity June KOTM. Which brings me to my next card...
Cherry Lemonade

I just received my order of Basic Grey Lemonade and June Bug papers from All that Scraps (super quick shipping!!). The colors in this particular sheet, cherry cobbler, match SU former in color purely pomegranate and the new SU in color rich razzleberry. I used my blossom nestabilities. I really want to use more of this paper line!

Wish me luck!
