Friends Of Unity May Blog Hop Fruitful

Friends of Unity


Matthew 7:16-20 King James Version (KJV)

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.



Digging through my Unity stamps I stopped when I came to this one of Angela Magnuson.


I was reminded of her sweet spirit and loving nature. What a perfect example of a fruitful person and a fruitful business. Unity is a small hard working family owned company that God has truly blessed. Angela is generous with so much including donating to needy families at Christmas through customer nominations. Yes I love love love Unity sales but that isn't what pulls us all to the company. It's all about who they are.


They are real people who make themselves tangible. I never feel like I am doing business with a brick wall but real live human beings. I always feel appreciated when I make even the smallest purchase, love how much they give away when they do a new release ( Angela knows how to make it super fun), loving and encouraging all of us on all of our creations on the fb Show & Tell page. Customer service is spectacular too. Any problem will be resolved because each person matters. It all adds up and it all means a lot to 1 (or thousands)itty bitty stamper(s) (pun intended). lol.




So I dressed Angela in fruity sweatshirt to make her look fruitful! Does it work? lol Hope and Peace trees with Tim Holtz distress inks with a blue sky behind reminds me of a peaceful mountain trip or camping. I made the clouds by using water drops to lift the ink. Just a super simple card that radiates a peaceful sense of fruitfulness.

Stamp set used: Whatever Comes Next, Northwoods Peace, Emerson girl (sentiment)
Inks: Tim Holtz distress and Arteza watercolor brush pens, and SU Archival Ink
Jane Davenport makeup

I will be giving away a surprise Itty-Bitty! Check the other blogs for giveaways too! So be sure to leave a comment on each Friends of Unity blog to qualify.



And just because this amazing lady is holding a coffee cup I get to enter her into the Coffee Spring/Summer blog hop! Woot!

I have this wonderful memory of my daughter as a 1 year old in a butterfly conservatory in Arizona. She had the most wonderful time chasing them yet never catching one. This project was inspired by her.


My little butterfly!



I've been stuck on kraft paper lately. I can't help myself; it Just makes these butterflies stamped with ink and colored with prismas from Unity's Aug 2016 SMAK kit pop. These guys are thirsty so I added some Nuvo dew drops for them. 

This little guy let me take his pic in the conservatory.


Wink of Stella brushed on their wings reminded me of the powder I was told as a child never to touch. Did you know that the powder on butterfly and moth wings is actually made up of tiny scales?! Crazy righ…

There is so much to love about fall; especially the colors. My favorite thing about fall though is.... just watching the leaves drop from the trees. They have a way of floating through the air perfectly; in such a way as to float, swirl and catch your attention for just a moment.


I was lucky enough to get this Sept 2016 KOTM from participating in Unity's Growing In Unity guest designer program.


Prisma colored pencils were perfect for laying color on top of the dirt (kraft paper). I used a blender pent to melt the colors of the leaves together. It also helps put the pigment into the  micro valleys of the paper. The sentiment is from a grab bag.


This same Kit of the Month has some amazing stamps in it. These pumpkins are just adorable and were perfect to continue on with the fall theme. I used the same Prismas as the above card. I also used the same SU sweater embossing folder for both cards. I think it just wraps the card in some more fall.
