You should have arrived here from Alaine's blog! Wasn't her work just fantastic!?

Here are two cards using an Angie Blom floral Unity stamp! It is from a past Kit of the Month, We can Rise 6/18.


These are the Spectrum Noir markers I used.


Vellum added some elegant softness to the gold embossed sentiment from Girl Truly.


Sorry about the lighting with my next card. I completed it last last night and I don't own a light-box. I usually use natural lighting for my pictures. This time I gold embossed the entire floral stamp onto watercolor paper. I used some Jane Davenport watercolor and just loosely blotted down purple and dark blue for the flowers and then green for the leaves. After it dried I added some more watercolor to make the colors deeper. "You bring beauty to each day" is from the Wild Florals kit.


I added a Gina Marie trim die to the edge to add some interest and make the purple stand out even more. I tried yellow but it just wasn't looking right.


I'll be giving away 5 random grab bag sentiments this month. Make sure you stop back next month to find out who the winner is. Next up is Joyce V! Be sure to check out her amazing work!

  1. I have so many floral stamps from my 5+ years as a KOTM subscriber. I like your idea of using one as a background/border as you did on your first card. And the coloring on the second card is absolutely beautiful! Both cards are amazing!

  12. Beautiful cards! I love your coloring. I have spectrum noir markers but I haven't been able to get them to blend right at all. You give me hope that maybe there is still a chance for me.

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…

Matthew 7:16-20King 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.

Friends Of Unity Sept Autumn Colors

Friends of Unity September Autumn Colors

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.
