Mojo Monday Week 113 featuring Unity

Another manic mojo Monday coming at ya! This week I decided to use my new Unity stamps for the sketch since they are the vendor spotlight at Christian Papercrafts. I used the newly release Embellished Season set for my card today. Below are the sketch and my sample.

I stamped the ornament with red ink and then colored in the leaves with a copic marker and accented with stickles. For the sentiment I inked up only part of my stamp with the word "shine".

Christian Papercrafts blog hop featuring Unity stamps

This month's vendor spotlight for Christian Papercrafts is Unity stamps. This is the first time that I have used Unity stamps and they stamp just beautifully. I chose to make a CAS card today because I am in the need of some thank you cards that are not bulky and easy to mail. The new Simple Blessings stamp set fit the bill perfectly!

I stamped the 3 beautiful leaf images onto Paper Temptress Cryogen white cardstock. If you are going to make a CAS then choose a cardstock that can stand well on it's own. Each of the leaves were die cut using my mega curved rectangle nestabilities and then mounted with pop dots onto the chocolate cardstock strip. I stamped "thanks" at the bottom and accented the bottom with 2 scor lines that I made with my scor-pal.

stamps- Unity stamps Simple Blessings set
CS- Paper Temptress cryogen white, pop tones hot fudge
accessories- scor-pal, nesties

Sweet N Sassy Sunbeams debut

I excited to tell you about a new line of stamps that is being introduced from Sweet N Sassy stamps today. They are available for preorder and they are just so cute. They are called the sunbeams.

This new line consists of 4 characters: Emma, Luke, Owen & Caitlyn. Every few months we will release a new series with a different theme. Each series will only be available for a limited time! The first series is called Birthday Party in honor of SNSS 2nd birthday :).

The Sunbeams were named after the song, "Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam." It is our hope that these little children will remind you of the precious sunbeams in YOUR life!

The whole set is being offered as a preorder starting November 1st through November 15th. The cost will be $20 for the Birthday Party Bundle. Once the preorders ship mid-November, we will sell the images individually, however when they are gone, they are gone! So get them while you can!!

Today I have a card for you using using Emma who might be my personal favorite. Although, it is hard to pick a favorite because they are all adorable. See what you think
