DT Tuesday.. Authentique and my Idol !

Hello everyone, Angie Blom here with DT Tuesday..
Ever have those moments that you want to create something totally different, change up your style..
maybe do something like one of your idols.. well, today I thought I would have some fun.. and do just that.. So for years I have loved this person.. and her style..
 you might know her.. Eva Dobilas..
 she is my inspiration when I need a pick me up.
 she is also a wonderful friend and supporter !!
So for fun.. I am honoring my dear friend with a card inspired by her style..

This year I wanted to add more detail and layers to my cards so.. using some of the papers from
Authentique's paper collection delights.. I layered my card.
Now how about that great sentiment.. it is a new one just released for Winter CHA..
It also reminds me of my friend and her beliefs to celebrate life everyday!

Using some Spellbinders, and a Martha Stewart punch and my Favourite Distress Inks by Tim Holtz that you can also purchase on the Unity Website..

Keeping with my Eva Styled theme I also did the inside of my card to match the outside.

Do you have someone you admire and love their style of cardmaking ?..
 Maybe next time
give their style a try..
it is always good to challenge yourself..
 and create something totally
different. ..
Make sure you check out the Unity Facebook Page around 10am est.. I will be posting a
question and a random winner will win an itty bitty of their choice!!

We also have Virtual CHA going on all week long.. so more inspiration coming daily!!

I leave you with a quote..

Have a wonderful day..

Virtual CHA Crisp and clean style

Happy Virtual CHA Tuesday!
Since I'm not in Cali enjoying the sunshine, fresh oranges and amazing creative mojo that is there right  now
I thought I'd bring a little sunshine to the Unity blog today and share some new releases from Unity/Bella Blvd!

I stamped the chevron/ric rac stamp from the Jan KOM for my background -added some pop-dots and twine for more texture and interest.  (oh, and just had to throw in the little doily underneath!)
Love the crisp and clean lines on this!

For my next card, I embossed the background instead of stamping, I really need to to this more often!
added the pear and sentiment, clean and simple, yet like it!

Thanks for stopping by the Unity Blog today!

Heart and Soul

Hi there...

It is Lisa A. here 
with the last January 2012 KOM 
project of the month.  

Just a reminder to sign up to get the 
Heart and Soul kit 
before the new 
February 2012 kit is revealed on Wednesday.

Love, Love, Love that flower stamp.  
I also love that the stem is separated from the flower. 
You can angle and pop and do whatever you like.
So cool.

 I cut the center of the journal spot out to create a little frame.
The flower was popped up and just a few butterflies finished this card off.
I left it blank because I couldn't decide where to put a sentiment.
Sometimes, blank is best.

I have an Assemble This! video for today as well... you can see step by step on how this card was created.


Make sure you scroll down to see some more awesome 
peeks at the NEW Virtual CHA releases.  
Good stuff!
can't wait, click 
for all the new stamps and to shop, shop, shop!


And, I'll be back a little later with the 
friends with flair winners as well.
