Growing In Unity Wednesday!!

Welcome to Growing in Unity Wednesday!   This week the lovely Isha Gupta is up sharing her Unity creations!  

Meet Isha:

Here is a little something about Isha:

"My name is Isha and I live in Switzerland. I studied biology and chemistry in University, then I studied graphic design and worked in advertising and media for two years. Now I'm a full-time mom to my two daughters.  My husband of 17 years is very supportive of my work in the paper crafting industry.  I've always been creative but got hooked on stamping about two years ago.  I've been published in Paper Crafts, CARDS, Parchment Craft and Design To Color magazines.  My style is constantly changing since I like to explore new techniques.  I love to colour using various mediums and usually lean towards fun yet clean layouts for my projects. I recently tried my hand at mix media art and really enjoyed it. I find Unity stamps perfect to use in various styles.

Now check out this great mixed media project she made:

Isn't this stunning?  Be sure to swing on by Isha's blog each day this week for loads of Unity inspiration!  At the end of the week Isha will be picking  one lucky person and that person will win 2 itty bitty stamps of their choice!

DT Tuesday with Jen E. from the Block

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got.  I'm still, I'm still Jen E. from the Block.  Anyone know that old school J-Lo song?!  Fun stuff.

Welcome to Design Team Tuesday. I decided today to get a little "KRAFTY" with it.  (get it? clever play on words.;)  I seem to lean toward kraft paper.  It's my go to background. Check it:

And check out this chick! 

Her name is Laurel and she is a chick after my own heart...UNITY STAMPS and PROJECT LIFE...shut up, it's true!  My favorite stuff all in one place!  If you are looking for cool ideas, check out her blog. :)
And in unity fashion, I will leave you with a quote/story:
 We were at my brother's house when my boy Ryan was about 4 years old.  He saw a cat jump on the counter top in the kitchen.  Disturbed by the cat's lack of manners, he told his grandma (Meme)to make the cat get down. Meme said, "You tell him!" Ryan looked at her a little surprised at what she requested he do and said, quite matter of fact-ish, 
 "Ahhhh, I don't speak CAT."

March Guest Designer: Erin Lee Schreiner

Hi Unity friends! March is gonna be a good, good month....

Erin here. I'm so stinkin' excited to be Unity's Guest Designer for March! WHOOP! I will try to contain my excitement and keep the exclamation points and smiley faces to a minimum. But just know inside, my heart is bursting because I LOVE Unity - the stamps, the images and the people behind the rubber. My goal is to show you some unique and fun ways to ink up that pretty red rubber and enable you to grow your collection of these fabulous stamps.

Today, I am sharing a card I made with Modern Chit Chat.
I love this versatile set because you can use it to create a birthday card, a love card or just a hello card. The text bubbles can be mixed and matched to create whatever you want. One of my favorite things to do with Unity stamps is paper piece. It takes a little patience and a good pair of scissors (I like Cutter Bees), but the end result is so fun, especially with a coordinating paper set like the one I've used here, Glitz Design's Color Me Happy collection
I also wanted to shared a few of my cards I've made in the past with some of my favorite flowers from Unity, Donna Downey's collection. 
You can find them on sale HERE. Today is the last day and Angela has marked these way down along with some others that are 50% off so get yourself over to the website and shop!

I look forward to spending a fun month with you!

{inspiration} Wednesday

I hope you all don't mind....
I was inspired by the 
fabulous new challenge
from Unity, again.

It's awesome
there will be a new one each month
a NEW 
Sentiment set released each month, too. 

here's the inspiration photo....
Isn't it amazing?!!!
Love the colors and all the stripes. 
I made a scrapbook page with the 
layout sketch that  Joslyn Nielson designed.

It's a  lovey page of my hubby and I.
I couldn't help myself and also used the the
new sentiment set 

 I used lots of the words from this set. 
It was so fun to just add them here and there. 

See those red splatters....
they were easy to add to my page. 
I took a drop of MFT Wild Cherry re-inker
added a spritz of water to the drop and then
picked up the ink with a small paint brush.
With a tap of the brush on my finger I was able to 
add some controlled drops of color
here and there. 
{I struggle with those Color Spritz and Mister bottles}.

Here you can see I added a subtle background stamp, 
in Sno Cone ink to my background. 

and a few cute tabs, balance out my page 
and follow the sketch!

here's another close up of the title and photo. 

create something today!!
lots of hugs,
