Growing in Unity Blog Hop

 Hello, friends!

Today is our GIU (Growing in Unity) blog hop with Unity Stamp Co. Looking back at my time as a GIU friend in April I smile. What a fantastic week that was. If you didn't catch my week I encourage you to look back at my posts entitled GIU. I think you will find lots of inspiration!

For todays hop I created three completely different looks. I steered way from my usual CAS look and had fun with color! Especially on this first card!

I used Angie Bloms rainbow from the May 19 KOM. I had fun just coloring and dotting! This reminded me that I do not use enough color or free flowing design. Sometimes it is good to just start creating with no design in mind. Even if it's not your typical creating style; the process was enjoyable! Aahhhhhh...


 This tag is quite large and will look great wrapped around a gift basket for my niece. These little birdies, from Lisa Glanz's "Happy Places", are the cutest! (The sprigs they are resting on are also from this set.) I love the font of the sentiment from her set "Please Deliver To".


Have you seen the May Sentiment Kit called "...say it big "from Lisa Arana? It is a must have with it's large bold words! Very versatile. You can never go wrong with purple and black. :) Two products in my stash I am trying to use more; stencils and washi tape. I always forget to use them! Do you find you forget how well these accent your cards?

 
 
My hope is that you have been inspired to create outside of your normal style as I've done.  I would love to know which card is your favorite!
