Friends of Unity May Blog Hop ~ Favorite Angie Girl/Guy

Hello, friends! Welcome to our May Friends of Unity Blog Hop!

Our cue this month is sure to be everyone's favorite as we all absolutely love the Angie Girls and Angie Guys line of stamps with Unity Stamp Co.


I have so many favorites, but decided I had to narrow it down. So I chose a favorite Angie Girl and a favorite Angie Guy.

Sawyer Guy is by far my favorite Angie Guy. Of course he is made in the image of and named after Angela's very own son Sawyer! Sorry Brian Guy, you are a close 2nd favorite now! ;)

This card is a requested recreation to a card I had made in February. I love it. You can see the original Sawyer card here. The two cards are very similar yet different. I would love to know which is your favorite of the two!




 This next card is  Beatrix Girl and she is very special to me in two ways. A year ago yesterday, Angela invited me to become a member of her Unity Design Team and Beatrix Girl was my the first card I made using my new DT watermark. Also, I emulate her entirely when I am in my natural element at our farmhouse in Arkansas. I love everything about this image!


You can see the first card I did using Beatrix Girl here on my Instagram. I just realize I colored her almost exactly the same. Love it!! I sure have gotten better at grounding my images since I first created with her!

I would love to know who your favorite Angie Girl/Guy is!

This weekend Unity Stamp Co is celebrating 12 years! In honor of Unity's birthday celebration, there is a fantastic flash sale and the most incredible new releases with an introduction to a new stamp designer. I encourage you to visit Unity for the new releases. Also, help me in congratulating my friend Sandhya for her absolutely beautiful new releases. In both rubber and digital stamps!

Friends of Unity April Blog Hop ~ Sketch Challenge

Hi, friends!

Welcome to our April Friends of Unity Blog Hop!

This months cue is a sketch challenge! I love sketch challenges, but rarely do them. How fun these were to create from a sketch idea!

Below you can find a photo of the sketch if you would like to play along with our challenge this month. And I hope that you do! As a matter of fact, for those of you who do play along using any Unity Stamp Co stamp and tag me in their post, I have a separate give away for one of you!


This first card is completely inspired by those serving us on the front lines as we combat this current season of life we are in. My prayer is that it will bring encouragement and offer gratitude.

I love this heart with the intertwined branches and beautiful foliage from a Graciellie Design set called "Here's to love and friends". The sentiment is from the May 2016 Sentiment Kit called "you can and you will".

Forgive the dullness of the photos. I had little light to work with.





I had fun just being free to allow the background to flow and create on it's own! Can't you tell! Hahaha!! After I was done with the messy background I splattered white paint on both the panel and the bg letting if fall where it pleased. ;)

I try to purchase nearly every sentiment kit. There are so many sentiments (and a few images) included in every single set that can be used for so many occasions.

The flower stem, (I have even used them as leaves), and sentiment I used in this next card are from the October 2018 Sentiment Kit called "I am with you" designed by Graciellie. This kit is absolutely beautiful. One I encourage you to have in your collection. 





I love smooshed backgrounds and images like these look fantastic popped up on top. I use a sandwich baggie with distress inks for this smoosed background. And of course I love adding a bit of paint splatter!

My hope and prayer is this verse from Exodus will replace fear with hope and faith. I will be sending this card to offer a glimmer of hope to someone struggling to see past what our world is facing. 

It is hard to know what to say in this present hour. If I can offer any amount of encouragement it is that my own hope and faith still lie in the one I draw my strength from daily. My Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ. He never promised their wouldn't be trouble, He promised He would always be our strength in times of trouble. 

As always~

Friends of Unity February Blog Hop~ Monochromatic


Welcome to February, friends!
And welcome to our Friends of Unity February Blog Hop where we are seeing everything in monochromatic style!

I've always loved the look of monochromatic in crafting, but I rarely create with this concept. I am not sure why because the results are always beautiful! As a matter of fact, I loved creating this first card so very much that I can't wait until I make another.


I love ALL Unity Stamps, but I must admit the Angie Girls will always be my favorite. I know many of you share my sentiment towards this line!

This beautiful lady is Journee Girl , and she was a dream to color in monochromatic style! 
I absolutely love the coloring on every part of her! She was pretty quick to watercolor now that I have been using Zig brush pens for a few years. I did include a link to the brush pens I used incase you are unfamiliar, but is not an affiliate link. ;)


The top panel is from a die I purchased at Gina Marie Designs called Rectangle Pierced Die. I do believe it is sold out, but hopefully will be back! I buy all of my Enamel Dots from her!


This card is going to a young lady in our bible study group who is facing a new beginning of her own. I am certain this sentiment will encourage, and even perhaps, empower her!







I have been wanting to use this Sweet Sprinkled Donut set by Graciellie Designs. And this months cue was the perfect time! I am loving the outcome of this purple mono style! The donut and sentiments are all stamped in VersaFine Clair ink in Monarch. I stamp all of my images in Versafine Clair. And you can get them from Unity!



You can't tell in the photo, but I traced the squiggle lines on the donut and filled the heart hole with these beautiful Nuvo Jewel Drops in Pale Periwinkle. Oh how I wish you could see and touch the amazing effect it gave! Did you know can get these drops and more at Unity!


I stamped and watercolored the donut first, loosely watercolored around it and then stamped my sentiments. :)


I would love to see your take on the monochromatic design!

Friends of Unity~ Favorite Unity stamp of 2019

Hello friends!

Welcome to 2020 and welcome to our January Friends of Unity Blog Hop!

This months cue is Favorite Unity stamp of 2019. Talk about difficult! I have soooo many favorites! I was able to narrow it down to two.

This card uses the absolutely beautiful woman from Angie Blom's My Heart Trusts and a sentiment from Graciellie Designs set called My Soul Finds Rest. Saved by love is only part of a sentiment from this set. I love that I can just stamp a portion of a sentiment to best fit what the image is saying.

I watercolored her hair and shirt with Zig Keuretake markers. On her skin I used a classics color palette from Prima. I'm loving this stencil from Tailored Expressions. I wasn't sure I would like the color of the Distress Oxide as a background to the image, but I truly love it. I did test the color on a scrap piece of watercolor paper and was surprised by how yellow it is. It is a really beautiful color.



I see myself when I look at this image. I have indeed been saved by love. I have love that has captured both my heart and my soul. The soft expression on her face and the placement of her hands over her heart echo my sentiments when I think of the sacrifice on the cross.


My hope and prayer is that this year brings you a peace we all search for. And a reminder that you, too, have been saved by love.

Please, share with me your favorite 2019 stamp(s) from Unity. I challenge you to create a new make with your favorite(s) and would love a tag so that I may see it!

As always~

Friends of Unity November Blog Hop ~ Giving Thanks


Hello, friends.
Welcome to November and welcome to our Friends of Unity Blog Hop. 
This months cue is all about "Giving Thanks".


(Forgive me, I became quite sick on Thursday and was only able to complete one new card.)
I do love this card below. Gratitude is a powerful expression of  "Giving Thanks".
Did you know that gratitude has been scientifically studied and proven to promote health and well-being.


I have made countless cards with this new "A little warmth" set released in September. It is so fun to create different skin tones, hair colors and outfits.




I made this card for one of my daughters-in-law as she is always so eager to help me when I am sick. I am truly grateful for the relationship I have with all of my daughters-in-law and step-children. It is amazing how I can love them as I do my own 4 precious grown children.


I am so used to bringing you more than one card that it seems odd adding my closing remarks already!

Guest Designer with Brutus Monroe ~ Whale, Happy Birthday!

Hello, friends!

Bobbie Sue, here! What an honor and joy to be guest designing for Brutus Monroe this month!

Have you ever had a birthday shout out from a big blue & adorable whale? No? Well, you have now! Check out these adorable sea sweeties. I am not sure which ocean critter I enjoyed coloring more. They are all so fun to work with.

This card was created using the Tangled Waves stencil and the Fish Bowl stamp set. The sentiment is from Sharon's Scripts sentiment set. I couldn't wait for this sentiment set to arrive! It is full of stamps for various occasions. And the font is just stunning!


I love this big ol whale and his cheeky grin! And that jellyfish. He looks pretty adorable and innocent, but he carries a stinging punch! I am absolutely loving this waves stencil! It will be beautiful as a simple background even if your card is not water themed.
 


Here's how I created this card.
  1. I started by stamping all of my images and sentiment onto a scrap piece of Canson XL watercolor paper. All of the images are colored with Brushmarker Pro watercolor markers. After coloring, I cut off my sentiment and ran the sheet trough my Scan n Cut to fussy cut the images for me.
  2. Next, I stenciled the Brutus Monroe Tangled Waves stencil onto an A2 panel of Neenah cardstock using Distress Oxides in Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire.
  3. The panel is popped up onto an A2 card base with the mega roll of foam tape from Brutus Monroe. (You need this in your life!) 
  4. Lastly, I assembled my colored images, and sentiment, popping them up with foam squares.

I considered adding a sky to the negative space, but I really love the clean look. What would you have done differently? I'd love to know!



 
Thank you for spending time with me today. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed creating it!

I invite you to comment below and let me know which of these adorable sea critters is your favorite!
I would love to connect with you! You can find me on Facebook here, Instagram here and my blog here.

See you again soon, friends!
Be blessed,
Bobbie Sue

Guest Designer with Brutus Monroe ~ Fluttering Butterflies

Hello again, friends!

Bobbie Sue here. I am so excited to be guest designing with Brutus Monroe this month.

I've made a couple of cards showcasing Brutus Monroe's gorgeous "Flutter" stamp! I recently received this stamp and am so impressed with the amazing detail of the butterflies! When you have detail this crisp you can create without color and still get that WOW factor!

I love big cards! And I can not lie. It's true! 4 x 9.25 cards are beautiful! (They use a #10 envelope.)

I am crazy about this card! I know. I used color. But only to splatter with! Look how gorgeous those butterflies are in black and white!





Stamping the butterflies was very tricky as there are only 3 per side. I wanted them to trail along the entire length of my card, so lots of finagling was had! Since all the ends of the butterflies are cut off I knew I would have to do some added drawing for the butterflies to line up as one continuous stamp. It worked out much easier than I had thought!

Steps to create this card:
  1. First I cut a 4 x 9.25 panel using Bristol Smooth.
  2. Then, I stamped a side of the stamp that would easily flow with another side of the stamp and masking of parts I didn't want to ink. Now I needed to line up another side and mask off parts of the image I didn't want to ink. I left a small gap between the end of my first line of butterflies and the beginning of my second. This allowed me to draw the missing parts so that it would flow.
  3. Once my butterfly trail was stamped and connected, I added a shadow around each one using a medium gray Zig marker blending out to fade with a Zig clear blending pen.
  4. Next, I stamped the Hello from Sharon's Script stamp set directly to my card panel.
  5. Then, I placed the hello stamp back over the sentiment so that when I splattered my copper/gold the color would not get on or directly around word. I did, however, remove it when I splattered the black.
  6. Once dried I attached the panel to the #10 card base, made from black cardstock, using Tombow permanent adhesive. Cutting approximately an 1/8 in from around the panel so that it would have a slight black border.
This card proved to be a challenge, but I learned some things along the way and I love the result!

*************************************************************************

On this next card I stamped 1/4 of the stamp on one side and 1/4 of the stamp on the other. The full image measures 5.5 x 5.5, but I wanted my card to be 4.75 x 5. I was not concerned with the middle part not lining up since I was adding the sentiment on a strip in the middle. The top middle panel is popped up with Brutus Monroe foam tape. This tape gives the perfect height when wanting dimension from one layer to the other.


I absolutely love this gold on black embossed panel! I love Brutus Monroe's Gilded embossing powder. It is the most gorgeous gold!


If you have not purchased this background stamp, I encourage you to. There are so many creative possibilities in using it.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the techniques I used! Which card is your favorite? Mine is definitely the first card!

Thanks for spending this time with me, looking at my makes and enjoying my blog!


I would truly love to connect with you! You can find me on Facebook here, Instagram here and my blog here.

See you soon, friends!

Be blessed,

Bobbie Sue

Guest Designer with Brutus Monroe ~ Paper Cranes take flight.


Hello, friends!

Bobbie Sue, here! I am so happy to be with you as a guest designer with Brutus Monroe.

I'm incredibly excited to share todays card with you. The stamp set I used is one of the most delicate and beautiful images I have ever worked with. As a matter of fact, this stamp set is so versatile it can be used for ANY occasion.

The card below showcases the beautiful Paper Cranes stamp set. I am just smitten with this entire stamp design! I would love to see your makes using this set.

When I first received this set I had so many thoughts of how to use these amazing cranes. I am quite happy with this layout and eager to create using this set again!

This card was so quick to make that I plan to make a few more to have in my stash.


Here are the steps in making this card:
  1. I double stamped the cluster of cranes onto a beautifully colored piece of DSP cut slightly smaller than an A2 panel.
  2. Then, I stamped the 4 single cranes onto a scrap piece of Canson XL watercolor paper and colored them with a Zig marker in beige. I love blending out color with a lighter version of the main color. In this case, I blended out the beige with a Zig marker in vanilla.
  3. Again, I let my trusty Scan n Cut do the fussy cutting for me. (I've not the patience nor the skill to fussy cut small images.) I popped up the cut out cranes on the panel using foam squares.
  4. Next, I attached the panel to an A2 card base using Brutus Monroe's mega roll of white foam tape.
  5. Lastly, I stamped the Miss You sentiment (from Sharon's Script) onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and attached it using foam strips.
Long after I finished this card I decided it was missing something that would give it more life. So, I covered the peeking panel, 2 of the cranes & the sentiment and splattered gold paint. I absolutely love the finished look this gave!


Look closely and you can see the shadow I added to the cranes using a Zig marker in light gray. I love how it gives the "in flight" effect. 



I am so happy to have had the opportunity to spend this day with you on the Brutus Monroe blog! I would love to hear your thoughts on this card and stamp set. Please, comment below. I read each comment with a smile.
I would truly love to connect with you! You can find me on Facebook here, Instagram here and my blog here.

See you again soon, friends!

Be blessed,

Bobbie Sue

September Friends of Unity Blog Hop ~ Autumn Colors

Hello, friends! And welcome to our Friends of Unity September Blog Hop!

This months cue is all about Autumn Colors. There is something so magical about all the various colors of Autumn. So rich and vibrant! So enchanting and inviting! I am ready, as I know you are!

I thought pumpkin and leaves would be perfect for this months cards. If we were living at our Arkansas farm I would have pumpkins everywhere and I would never rake my leaves. Unless, of course it was for the grandbabies to jump in. :)


Help us in warmly welcoming Dawn Bryson and Alaine Tanner to our FOU faimly! So so happy and excited to have them as part of our team!

This first card is using Angie Blom's Pumpkin Patch Border. I truly stretched my coloring on this one by using a light blue on some of the pumpkins. I absolutely love the result! I honestly think this is one of my absolute favorite colorings I've ever done.




I used Stampin Up's Stampin Write brush pens. A friend from church graciously gave them to me and Oh how I love them! There is a beautiful blue grey that I colored the blue pumpkins with. Often I will use that color to shade also. Do you shade around your images to make them pop? I especially love to on all of the cluster borders that Angie creates.


 This next card was honestly a last minute decision. And by last minute I mean, last night. Ha.
It wasn't the vision I had, but I like it. The corner cut was inspired by a card Julissa had made recently. (What an amazing talent she is.)

 This leaf, from the set Obsessively GratefuI, is perfect for repeat stamping. I love everything Graciellie Designs creates and this one is no exception.

 I love all the colors of fall, but green is definitely my favorite. Especially olive green like the paper under the panel.


I'm obsessed with all the splatters! It is so fun to splatter various colors and see how they'll fall. My husband was changing the bulb in my ceiling fan and noticed my splatter box. He was clueless and quite confused about what I have been doing. Haha. I think he assumes I'm a messy painter. Lol

 We all need to share photos of our splatter boxes! Oh my gosh that would be awesome!

 Here are the details in creating this card:

  1. First, I repeat stamped the leaf onto an A2 size piece of Bristol Smooth and loosely watercolored them with Altenew watercolors.
  2.  After the watercolor dried I splattered the panel with various Picket Fence liquid watercolors drying with my heat gun after each color.
  3. Once the splatters dried I ran the panel through my Gemini with a scallop edge border die from MFT. I also had a piece of the olive green cardstock underneath so that I could use the cut off as shown.
  4. The sentiment from the set Sweetness is heat embossed in black onto a piece of vellum. (Although it looks brown in this light photo.) I wrapped it around the top panel securing to the back with scotch tape.
  5. I popped the panel up onto an A2 card base using an 1/8 in foam tape by Brutus Monroe. The green cardstock is also popped up, but using the smaller 1/16 in foam tape, also by Brutus Monroe.

When I held my last card class I made up several of these heat embossed sentiments on vellum. It is so nice to have them in my stash when I am pressed for time!

Do you see the beautifully embossed floral in the green cardstock? I bought this paper pack long ago from Michaels and absolutely love the different designs on each piece. I wish I could recall the name of the pack. I've not been able to find it since.
