Unity Challenge

Here is the color chart for Unity Stamp Company's challenge:
I had fun with these tones
and ended up making three cards!
I'll show you the first one,
if follows the card sketch.
It also has all the colors
they recommend.

This stamp is Pocket Full of Posies.
I added the sentiment, which was
bought separately.  Isn't it a fun way
to frame the "Thank You"?
I gave the flowers a little extra life with
a touch of Copic marker coloring.

The next card uses up some die cut machine
scraps.  I cut the same shape out in white,
only a 1/2" smaller.  Then I stamped the letters
"MOM" on them and sponge inked & used
Copics.  The stamps are from Grid Alpha.

The faint pink butterflies are All About Hope.

The last card is simple, but I couldn't resist
using those colors together one more time.

Easter Bunny Spools

I love crafting with vintage items!
These old thread spools made the
cutest little Easter Bunnies.

I wrapped them with thin white ribbon,
added googlie eyes, paper noses & mouths.
The ears were tricky to make, since they have
a strip of paper that slides into the spool hole.
