What's brewin'?
Today starts a wonderful, caffeinated collaboration with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers design team, and the amazing design team over at Super Sponsor

Sweet n Sassy Stamps are offering a $25.00 gift card to use in their store to one commenter from the hop!!

Here's how I was inspired!!
I chose to use this fun digital stamp called 
Snowman Soup.
I've added the link below

After sizing and printing my image on white cardstock, 
  I colored him with Copic BG-10-11-13 

I also printed the sentiment and enlarged it.

 I used Stampin Up, Pool Party cardstock for this card
It's such a pretty subtle color.
I added the snowflakes from Jolee's 
I hope you like my card. I cannot wait to make more using this guy!!
 Can you see it in soft pink? I can!! 

Up next is this fun Pocket Card I CASED from my friend 
Crystal Minkler,
 here is a link to her blog for all the details
I also made this pretty Christmas card using SnS digital stamp set called 

For this card, I used a white card base, and a sheet of pattern paper, and die cut it.
Then after sizing and printing the image I colored it with red and green Copics.
Then I fussy cut the entire image out.
I added it, and the sentiment to the card front. 
To finish it off, I added a few enamel dots and that's it!
 I will be using this digi A LOT this year for Christmas 2021 cards!


Well, that's it for me!!
I hope you are enjoying the hop!

Friends of Unity January 2021

Happy New Year!!!

Another great card! I really love the added ribbon on the stem... the perfect touch! (And here's another stamp for my wishlist! LOL)

Carol Wortman

Cheers to you on this wonderful Anniversary... many more. I love how you colored this glass. The pen sparkle looks very realistic. Oooo and bubbles make a party! The bow and sentiment add that perfect pop. Love this card. This was fun again... Merry Christmas!! 

Please email me

 Friends, please know that our hops are not sponsored. (Although, we know Unity Stamp Co. lovingly approves) Because your support is so valuable and so appreciated, prizes are given from the creators own private stash of Unity stamps.

For this month the cue is 
Black & White
I love B&W with a pop of color somewhere, but this one was all B&W...a challenge for me!
I feel like I cheated in some way, because this was too easy...
I chose to heat emboss.
I used Brutus Monroe ink and embossing powder.
I really love their powder, and ink
I started with Angie's Tree~ below is a link
I stamped in Versafine clear ink, then heat embossed it with black powder
I stamped the sentiment on vellum, and also heat embossed it (be sure to let this dry before you trim)
See those sweet hearts hanging from the tree?
I wanted to color bad...I'm glad I left them alone!!
I had the Thank You die cut in my stash, as well as a line of crows, so I cut one out and added him
 (no idea why I did this)

For my second card I had to make something "coffee" because, well, it's my thing
 (along with vintage campers)
My absolute favorite stamp from Unity is 
Dream of Being
It's always the perfect stamp for me.

Oh this card!!
I had it all assembled, right? 
I went to glue it all down, and on a whim, I put the sentiment (with glue on it) at the top
OMGeeee what did I do?? Too late now, I was stuck or it was, rather.
So here I am wanting to remove it, but it won't come off, so I embraced it.
Added a bow to the bottom, and called it finished.
It turned out ok.
I hope you have enjoyed the hop this month
Please be sure to start at the beginning of this hop over on Crystal's blog
