The graphic below is for the current Unity Be Inspired Challenge, here is the link http://www.theunitystampco-challenge.blogspot.com/ I hope you will consider playing along with the current Unity Be Inspired Challenge. It's so much fun and the prizes are amazing - 4 Kits and 10 Itty Bittys!! Under the graphic are the cards I made for this month's Unity Be Inspired Challenge.
I made two cards using that bright and fun color story.
The first one uses this fun Subway Art graphic from the Unity Mach 2014 SMAK Kit. I've been wanting to use it forever now and this was the perfect opportunity for me. First, I colored in all the images with Copic Markers. Then I added 2 wood arrows from Studio Calico (the pink one and the blue one), various rhinestones, enamel dots, and Stickles everywhere!! It was so much fun to make and I really like how it turned out. The blue corrugated cardboard paper is from DCWV.
For my second card from this color story I used the Unity May 2014 Kit of the Month. I had to have this kit when I saw this girl holding the balloons. It's such a cool stamp. The girl with the balloons stamp and the sentiment are both from the Unity May 2014 Kit of the Month. I adhered the girl and the heart with foam dots. I sprayed the white card stock with Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray in Tilt a Wheel Teal. The pink card stock is from the DCWV Spring/Summer Stack. The banner and heart are from the Heidi Swapp Color Magic Collection - Paper Goods - Ephemera. I sprayed them with Heidi Swapp Color Shine Spritz in Primrose.
I also made a 2 cards with the current card sketch.
For this one I used this hanging dress from the Unity May 2011 Kit of The Month - honestly these Unity KOM stamps never get old to me. I want to say it's one of my favorite KOMs, but they are all on my favorites list. Unity KOMs just ROCK!!! The sentiment is from the awesome Unity March 2014 Kit of the Month.
For my last card I used this fun ice cream cone from the Unity July 2011 Kit of the Month and the Coolness sentiment is from the Unity March 2014 SMAK Kit. It's so far my only SMAK kit, but I absolutely love all the graphic images in that kit. The ink is Memento Black and all the papers are from DCWV Spring & Summer Stack. I adhere the cupcake with foam dots and added a little matching pearl to the heart on the top of the ice cream cone. I think it make a super fun summer card.
