Growing in Unity...

Woohooo! It's my turn this week for Growing In Unity & I'm so excited because I've been waiting for months. I'm also excited because i{heart}papers just started stocking a bunch of the Unity sets, so now I can use them for design team projects ~ gotta LOVE that!

Today, I have 3 projects using the Hodge Podge of Happiness set! The images of this set were all selected by Unity customers & I've wanted it ever since it was released, so I was a happy girl when Kate at i{heart}papers ordered it.

On this first card, I wish you could see how the flowers POP. I added Glossy Accents to the center of each and they really look cool IRL. For the background, I used an old retired stamp I had in my drawer ~ it just needed something retro behind the vase of flowers. You could get the same look with another rectangle solid stamp.

Supplies from i{heart}papers: Stamps ~ Unity Stamp Co (Hodge Podge of Happiness set); Nestabilities ~ Labels 8; Ink ~ Palette; Glossy Accents by Ranger.

My next card features the same Unity set. I love this image & it's perfect with this Heidi Grace paper. I added some Breezy Blue Sparkly Fluff from Our Craft Lounge to the sweet little bird & the matching flower sticker to the sentiment.

Supplies from i{heart}papers: Stamps ~ Unity Stamp Co (Hodge Podge of Happiness set); Nestabilities ~ Ovals; Ink ~ Palette; Quickuts Embossing Folder ~ Polka Dot Patterns Lg.

My final project today features the adorable apple image form the Hodge Podge of Happiness set. I love this image that was drawn by Joslyn Neilson. I used some cool lace paper from KI Memories and stitched on a scalloped edge to the card for a bit of extra interest. I then used embossing folder on the label to give it a little punch.

Supplies from i{heart}papers: Stamps ~ Unity Stamp Co (Hodge Podge of Happiness set & Tiny Trinity (leaves stamped on scalloped border); Nestabilities ~ Labels 8; Ink ~ Palette; Quickut Embossing Folder ~ Polka Dots Patterns Small.

Check back all this week for lots more projects during my week of Growing in Unity!
