GIU Day #5

Wow this week has Flown by and here is my last card for this week. I  have enjoyed creating these cards and being able to share them with you.


For this card I used: True Wishes  itty bitty stamp set. I saved my favorite card for last. 


I used the Distress Oxides to create the background for the flowers. Layering inks and water until I got the desired effect, then stamped the flowers in black licorice and then moved over slightly and stamped then embossed a second image.

Card Stock: Riverstone, Pretty Amethyst, Whip Cream, accent Paper.

Ink: Black Licorice, Whip Cream

Distress oxide : Wilted Violet, Iced Spruce, Faded Jeans

Day #4 GIU

It has been an honor to be a GIU girl again this year and can you believe today is day #4.



On this card I used the : Other Side Of Fear stamp set.

I stamped him on FSJ whip cream paper using Black Licorice ink then colored him with Color Splash Pencils using gray for his body and then a pink for the flowers. He is layered with some accent paper then I added some twine and a charm. I added some ink to the edge of the base to give it a watery feel.

Please comment and come back tomorrow.


GIU day #3

For today’s card I used …..Snail Mail stamp set.

On the card I used Tim Holtz distress inks to create the background. Blending Festive Berries, Fossilized Amber, and Peacock Feathers with round daubers to get this fun psychedelic look. I added a few embossed dots for a little texture. Then I stamped the snail and mushroom with Black Licorice Ink on whip cream paper. I then colored them  using Color Burst Pencils.

Unitygirl_2017_2I think this card is in a close second for my favorite card I created for this week. I hope you love it as much as I do. Please come back and leave a comment to be entered into the drawing.

Day #2 GIU

For today’s card I used …….There Is You stamp by Phyllis Harris.

For this Card I stamped the image with Black Licorice ink on water color paper. I  colored the image with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons then added it to the card base which is whip cream paper with a piece of Beach Ball paper for the second layer. For a little sparkle and shine I add the Rainbow drops to finish off this card.

I love the dreamy washed out looking effect the crayons have when you blend them with a baby wipe.

Please comment and come back tomorrow to see my next creation.

Growing In Unity Day #1

This is my second time to be a GIU Girl, I stepped in last December to fill in for someone. Even though I had to create on the fly, I had so much fun doing all the different techniques I used for each card.

For today’s card I used : Mystical Mermaid, isn’t she beautiful?


I stamped the mermaid using Black Licorice ink and colored her with Color Burst Pencils blending them with a paper stub and baby oil. I used Blue Lagoon paper for the card base and a piece of paper from a Christmas pack for the accent paper then added some Wink of Stella to give this card a little Sparkle.

Please leave a comment to be entered in the drawing and please stop back by tomorrow.
