Love & Blessings

WELCOME
Unity Stamp Blog Hoppers
You should be arriving here from the blog of the talented and sweet Renee Aslette.
 Should something go awry during the hop, just head back over to the 

For this hop I've broken out some brand new stamps
that I haven't had a chance to work with yet.  
They've been eyeing me and I've been eyeing them right back ;)


I love any round stamp that can be punched out with one of my circle punches!
The "Count Your Blessings" image is from the
Country Pumpkin Chowder by Jillibean Soup
 I coupled it with different papers and journal spots from Jillibean :)

I've loved this next stamp, "Sending My Love" for quite some time. 
 I made this next card  with a very special friend in mind ♥

 

 I used a combination of colored pencils, water-color pencils and Zig Markers.
After shading with the colored pencils I went back over with a coordinating
water-color pencil and then blended with water. I was also able to obtain
some shadows and shading with this method as well.
After stamping the main image, I went back and added some red ink
to the 'flag' on the stamp and then stamped the image and cut out.  I love the 
3-D effect that it gives along with the silver brad.

That wraps it up for me on this hop...now it's time to have a 
visit with the stamping sensation, Shilo Miles!

Thanks for dropping by!
