Unity {Inspiration}

Welcome to this Thursday's 
UNITY {INSPIRATION}
and the release of several new Phyllis Harris stamps!
You will see a lot of sweet examples today with the new images...I had to work ahead
early so I went with the April Kit-of-the-Month for my two cards :)
First order of business though:
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**
A $20 Unity Gift Certificate will be awarded to THREE lucky commentors, so be sure
to say "hello" before you leave each blog!


I was so excited to try out my brand new polka dot embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts!
And I just happened to have the exact size circle punch for the touch of black.
For those gorgeous red lips, I stamped the image with Martha Stewart's Glue Pad 
and then glittered with red.  I hand-cut the lips from the red cardstock and then attached it
to the white paper with foam dots.


 I love these wedding bells...they're so nostalgic and remind me of a 1950's wedding.
I stamped the bells onto a white and light blue textured cardstock by American Crafts.  
After cutting the bells from the blue paper, I glittered the one side by using a fine-point glue pen
(Martha Stewart) and then sprinkled with silver glitter.  By using the fine-point pen I was able
to dot a couple of the areas with glitter on the other bell.
