Today’s card is for Unity’s Bachelor Challenge #5.  The challenge was to use something on your card or project from around the house that you do not normally use on your paper crafting.  Well I chose some cute little seashells and used them with some of my new Unity Stamps!  Yup.. they arrived, and they are WONDERFUL!!

I used my Nestabilities to cut a 4-1/4″ square card into a shell shape to keep with the theme.  To get your card to sit straight after cutting, make sure that you cut it with two scallops across the bottom that are straight with the fold.



The shells are attached with little glue dots.  The boat and sails have been cut out and popped up with dimensionals.  Copics were used to color the boat and shell images.  A Copic Multiliner was used to draw fine lines between the stripes on the largest sail.


Aren’t these stamps the cutest!  They are from Unity’s Kit called “Beach Days & Sun Rays”.  Thank you, Unity, for sending me such a wonderful and fun assortment of stamps!

Happy Crafting (for sure!!)smileywaterwindsurferani.gif

One thing to be sure of… if I’m posting a card for a contest, then the deadline to post for that contest must be just minutes away.

Yup, here I go again!! smileyrolleyesani.gif

This card is for week 3 of the 7 week long Unity Bachelor Challenges.


Bro wanted to see some polka dots and plaid.  Hope he doesn’t mind that I threw in this big wonderful paisley image, too! *grin*  I colored it with markers before stamping which makes it so much easier to use multiple colors.

Okay.. I’ve got to run on over to the Unity gallery for this challenge on SCS to upload.  You’ll find all the weekly Unity challenges posted each Thursday here.  Come on and play.  The more the merrier!

Happy Crafting!

Woohoo!!! I was the runner up in the first of seven fun challenges sponsored by the Unity Stamp Company with my Biker Babe card!!  The prize for runner up was a grab bag of 25 STAMPS!!  How cool is that!?!  The challenges are posted every Thursday in the Unity Forum on Splitcoaststampers.

Entry to the second challenge closes in just a couple of hours.  So yes, true to form, I am getting my card posted just under the wire… again.  Why do I do this to myself!?!  lol

This week’s challenge was to use glitter.  Here’s my card.


The glitter frame was made with some cardboard.. a piece of packaging for something I bought and then saved.  You know how kids often have more fun with the box than the toy that came in the box?  Yup.  I covered the cardboard with Stickles, let it partially dry and then rubbed off the rest.  I love the way it turned out.

The glittery flourish is part of a piece of designer paper from Creative Imaginations.blog204unitybro2closeupwithwm.jpg

Why not join in the fun?  There are still five more weeks of challenges and lots more stamps to be won!

Happy Crafting!!

Have you heard about the fabulous Unity Bachelor Challenge?!?   Well I couldn’t resist playing along.  Now before you scroll down any further, I have to tell you… well it’s probably a PG-13 image.  So there’s my warning if you have little ones close by!!  LOL

Both my hubby and I have Harleys.  (Okay mine is currently in the garage of one of my married-going-to-college sons, but it’s still mine; I think.)  When I saw this stamp Big Bad Bike and discovered a whole kit of Harley related images that was offered at Unity at the time… well I got ’em!  Devil Babe came along with the kit.  Never ever did I think that I would actually use her on a card, but well… here ya go!


I have to confess this was an awful lot of fun to color.  My just turned 18 year old son came into my craft room as I was finishing up last night, and he saw what I was making.  His response, “MAH-AH-AH-AHM!”  Too funny.

I made a mask of Devil Babe and saved it on the “flyer” for the Unity Bachelor Challenge just in case someday I want to use her again…. *chuckle*


She was stamped first.  Then the mask was placed over her.  Then the bike was stamped over that.  The Hawg Parking Only sign and the Flames across the bottom were also images that came with the kit.  The sentiment is computer generated.

The challenge lasts for 7 weeks, so there’s still plenty of time to join in the fun.

Happy Crafting!!
