Happy Monday! If you're here for the first time, welcome -- it's my Growing in Unity week. All week long, I'll be posting projects featuring Unity's fun and funky designs.
I decided to give my week a little twist -- everything you'll see here was made from the kit I put together for this month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge. You can read the suggested guidelines for this month's kit here -- it's a DIY affair inspired by one of my favorite scrappers, Shimelle Laine. I used less paper than the guidelines ask for...but more (way more) stamps, of course! I used my kit to make two projects for you today.
So, let's get on with it. How about a layout featuring my two favorite boys?
I started with some orange mist and cardstock, including some cool resist cardstock from Stampin' Up that's been in my stash for ages. The rub-ons at the bottom are equally old :) But of course, you're here for the stamps:
I love how scrap-friendly the Simple Stories co-brand stamps are! Here I used one from the year-o-graphy line layered with some ribbon and bling.
I also stamped the Life Bingo stamp on the same cardstock as the photo mat, because I thought the resist would look nifty.
Since I had some of that resist cardstock left over, I used it to make a summery card:
More Simple Stories stamps here -- this time, I used Sweet Summer Memories for the sun and sentiment. The "water" is just masked and misted with three shades of blue, and the "sand" at the bottom is some corrugated paper packaging I saved from the recycle bin :).
The whole card is also misted with Mister Huey's Shine for a subtle shimmer...which is so subtle you can barely see it here!
Ok, I think that's enough for one day -- but don't worry, I'll be back with more tomorrow! Remember to leave comments all week long for a chance to win two itty bitty stamps of your very own!
Enjoy your day :)
