Growing In Unity Blog Hop – May/June 2021

Hi and thank you for hopping with us! What a fun time to connect with the Growing In Unity friends!

I can’t get enough Summer vibes that I am feeling after one of our longest winters.

Just a peaceful, relaxing day at the beach. I love this kit and I thought it would be fun to make a light and airy card that isn’t complicated but still delightful. I stamped the image on a scalloped die cut. I blended distress oxide inks over the image to create a hint of sun peaking through. Next I stamped the sentiment on a smaller die and also blended inks around the edge to mimic the larger piece. I used pattern paper for the background and again blended ink on the edges. Then I adhered the sentiment and the patterned paper to white for a bit of contrast and crispness. Finally coral twine wrapped around the white layer completes the card.
This sentiment is carefree and beautiful

The card on the right I previously posted for The Friends of Unity Blog Hop last month. I love showing the warm vs. cool color schemes. Choosing colors can really change the mood of the card!

I’m feeling refreshed and content with the breeze blowing in my hair
I’m feeling the warmth of the sun and the hot sand on my toes
One more look
