Susan K.Weckesser & Unity stamp blog hop!!!

Hello and welcome to my blog!!!

I have to warn you that I am not exactly what we call a card maker but I enjoyed making these two cards using that seriously CUTE Mr. snowman by Susan K.Weckesser & Unity!!!



****

We are so very excited you are joining us for our first ever SusanK Weckesser Design Team Blog Hop with Unity Stamp Design Team


If you are not already a follower, we would love for you to join our families and follow our blogs as well as stay up-to-date by Liking us on Facebook:



During this 2-day hop, you will be inspired and in awe of all the fabulous creations shared by members of these two talented design teams.
Both teams will be sharing Simple Christmas Card Ideas using Unity Stamps designed by Susan K Weckesser Inc. It's not too late for Christmas Cards.   According to the US Postal service, if you mail your holiday cards by December 20, they will arrive by December 25th!  And, this will give you a chance to also join in the Christmas Love Campaign.

My cards are very simple considering my busy, messy style! 
**For the 1st one, I used a sizzix snowflake die which I have painted gold using a dabber and I added some pearls too. Behind that, I have placed some mesh just to give some texture and depth. To paint the snowman, I used distressed ink (aged mahogany) with the tip of a brush and gold dabber the same way. The buttons are covered with black stickles and I placed some stardust stickles all over too, but I don't think you can see the sparkle in the photo...
**For the 2nd card, I have painted the snowman the same way and have also created a small cluster with Christmas flowers.

We are giving away two chances to win an amazing prize package containing a generous variety of Susan K Weckesser stamps co-branded with Unity Stamps. 
You can see the entire Susan K.Weckesser -{Artisan} collection --->HERE!!!
