Where I Want to Be

Hello again! I am so excited to share with you my projects for the Beth Duff Designs collaboration with Unity Stamp Company! Two of my FAVORITE companies working together!

I used the set called "Warmth of Home" which is the perfect set for a Christmas themed card! I decided to do one card two ways. My first is with Copic Markers. I went with Cool Gray colors for the couch, Warm Gray for the blanket, then reds and greens for the pillows. I hit the blanket and red pillow with clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of glitter.


My next card, I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils on kraft paper. For this card, I used Warm Gray colors for the couch, for the blanket I used the Silver with the lightest Cool Gray, and again red and green. I again added Wink of Stella, which isn't amazing on colored pencils, but I love glitter, so I had to try!


The paper for the background is Vintage 45, I thought it looked like a wallpaper. The floor is kraft paper cut with a Penny Black die. The rug is the crochet stamp from "Warmth of Home" stamped on the reverse side of the printed paper. The sentiments are so sweet in this set, I have a lot of family that is spread out, so "home is where I want to be" really spoke to my heart. I stamped it onto a stitched rectangle using Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus ink.


Now it's time to hop! We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to give away. Leave a comment on EACH design team member’s blog in the hop for your chance to win. {We will announce the winners on the Unity blog TUESDAY night.}

  23. I really enjoyed seeing the two cards colored with different mediums. They both are awesome and each have their own special quality. I am inspired to change up my medium now as I tend to stick to one type too often!
