New Unity Design Team and a Big Surprise!

The 8 new members of The Unity Stamp Co. were announced today and I had to share the news! Each one of these ladies is so very talented and thier blogs are bursting with inspiration and creativity! I am thrilled for them all, but especially my friend Maren, who is fast becoming a superstar in the world of stamping and crafting! Congrats to these 8 ladies who are joining an already ROCKIN' design team of 12, making that 20 super fabulous designers for The Unity Stamp Co.! --WoW--There is sure to be HUGE stuff from the Unity Stamp Co. in the weeks and months to come!

Now for the surprise...I was asked to be Unity's Guest Designer for rest of June, Yippeeee!!! I entered the design team call, and although I did make the permanent team, I am absolutely delighted to be working with this stellar group of ladies for the next month! I will take a guest spot any day of the week and I am very honored.


To celebrate, I whipped up a couple of cards using some of my favorite Unity stamps! First, I used these lovely blooming buds from the Swinging Swedish set. I think those buds have such a presence! Some Juliette designer paper from The Angel Company coordinated nicely.


This card features the fireworks stamp from the "It's The 4th!" set. I added 3 punched stars to the centers--gotta use those negatives--and the bottom is cut with the Fiskers "regal" decorative scissors. That's all for now! Thank you for visiting me today and allowing me to share my happy news! Hugs!
