Friends of Unity, September blog hop!



Oh, how I love some fall cards, I just love the fun fall colors.   I'm about ready to say goodbye to summer.  Although I enjoy being warm and not cold.   I'll miss you shorts and t shirts.  Waving bye sadly!

  So, if your new  here WELCOME, My name is Dawn,  and I love to make cards.  I hope you stop back or give me follow.  I don't post much so I won't bug you to much!


Today I have two cards for you.   One with a bit of a mixed media touch and one that IMHO, is just adorable.  .  We are not sponsored!  Just a group of women who happen to love UNITY!


  This first card was with the new cuddlebug Racoon.  You can purchase it here!  Don't forget to watch for sales.  Unity has sales most every weekend.   I colored him with distress ink Added him to a piece of pattern paper!  Simple card.  Can easily be recreated.   Use up some of that stash of paper you have.  God, knows we all have a ton of it!




  My second card is using the sentiment kit There is no reason.  You can purchase it here!    What I did for this card was stamp the image onto water color cardstock.   I used again distress inks to color to get the center darker I just rubbed the ink pad onto the image.  It gave that cool darker center that i wanted.   I added a pop of orange and some teal for a fun fall look.   For the back ground I sprayed some distress oxide spray onto a kraft panel.   I spritz with water to wake it up.  And then spritz with bronze distress spray.  You cant really see that in the picture but it's' there.   I popped up the flowers (i think they look like big mums)   added a sentiment which I distressed with distress ink so it wasn't so stark white.   Easy elements easy card.  Don't forget to play with what you have.  Get out some of those sprays and make a simple background.  Have fun!

You did a fantastic job on coloring the Cuddlebug raccoon. Such a sweet fall image! The layers of texture and color on the second card came together beautifully.
