Unity Stamp Co. & Susan K. Weckesser Inc. are Hopping with Christmas Ideas

Image (1)
I am SO super EXCITED to Welcome you to our  first ever Susan K. Weckesser Inc. Design Team Blog Hop with Unity Stamp Design Team! 
So…What did I create?
WeckesserUnitybloghop1
I had fun creating some Christmas Cards…in an artsy kind of way. *grin*
Grandmas Needlepoint 1
I LOVE how you can change up colors, textures, and backgrounds when you play with stamps and by doing that you can change the SEASON of the stamp. I used my stamp set, Grandma’s Needlepoint for this card. I even had fun embossing some stitches on the bottom edge of the card. I used some fun, colorful paper from Fancy Pants and made a whimsical greeting card. LOVE the colors…. they make me smile!

Oh…… and don’t forget the SMOOCH from Clearsnap!
One more card using my Susan K. Weckesser co-branded Unity Stamp kit – Autumn Grunge & Painted Sentiments.

I created this card using very neutral colors.

I stamped and embossed some of the leaves on tissue paper from Canvas Corp. I love the effect you get from stamping on tissue. Super cool!WeckesserUnitybloghop5
The beautiful paper that I used is from Fancy Pants and Simple Stories. To add a little extra WOW  to the card I distressed the edges of the paper with some Color Box bronze pigment ink from Clear Snap.WeckesserUnitybloghop6
I used the same ink and stamped a word on tissue paper. Using Helmars Decoupage & Craft Paste I adhered the leaves and word strip down. I also added a few cute red buttons.
