FWF - May Store kit



It's Friday again which means it's Friends With Flair day woo-hoo!!! Loads of inspiring blogs to visit all listed on the Unity blog so be sure to visit them all, leave some love and keep an eye out for that special blinkie that could win you some stamps!

For my cards today I've been playing with some stamps from the Unity May Store kit - Naturally You and Moments in Bloom. The whole set is probably my favourite Unity kit ever and if you're in the UK it is only available from Emily at Make The Day Special.

My first card is another of my favourite shaped ones to make at the moment as I just love that little bit of interest that the bottom edge gives.
I paper pieced the tree using patterned paper for the trunk but using Promarkers to colour the leaves. The cute little bird was cut from the DCWV paper.

Materials used: Bazzill cardstock, DCWV Green stack papers and chipboard, tree and sentiment stamp by Unity, black Memento ink, Promarkers, Hobby House rhinestones.
Also used: gingham ribbon and pins.

My second card uses the cute tortoise stamp and sentiment from Naturally You. I paper pieced the tortoise using the DCWV papers:

Materials used: Papermill cardstock, DCWV green stack papers, Tortoise and sentiment stamp by Unity, black Memento ink, white Signo pen, Prima flower, DCWV brads.
Also used: pompom trim and button.

As always, thanks for visiting my blog. Your next stop for Friends With Flair is Gwen.
