Day 2 of GIU - Pockets and Wine

Good morning everyone, and welcome to Day 2 of my Growing in Unity week! I'm the Growing in Unity gal this week over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog, which means I'll be sharing a project created with my Unity stamps with you every day. I invite you to come back each day and leave a comment for a chance to be one of the (2) lucky people to win a bag of (25) Unity stamps! Woohoo! If you're new to my blog, I'd love it if you became a follower and join in the fun over on the Caffeinated Papercuts Facebook page or followed Caffeinated Papercuts on Instagram. :)

Have you noticed the Pocket Letter craze taking over right now? This is like pen pals for scrapbookers, folks - decorating little cards, slipping them into trading card pockets, and sending them all over the world. I've created several so far, and this one was all about my love of stamping and a little about me:

I love how these give me more uses for my stamps, and check out that self-portrait on the right - I used Miranda Girl as a "portrait" of me. :)

I used my Spectrum Noirs to color her in, then fussy-cut her out and used removable adhesive to stick her down to the front of the pockets; that way you can still get at the goodies in the back. 

I used a glitter pen for her nail polish, a metallic Wink of Stella for the bangle bracelets, and added Glossy Accents over the wine glass. Little add-ons make such a huge difference!

Thanks for stopping by today! Remember to leave a comment every day this week to better your chances of winning those stamps, and I'll see you tomorrow for Day 3.

Happy Crafting!
