Day 5 of GIU - Hope

Good morning everyone, and welcome to Day 5 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. :)

I cannot believe we're on Day 5 already - last post of my week! Get your comments in by midnight TONIGHT, June 26th and I'll be announcing the winners on Monday. Be sure to stop back and see if it's you!

Ok, before you guys grab the pitchforks and torches, this is not necessarily a Christmas card - really! I was thinking Arianna Girl could also be used as a sympathy card or for anyone stressing out and just needing some peace.


I kept her very CAS - white card base, embossed shimmer paper and the sentiment simply stamped in black before I ran it through my Big Kick. Arianna herself was colored with my Spectrum Noirs and the card was sandwiched like so - card base, fun foam, embossed piece, foam tape, Arianna. Loads of interest and dimension without the bulk.

Because the embossed piece is shimmery, I kept the little details simple; clear Wink of Stella to her wings and skirt overlay, and some Glossy Accents on the roses.

Happy Crafting!
