Punny Days at Unity!

Valentine's Day is creeeeeeping up on us and it'll be here sooner than you think! Unity is prepared with a bunch of brand new PUN stamps and overall adorable itty bitties. You'll definitely find something you NEED to buy this week, I know it!


I was searching for a stamp and sentiment just like this one about two weeks ago... for my father in law :) It may be too late to give to him, but this card is ready for the next birthday in line! (sorry, mom!) I love the adorable skunk and all of his witty sentiments that he comes with.


To create this card, I started with a square card base from grey cardstock and layered two squares of patterned paper from Crate Paper "Kiss Kiss" collection. I tied a gorgeous black and white ribbon from May Arts to give the skunk something to stand on. The skunk is colored with Copic markers and popped up with foam adhesive. Finally, I splattered the card with my Gold Wink of Stella glitter pen.


I ADORE these adorable birdies. They are so cute and perfect for so many different occasions. My little birdies are dangling in the night sky, watching the stars and hoping Mercury falls out of Retrograde soon ;) All while welcoming new comers to their hood!


To create this card, I started with a standard A2 size card base in navy blue. I layered the star pattern paper from Crate Paper "Kiss Kiss" and then added two squares (see how similar the design is to the skunk card. easy peasy!) of DCWV Glitzy Glitter paper and DCWV Foiled Vellum paper. The birds and the sentiment were colored with Copic Markers and I added some light blue rhinestones to finish off the card.


This is a FUN PUN sale all weekend long! Of course there are plenty of other stamps on sale, so be sure to browse the shop to find what you need!

  13. Your cards are great but the skunk one really hits home since I will be 68 in less than 2 weeks. Thank Heavens my hands still work because the rest of me isn't so hot! Creating is a wonderful way to keep one's mind off aches and pains and disintegrating joints!
