Cyber Monday + New Video!

I hope you have all had a wonderful, family filled Thanksgiving! To finished off that weekend of food and shopping, Unity is hosting a CYBER MONDAY SALE! Hope you saved some money :)

There are a whole bunch of brand new releases that you're gonna want to check out. My personal favorite is "Lil' Smartie Pants" which was designed by the lovely Lisa Arana.

I loved him so much I made two cards! Two circle cards to be exact... and I even threw together a quick tip video for 2 different (but easy!) ways to make a circle shaped card.

It's less than 2 minutes so I hope you have a look! You can always watch it directly on YouTube HERE

Unity is hosting a BRAND NEW TYPE OF CHALLENGE! The Be Inspired Challenge has just one theme, and this month it's all about HOLIDAYS. Any holiday! Make sure you link up your creation for a chance to win one of the biggest prizes of all challenge blogs!

My second circle card is a darling little Valentine card, so it also works perfectly for the brand new Be Inspired Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to continue along with the unity hop for more inspiration :)

Brown Thursday + NEW VIDEO!

Happy one-week-til-thanksgiving AKA BROWN THURSDAY AT UNITY STAMP CO! This is definitely one of THE best sales Unity puts on all year! And to make it even more exciting... there are a ton of brand new releases!

This stamp is "Owl Bundled Up" and is it not the cutest?! I loved it so much I made a little Quick Tip video PLUS a second card with him. As always, you can also watch the video at my channel here.

For my second owl card I used the same background embossed technique as the first card. I made this one more rustic and classic. Both owls are colored with Copic markers.

The next stamp will definitely be popular this week! You can't go wrong with an old truck and a Christmas tree!

A teal truck with wood paneling?! So cute! I colored this image with Copic markers and matted it several times onto the card front. I stapled the Pine Bough along the bottom for some added umph :)

Again, for card 2 I went rustic... deep reds and browns. Similar coloring to the first one, just a couple shades deeper all around.

NOW... the Brown Thursday sales!!! Hope you're sitting down...

YES THAT DOES SAY 60% OFF SITEWIDE! Use the code 60THANKS at checkout! And the wonderful Angela is donating $1 from every single order to Rice Bowls charity!

p.s. I just created an rwkrafts facebook page! Check it out!

Thanksgiving Week Day 5 - Texture

Welcome to the last day of our 5 for 5 Thanksgiving Blog Event! Today our theme is "Texture". Each day our 5 Designers will post a Thanksgiving Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the links below and leave comments!

Texture texture everywhere! There is a lot packed into this card so I'll jump right in...

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die in two different ways. I used them to die cut out of DCWV Woven Texture paper and Distress Inked them. I also used them as an embossing tool for the background. I then watercolored the imprinted leaves with my Peerless Watercolors.

The background is my favorite part of this card and I will definitely be using that technique more!

Now it's time to visit the other designers! Have fun!
