Unity Hop: Winter Greetings

Hey everyone!

Happy Thursday!! It's HOP time again with Unity which means tons of inspiration from the design team and of course a SALE! You should have arrived here from Angie's blog. If not be sure to hop back to the Unity Blog and start from the beginning. Here's the whole line up for you in case you get lost:


This week there aren't any new releases at Unity, instead they are focusing on offering an amazing SALE! So for my project this week I decided to show off the AMAZING October Kit of the Month:




Check out what I created:



I used square dies to cut out my window, then I stamped the trees on clear acetate and adhered that to make the glass in the window. Next I stamped the trees again on a plain piece of white cardstock and colored the background in with my copics. I created the snow by using my colorless blender and dotting randomly around the scene. Finally I stamped the light bulb on clear acetate, colored them with my copics, and strung them across my card with some twine!



Alright, are you ready for the awesome SALE? Check out the banners below and CLICK to shop!





Don’t forget to leave a comment on all the participating blogs. We'll be giving away a fabulous Unity PRIZE to comments left on each of the blogs!!! THREE winners will get to choose TWO sentiment kits!!


Alright sweet friends, it's time to hop on over to Erin's blog!


Big bloggy hugs <3
