Sassy Unity

Time for another Friends With Flair and I teamed up my Unity stamps with this weeks Get Sketchy challenge:

For my card I used the fabby Sassafras Mix and Mend papers and some Unity Stamps (the Stampin Store Kit - Life Becoming and Quiet Essence) which are on sale right now at Scrap-Mart.  This is also for the Moxie Fab paper piecing challenge.


I also used my Sassafras Papers with this weeks Limelight sketch, with a twist of string.

This weeks Tuesday Trigger:  I used this inspiration for the next 2 cards.

I was inspired by the Shabby Feel and the knit throw.  I used the LeChic set for this one.  The buttons are CTMH.  I also cut up a thrift store sweater and used a piece as a border strip.

Finally, this fun card.  I incorporated the Tuesday Trigger and the Moxie Fab Decorative Tape challenge.  The sentiment is from the June 2010 KOTM from Unity and the cup is from There She Goes.  I made a 'coffee cozy' from the sweater.  The pattern paper is from Crate Paper.

This is also for the Shabby Tea Room Challenge - keeping you warm:




Be sure to start out at the Unity Blog and see what everyone has done this week.

3 great cards, I love the first on! I had to zoom in to get all the details, so awesome! I love the patterned papers you used to paper piece the flower and leaves, the stitching looks beautiful and the placement of the doily really works. You rocked this one Laurel.

Jeanne said...

Holy Moly, Laurel. You definitely were on fire for these three cards. Love the idea of cutting up a sweater to add elements and texture to the cards. Terrific stitching adds a great touch, too. Awesome!
