The challenge this week was creating a card with Unity stamps that is masculine yet sweet using only pink and brown! It took a lot of thought and planning but some how I came up with this....
This week I've been trying to organize and clean out my craft storage armoire and my desk. Whew! It's exhausting. I need to be more consistent on keeping up with the clutter so this doesn't happen again!

Here's my anniversary card for some special people in my life. I just love the Mr & Mrs stamp from the Unity Sept. Kit of the Month. I embossed it with American Crafts White Zing embossing powder on some black cardstock for this card.
There are so many wonderful stamps in the kit and I can't wait to create some more projects with it.
products used: Unity Sept KOTM, BasicGrey Urban Prairie collection, K & Co. Amy Butler brads, Maya Road chipboard house, American Crafts White Zing embossing powder, Ranger white opal liquid pearls & distress antique linen stickles, Fiskars scallop border punch.

Teresa Collins stamps
These stamps are classic, versatile and have lots of incredible detail. They are rubber cling stamps that you can stick right on your acrylic blocks.
Colorbox Fluid Chalk inkpads
I love the soft effect of stamping with these pads. Joann.com stocks these juicy full size pads in oodles of colors which can be hard to find other places.
Colorbox Cat's eye mini inkpads
The same effect of the large size pads but with a small variety stack of colors. Great for shading and distressing.
Corner chomper by We R Memory Keepers
This corner rounder cuts through anything: acrylic, thick chipboard, metal, many layers of cardstock etc. It is lightweight, feels great in your hand and will do 1/4" and 1/2" edges. Awesome tool that is a MUST have.
American Crafts Zing Embossing Powder
These embossing powders are really wonderful and melt so smooth. The powder picks up the finest details and leaves very crisp images. It comes in opaque, metallic, and glitter finishes in many colors. My favorites are the Black opaque, Clear, White, Copper metallic and Pewter metallic. There are lots of brights to choose from too. The Cricket, Rouge, Gold Glitter and Metallic Blue are on my wish list - great colors for the upcoming holidays!
BasicGrey Element stickers
These stickers create so much beautiful interest on a page or card with ease! I love them.
Unity Stamp Co. stamp sets
I could not believe how HUGE and detailed these rubber stamps were until I opened my first package of them. Great for scrapbooking, cardmaking and all kinds of papercrafts. The Kit of the month sets come in a one 8.5X11 sheet of stamps on cling foam. A real steal with so many versatile images!

These new collections by BasicGrey are really adorable. They are going straight onto my wishlist. The cute little dogs in the June Bug line and the bright raspberry shades in Lemonade pack are my faves.
