Unity GIU Day 4-sentiments

Today, my GIU post is all about Sentiments : )


 A side view of the shimmer


 This toner sheet was purchased from Gina K, and I used a sparkly red Decofoil on it, also from Gina K.  I sponged on red ink. The shimmery red and the gold cardstocks are Paper Temptress.  The Red frame is cut from a die from MFT. I stamped the sentiment from Full of Merry

A second sentiment from that kit :


For this card, I placed strips of 1/4" double side adhesive tape every 1/4" and alternated the red and gold foils.


 The ruler is a quilting ruler- it has great markings on it for measurements.
On my card, I added a gold frame around the sentiment using a Memory Box stitched die. The leaf die is from Sweet Stamps. I added red Stickles for accent.  There is a Unity Christmas tree stamped in Versamark on the top.

Another toner sheet from Gina K used here:


I sponged on colors in strips in a rainbow theme. The Unity sentiment (from a grab bag) is stamped in purple and embossed in Sparkly EP 


Love the shimmer!

 I decided to add a tied knot instead of this bow, but I have a second bow maker I am going to throw in to the blog candy I am giving away! Plus, some ribbon......

If you leave a comment each day, you will have a chance to win one of two fabulous grab bags of 25 stamps from Unity Stamps!

(And, did I mention I have an item or two to give away as well?  )
