Growing in Unity, Day 5

Last day as Growing in Unity gal!
Since today is also Friends With Flair I made a few different cards to share.
For this first one I tried a new technique that I saw a few days ago. Basically you take a stamp and stamp the image on the back side of your dp and then cut it out. And here is the card I made and the stamp I used:


Supplies:
Unity "All You Need" kit
Unity Folk Inspired" kit
Basic Grey "Out of  Print"
Hero Arts "Petite Print background stamp
Spellbinders lacey ovals

My second card is made with one of my favorite stamps of the week stamps, I just love this owl, and find myself using this stamp all the time.
I cut the card using spellbinders and then tied the postal twine around it, I was just going to add the cut out owl on top, but wanted him to stand out more, so I added a square of white paper behind him.

And last I have this pretty pink & grey card that I made with a stamp from the "Oh La La" kit and Echo Paper.

Now that this week of GIU is over, I guess that there is no longer an excuse for not organizing for our move in a month, oh wait, tomorrow is my birthday, so no working around the house tomorrow, right? I will probably take the kids out to eat, and spend the day just having fun with them. Second to last birthday in our family before my husband comes home from Iraq, YAY!!!
Thank you for stopping by, and do leave a comment on this post for your chance to win two Itty Bitty stamps of your choice from Unity! I will announce the winner tomorrow.
