Etsy Cards

Hello Unity fans!
Tonight I'm sharing the petite 3" x 3"
note cards for my Etsy shop.
I like to hand write a small note to
each buyer & show that a little extra
time goes into my sales.  
I value each customer.

This VINTAGE OFFICE stamp set is one of my favorites!
It looks cute with a variety of Washi tape, don't you think?

Hi everyone. It's nearly Thanksgiving, 
so I'm loading a few cards for all the 
blog lookers scanning for ideas during 
the holiday break!

This mailbox stamp from Unity Stamp Company
is so darling. It's called Sending My Love.
 I just love to color it.  The stamps
is SO cute, it doesn't take a lot of embellishment
to make the card appealing.

Here is a thanks card,
using some old Cosmo Cricket 
paper.  The stamp is also Unity brand.
Aren't the colors fun?

I love a good java card,
since my craft booth is at a coffee shop!
Check out this cute stack of cups...

This is from the 6/14 kit of the month
at Unity Stamps.

I hope you have a great holiday!
Thanks for browsing here.

Flower Spray

I'd like to share a few cards made with Unity's Bunches of Love.  I love this flower spray design & the sentiments fit right inside the open space.  It's fun to color the flower with Copics & add a little glitter.

F.J. #5

Well, I must be warmed up because this tag turned 
out to be my favorite so far! I'm making tags to enter
This is tag #5, and a very masculine style.

I didn't have the same die cut as Linda used 
on her tag, so I used a gentlemen stamp instead.
It is from a set purchased at her

Isn't it funny?
Honestly, I thought this man
stamp would NEVER get used.
But those little fussy cut holly &
berries just scream "JOLLY".

I used a stencil & Iced Spruce distress ink
to make the starburst background.
Using some black Stickles, 
I smear that glitter glue from the outside
edge inward to make a distressed 
sparkle.  It gives the otherwise 
bold & simple tag a little glitz.

Don't forget to be JOLLY this coming holiday season!

F.J. #4

This next tag entry for the Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas
turned out very country style!

I liked the deer & holly featured on Linda's tag.
My holly stamp is from her Funkie Junkie Boutique.
However my stamp set came with a matching die set.
My Simple Saying stamp is also available there too.
The ric rac, original manilla background, gingham 
ribbon & distressed edges were all inspired by her 
tag as well.

F.J. #3

I'm glad you're here to see my tag #3

This tag mirrors the Funkie Junkie's 
embossed edges, snowflake background & 
large focal point.

The bell die and sentiment stamp are both

I love how the edge sparkles & 
will be using this technique more often!
What a great idea.

F.J. #2

Howdy Folks!
It's time for my second tag creation

I was GREATLY inspired by Linda's 
use of stencils & stamped sentiments
all around the tag.  My tag also features 
a darling little bow & a tree!
The faux shabby stitching was 
added with a brown pen.

and Simple Sayings, which were purchased 

Are you getting in the Christmas spirit yet?
It's a bit early, I agree.  But people always 
adore handmade tags, so it's time for me to
stock up!

F.J. #1

I'm starting a whirlwind of entries for the Funkie Junkie 
Twelve Tags of Christmas! I am starting very late.
I had a great time last year & always ended up inspired &
productive.  Here is my first (warm up) tag:

I was inspired by the example's mail stamp and
you can see my design layout is somewhat similar.

was purchased at the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll check all my
tag entries!  I encourage YOU to join this fun
challenge. It's great motivation!
