Growing In Unity Day 1 - Encompassed Grace by Samantha Walker

***This is my second post for today! Check out my Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday post below.***

Hello, friends! Well, as it turns out I am super excited to get to share with you as this week's Growing In Unity girl! That means that every day this week, I will share a fabulous project (well, I'm shooting for fabulous, anyway! HA!) using FABULOUS (that part is pretty gaurunteed!) Unity stamps and each comment YOU leave on my Growing In Unity posts will be a chance for YOU to win a set of Unity stamps! Yup. Awesomeness all around, folks. Pure and utter Unity awesomeness!

Today, I'm going to share a card with you made with Samantha Walker's Encompassed Grace set. This is one of my FAVORITE sets!

Thank You


The patterned papers are Samantha Walker's Cowgirl line from Creative Imaginations. Funny how the stamps she designs go SO WELL with the paper she designs....hmmm....HA! I stamped the frame image and then cut it out and inked the edges with some distress ink before adhering it to my card with dimensional adhesive. I punched a circle to fit inside the frame and then stamped the sentiment in the center and popped that out, as well. You may recall this card, but I really had to share it again for those who may not have seen it the first time around!

These are the beautiful stamps that I used:


So, don't forget to leave your comment today and come back EVERY DAY THIS WEEK to see more Unity and leave your comments for a chance to win!

Happy Tuesday, folks!

Really is a beautiful card! I love how neatly you cut that out...I'm afraid my skills at cutting are not so hot. But this is a great stamp set:)

I've been a Unity fan for a long time now! What a delightful card creation ... although can I be honest and admit right here and now that I am NOT a paisley fan (the design behind your card) ... they remind me of something I used to see in biology class under a microscope (LOL).
