Unity Fun

Hello all! My sweet brother (click HERE to see a picture of us together) got me an assortment of Doodlebug Designs crushed velvet flock for my birthday and I have been experimenting with it over these past few days. It took awhile but I think I am getting the hang of it and I have three cards using my Unity stamps (of course!) that I wanted to share with you today. First up is my personal favorite using stamps from Unity's Flirty Flowers set.

For this card I first stamped each circle in the same color ink that I was going to flock it with. Then I used a glue pen to carefully go over all the dots on the stamped image and added the flock. I also used flock on the 'Hello' sentiment.

This next card uses stamps from Unity's Eco Chic set. I love using SU Naturals ivory cardstock and natural fibers with these stamps. The thick twine is from May Arts.
Since this tree image is open I filled the leaves and trunk/branches with glue and then added the flock. I also added flock to the leaves in the 'eco chic' sentiment.

Finally is a card using my first and still favorite Unity set, Gratitude=Joy. The thanks sentiment is from the Flirty Flowers set. I created this card for the SCS Clean and Simple challenge this week which was to find an inspiration piece from the Robeez site. HERE are the shoes that inspired me...I loved the soft colors against the white background. Here is my card:

For this card I went out and bought my first glue pad which I found worked much better for flocking a larger, solid image. Thanks for visiting today! I appreciate all your comments and any flocking tips if you have them! :)

Tomorrow is Unity's Hip Hop day...check out Angela's blog in the morning for the blog hop and specials and then stop by the Unity forum to chat and maybe even win a stamp or two! :)

What a sweet bro you have. Love all your cards and the flocking is just awesome. I want to get some of this fun stuff. I'm going to miss Hip Hop tomorrow. :( My DH is graduating from Creative Circus in Atlanta, GA Friday, so we are leaving tomorrow for the road trip. Yes I was going to take my laptop, but DH decided to touch it...which means it's dead now. Have fun at Hip Hop tomorrow.
