Friends of Unity October Blog Hop

Welcome to our Friends of Unity Blog Hop! Once again, we’re hopping this month to a new theme called Change. Must admit it’s perfect for this time of year with the beautiful changes this season brings!

As usual, several members will be doing Unity Co. based giveaways this month. I, myself, will be doing a giveaway! All you need to do for a chance to win one of our goodies is to leave a comment on each blog in the hop. We will generally announce the winners on or before next month’s Hop.

Since I just returned from an extended vacation, I made just one card for this Hop, but I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Hope you like it!


I used the Faith Family Fall Kit. I started by stamping and clear embossing the image using Rusty Hinge Oxide Distress ink (and yes, you can emboss oxides!). I first watercolored the image, then added some ink accents and fussy cut it out. I originally had a simpler paper pad in mind, however since the image ended up being more detailed, I decided to combine the image with Prima’s Amber Moon paper. I embossed the sentiment directly onto the paper, and added metallic mesh ribbon, cut out butterflies and crystals.


I really love the soft feel the colors of this card bring to the possibility of change!


Now, onward to the rest of the Hop:
