Hello… welcome back to another Friends of Unity Blog Hop! Just in time to be inspired for holiday cards and, maybe, to make some purchases during Unity’s Brown Thursday sale! This month our theme is:

I used the Unity stamp, Bright Spirits, which I purchased because one of my friends favorite drinks are manhattans and martinis! Couldn’t resist! First, I stamped the image with Pumice Stone Oxide ink. I used my Schmincke watercolors, mostly, and Arches cold press paper. I must admit I took a little license decorating the ornament with stripes and added gold metallic colors using Kuretake Gansai Starry watercolors. Finally, I also added a bit of metallic green pen and Posca Acrylic white and gold pens. I embossed the sentiment using a very old sparkly green embossing powder and used circle dies. I used a sparkly ribbon, and some random striped paper I thought complemented the colors and ornament design. I added red sequins to finish off the card. This is probably a bit of a strange card… but then… I think it kind of works.
On this second card, I used the same paper and watercolors and the Posca white pen with Christmas Cookies. To add a little more outline definition I used tan, brown, green and red pens. I used a green embossing powder on the sentiment for this one as well. I added enamel dots for cookie decorations and embellishments.
Hope this reminds you of a couple other cute stamp sets to use for the holidays! Thanks for stopping by! And remember to leave a comment with your name! Now on to the rest of the hop!
