Friends of Unity July Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Friends of Unity July Blog Hop. We are featuring a stencil theme this month. I opted to recreate a card I made for a friend who celebrated her birthday in March. We both share a love for Winnie the Pooh and I know she hasn't discovered Unity yet (GASP!!!) so I was certain gifting her both of these stamps would be something she would really like. 

Given the size of this stamp and where I wanted the placement of the sentiment to be, I opted to make this a mini slimline card. This size of card is becoming a new favorite for me as I found that a full slim line was a little intimidating. This is just a little bit bigger than what I was comfortable making, so making use of the extra space was never a worry for me. Pairing this cute stamp with the cloud stencil was a logical pairing as it really gives the appearance of floating off into the sky.

 Hop along with the other Friends of Unity and see what stencils they used for this theme:
Pooh Just Knew (Unity Stamp Company)
How Do You Spell Love (Unity)

Stampers Select White (Papertrey Ink)
Mini Slimline Sidefold Cards in Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)

Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide (Tim Holtz)

Deckle Edge Trimmer (Tim Holtz)
Cloud Stencil (Newtown's Nook)
Copic Sketch Markers

We all on the Friends of Unity design team appreciate every single comment we get.
