Friends of Unity December Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Friends of Unity December Blog Hop. We are featuring a glimmer and glitz theme this month. My favorite glimmer and glitz option is heat embossing.

I opted for a clean and simple-ish design that really let the embossing take center stage. At first I colored one of my images, but found that I preferred the simplicity of the all gold image with no distractions. 

Unity is celebrating our 5th anniversary of hopping and is giving away (3) $25 gift cards. The winners will be chosen from those that comment on every blog. You will have until December 10th to get this done and Crystal will announce the winner on USnT on the 11th. Good Luck!!

 Hop along with the other Friends of Unity and see what they created with this theme:

All Kinds of Holiday Love KOM 9/2019 (Unity Stamp Company)
Distressed Dots (Unity)

Classic Kraft (Papertrey Ink)
True Black (Papertrey)


Wagner heat tool
Gilded embossing powder (Brutus Monroe)
Anti-Static Powder tool (Taylored Expressions)

We all on the Friends of Unity design team appreciate every single comment we get.
That's why we use our own stash every month for a giveaway.
We are NOT sponsored by Unity Stamp Co. but, they do approve of our hop, and that make us all very happy.
We started this hop because we love Unity. That's it. This hop is our way of showcasing our cards made with our favorite stamps!!
