Sweet gifts ~ Unity + My Sweet Petunia blog hop

Hi, it's Gaylynn here.  Unity Stamp Co. and My Sweet Petunia are collaborating for the start of the Brown Thursday release and blog hop.
We are also joining forces for a separate insta hop on Instagram.

Sentiment:  Special Delivery.

Lately, it seems that gift cards and cash are what is requested for gifts.  And so I like to dress them up a bit.  I die-cut a little gift box from double-sided paper and then trimmed a piece of paper to wrap around the box.  The wrap portion slides up or down.  The mouse was a perfect decoration for this little gift box.

Here is the gift card holder box video tutorial.

And here is another look.

I also made a holiday angel card with a night scene.

Sentiment:  May your Christmas be a time of joy and peace.

The background was pre-colored using Brusho watercolor.  The Brusho technique can be found here.
For this card, I share how easily stamping can be using the Misti stamping tool.

Here is the holiday angel card video tutorial.

Here is a closer look:

Woodgrain background watercolor flower card.

For Watercolor Wednesday on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to use watercolor along with heat embossing to create a trendy wood grain card background.

Sentiment:  May all your wishes come true.

For this card, I stamped using the Misti stamping tool with VersaMark ink.  I then heat embossed the background with white embossing powder.  I used watercolor and then added the pre-colored flower.

The full article and tutorial are up on the Unity blog.
I also made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Hugs Post-It Note Holder ~ MCT 3-D Wednesday

Today, on the MCT blog, we are sharing 3-D projects.
Here is a fun way to wrap post-it notes for gift giving or for holiday stocking stuffers.

Sentiment:  Hugs

This was fun and easy to make.  I began by die-cutting double-sided patterned paper.  I stamped and cut out the hugs word.  A touch of color was added around the sentiment for accents.  Then everything was assembled.  This will be one of the stocking stuffer gifts this Christmas.

Here is another look.

Supplies:  My Creative Time Note Card Holder Die and Fun Notes; Copic markers, assorted cardstock.

Miss you bird card in Copics.

Today, I am sharing a thinking of you or miss you card with a bird and with butterflies.

Sentiment:  Distance means so little when someone means so much.

For this card, I used simple light colors in Copic markers for the bird.  The background patterned paper and the sentiment were die-cut.  I love the light against the dark background and the simplicity of this design.

Here is another look.
