GIU Girl~Day 1



Happy Monday and may this last week before Christmas find everyone healthy, happy and ready for some family time!
I was lucky enough to jump at the chance to fill in for this particular GIU week! I thank everyone over at Unity! Also, I thank MariLynn for giving me the heads up about the opening!

I need to take a break from all things Christmas related, so I decided to use this fabulous Graciellie set called spark. I stamped the butterfly in noir black and watercolored with Zig watercolor brush markers and softened with some water. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the embossing folder I used on the butterfly bg and the copper metallic bg. I rubbed Inka Gold in copper on the butterfly's bg. Stamped the sentiment and news flash!!!! You need to dry the ink on metallic paper! Using my leaf/bird punch from SU!, I punched some leafs and watercolored in the same blue...the matted layer was watercolored as well. Some rhinestones and some sheer ribbon that I distressed with the heat gun and we will call it finished!

Be sure to leave comments every day to be eligible to win a Unity prize pack! One winner will be picked at the end of the week at random.

I am having trigger finger surgery today. I know I am a bit crazy, but our deductible is met! I may be using all gift bags this Christmas!

Have a lovely day!

  9. What a beautiful color combination and I love the bow. Bows are something I am not good at, but using a heat tool to distress it is a great idea.

  18. I'm impressed of how beautiful the card came out BEFORE your finger surgery. I can only hope mine would come out 1/2 as nice and I don't have any finger issues, LOL. Great job and here's to a very quick recovery time for you, new puppy and all.
