UNITY and Susan K Weckesser....holiday blog hop!

We are so excited to have you join us today for a special and fun blog hop. It's a 2 day event and I think you're going to LOVE it! We've been working hard to bring you some quick and easy Holiday crafting ideas. 

Oh, we are so very excited you are joining us for our first ever Susan K Weckesser Design Team Blog Hop with Unity Stamp Design Team!


If you are not already a follower, we would love for you to join our families and follow our blogs as well as stay up-to-date by Liking us on Facebook:

During this 2-day hop, you will be inspired and in awe of all the fabulous creations shared by members of these two talented design teams. Both teams will be sharing Simple Christmas Card Ideas using Unity Stamps designed by Susan K Weckesser Inc. It's not too late for Christmas Cards. According to the US Postal service, if you mail your holiday cards by December 20, they will arrive by December 25th! And, this will give you a chance to also join in the Christmas Love Campaign.


So I got busy with this amazingly cute snowman image. You can find him here in the Unity Store. 
He's called: 
One of a Kind Winter
you can find all the Susan Weckesser stamps by Unity HERE!

I wanted to show you how easy a few tags can be to create. They make the perfect accent to any package or gift bag. Heck you could even use these an ornaments to decorate your tree. 

 I stamped them both onto xpress blending cardstock and used my copics to add some shading to the edges of the snow. The green one, I colored his hat and mittens with markers and stamped the sentiment right over top. 

The red one I paper pieced with some holiday papers (Handmade Holiday by Simple Stories). Both images were then cut out with some circle Die-namics and layered onto a Decorative Circle Stax Die-namics and finished off with some twine and buttons. 

I had made three tags total and decided to show you how cute this would be mounted on a card. Easy Peasy! I added some more holiday paper, stitched around the edges and then added the sentiment to a Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics. 



We are giving away two chances to win an amazing prize package containing the entire {newest released} Susan K Weckesser stamps co-branded with Unity Stamps.
