In your eyes, I see the doorway to a thousand churches, in your eyes the resolution of all the fruitless searches...

It's almost that time....for the Unity Release Party! Ok, well not almost. But it's closer than it was yesterday! *grin* It starts at 8 PM Central tonight, so be there or be square!

I can show you the full card (since I finished it) that I gave you a peek at yesterday.
I used the ice cream cone stamp from the new release called Mix Up of Cuteness. This is such a fun kit! It's not all ice cream themed, but I promise you will love it. All the images can be colored (or paper pieced, if you prefer), and they're a little smaller in size than Unity's normal stamps. This card measures 4" square, so that will give you some idea of the size.

I stamped the ice cream cone 3 times on hot press watercolor paper (it's sooooo smooth!!). One is the base image, one layer for the cone, and the last for the ice cream, fudge, and cherry on top! Lots of dimensionals gave their lives for this card. I think it was worth it in the end, though. *wink*

The sentiment is from another new kit called Jolly Little Winter, and is actually part of the word "Chilly." The word "just" is handwritten. I thought it was a fun little sentiment for the ice cream.

The next project I did used some of the images from Jolly Little Winter. I used the dancing penguin (doesn't he remind you of Happy Feet? so cute!), masked him, and then stamped the rolling hills on both sides of him.
Inside this little tin is a pair of warm, fuzzy socks to keep warm. I thought it would be a cute gift for a stocking or something like that. This is a nugget tin, so again that will give you an idea of the stamp size.

The sentiment is also from the Jolly Little Winter kit, I just stamped it separately. Penguin dude is colored with Copic markers, and then I added some White Liquid Applique for snow.

So, what do you think? I hope you like what you've seen! I'll have a few more projects to share tonight, along with the rest of the Rockin' Design Team. Angela will also be giving away prizes, and the first 25 orders will receive 25% off! Cool, huh? Hope to see you tonight!
