They have invited us along with her design team to play along in their 
Christmas Love Campaign
 to create simple Christmas cards with her stamps,
 sold in the Unity store!

 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.
You can find out all about this campaign here.

Here is the line-up for today!

I've got two cards to share today, one being more of mixed media style, 
and the other - taking a non-Christmas stamp to make a holiday card!

The first is using the cute snowman stamp - One of a Kind Winter.

I thought that it would be so cute to make a fabric snowman out of this stamp.
I stamped it onto various patterned pieces and 'fabric-pierced' them together.
All the pieces were adhered onto each other using Mod Podge,
so the card is very durable and the front is water (SNOW) proof!

I love Mod Podge - it's so fun, and allows me to get creative!
You would not be able to glue like this using a normal glue... 
and a hot glue gun would be disastrous!
 Love the feel of it when it dries, too!

Super cute, right?

The second is using one of my favorite sets from her - A Little Bit Washi.

For this one, I thought that it would be super cute to take some of those strips, 
and putting the shortest washi at the top going down,
 it would make a super adorable Christmas tree!

After stamping with light green ink, 
I machine stitched them onto a woodgrain washi tape.
I finished it off with wooden stars and some colorful buttons :)

This is SUPER easy and SO ADORABLE!

  4. OMG... This is great inspiration. Love the card in fabric and the texture you achieved. I am going to try this. And loved the tree. You won't believe but I have a picture of a xmas tree ornament I saw in a store with the idea to replicate or use as inspiration on paper, and your tree card is kind of something like it. Love also the colors. Awesome. Tks.
