Happppppppppy hopping ya’ll!! Are you joining along in today’s challenge? It happens to be one of my favorites each year Papertrey does it. πŸ™‚ AND we have some fun Easter goodies to share with you today!! Starting with the Big Egg Die, Bunny Blessings, and Egg Stripes.

I created an ombre 3d egg using different colored purple cardstocks and stamped each one differently. I sewed them together using black and white twine and used a Delicate Detail die to accent the top and bottom. It sort of reminded me of one of those really ornate eggs you see at Easter time. πŸ™‚

My next project is showcasing a brand new die set from Lizzie Jones, Bold Borders: Blooming, as well as our very first set from new Product Designer, Jennifer Campbell.

I started by layering two of the border dies off set in Stormy Sea and Dark Indigo. The sentiment is embossed in black on polka dotted vellum and attached to the card using a mini clothespin.

The card is accented with some white thread and seam binding. πŸ™‚

by Stephanie Gold for Unity Stamp Company & MISTI

I created this card using the 2 step flower stamp from Unity called You Are This. I adore the sentiment in this kit as well but I went with a sympathy sentiment from another kit for this particular card.

To create the flower I began by using my Mini MISTI and stamping the 2 step flower petals and leaves. I chose different inks for each stamp (for a total of 4 inks) to really accentuate the extra details.

The added detail in the 2nd step of the flower is so beautiful and distressed that it gives the perfect amount of imperfection for your design. Angie Blom did an incredible job designing this image.

The leaves around my flower are from the Peace, Courage & Memories kit which is also where I got my sentiment “with sympathy.”

Neat & Tangled // Release Week Day 3

releaseweek-01

Ok… How are you all loving this release?? Is Neat & Tangled release week not the best?! Now today I have two projects for you showing off the Scalloped Cover Plate & the Scalloped Stencil!!! I’ve been dying to show you these. πŸ™‚

by Stephanie Gold for Neat and Tangled Scalloped Cover Plate

Starting with the Scalloped Cover Plate… I actually cut off the bottom portion of it to create a cascading effect, but this die is so dang gorgeous you could use it in a ton of ways and it would look beautiful. I REALLY wanted to let the card be all about the cover plate so I left the inside super simple and just added a little sentiment and a flower from a previously released stamp set.

Unity is Hoppin Ya’ll!

Unity Stamp Co Stephanie Gold Golden Simplicity

I don’t know if it’s because I lived in Georgia for a while growing up or what, but I find saying ya’ll terribly fun! Haha. Anywayyyyyyy!! It’s Unity Blog Hop time and I am so excited!! We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway. Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.Β  πŸ™‚ Whoop whoop!

by Stephanie Gold for Unity Stamp Co Company Design Team - Steps of Courage - Sympathy Tag Set - Golden Simplicity

I put together a muted tag set using the Steps of Courage stamps from the new release. Whenever I make something related to sympathy, I always end up using black and white imagery or soft muted colors. Not sure why, maybe it comforts me on some level so I assume it will for others as well. I use sympathy tags to attach to flowers or meals, etc when I need them. Here’s a closer look at each tag:
