Unity {be inspired} Hop

Hi Everyone!  
Back in June/July one of my cards won the {be inspired} Challenge 
which happens monthly over on the Unity Stamp Company Blog. 

Thanks to my win, today I am joining the wonderfully talented 
Unity Stamp Company Designers
 as a Guest for the Unity {be inspired} Hop.  




The hop starts over on the Unity Blog here

and then on to
Danie (That's Me)

Simply by hopping and leaving a comment on each stop along the way 
you will be in the running to win a great prize.


WHAT INSPIRED ME!
The inspiration photo above screams Autumn to me, 
and the butterflies on the card sketch caught my eye also.
  Contemplating the color palette I also thought
it would be perfect for a male card.  


Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere signifies Thanksgiving, 
so my first card had being grateful in mind.
This card uses the inspiration colors and card sketch.

Supplies:  Paper - Basic Grey, Cardstock - Stampin' Up!, Stamps - Unity Blessings Stamp from Feb 2012 SMAK Kit & Butterfly from April 2011 KOTM, Other:  Chalk - SU, Flower Bling, Striped Ribbon - Pink Paislee

 

My second card incorporates the inspiration colors, has lots of butterflies 
and uses the cracked glass technique. 

Supplies: Cardstock - Quill, Stamps - Unity Dream Big Itty Bitty, Other:  Gelatos - Faber Castell, Clear UTEE Embossing Powder, Striped Ribbon - Pink Paislee, Twine and Button



My third card once more incorporates the inspiration colors 
and was made with a male recipient in mind.

Supplies:  Paper - Basic Grey, Cardstock - Quill, Stamps - Unity Candles and Cake (Wit and Wisdom) Itty Bitty, Other:  Gelatos - Faber Castell, Black Ink and Embossing Powder, Ric Rac.


So are you feeling inspired yet?  
There's heaps more wonderful inspiration to follow.


Your next stop on the Unity {be inspired} Hop is the very talented Angie Blom

Thanks for stopping and have fun hopping.
