Webster's Pages and Unity Stamp Co. Hop!

Happy Thursday to you! Today Unity Stamp Co. has paired up with Webster's Pages to showcase their beautiful new collection of paper and stamps called Girl Land!

I had an amazing time creating this card using Webster's Pages stamps to create the patterned paper and flower.
I loved making this card because I stamped then embossed the papers before I used them. Super fun technique! There's just something magical about using a heat tool! I even embossed the sentiment frame! LOL!

Supplies Used: Webster's Pages stamps. Unity Stamps, Bazzill Cardstock, Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx by Clearsnap, Clearsnap Embossing Powder, Fiskar's Border Punch, Donna Salazar Rose Creations Die Cuts by Spellbinders, Small Frames Chip Art by Melody Ross, Offray Ribbon, Jewel by BoBunny, Pearl Pin by Hydrangea Hippo

Both Unity Stamp Co. and Webster's Pages are giving away prizes today, so be sure to post on both blogs for a chance to win!

Now I'm sending you on to my talented design team sistah Jolande! Enjoy the rest of the hop and have an amazingly blessed day!
