GIU Blog Hop


Welcome to Unity's Growing in Unity Blog Hop! If you are following the order, you should be coming from Julissa's blog. If not, below is the list so you can hop along and visit each one of us. Be sure to leave a comment. Unity will be choosing 2 winners to win one of two Unity filled prize packs.

Now, on to my card. My son's birthday is in a few weeks. So I wanted to make a card for him. It is not a typical birthday card, but, it's true! I like him more than ice cream.  He just love colors. I just had to use one of Unity's paper packs Rainbow Vibes. I mean, could this paper be more adorable?! My son LOVES ice cream too so the choice of paper from the pack was pretty obvious. I used a stamp from the Kit of the Month Kit Sweet Summer Love from June 2012. It's an oldie but it has great timeless images and sentiments. That ice cream truck, I just love it!. I used Copics to color the image. Added some dots using regular glittered glue and, of course, used Glossy Accents too. The die used is from Gina Marie. 

Well thank you for visiting me. Next on the Hop is Michelle so be sure to stop there and leave a comment too. Here's the full list in case you get lost or missed some one.

Succulent Celebration


Bittersweet day... Today's my last Growing in Unity day but it is FRIDAY!!!! WOOP WOOP
This week was my son's first week of school so we are getting use to getting up early again and the school routine. Although I like how much you can get out of the day when getting up early, my body is not a "morning body" LOL

Now to crafting and what you're really here for. Today's card features the June 2016 Unity Sentiment kit Succulent Salutations. I got it recently and hadn't inked it yet. Why did I wait so much to get this set, I have no IDEA! The image is cute and I love the variety of sentiments. It has a sentiment for each occasion.

For this one I used Kraft cardstock as base. Die cut one side for the design. The images are colored with Copics. I used Glossy Accents (of course), glitter glue on some details. I used Sprinkles, spring assortment from Doodlebug Design Inc. Although most have moved on to other embellishments like Nuvo Drops, I still love these type of enamel dots. Plus I have a lot of it, so I'll keep using it! Can we call it "vintage" embellishments? What's your favorite embellishments that are "oldies" but you still like to use? Comment below. I'd love to read your responses. I'll be choosing two random winners for some Unity Stamp Co stamps next week. So stay tuned for the announcement here in my blog and on the Growing in Unity Facebook page. Also, please follow me on my Facebook fan page Maia Ink to follow my crafting journey. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and thanks to Unity Stamp Co for this opportunity

Sweet Thank You - GIU Day 4


Welcome to day 4 of my week at Growing in Unity from Unity Stamp Co. Today's card is very sweet :D It features 2 sets: I Like Donuts and ...Say it Big. Both sets are on sale right now!!!! Who doesn't love donuts? In Puerto Rico you could say there's a donut fever at this moment. Several artisanal donut shops and food trucks have opened recently. My favorite so far is a food truck called Wood Doughnuts. Their bacon donut, delicious!!!! Ok, back to the card. I'm getting hungry just typing LOL.

For this card, I repeatedly stamped the image from "I Like Donuts". Before coloring it, I heat embossed the "thank you" from "Say it Big" with black embossing powder. Then I colored with Copics. Added Glossy Accents to the glaze of most donuts for a realistic look. As you can see so far, I LOVE Glossy Accents and I think I forever will! I added colored twine on the top to complete the look. I'm in love (and hungry) with the final result. It was hard to capture the gloss from the card in the pictures so below more close ups.

A Close up

The gloss was hard to photograph. Here's another close up.
