Unity Day 3

>> Wednesday, March 11, 2009

OMG! I am SO sorry for everyone that came by yesterday only to read my babble with no card! I have no idea what happened. I know i was uploading it! But my internet has pretty much been on the fritz since saturday and then late last night it went out completely. I couldnt even sneak my neighbor's wireless to make my posts! ACK! So i had a few phone calls this morning about my boo boo and i couldnt even fix it! hahaha.

I PROMISE to make sure the card is uploaded this time!

Ok - today is day 3 for my week in Unity. If you have no idea what i'm taking about, scroll to the posts below where i explain it all. :) But most important to know if when you leave a comment, you get entered to win a free stamp from Unity! WOOT!

Here is my card for the day...

I had too much fun playing with some techniques for this card! First i stamped this Have a Heart Cupcake onto white cardstock 2 times. One of them i colored in with copics (ok, honestly i only colored the outer edges since i know you wouldnt see the middle) and i colored the base of that one as well. I was being a little quick about it since i was in a time crunch and *GASP* i didnt shade. :) It's just the copic b12 color.
On the other cupcake i took some pink liquid applique (given to me by my wonderful friend jacquie). And i suddenly realized it was gonna take a lot of my precious applique to cover thsi super sized cupcake. So i smooshed it around with my finger. Yes, thats a technical term. :D
So once the whole thing was covered (it took hardly any product since i was smoooooooshing it) i let it sit and took the kiddos out for the day. Then i came home and heated it up with my heat tool. FYI the manufacturers f liquid applique say to leave the product for 24 hours. i rarely leave it 2 minutes because i'm impatient. haha. In this case, because i didnt let it wait terribly long (about 6 hours) and because my smooshing wasnt at all even, there isnt a even level of puff. Which is think is perfect for a cupcake, so yippie me! I cut out the just the frosting part and then used foam to pop it up on top of the other stamped image. I wanted a smidgen something more so i added the pearls. I'm really pleased with the outcome, especially since i had no plans when i started the card! :D

Here is a close up view of the cupcake in all her 3D glory...

So thats pretty much it. The layout is simple enough because i wanted the cupcake as my focus. That and my house was full of mayhem (all mommies know the type) so i was pleased to even get the card done!

Ok, dont forget to check in tomorrow for another unity card (hopefully posted in the AM instead of the PM!) and then tomorrow night at HIP HOP (probably around 6 just before i leave to teach my color class) i'll announce the comment winner!!! :)

Hi Katie,

Well, I got my first order of PMS stamps and I have to tell you I love them and can not wait to be able to order more of them!!!!

I also have to tell you that I got both the e-mail and the reply to my comment at your store last week and it meant a lot what you said to me (Telling the Stamping world to takt that about DT stuff!!!)

You are such a sweetie, and I am so excited to get to start playing in all your challenges and using your stamps.

I used the Quote one I told you about if you remember the one that says

When the World tells you to quit Hope says try it one more time!!!

I love that quote and it goes so well on the card!!!

Thank You Katie for your encouragement and for the person you are I enjoy your blog and your stamps so much and have for almost 6 months now (Well your blog just getting to know the stamps!!!) LOL

Keep up the great work Katie and I am wishing you all the luck in the world!!!

Smooshing and smidgen - love the terms and thanks for shedding some light on Liquid applique technique. I have never heard of this ...I'm off to hunt this down.

PS The peals were just the right touch! Looks lucious enough to eat.

Your cupcake turned out fantastic! I totally need a lesson in liquid applique. It's so intriguing, but I haven't the foggiest idea about how to use/apply it. I like the idea of smooshing!
