Unity Challenge Wednesday!

It's the Second Unity Challenge Day today. If you missed it last week, we had a blast! Everyone's cards were fantastic! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this week.


This week's challenge is a Color Challenge hosted by CATDIDIT. The colors she chose are the Unity's Colors. I used the Stampin Up Colors Taken With Teal, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, and Chocolate Chip to make my card. You can play too. Just upload your Unity Color Challenge Card to the gallery using the keyword USC2. You can also post it on your blog and link it in the challenge thread.
I opened my mailbox on Tuesday and what was in there? My August Kit of the Month! I was so excited that I did the Happy Dance. My neighbors think I am crazy- they are right. The reason why I am excited is because there are soooo many stamps in this kit- the possibilities are endless. You should definitely check out September's Kit. Wow!! I can't wait to get that one in my hands.
Ooops...got a little distracted there (new stamps do that to me sometimes, LOL!) My point is that I decided to use the Coffee stamps from August's Kit Remember Happiness for this week's card because Creamy Caramel reminds me of coffee (which I really LOVE):


I stamped the image three times. Once on Creamy Caramel, another on white, and another on Taken With Teal. I then cut out the tablecloth in the Teal image and glued it onto the caramel (main) image. Then I colored in the coffee on the white image and colored the swirly hearts red. JUST the coffee (inside of the cup) was cut out and popped up with dimensionals on the main image. I also colored the spoon with a grey marker and accented with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and cut it out. It is also on dimensionals on my Teal "tablecloth." I added dots to the table with my marker to mirror the polka dots in the Unity banner. I also chose Chocolate Ribbon with Teal dots for the same reason.
Be sure to check out the Unity Challenge Girls' Blogs for more Color Challenge cards. Play along with us on Wednesday and"Indulge" in some Unity stamping. I can't wait to see what you create!
