BIG and small {Growing In Unity: Day 3}

Welcome to day 3 of my week as the Growing In Unity gal!

Stay tuned each day this week as I show you something I've created using stamps from Unity Stamp Company...and be sure to comment on all five of my Growing In Unity posts this week if you want a chance to win some free stamps!

If you are new here or aren't already a follower: I'd love to have you follow my blog!
If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you!

I've got two projects to share with you today. The first is this tag created with Celebrate BIG and Grandma's Doilies:
I started by cutting two tags from white cardstock, one large and one small. I stamped Grandma's Doilies on the large tag and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Once the embossing was set I misted over it with two colors of mist and then wiped off to reveal the resist. I then layered the smaller tag on top which I stamped with my Celebrate BIG sentiment. I used an eyelet and twine to adhere them together.

Next up is a small card.
(It is approximately 2 1/2" x 3".)
The card base is created using the zebra frame from the {aBIT} of Insta-Frames kit that I created. I cut out the center picture-portion of the frame and added some vellum. I then stamped the hearts from the Jars of Love x 3 on the vellum. I love making mini cards, and the Insta-Frames are perfect for that.

Thanks for stopping by today - and don't forget to leave a comment so you can win some stampy goodness!
