Rest, Be Still, Breathe

Happy Saturday!!!  It's a beautiful day out today!  There are so many things to enjoy about Saturdays and one of them is the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  I enjoy looking at a photo and allowing it to spark creativity so the IC challenge is the one for me!  This week it's my turn to challenge us.  Splitcoaststampers is a free site open to everyone with daily challenges, personal galleries, tutorials and much more. Just click here to check out today's IC653 challenge.  If you stop by let me know, I am ohmypaper! over there!!!

I am a big fan of Unity Stamp Co. for their unique designs.  I love hanging out at Unity Stamp Co Show & Tell on FB and I love watching Angela and Whitney's videos at Unity Stamp Co FB.  Angela and Whitney are warm, funny and inviting.  I love to catch the sales at Unity which is what I did with the stamp kit I am featuring today.  I purchased three Truly Rest kits while it was on sale and sent them to my friends, Janeen and JoAnn.  We decided to create two cards each and then have a reveal day.  It was a lot of fun seeing how differently we all used the same stamp.  
I just noticed that the kit is back on sale this weekend so if you like it.....

The gold in the photo inspired me to open up a jar of gold paste and distress the edges of my layers.  I also dabbed a bit over the feathers once they were colored.  One of the mugs has a gold and blue feather so I used that as inspiration for my coloring.

For my next card, I went for an even cleaner look, I used the same Copic markers as above, coloring the leaves yellow gold but the feathers completely blue.

Thanks so very much for stopping by today!


  1. Two beautiful cards - really love the one with the feather all in blue

  2. Such a vision this card is! I love the bold blue - it’s such a lovely contrast against the white card stock. Such a joy to see the triple cards that you’re making with your besties- that’s always a joy!

  3. Oh what gorgeous cards Angela - love the one with the bi-coloured feathers - that is really eye catching


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
