Unity is giving away a full year membership for Stamp of the Week to two lucky commenters...so be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the hop (including the Unity Stamp Company Blog)...you don't want to miss this one!

The Cards:
I've created two cards for today's hop featuring the stamp I created for the new Artista quote kit, Lasting Thoughts.

The first is a simple one...just stamp, add twine, and adhere to the card:
Of course, I also wanted to color in the rose...so I did:
I'm very excited about teaming up with the other Artistas for the new quote kit and I hope you are excited about this kit, too!

Lovely cards. Keeping the stamped image simple in black in your first card makes it stand out wonderfully against your colorful bg.
