Spellbinders and Unity Two day Event




Welcome to our TWO-day event!  




You should be joining me from (      Tina MaCDonalds        )’s blog, if not then head to the beginning at the Unity Stamp Co. blog.

With all the blog-swaps that are happening out there lately, I can't think of one more exciting than when the amazing women of SPELLBINDERS get together with the rockstars of UNITY STAMP COMPANY!

We can't wait to show you a special line of coordinating products featuring SPELLBINDERS dies and SAMANTHA WALKER for Unity Stamp Co. rubber stamps!  
Not only are we thrilled to be collaborating on such a special 2-day event, but ONE of you will win ALL of the coordinating stamps and dies from the Samantha Walker collection!  We will also have 1 winner each day from the comments that will receive 1 Samantha Walker stamp set and coordinating dies.
So be sure to enjoy our hop both days, leave comments on all of the blogs each day and check back to see if you won!
(winners will be posted on Wednesday, October 19th on the Unity Blog and Spellbinders Blog)

for my post today I got to use
"Ornate Artisians"
a fabulous set from Samantha with lots of fun shapes AND sentiments
and the dies that work with it are some of my favorites
all kinds of shapes and sizes! LOVE
I went a little clean and simple on my card, with some white and kraft, love that combination and am pleased with the effect :)
I just had to add that I LOVE how nice Unity stamps are cut out!  I was able to eyeball the stamps and line them up almost perfectly (while standing) easier for me than stamping first! 
try it!

Now please head over to (  Beth Pingry            )’s blog….
In case you get lost along the way, please visit the Unity Stamp Company blog for a list of all the blogs in today’s blog hop!
