Authentique/Unity Blog Hop

Welcome to the Unity and Authentique Paper Blog Hop...you should have arrived here from Maria Gurnsey's blog if not then head on over to AUTHENTIQUE'S BLOG and start from the very beginning!!!

I love Authentique paper and I love that Unity made stamps to coordinate with the collections that are cling mount rubber...you get the perfect impression every time. These two are a perfect match! The above card is made with Authentique's Journey and Blissful collections with Unity's Splendid Things stamp set.


I made this card with Authentique's Wonder collection and Unity's Wonder of It stamp set.

I used the edge of the map stamp to create a border for this card.

I poured clear embossing ink over the distress ink to give the map dimension.

And here I've pair Unity's On This Journey stamp set with more of Authentique's Journey collection.

Now HOP on over to
