Spellbinders & Unity 2 day blog hop

Welcome to day one, of the two day hop!


You should be joining me from Jessica’s blog, if not then head to the beginning on 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 rock stars 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)

Here is my project that I made for today's blog hop.  I paired stamps from the Unity Blossom Stackers with the Spellbinders Blossom Tags & Accents.  The Blossom Stackers stamp set, is a HUGE set, so it took a little bit to have my OCD mind settle on one theme/idea.  What I really am drawn to about this set, it how it works for both scrapbookers & stamper/card makers.  Now add all that awesomeness to the fact that there are dies that perfectly coordinate...perfection!  
I am not talented enough to mix lots of pattern paper together, as much as I would love to have that talent, it just isn't my forte.  So, I new this would be layered, but clean looking.  I didn't do anything too fancy, I stamped, I die cut, then layered the pieces with foam tape. These sets are that easy.
