Unity and Authentique Hop!






For my project today I used the 'Naughty or Nice' Unity and Authentique co-branded stamp set. I love how they paired a vintage looking santa with the fun tag images. I stamped my santa in versafine red to bring out all the details of the image (click on the pic for a closer view) and only added a bit of glitter to make it pop. I then had fun with the co-ordinating papers and stickers making my quilt style card and matching gift bag. The 'Naughty or Nice' stamp set is on sale right now for only $9.99! 

If you just starting click here to go to the Authentique blog to begin otherwise you should have arrived here from Stephanie's blog. To continue hopping  your next stop is Authentique DT member JJ Sobey's blog. Keep going until you reach the end and leave a comment at all stops to qualify for a variety prize package! We will be giving out one for each day of hopping and winners will be posted on the Unity blog on Saturday. Good luck and I hope you are enjoying all the Unity/Authentique creations!

Cheers, Andrea
