Everything ABC’s Blog Hop ~ Letter U

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “U”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “U” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from DARLYS RECKER’S BLOG then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

The letter U can be a bit UNIQUE in coming UP with design ideas.  So I am going with the UNIQUE factor.  When you watercolor each design is UNIQUE.  So I have a single design using different papers and two different stamps.

natures-wish-moose-guy-birthday-card-catscrapbooking-com natures-wish-elk-guy-birthday-woodgrain-catscrapbooking-comFor these two I used Kraft cardstock and the new woodgrain embossing folder.  I then took bamboo ink to one and Champagne ink to the other and ran my ink pad over the raised surface.
