Happy Camper

Here's a CAS card from Unity Stamps.  I loved this stamp so much that I got it twice, lol.  Needless to say, it's one of the prizes.  I do love it though and thought I would share this card to inspire and give ideas with one of the prize items.  Unity stamps is probably the red rubber stamp company that I buy most often now.  I do use a lot of digi stamps.

Question of the day:  other than dies that match the stamps, what are your favorite die theme topics?
animals? flourishes? frames? words? flowers? Disney? people?

I seems to use a lot of nestabilities type (large frame type die cuts), I love skulls and have a whole collection of them, as well as cute animals.

Have you checked the winner list today?  click here  Did you sign up on the previous days?  Be sure to leave a comment on the 1st, winners are chosen from that day each day of the month.  No winners have been chosen from Feb 6th-11th yet

I have some Unity stamps and they all are so beautiful, love this Happy Camper card!
I always love to work with my own die cut handmade flowers to match with my topic and stamping if required!

Cute, cute card!!! I love dies and use them a lot to put sayings in! I don't have any cat or dog dies and have been asked to make some pet sympathy cards for friends.

Audrey R said...

I love the way you layered the frame on top! I have never thought to do that!!

Gaye Valle said...

I can relate to getting the same stamp twice. I have a scrapping friend and we share our duplicates. I really like Unity Stamps. My Bible journal is done with them. I like flowers teamed up with dies and animals, too.

Linda Simpson said...

OMG i love Love love this card! The camper os so fun! Makes me want to jump in and go camping! Great color scheme! As for the question of the day, I love flourish dies and flowers - But flourishes are my #1 favorite!

Susan T. said...

Such a cute card! I like the nesting frames, masculine, and flourishes - actually, just about anything but scary/creepy.

Blue Kube said...

I can see why you bought this twice! I'm not a camper, but as a figure of speech, this is pretty cute! I would say I use my nested dies the most, then words, hearts & flowers.

Rachel Gillham said...

I love this card, and that caravan is just too adorable! I too am guilty of buying stamps I like more than once! oops ��

Sandra said...

Adorable card and stamp!! Love it!
I use frame dies the most, and yes, the nestabilities are great!!! Love their frames.

Lisa Terry said...

Cute card.
I love Unity Stamps.I don't have a lot, but I love them.
I probably lean toward Christmas die themes.

rachel duong said...

I just love this happy camper card! The camper is so much fun and the sentiment is just so happy!! I love the way you colored it and the patterned paper behind frames it so well.
I like word dies alot and how they really complement a card!

Candy Meyers said...

Another cute image. My favorite dies are florals, butterflies, and flourishes. I guess I don't do cutsie and things like that.

Gail Cove said...

I love how cute that camper came out! I like word dies. I think the pop on a card's background!

Carolyn Hollingshead said...

I love Unity stamps and camping! My favorite place to make cards is in my RV when we are camping. I wish you a super speedy recovery!

Denise Bryant said...

Sweet card! I love Unity stamps... they have so many awesome designs!
Butterflies and flowers are two categories of dies I love! Also snowmen!

Lee Tucker said...

I love your card and the stamp, but I would have to add a flamingo to it. Lol
I would say my favorite would be the flourishes because that's what I have the most of although I'd love to have more florals.
Thanks again to you and the sponsors for this giveaway.

SHartl said...

Eeek! That little camper is so darn adorable Holley! The way you colored it up makes it even more sweet. I like nested dies that can be used on a lot of different designs, like the ones by Sizzix and Spellbinders. I make a lot of cards for boys and men so sets like the Sizzix Pierced rectangles that I saw in one of your previews, dog dies, flamingos, nature dies like leaves and flowers, etc. are my favorites. I don't usually use word dies because they're too hard for me to glue to cards, so I tend to use stamps for my sentiments.

jane stillman said...

This is a gorgeous little card - used to love staying in a caravan for my holidays as a child. I do love flourishes and nested dies because they are so useful xx

Jen R said...

I like scenes.... Prayers for your health.

Vannessa Osbourn said...

Unity is for sure my go to stamp company. So many beautiful stamps for every occasion. I use my nested dies a lot and am wanting a few more shapes with stitching. Hope you are feeling better and make a complete recovery!

Amy said...

That is SO CUTE - love the colors! I've been trying to get my hubby to buy a camper for about 2 years - he just won't give in. I LOVE Unity - I've been hooked on buying the ANGIE Girls lately and some with scriptures - but honestly - I would love to have about 75% of the stamps they have! Hope you continue to heal & take care!! Happy Stamping!!!

Jean said...

So cute! I love flower and word dies! Love Unity!

Jhays said...

This camper is on my wish list. i love it. This CAS card is great inspiration. Congrats on your successful surgery! Gos is good!

Kathryn Eddy said...

I keep eyeing that stamp at Unity. My husband and I travel in a motorhome when we can and it would make a nice addition to my Unity collection. Your card is precious!!

Karenladd said...

Could that card be any cuter? I think not!! I have a lot of Unity stamps, but this is one that I would love to add to my stash. The dies that I go to over and over again are the nesting dies but I also love animals, masculine themes like gears or nautical, foliage and leaves or trees, and am always on the lookout out for sewing themes.

Barbara H said...

I just finished reading your story and I think it’s gracious of you to share it so openly. It’s wonderful that you can now lead a more normal life and enjoy so many things that most of us take for granted. I really like your camper card.

Linda Dicks said...

Now you're talking. UNITY. Not sure which group I have more of ... Whimsy or Unity. But Im pretty sure Unity wins. I just can't seem to pass up on their sales. They have so many sales, that I might have to come out of retirement to support my addiction ....lol

Mel C said...

Great card, I don't think I have any of their stamps, I'll have to check them out! I love using Stitched Frames, nestabilities sets, don't have many fancy frames yet.

Anonymous said...

Happy for this succes!!! Very very cute creation!! Sorry, I try but can't comment on your blog. Helle Chiasson unity show and tell group Facebook

cjknick said...

That stamp is darling as is the card. So bright & cheery. Congratulations on your successful surgery. My favorite dies are the frame type or overlay with nature scenes. Thanks for the chance to win ❤️

Dana M said...

What a sweet and fun card, beautiful coloring! I use a lot of frame dies, sentiment dies and cover plates.

StampNK said...

This is a really cute stamp that would be fun to color. Unity has some of the best images and sentiments! I like frame dies, nested dies, nature and animal themes, and dies that can be used for either a man or a woman. Die cuts are a quick and easy way to make a project look great.

Frances Freeman said...

I really love the shape dies where you can make perfect layers!!!! I love the trailer it is adorable!

KarinsArtScrap said...

Sylvia Ames said...

This is such a fun stamp for holiday times, especially for caravanners. Not sure which dies are my favourites, the ones used the most are my frame dies and flowers.

Kathy said...

Love this Holley. Love the clean and simple design - its just perfect

jeanchaneyaz said...

LOL! My friends benefit from my double purchases all the time! I have a Scan n Cut, so the dies I like best are frames, edges, and shapes.

Pat said...

I don't often use rubber or acrylic stamps any more, but dies, ooh! Your card is so sweet! I have some Nestabilities. I have to be careful about buying dies as I only have one machine and it takes the thin dies only. But I love seasonal dies, and those that I can nestle behind a sentiment or image peeking out.

Rhonda Miller said...

I love your card. I like shape dies, interactive dies, flowers and scene building dies.

Melodyscraps, mixed media goddess said...

Cute card!

I don't actually have a favorite company. I shop more by subject than by company.

Melodyscraps, mixed media goddess said...

Ack...I answered the wrong question. I like giraffe stamps best. lol I also like butterflies, flowers and some odd images. I have begun to get some multi-layer stamps, and they are fun. I would love to get some peony stamps.

Gail Hutchinson said...

Great card and favourite dies - flowers, words and flourishes

Vivian Foo said...

Cute card! I do not own any dies but I do like dies with creepy theme for backgrounds.

Em Louise Fairley said...

Cute card, Holley. I love background dies xoxo

Shelley said...

Love this one! So pretty. I will have to pop over and look at the Unity line of stamps. I guess my favorite dies would be ones to go with my favorite themes in stamping. Tropicals, beachy, mermaids, witches, skulls are among my faves. I do a lot of realistic faces, but don't imagine there are any dies that would go with those.

Cindy Holmes said...

CUUUUUUUTE CARD! HMMMMMM my favorite dies other than ones that have matching stamp sets would have to be word dies! They just add so much character to the cards!

Sindhu said...

So cute ..my favourite dies are word, flourish and flowers...

Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw said...

Such a cute image! I'd have to say....Butterflies! :)

barbara macaskill said...

Animals, words, nature and Nestabilities are some of my favorite stand alone dies to use! I absolutely love making nature scenes on canvases and cards!
Your card is so pretty! TFS!

Gwyneth said...

I love your happy camper card.

I like a variety of floral dies, butterflies, vegetation, trelises, and nesting dies that are a bit more fancy that can be used for matting and layering.

Lucie Horowitz said...

Your card is adorable, I use a lot of nesting dies and natural dies. I probably have more Christmas dies than any other.

Stacy H-W said...

DonnaMundinger said...

Adorable card and I use that expression a lot. I'm a huge fan of dies, especially animals, words and flowers. xxD

Amy Martin said...

Your card is too cute!! So is the image. I like animals, flowers, butterfly, anything native american indian, word dies and anything I can use for mixed media.

Kathy said...

This is a super cute card. I also have lots of Nestibilities. I have started making lots of interactive cards. They are much easier to make with dies so I've invested in quite a few. I avoid dies that just cut around stamps and can't be used as stand alone dies. I just fussy cut stamps.

Jennifer Dillon said...

Love the camper die I mostly use flowers,frames,sentiment, and animals but use all kinds.
