Unity Day #5

Hello again!

Here we are at Friday already. Yay! My project today didn't start out as what it ended up to be. Originally I was going to make a deck of playing cards. After trying to figure out what stamps to use, I figured out that there were to many stamps i wanted to use. From there it turned into the good 'ol kids game of memory. I plan to do at least 25 matches, and so far I have 12 completed. I know that by the time I get to set 25 I'll want to re-do the first sets. Here is a sample of what I've done so far. I also decided the backs of the cards needed stamping too, so I used the distressed dots background. I'm going to be using random stamps from a variety of kits ranging from KOTM's to normal everyday kits.






My Recipe:
(26) Unity Stamp Co. stamps- from a variety of kits
(2) Ink pads - brown and black
(?) markers to color images
(50) playing card sized pieces of white cardstock
(50) playing card sized pieces of colored cardstock
(1) Corner rounder
(1) Adhesive to put cards together
Combine for a great game a memory!

I've enjoyed sharing my projects with all of you! Hope you've enjoyed them too. I will collect all the comments you have left for the whole week and pick a winner on Monday.

This is one creative and inspiring game. I might have to use this idea for a few Christmas gifts.
