Unity and Brutus Monroe Hop


I am so excited and thrilled to be a part of this hop.  Unity teamed up with Brutus Monroe and with his design team we are doing a blog hop (and instagram hop if you are on IG).

Wonderful new background stamps created by Brutus Monroe have been released with Unity.  I got the pleasure of working with Hit the Brick one.


I paired this wonderful background stamp with Unity's Stay Strong kit.  Such fun.  I used oxides for my background which gave it such a fun distressed look.   Take a peek at this simple quick tip video I made using this fun background.


Here is a second card I made using Hit the Brick from Brutus Monroe.  I paired it with Be The Light kit.  My background I heat embossed in blue and then applied Squeezed Lemon distress ink over the top.


I hope you will come hop along with us on this wonderful hop.  Be sure to visit all these blogs as I know the will provide amazing inspiration as well as a chance to win some goodies!

Hi Maria. My favorite is the coffee and vibes card with the colorful brick background. It reminds me of a distressed old Mexican restaurant here in Southern California. It looks great!
