Welcome to day 3 of my Growing in Unity Girl week.

Day 3 Wednesday (this post)
Day 4 Thursday
Day 5 Friday

For today’s post, I created a set of cards using Empowered Words. For those who don’t know me well, I love being able to support and empower other people. When I craft, I find that most of the time I like to just let people know I’m thinking of them and want to send positive thoughts. This stamp set was gifted to me by a sweet crafty friend. You can see below that I created eight cards.

I am so proud of myself for creating some clean and simple ones, too. There were three combinations that I created: black and white, gold and white, and white on white. All the frames were from Paper Smooches Fancy Frames Icons Dies. These are some of my absolute favorite dies to play with. I die-cut a lot of frames and matching fun foam pieces in white, black, and gold. I stamped all the sentiments using VersaFine black dye ink. The background paper is from this amazing paper pad. The doilies were purchased from this eBay seller. The small flowers are from Altenew’s Vintage Flowers and were stamped with Hero Arts ombre inks. 

Creating this set was a great way of being able to use things like doilies, pattern paper, twine, embellishments, and even washi tape. Some of us like to hoard pretty things, myself included. So I’m happy I was able to use them. 🙂 

I have a really hard time creating clean and simple cards so the following card is progress for me. I love the white on white look. It’s so classy. I did add a touch of this minty green. I won’t show off each card, but you can click the images above to get a closer look. 
These quotes are so wonderful. I can’t wait to send these cards to some of my dear friends. How amazing is this white, black, and pink combination below? 

For the card below, I added some black gems and washi tape. 

Were you inspired by today’s cards? I would love to know what you think.
