Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! The week flew by for me! I am super excited as my daughter graduates this weekend from high school! It’s an exciting time for her and we couldn’t be more proud of the young lady she is becoming!
It’s an exciting time over at Unity stamp Company – there are many beautiful releases, including several digital stamps that are now red rubber! I am excited to share my cards with you today!
My first card is using the new stamp set Stick Together. This set is illustrated by my friend Sandhya Iyer! I love this set, the cacti is beautiful and the sentiments in this set are AMAZING! A great way to send a sweet message to your friends! For this card I started with my image on Canson Mixed Media paper. I used my peerless watercolors today for this card. I love these colors as they are super pigmented. I always start from lightest to darkest and build color until I have the depth I am looking for. I let each layer of color dry in between for the best results.
Once my watercoloring was complete, I stamped the sentiment Keep Going Keep Growing. I die cut my panel using a Gina Marie Designs Nested Scalloped Rectangle die. I adhered the panel onto a black card base. I then added Nuvo drops in black. I love this set!
For my next card I am using the new Gingko Greetings. I am so excited this stamp just released in red rubber! This set is also illustrated by my friend Sandhya Iyer. This set has a large corner stamp and a smaller individual stamp too, as well as 3 beautiful sentiments.
I started by stamping the large corner Gingko leaf and then the smaller leaf image as well. For this card I am using my Karin markers! I am loving the vibrancy of these markers! They are so fun to work with! I used the following colors (lightest to darkest): lime green, grass green, olive green, and indigo blue. I added some blue shading in the corner of each leaf using a dark blue pencil.
I then added a few splatters in a gold pigment ink, the splatters are from the May 2020 KOM. I then die cut the panel using a Gina Marie Designs Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered the panel onto a gray card base. I used a gold thin thread to add some extra interest to the card and adhered the small gingko leaf in the top corner using foam adhesive. I added the sentiment Hello Beautiful Friend with foam tape as well. I can’t wait to use these leaves again!
During the pandemic Unity released digi stamps, many of which are turning into red rubber! You can see the latest release here! One of my favorites is the beautiful Jesus and Germs set! Here is a card sample I made using the digital version, now it’s in red rubber!!!!! So happy about this being released!
