Hi friends! I am super excited to be back today on my blog sharing an AMAZING new release at Unity Stamp Company! It has been a very busy start to the school year. I apologize if I have missed some of your posts. I am hoping to begin to get back on track! Unity has an awesome release today and I had so much fun creating with 3 of the new sets! Let’s get started!
For my first card I am using the beautiful Scattered leaf Background stamp. I love this stamp and I created a shaker card using this beautiful new set! I haven’t made a shaker card in awhile, I thought this was the perfect set to create a fun shaker card! So let’s get started!
I started by stamping my image on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper. I love this paper for my Karin markers! I find the color moves really well on this paper and allows me to build color up really well without the paper pilling. Once my coloring was complete, I die cut the center circle for the shaker element. I then started to prepare my shaker.
To create a shaker pouch I use the clear office 3 ring binder sheets. I start by cutting the section I need to fill in my space. I have found using the binder pouches it is easy to create a shaker pouch. To create the shaker I use a Fuse Tool. Depending on the cut, I may need to fuse together 3 sides before I add the shaker elements. Once my elements are inside, I fuse the last side together. I then tape the pouch on the back panel and then use foam tape to create dimension, which allows the shaker elements to move. I then chose 2 sentiments from the Heart of Autumn Sentiment Kit. I heat embossed these on black cardstock using white embossing powder. I adhered my card together and added black twine which was a part of a KOM. I hope you enjoyed my first card.
For my second card I am using another beautiful background stamp called Illumination border background. I love the simplicity of these beautiful holiday lights. I also adore the vintage feel to these bulbs as well! Let’s get started!
I started by stamping the background stamp on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper as well. I planned to use my Karin markers to color these beautiful bulbs. I colored in my bulbs using 3 different colors. Once my coloring was complete I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to the bulbs. I used WOW Glitter embossing powder. It is hard to capture the shine in the pictures. I chose a sentiment from the September 2020 KOM. I love these kits – they are full of beautiful red rubber stamps delivered right to your door each month! I then trimmed down the card panel using a Hero Arts rectangle die. I trimmed own a piece of patterned paper from my stash and then adhered my card together. This was a fun and quick card to make! The possibilities with this stamp are endless and so fun! I can’t wait to see what you make with it!
For my last card I am using the ADORABLE Gobble owl, isn’t he so cute? I had so much fun coloring him. Let’s get started with my last card using this cutie!
To begin I stamped the owl on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper. I used my karin markers to color in this adorable image. I completed serval layers of color and then added colored pencils to the nooks and crannies for added dimension to this owl image. I then trimmed down my owl into a square using a die cut from my stash. I find I don’t use my square dies enough. I need to bring them out more often.
I wanted to create a fun background for my stamped image, I wanted to use this beautiful piece of patterned paper that was a gift mailed with my September 2020 KOM – I love that Unity adds fun surprises to your monthly mail. I trimmed down the patterned paper to fit an A2 sized card panel. I then stamped the beautiful background stamp – Small Details onto a piece of kraft cardstock using gold embossing powder. I then used a combination of distress oxides to “antique” the background a bit. I then adhered my card together and used foam tape behind my owl stamp panel. I added a bit of brown twine for added interest.
