Just Hold On – Monthly Floral Release

Hi Friends! I wanted to stop in to share with you the beautiful new monthly floral release from Unity Stamp Company! I am super excited for a monthly floral stamp set for each month in the coming year! Today I am sharing the first set with you called Just Hold On! This set has a beautiful carnation and 3 beautiful sentiments! I am so excited about this set! Let’s get started!

Just Hold On

Stamping/Coloring

I started by stamping two of the caranation florals on Fabriano Hot Press cardstock. I knew I wanted to create a slimline card using this beautiful new image, so I stamped 2 images. For my coloring today I am using my Zig Clean color brush markers! These markers still hold a special place in my heart, so I love to take these back out to watercolor with! I worked from lightest to darkest for all of the coloring. I had fun coloring these images. I set these aside to dry. Once they were dry I used my Brother Scan and cut to trim both of the floral images.

Background

For my background today I am using one of the newer background stamps in the Unity collection, it is called Polka Dance! I just LOVE everything about this background stamp! Be sure to check it out now – it is on sale too! To create the background I trimmed a panel of watercolor cardstock to slimline size 3.5 x 8.5 and placed this in my Misti. I inked up the background using Distress Inks: Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac, Gold Pigment Ink, and my zig marker. I lightly misted the stamp with water and stamped the image. I completed this several times to ensure I had the colors I was looking for. I then trimmed down the panel using a Gina Marie Designs slimline die. I also added Perfect Pearls to some of the dots for added shine.

Card Assembly/Sentiment

I always love putting the card together once all the elements are ready to go! I foam mounted the 2 flowers on the Polka dance background. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set on white cardstock and adhered this with foam tape as well. I glued the panel down onto a slimline card base. I added a few sequins from Studia Katia – Crystal Clear Fushion.

I hope you enjoyed my new card featuring the beautiful new Just Hold On stamp set! I am so excited to see all of the beautiful monthly floral images released in 2021!
