Hi everyone I hope you’re having a great weekend. I am super excited to be back today to share a card with you using 2 of Unity Stamp Company‘s newest releases. The release has many beautiful stamps including back to school, a new sentiment kit, as well as some holiday stamps! Truly something for everyone you can see all of the new releases here.
Let’s get started today I am using School Days and Heart of Autumn Sentiment Kit. I started by stamping the backpack and all the adorable patches on Canson Mixed media paper. I started by coloring in all of the images using peerless watercolors. I did simple water coloring for today’s card. Once my coloring was done I set the images aside to dry. Once they were dry, I fussy cut the images.
I then started to work on the background. I loved these stamps they truly reminded me of back to school supplies so I wanted to create a fun rainbow card. To create the background I used a Gina K designs stencil. I used Distress Oxide’s in the following colors to create a rainbow pattern: Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Dusty Concorde. To create the rainbow pattern I used a small blender brush from Picket Fence Studios and Washi tape between the layers to ensure the color wouldn’t transfer between each other. I used a Gina Marie Designs stitched rectangle die to trim the A2 panel. Once this was done, I adhered everything together. I used foam tape on the back of the backpack. I then chose a sentiment from the set Heart of Autumn Sentiment Kit. I decided to just use the Happy sentiment and will later add to this depending on what I use the card for.
I think this set is so cute and can be used to send happy notes to your kids, your child’s teacher, and notes of encouragement. What is your favorite back to school supply?
