Unity Stamp Company – NEW Release

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.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! You can see all of the new released stamp sets here! I hope you will take a peek!

Unity also carries beautiful patterned paper packs and the quality is amazing! You can see the new Fall line here.

Unity Stamp Company – New Monthly Kits!

Hi Everyone! It is September 1st and that means the new monthly kits are being revealed today over at Unity Stamp Company! I love when the first of the month arrives, it is exciting to see the new stamp memberships and all the beautiful red rubber stamps! Unity Stamp Company has 4 different memberships, there is something for everyone! I will link them all below if you are interested in checking them out!

Today I am sharing 2 cards with you, using 2 of the monthly memberships. For my first card I am using the September 2020 kit of the Month – Elements of the Holiday. I love this kit, it is full of red rubber stamps and this month’s kit is full of amazing holiday stamps! I can’t wait to create more cards with this kit!

I started by stamping this beautiful Poinsettia image. I used Tombow markers to color today. I worked in layers to complete this coloring. I worked from my lightest color to my darkest color. I did add colored pencils to the nooks and crannies for added dimension. Once my coloring was complete I used my Brother Scan and Cut to trim this stamped image. I added metallic splatters to the floral image and set it aside to dry.

I then started to work on my card panel. I wanted to add some interest behind my floral image. I chose the stamp set Love Life as Is – Unity Stamp Company. I stamped the large background stamp in Gold ink onto my card panel. I then trimmed down the panel using the Double Stitched Rectangle Die from Gina Marie Designs. I adhered this panel to my A2 card base. I added burlap twine around my card base. I really like the added burlap twine – I feel it adds a rustic touch! I used foam tape to adhere the floral image, as well as the sentiment. My card is complete! I can’t wait to create my next holiday card with this kit – so many amazing stamps!

For my 2nd card I am using the September 2020 Uniquely Unity – Wings of Peace. This set is adorable. I wanted to showcase the beautiful dragonflies from this set with a simple color palette and of course some added shine! Let’s get started!

I started by stamping 3 of the same dragonfly stamps on Canson Mixed Media paper. I then trimmed them using my Brother Scan and Cut. I wanted to do some ink “smooshing” for the dragonflies using distress inks. I love adding color this way – it is simple and quick! I used the following colors: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, and Shaded Lilac. I placed some ink on my glass mat and spritzed water and then “smooshed” the dragonflies into the ink. I did this several times. I then set them aside to dry and started to work on my background panel.

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock for my background. I chose a Gina Marie Designs stencil from my stash. I used two colors on the background/Distress Oxide: Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose. Once my blending was complete, I added glimmer paste – Brutus Monroe Glitter Glaze/Fallen Snow. I set this aside to dry. Once dry, I trimmed this panel down to an A2 card size. I wanted only a portion of my gray card base to show. I trimmed the scalloped border using Pretty Pink Posh scallop border die. I then adhered my card and added some pink twine for added interest!

Thank you for stopping by today! You can see each of the monthly memberships here if you are interested:

Give Thanks – August KOM

Hi everyone I hope your week is off to a great start. Today I wanted to stop in and share a fall card using the August 2020 kit of the month from Unity Stamp Company. The kit is full of so many beautiful red rubber stamps as well as beautiful sentiments. Today I chose to work with a fall wreath from the kit as well as a sentiment.

To begin I started with a piece of Canson water color card stock. I first started by creating a watercolor background using Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I used the following colors to create the background: 42 Aureolin, 46 Burnt Sienna, 32 Red, and 33 Cadium orange. For this background I used a wet on wet technique. I placed water on the background, then brought in each color to the paper. I have found when creating a background the wet on wet technique works very well for allowing the watercolors to move and blend together. It is important to let each layer dry before adding more color. I have found best results when they dry on their own. I did two layers of color and on the second layer I did add some blush gold 91.

Once my background panel was dry, I embossed the wreath using Brutus Monroe embossing ink and then used Brutus Monroe Gilded Gold embossing powder. I then used Karin brush markers to color the fall leaves and acorns in. I used the following colors: Red 209, Amber 195, Gold 283, Sepia 074, and Henna 105. Since I did a watercolor background I did very simple coloring. I did one layer of color and then added a second layer in different parts of the leaves and acorns for added interest. I then used a Hero Arts nested rectangle die to die cut my panel. I added some metallic splatter to the watercolor background in a red metallic and orange metallic. I used a piece of dark orange card stock from my stash and glued that to my card panel. I then placed the wreath panel on top. I chose a sentiment from the set called Give Thanks. I stamped this in black and then die cut it using a Gina Marie designs stitched Circle die. I adhered this with foam tape. I added a few sequins for added sparkle.

Today is the last day of the sale at Unity stamp company. Many sets are on sale for 55% off, over 600 stamps in the sale category (Fall, Halloween, Love & Friendship, Kids, Pets, School).

Back to School Supplies

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?

Stand Tall – Unity Stamp Company

Hi Friends – Hope you had a great weekend! It was a very sunny, hot, and humid weekend here! I love the sunshine… so it felt good! I did have a little more crafty time with the added heat this weekend! Today I am sharing one of the new releases from Unity Stamp Company – Be a Flamingo! I love this set – this set makes me dream of a beach vacation! Be sure to check out the Unity website – for the awesome releases this weekend! There is a set for everyone… Fall, Winter, and a beautiful holiday background stamp too! I have linked them all below!

Let’s get started! I started by stamping the flamingo. I used my Tombow brush pens. I did very simple coloring for the flamingo. I only used 2 colors. I also colored in the palm leaves using a green shade, leaving this coloring very simple. I did add some glitter drops on top of the leaves too. Once my coloring was complete I set the flamingo aside and started to work on my background! I was excited to use my new stencil, a recent purchase from Unity Stamp Company. It is a cloud and wave stencil all in one! I was so excited to use this stencil. I used the following Distress Oxide ink colors for the clouds: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, and Squeezed Lemonade! I had fun making clouds – this was new for me! Once my clouds were complete I masked a section on the bottom to add leaves. I created a rectangle shape using washi tape. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil – Leafy Frames with Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron I wanted to add these leaves to add a tropical feel.

Next up was creating the water and how fun to use this 2 in 1 stencil. I moved my washi rectangle to create the waves. I used Distress Oxide in Salty ocean. I then added Glitter Glaze on top for added shine! Once everything was dry I die cut the card base using the largest of the Gina Marie designs double stitched rectangle. I then used a smaller one for the middle of the card. I then adhered the outer frame to my card base and used foam tape to adhere the middle portion of my card. I glued down the sentiments (this is one large sentiment and I split it into 2 sentiments). I used foam tape for the flamingo too!

I had a lot of fun using this new set! I love the beach, so this set just makes me smile!!!!!!

Happy Release Day – Alex Syberia Design

Hi Friends – I am so excited to share 2 cards I created with Alex Syberia’s July release! The release is so beautiful, you can see the July release and all of her digital stamps in her ETSY shop – be sure to check them out! To celebrate Alex’s new release she is hosting an Instagram hop! I hope you will come join us! You will be able to see all of the beautiful new stamp sets, be inspired by the designers, as well as have a chance to win a gift certificate to her shop! I hope to see you there!

For my first card I am using the Plumeria Card Panel digital stamp. I started by printing my image on Canson Mixed Media paper. I love this card panel image, it is all ready to go to create an A2 sized card. I did want to also share when I work with digital stamps I often print several stamps on one sheet of paper, this is a great way to create multiple cards and to make sure you use a full size piece of paper.

I taped down my panel to my work surface/board and was ready to watercolor. I used a combination of Zig clean color brush markers and Peerless Water colors for this stamped image. I used the following colors:

  • Leaves: Light green 041, yellow green 053, Olive Green 043, Persian Green 033, Peacock 038
  • Flower: Yellow 050, Scarlet Red 023, Dark Pink 027
  • Stem: Mid Brown 065

I worked in layers and allowed my coloring to dry between. Once my coloring was complete I set this aside to dry. To create the background I used an A2 size piece of Bristol Smooth Card stock. I used Distress Oxide in Black Soot to create the background. I added Perfect Pearls as well for added shine. For my sentiments I used the Hugs die from Simon Says stamp and The Gray Muse – You Grow, Girl sentiment strip. I layered the hugs die cut 3x for added dimension. I then fussy cut the stamped image on the top and glued this to my oxide ink blended background. I had fun with this one – it reminds me of the beach!

For my second card I am using the Beautiful Flowers digital stamp set – slimline panel. As soon as I saw this stamp, I thought of Alex’s dot coloring! Which I truly love and can only hope to learn this technique more over time. You can see card examples by Alex using this technique – I am blown away by her creativity! So here is my attempt….

I printed the slim line panel on Canson Mixed Media paper. To color the 3 floral images I used my Tombow markers. I used: Pink 723, Blue 553, as well as added some Peerless watercolors to deepen the blue color. I completed just a couple layers of color on this card. I set the floral image aside to dry prior to adding the dots.

To create the background I used a piece of watercolor cardstock a little larger than a slimline base. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors: Rose Madder 34, Rose Madder Deep 36, and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Fuschia) to create the background. I added a few gold splatters to the pink base as well. In person you can see the added shine. I then chose 3 colors of alcohol markers and attempted some dot coloring! I have a log way to go, but it was fun! On Alex’s You Yube channel she does show how she uses this technique! I watched it before trying it! I wanted to add a little extra shine, so I used Stickles in gold and placed this in the center of each flower and added gold glitter on top! It’s super sparkly in person! I then chose the Birthday sentiment from – Gingko Greetings – Unity Stamp Company. I heat embossed this in gold on black cardstock. I adhered my card together and foam mounted my sentiment! I hope this card will brighten someone’s birthday!

NEW Release and Birthday SALE – Unity Stamp Company

Hi friends! Hope you are doing well! It has been very hot here the last 3 days! Which means I did have a bit of extra crafty time! I am super excited to be able to share 3 cards with you using some of the NEW RELEASE at Unity Stamp Company! This new release is beautiful and so much fun! Here is a link to all the new arrivals. Unity is also celebrating their birthday with a site wide SALE.

Let’s get started with 3 of the new stamps released. My first card is using the set Aging Gorgeously – July 2020 Sentiment Kit

For this card I chose to watercolor using my Peerless Watercolors. I love the bold colors in this set. I used the following colors: Jackqueminot Red, Mauve, and Chrome Green Deep. I used 2 layers of color on this floral image. Once my watercoloring was complete I set this aside to dry. A few weeks back I had a fun afternoon and made several backgrounds using alcohol inks and glitter. I tried something different, I placed the alcohol ink on my glass mat, added glitter, placed photo paper on top, then used my brayer. I was excited to see it work. It was a fun way to use the inks, along with photo paper.

I wanted to add a little more dimension to the card. I used a Gina Marie Designs Die – Slanted Brick Background die. I adhered the alcohol background to this die cut and then adhered it to my card base. I fussy cut the floral image and adhered this with foam tape. I then chose this beautiful sentiment from the kit and adhered this with foam tape. I love the added dimension! This set has so many beautiful birthday sentiments – I hope you will check it out!

For my second card I am using the set Words in Bloom. This set was illustrated by my dear friend Sandhya Iyer. When I first saw this set I wanted to create a set of notecards! I think this set would also make a beautiful slimline card, or even added to the outside of an envelope! So many beautiful possibilities with this set!

I started by stamping each of the floral words in this set – you will see each flower has a different sentiment on the stem: Hello, Blessed, Believe, Hope, and Kindness. I did simple coloring on each of the floral images for these cards using my Tombow markers. I then added some Glitter on each floral using Brea Reese liquid glitter. I die cut each floral using a Hero Arts rectangle die and then matted these on black cardstock. To create the background I used the Faithful Letter Background Stamp – Unity Stamp Company. I stamped these on a kraft card base. I wanted to soften the background a bit, I used distress oxide in: Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain, and of course some gold splatter. I added die cut leaves in coordinating colors to each card. Foam mounted the floral panels and my card was complete.

For my last card I am using the beautiful new Succulent Border Background, also illustrated by Sandhya Iyer. I love background stamps! I truly love to color, but wanted to showcase another way to use a background stamp today! Background stamps are so versatile and can be used in so many ways!

Once my image was stamped, I taped the watercolor card stock down to a wood board. I then took out my Nuvo shimmer powders! These are so fun to work with, I love all the different colors within one bottle! I used the colors: Golden Sparkle, Catherine Wheel, and Green Parade. I added a bit of each color to the stamped image and then sprayed water. It’s so fun to see the colors come alive! I have learned it is best to let the colors dry. Initially it looks a bit messy, but it does come together!

Once my panel was dry I did add a bit of color using my zig clean color brush markers. I added colors in different areas to add more interest! I then die cut my panel 2x using a rectangle die cut. I used a foam background under the center panel to add more dimension. I adhered these to my card base. I then die cut a Congrats sentiment 3 times (2x in black and 1x in gold) and stacked these together. I then chose the Celebrating You sentiment from the Aging Gorgeously – July 202 Sentiment Kit , foam mounted this and added a few gold sequins! I hope you like this one too and give this idea a try!

Unity is also celebrating their birthday with an AMAZING site wide sale, as well as a few new crafty products on their store! I hope you will check it out! Here are just a few links:

Let’s Celebrate!

Hi Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! I have been enjoying using some stamps more recently from my stash! Today I am using the beautiful Unusual Day Poppy – by artist Graciellie Design/Unity Stamp Company! I was excited to work with this image in red rubber, the floral is HUGE!!! So let’s get started!

I started by prepping my A2 watercolor panel/Canson XL water color card stock with my powder tool and heat embossed it using a gold embossing powder. I used my peerless water colors on this card. I truly love these colors, as they are super pigmented so they are fun to use. I used a wet on wet technique to color this beautiful bloom. On the flower I used a combination of yellow, orange, red, and pinks. On the leaves I used greens, blues, and yellows.

Once my watercoloring was complete I added the color around the large bloom, using 2 shades of purple. I did a similar color combination the other day and I loved it! It was fun to try it again. I trimmed my panel to an A2 card size and adhered this to my card base. I chose the Let’s Celebrate sentiment from the May 2020 Kit of the Month. I heat embossed this in white on black card stock and then foam mounted this to my card panel. I find watercoloring so relaxing and an area I want to learn more in.

I also wanted to let you know Unity Stamp Company has a Mystery Discount Summer SALE happening right now. The SALE will go until Thursday evening at midnight. You can add items to your cart and the SALE/discount will appear. Have fun checking it out!

Friends Stick Together – Unity Stamp Company

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!

Be sure to check out the AMAZING sale too – all of the 2020 released stamps are all on SALE right now too!

I hope you have a great weekend! Be safe and healthy my crafty friends! I truly appreciate you stopping by, it means so much to me!
