Unity Stamp Company & OWH Blog Hop
Hello and welcome! I'm excited to be participating in the Unity Stamp Co. Blog Hop today (which officially begins at 12:00 noon Central time) with so many truly talented and gifted crafters. If you scroll down to the end of this post you'll find a list of the stops or you can head on over to OWH Stars & Stamps blog or the Unity Stamps blog to find your way too.
These new stamps are fabulous! I'm lucky enough to have quite a few Unity Stamps in my collection and they are among my favorite, go-to sets. I decided I'd take the opportunity to focus on the fun, artsy feel of this set in my card.
I used a 140# cold-pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper for my base and finally broke into a set of Faber-Castell Gelatos that I've had for awhile but until now had gone untouched. I started by creating the background, randomly stamping the text stamp in this set and then added the flag right on top.
The handmade in USA sentiment is heat embossed in white and those are just basic staples holding it to the layer below it. I should also note that the whole thing is then attached to a card base so there is no chance of catching anyone's fingers on those staples.
I had lots of fun playing with this set, and as you can see there are 2 stamps I didn't use... that heart would make a great CAS card all on it's own wouldn't it? Although the sentiment could make this card good for almost any message I think I'll be using it as an Any Hero card for OWH.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop! Head on over to Rachel next (#13) and see what she has in-store for you...
