Unity’s July 2018 Blog Hop!

How’s July been treating you all? I hope you’ve found some time to stamp and create with some Unity stamps. Just hide inside with the air conditioner going, sipping a cold drink, and get your stamp-on. It sounds lovely!

For this month’s hop, I’m sharing a couple mixed media chipboard tags I put together using a couple of the new releases with this month’s SMAK kit.

Here’s a tag using one of Angie Blom’s NEW Angie Girls, Emerson.


I also incorporated this month’s SMAK Kit in the title and with stamping the stars. You could make such a cool background with the stars in no time at all.

One of my most favorite things to do with the Angie Girls is photo piecing. That’s when I manipulate a selfie and piece it in the blank space of the Angie Girl.

Here’s another look at my tag.


Here's a peek at the Emerson Kit and this month's SMAK Kit.



Here’s the other chipboard tag I completed using the “Always Had My Heart” kit by Tierra Jackson.


Sometimes I like to accessorize the stamps with hats. That’s what I did with this snow person. I found the bunny-eared fedora photo online. Then I printed-and-cut it using my Silhouette, adhered it to chipboard, and popped it from the snow person using dimensional dots.

This is such a sweet little image. So adorable!

Here’s another photo of the above tag.



Here's a peek at Tierra Jackson's kit I used above.

Unity’s June 2018 Blog Hop

Greetings from my craft room this lovely June! I hope you all are enjoying summer weather and good times with friends and family.

For this month’s hop, I’m sharing a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas I put together using one of the NEW sets from the Graciellie release.


QUICK PROCESS: First I applied some distress paint to the edges of the canvas and allowed time for it to dry. I stamped right onto printed tissue paper using solvent ink and adhered the stamped/printed tissue paper to the canvas with gel medium (allow time to dry). I framed the canvas with some Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens and filled it in here and there with distress ink and acrylic paint. I paper-pieced four of the flower portions of the stamp, fussy cut them, machine-sewed a button in the middle, and crinkled it to give it some dimension and interest. It was adhered to the canvas using a dimensional zot.

Here’s another picture of the canvas from a different perspective.
This is such a lovely stamp set. It’s my favorite from this release.

Unity’s 10th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop!

HAPPY Birthday! Wow—10 Years. Congratulations to everyone at Unity Stamp Company!

For this month’s hop, I’m sharing a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas I put together using the NEW Obsessed with Florals Background Kit created by Angie Blom with a sentiment from this month’s Kit of the Month.


QUICK PROCESS: First I applied some distress paint to the canvas and allowed time for it to dry. I stamped right onto printed tissue paper and adhered the stamped/printed tissue paper to the canvas with gel medium (allow time to dry). I framed the background stamp with some Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens and filled it in here and there with distress ink and acrylic paint. I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut it, so that the format of the sentiment is how you see it on the canvas. Then I adhered a die cut heart and wrapped the canvas with some jute twine.

Here’s a peek at the kit.

Here’s a look—see at another canvas I created earlier this month. I believe this one is 8-x-10-inches.


The butterfly was a recent Unity freebie and the sentiment is from last month’s Layers of Life kit.
