Unity Tuesday

Time for some more TUESDAY fun with the Unity design team.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog.  There’s always fun stuff going on.

Lots of great stamps sets were put to good use for these cards.  One kit of the month and three sentiment kits.  I have them linked below.  The images are perfect for a quick card or for a whole lotta cards.  I used two different watercolor techniques (THIS one and THIS one) for the backgrounds.

Can you believe this??? I mass produced these cards… I do not mass produce cards.  Not 100% sure why, but I tend to get annoyed by the end of it.  I just feel like the stack will never end and the fun gets sucked out of the process.  BUT, I will tell you this… I had fun making this set of 30-ish cards. The watercolor techniques made it super simple and I was able to use up a ton of 6×6 papers.  Yay.  PLUS, I used my new tool… the MISTI.  It really does help with mass production by perfectly placing your stamps repeatedly in the same place.  I’m also loving it for single cards as well.  It is more reliable than my Stamp-a-ma-jig and repeat stamping is always perfect.  It is a pricey tool and honestly not absolutely necessary.  I got away with my Stamp-a-ma-jig for years.  But if you can splurge, I feel it is worth it.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today and hop with us.
Here is the list of all the hoppers with the design team up first.

    These are gorgeous, Lisa! Your watercolour techniques turned out beautifully.

  2. Patti Willey

    30 Cards! That would do me in! I’m sure the Misti was very helpful. I’m glad you’re enjoying it and appreciate the tip because I use two stamp a ma-jigs while crafting and find them a pain in the neck! You’re right..not terribly reliable and you can’t repeat a stamping for better coverage. Love your backgrounds today!

    Lisa your cards are all amazing. 30 cards is a lot but I know what you mean about the MISTI. Makes it so easy and is worth every cent. I know I LOVE mine!

    I’m with you, mass producing is not my ‘thang’, I’m currently half way through 75 birthday invites all exactly the same….. and getting there lol. but 30 cards, Wow! with the watercolour element they are certain to be just a little different on each card which looks amazing!

  12. Margo E. Newton

    Great inspiration. Beautiful colors and designs. TFS.

  14. D.Ann C

    I hear you on the mass-producing… I get tuckered out with 10 – even with a MISTI! But it’s a great feeling when the stack is done. You have a lovely batch of cards that should keep you in stock for at LEAST a day or two. lol!

  15. Gaylynn
