[4.5.2017] Unity Stamp Company Blog Hop

Surprise, the Unity design team is HOPPING tonight!!!  Woo hoo.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog.  There’s always fun stuff going on.

My post today is all about Unity Sentiment Kits and making card sets. I have decided I need to make more than one card at a time from now on. Haha. My stash was low and I had some requests from the family who were in need of cards too. Eeeeks. TIME TO GET STAMPING. Lots of cards to see using 3 different sentiment kits.

This is the brand new sentiment kit for April 2017 – Girl Truly. it is full of lovely little sentiments to go with those big beautiful flowers. I made a large set of these cards – 12 to be exact – with a variety of sentiments. I watercolored each one and it went very quick since I didn’t have to be super exact with my watercoloring. These large flowers allow for a lot of freedom. I did all the flowers first, then all the leaves and the background last. That gave time between each color change for some drying. I wrapped the vellum sentiment around the center panel and popped it up. The sequins were added last with a few glossy accents to hold them tight.

Curious to see how I watercolored these flowers. I have a quick video above. You can watch it here or on Youtube.

This is another one of my favorite sentiment kits from December 2016 – Special Wishes. I love the vintage look of it. The flowers are cut separate, so you can choose how wide apart you want them around the sentiments. My Misti came in handy for these cards!!! Again, I made quite the stack. First, I stamped the sentiment on a die cut panel. Then, I stamped the background text on the card base. Don’t you love how that text matches the vintage look of the stamp? So pretty. I have a stack of scrap papers from when I cover a card front with patterned paper. they are about 1.75 inches wide. I decided to use those up, by trimming them down a bit so they were just smaller than my panel, glue it to the card front and then popped my string tied panel up on the card. Super easy to make a bunch of these up. For some, I added a few pearls to dress them up a little.

Last, I have this “little” set using the August 2016 sentiment kit – I Consider You Special. It is another one of my go-to favorite kits. You can’t get any simpler than this design. I covered the card base with patterned paper and then used the leftover scrap to create a panel on another card. Mixed and matched them up. I stamped a doily and sentiment from the kit onto a die cut panel, wrapped some string around it and popped it up on the card. So easy peasy, thus my stack for this set was really large.
