Hello and Happy Crafting!

Did you know June is for sass? I just made that up but the brand new Unity Stamp Company sentiment kit for June is out and it is a SASSY one. I wanted to do lots of stamping and somehow make this vintage girl shine. Plus, I’ll share some fun and simple ways to add something extra to your cards.

The Details

I’m keeping my supplies fairly minimal for this card set and just mixing and matching as I go along. For this one, I am using the amazing Pop Dots Background. I love the retro feel that matches this sassy girl so well.

This time, I’m stamping this beautiful Bloomy Background. What a gorgeous backdrop for our funny girl. I stamped her and then popped her up in a banner shape.

Fun Element: this time I tied a multi-loop bow around the cutest tiny paper clip. Very vintage looking and it adds a bit of texture to the card as well.

The Details

Time to add a bit of texture and shine. Stencils are so very fun and I don’t use them enough. I just stamped the girl on a die-cut panel and pulled out a pretty stencil to add a little glitz to this card.
