Growing in Unity Day One!

I am so happy you are here! This week is my week to host “Growing in Unity” showcasing some of Unity Stamp Co.’s most amazing and fantabulous stamps! Seriously - I love these stamps!!

This week I am using images from two different sets - Just Wanted to Say and A Love Beyond Measure.  I was inspired by the amazing Maria Levine - one of Unity’s  ‘ippity chicks’.  In her video she shows how to do an embossed resist and I couldn’t resist (heehee) trying it! (click to see how she does it!)


I stamped the butterfly image from the “A Love Beyond Measure” kit with versamark ink and used B&J’s Art Stamps embossing powder in Mystic Fire on top. After heating it I used Inguilde Bolme chalk ink in Coltsfoot Stemens and Close to my Heart ink in Sorbet over top.  The sentiment is stamped in Stazon black from the “Just Wanted to Say” kit. The blue butterfly sticker is from Typo.

Thank you for stopping by today and be sure to leave a comment every day! One lucky commenter will win their choice of 2 itty-bitty stamps!  So fun!

I'm loving your colors--the graduated colors are very cool. I'm going to try that. I never think to make colors look like this. You are a genius. I also like the embossing. I just love to learn new things about stamping. Thanks.
