Unity Stamp Projects

The flower section of this card was created using the dahlia fold technique. To make the card itself, I stamped the large vine stamp on celery paper using celery ink and attached this to a white card. I stamped the large dotted circle eight times on some purple patterned paper and cut them out using the creative memories circle cutter. I attached each petal to the card and cut off any that was hanging over the edge of it. I stamped the small yellow flower on white paper and punched it out with a circle punch and finished it off with a purple crystal brad.

-supplies used: white, celery, purple patterned paper; certainly celery, barely banana, lovely lilac ink pads; circle punch, creative memories circle cutter, purple crystal brad, paper piercer.

For this card, I cut out a bunch of different sized circles using my creative memories cutter. I stamped on some and left some plain. For the large flower, I inked the stamp up using pumpkin and teal ink pads. I added some detail to the flowers and dots using a white gel pen, clear glitter pen and a couple pink gems. I tied brown satin ribbon around a green dotted paper piece and attached this to a white card. Then, I attached all the circles to the card, overlapping them and popping some off the card using foam squares.

-supplies used: Flower Parade stamp kit; white, teal, orange, pink, purple, green dot paper; lovely lilac, pumpkin pie, taken with teal, pixie pink ink pads; foam squares, white gel pen, clear glitter pen, pink gems, brown satin ribbon.

To start out, I took a pink paper piece, border punched the bottom edge, and stamped the large scalloped circle on the entire piece using pink ink. I then took the vine stamp and stamped it along the bottom left corner using first gray, then black ink. I attached this piece to a white card. Then, I tied black sheer ribbon and pink grossgrain around the card. I wrote the wish sentiment and doodled on a strip of white paper using a black glaze pen and attached that to the card. I also cut out the pink stamped flower and popped that on the card using foam squares. The center of the flower is gray flower stamped and punched with a circle punch. I then accented certain areas using the black glaze pen, and a glue pen and pink glitter.

-supplies used: Flower Parade stamp kit; white, pink cardstock; basic black, going gray, pixie pink ink pads; pink grossgrain, sheer black ribbon, black glaze pen, glue pen, pink glitter, foam squares, scallop border punch.

More Unity Projects

I stamped the large vine from Unity Stamp Co.'s Flower Parade kit on some patterned paper using cocoa ink, inked the edges of this piece, and attached it to a cream card. I stamped a small flower along a green strip of paper layered with a cream scallop piece and a blue scallop piece. I tied a brown and pink ribbon around this piece and attached the panel to the card. I cut out two layered circles and stamped the dotted circle on the cream one. I inked the flower stamp with rose ink and smudged it with some brown to give it a distressed look. I popped this off of the circle panel, added the smaller stamped circle and finished it with a blue crystal flower.

-supplies used: flower parade kit; cream, celery, light blue, brown paper, patterned paper; rose red, soft sky, certainly celery, close to cocoa, wild wasabi ink pads; creative memories circle cutter, scallop border punch, large corner rounder, brown stitched ribbon, foam squares, and crystal flower

I started this card with a glossy piece of paper that I sponged celery, caribbean, and teal ink onto. I then stamped the large vine and small flowers on it. I let this dry for a few minutes then attached it to the brown card.
I stamped the large flower on glossy paper using caribbean and teal ink, let it dry and cut it out. I stamped the large flower on brown paper and cut out just the inner part of the flower (or negative space) and attached this to the larger blue flower. The flower center is the small flower stamped and punched with a small circle punch. I added a brown ribbon to the card and then went along and added some details to the flowers using a white gel pen and clear glitter pen.

This card has a burgandy piece that is stamped using the scallop circle stamp-tan ink and small flower stamp-burgandy ink. I tied ribbon around this burgandy piece and attached it to a cream card. I stamped the large vine with two shades of green, cut it out and adhered it to the card. I stamped the scallop circle and flowers on cream paper, sponged some moss ink on it and cut it out using the creative memories circle cutter. I cut out another circle using green paper and a scallop edge scissor. Another circle was cut out of brown paper and I pierced the perimeter then attached the other two circles to this one. I cut out a small flower that was stamped on burgandy paper, attached it to the circle panel with a copper brad and popped this panel onto the card using foam squares. And the card was done.

Unity Stamp Co. Projects

I made all of these cards using some new stamps from Unity Stamp Company called Flower Parade. I just love their stamps and the quality of the images they produce. Each stamp kit comes with many coordinating stamps so there are oodles of creative options when working with them.

This first card is made with light blue patterned paper that I stamped on with three small flower stamps and attached it to a cream card. I added some orange dotted ribbon across, cut out the large dotted circle using scallop scissors and attached that over the ribbon. I inked the large flower stamp with apricot and then rocked the edges with pumpkin ink. I added a small flower stamped on the patterned paper punched out with a circle punch. The finishing touch was an orange crystal brad and I attached the whole flower to the card using foam squares.

-supplies used: flower parade stamps; sahara sand, apricot appeal, pumpkin pie ink; light blue patterned paper, cream cardstock; orange dotted ribbon, orange crystal brad, scallop scissors

On this card, I took some mustard colored paper and stamped the small flower randomly on the whole piece and then ran it through the cuttlebug using the swiss dot embossing folder. I stamped the large vine on this panel twice using brown and olive inks. I placed three tiny teal brads in the lower corner and adhered it to a cream card base. I inked the large flower using teal ink, then rocked it in brown ink and cut it out. I stamped another large flower on mustard paper and cut out the inner flower section (negative space) to create the layers. I stamped the small flower with olive ink and cut this one out as well. To finish the card, I attatched the flower layers to the card, popped the small green flower using foam squares and added a crystal to the center.

This is a card I did a couple weeks ago . I was in a spring-like mood and needed to see some spring colors. I used flower and leaf stamps from stampin' up's Time Well Spent set, and the stem is a hero arts saying stamp. Pattern paper is from making memories. I added crystal effects and glitter to the flower and the brad. I just love the dots and the fun whimsical colors of the card.
