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.
