Yesterday, I was catching up on some of my favourite bloggers and I noticed that Amy had done a video about her latest purchases from Unity Stamps. She also mentioned that they were having a big sale so I headed on over for a 'look'... and before I knew it I had placed an order!! I'm really looking forward to getting my new stamps.
After all the browsing around the Unity Stamps website I suddenly thought about a stamp I'd had in my stash for a while. It's one I bought several years ago because I used it to make my swap pins for a retreat in 2011. I hunted out the stamp and the swap pin but I'd long since ditched the packaging... darn it!
The next step was to do a bit of searching using Google and I came across a photo of some stamps and one of the stamps looked a lot like the stamp on my swap pin:
I was still no closer to naming the stamp but had a fairly good idea that it was in fact a Unity Stamp so I emailed them to explain what I was after and sent them the photos.
I was hoping that I might hear back from them in a few days but they literally got back to me within hours and confirmed that my funky girl was definitely one of their products.
It is called "Live, Laugh, Love GIRL" and here is a link to her (she's still available!):
Anyway, after Andrea's lovely email I started to have a few ideas about how I could use my Live, Laugh, Love girl to create a funky card. The one thing I didn't do was take 'in progress' photos... oops!
The background was created on a die cut piece of Distress watercolour paper with Peerless watercolours. Then I stamped my image using black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Next up was the sentiment which was a Simon Says Stamp set called 'Be'. After all that I just added some clear sequins to create a more 'dreamy' quality to go with the sentiment.
Here's my completed card:
Thanks so much for visiting xx
p.s. the Unity Stamp sale is on until the end of May!
