Good morning! I’m back today for the weekly Monday feature for me here on the Unity Stamp Company Blog! So happy to be featuring the AMAZING Unity Kit of the Month set on Mondays here on the blog. These kits are always AMAZING, and they hold a special place in my heart since they were the first thing I purchased from Unity, and what got me hooked on Unity to begin with. Who DOESN’T love getting a happy package of stamps in the mail every month, right? And these kits just keep getting better and better. You can read all the details and info to sign up HERE, and see this month’s kit as well.
Today I had tons of fun with some of the smaller elements in this kit, paired up with some of the beautiful florals for an bright and fun layered bit of stamping!
I started off by stamping my large black blooms on my panel using my stamp positioner. I knew they would be the focal point of the design, so I wanted to get them placed just right. Then I stamped the 3 butterflies around them. This was the base of my card!
Then I grabbed some bright and fun colors of ink, and used the two little splatter images to add fun pops of color – trying my best to keep it random – which is harder than it sounds actually!Once I finished, it still felt like it needed something, so I grabbed a larger floral image, and stamped it over the top in a very soft gray color – soft enough to see and add a touch of texture, but not so dark and bold that it took away from the design.
One think I forgot to plan for, was a sentiment! Oops! I almost left it without a sentiment – since then it would have been perfect for any occasion – and all the sentiments in the May kit were too large to fit anywhere that I liked. I finally went back to my February 2022 Kit of the Month, and grabbed a tiny sentiment from it to stamp in black. Finished off with a twine bow glued on the bottom of the darker flower, a few sparkly sequins scattered around, and that panel mounted on an aqua cardbase!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
