Unity Stamps Thursday

If you are a member or visitor of SCS then you recently noticed that this great company called Unity Stamps has jumped on board as a SCS Company Member! I first heard of this revolutionary company a bit before winter CHA started. I instantly fell in love with their images and mounting system. But I didn't purchase any stamps until they joined SCS. So my reaction to the stamps was WOW! They are high quality and super huge. I was shocked and excited by their size and since I love to color these are my type of stamps. I started with two sets called "Right on Target" and "Sweet Baby Boy". Since I have two boys at home (hubby and DS) I am always drawn to great boyish or masculine sets. Great masculine sets are always hard to find so I knew I had to have the fishing/hunting set. The first example was made with the "Right on Target" set. I combined it with this week's SCS sketch challenge. I stamped the grass with SU Artichoke ink and cut it out with my exacto knife. I then added some crystal effects to the grass to make it look realistic. Patterned paper is from Basic Grey "Infuse" collection. I adhered it to the card with 3d glue dots. DH really like how this card came out. The second card features the baby set. I took my color combo from the Crate Paper "Birdie" collection. I used those colors to color in the baby outfit. The sentiment is stamped on acetate paper using Black Stazon ink. I attached it to the card with some SU brads. The last bit of detail I added was some baby epoxy stickers from Target's dollar spot. Well that is all for today but I hope I have inspired you to check this great company out. Their products are really amazing and super FUN!
