Yay! A happy Summer hello everyone! Today I’m excited to be back with new rubber stamp kits for you! I’m thrilled to be introducing together with Unity Stamp Co. 3 new kits that are available now! From an interactive seed packet to a fun and fresh mason jar lemonade, this release includes some beautiful must-haves!
I love playing with color and this beautiful mason jar lemonade from my new kit Happiness is Homemade is the kind of stamp that will allow you to do just that! Glitter, foiled washi, patterned paper and watercolors, this card was so much fun to make!
Happiness is Homemade comes with a mason jar lemonade and also 2 tags to which you can stamp the sentiments that come with the kit. You can mix and match the elements or even use the tag stamps to personalize your card or gift with the recipient’s name. Just lots of fun!
The stamped image is the main focus of the card. I colored it with Zig Clean Color markers using them as watercolors, mixing yellows and pinks and greens. Next I used a Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen to add details. I couldn’t resist embellishing the lemonade with rhinestone stickers and Gold Halo Medium Glitter. I adhered the glitter with Mixed Media Adhesive by Therm O Web and tried to make it look as if it were floating inside the mason jar. I also added lots of dimension the the stamped images adhering them with 3D Zots.
To make the background I watercolored a white card base with a pink Zig marker and then started layering it with stripes of blue patterned paper and pieces of gold foiled washi tape. I also cut a circle from yellow patterned paper with the largest circle die from the Double Stitch Design set by Gina K. for Therm O Web. That circle gives you the feel of a sunny Summer day and it is just a simple yet fun element to add. All the patterned papers used for this card come from the new Hello Summer paper collection by Simple Stories (my fav lately).
As always, I’ve included some very nice sentiments in these kits… I’m all about the sentiments and I hope you love these new kits as much as we do at Unity.
