SO here goes... Day 5 of Growing IN Unity and FWF.. Today I have 2 different projects to share.. One is Using Unity's Background stamps to achieve that Basic Grey Basic Look that is so popular.. I just love that line but thought why not make my own.. and seeing that I have all these wonderful background stamps from my KOM's and individual wood ones.. I would give it a try.
Here are the to cards I did Using the background stamps. With some of the Newer Stamps from the June and May KOM.
You Give Me Happy Butterflies.
I stamped this butterfly from the May KOM on the card itself and then twice on white cardstock, paper piecing the 2 and with some foam dots I layered it on top of each other.
I also did this worn stars background , using the singing birds from the new June KOM.. love this image.. and the sentiment is from Birdie Inspiration.
Now here are all the other cardstock cards I made using white cardstock and kraft.. I thought I would do a variety of different backgrounds for making more cards.
Using the Haystack Unity Ink, some White or Kraft cardstock, some Frost white ink and some neutral colorbox inks with a variety of background stamps. I started to play.
For the white cardstock just ink up your background stamp with the haystack Unity ink.. then distress it with the Frost white, and the lighted of beige from the colorbox.. adding some more Haystack colour to finish it off. I made alot of these.. and they look amazing.
For the Kraft.. do the same but instead of using the Haystack use the Frost White.. make sure you get this brand Color Box.. it is the best white.. very crisp look for your coloured cardstock. Then distress it using the other colours.. just make sure you let the white ink dry for a bit.. it is a very wet ink and will take time to dry. The overall look is quite amazing.
I hope you give this a try.. it is a great look for any colour cardstock.. I think I might need more background stamps from Unity... obsession.. obsession..need them all!! hehehe
Now for my second Project , we had this great project going on for Simply Scrapping Craft's Wacky Wednesday this week.. To make a survival kit.. and mine was a Beach Survival Kit.. Using this case I got from my dollar store.. I recovered it with some paper and Bo Bunny Stickers.. and seeing that Unity has the best Beach Days and Sun Rays Stamp Set I knew I had to use it to embellish it more.. You will see on the front of the container that great sand castle stamp...
For the inside I used some survival kit products like some drink coolers, first aid kit, sun tan lotion, beach football, wipes.. etc... I did all the fun packaging using Unity Stamps from the same Beach Days... kit and the BBQ kit.. love how it all turned out. It was a great fun project to do and I have already used it.. it came in very handy.. love that.
