Unity Stamp Company and Spellbinders Blog Hop

Welcome to our TWO-day event!

SWSBHopBlinkie

You should be joining me from Stephanie Muzzulin’s blog, if not then head to the beginning on the Unity Stamp Co. Blog.


With all the blog-swaps that are happening out there lately, I can't think of one more exciting than when the amazing women of SPELLBINDERS™ get together with the rock stars of UNITY STAMP COMPANY!

We can't wait to show you a special line of coordinating products featuring SPELLBINDERS dies and SAMANTHA WALKER for Unity Stamp Co. rubber stamps!
Not only are we thrilled to be collaborating on such a special 2-day event, but ONE of you will win ALL of the coordinating stamps and dies from the Samantha Walker collection! We will also have 1 winner each day from the comments that will receive 1 Samantha Walker stamp set and coordinating dies.
So be sure to enjoy our hop both days, leave comments on all of the blogs each day and check back to see if you won!

(winners will be posted on Wednesday, October 19th on the Unity Blog and Spellbinders Blog)

Unity Hop stinker SB

My little stinker. He makes me smile and lights up my whole world.

Unity Hop stinker SB CU flowers

The Samantha Walker Spellbinder die templates and Unity Stamp Company stamps coordinate beautifully! For the large journaling flower, I stamped the flower “petals” first. Then I used a small piece of tape to hold the die template in place, perfectly over the stamped image. The open inside of Spellbinders die templates make this so easy to accomplish!

The smaller orange flower was simply die cut/embossed and then I used an orange ink pad and inked through the die template. Another brilliant feature of Spellbinders products!

Unity Hop stinker SB CU leaves

These leaves were stamped onto green cardstock, once again placement die cut/embossed with a small piece of tape, and finally inked through to bring out even more detail.

Unity Hop stinker Sb CU stamped button

And you know I have a thing for stamping on buttons lately, so I couldn’t resist stamping a few wood buttons with more of these fantastic Unity Stamp Company images!

Now please head over to Jessica Diedrich’s blog!
