Thanks for joining us on a special Sunday Edition of the blog, as we continue our Sneak Peek Week. So far, we have revealed a few new collections, along with buttons and designer tapes! We have more papers, stickers, and chipboard to show you in the next week, along with even more brand new embellishments. But today, we're showing you something different. Stamps!
Along with Unity Stamp Company, we are introducing 9 new Itty Bitty stamps to match with our newest paper collections: Baby Boy, Baby Girl, We're Expecting and Sunshine & Happiness. Each rubber stamp includes a great coordinating card sentiment for your greetings. Along with these new stamps comes a new announcement from both us and Unity Stamp Company.
These newest Unity stamps will now be available for order directly from Bella Blvd for retailers and distributors. That means when we ship your product order, the stamps will be included as well! In efforts to be more efficient we are happy to be stocking Unity stamps in our warehouse for order fulfillment. And, in an effort to please scrapbookers worldwide, Unity Stamp Company will be selling these stamps individually on the Unity website for consumers also! Now you have the best of both worlds. If you can't find the Unity stamps at your LSS, be sure to visit Unity Stamp Company and order them online.
"100% Boy" card, by Alice Carman.
For today’s card I am using Bella Blvd/Unity stamp called, It’s a boy! This is such darling itty bitty stamp. I stamped my image onto a few pattern papers using Bella Blvd’s Baby Boy line and cut them out instead of coloring them. You’ll notice that my stamp image is missing something. Can you guess?
I inked up my stamp and then I cut a small circle to cover my sentiment. Next I stamped the image on to paper and you’ll notice the sentiment part of the stamp did not show. This process is called, Masking. You can do this with any of the Bella Blvd/Unity stamps to change it up. Isn’t this cool?
"A Little Birdie Told Me" card, by Alice Carman.
Here’s another great stamp by Bella Blvd/ Unity called, Birdie Told Me. This is also another itty bitty stamp I got to play with today that you’ll want to get to match the Baby Boy line form Bella Blvd.
On this card I did a little paper piecing. Paper piecing is when you stamp an image on a few different patterns and cut out what you like and piece it together to create an image. You’ll notice I cut out the wing and the sack using different paper from the Baby Boy line and pop dot them on to my card. So what do you think? Great use of the stamping and no coloring needed.
