We are back with another Bella Blvd & Unity Stamps Inspiration Day! I asked a few of our Card Designers to use whatever stamps they were feeling inspired by, and to come up with some clever ways to use them. Let's see what they came up with!
“Thanks for the Lift” card, by Alice Carman.
I could not help, but stamp these adorable images multiple times so I wanted to make a card where I could do that. Did you notice that I removed something from the original image? I took the gift box away so I could use it for a different theme. It’s super cute the original way too, but I thought I try something different.
Birthday Girl: Miles of Smiles; Designer Tapes: Yellow Chevron; High Five Alphabets: Pink-Red, Yellow, Black-White; Unity/Bella Blvd Stamps: Hip Hip Hooray, Celebrate In Style
“Eat Cake Wish Big” card, by Alice Carman.
Who doesn’t love cake??? I love the clean smooth image you get using these stamps. I also cut out the image of this stamp as well so I could use it up against another Bella Blvd stamp.
Crochet Flowers: Dahlia; Designer Tapers Pink Flowers, Yellow Chevron, Blue Gingham, Punch Chevron, Gulf Dot, Jail Bird, Orange Stripe; Button Market: Wood Mix; Stick Pin Flags: Spring Flings; Unity/Bella Blvd Stamps: Cake Wishes, Tell Me More
“Birthday Boy” card, by Alice Carman.
This birthday toad is darling! I added some google eyes to make him more animated. He almost looks as though he’s about to jump off the card. Lol.
Birthday Boy: Toadilly Cool; Too Cute To Spook: Flags: Birthday Boy Flags 2; Unity/Bella Blvd Stamps: Birthday Toad
"Baby" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I think the "It's a Boy" stamp is so cute! I stamped it onto a piece of patterned paper and then cut it out to use as an embellishment for this card. Then I added all kinds of stickers and bling to decorate the rest of the card. Thank you for looking!

"Toadilly Cool" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I used "Birthday Toad" stamps to create part of the sentiment on this card. These stamps are "toadilly" fun! Ha! And of course I had to cut out the frog from the Cute Cuts sheet to compliment the sentiment!
Birthday Boy: Cute Cuts, Eat Cake, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Flags 2; Sunshine & Happiness: Happy Clouds; Designer Tapes: Orange Stripe; Unity Stamps: Birthday Toad
"Welcome home" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I used the "Welcome home" stamp to create a flag to coordinate with "Fall" and "Thankful" flags I used on this card. I stamped "Welcome home" on a piece of patterned paper, cut it out, wrapped it around a pin similar to the ones on the Bella Blvd flags (I found these in the craft section of Wal-mart!), and then cut a dovetail in the end for a little contrast. Thanks for looking!
Thankful: Homey, Borders, Burlap, Bountiful, Chipboard Icons, Flags 2; Baby Girl: Daddy's Girl; Flags: Fall; Unity Stamps: Welcome Home
“Happy Thanksgiving” card, by Gail Hoecker.
I love fall. The crisp air is so refreshing, and the colors. Don’t get me started! This was a fun card to make. First off, the Bella stamps made by Unity are the best! They stamp so clear, right out of the package, no messing around trying to make them stamp a good clear impression. Next, I stamped the turkey on a variety of papers, cut the feathers out and popped some of them up. But don’t think about this little guy for your Thanksgiving dinner, he is way too cute to eat!
Thankful: Homey, Turkey Tracks, Perfect Day, Bountiful, Burlap, Our Spot, Borders; Unity Stamps: Happy Thanksgiving
