Unity Stamp Co. and Spellbinders 2-Day Blog Hop


Welcome to our TWO-day event!  

You should be joining me from the start of the hop 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)



To create this card I paired Spellbinder's S5-070 Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents and Unity's Ornate Artisan Stackers. Here are the instructions to make it:
  1. Make card base. Layer cream paper onto patterned paper (both from Crate Paper's Random 6x6 paper pad) and adhere to card.
  2. Stamp the outter bracket onto the face of the card.
  3. Stamp yellow patterned paper (also from Crate Paper's Random 6x6 paper pad), cut and emboss with die template. Color inside of flourishes with gold ink. Fill in dots with black pen and ink around outside edge of die with gold ink. Adhere to card with foam tape.
  4. Cut/emboss F-012 Premium Craft Foil with die template and lightly sand surface. Ink surface with gold ink. Adhere to card with foam tape.
  5. Stamp sentiment and frame, cut and emboss with die template. Adhere to card with foam tape.
  6. Stamp, color and cut/emboss flourishes. Adhere to card.
  7. Embellish with flower (made with S4-351 Spiral Blossoms One), ribbon and decorative pins.

Now head over to  Stephanie Muzzulin’s blog, she is a very talented stamper and I can't wait for you to see what she has created!

Thanks for hopping today!
