Artsy Inked Panel Cards - Unity Hip Hop

Good evening! It's that fun time when the Unity Stamp Company Design Team has their monthly Hip Hop! I have a trio of fun inked panel cards that I created with some of the new Phyllis Harris stamp sets - and a couple Quick Tip Videos to go along with them! Aren't they so pretty sitting all together there?

I paired each of the images with a different sentiment from some of Unity's Sentiments Kits - they are fabulous for versatility and stretching your stamped images! I loved how this lovely Beauty in Everything paired up with this sentiment:

Here is the video showing my process to get that inked panel behind the images - you can also stamp your images directly on the inked panel, but I thought the softeness from the vellum was a nice touch:

Super easy, right?

Next up, I have this one using the new set Realize again paired up with another sentiment.

In this video I show a couple tricks I have for getting a sentiment on a thin strip of cardstock and lining it up perfectly:

The larger piece of the cardstock is easier to hold while heat setting, and a paper trimmer works perfectly to trim the extra off for a nice thin border.

And finally, this one!

This is actually the first one I made to test out the idea that I had in my head. I loved how it came out, so it was fun to put together a couple more and add videos to go with them!

As always, there is a prize up for grabs - so make sure and leave a comment before you hop along!

All the new releases - plus more! - are all on sale too, so make sure and check all that out as well!

Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible - and below that the rest of the stops along the hop - make sure and visit them all! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful evening!
