So yesterday, I claimed that I only had one Unity fruit stamp. That is true but I just had to figure out a way to make more fruit out of non-fruit stamps!!! This is where it paid off to have a catalog of all my Unity stamps. The instant I saw this border stamp from Dutch Mustard Soup that said 'thank you bunches', I wished I had a grape stamp. Then I saw the gumball machine and heart flower from Favorite Things/Rockin' It Unity Style and an idea was born. I didn't have the perfect green or purple inks to match the grapes so I double-inked in two different shades so the sentiment would be a better match. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
If you have Unity or Ippity stamps and want to play along today, you have until midnight CST to link up to the Unity Blog HERE. I'm also linking this card up to Unity's Tooty Fruity Challenge as well as the All Things Unity Challenge #31 to use previously uninked stamps. I'd never used the gumball machine or heart flower stamps! I think the next time I use them will be in their originally intended formats. ;)
Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
