Brutus Monroe - Unity Stamps Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Today is a very exciting day!! Brutus Monroe is collaborating with Unity Stamps to release a set of beautiful background stamps and we are celebrating it with a blog hop with both Design Teams together! Here's what I created with one of the new stamps:


Unity Stamps and Brutus Monroe has come together to release a set of 4 background stamps in red rubber!! And they're so beautiful! You can check Barn Wall (the one I have used), Dance with Denim, Hit the Brick and Spilled Paint here. I decided to make a Christmas card with the Barn Wall stamp. I stamped the background with Maple surface ink on white card stock. Then I inked the card stock with  Maple surface ink to give a tone on tone look. I then gold embossed the sentiment from the Merry & Bright stamp set and the pine leaves from last year's Holiday Inspiration Box with Gilded embossing powder. I then adhered this on to an A2 card base. I took a piece of scrap card stock and applied Deco Foil Transfer Gel over one particular ornament from the Ornament stencil. Once dry, I foiled it with gold foil. I stamped the Holly sprig from last year's Holiday Inspiration Box with Sidewalk ink and colored it with my copics for no-line coloring. I then fussy cut and colored the edges with the same color markers. I then adhered a piece of golden twine on to the ornament and adhered the ornament on to the barn wall background with foam tape. I adhered the holly sprig and a few star shaped sequins with glue. I loosely wrapped a piece  of golden twine around the sprig.


How do you like this card? Please do let me know in the comments below. Also, here's the blog hop order:


Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Hi Berina. Maple ink, I would not have guessed that color. That’s why we need to experiment because it looks Fab! Kinda like cedar wood maybe. Very nice with gold foiling.

Oh my goodness! Love your no line coloring and tone on tone background. I would’ve never guessed that color. These Brutus Monroe backgrounds will save me so much when I can’t find the right ready to grab decorative paper.
