Intrigued. That was my reaction to a new company that debuted at CHA, Unity Stamp Company. AJ, a fellow SCSr and new friend, was in their booth and showed me just how this system works, like I said, very intriguing. Angela and Christian's new line is definitely combining my love of wood mount with the ease of an acrylic mount system. Having been raised on wood mount stamps, I love the solid, comfortable feel of a wooden stamp. Clear stamps and unmounted red rubber have the wonderful feature of reduced storage, but the blocks I've owned up to this point, well, not so comfortable. In addition to this block system, Unity Stamps have an interesting array of stamped images that come unmounted as shown in this picture and also on what they term wood cassettes. See their website to view the full line of product.
So, Angela and Christian were so nice and generous, a few samples to take home and give a whirl, thanks to AJ, too! Anyway, another quick play when I should be getting back on schedule around here....I just NEED to stamp right now, it has been too long away from the stamping area and I missed it! Not as much as I missed my family, but pretty dang close!
So quick deets: Leaf images are stamped in Adirondack Lettuce and Oregano dye inks, Thanks in Espresso on Neenah Solar White. Matted on Prism Suede Brown, pierced, and adhered to the card base. Base is Amy Butler papers and Michaels $1 spot ribbon find.
Intrigued, yep, that's the word! I wish Angela and Christian the best of luck in their new adventure! Take a look at the link above to see them, their gorgeous children and their product line, including AJ and the other design team members.
