GrowingInUnity Unity Stamp Company Craftisan Studios Kim Rippere

Just announcing that I am the designated Growing In Unity stamper for the week of August 10 – 14, 2015.  I am already planning lots of things for that week.  Please make sure to join me for projects and prizes!

We get some interesting bird in our backyard when they are migrating.  I have a great yard that connects me to nature and the seasons.

I’ve had this stamp for sometime and haven’t yet used it…found some vellum ephemera…and a tag was born!  One of the things I like about FwF is that is gives me a consistent reason to play with my Unity stamps.

The vellum says “”Observations.”  So, I guess I should put this in the bird book!



  1. Tag Base:  2 1/8 x 4 1/4.  I think I received this as a gift with a Unity purchase.
  2. Tag Background:  Distress edges with Distress Ink – Walnut Stain and Crushed Olive.  Stamped with Inkadinkadoo flourish stamp with DI – Olive.
  3. Tag Bird:  Unity Stamp inked with DI – Walnut.  Highlighted with Glimmer Glam – Suede, I used a small point brush to fill in some areas.
  4. Vellum:  This is two pieces of vellum ephemera from K&Company (probably) glued together.  I did some background stamping in the observation area – life, bliss, dream – DI – Olive.
  5. The leaves at the top are K&Company die cuts that I colored with Glimmer Mist – Mantis using a watercolor brush.
  6. Circle:  This is a scrap that I distressed with DI – Olive.
  7. Rope:  Random piece of thicker (perhaps waxed) twine that I got somehow (???) and love!  I just knotted it in between two of the leaves.
