New designs from Ann Butler for Unity Stamps


A group of wonderful designers (including yours truly) are celebrating the official launch of my friend Ann's new line of rubber stamps. Scroll down and get to hoppin' through all their blogs to see lots of great projects.

There are four different sets, each with six unmounted stamps, available in either 1" or 2" size - you get a combination of squares and triangles.

I love how you can create so many different "patchwork" combinations by grouping the stamps in random ways on an acrylic block. Then you stamp, rotate a quarter turn, stamp again, rotate a quarter turn, and so on. From these individual little 1" stamps below, I was able to create this wonderfully symmetrical 4" block pattern above, complete with a leafy scroll in the center.



Ann designed a super versatile set of stamps - there's so many patterns you can make with just one set...but you're gonna want them all. So be sure to take advantage of this special half-off sale on the Unity Stamp site...enjoy!
