Hip Hop with Unity and Vintage Street Market

Welcome to this stop on the UNITY HIP HOP for August 18, 2011, our first of two hops showcasing Vintage Street Market products with our Unity stamps.

Many of the Vintage Street Market products can be used to embellish your gift wrapping, so that is what I did!  I wrapped up a box for you, stamping on the glossy wrapping paper with Blossom Stackers stamps and Jet Black Staz-on ink.   I used the crepe paper that came in the Dimestore Vogue collection and wrapped it around.  I then made a tag out of the die cuts and some ribbon, and attached it to the package with U-Cut-It 3D foam from Glue Arts.

I used Blossom Stackers again on the tag to make the stamped and die cut label (die from Blossom Tags and Accents from Spellbinders).  I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, it's quickly becoming a favorite with me.

And for my second project, I die cut a Spellbinders box (Square Bracket Edge Box) out of the foil paper and then stamped one of the large stamps from Blossom Stackers.  The flower on top is the Spiral Blossoms One die from Spellbinders, using the paper from Vintage Street Market.

Before I glued the box top together, I stamped (with Staz-on Ink) the same sentiment on each side "For My Friend".

The lighting was terrible in my craft room.  It's hard to imagine that this grey looking foil is actually a beautiful turquoise blue from Vintage Street Market!  But you get the idea of how I stamped it.
