Hello, creatives! I am sharing this gorgeous stamp set from Unity Stamp Co. today. This one is the Like a Lotus set, and it has this gorgeous floral image as well as a few encouraging sentiments. I used this one image in three ways, so keep reading for some stamping inspiration!

Stamp and Color
The first way to build a card with this stamp set is to simply stamp and color. This image is beautiful all on its own, so by bringing it to life with a little color, you have a quick and gorgeous card to send to someone.
I stamped and colored using Zigs on Bristol smooth paper. Then, I trimmed down the image to fit on an A2 card front, and adhered it with foam adhesive. I added a few clear sequins, and this card was finished. Clean and simple at its best.
Stamp a Pattern
The second way to use this stamp image is to simply stamp a pattern! This is so easy. The shape of this stamp is perfect for repositioning to create a patterned card front. I used some white pigment ink to stamp over a greyish-green cardstock. Then, you can either color in the lines, or leave it uncolored! I think either way is simply beautiful.
I chose to fill the images with some Midas Touch gold shimmer using Nuvo’s Aqua Shimmer Brush Pens. This adds some gold shine. I finished off the card by adding dots of white Vintage Drops from Nuvo, as well. A sentiment strip added, and this card was done!
Create a Background
My third and last way to use this stamp ended up being my favorite. I chose to color the image and then cut it out. This image is not hard to fussy cut at all! I colored with copics, fussy cut, and then went to work on a background.
For my background, I used some inks to blend onto one side of the card. Then, I added some embellishment mousse over an Altenew stencil for shine and texture. I also added some splatters using Nuvo’s new color of Sparkle Spray. Once all of the mediums added to my background was dry, I adhered the Lotus image over the background with foam adhesive. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment and cut it into strips so I could arrange it over my flowers.
I know I loaded you up with photos there, but when I love a card, one photo doesn’t seem like enough!
