Websters Pages & Unity Stamps!!

Most of you have by now seen all the lovely goodies in the new Webster's Pages 'Girl Land' collection.  But today I have something really special to share with you!  Brandin O'Neil the owner and designer of all those gorgeous Webster's Pages collections got together with Unity Stamps and created this beautiful collection of rubber stamps to coordinate with the Girl Land collection!  I made the layout above incorporating 3 of the new 'Itty Bitty Stamps' and thought I would share some of the techniques I used to make up  this page. 
First off I started out by using the 'Tea Cup Tag Stamp' with some white Colorbox ink all around the edges of the hot pink paper from the Girl Land collection in order to to create a sort of lacy/vintage edging for my page. 
I then used the cute 'Diamond Tag Stamp' to create a soft background design for behind my photos.  I applied a soft taupe chalk ink (Studio G ink from Michaels) and used a tissue to gently wipe off the edges to create a design that fades into the background paper. 
In the photo above you can see the effect of the faded stamp design. 
And finally I used the 'Doily Tag' on a piece of the soft pink patterned paper in the Girl Land collection and then took a heart punch on the image to create the heart embellishments seen below.   
To make the heart embellishments, you simply use a heart punch on the stamped images (I also like to use a little extra ink around the edges of the hearts to give a more finished look).  Then I cut another slightly larger heart design out using a scallop edge scissor on some contrasting patterned paper.  Stitch to your background design and fold the edges of the top heart up slightly....Viola! a cute little embellishment for your page! 
Above I've pictured the 3 stamps I used for my page...but there are so many other adorable Itty Bitty stamps to be had.  All week long the WP design team girls have been sharing their creations using these stamps at the Websters Pages Blog as well as the designers at Unity Stamps Blog.  If you are looking for more stamping inspiration be sure to check out the posts for this past week.  And while you are at it, lay down some comments for a chance to win some of these super cute stamps! 

Thanks for stopping by!  I have a really exciting post to share with you all tomorrow so pop in if you have a chance!! xx
