Sponsor intro: Unity Stamp Co.

When am I not excited to introduce a new sponsor? Unity Stamp Company is another one of my favorites. If I could own stock in Unity, I would in a heart beat! I love the Stamp of the Week, Kit of the Month and the SMAK kit! I love that Unity has a little something for everyone and that the kits include sentiments as well as images.

I always love when manufactures take the time to SHOW people how they can work with their products. Unity offers “Stamp TV” where you can find great video tutorials using Unity’s products. Just click any of the Unity TV photos below to be taken to Unity’s ‘TV’ channel.

I literally spent hours surfing Unity’s blog. There was so much stuff I loved, and so much I wanted to share! But these are the top six projects I found. Each photo links to Unity’s blog where I found the inspiration. If the photo is a Unity TV ad, then the photo links to the video tutorial.

Unity Stamp Co can be found on FaceBook. On FaceBook they host several sales, and trust me, you don’t want to miss out on those because they’re good! If you could pop on over to FaceBook and “like” Unity (and Anything But A Card) and let them know Anything But A Card sent you, I would appreciate it (even if you already like Unity on FaceBook, let them know you saw their sponsorship here at ABAC)! It’s because of you that we’re able to offer incredible prizes!

Check back on the 1st of October (can you believe it’s October already!) to see what the design team has created!

Sponsor intro: Lindy’s Stamp Gang

Hi friends! I’m really honored to introduce Lindy’s Stamp Gang.

Tracey writes: “Lindy was born in Seattle, WA, raised there and along the shore of Hood Canal, WA. She became a teacher and moved overseas to teach US military dependents. Bremerhaven, Germany was the first stop in her adventure, where she met and married another American teaching overseas, the guy with the funny name, Wolfgang. She and Wolf moved around Germany, had me, Tracey Brown and my brother Joe and thought it was funny to sign all our family letters as being from “Wolf’s Gang”. Mom was always a creative, artistic person, drawing, painting, crafting, and putting her funny animal cartoons all over the walls of her elementary class rooms. Living in England, Canada, Cuba, Iceland and Germany there were lots of inspirations for her amazing cartooning talent. Most of the stamps you see today were inpsired by the many places we lived, including the farm that was our “summer home”, in Chehalis, WA, where Bovinia Buttinski was born! Always, though humor was a part of her cartooning.”

You can read more of her story here.

Lindy’s Stamp Gang offers a large variety in products, from Stamps to Sprays and Stains to Embossing Powders and Mica Powders. Tracey does a tremendous job filling orders, shipping as quickly as possible, and listening to her customers.

You can find Lindy’s Stamp Gang on FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest and Blogger!

Here are some samples from the design team over at Lindy’s Stamp Gang.

Lindy’s Stamp Gang has offered a very generous prize package including a little bit of everything! The prize pack is valued at $155! Included in the package is: Autumn Leaves starburst sprays, Jamaican Jungle starburst sprays, Mardi Gras magical micas, Prairie Wildflowers magical micas, Autumn two toned embossing powder, Harvest Moon mica powder, a craft scrubbie, fusible webbing, and one of Lindy’s books, chalk full of inspiration!
