Stamped T-Shirt :: Unity Thursday {Blog Hop}


<<<Looking for my Lupus Awareness Month giveaway?>>>
<<<You can find it here.>>>

I am thrilled to be able to sneak into this week's Unity blog hop!
Although I am not technically a part of the Unity Design Team, I am one of Unity's Artistas...so I was able to squeeze my way in. :o)

I am so excited to share my project with you today. To create it, I used the new DIY L.O.V.E. stamps.
These stamps are huge!
(Like 4" huge!)
While of course these stamps are awesome for so many home decor projects, I wanted to do a little different version of DIY and jazz up a plain t-shirt.
After I stamped the letters and heart onto the shirt, I used my iron to heat set them. (This step is important when stamping on fabric.)
(Tip: If you are wondering if you own an ink that will work well on fabric, check out this post on Craft Test Dummies.)

My daughter loves her stamped t-shirt! She has already asked me if we can make more. And I can't wait to try making one (or more) for myself, too.


Don't forget: for today's blog hop, Unity is giving away two great prize packages! Be sure to leave a comment on each blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) to be entered to win. The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.


And don't forget to check out the great sale this week! It all starts at noon (Central).

There are new stamps this week, too! I love how Unity gets involved in raising awareness and giving back in various ways. There is a great new release this week for #bringbackourgirls :
And I am excited that this new stamp I designed is available now (and on sale!):
Continue hopping on through to the Unity blog, and then go shopping!







Supplies: 
Stamps: Unity Stamp Company (L.O.V.E.); 
Ink: Memento (Bahama Blue, Lilac Posies); 
T-shirt: Hanes (White Undershirt);

That is exactly how I picture the LOVE stamp in my head. I have a charm from the 70's just like it. It is one of the few things I've held onto...
