UNITEd We Stand - a CASology Challenge

Hey hey! Crazy 19 days of 2021 or nah?! Lol. Either way, I hope you can find some time to join us at CASology for the next 2 weeks. We have a heartfelt theme (and sooo timely) to play along with:

This stamp set is a must have...here's the story:

In June 2020, 12 stamp companies in The Stamping Village, pledged to create a collaborative stamp set, We Stand with You Stamp Set, in support of racial justice. This inspiring stamp set features images that symbolize unity, friendship, and community, as well as lots of motivational quotes by well-known activists.

This set includes one 6" x 8" clear stamp set containing 28 stamps made in the USA from high-quality photopolymer.

Sentiments: This set includes fifteen motivational sentiments to inspire us to stand together:

    • we are better together
    • you are beautifully and wonderfully made
    • the time is always right to do what is right
    • you matter to me
    • we are all one
    • "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -Martin Luther King Jr.
    • choose
    • kindness
    • "Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean." -Ryunosuke Satoro
    • "May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears." -Nelson Mandela
    • the hand of friendship has no color
    • stick with love
    • be the
    • change
    • you wish to see

**As part of a pledge by The Stamping Village to donate $10,000 for racial justice, $5.00 from every We Stand with You stamp set sold will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.

So tell me again why you shouldn't buy this stamp set!

I used 9 Distress Oxide inks for the rainbow color effect of the hands: Candied Apple, Crackling Campfire, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, and Picked Raspberry :)

I outlined all of the hands with my favorite tracing pens (Faber-Castell PITT artist pens). Oh, that stenciled heart and circle is from a forever ago stash stencil of which I have no idea of the name lol.

Pop in to see the other DT card images and our crafty guest designer for this challenge!
I hope you UNITE in our efforts to get some quality "me time" to play along and link up in our gallery.

Guest Designer: Tracy
