Stamp Of The Week – English Country Garden Butterflies

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… English Country Garden – Butterflies

Apologies for being MIA last week, with all the February Release prep and some ‘home’ emergencies I didn’t get a lot of creative time. However, I have made up for it over the weekend and had a good crafty session creating all sorts of inspiration that I will be sharing here and HERE.

With the 1st February comes the start of my excitement and countdown to the Uniko February Release AND Uniko’s 4th Birthday! I’ve kicked things off over HERE with a post that tells you how Uniko came to be, there is also a fun GIVEAWAY too 😉

Anyway, back to SOTW! With another storm (Henry) headed our way here in the NE of the UK and the high winds already battering outside, my thoughts are still focused on Spring! This time I thought of butterflies :) and as I was perusing Pinterest I came across THIS beauty.

Even though it this card has a collage of details it still has an air of CAS. I was particularly drawn to the trio of tags which make up the card front and the hint of colour from the base card. So, I had a go and this is what I came up with…

The only tag die I have in this shape is a small Papertrey Ink one which is 3.5 x 6.5 cm in size, so three combined it still creates a cute little card. I die cut the three tags and adhered them to an offset of SU! Costal Cabana CS . I then trimmed the shape of the tags at the top and punched holes all the way through.

2016SOTW19aAlong with stamping the large butterfly in SU! Going Gray ink I stamped a couple of swirly leaves from Natures Treasures II. The smaller solid butterfly is stamped on white CS and fussy cut out with the smaller outline butterfly stamped onto vellum and fussy cut out. I added a few SU! heart sequins, bakers twine and Wink Of Stella for a scattering of embellishment.

Ok, that’s all from me today, I am still super busy in the Uniko Studio surrounded by a sea of photopolymer! Lots still to do for the February Release and Birthday celebrations. Be sure to keep an eye out on the blogs and social media for all the fun and GIVEAWAYS!

Don’t forget that this set is 20% off this week HERE in store, for this week only. That’s all from me today, I will be back  tomorrow with more to share. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)

    I LOVE this butterfly stamp, and your showcase, with the trio of tags, is absolutely gorgeous! I need to bring my set out for a play date!
