Stamp Of The Week – Stunning Snowflakes

Stamp Of The Week – Stunning Snowflakes

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week, this week I am dusting off… Stunning Snowflakes

StunningSnowflakesPP

This clear stamp set is one of my all time favourites and so I had to ‘feature’ it before Christmas. I simply love snow and snowflakes & wish it snowed here in the UK more often!

Anyway, here is todays card using the set…

SOTW23

I’ve combined 2 challenges for this card, first up the layout and overall design is based on this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below.

I started out with a different version of this card but made a few boo boos on it so abandoned it, I may try it again & share if it works! Then I remembered I have the SU! polka dot stencil and decided to do some ink daubing through it, something I’ve not done much of at all. So much so that I couldn’t even find a dauber! I used a dry baby wipe instead to brush the ink onto the black CS through the stencil which has resulted in a softer edge to my gold polka dots.

Secondly the colour scheme of my card is inspired by the new Color Throwdown challenge colours seen HERE and below.

Usually I would use less black and more white and gold but decided to give the black more focus. Instead of adding sentiment I decided to leave the card sentiment free & add a few rhinestones for added shine and sparkle. The stamped & fussy cut snowflake is adhered to the card using foam adhesive and lightly brushed with a clear Wink Of Stella pen.

That’s all from me this evening, it’s been another long day with the beans today. They were tired following their afternoon at Grandma’s & Grandad’s yesterday and so were quite irritable at times and quite demanding for attention. Hence this mummy is quite tired now!

I have some December Daily to catch up on so I might relax in the studio and have a play! I will be back tomorrow with more to share using this set & until then, thank you for stopping by.
