Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #2

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… Flower Power #2

FlowerPower2PP

Today I have been longing for Spring. I love all the seasons and what they offer in the form of flora, fauna & the elements, but today the cold got to me and I longed for Spring weather to walk the beans out in! Hence my reason for choosing Flower Power #2 to revisit this week 🙂

2016SOTW13

My card today is inspired by the current challenge over a Fusion Card Challenge seen HERE and below. I opted just to use the photo inspiration.

2nd Year Anniversary

I opted for mainly bright shades of the pink & yellow seen in the photo to compliment the Hero Arts sentiment from the Acts Of Kindness clear stamp set. After seeing all the cards around blogland using it I snagged a set just before Christmas, but I’ve hardly had time to use it!

2016SOTW13a

I kept my card fairly simple, with lots of white space and a clustered focal point. I used a chevron stamp from Uniko’s now retired Wonderful Washi Christmas to highlight the edge of the notebook die and clustered my stamped & fussy cut blooms to the lower righthand corner of the card. Finally I added some leaves from Flower Power #6 and some SU! candy dots to the flower centres.

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 🙂

ChallengeGraphic1

A challenge perfect to combine with this weeks SOTW! Like yesterday’s card HERE, I decided to focus on the smaller sentiments contained in Always & Forever….

2016SOTW12

It’s not like me to use so much patterned paper on my creations, but sometimes the mood strikes me and it works out well. This is some old Bo Bunny DP and I don’t know the name as it was just a small off cut I had. The pennant is a die cut tag with the top trimmed off and a small heart die cut into the upper centre. I embellished the pennant with the Valentine sentiment, added some bakers twine and heart embellishments & tadah, a quick easy Valentine card! Minimal fuss so it could be suitable for the man in your life 😉

2016SOTW11

Today I wanted to focus on the tiny XOXO sentiment stamp (Hugs & Kisses). I went for an über CAS card, using up some Papertrey Ink Soft Stone polka dot paper, some SU! Basic Grey bakers twine and a Pretty Pink Posh mini tag die cut. For that little pizzaz I added some glitter to the off the tag stamped hearts!

2016SOTW11a

It’s been a busy bean free day here at Uniko HQ, hence my über CAS card 😉 It’ll be worth it when you see what’s coming in February!

2016SOTW10

Today I have used the new Freshly Made Sketches sketch seen HERE and below, it was perfect for what I had in mind for my card. I just love it when that happens 🙂

FMS Final 219-001

The ‘Always’ sentiment is from All Occasion Sentiments #5 which will be back in stock on the 25th Jan along with 6 other popular clear stamp sets. I can’t resist using glitter and sparkle on Valentine’s cards and so the smaller hearts got a good sprinkling and the larger ‘Love You’ heart was embossed with crystal EP!

2016SOTW10a

2016SOTW9

The current challenge over at “Less is More” HERE is a one layer challenge with a cue word of FLOURISH. Now Uniko does have the retired FONTiment Fancies Swirls & Flourishes set, but as it is retired I decided to look through the ‘ton’ of stamps from other companies I have stashed away!

Less-Is-More-Header

One of my all time favourite companies and the one that got me into the whole blogging thing is Hero Arts, they are a FABulous company with SO many wonderful products. I decided to ink up one of my favourite WM rubber stamps to pair with the Beautiful Bloom heart from the set.

My colour choices were inspired by the current {Cupcake Inspirations} challenge seen HERE and below, a lovely soft colour palette for a love themed card.

CIC342

I decided to go for an Anniversary card instead of a Valentine card and added a sentiment from Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum. Hopefully you can see the sparkle in the close up of the glitter I added to the heart & the Wink Of Stella I added to the flourish.

2016SOTW8

I made this card at the same time as my blog hop card HERE and it got the same Minc foiling treatment! This time I combined gold and turquoise foil for the hearts. I promise that not all my cards this week will be foiled!

It’s a fun machine and has a ton of possibilities, especially with what I have seen peeked at CHA the Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show in California on various social media. There are some new mediums coming out to use on your projects to then add foil to such as glimmer mists and paint. Oh and some yummy ombre foils!

2016SOTW8a

Anyway, back to my card. As you can see I added a large ‘love’ die cut from SU! which I added Wink Of Stella to and a sentiment from the Always & Forever set. For an added bit of bling the hearts are embellished with rhinestones.

Ok, that is all from me today, I haven’t had a very good start to the week this week 🙁 everything that could go wrong kinda did. Time to chill, relax & hope for a better day tomorrow.

Stamp Of The Week – All Occasion Sentiments #2

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… All Occasion Sentiments #2

AllOccasionSentiments2PP

This is my last project this week featuring this set, I’ve had a lot of fun giving it so much inky love and paring it with other Uniko clear stamp sets. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as me?!

Anyway, I’m not 100% sure of this card, but I thought I would still share it with you…

2016SOTW7

My card layout was inspired by the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch seen HERE and below and I used the current CAS Colours & Sketches colours again seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 218-001

CC&S color155-001

I can’t decide if it is the lighter shade of grey I decided to use which is Soft Stone or if it is the stamped HAPPY background that makes me not *love* my card. However, I was told at University when studying for my degree in Textiles & Surface Pattern that just because you don’t *love* or *like* what you have created, there will be somewhere out there that does.

2016SOTW7a

OK, that’s all from me today, I will be back tomorrow with a NEW SOTW week set. Don’t forget that this set is 20% off this week HERE in store, for this week only. Plus we still have a CRAZY January Sale on for a limited time only, so be sure to grab a bargain while you can & retiring clear stamps or dies before they are gone for good.

Stamp Of The Week – All Occasion Sentiments #2

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… All Occasion Sentiments #2

AllOccasionSentiments2PP

Though I have mainly focused on masculine cards this week, I couldn’t resist making a masculine card to ‘match’ the floral feminine card I made HERE yesterday.

2016SOTW6

Creating the BG was so much fun and I wanted to test it out using the CAS Colours & Sketches colours seen HERE and below and I also wanted to pair the HAPPY sentiment with images from Nautical Treasures.

CC&S color155-001

As you can see my main focus colours are the Marina Mist & Smokey Slate, using only a hint of Pool Party with the bakers twine on the tag. I decided to create the same sized card as my floral version and used the same tag, even though the HAPPY sentiment didn’t quite fit I think that it gives a fun & interesting feature to the card.

2016SOTW6a

OK, that’s all from me today, I will be back tomorrow with the last instalment using this SOTW week set. Don’t forget that this set is 20% off this week HERE in store, for this week only.

Stamp Of The Week – All Occasion Sentiments #2

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… All Occasion Sentiments #2

AllOccasionSentiments2PP

I feel I have neglected the feminine cards this week with this set revisit, so today I went for pretty colours and flowers to accompany the ‘Hey!’ sentiment…

2016SOTW5

I started by stamping the Hey! in VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit ink, I then selected a SU! tag die to die cut the sentiment out. This in turn determined the overall size of my card which ended up being a 10.5cm square card.

2016SOTW5a

I knew I wanted to used a flower stamp on this card somewhere and so Flower Power #6 was inked as it was still on my desk 😉 This turned out well as I could then coordinated my randomly stamped BG on my base card using the matching tiny stamps from the popular Background Builders: Vines set, which I have reordered and will be back in stock over the next couple of weeks (along with 6 others).

The background was created by randomly stamping the tiny solid flower silhouette in VersaMagic Aquatic Splash ink then I stamped the tiny flower in VersaMagic Turquoise Gem twice in random places to create a dark and light shade of the flower.

It’s quite a ‘busy’ card for me with the stamped BG, but with keeping other embellishment and all the stamped images on white it still has a CAS look to it.

2016SOTW5b

As you can see I actually finished the card inside with a Happy Birthday sentiment from Simply Said Birthday which is in the same font as the Hey! I also added a trio of the flowers to accent it.

OK, that’s all from me today, I had better get some work done before these beans are awake! Don’t forget that this set is 20% off this week HERE in store. Plus we still have a CRAZY January Sale on for a limited time only, so be sure to grab a bargain while you can & retiring clear stamps or dies before they are gone for good.

Stamp Of The Week – All Occasion Sentiments #2

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… All Occasion Sentiments #2

AllOccasionSentiments2PP

Today I decided to focus on the large ‘birthday’ sentiment and wanted to create a colourful young masculine card, this is what I came up with…

2016SOTW4

I’d been looking at Papertrey Inks Make it Monday videos for technique inspiration and I came across THIS one by Lizzy Jones, which she calls Confetti Cluster Stamping. So I gave it a go using my favourite trio of colours adding in some light grey.

2016SOTW4a

I used 6 little stars from Essentially Christmas to stamp randomly inside the stars which I had drawn in pencil around my Sizzix Framelit Dies. Even though I have stamped quite a few of the stars in Raspberry Fizz I think this card still works for a masculine card. This is helped by using a neutral base card and added turquoise blue layer to matt the stamped focal panel.

I don’t think I have entered a card at The Male Room, if I have I’ve not done so for a very long time. Anyway, the current challenge HERE is a theme challenge which is ‘Anything Goes’, so I am entering my card over there.

Challenge #26

OK, that’s all from me today, I have a bean free day and LOTS to accomplish in my 9hrs!! Don’t forget that this set is 20% off this week HERE in store. Plus we still have a CRAZY January Sale on for a limited time only, so be sure to grab a bargain while you can & retiring clear stamps or dies before they are gone for good.

Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today 🙂
