Stamp of the Week is a new feature here at Uniko.
It is one I have been wanting to do for some time & with the results of the recent survey I did it is something 69% of you wanted too. Even though every other month the DT and I revisit a previously released set, there are MANY more clear stamp sets that deserve some LOVE!
So, what is stamp of the week?
Well, each week I will be focusing on a different stamp set on this the Uniko website blog, I will be featuring a variety of cards, tags, projects and hopefully videos. The stamp of the week will be the main focus but I will also be showing how it pairs with other products from Uniko & other reputable companies. Along with all that the featured stamp set will be available in store at a discounted price for that week only.
This weeks stamp of the week – Flower Power #1
Do you ever have THOSE days? Those where everything you do or touch goes drastically wrong? Well, I have been having one of THOSE Mondays!
I was quite pleased with myself this morning, things seemed to be going well, beans fed, nappies changed, dressed & all set for playgroup & even not much fuss when I put their new shoes on (they’re not quite sure about shoes yet!) Grandma arrives and off we set for playgroup, then the THOSE starts, slow puncture on one of the pram tyres as we almost get to the playgroup venue, Grandma carries on & I run back to the house, only 10 minutes away to fetch a new inner tube & pump. To cut a not so long but possibly boring story short I got it fixed, the beans enjoyed playgroup & that was that. THEN from that incident things just didn’t go as planned, hence my lateness in posting today, poor quality photos and a project that I didn’t plan on!!
Hopefully you can see that I have used the large solid flower from Flower Power #1 as a poinsettia. Yep, I am on a poinsettia kick at the minute! I also masked and stamped the larger flower from the trio contained in the set, stamping it in Pink Grapefruit for a little contrast…
For the poinsettia centres I used the holly berry trio from Label Love: Christmas & Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions. The stamped sentiment is from Pure Florals: Poinsettia & I paired it with the SU! Christmas Greetings peace die.
I wanted to show you that just because the stamp set features a graphic flower & non Christmas themed sentiments it can still be used for a holiday card. However, with a simple colour & sentiment change it could be an everyday card too.
I hope I have inspired you a little this evening & I haven’t put you off with my ramblings and woes! I will be back tomorrow in a more timely fashion with my next project and post featuring this set. Until then, thank you for stopping by today.
