Celebrating 12 Years – Introducing… Ink & Flip Geometric Heart Layering Stencil

Happy Wednesday & Happy Valentine’s Day 💖
Welcome to Day 1 of the 12th Birthday/February Release product introductions. This release we are adding to Uniko’s ever popular Mid Century Modern Collection, along with our unique Ink & Flip Stencil series.

With it being Happy Heart Day, I couldn’t resist kicking the introductions off with this fun two layer Ink & Flip Stencil. 

Introducing… Ink & Flip Geometric Heart Layering Stencil. So let’s have a look at the stencil in action…

I started off with one of my current favourite things, a full shaker card! They are just so fun, so much easier and quicker that the window style shakers.

Now this new Ink & Flip stencil comes in two layers, to understand this stencil visually I recommend watching my video introduction HERE.

I started with the background layer of the stencils, using Honeysuckle and then Marmalade ink.

I then added the geometric heart image using the second stencil layer. This time using Poppy and Cranberry inks. Once all the stencilling was done I created my shaker, finishing off with a sentiment from Everyday Love Sentiments and some heart dew drop embellishments.

For my second card I chose a clean & simple design using just the heart layer of the stencil.

Again I used Poppy and Cranberry inks to create the geometric heart. I then fussy cut this out, which is pretty easy with it being straight lines.

Once I’d cut the heart out I adhered it to my card using foam tape. To finish I added another sentiment from Everyday Love Sentiments and some tiny heart embellishments I’ve had for ages in my stash.

I really have had fun with this stencil and went with a striking dark grey background for my next card, this makes the heart really POP.

I used Cloudy Sky and Charcoal Soot from Altenew Gentlemen’s Grey ink collection along with Poppy and Honeysuckle, my current favourite colour combo. Red and pink together brings me cheer!

To me hearts are not just for Valentine’s. They can be Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement and more. I used Congratulations for this card from Everyday Sentiments (back in stock 20th February).

Next up I used the geometric heart layer again for an all over design on coloured card.

It’s rare I choose to use a coloured card layer to ink on, but I loved how this turned out and how it paired with a Kraft card base too.

Lastly, for today! I went for a traditional window shaker card.

To create this card I used the background layer of the stencil on its own. Inking in Honeysuckle, cleaning & then flipping to ink with Poppy.

I then used a craft knife to cut out my window to create the shaker. Again this was easy with the straight edges.

What a mammoth blog post, but hopefully it has given you a taster of the creative possibilities this two layer stencil has.

Thanks for stopping by.
