Stamp Of The Week – All Occasion Sentiments #2
Hey & Happy New Year!
Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW).
Basically each week I will be choosing a stamp set to dust off & give some inky love to. I am open to requests of stamp sets to revisit, so if you have a request either leave a comment or drop me an email. Along with giving the set some love, the featured set is also discounted in store for that week.
This week I am dusting off… All Occasion Sentiments #2
Now, I have been busy behind the scenes over the Christmas Holiday period, preparing for ALL the exciting things 2016 😉 and getting ahead with things like SOTW. I realised with all the crazy in preparation for Christmas & my life with two 16 month old twin boys (the beans), life isn’t going to calm down anytime soon, so I needed to plan, organise and prepare myself – Lol! So, fingers crossed I theoretically shouldn’t get behind with things!
Anyway, here I am with my first card instalment for the first SOTW of 2016…
I chose this set as it is full of possibilities and perfect for creating cards to celebrate the New Year along with birthdays & general hello’s that *hopefully* you will see this week on the blog.
For my card I have paired the set with three other Uniko clear stamp sets, Background Builders: Christmas, Essentially Christmas & Garlands Galore. I love designing the clear stamps so that they can be mixed and matched together to create endless possibilities and give value for money 🙂
I started out by using a Sizzix framelits star die to die cut the aperture out of my white CS panel. I then stamped the trio of liner stars down the edge before adding some glitter using a glue pen to the die cut star edges. The panel was temporarily adhered to the card base so that I could stamp the ‘HAPPY’ and then the New Year was stamped afterwards staring backwards with the ‘R’. Before I adhered the panel to the card base with foam adhesive I decided to add a few random stars stamped in the same VersaMagic Turquoise Gem ink as the ‘HAPPY’.
Hopefully this card will soon arrive at its destination and brought some cheer to one of my friends New Year. One of my resolutions this year is to send ‘more’ if not ALL of the cards I make in 2016. I am really bad at sending cards I make which is terrible for a card maker 🙁 so I WILL rectify this in 2016.
OK, that’s enough waffle from me today, 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 🙂
