Stamp Of The Week – Pure Florals Poinsettia
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 – Pure Florals: Poinsettia
I’m back a little later than planned today, but that’s kinda the story of my life at the moment with the beans. With one walking inside & one almost walking I need eyes in the back of my head & I could do with 10 pairs of hands!! To say life is crazy & the days zooming by is an understatement, but hey, it’s all good fun and I am enjoying it.
Anyway, back to business. Whilst the beans were napping this afternoon I got to making todays card…
It’s an idea I have had for a while & seen around blog land, but I haven’t had the right tools until this week when my Pretty Pink Posh order arrived 🙂 I couldn’t resist the mini tags die collection Paulina designed and of course some sequins made it into my basket too!
I wasn’t so sure about my card at first once it was assembled, it looked a bit ‘messy’. But now I have photographed it I am kinda liking it – LOL!
I started out by stamping & embossing the poinsettia in white on some Real Red SU! card stock. I then placed my tag dies altogether on the embossed image & die cut them in one swoop! I then used the negative of my die to help me place, position and stamp the poinsettia on my base card in black ink.
I then adhered the tags using foam adhesive to create this almost jigsaw like effect, with added dimension. A simple sentiment and a few sequins finished the card off.
Ok, that’s all from me today using this set, but I will be back again tomorrow with more to share. Before I go however, we have our monthly challenge HERE. This month it is all about geometrics and we have 2 awesome Guest Designers along with inspiration from the Design Team. Be sure to check it out & join in, there are prizes up for grabs!
Thanks for stopping by today.
