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
Today is my last post using this stamp set as the Stamp Of The Week, I have had so much fun giving this set some love and showing you some of the many possibilities using it.
We started off the week HERE with the October Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY. You still have a few hours to comment along the hop to be in the chance of winning this set or a eGift Certificate to the same value.
Today I dusted off a trio of Copic markers and did a spot of colouring. I found it very relaxing last night and enjoyed the time my head got to think and wander in the peacefulness!
I was inspired by a card I pinned recently HERE and HERE by the awesome Julia Altermann who is Guest Designing with us for our October challenge HERE. I simply LOVE the layout of Julia’s card & the fun tag flap, so I had a go myself! Another detail I adore and CASED is how Julia added the twine to the card front. Instead of embellishing sequins, as I didn’t quite have what I wanted (looks like a #PPP shopping spree is required!) I used SU! candy dots and tiny rhinestones. Also I haven’t quite mastered Julia’s dot effect, she is a pro at that.
After colouring the poinsettia with my Copic markers I gave it a good douse of Wink Of Stella for that added sparkle & shine. I wish I had the patience to colour like this more as I really like the results.
One last photo showing you the sentiment inside. I stamped it so that it can be seen when the flap is opened up…
There are two challenges currently going that this card is perfect for. First up is the Happy Little Stampers challenge HERE which is to use a poinsettia & the second challenge is HERE with Addicted to CAS which is Sparkle! Be sure to check them both out.
Don’t forget the discounted price for the Poinsettia set expires tonight at midnight BST, so be sure to order tonight HERE! I will be back tomorrow with a my next stamp of the week, until then, thank you for stopping by & joining in on the fun
