Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas
Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week.
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… Rustic Christmas
How could I not feature this set, with the BIG day only weeks away?! I still have a HUGE amount of Christmas cards to make, so this set will be seeing quite a bit of ink!
Here is todays card…
As you may remember I do like adding a diagonal interest to my card layers & this style was perfect for using up some scraps of DP that I have laying around. The monochrome green colour combo was inspired by the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge HERE, which is to choose a colour combo from any they have used in 2015.
Whilst I was looking through the combos I came across this one from Challenge #118 (seen below) which was perfect for my card 🙂
The shades of green I used were ultimately determined by the colour of the polka dot DP from Papertrey Ink, which I think is Ripe Avocado. My card base is that shade too, along with the strip of card along the diagonal. I stamped the tree & sentiment in SU! Always Artichoke for my 3rd darker shade of green. I added a trio of creamy white hearts to the sentiment for a little bit of simple added interest without overpowering the main design.
I am rather pleased with the design of this card and I have already made a small batch of green cards a couple in a slightly different green combination, but I think it would look lovely in a traditional red & green combo as well as a more modern colour scheme. I will try an remember to share photos of them if I do any other colours 😉
Don’t forget that this set is 20% off this week HERE in store. Plus we still have our festive shipping offers on!
Anyway, I have a few more minutes of the beans nap time, so I had better finish getting a couple of orders packed up. It’s a sunny afternoon, so a nice walk to town and the post office is on the cards.
Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today 🙂
