Merry Christmas 2016!

Merry Christmas!

I thought I would pop by to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas and share one of my last minute CAS Christmas cards I made this week…

The ‘merry’ die cut is Stampin’ Up! and die cut from black and gold metallic paper. The foliage is a mix of stamps from Rustic Wreath and Background Builders: Winter Vines and the sentiment is from Simply Said II.

I hope you all have a wonderful day spent with family, friends and loved ones, whether you celebrate the occasion or not.



Introducing…Christmas Sparkle & Winter Foliage


Thanks for all the lovely comments yesterday, didn’t the Design Team do an awesome job showcasing the new Marvellous Mehndi and Simply Said II clear stamps? If you missed it you can catch up HERE.

I’m SO glad that you have decided to come back today 😉 as we have the last two product introductions for Sept/Oct product  release. That means tomorrow is full reveal and release day!

Anyway, lets have a look at Christmas Sparkle and Winter Foliage. Both these clear stamp sets are awesome on their own, but they can be used together beautifully AND they work with other previously released Uniko Christmas/Winter themed clear stamps 😉

*WARNING* My first card is rather bright, so you may require sunglasses!


The current challenge over at AAA Cards HERE, which is the masking technique inspired my card. I also wanted it to be bright and cheerful to coordinate with the sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #4.


I started by stamping both the outline bauble and inner sparkle bauble in the centre of the white CS layer with SU! Melon Mambo ink. I then masked the bauble to stamp the baubles either side in SU! Tempting Turquoise and Lucky Limeade. Once I had done all the stamping I added clear Wink Of Stella to all the baubles for added shimmer.


My next card is another quick and easy mass produceable Christmas card using Winter Foliage…


I’ve used all the stamps contained in the Winter Foliage set to create a cluster bough of foliage. I added in the smaller pine bough from Jingle Bells and a sentiment raised on foam adhesive from the upcoming Simply Said II.
