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
Wow, we are up to day 3 of my first ‘Stamp of the Week’, this week is flying by for sure! Anyway, I hope you are enjoying this new feature here on the Uniko website blog and I am back today with another card featuring this set…
Today I have gone with more traditional Christmas colours though with a modern edge, the popular trio kraft, white & red. I started out by stamping and embossing the poinsettia in white onto a red circle die cut and mounted it onto a scalloped edge circle die. (These are Papertrey Ink Limitless Layers Dies). I then looped white sating ribbon & overlaid thinner red satin ribbon to peek from either side of the focal image.
It isn’t normal for me to double mat layer or use so many layers on a card, but with keeping the design layout, colours and stamps used to a minimum you can still achieve a CAS look to your card. It is also very rare that I finish up the inside of my card, very lazy of me really and I was inspired by Deborah from the DT to change this as Deborah ALWAYS finishes the inside of her cards! So today I have…
I kept it very simple and simply embossed the poinsettia in white on to a kraft CS layer, matted with white and added a simple sentiment stamped in black. I left plenty of room for my own message inside too.
Well that is all I have to share with you for today, I will be back again later in the week with more using this set 🙂 Until then, thank you for stopping by today.
