Introducing… Background Blocks Wonky Stripes

Hey & Happy Weekend!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the October 2017 product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks and we are now onto day 4 of the product introductions. You can catch up HERE, HERE and HERE with day 1, 2 and 3.

Today the Design Team and I are introducing the next stamp in the Background Blocks series called Wonky Stripes. Like the other Background Blocks clear stamps, this is a fun block of pattern that can be used for so many different occasions as you will see from the inspiration from the DT.

I had so many ideas for this stamp, but limited time to make my samples this week, hence my lateness today. My apologies for that, I was up late packaging a restock of stamps that cam yesterday for Stamp Magic tomorrow!

Anyway, how about a look at my first card…

I decided I needed to give my Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers an outing and quickly watercolored this background and then heat embossed the Background Blocks Wonky Stripes in white. I then used a Stampin’ Up! Stitched Square Framelit die to die cut it and added a small Uniko Designer Die Snowflake. This feature element is mounted on foam adhesive. The sentiment is from Simply Said Christmas and stamped in Lawn Fawn Manatee ink.

Next up I decided to use the wonky stripes like a patterned paper panel, like I did on my Festive Sentiments sample HERE.

I simply used my MISTI tool to stamp the stripes along the edge using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I then added another shorter panel stamped with a sentiment from Festive Sentiments and the holly berries and leaves from Winter Foliage. The two panels are divided by a small strip of red card.

Stamp Of The Week – Label Love: Christmas

Hey!

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. Though 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… Label Love: Christmas

LabelLoveChristmas

As I missed half of the week last week (due to November Release prep) & I will be using last weeks Stamp Of The Week, Label Love: Thank you BOTH clear stamp sets are available at a discount for this week in store HERE & HERE.

Anyway, on to today’s trio of cards…

SOTW15

Today I wanted to focus on the sentiments & the smaller images in the set to create CAS cards easy to mass produce in a hurry if needed!

Here is a close up of the trios details…

As you can see I kept the stamped colours to a minimum, basically black with a tiny bit of red for the holly leaves & silver for the snowflake. Embellishments were also kept to a minimum using just rhinestones & glitter. I felt that the diagonal striped card provided a contrast to the minimalistic design but only seeing a small border around the stamped panel kept the overall design CAS.

Ok, that’s all from me today, I’m super busy in the home studio this week preparing for the upcoming November Release on the 11th November :) Plus I’m Guest Designing for one of my favourite challenges & Uniko is still sponsoring the ongoing TIME OUT Challenge HERE. All this fun starts on Thursday HERE, I hope to see you!

Until, tomorrow with my next Stamp Of The Week post, thank you for stopping by today.
