Stamp Of The Week – Beautiful Blooms I

Hey!

Happy Monday and Happy Halloween to those who celebrate. This week I have opted for a seasonal change and I have gone for a floral set to revisit. This week I am dusting off Beautiful Blooms I and the coordinating Beautiful Blooms I Designer Dies

Floral clear stamps are good all year round and they can also be prettied up to go with the seasons, as I will hopefully show you this week 😉 When they have a set of dies to match, there are even more possibilities!

Here is what I came up with for today…

On my card I have used the smallest of the blooms and the coordinating die. I was inspired by the pretty photo inspiration over a Fusion Card Challenge seen HERE and below, soft and subtle are the key words.

New Banner-017

I was also inspired to create a celebration card. “Less is More” are celebrating a BIG milestone this week, 300 challenges HERE. The theme this week is to create a celebratory CAS card.

I started by die cutting the bloom and then temporarily adhering the panel to my card base, so I could stamp through the die cut and have perfect positioning. The MISTI is on my Christmas wish list and I am dropping HUGE hints to Santa that I could *really* do with this tool now 😉

Down the edge of my panel I adhered some SU! Washi tape, I can’t quite remember what collection it came from (sorry) the colour is either Pool Party or Mint Macaron. The sentiment is from Simply Said and stamped in Going Grey ink and I added a few rhinestones to finish the card off.

That’s all I have to share today, my mojo is a little slow as the beans decided to do some climbing antics at nap time and therefore didn’t nap. Mummy therefore didn’t get her usual lunchtime R&R and is feeling a little tired. I will however be back tomorrow with more using this set.

This week I am giving you the opportunity to purchase both the Beautiful Blooms I clear stamp set and Designer Dies in a bundle at 15% off HERE for this week only.

Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by :)

Today is the start of the Uniko April Challenge HERE. This month we have another FUN and easy challenge for you to join in on…

UnikoChallenge#4

This time it is a theme challenge and we want to see you using metallics on your creations.

You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products.  And, if you do use Uniko, there’s an extra chance to win a prize.

Before I get to my project be sure to check out the Design Team inspiration HERE and also link up your creations.

This is how I was inspired to use metallics…

USC#31

I’ve been wanting to pair the recently release Fun Flowers with Natures Treasures II and so that’s what I did on my card today! I decided to use heat embossing and gold embossing powder as my metallic element.

I also added some SU! metallic gold washi tape, something I rarely add to my projects. I created the stamped section by masking off the bottom half of my project, stamping and shaking on embossing powder as I went. This was so I knew where my images were to stamp the next and also so I only heat set it one time.

I added a sentiment from Simply Said Birthday, which will be back in stock in the next week or so along with some metallic nail heads.

Now, if you need more incentive to play along with the challenge here are the details of the prizes.
