Sandie-you are here!

It is my last day as the Guest Designer for Uniko Studio and I have a couple more cards to share with you using the release stamps.

First up is I am showcasing 'Flower Power #6' with a sentiment from an older set 'Flower Power #1'




I was inspired to make this when I saw the picture at Fusion this week. I loved all the pale colours with the pops of blue and green, plus I did loosely use the sketch this week-quite unusual for me but it was my starting point when creating the design. The picture at The Runway Inspired challenge this week also helped me develop my idea of the vellum-it looks like the model's top-see photo below

This time I stamped the base of the flower in the pops of colours from the Fusion photo directly onto the card base. I then used the second part of the flower stamp embossing it on vellum with white embossing powder. I tried to curl the edges of the vellum so you would see more of these Summer colours. I popped these up on foam pads to give dimension. I looked at the card for a bit but decided something was missing and three little black gems sorted this for me. The linen impression plate gave the card more texture.

This Flower Power set is full of possibilities and well worth popping into your shopping basket!

I will enter this into Fusion-see photo and sketch below and the Mixed Media Card Challenge with a Summer these-mine being flowers and colours.

Now my second card for you today using the new 'Sweet Baby' stamp set:


I have again used white embossing but this time on this cute little baby suit. I think this is the first time I have embossed on to patterned paper but I thought it would give the soft look I wanted for a baby card. I used vellum again but this time stamped the sentiment directly onto the vellum. As I had no more of this patterned paper I decided to add my own outline of white dots onto the blue card using a white pen. I got the layout for this card from this week's sketch at STAMPlorations-see below.

I have had such a fun week being GDT for Uniko Studio and thank Bev for giving this honour. I hope I have inspired you along the way and have got you to do some shopping!!

Now it is time for you to go staright over to the main Uniko Studio Blog and start hopping!

  26. These are both stunning but I ADORE the baby card! Such a cute design and I love the sentiment on vellum. You are really good at it making cards with several layers (if I was looking at this without knowing you I'd say this is your usual style, looks so good and natural!) and I also like the twine and ribbon details! xxx
