Something Old, Something New

Hi everyone, welcome to another weekend and I can't believe we're halfway through a second month already!

The first ever Uniko stamp I had was the fabulous Pure Florals: Gerbera set (something old) that I won over in Pixie's Snippets Playground - it became the start of a collection that has it's own box in the crafty cupboard - and I recently saw the matching die set (something new) on offer so I decided to treat myself. I stamped and die-cut the solid flowers and then picked a sentiment from the Uniko 'simply said birthday' set which I stamped straight onto a piece of hammered effect card using the Misti. When I first started card making I would computer generate most of my sentiments but now I prefer hand stamped as I've built up such a good collection to pick from. After matting on pink card and sticking to the card base all I had to do was add a few sequins to finish it off.



I shall head over to the following challenges with this

Uniko challenge 'something old, something new + option love'



Stamping Sensations challenge 'anything with flowers'


As You Like It challenge 'favourite way to add a sentiment and why'


Edited to add another challenge ~

Uniko 6th Birthday Linky Party where you have to make a birthday card to join in the fun


Thanks for popping by and for taking the time to leave me a few words. I hope you all have a super weekend whatever your plans are.

Isnt' it wonderful when you find something you love enough to build up a whole collection, such as your Uniko stamps? This is certainly a pretty flower and so nice that you treated yourself to the matching die set. A lovely creation. Perfectly placed sequins.

A beautiful card Andrea and I really like your CAS layout. I also like how you’ve given it dimension and the little gems just finish it off perfectly. Thank you for sharing this with us at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Izzy Scrap said...

My first stamp set from Uniko was the Pure Florals Poinsettia but in fact I love them all from this collection and this one is no exception. And your card is a beautiful showcase of it, it is very elegant in pink and white ! The pink sequins are the perfect final touch ! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Uniko !

Di said...

I missed this card Andrea - it's still my favourite Uniko stamp and die set as well! I'm keen to see what's gonna appear next as they're posting sneak peeks. I think one may be a large daffodil?

Gorgeous card - lovely the vibrant pink of course!

Hugs

Di xx
