It's the weekend and also day 2 of the Christmas release at Uniko.
First off the block is this cute folksy snowflake stencil.
I only used one of these gorgeous snowflakes, more of the rest later!
I used some plain white embossing paste over some Kraft card initially, cutting out the single flake from the rest for this. To get the shimmer I popped the stencil back over the raised image and added some Nuvo glimmer paste before mounting on a cream square over some frayed burlap continuing the folksy vibe. On a scrap of the kraft I stamped and embossed one of the SS blocks with white EP and trimmed to size.
I used a similar double layering of the stencil on this card using the Scandinavian Christmas stencil.
This time I used Ranger Texture Paste which allowed me to add colour over the white stenciling.
The colour was added with a Qtip so that I didn't get any colour where it wasn't required.
I used DOx in Gathered Twigs, Candied Apple and Broken China for the total Scandi feeling.
Using the layout at Freshly Made Sketches, I trimmed down the stenciled panel, adding it to a white base card before adding a sentiment on a die cut oval mounted on a scalloped die cut inked with the Candied Apple. A few die cut pine branches cut from scrap white were coloured with Gathered Twigs and slipped under the sentiment panel. The stamped sentiment is from the Most wonderful set.
What do you think of these new releases, fab aren't they?
Check out the rest of the DT for more tempting ideas.
