Good morning peeps.
It's the weekend so why not settle down with a cuppa and browse the Uniko DT's favourite stamps and stencils that have been released in 2018.
As usual leave a comment as you hop along for the chance to win, all the details are over on the Uniko site. You should have come from Jane's blog but don't worry all the links are at the end of this post.
Anyway without further ado here is my card using my favourite stamp set.
When I first saw the Pure Florals - Peony set, I just fell in love with this gorgeous blousy bloom.
Pure Florals: Peony £15 Clear Stamp Set
There have been lots of fab sets released in 2018 but although only released in December, this is going to be a firm favourite, I can tell. The large flower stamp just doesn't need anything else to make it shine, so I gave it the CAS treatment.
I used the colours from this month's Flower Challenge of pink and grey to create this 5 x 7 card.
To start, I tool a panel of grey Kaisercraft textured card in Smoke and stamped my layout with Versamark and fine white EP, masking where necessary. The large peony was then stamped on watercolour paper with Versamark and heat embossed with the same white EP. I then added some DI, Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserve and Picked Raspberry, on my craft mat to colour the petals in a w/c technique. The same technique for the leaves but using Pine Needles, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint and in the end I cut away all of them except the odd few. My flower center was a little bit of Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.
When dry, I fussy cut it and put it to one side while I dealt with the base panel. It was trimmed to be slightly less than the white base card, then I added my sentiment from Wonderful Day, embossed with white EP. The large pink peony was then added over the embossed design with foam pads.
