Uniko Studio - Revisit Flower Power #4 ...

....  Good morning! Looks like spring has finally arrived in Northville, Michigan.  We've had temperatures above freezing for several days in a row, the sun has been shining and the snow is melting - yea!!!!! 

This morning the Uniko Studio DT is revisiting one of Bev's stamps sets - Flower Power #4 which is a lovely set containing pretty floral elements and spring/Easter sentiments.  Here's my card:

Mother - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Flower Power #4
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Hello Honey, Certainly Celery
Dies: Waltzingmouse - Mother
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Certainly Celery; SU Card - Certainly Celery; Vellum; Martha Stewart Border Punch


I suddenly realised that it's Mother's Day in the UK this weekend and I needed a couple of cards to send home.  I've used the colours from this week's Less is More - LIM#214 (although I'm not submitting this card as it's not CAS), and I've used the layout from Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL#02 (where they're revisiting all the early sketches).

I created lots of little flowers on the card, stamping the outline first in Hello Honey, then the solid flower in Daffodil Delight and added the little edges in So Saffron.  These stamps are really easy to line up.  I used the larger leaf, that's what I'm calling it, and stamped in green .  I covered the card with a sheet of vellum giving a lovely soft front.  I punched a border in some green design paper and added that to the edge of the card and finished the front with a wonderfully ornate die cut word "Mother" and a simple little flower.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of green design paper and on the white panel added some flowers.  Excuse the marks on the white panel, I erased the greeting to show the panel.


The rest of the Design Team have made such pretty cards with Flower Power #4 - take a sneak peak here and this is the order of our hop:

Deborah - that's me!

How about a Giveaway?  Simply comment along the hop for a chance to win the featured set or a Gift Certificate to the same value if you already own the set.  You have until midnight (GMT) on Wednesday 18th March to comment.  The winner will be announced on the Uniko Stuido blog on Thursday 19th March



That's all for now - have a great day.

Gorgeous, elegant and totally perfect for Mothers' Day Debs. Great colour scheme and sorry it's not suitable for Less is More ;( but I'm loving that layer of vellum. Very classy. Sarah x
