Uniko - Revisit ......

....  Hello and Good Morning!  It's time for our August 2015 Team Blog Hop at Uniko.  Beverley usually releases new sets every other month, and in the month where there are no new stamps, we get the chance to revisit some of Bev's previous releases.  This month we're having a play with a couple of sets Beautiful Blooms I and Beautiful Blooms II, both feature fabulous flowers, appropriate for summer.  Here's my card:


Stamps: Uniko - Beautiful Blooms II, All Occasion Sentiments #3
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride
Dies: Die-namics - Thank You; Winnie & Walter - Party Confetti Cutaways; Spellbinders - Nested Pennants (S5-025)
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Cuttlebug EF - Geometric Rings; SU Card - Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Blushing Bride; Vellum; Gold Embossing Powder; Clear Embossing Powder; Gold Mirri Card


I used a few challenges making this card.  The colours are from CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#135, I've used vellum which is the featured trend at Just Us Girls - JUGS#305 and I've cased Michele's beautiful card at MUSE - MUSE#128.

I stamped the outline flower from Beautiful Blooms II in Versamark and heat embossed them with gold powder.  Then I stamped the smaller shading image in three different colours on to the vellum and heat embossed with clear powder.  Then I cut them all out!  I cut a panel of white card, slightly smaller than the card base, embossed it and adhered it to the card base.  I die cut the word "thank" from the same three colours and adhered them to create the effect of a drop shadow.  I stamped the word "you" in Versafine on vellum, heat embossed it with clear powder and used a die to cut out a flag.  I finished the front with a gold flourish.  I've not had chance to finish the inside yet - but will add a photo once it's done.

Thank You sq - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Now it's time to check out what Bev and the rest of the team have made using either Beautiful Blooms I or Beautiful Blooms II:

This CAS is a catch-eyes, so elegant and delicate! Love so much the effect of the gold embossing and vellum for these sweet blooms and the contrast with the dry -embossed background. Really classy!

Fabulous card, great use of vellum I really must give it a go! I've only really used vellum for sentiment strips before but may just have to try flowers!
