Uniko - Festive Sentiments ....

.... Good morning! I'm here this morning to introduce Festive Sentiments - the next of the new release from Uniko. This set of sentiments has big, bold words along with smaller words to make so many different greetings. As I mentioned yesterday, I'm very behind on my own Christmas card stash, so I made lots with this set.



Stamps: Uniko - Festive Sentiments, Most Wonderful, Reach for the Stars
Inks: Versamark; Gina K - Black Onyx, Kraft; SU - Real Red, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron
Dies: Lil Inkers - Dual Stitched Ovals #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Real Red; Kaisercraft Design Paper - Mint Wishes, Silver Bells, Holly Jolly; Embossing Powder - White and Clear; Glitter; Vellum


I'm sure that I'm not the only one with a huge stash of designer paper. I thought using the big, bold words on design paper would be a great way to use up some of my DP stash! I found suitable papers and stamped the words with Versamark ink, heat embossed with clear powder and attached them to the front of the cards. I added some glitter to the mint green and kraft cards. On the kraft card, I also stamped the large star, embossed it in white and added some sparkle to it. On the tree card, the sentiment is stamped on vellum, which I die cut with a stitched oval and adhered on the design paper. On the inside, I cut mat layers to match the front of the card and on the white panel added a Christmas greeting and some stars.




I'm submitting this set of four cards to the current challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#15 where it's Anything Goes.


It was fun using some of my design paper stash! Now, don't forget to visit Uniko to see more inspiration projects from the rest of the team. Here's a reminder of the release schedule:

Love the font. How quick and easy to team with some pattern paper.

Scrummy cards!! What a lovely font for these centre stage sentiments (say that after a glass of wine or two). Why don't I think to stamp on patterned paper that is filling my crafty space?...so much inspiration.
