Sponged and stamped

Hey all, I am sharing another card, this one was also from 2 weeks back.
I started off with twisted citron, and fired brick distress inks to sponge the front in a random order.
Then used the stamps from Uniko - background builders, winter vine addition to stamp all over the background.
The sentiment is computer generated.
A few jewels to finish off.

Snowflakes and shimmer

hey all, I am up with a card, not my usual posting time, but I wanted to post when I have time on my hand. As you all know that my dad is here, and I am very busy, no time to craft, I guess crafting has taken a back seat.
However I took time off, and sat home to explore my new ScanNcut, which I bought in Hong Kong over the weekend, and made a card, but not posting that one now.
The card I am posting was made almost 2 weeks back. It is already winging to Canada, it was one of many cards I made for my friend.

I used all white here for base and front, Used 3 shades of blue inks to stamp the snowflakes from Uniko, and the sentiment was computer generated.
I framed it with a silver glitter strip.
A few silver jewels to finish off. Very simple.

Uniko Release Day

Hi friends, I hope you had enjoyed the sneak peeks, and the introductions. We finally bring you the full sets.
Here they are:

Isn't this a lovely set, so many possibilities as I said earlier. 
I had used all kraft here. I used a solo solid tree stamp in green, and brown for the trunk, I used the stars and heat embossed in gold, the sentiment also from the new release. A brown glitter strip and a few jewels to finish off.

Linking this with the Double D challenge

This card is my favorite, I used a white textured base card for the base. I had used the striped tree and I stamped it 3 times, and cut short of 2 stripes for the second and third step. I had used foam adhesive to add dimension to the tree, and used wink of stella on the white stripes, to mimic snow.
I stamped the tiny trees in a row on a smaller panel., and added the big one, and stamped the sentiment on the panel.

Can you see the foam adhesive layering?

I have used the pear pizzaz and the wild wasabi inks from SU. Then stamped the stars in red ink. A few jewels, and the sentiment is computer generated. That's it.

Linking this with :

This is a One layer card. I started off with Twisted citron, and barn Door distress inks, I sponged in random fashion, then I simply chose all the sentiments and stamped in random. Used the tiny pine leave and pine cones stamps from the Rustic Wreath set, and stamped to fill in between the sentiments, a few jewels to finish off.


I used SU wild wasabi to stamp the wreath, and then used a brown ink to stamp the small twigs, and red for the berries. Just 3 pine cones in brown, and a few jewels and sentiment below the wreath to finish off.

Linking this with Fusion


Again all kraft here, I used Momento Olive ink for the wreaths, and then twigs in red, and cones in brown. The holly and poinsettia are from background winter vines set. I stamped the sentiments in the center of the wreaths. A few jewels ti finish off.

I hope you are inspired by the cards I made, and I say it again that these are must to have sets in your stash for your Christmas cards.

I had used Barn door distress ink to ink up the wreath, and then used the other twig stamp to heat emboss in gold. I stamped the cones in brown ink, and the sentiment in the center of the wreath.
I also stamped some scattered leaves, like it is falling to the ground , in front of the door.
Few jewels to finish off.

I had stamped the wreath in Wild Wasabi from SU, and then added the other twigs in brown, and some red berries. Sentiment is computer generated you will see many cards with this sentiment, as she wanted her sentiment in French, and these cards are winging their way to Canada very soon.

I started with my background first, I used twisted citron to create the smooshed background. Then I used the Winter Foliage set here for this card, I stamped the pine leaves in 2 shades of green. and used brown ink for the cones. Lined my panel with a red base to give a framed look, and few big red rhine stones. The sentiment is from another set, it is heat embossed in black on vellum, I stamped the other part on the card. Added it to a white base to finish off.
