Uniko June Revisit Blog Hop

So pleased you've dropped by today as I'm sharing cards made for Uniko's revisit of a previous stamp set release. Well actually it's a stamp set and it matching die.

Here's the details ........
Prize: Originally Organic clear stamp set AND the Originally Organic Designer Dies. Or a £15 Gift Certificate if you already own the prize! You have until Midnight GMT 18th June to get your comments in. Winners announced Monday 19th June.

I'm kicking off with a couple of tags made using the stamps and their matching dies..

So easy to make, just stamp, colour, die cut and pop up onto pads for dimension. I also die cut my tags, but it would work just as well with ready made tags which can be purchased at most newsagent shops.

Stamps: Uniko, Originally Organic, Originally Organic Additions & Simply Said
OriginallyOrganicPP   OriginallyOrganicAdditionsPP    OriginallyOrganicDD
Inks:Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Spectrum Noir Colorista, sorbet, magenta, pear green, hot pink, gold
Dies: MFT Die-namics, Stitched Rectangle Word Window, Stitched Traditional Tags 

My next share is also a pretty quick and easy one to create. I stamped the flowers onto watercolour paper as I like its texture and then stamped on top straight from the little distress ink pads to add colour.

The stamped strip was trimmed and matted onto black card and a sentiment from Originally Organics Additions was added at the bottom of the card.

Stamps: Originally Organic & Originally Organic Additions

 Inks: Ranger distress, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, peacock feathers; Versafine, clear
Embossing: Ranger superfine, black

My final card for today took a little longer, but is still nice and clean looking.

I stamped the heart formation from Originally Organics Additions and coloured it in shades of grey with just a miniscule amount of red on the tiny circles. Then I placed a stitched die over the top and cut it into a circle, intentionally knowing some bits of my stamping would be trimmed off. I die cut a matching circle on the base card and then popped the stamped circle into the hole.

I finished off by stamping a sentiment from Originally Organic in red ink right into the centre of the die cut circle. I'm thinking this card looks super cool and elegant - what do you think?

Stamps: Originally Organic & Originally Organic Additions
