Uniko Re-visit Blog Hop

Today Uniko is having a bloghop to revisit an older stamp set. Well actually several stamp sets and a couple of stencils too!

Simply Said Blocks

Simply Said Blocks II

My first share is a tag with Halloween in mind:

I used Prismacolor pencils to colour through the Scattered Polka Dots stencil, some on white and some on black card stock. I moved the stencil around to get a good coverage of spots.

I used the outline stamp from Uniko Style to make my ghostie, added a sentiment and some ribbon and called it done.

Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said Blocks, Uniko Style
Stencil: Uniko, Scattered Polka Dots
Ink:Memento, tuxedo black
Die MFT Die-namics, stitched traditional tags
Colours: Prismacolor

My next card has clean lines and would be suitable for those difficult to create for males.

I added a strip of silver sparkle card matted onto dark blue card and popped a sentiment on top.

Stamps: Uniko, Scattered Polkadots Large Background, Simply Said Blocks II
Ink: SU, blueberry bushel

My final card takes me back to those favourite purple shades.

I took three shades of purple and moved the stamp slightly as I added each colour. the whole thing was die cut and matted onto matching purple card stock.

I finished off with a sentiment and heart strip from Simply Said Blocks.

Stamps: Uniko, Scattered Polka Hearts Large Background, Simply Said Blocks, Simply Said Blocks II
Inks: SU, pink pirouette, sweet sugarplum, berry blaze
Die: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables; Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles

  1. Lovely projects with those stamps and stencils, Jane ! Your tag is so cute with the Halloween colours, and your monster is more adorable than frightening ! I wouldn't have think to use the polka dots stamp for a masculine card, as you say, so hard to do. So thanks for the tip ! And I love your card with all these tiny hearts in a purple gradient, really beautiful. Have a fabulous weekend !x

  2. Love how you made the flower into a little ghost. I didn't see that at all, but I will now, everytime I take them out! :)
