Uniko Revisit Blog Hop

I'm delighted to be here today to take part in the Uniko Revisit Blog Hop. This month we are taking another look at the Big & Bold Wish stamp set and its matching dies.

BIG&BOLDWishPP      BBWishDDies

I've made a couple of bright fun cards to showcase the versatility of these sets:

I've been trying to think outside of the box and used the candle stamp and flame in a bit of a quirky way. I chose two colours of ink and stamped them in a fairly random way. I then stamped and die cut the wish sentiment, stamped the BIG! and matted the whole thing onto matching yellow and red card stock.

And that led me on to thinking about creating a whole frame using the candle stamps. I used a piece of squared grid paper to help me line up the position and depth of each stamping. I kept with the same colours of inks, but this time just stamped the whole greeting into the middle of the card.

I matted this second card in the same way as the first.

Stamps: Uniko, BIG & BOLD Wish
Inks: SU, real red, daffodil delight; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Die: Uniko, BIG & BOLD Wish

OK, so how would you like to win these goodies? Simply leave me a comment and hop round the blogs and leave comments on the rest of the DT who are taking part and it could be you!
