Uniko January Release - Showcasing Always & Forever

Hello and welcome!

I'm so pleased that you've dropped by today as I'm showcasing one of the stamp sets in the new Uniko January Release. Available to buy now at Uniko - HERE.

The stamp set I'm using is Always & Forever, a re-release of a set that's been brought out of retirement just in time for Valentine's Day.

Here's my cards:

The two largest and two smallest hearts are stamped and hand cut. The medium heart has been die cut from a strip that I stamped with the Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts.

I used some more of the Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts to create a horizontal strip and outlined it with some narrow washi tape. I then stamped and hand cut the two large hearts.

Both the largest and smallest heart are stamped and hand cut and the medium heart is die cut with a stamped sentiment in the middle.

Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; SU, berry burst, pink pirouette, rose red, real red
Dies: Lawn fawn, outside in stitched hearts
Washi tape from my stash

Do pop on over to the Uniko blog - HERE - to see the other stamps in this release and how the DT have used them.  Going to make you want them I'm sure! And of course there's the usual blog hop and chance to win the entire release.

Jane - that's me

Thanks for your time today and keep crafting!
