Hello everyone! We have our guest designer Laura Elliot with us today to share with us her project:
I am very humbled to be acting as Guest Designer for Uniko Studio following my challenge win last month for my vintage card. I can tell you, my Mum is so excited about receiving it for Mother’s Day! I was really surprised when I checked to see who had won and found it was my card. I thought all the other cards entered were amazing and so did not expect that I would be given the top spot.
My very first Uniko Studio purchase was the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemums stamps and they have become so very special to me because of the recognition I have had for cards made using them – my vintage card included. I decided therefore that I owed it to them to use them again for my Guest Design spot card.I decided to use both blues and greens in my design. The thing that really caught my eye in the photo was the really defined green lines on the white flower and I knew that the Chrysanthemum flower stamped in green would be a prefect representation of this. As well as this stamp I also made use of the Bright Butterflies Dies, Bright Butterflies accent stamp in order to create the look of lace ribbon and finally, a sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments 1.
Have a try, look at the layouts others use, think outside the box and above all, have fun. I find card making so very relaxing (when it goes well!!) and I hope you will too. As you begin to get more confident, so too will your creativity.
