A Stamp Set A Day - A Gift For You


Thanks for stopping by today, yesterday HERE I explained about a little blog feature during my absence to give birth to my two bundles of joy and settle into a routine once we are home.

The feature being 'A Stamp Set A Day'. I'm amazed at how many stamp sets I have designed and launched since Uniko Studio began back in February 2012 and sometimes sets can get neglected and unloved when new ones come out. So the basis of the feature is to give each set some new love! I have tried to keep the set the focus of the card/s but as you will see I have paired them with other Uniko Studio sets as they were designed that way :)

Today's featured set is A Gift For You...

It's a set I often reach for, but mainly for the sentiments! So I challenged myself to make a collection of cards and this is what I came up with...

I started out with a card this set was designed for, birthdays and I used only the set to create the card. The colour scheme is one WAY out of my comfort zone, but I think it's quite cheery :) Below is a close up of the gift and the added sparkle I added with glitter. The gift ribbon and polka dots are perfect for adding glitter and sparkle!

Next up is a male orientated card...

Again an unusual for me colour scheme, but it is fresh and zingy! This time I paired the gift with the polaroid frame from Strike a Pose! which I fussy cut out and mounted using foam adhesive. This time I added sparkle to the gift using the turquoise At You Spica Pen and stamped the sentiment onto a die cut banner.

Next I have two versions of an almost one layer card...

Another colourful and cheery card with lots of glitter! I say almost one layer card because the bow is stamped onto a separate piece of CS and fussy cut out and adhered to the card...

The second version of this card shows how this set can be used for other occasions and not just birthdays...

By simply changing the colours and sentiment to suit the occasion I created an almost one layer Christmas card.

That's all the cards I have to share with you today using this set, I hope it has given you some inspiration to revisit the set if you own it or revisit a set you have in your stash that is similar :) I'll be back tomorrow with more to share and another A Stamp Set A Day post. Until then, thank you for stopping by.
