Introducing ... BIG & BOLD - Wish


I'm so happy that you've stopped by the blog today as today I get to introduce the first new clear stamp set being released HERE at Uniko Studio on Monday 11th August 9am GMT. This is the little peek you got the other day in case you missed it...

How about a couple of projects showcasing this new little set...

For my first card I paired the largest sentiment in the set with one of the smaller ones and accented it with sparkly heat embossing & multicoloured stars from Label Love: Christmas.

For my second card I'm sharing today I thought I had better catch up on some Stretch Your Stamps 2 homework! I was inspired by Kristina for my card & the stamps in todays set along with Background Builders: Lattice worked perfectly...

I've never been good with watercolours, as I like to 'control' the medium I work with like you can with markers and pencils, but the technique Kristina showed in the class video lends itself to those who are not masters with watercolours!

Above is a close up of the wish, which I stamped & embossed in clear embossing powder, I kept adding clear embossing powder after each heat setting about 3 - 4 times to add a dome effect. I then fussy cut the word out!

Ok, that's all I have for you today, but how about some inspiration from the FABulous Design Team and our Guest Designers this month Sarah from Sazzle Dazzle Crafts & Sandie from London Days:

Ren-Yi (Summer Break)
Taheerah (Not Participating Today)

  9. I love that fantastic big wish. Gorgeous cards. Amazing fussy cutting and I love that watercolour background.

  10. You fussy cut the word?!! Okay, that just makes you Wonder Woman in my eyes because I would have managed to somehow eliminate the cursive and been left with four separate letters! That is awesome!!! :)

  11. Wow, Bev, two stunning cards to showcase this release! Love the big bold Wish and the pairing of stars in the first and the coloured lattice in the second (I'm also behind in the class homework!!), Fussy cutting out Wish? OMG - the awesome factor just went up a zillion notches! WOW!
