DT Inspiration - One Layout Three Cards

Hi! I'm here today to share three cards I've created using the same layout and lots of Uniko goodies.

First up is this card:

One of my favourite ways to create is to CASE the work of other crafters. There are so many talented crafters around it's almost impossible not to be influenced by their creations, but to actually CASE another person's card always seems a much more literal copy of their work and as such needs to be acknowledged. So here's a link to the card I've used as inspiration for this post - Leigh Penner.

I used Uniko's Equaliser stencil to produce the same colour pattern and spacing. The inks are distress oxide which give a lovely creamy effect. I added a large sentiment to finish off. Quick, easy and just how I like it!

Stamps: Uniko, Birthday Sentiments
Stencil: Uniko, Equaliser
Inks: Ranger distress, black soot, peacock feathers, fossilized amber, worn lipstick, fired brick, antique linen; Versafine, onyx black

I completely changed up the colours for my second card, but kept the large sentiment and a similar layout of strips of stamping.

Of the three cards this is actually my favourite and really shows the versatility of Uniko stamps. I'm thinking this card is fairly unisex, but with a switch of colours could easily be made more masculine or feminine.

Stamps: uniko, Simply Said Blocks, Birthday Sentiments, All Occasion Sentiments #2
Inks: Mememnto, tuxedo black, rose bud, bahama blue

So having covered a celebration and a birthday it seemed only fair to break out some Uniko Christmas stamps.

This is another quick and easy card to create and as I used my misti tool could easily be mass produced on a production line colour by colour basis.

Stamps: Uniko, Background Builders Seeing Stars, Fesctive Sentiments, Simply Said Christmas, Rustic christmas
Inks: SU, real red, old olive; Mememnto, tuxedo black

Thanks you for your time today. I hope I've given you some food for thought. And keep crafting!

  1. Clapping my hands with glee in seeing your array of cards that are absolutely sensational in being the 'same, yet different'. Wonderful showcase of the versatility of Uniko products and your creativity! The bonus: that you cased my fabulous friend, Leigh, a fellow Canadian who's 'just the down the road' in Manitoba! Love these!
