Brand Ambassador Inspiration - Keeping It Simple

Hello! It's Jane here today with a little bit of inspiration using two Uniko stamps sets.

Both of these sets are currently in the SALE at the newly re-opened Uniko store. Just click on the links to take you there.

I chose to use just two stamp sets as I can remember when I first started making cards and would look for inspiration and then discover a long list of supplies that I didn't have. So disheartening! Today I want to show you that it's easy to create cards with limited supplies by keeping it simple.

In fact my first card only uses one stamp set!

And aren't we all wanting to check in with people at the moment to let them know they're in our thoughts? For this card I simply stamped the greeting and then a trio of the little stamps in the corner. I used three colours of ink, but you could make it even simpler by just using one colour. 

And here's another tip if you're just starting out, buy the small versions of ink pads to increase the colours in your stash. Then once you're sure you like the colour you can invest in the larger size or like me continue with the small pads.

My second card uses both stamp sets.

I've kept to the same card design and just switched up the sentiment and flower image. I actually stamped the flower and leaves onto snippets of left over card and then cut them out by hand.

The flower has some delicate fronds that would be tricky to cut round so I stamped the flower onto the card first and then just cut round the main flower, adhered it on top and it looks like I'm a genius at fussy cutting!

My last card again uses both sets.

The card design is once again the same, but this time I added a trio of flowers and leaves to frame the big hello. I often repeat a card design just changing small elements to give a slightly different look. I'm thinking these three cards would make a lovely set to gift to a friend.

Thanks so much for your time today. I hope I may have given you a little insight into my thinking about keeping it simple. We would love to see any of your creations using Uniko. Just use @Unikoltd when you share on social media.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
