Uniko Studio GD - Love and Friendship

Hello, everyone!  As Guest Designer at Uniko Studio this fortnight, I have made another card for our Love and Friendship challenge!  I hope you will come over and join in the fun!  

I thought an anniversary card would fit this theme nicely.  For something a little different, I created my own background by stamping the flower from Flower Power #6 clear stamps repeatedly with various inks (listed below) and also heat embossing it in gold and clear.  It was fun!


Next I heat embossed the small butterfly from English Country Garden - Butterflies clear stamps twice, each in copper on the outer edge and gold in the center.  I fussy-cut and attached, adding gold sequins to each one.  I heat-embossed the Happy Anniversary sentiment in gold on a vellum strip.

Here's a list of other products used:
Ink:  Ancient Page - Mandarin, Sienna, Sunburst, Saffron; Brilliance - Sunflower Yellow, Rocket Red Gold; SU - Only Orange, Apricot Appeal
Embossing powder:  The Artful Stamper - Gold, Clear, Copper Pearl
Cardstock:  SU - Apricot Appeal and Only Orange
Sentiment:  A Muse Artstamps

Thank you to Uniko Studio for having me as your Guest Designer! It was my pleasure!


I hope you will head over to Uniko Studio to see the inspiration by the Design Team. There's still plenty of time to play along in our Love and Friendship challenge - it's open until Friday, January 30, at 8 a.m. GMT.  Please come over and join us!

I would also like to support these fun challenges:

  2. Pixie's Snippet Playground All cardstock/vellum, except the white card base, were leftover snippets 3/3
