5 cards, 1 stamp set - Uniko - VIDEO

Hi Everyone. So in my last post, I was a bit smug and said I felt like I was on top of things - not any more. I'm moving into panic mode now as I try to work out if I have enough Christmas cards. The answer was no, so I got out the fabulous Block Party Christmas stamp set from Uniko and had a good play for well over an hour.

The result is 5 cards from 1 set - and you could easily do lots of multiples with this set - and a video showing all the different types. 


I always say that if I get 5 cards out of one stamp set it's been well used (I'm working through my NBUS, I promise!), so this has been well used indeed.

1. Copic Colouring


2. One colour stamping


3. Emboss resist
 

4. Stencil Overlay (Distress Oxides)


5. Paper Piecing
 

Hoping you are all getting on well with Christmas prep - I have ordered the chicken from the butchers, so we are good to go there.

I'm linking this up to the Uniko challenge for this month, #44, which is Christmas.



Also Pixie's Snippets Playground weeks 311 and 312 as I used a lot of scrap white card (salvaged from cards that didn't make it) and patterned paper scraps. 



Happy crafting everyone!

I love this stamp set, the only reason I resisted buying it was because I've got about 700 NBUS Christmas stamps to get used first! Great ideas of how to use it, think I might need it after all....

What a great set of cards Ruth, showing so many ways to use that great stamp! Reminded me I have the Uniko equivalent Birthday stamp - as yet unused plus one for the Playground. Must use it in the New Year - love all your ideas!

Wow! This is one of my favourite stamps and I think your cards are just wonderful. I particularly love the shimmer on the emboss resist card, and the fun paper piecing too. Great work. Thank you so much for playing along with our challenge at Uniko. Deborah, DT.

Fabulous showcases of the versatility of this stamp that definitely became one of my Christmas 'go to' images this season! Glad you didn't ask us to choose a favourite; all are wonderful! Thank you for sharing your creativity in the UNIKO gallery!
