Uniko Guest Design - Surprise Stencil Release - Scattered Polka Hexagons

I'm back today to share my next card for the mini stencil release from Uniko. This one is the Scattered Polka Hexagons and I thought it would go perfectly with my last purchase from them, the Bee Happy set. I've been itching to ink this up and they go very well together.


It's been an age since I made a spinner and the sizes of the stamps just worked out perfectly. I started by inking a piece of yellow card stock using the stencil with some Wild Honey distress ink to get a tone on tone look.

I kept the middle of the card free from ink and using some Versa Mark ink stamped the heart from the stamp set. I then heat embossed with WOW! Gold glitter. I cut out my spinner element from the panel and before I realised it, I crumpled up and threw the cut out piece in the bin! Normally I keep it to place in the space so it looks more uniform and you don't get the white, but it worked out fine without it.

I then stamped the bee on some white card, fussy cut it and started assembling the pieces. I use my giant roll of 3M tape for the backing as I can cut it to size easily. I also use the MFT spin and slide discs which are light and small enough for tiny stamps like this. I glue one onto a circle of white cardstock with multi medium matte as it's strong and dries quickly. I then place it into the aperture and glue the stamp on top. It flows really well around. I have a video on spinner cards over on my You Tube channel.

I stamped the sentiment onto some black cardstock with Versa Mark ink and again embossed with the WOW! gold glitter powder. I added some vellum to the back so it wouldn't look so stark against the yellow.


The stencils are available now in the Uniko shop. Have any caught your eye? Thanks for popping by and Happy Crafting!

Your blog posts are like the buses! None for a while and then three turn up! But definitely worth waiting for, this is another fabulous card Ruth! Love the spinner idea, very apt for the sweet lttle bee (the mind boggles as to how you fussy cut that, I would cry and it would be wingless by the time I had finished). The stencil is a perfect addition to the rest of the card as tone on tone adds interest without detracting. Love the card, Lisa xx
