Uniko Revisit - January 2018

Hi there friends, here's my first Uniko post of 2018 and it's one of Bev's 'REVISIT' months where she asks us to 'dig out', dust down and bring a previously released set back into the spotlight! 

There's a bit of a twist for this month, however, as Bev asked the DT to pick their own favourite set, released during 2017. Now that's a BIG ask and quite unfair due to the sheer number of beauties Uniko has released. In fact it took me a while to decide which to go for. In the end I chose the Organics range of stamps ... not realising that the first one was released in 2016! Ooops!

I'm still going to feature that card anyway as I've a little trio going on! My Mum asked me to make a bunch of Anniversary cards and she prefers the square design, which I find quite tricky to make. Have you noticed most stamps and dies are geared towards rectangles? Before Christmas I discovered some cheap, large stitched square dies from The Works, which made the design a breeze! (Thanks to Di, friend of JulesB - who found these initially and shared them at the HLS craft retreat in November)

Onto my cards
using: Originally Organics Additions, sentiments from Simply Said and Happy Succulents
(images coloured using Promarkers plus Altenew Inks)

Having used a sentiment from the Happy Succulents set on the previous card I realised the images combine quite well with the organics range so here's my take with this one

using: Happy Succulents image and sentiments from Simply Said and Festive Sentiments
(images coloured with Promarkers plus Altenew Inks)

... and here's the DUD! The Originally Organics set was released in October 2016 but I've still used the Happy Succulent 'Happy' sentiment and the 'Anniversary' from Simply Said with the same Promarker colours.

  1. Love your squared up cards Sarah and you're right most stamps seem to fit rectangles and I always have problems with using circle and square dies. Beautiful colour pairing, looks amazing.

  7. I'm completely captivated by your trio featuring the organics series, Sarah! The square shape really does add to the impact of the images (although I'm with you: square cards are a challenge!). Your mom - and those receiving these works of art - is sure to love them, as do I! You are such a source of inspiration...

  14. What a stunning trio Sarah and I am glad you showed the Originally Organic card as your trio really highlights how these stamps are designed as a collection and that they can be mixed and matched. The designs look so elegant stamped in silver and as always your colour choices are beautiful.
    Overall I am in awe of your talent and so blessed and grateful to have you on my team showcasing Uniko. Hugs Bev x
