Today we are focusing on an essential stamp set that Bev has put together for the Uniko February release which goes live on 11 February. Simply Said is a fab collection of sentiments in a plain font which can be used for a range of occasions and styles.
As February is the month of romance I have made two valentine style cards featuring the sentiments. Uniko is sponsoring CASology this week and this first card is for this week's challenge:
I have stamped words from the sentiment set in soft grey ink through a heart aperture and added a touch of ink around the edges to give definition to the shape. The red always is from a previous Uniko set - All Occasion Sentiments #5. I will also link up at this week's Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Have a Heart and at AAA Cards which has another romantic theme - Love Me Like You Do.
I stamped the sentiments in a similar format to create a panel on this second card. The little heart is from the forthcoming Some Bunny set and the red heart from I Love Tea. The sentiment in red is also from All Occasion Sentiments #5.
I have used these sentiments on other cards over the past few days and think they will be a go to set! Here they are:
The rest of the DT have other fab creations to share with you featuring these sentiments over at the Uniko blog where you will also find details of the giveaways that Bev has generously provided for the release and Uniko's 4th birthday. Drop by tomorrow for some more Uniko goodness!
