Holiday Crafting


I hope you had a wonderful Christmas - did Santa bring you any crafty goodies?!  We have just finished our family visiting and entertaining so I have had the opportunity to play in my craft room for a few hours today and am looking forward to lots more craft time over the next few days.

I really like Anita's sketch at Less is More so decided to play along with some of the fab new stamps from Uniko's pre Christmas release....

I used my Indian Flower stencil (which you can get from my Folksy shop) and inked through with some oxides.  I then stamped the fabulous large sentiment from Uniko's Big and Bold Hugs.
Here is the sketch:

On this card I stamped and masked the glorious roses from Uniko's Pure Florals - they come in both solid and outline designs.  I added a leaf stencil for a bit of greenery and the same sentiment from Big and Bold Hugs.  I shall link this card up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes this week.
I hope to have more creations to share with you later this week.  In the meantime, have a lovely time over the festive season.....
Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Two fab makes in lovely almost summery colours, such a welcome change when we've had SNOW today!

    Happy New Year


  2. Two beautiful makes using the same sketch, Sarah. The colours and ink blending through the stencil are so pretty on your first card. The blooms on your second card were beautifully stamped. They are the perfect choice for this sketch. Hope your Christmas holiday was wonderful. Happy new year and thank you for coming back to play along with us at Lessis More. xx

  3. Great cards! I love the Indian flower stencil just beautiful.

  4. What a fabulous take on our challenge Sarah ! Love both of them and in particular your gorgeous stencil ! Also a stunning way to use the last Uniko release ! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Less is More ! I also take this opportunity to wish you a very happy new year! Hugs xx

  5. Both cards are gorgeous. I love them. Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year with family and friends. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge. Gayatri xx

  6. Two wonderful cards for us at LIM, Sarah! I love your stencil work in your first card -I love the blend of colors and the bold black sentiment really pops. Great stamping and color choices in your second card too! Happy New Year and thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

  7. Sorry I'm so late visiting this one, Sarah! Well, this sketch certainly suited your style. Two fabulous bold designs which both work so well with the bold hugs. No new crafty goodies for me this year, will just have to use some of my own NBUS won't I!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
