A twofer with hearts

Hey all, I am up with a twofer using hearts today.
I have used the winnie&walter products for these cards,

 Adding these to the Twofer Card Challenge
 

I used winnie&walter " In Bloom :Addie's garden" stamps and stamped the flowers and leaves in random on a water color paper. I then used the Gansai Tambi  starry pearl water colors and watercolored the leaves using 2 different shades of gold.
I then used the markers to color the flowers.
I decided to add some small words from the Big and the Bold set, to fill in the whites, and I personally think it adds interest to the design,
Once satisfied with the front, I used the multifaceted heart cutaway and diecut the heart.
I stamped the sentiment love on the base card, and added the diecut frame over it. I stamped the "you" on a tiny pink strip and added using a foam adhesive.

The second card is made using the scraps from the first card. I had a strip of card left, so I simply cut it in half to get 2 strips for this card.
I used a black multifaceted heart frame to inlay all the left over pieces from the previous card.
I decided to make this a mother's day card.

Uniko's 6th Birthday - Treasure hunt blog hop

Hey all, today we are celebrating Uniko's 6th birthday with a treasure hunt and a blog hop.

Over 6 years Uniko has produced 104 (not including 2018s) clear stamp sets.
Today the Design Team and a couple of 'special guests' have created a FUN clear stamp set treasure hunt blog hop for you to join in on. 
The aim of the treasure hunt is for you not only to be inspired by each of projects the DT and our guests are sharing, but also to find a NAME of a clear stamp set from each of the 6 years Uniko has been going, from 2012 - 2017. 
Each person along the hop will have created a project using a clear stamp set from the year they were allocated. They will also mention the year that the clear stamp set was released somewhere in their blog post. 
There are 11 amazing and inspirational designers in the hop and one Design Team Member has created 2 projects using 2 clear stamp sets from the six years. So there are 2 clear stamp sets from each of the 6 years to be found. Easy peasy!
Jot these answers down in an email like this for example: 
2012 Pure Florals: Poinsettia / Pure Florals: Gerbera
2013 Background Builders: Round In Circles
2014 Explosion!
2014 Balloon Bash
2016 Originally Organic
2017 Reach For The Stars
Then email your answers to bev@uniko.co.uk by 9am GMT Sunday 18th February 2018. You will then be entered into a prize draw.
The Prizes!
  THREE winners will be randomly selected from all the correct entries that name 6 clear stamp sets from each year (2012-2017), to receive an in stock clear stamp set of their choosing.
  ONE lucky winner to receive a £60 eGift Certificate to spend in the Uniko store to those who name and email all 12 clear stamp sets from each of the 6 years! 

Happy Hopping & Hunting!

------------------------------

For the first card you have to find out the flowers, these were released in the year 2015, you will need to hunt for the name of the flower stamp.

I used SU and versamark inks to stamp the images.
The sentiment added and edged with a glitter strip, and a few jewels to finish off.

------------------------------------------

I have another hunt for you guys, this set is also from the year 2015, you will need to find the name of the sentiment stamp used here.
I did lots of masking for the dress and sponged the worn lipstick on the base of the dress, ans then used candied apple for the stencil to add design on the dress, and i decided to stencil a few hearts around the card.
I doodled the hanger and the rest of the parts on the dress.

Repetitive stamping

Hey all, I am up with another card using the winnie&walter products.

I have used the repeat stamping with the wood grain stamp from them on the kraft front, the base is a shimmery wood-grain brown color card stock.
I used DI to stamp all the 4 panels on the front by moving the stamp sideways twice.
Once I was hap[y with the stamping, I used the happy cutaway and die cut the word, and arranged the negative bits to finish off the main focal sentiment. I stamped and heat e,boss gold EP on the base colored strip for the rest of the sentiment, and added it using a foam adhesive.
I added 4 gold sequins to finish off.

Grid - Happy Birthday

Happy Friday everyone! Weekend is here and I am up with a card which I made yesterday evening. Yesterday was a crafty day with plenty of sunshine in the craftroom. We are back to overcast skies starting today and no sun in forecast for 2 days at least.
Anyways, I  thought of playing along winnie&walter birthday celebration challenges, and I am leaving for holiday next week and will be back a few days before the challenges end, so trying to get in a few cards done here.

Today's card is a CASE or comeback challenge by Taheerah. The main idea is drawn from there and I had just worked it around to combine  few other challenges.

The card I chose is Shay's, you cans see the post dated : Thursday, July 24, 2014 here,
I was looking on Pinterest to find some inspiration from the talent at winnie&walter, Seriously it wasn't easy , there are so many beautiful cards, but I keep coming back to this card.

I used the colors and the Chevrons and the layout as my inspiration here, but gave my spin to it.
I chose a grid PP from Doodlebug, its pale blue. I decided to get only 2 chevrons here as I planned to add the huge diamond to the front, and lined it up att he first chevron.
I used DI hickory smoke to sponge the chevron, after some masking.
I used a white and a yellow glitter card to die cut the diamond.
Used the happy die cut in black and the birthday is stamped on the grid PP strip, I added 4 each of the sequins and black jewels.

Heart shaker - winnie&walter

Hello all, I am up with a card using winnie&walter products.

I have used all white here. I used SU Pink Pirouette ink, and masked ans sponged 4 stripes on the dront panel.
Then used the True multifaceted heart cutaway to cut the heart.
I used the same ink on the faceted heart to sponge it pink.
I added a Holographic foil to the base card, and used ivory heart sequins for the shaker, both these are from CrafTangles.
The sentiment is from The big, the bold from winnie&walter. I added 4 jewels to finish off the card.
I am loving the softness of this card.
I will post a video of the shaker on my Instagram @rahmat.ccc you can see how the holographic foil illuminates! Its lovely to look at.
