Uniko - Just Because and Lg French Script Background ....

.... Morning! Welcome back to my blog. Today I'm introducing two more new stamps sets from Uniko. One is a large background script - which I think will be very useful, and the second is a smaller set featuring a lovely floral silhouette and lots of words that can be put together to make many phrases. Here's my card:

Just Because - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko - Just Because, Large French Script Background
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Gina K - Black Onyx, Innocent Pink, Dusty Rose
Dies: Memory Box - Cross Stitch Frames #1 and #2
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Shimmer Spritz - Frost; Clear Embossing Powder; Perfect Pearls - Forever Red, Interference Red; Black Marker


I got the inspiration for this card from the photo over at Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#290. I stamped the large script background in Versamark directly on to the card. Then I added a couple of colours of Perfect Pearls and brushed them and gradually the image was revealed. I used a Swiffer pad to dust off as much excess powder as I could. There is still a slight haze of colour, but I like that. I stamped the floral silhouette and word 'because' in Versafine and heat embossed them with clear powder.  I stamped the silhouette image again on scrap white card, heat embossed it, and then very carefully cut it out with a scalpel. I covered all the white edges with a black marker pen. I spritzed a panel of white card with frost Shimmer Spritz, dried it and then cut out two faux stitched frames. I added the larger frame flat to the card and used dimensional pads to add the smaller frame. I glued the bottom of the fussy cut floral silhouette flat to the card and used dimensional pads on the top flower. On the inside, I simply stamped the floral image in shades of pink and added some more words to complete the phrase. I also added a few dots using a black marker.


This card is for my Mum - just because!! It's already in the post and she should get it by the end of next week. It's great timing, as here in the States, next Sunday is Mother's Day.

OMG! I can't believe you fuzzy cut the silhouette with a craft knife. It looked that way in the image and had to read how you'd made this card just to check. It's definitely got the wow-factor Deborah and so pretty. I'm sure you mum will love it.
