Uniko Studio Introducing Home Sweet Home

Thursday, July 9, 2015

Hello there! Today I'm sharing with you my card using Uniko's new stamp set called "Home Sweet Home". Beginning July 11th, 2015, you will be able to purchase this set HERE along with the other new sets being released this month!!

In case you missed it a couple days ago, here is the Sneak Peek photo of the stamp set.

I used a watercolor technique on this card, but I'm not too thrilled with how it came out. First, I heat embossed the house using black embossing powder. Then, using the Tim Holtz Distress Markers, I colored in each section of the house using different colors. I even added a bit of color outside the house to make it look like grass, but it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. Anyway, after coloring, I sprayed it with water and then let it dry. The panel was die-cut with MFT Stitched Rectangles die, and adhered to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to visit all the design team members and Beverley's blog to see more awesome creations using this fun set! COME BACK TOMORROW FOR MORE!!

  1. And my first thought was how great the house looks with watercolouring. I love all the little splodges and the combo of colours!

  2. Love the color in your card! Just beautiful!

  3. I don't mind the watercolour look. Lovely card.

  4. I like the watercolour look you have created, the randomness adds a vintage feel to it in a CAS way. Beautifully showcased. Hugs Bev x

  5. How funny... it's the watercolour effect that drew me to this card first! Yes the grass that you don't like!
    Overall I think the stamps, colouring and matting works very well, no change required.

  6. I think your water-coloured house is incredibly pretty, Nikki! The pink door...love it!

  7. I like your watercolour style Nicki and think the 'weathered' look is a brilliant effect.
    Great showcase card.

  8. Beautiful card Nicki. Love this new house stamp.
