Addicted To CAS Embossing

We're back to creating at Addicted to CAS and the theme this week is embossing! Boy did I have fun with this one!

We have an awesome sponsor again for this challenge. Please let me introduce you to


Uniko Studio is a small company based in the North East of the UK. Uniko Studio specialises in surface pattern design & clear stamps for the hobby market. Uniko Studio will feature high quality photopolymer stamps designed & manufactured here in the UK, and if things go well we will branch out into other crafting supplies.

Since starting & graduating from Cleveland College of Art & Design, with a first class honours (BA) degree in Textiles & Surface Pattern Design I knew that my new path in life would be a creative one. Since a young girl I have been creative & I have enjoyed the hobby of making cards for as long as I can remember! During the final stages of my degree I focused my projects on designing clear stamps for the hobby market with a clear focus of starting the company once I graduated.

So here I am.. Uniko Studio! I hope you will join me on this adventure & enjoy the NEW stamp designs from Uniko Studio.

On to my card!  lol
Would you look at that!  Another lovey dovey card!  That's at least 4 in a row that I've made. Guess we all know what's been on MY mind! lol  I used dry embossing and heat embossing on this. It was so simple but so much fun.  The hearts and the sentiment are embossed with Black Embossing Powder and the background is embossed with the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder from the new Spring Catalog. By all of the samples I have seen popping up on the internet with this one, it sure seems to be popular!  Now the next thing we need is a little hexagon punch to coordinate with it. ;) Hint, hint Stampin' Up!
