Uniko Challenge #54

Hi there, I'm here with our latest challenge over at Uniko and here's the cue card to explain what's required



I'm sure the most difficult decision for this challenge will be which set / sets to use  as there's so many beautiful options out there! 

Here's my card using an older and previous 'Freebie' set called So Much and although I haven't used any Uniko dies I have included a Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die along with a stitched rectangle die. The images from the set are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black before colouring with Promarkers.



You have until Friday, 23rd August at Midnight BST to link up to the challenge and all the details you need about prizes and how to play can be found over at Uniko HERE

As always thanks for calling by my blog today and I hope you feel inspired and will play along with us!

Uniko Revisit - June 2019

Hi there friends, it's another REVIST month over at Uniko where Bev asks us to 'dig out', dust down and bring a previously released set back into the spotlight! 

This month it's the turn of Explosion, Explosion Additions and their coordinating dies and as we are close to Father's Day I decided to combine this occasion with my first card:


A very 'busy' background of the images and sentiments here from both sets - quick and easy to do with the 'Happy Father's Day' explosion die popped up on an Art Impressions Action Wobbler for a bit of added fun.


A little more 'white' space on this one with a die-cut explosion adhered to the card front as well as a 'sunken' WOW die for extra interest. The 'You Rock' sentiment is from the Simply Said Blocks range also by Uniko.

As is the tradition there's a blog hop giveaway; the prize being an e-gift voucher for £25 and you have until Midnight (BST) to join the hop and comment on the blogs to be in with a chance of winning the prize.

You'll find all the details over at Uniko HERE and here's the list of blogs you need to visit on the hop! I wish you lots of luck!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you feel inspired to create with these sets again having checked out all the fabulous creations from my fellow teamies.

Uniko - Bev's 40th Birthday Blog Hop

Hi friends, can you believe that Bev, super talented and simply awesome owner of Uniko is celebrating a BIG birthday today! 40 years young! 


The Uniko DT are sharing a sneaky surprise birthday blog hop in honour of Bev's birthday today so why not head on over to the blog HERE for more details. You can also join in by creating a birthday card for Bev and link it up to the post. We hope she'll love the fact that we've taken over the blog!!!

Here's my card and I just couldn't resist going with my 'go to' rainbow blended look using the Uniko Stylised Floral Stencil along with some birthday sentiments from the Simply Said Blocks range. I recently purchased the Bold Numeral dies by Altenew, die-cutting the stencilled panel with 40 before popping them up on 4 layers of black cardstock. A few enamel dots to finish the look!


Many congratulations on your special birthday Bev and hope it's FAB-u-lous,
 bursting with fun and surprises!


It's also my sister and brother-in-laws' wedding anniversary today so using slightly 'cooler' rainbow tones on this one with a die-cut heart from WPlus9, circular 'Happy' sentiment by Neat and Tangled plus die-cut 'popped-up' Anniversary sentiment from Clearly Besotted.



As always thanks for calling by my blog today

Uniko - Reveal, Release and Blog Hop Giveaway May 2019

Hi there and thanks for visiting me again today!

So you've had the Sneaky Peeks and Introductions and now we have the BIG Reveal, Release and GIVEAWAY of this month's new goodies from Uniko.

Here's my cards showcasing these fabulous sets and they will be available in the shop HERE and waiting for you to buy!

The first 2 feature the Mid Century Modern Florals set teamed with the BIG & BOLD Wish stamp set and the coordinating word die on the first one.





This one uses just the Mid Century Modern Florals and I have to admit that as soon as I saw the set I thought of the Orla Kiely homeware designs so this card features my take on that theme with a sentiment from the Simply Said Blocks 



And some butterfly mania below with the first one also including the Large Background Sketched Foliage set. There's lots of shimmer pen used on these 3 below but it's not obvious in the photos but I can assure you there's plenty of glittery shine in real life! The sentiments for these are from the previously released Wonderful Day stamp set. 




All that's left for me to do is set you off on the traditional Design Team Blog Hop and wish you luck. All the details are over on the Uniko blog HERE so if you get lost along the way just head back there.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like what you've seen these last few days and here's the FULL images of the sets we've been showcasing!
