Next up a little Christmas variety using some other stamps from our super sponsor Uniko, these are Winter Foliage, Jingle Bells and Festive Sentiments. The pine-cone and poinsettia are both layered stamps and again I've used Altenew inks for stamping.

Hi there, where did that week go? I seriously need some time to jump off this treadmill ... so I've gone off piste and 'out of this world' today for this week's theme challenge from Less is More and here's the cue card
It's almost Halloween so feel free to combine it with something of a spooky nature but here's my example and just the one this week but I'm sure my fellow teamies will have plenty more offerings of inspiration over on the main blog HERE
I hope you'll join in the fun with this one and don't forget if you want to be in with a chance of a prize from this month's sponsor Uniko you need to play and we'll announce our winner at the start of next month!
Thanks for calling by today and have a good weekend!

The same set featured below but highlighted areas coloured simply with Promarkers
Next up, featuring the Wonky Stripes Background Block, Festive Sentiments as well as the Block Party Christmas - but just Santa. Again simply coloured with Promarkers and a postage friendly bundle for the holiday season.
All that's left for me to do is set you off on the traditional Design Team Blog Hop and wish you luck. The details you need are over on the Uniko blog HERE so if you get lost along the way just head back there.
Sarah - that's me!

First up dreamy and feminine using Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick before heat embossing the images with WOW rich gold powder.
Followed up with red hot and spicy in true Autumn tones. The Distress inks used here are Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon and Candied Apple before double-inking the images and sentiments with Memento Tuxedo black once the distress inks had dried.

Once again using images by this month's sponsor Uniko and delighted that Bev is joining us again this month as the Guest Designer. The 'stamped' panel is from the Background Block: Stars, released last month with the 'Happy' sentiment one of the new sets being released on Monday. The 'birthday' from Simply Said Birthday.
Next up a really simple Christmas card using one of the sets, again from last month's Uniko release: Background Builders: Seeing Stars and sneaking in a little sentiment from the Festive Sentiments, soon to be released, later this week!
There's a couple of challenges I've decided to link this one up in; first up Addicted to Stamps and More with their 'Holiday' theme and Inkspirational is looking for a ONE layer card so hey-ho ... it would be rude not to!

Next up ... who says snowflakes have to be white!!!! or blue even! Perhaps this is a little OTT though but I can't resist using non-traditional colours for Christmas and teamed with the Merry & Bright sentiment I think these Ziggy coloured snowflakes work brilliantly. I used a snowdrift die from MFT to separate the two sections of the card and used a Promarker in a deep blue to define the edge. The sentiment is inked with black then heat embossed with sparkling clear EP but sadly the sparkle doesn't show on the photo.
As always there's plenty of fantastic creations by my fellow teamies, so why not head over to the Uniko blog HERE to check out the links and pay them a visit! I'm sure they'd appreciate it!
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Viyaylaxmi of All By Heart Creations who is one of our previous Uniko Challenge winners. Do pop along and visit her blog and leave a friendly word and some love, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
You have until midnight on Friday, 27th October 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!

Same but different. Having lined all the sentiments I wanted to use in the Misti I thought I'd better make more than one card! In fact I daren't take these out of my Misti until I'm satisfied I've stamped enough as it's a really quick and easy one to mass produce for Christmas. The Holly leaves and berries are from the Winter Additions Background Builders set, which is an older stamp but any little image would work here.

For this second one I wanted to showcase how pretty the stamp is 'standalone' without extra colour or fuss. It really is beautiful embossed in white onto kraft or any coloured cardstock but the options are limitless.
