Uniko - Challenge #57

Hi there, I'm back with a little reminder about our current challenge over at Uniko where it's an 'Anything Goes' theme with the option to use COOL WINTER COLOURS.

Here's our Cue Card which we'd love to see you include in your post and you could use the image as a guide to your colour scheme.

I went more towards those blue tones using Zig clear brush pens and water to create my background followed by some embossed images and sentiments from the Reach for the Stars stamp set by Uniko.

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 the wonderfully talented Trina of Phamtastic Design who is one of our previous Uniko Challenge winners. Do pop along and visit her blog and leave a friendly word and some love.

You have until midnight (GMT) on Friday 21st February 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 Release IN REVIEW - Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY

Hi there and thanks for visiting me again today!
The January release at Uniko was a little different to normal in that the Design Team only had one stamp set each to work with BUT all that has changed and we are now able to REVIEW the whole bundle!!!! 

Here's a couple of examples I've made to showcase the sets and I hope you like them. The release has already been on sale for a week or so and it's a great bundle for those Valentines, Anniversaries and Weddings in particular!

First up ... A trio of cards using a combination of the new sets: Background Block: Scattered Hearts, alongside the BIG & BOLD Love set with a sentiment, on the last one, from 'YOU ARE ... Sentiments Outlined'  

... Not exactly your traditional Valentine colours but I can't resist rainbow colours!

Still not those traditional Valentine colours but slightly less 'BOLD' than the first one!!

... and just because I rather liked this colour combo!

Next up using the Hello Lovely stamp and sentiments! What a delightful bouquet of blooms and it's great coloured or simply stamp the outline as I've done on the next card. This one is a bit of both with a 'popped up' coloured section, using Polychromos and a strip of patterned paper and self-adhesive pearls to accessorise.

Last one for today ... another example using sentiments from BIG & BOLD - LOVE; this time teamed with the Hello Lovely bouquet. I stamped the bouquet twice at both ends of the panel then coloured some cardstock with Promarkers to create my sentiment panel, with matching strips down the side. 

Although this review is a little later than the original release date, there's still the traditional BIG Reveal, Release and Blog Hop GIVEAWAY to look forward too!

So here's the list you need and all the details including prizes, are over on the Uniko blog HERE 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!

Uniko Release Day - January 2020

Hi there and thanks for visiting me today!

It's a bit of a different release this month as it's come around so quickly since Christmas and the team haven't received the new goodies so didn't take part in the usual introductions BUT if you've been following the Uniko blog HERE you'll have seen Bev has been working her little socks off with some fantastic ideas using the new stamp sets.

SO for today it's just straight into the BIG Reveal, Release and GIVEAWAY of this month's new stamp sets from Uniko including the RE-RELEASE of Always and Forever, which I've used here for 2 new examples ... using this set:

For the first one it's straight stamping using Altenew Inks with a sentiment duo from BIG & BOLD Hugs and a strip of striped washi tape down the right-hand border. there's also some glamour dust to the flowers but sadly, not really evident in the photo.

This one includes a dry-embossed background panel with the Uniko stamps, on the front panel mounted on 3d foam. The images were inked in Versamark ink before heat-embossing with white embossing powder then blended using distress inks with a few splatters of Perfect Pearls and water to finish.

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