Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!

Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Uniko Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!

Hey!

I am so glad you have stopped by today as today we have a Uniko Design Team Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop (To start at the beginning of the blog hop CLICK HERE). I decided to put on this extra Design Team blog hop as not all the team received their November Release goodies in time for the release day blog hop HERE.

So, we are all here today with more inspiration using the Uniko November 2015 Release products, which are still in stock but a couple of the sets I only have a small amount of stock left ūüėČ

Here are some more cards I made using the new clear stamps…

C2CBH3

First up I have another card using Essentially Christmas. This time I wanted to focus on the little present/gift box in the set and a couple of the smaller accent elements.

C2CBH3a

As you can see I 2 step stamped the gift in VersaMagic Red Magic & Encore gold inks. The gift is topped with the bow from Jingle Bells as I wanted a more ‘poofey’ bow!

C2CBH2

My next card has been on my ‘to make’ list since I first got my hands on the November Release! Finally I found the inspiration to make it ūüėČ

Again, I was inspired by the colours & photo inspiration from the current Fusion Card Challenge HERE and seen below. I just love the colours, they’re one of my favourite Christmas go to combos.

I just so happened to have the ‘perfect’ shaker card mix of sequins that I bought months ago from ‘Little Things from Lucy’s Cards’. For my card I have combined the bow & fern from Jingle Bells with the Let it Snow & bauble hanger from Labelled Christmas.

I have one last card to share with you today using I LOVE Coffee

C2CBH1

This card was inspired by the current CAS Colours & Sketches¬†challenge seen HERE and below. As you can see it is a sketch challenge. I have been lucky enough to be Guest Designing for CC&S for the month of November & you can see my GD card HERE. Which I really liked, but as you can see I ‘bent’ the rules quite a bit & I didn’t stick to the half circle elements in the sketch (Sorry CC&S).

So this time I did! It turned out to be the perfect sketch to show you the size difference between the Uniko logo flower contained in the I LOVE Coffee set compared to the same flower contained in the previously released Flower Power #3 set.

C2CBH1a

Another thing I discovered was how the larger outline flower from Flower Power #3 can be ‘joined’ together when stamped to hang over an edge :) I think it helps join the two semi circles and the design to flow. After I had done my focal elements I wanted a sentiment but couldn’t find a suitable placement over the semi circles, so I decided to stamp the sentiment ‘Coffee & Friends make the perfect blend’ on my white CS panel in VersaMark Dazzle Champagne ink.

Ok, that is FINALLY all from me today! Remember, simply visit & comment along the hop by midnight Saturday 5th December, to be in the chance of winning  the ENTRIE release! The WINNER will be announced Sunday 6th December.

All the new products showcased today are available HERE on the website.

We also have a Black Friday weekend SALE on AND we have some products RETIRING which are at a discounted price until all stock of the retiring items are sold.

THANK YOU so much for stopping by today & joining in on all the fun. I hope that you all have a wonderful festive season.

    Such a wonderfully inspiring selection of cards Bev. and I’m thinking that CC&S card follows the sketch pretty well. Thanks for playing.

    There’s lots of crafty goodness here! The CC&S sketch card is what brought me here. The sparkly arcs make a gorgeous frame for the floral images, and I really like that they are arcs and not nested circles – it’s a neat little detail! Thanks so much for playing along in the challenge this week!
    The shaker ornament card is full of lovely festive fun, too!

    What super cards, Bev! I really like them all, but I especially like the little details on the one for the sketch challenge, the way the flowers join, the sparkly bits and the soft colours…gorgeous. Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge at CC&S
