Have YOU joined in yet?


I’m popping by today to remind you that there is still time to join in on the current Uniko Challenge HERE.

This fortnight it is a REALLY easy one for you, but with an optional twist to challenge yourself that little further if you wish.

Anything Goes with an optional twist of a Masculine Card

You can use any stamps you own to create your card/project, but I do love to see you use your Uniko goodies and there are prizes of course, listed at the end of my post along with other details.

I had my Background Builders: Chevrons out on the desk from my last card & post HERE, which was for the current TIME OUT Challenges challenge. It’s a perfect set for making a masculine card, as are all geometrics. So, with the help of a couple of other challenges I created this card…


I started out by using the new CAS – Colours and Sketches layout seen HERE and below for the layout of my card. I then sought the help of the current colours over at ColourQ seen HERE and below.

sketch 130


I don’t often reach for a coloured card base, but as I don’t have Soft Sky in an ink pad I decided to use that colour as the base. I also felt that the other 3 colours went well stamped together in a trio of chevrons. I have a thing for slicing through my panels at the moment, it’s a current trend within paper crafting at the moment.

Doing this to my stamped panel also coincides with the sketch where the ribbon would be. I added a small amount of glitter and a sentiment from Simply Said Birthday to finish the panel off.


This fortnight we also have some lovely talented Guest Designers joining us 🙂 Anita from My Papercraft World and Melissa from HoneyBeeLane.

For all the info, link up and more inspiration from the team, be sure to pop on over HERE to the Uniko Blog. Email entries are welcome if you do not have a blog or online gallery. Just send me a photo of your card/project to beverley@unikostudio.com

Need a little more to get that mojo flowing?! How about some prizes…

The DT will choose a winner who will get a £10 gift voucher

The DT will also choose a top 3 who will get 50 Loyalty Reward Points added to their customer account.

We will do a random draw for those who used a Uniko stamp and this winner will get 150 Loyalty Reward Points added to their customer account.

We will do a random draw for those who twist with us (masculine card) and they will receive 100 Loyalty Reward Points added to their customer account.

This challenge runs for 2 weeks, closing on July 3rd 8am BST.

That’s all from me today, thank you for sopping by & be sure to link up your entry HERE.

    I’m was so excited to see your card pop up in the CC&S gallery. Love that you’ve left a gap where the ribbon is on the sketch and the colours and sparkle are fabulous. Thanks for joining in at CC&S.

    So pleased to have you joining in with our sketch at CC&S this week Bev. Great idea to split the image in place of the ribbon. Thanks. Stef x

    Super job combining the challenges! The way you’ve split the focal panel adds a cool modern touch to the sketch. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CC&S! 🙂
