Anyway, onto my last card this week using this set…

2016SOTW25

It was inspired by a new to me colour challenge, one that I came across this morning whilst hopping to each of the Uniko Design Teams blogs HERE as we start the February Release product introductions :)

The challenge is called TGIF Challenge! and they do a mixture of challenges. This week HERE is a colour challenge…

TGIF FEB Challenges-001

For my card I simply used all of the colours and randomly stamping the smaller outline butterfly across the bottom of my card and up towards the righthand top corner. The sentiment is stamped onto a strip of CS and mounted with foam adhesive. I had a little ink boo boo on the card just above the sentiment strip so added a fussy cut butterfly to cover it 😉

I’m a bit late today due to an unforeseen lack of beans napping this afternoon, anyway, back to my SOTW card, 

2016SOTW24

First of all I was inspired by the new challenge and join in with the celebrations over at “Less is More” this week as they celebrate their 5th Birthday! Congrats LIM :)

This week is a colour week, White on White with a splash of black or metallics and it is a FUN sponsored challenge, including Uniko as a sponsor!! Be sure to check out the fun & join in HERE, there are a few more Uniko February peeks over there too 😉

I also used the new Fusion Card Challenge HERE and below as I enjoyed using the sketch so much for yesterdays card.

I kept things really simple, stamping the trio of butterflies in Encore Gold ink. The larger of the butterflies is fussy cut out for a little dimension and I added a strip of gold CS die cut with a Mama Elephant die from the landscape collection.

2016SOTW23

Well, I have no inspiration block this week using this clear stamp set 😉 Being one of my FAVES and a sucker for butterflies, the ideas just keep flowing. Seeing a perfect challenge adds to the fun too! This afternoon I saw the new Fusion Card Challenge HERE and seen below and immediately I knew what I wanted to do.

Picture3

Out came the watercolour card a trio of SU! inks and my watercolour brush. This card was SO simple to make too. I literally stamped the butterflies in the trio of colours and did some quick, rough watercoloring over the image simply using the colour from the stamped image.

2016SOTW23a

I fussy cut them out, added a touch of Wink Of Stella & adhered them to a panel of white CS which I have die cit using the Mama Elephant Landscape dies. This panel is then adhered to my card base using foam adhesive.

Ok, that’s all from me today, I’m tired this evening after a fun filled morning at a soft play & ball pit with the beans this morning and then a clingy bean due to teething this afternoon. His brother is currently serenading him to sleep!

Anyway, still lots to do for the February Release and Birthday celebrations. Be sure to keep an eye out on the blogs and social media for all the fun and GIVEAWAYS!

2016SOTW22

A new challenge started over at CAS Colours & Sketches HERE today and our hostess this month Stef has kicked things off with a FAB cheerful colour combo…

CC&S color159-001

Whilst I was creating my card that I have shared HERE, this idea popped into my head! What do you think? I started by stamping the butterfly in Melon Mambo then colouring with a light pink Copic marker in various places, which I then added a slight touch of Wink Of Stella to.

2016SOTW22a

To stamp the 2 tone background using Pumpkin Pie I stamped the flower trio confetti from Balloon Bash twice before re-inking. I then repeated the process around the butterfly leaving a slight border. The sentiment is ANOTHER peek at one coming in the February Release 😉 Any guesses as to what the set might be about?!

Ok, that’s all from me today, I am not feeling so chirpy today, think I missed my not so little beans this afternoon. Strange how you look forward to some ‘me’ time and then when you get it I feel lost! Anyway, still lots to do for the February Release and Birthday celebrations. Be sure to keep an eye out on the blogs and social media for all the fun and GIVEAWAYS!

Today I have another fabulous & exciting opportunity for one of you. How would YOU like to be a Uniko Guest Stamp Designer? For all the details and to enter check out the post HERE.

Anyway, back to my SOTW card…

2016SOTW20

For my card today I was inspired by a previous card I made using Beautiful Blooms II and Natures Treasures II, seen HERE and below. Having used the swirly leaves on yesterdays card it sparked the idea to CASE myself!

IntroNTII

I kept the colours and the layout basically the same but switched the bloom for the butterfly and rearranged some of the swirls. The sentiment is an early sneak peek from the upcoming February Release 😉

2016SOTW20a

With stamping the butterfly and not colouring it in I decided to add a sprinkling of glitter, perfect for the new challenge this week over at CASology HERE, who’s cue word is glitter.

Week 183 - Glitter

Ok, that’s all from me today, I am still super busy in the Uniko Studio surrounded by a sea of photopolymer! Lots still to do for the February Release and Birthday celebrations. Be sure to keep an eye out on the blogs and social media for all the fun and GIVEAWAYS!

Stamp Of The Week – English Country Garden Butterflies

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… English Country Garden – Butterflies

ECGbutterfliesPP

Apologies for being MIA last week, with all the February Release prep and some ‘home’ emergencies I didn’t get a lot of creative time. However, I have made up for it over the weekend and had a good crafty session creating all sorts of inspiration that I will be sharing here and HERE.

With the 1st February comes the start of my excitement and countdown to the Uniko February Release AND Uniko’s 4th Birthday! I’ve kicked things off over HERE with a post that tells you how Uniko came to be, there is also a fun GIVEAWAY too 😉

Anyway, back to SOTW! With another storm (Henry) headed our way here in the NE of the UK and the high winds already battering outside, my thoughts are still focused on Spring! This time I thought of butterflies :) and as I was perusing Pinterest I came across THIS beauty.

IMG_211707

Even though it this card has a collage of details it still has an air of CAS. I was particularly drawn to the trio of tags which make up the card front and the hint of colour from the base card. So, I had a go and this is what I came up with…

2016SOTW19

The only tag die I have in this shape is a small Papertrey Ink one which is 3.5 x 6.5 cm in size, so three combined it still creates a cute little card. I die cut the three tags and adhered them to an offset of SU! Costal Cabana CS . I then trimmed the shape of the tags at the top and punched holes all the way through.

2016SOTW19aAlong with stamping the large butterfly in SU! Going Gray ink I stamped a couple of swirly leaves from Natures Treasures II. The smaller solid butterfly is stamped on white CS and fussy cut out with the smaller outline butterfly stamped onto vellum and fussy cut out. I added a few SU! heart sequins, bakers twine and Wink Of Stella for a scattering of embellishment.

Ok, that’s all from me today, I am still super busy in the Uniko Studio surrounded by a sea of photopolymer! Lots still to do for the February Release and Birthday celebrations. Be sure to keep an eye out on the blogs and social media for all the fun and GIVEAWAYS!

Have you joined in yet?

Hey!

I’m here today along with our Guest Designers & some of the Design Team to remind you that there is still time to join in on the current Uniko Challenge HERE.

This month we have another super easy challenge for you…

CHRISTMAS

with an optional twist of CAS

I am sure you are all busying away creating for Christmas now that it is less than a month away, so why not join in on the fun. As always there are prizes up for grabs too 😉

This month we have two wonderful Guest Designers, firstly our winner from Challenge #25 Jen from The Other Fickle Pixie and Shona from Twine Around. Be sure to stop on by their blogs to see what they have created & why not have a peek around their blog too, you won’t be disappointed!

Don’t forget to visit the Uniko Design Team too & see what they’ve created, all the links to their blogs can be found HERE on the challenge post.

Onto my card…

UnikoChallenge#27

As you can see I have gone super CAS for this one & one layer too, perfect for mailing out! I used a few other challenges to spark my creativity. First up is the current 2 week challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below. I’ve had so many ideas whirling around for this sketch but with being ill I hadn’t found time to join in.

CTS_150

I was also inspired by the new Fusion Card Challenge HERE and seen below, I used the colours from the inspiration photo. Such lovely turquoise/blue tones with sparkly silver & white.

Sketch09

As you can see from this close up below, I have used 2 snowflakes from Stunning Snowflakes & heat embossed one the sentiments from the set with Stardust EP for the sparkle! I was going to say I used one of my favourite sentiments from the set, but I actually LOVE them all! Haha!

UnikoChallenge#27a

I actually chose this particular sentiment due to the new challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges HERE. This fortnight it is an inspired by words challenge & the words are…

SNOWFLAKES ARE WINTER’S BUTTERFLIES

So, I thought I would join in over there too! Ok, I have one last little bit of info for you before I go & that is…

Clear Stamps

Uniko Challenge #22

Hey!

Today over HERE on the Uniko Blogger Blog we have a new challenge starting :) 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.

Normally I would have challenged myself to make a masculine card, but it just wasn’t happening. The idea I had in my head just wouldn’t translate onto my card! So I ended up making this instead…

UC#22

I was firstly inspired by the new challenge over a Fusion Card Challenge HERE and opted to use both the inspiration photo and the sketch seen below.

Bright Butterfly

When I see butterflies I can resist joining in and using the large butterfly from English Country Garden – Butterflies. I paired the butterfly with the solid bloom from Beautiful Blooms II which I masked and stamped in Angel Pink, Rose Bud and Mango Madness.

UC#22a

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.
