Introducing… Fun Flowers

Hey!

I’m super happy you have stopped by today, as today the Design Team and I are introducing the second of the mini April Release clear stamp sets.

Hopefully you have hopped here from the Uniko Blogspot blog HERE. If not be sure to pop on over to see more from myself and the Design Team using Fun Flowers.

Lets have a look at my card…

Class1

Yep, I’m still on that shaker card making roll! This time I couldn’t resist adding some stamped, coloured and punched out tiny daisies to my shaker mix!

Class1a

 

The flower on the edge of the shaker frame is a layered flower. I stamped the medium daisy, coloured and fussy cut it out. The top most flower is the tiny daisy stamped and then the small scalloped flower stamped, fussy cut and coloured. I layered the flowers together using DST.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a photo of different combinations of how the stamps in this set can be stamped!

That’s all from me just now showcasing this set, I will be back later today with my Stamp Of The Week card using I LOVE Coffee. Until then, be sure to stop by HERE for more inspiration using this set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamp Of The Week – Pure Florals: Cosmos

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… Pure Florals: Cosmos

PFCosmosPP

This is the set the Design Team and I have revisited this month with a blog hop & giveaway HERE, so with it already out and getting some inky love and attention I thought I would give it some more this week.

This is my last card this week using the set, I seem to have lost a couple of days since the restocks arrived and I have been busy preparing the mini April Release too 😉 Anyway, how about my card…

2016SOTW44

I decided to play along with a couple of challenges for this card. First up the TIME OUT Challenges one HERE, which is to CASE (with your own twist) this beautiful card by Marjan seen below…

DCL#230-1

I especially like the die cut window Marjan created, but I decided to add my own twist and reverse the window, adding foam adhesive to the die cut square instead of the larger stamped panel.

2016SOTW44aAlong with the die cut detail I was inspired by the trio of colours Marjan used too and replicated those on my card. I added some polka dots too, which is perfect for this weeks “Less Is More” challenge HERE.

Ok, that’s all from me tonight, I’m going to spend a little time with the hubby tonight, we are currently watching the second season of Daredevil and loving it!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter Sunday and thanks for stopping by today, see you tomorrow with a new Stamp Of The Week and don’t forget that this set is discounted in store HERE only until tomorrow!

The second challenge was for colours and I LOVE the colours they have chosen at the Color Throwdown HERE and seen below this week, Teal, Aqua and Gold – YUM!

2016SOTW43a

I decided to Gold heat emboss the Cosmos flowers on my trio of squares and after I added the aqua colour to the petals using a Copic marker, quick and simple flat colouring.

I seem to be having many a day where everything I want to do either takes me twice as long as originally planned or turns out to be a waste of time!

2016SOTW42

My card today took me forever to make, the fussy cutting which I normally enjoy seemed to take me forever to do and then I needed some designer paper which I rarely use and had to search high and low for some that suited my card and inspiration photo I was following!

I was inspired by a new to me challenge called Inspired by All the Little Things seen HERE and below. Isn’t that photo inspiring and pretty.

As you can see I kept my card pretty CAS and flat, adhering the flowers and leaves with DST. I added a sentiment from Simply Said and some Wink Of Stella to the flowers for some subtle sparkle.

2016SOTW42a

That’s all I have today, struggling with the creativity tonight :( Anyway, there is still time to join in and comment along the hop HERE to be in the chance of winning the featured clear stamp set. Plus there is also the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop in progress and details and giveaway info HERE.

Ok, that’s all from me today, a little more rest needed to recover and get back up to 100%. Thanks for stopping by today, see you tomorrow and don’t forget that this set is discounted in store HERE this week too!

Todays card is another that was made for and during the class the other Saturday at The Paperlane. The design was inspired and a CASE of THIS card by Sarah G on the hop, isn’t Sarah’s card AMAZING?

HappyBirthdayCosmos

Amazingly I watercolored the flowers, which was quite refreshing and therapeutic, fussy cutting them out was too 😉 I also added a little splash of Wink Of Stella to make them sparkle and shine a little.

2016SOTW41a

Hopefully I will get back into the studio this week creating, I have been hit by yet another virus and was totally out of action again from Wednesday last week. I am feeling better but still full of cold, at least I can stand up without being dizzy!

Anyway, there is still time to join in and comment along the hop HERE to be in the chance of winning the featured clear stamp set. Plus there is also the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop in progress and details and giveaway info HERE.

Ok, that’s all from me today, a little more rest needed to recover and get back up to 100%, hopefully with all the playgroups stopping for Easter I will get my immune system back to normal too 😉

Uniko Challenge #30

Hey!

Today over HERE, we have a new Uniko Challenge starting. This month we have a fun colour challenge to inspire your creativity…

ChallengeGraphic3

With Spring almost here and Easter just around the corner, it seemed fitting for this months challenge :)

With the recent Uniko release featuring a cute bunny and florals it was a perfect opportunity for me to ink them up! This time I decided to stamp them onto a different kind of surface…

UnikoChallenge#30

I’ve had these SU! mini canvas bags for AGES and whilst STILL cleaning and sorting out following our house move (yes, still sorting a year on) I came across these bags and thought they would be perfect to decorate for the beans Easter gifts. I’ll add some mini chocolate eggs of some kind to them and keep the bags once they’ve eaten the chocolate as a little memento with the box of stuff I have saved in the loft already!

UnikoChallenge#30a

I stamped the bunny from Some Bunny in SU! Early Espresso ink and the sentiment from the same clear stamp set in VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The flowers are from Pure Florals: Cosmos Uniko’s Revisited Clear Stamp Set this month HERE (there is still time to hop along, comment and be in the chance of winning the set) and I did some simple masking and stamped them in a trio of SU! Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun inks.

Ok, that’s all from me just now, but be sure to pop on over HERE to see the inspiration from our Guest Designer Cornelia and the Uniko DT. I hope to see you in the gallery 😉

Stamp Of The Week – Balloon Bash

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… Balloon Bash

BalloonBashPP

My apologies for being MIA with SOTW last week and I was planning on sharing more of the Uniko February and 4th Birthday celebrations over here too, but due to a sudden onset of a chest infection and sinusitis last Monday I was only able to keep up with the essentials over on the blogspot blog. You can catch up with all the fun and release day blog hop & giveaway HERE, there is still time to enter too.

Anyway, back to this weeks SOTW and my card for today…

2016SOTW28

I’ve had this card idea for a while now, but I sold the cloud dies I had a long time ago and I don’t think I have any cloud stamps in my stash either. Hence I had been putting this card off as I’d have to make my own stencil and to me far too time consuming for the little craft time I get 😉

But… last night I had a lucky find. I was searching through so DP scraps and came across a piece that I had die cut clouds from! How random is that?! So I used the die cut negative as a stencil and sponged white clouds randomly onto my pale blue CS.

2016SOTW28a

The balloon & string are stamped and fussy cut out and adhered to the card using foam adhesive. The sentiment is from Pure Florals: Cosmos. I added a good covering of Wink Of Stella to the balloon for added shimmer, but it is hard to see in the photos.

Ok, that’s all from me today using this set, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Don’t forget that this set is discounted in store HERE this week too.

Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today.

Uniko Challenge #23

Hey!

Today a new challenge starts over HERE on the Uniko Blog. This month we have another fun challenge for you to try with another optional twist too.

 Black & White with an optional twist – splash of colour
 You can use any stamps/products to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko goodies and if you do there is an extra chance to win a prize!
Along with the Design Team inspiration, this fortnight we have 2 lovely an awesomely talented Guest Designers joining us, be sure to stop on by their blogs and have a look around at their creations. You won’t be disappointed, I know that for sure.

I went for a über CAS card as I was limited on time to create today…

UC#23

I can’t seem to stop using the new Pure Florals: Cosmos! I don’t think it has left my acrylic block since I was making samples for the release! I opted for the ‘splash’ of colour by stamping the sentiment from Simply Said Birthday in WPlus 9 Cranberry Crush ink.

I used the new CAS(E) this Sketch! sketch seen HERE and below for the layout of my card. I decided to round the lower left corners on both the stamped panel and the base card for an added bit of interest.

CTS_132

I added a small bit of glitter to the centre of the flowers for a bit of sparkle and a little more interest along with adhering the panel using foam adhesive.

UC#23a

Ok, that’s all from me today, be sure to stop by the blog HERE to see all the inspiration and link up your creations. There are prizes to be had too!

Still TIME to join in at TIME OUT Challenges

Hey!

There is still TIME to join in on the challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges & this fortnight we have a theme challenge with an optional twist & there is a prize up for grabs too for the winner of this challenge!

 The theme this time is…
Nature with the optional twist of animals (butterflies & insects can be used)
This time I decided not to twist like my card HERE, instead I decided to use the recently released Pure Florals: Cosmos to create a card for my bestie Kerry as it is her birthday today… HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kerry!

I decided to use a few crafting items that I haven’t used yet, firstly my new purchase of 4 Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I bought my favourite trio of colours along with a green and I have to say I am really pleased with my purchase. I’ve not added water to the for this card, I simply did flat colouring and the results are really nice.

I also used my SU! Chalk Talk dies which I have had for a while now. I used the large tag die in the collection to die cut a negative frame into my CS layer and after stamping my partial sentiment from the Pure Florals: Cosmos set I foam mounted it onto my card base. The flowers are fussy cut out and mounted with foam adhesive too.

The photo above shows the sparkle of Wink of Stella I added to the flowers after colouring them. Ok, that’s all from me today but be sure to stop by the guest designer joining us at TIME OUT Challenges, Barb, be sure to stop by Barb’s blog HERE to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team.

Until my next post, thank you for stopping by today :)

Introducing…Pure Florals: Cosmos

Hey!

Thank you for all your lovely comments yesterday and for joining in on the countdown to the release :) Today the DT and I are introducing the last of the products being released this month, which means tomorrow is release day – YAY!

Anyway, let me remind you of the sneak peek I shared a few days ago…

This has to be my favourite set of the release, I do love florals (which you can probably tell from all the floral sets in the Uniko product line up!) Again this is a flower originally designed back in my Uni days, but has since had a lot of editing and been given new life.

Here is my card to share with you using this set…

I’ve been seeing a lot of colour ‘smooshing’ in blog land over the past few weeks and decided I needed to have a go myself. I used one of my acrylic blocks and coloured it with my favourite trio of SU! markers and spritzed it quite heavily with water before ‘smooshing’ it onto my card base. I had originally planned to have the panel straight, but I dropped the block and it landed at that angle and so I just went with it!

Again the DT have done an outstanding job showcasing this set, so be sure to hop along to each of their blogs and leave them some love too.
