YAY…CHRISTMAS!

Hey!

So…. it’s been a crazy week or so here at Uniko HQ, with all the normal Christmas preparations, it took me longer than expected to recover from the bugs that hit our household :(

However, I can say now that I am feeling at least 95% better, I think I will feel 100% when I’ve finished all the little finishing touches for Christmas, like make the neighbour cards & close family cards! Yep, I STILL have cards to make!

I did find a little energy at the weekend to create a few Christmas cards that will most likely arrive late as I missed the ‘official’ last posting dates…doh! Anyway, this is one of the CAS designs I came up with…

I decided to use the recently released Jingle Bells clear stamp set as the main focus and added a sentiment from the retiring Label Love: Christmas clear stamp set.

Even though it was time consuming I decided to stamp all 4 layers of the poinsettia, fussy cutting one and also stamping, embossing and fussy cutting the bell. I added some clear Wink Of Stella to the bell for a little subtle shimmer and some gold pearls finished the design off. I am quite pleased with the design & hope the recipients do too (when they get them)!

Anyway, best dash, these cards are not going to make themselves and I hope to share them here too with you all. If I don’t make it back to wish you all a Merry Christmas I will now!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Stamp Of The Week – Label Love: Christmas

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week. Basically each week I will be choosing a stamp set to dust off & give some inky love to. Though I am open to requests of stamp sets to revisit, so if you have a request either leave a comment or drop me an email. Along with giving the set some love, the featured set is also discounted in store for that week.

This week I am dusting off… Label Love: Christmas

LabelLoveChristmas

As I missed half of the week last week (due to November Release prep) & I will be using last weeks Stamp Of The Week, Label Love: Thank you BOTH clear stamp sets are available at a discount for this week in store HERE & HERE.

After the mammoth posting yesterday over on blogger, I never made it back to share my card for Stamp Of The Week :( though I’m here today instead, all be it later than planned but I’m here!

SOTW17

My card is inspired by the current challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges, which Uniko is sponsoring 😉 The theme is Christmas with an optional twist of using pink & or purple.

For my card I used a combination of Label Love: Christmas and Stunning Snowflakes, I also incorporated some masking, stamping & cutting out a little window in my label…

SOTW17a

Oh, and of course I added glitter & rhinestones for good measure! As you can see (hopefully), by cutting the inner part of the label where I would normally stamp the sentiment, allowed me to stamp it onto my white snowflake matt layer. I then foam mounted the glittered edged label to create a lovely dimension to my card & focal point.

There is still plenty of time to join in on the challenge, I hope to see you in the gallery :)

Ok, that’s all from me today I have tomorrows ‘Introducing’ post to prepare as we continue the countdown to the November Release on the 11th! Eeeeek! I am way too excited and rather pleased with the trio of samples I am sharing tomorrow 😉 Until then, thank you for stopping by today.

Anyway, on to today’s card…

SOTW16

Today I decided on another non traditional colour scheme Christmas card, it was firstly inspired by the new Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 211-001

With the beans nap time getting slightly shorter & needing to create a few cards that I will be sharing HERE tomorrow, I needed a jump start on my creativity and using a sketch really reduces thinking time, giving more creative time!!

I decided to ink up the music label contained in the set, paring it with the Let it Snow sentiment and a snowflake from Stunning Snowflakes embossed in silver & stardust embossing powder.

SOTW16a

I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, some Papertrey Ink satin ribbon (slowly using my stash!), some mini rhinestones and also edged the label in glitter which is quite hard to see in the photo, but really adds to the sparkle :)

Ok, that’s all from me today, I’m super busy in the home studio this week preparing for the upcoming November Release on the 11th November :) Plus I’m Guest Designing for one of my favourite challenges & Uniko is still sponsoring the ongoing TIME OUT Challenge HERE. All this fun starts tomorrow HERE I hope to see you!

Until, tomorrow with my next Stamp Of The Week post, thank you for stopping by today.

Anyway, on to today’s trio of cards…

SOTW15

Today I wanted to focus on the sentiments & the smaller images in the set to create CAS cards easy to mass produce in a hurry if needed!

Here is a close up of the trios details…

SOTW15a

SOTW15b

SOTW15c

As you can see I kept the stamped colours to a minimum, basically black with a tiny bit of red for the holly leaves & silver for the snowflake. Embellishments were also kept to a minimum using just rhinestones & glitter. I felt that the diagonal striped card provided a contrast to the minimalistic design but only seeing a small border around the stamped panel kept the overall design CAS.

Ok, that’s all from me today, I’m super busy in the home studio this week preparing for the upcoming November Release on the 11th November :) Plus I’m Guest Designing for one of my favourite challenges & Uniko is still sponsoring the ongoing TIME OUT Challenge HERE.

Uniko Sponsors TIME OUT Challenges & Stamp Of The Week!

I’m back today with a special Stamp Of The Week post, as this fortnight Uniko are sponsoring the new TIME OUT Challenge HERE, so I decided to combine two.

As usual with Uniko being a sponsor of the challenge, there are PRIZES up for grabs! To be in the chance of winning a in stock stamp set of choice from the Uniko store simply join in on the challenge HERE.

This fortnight the challenge is…

CHRISTMAS

with the optional twist of using Pink & or Purple

You have until the end of the TIME OUT Challenge ( ) to leave a comment to be in the chance of winning.

Ok, so onto my card…

SOTW15

As you can see I went for the optional twist! I decided to pair my label from Label Love: Thank you with Stunning Snowflakes which are heat embossed in white onto watercolour card. I then did a bit of splishy splashy watercoloring with my Zig Clean Colour pen.

SOTW15a

I then created a semi see through tag for the card as I wanted the embossed snowflakes and pink watercolours to show through. I die cut the Clearly Besotted Rounded Tag from vellum, then added a PTI Limitless Layer die cut which I stamped one of the labels from Label Love: Thank you onto in VersaMagic. The sentiment is from Label Love: Christmas and the tag is adhered to the card using foam adhesive under the label die cut. I added a ribbon & bakers twine treatment to the tag and finished the whole card off with a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Ok, that is all from me today, don’t forget to check the challenge out HERE, inspiration HERE and follow the links to the DT cards to leave the Uniko DT some love to be in the chance of winning Label Love: Thank you!

Stamp Of The Week – Label Love: Thank you

Hey!

I’m back today with a little card & tag ensemble using this weeks Stamp Of The Week – Label Love: Thank you. I’ve gone Christmassy too, combining it with sentiments & stars from Label Love: Christmas & a little dot trio from Balloon Bash…

SOTW13

I was inspired by a card I spotted on Pinterest HERE and seen below by the awesomely talented & sweet Dawn McVey and thought I would do a CASE using the labels.

Since making my little ensemble I have added the Heidi Swapp Mini Minc Machine to my Christmas list, as I want to foil everything! LOL! I had drew the cross hatch style frame with a pencil then went over the lines with a gold Spica pen. I think it would have been much nicer foiled or now thinking about it I could have used my VersaMark pen & embossing powder.

SOTW13a

Anyway, after making the card I decided to make a matching tag using Papertrey Ink’s Tag Sale #4 die along with my Sizzix framelits 2 1/2″ circle die.

SOTW13c

Here is a photo of the ensemble…

SOTW13b

That’s all I have to share with you all today, I hope I have inspired you a little. I will be back again tomorrow with more to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today.

Stamp Of The Week – Label Love: Thank you

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week. Basically each week I will be choosing a stamp set to dust off & give some inky love to. Though I am open to requests of stamp sets to revisit, so if you have a request either leave a comment or drop me an email. Along with giving the set some love, the featured set is also discounted in store for that week.

This week I am dusting off Label Love: Thank you

LabelLoveThankYouPP

This set has a multitude of possibilities and I hope to show you what it is capable of this week. With Christmas the top priority for many crafters and card makers right now, I will be paring it with another of the Label Love series – Label Love: Christmas along with other Uniko stamp sets. Don’t forget that the set is 15% off this week HERE.

Anyway, today I have used the set with Background Builders: Squared and gone for a geometric rainbow style card…

SOTW12

I said in yesterday’s post that I would be showing more examples of easy geometric style cards suitable to enter into our current challenge HERE.

As you can see I have gone for circles. I have stamped the label in black ink onto white card & punched it out using my 1 3/4″ circle punch. I have then double die cut a larger circle to create a circle frame so that you can see the rainbow stripes between. For this I used my Sizzix Framelits 2″ and 2 1/2″ circle dies.

SOTW12a

To go along with the rainbow theme I coloured the outline THANKS sentiment in the colours I used for the stripes and added a few candy dots & rhinestones in some of the colours used too.

Ok, that is all from me today using this weeks Stamp Of The Week, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. I have another quick CAS geometric card HERE to share with you, so be sure to check it out. Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today.
