August 2016 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey!

With the summer holidays in full swing here in the UK and as I spend time with my beans and family you might have guessed with no sneak peeks that there is no new release this month. So instead we have another Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY instead!

This month I decided upon the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum clear stamp set, probably due to the lovely summer blooms that I am seeing on my days out and time in the garden!

This is what I came up with…

Aug2016DTbloghop

As usual I turned to a couple of challenges to spark my creativity! It’s been a little all over the place these past few weeks and so I needed a little help again ūüėČ

For the layout of my card I used the new Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 249-001

I then needed a colour scheme for my card so I turned to the Color Throwdown seen HERE and below. A lovely summery combination this week perfect for florals.

swatch405

Quite a simple CAS card with a little masking and stamping! I started by stamping the sentiment and masking it off to stamp the flower and leaves. I added a little more interest to the card by dividing my aqua strips of card rather than layering a white piece of CS to create the lines of the sketch.

Ok, that’s all from me, but there is more inspiration from the team…

Stamp Of The Week – Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum

Hey!

Apologies for the sudden lack of posts last week, the nice weather made an appearance here in the UK. So I spent quality time with the beans and my husband, making the most of it as we never know how long it will stay! By the time the beans had gone to sleep I was worn out myself and had a few early nights ūüėČ

Anyway, as I didn’t finish the SOTW last week, I am continuing with¬†Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum

PFchrysanthemumPP

Todays card is another quick CAS card…

2016SOTW72

As usual I was inspired by a few challenges, the inspiration is needed in this unusual heat we are experiencing right now! First up the layout of my card is from CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below.

CTS_181

Secondly my colour combo is inspired by the current Global Design Project challenge seen HERE and below.

GDP045_Colour_Challenge

Just some simple flat Copic colouring of the smallest Chrysanth blooms today in one of my fave colours ūüėČ Not much to say about the card really!

2016SOTW72a

Anyway, I will be back tomorrow with more inspiration featuring this set and don’t forget that this set is discounted¬†HERE¬†on the website this week.

Before I go how about a few bean Summer fun photos which I took yesterday…

BeanSummer1

Josh is in the red shirt and Ben the white, playing at their sand and water table minus the sand as they kept throwing it in the pool the day before!

BeanSummer2

Excuse the state of the garden, still trying to clear it of all the bushes and Ivy that had taken it over. Still quite a few hours work to do to get it how I want, though not always the time!

Stamp Of The Week – Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum

Hey!

A new week and a NEW Stamp Of The Week!¬†This week I am dusting off…¬†Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum

PFchrysanthemumPP

Todays card is another quick CAS card…

2016SOTW71a

This time I chose to work with the largest solid bloom, stamping it 3 times onto a white mat layer using SU! Calypso Coral ink around the Congratulations sentiment also from the set. After the ink had dried I used my Wink Of Stella pen to colour over the stamped bloom, petal by petal to add a subtle sparkle to the card. The panel is then adhered to a Calypso Coral card base.

2016SOTW71b

A fun, quick and simple card idea to mass produce. The sentiment could easily be switched to suit any occasion.

Ok, that’s all from me tonight, I am trying to do at least an hour weeding, pruning and generally clearing the back garden. We are getting rid of two boarders that were full of prickly bushes and ivy to make more grass area for the boys to play on. Then I can let them play out without constant supervision as I know that they can’t escape from the garden!!

Anyway, I will be back tomorrow with more inspiration featuring this set and don’t forget that this set is discounted¬†HERE¬†on the website this week. Plus I have another 15% off discount code THIS WEEK ONLY!

PFchrysanthemumPP

Todays card is one that I have been ‘planning’ to make for some time now, one of those I ‘want to make’ cards but never seem to get round to making! Today was the day though and here it is…

2016SOTW70

It’s a really simple card using the two smaller Chrysanthemum stamps in the set. Even though it is just a randomly layered stamping card in two colours with just a section masked for the sentiment, I had a few attempts with my stamping tonight!

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 ūüėČ 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.

Less-Is-More-Header

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!

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!

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.

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 ūüėČ 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 ūüėČ

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 ūüėČ
