Introducing…Rustic Wreath

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have come back today, as here at Uniko preparations for the November product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 3 clear stamp sets being released and yesterday HERE the Design Team and I introduced the first two clear stamp sets.

So, without further ado lets get to introducing the last of the products being released! Today we are introducing you to the last clear stamp set being released called Rustic Wreath.

This set is a follow on set to Rustic Christmas, but it also coordinates with images from Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions and Winter Foliage.

For my first card I was inspired by the current challenge over at Fusion Card Challenge HERE and seen below. I was mainly inspired by the sketch, but I interpreted the little wreath in the photo too, adding a layered sprig created from 4 of the tiny stamps contained in the set.

Apart from the little bit of fussy cutting, this was a super quick card to make, another to add to the ‘last minute’ makes if I run out of Christmas cards last minute!

Next I have two more super duper quick CAS cards…

This first card uses a layout I have used before, which lends itself to an all over stamped pattern. As it is just a small section of the card that is decorated it still has a CAS look to it. All the stamps I have used are from Rustic Wreath.

This second card literally took 5 minutes to make and is a one layer card. This time I have combined the sentiment from Rustic Wreath with a combination of stamps from Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions.

Again, I clustered the images, starting with the trio of Poinsettias and the small area is quite busy but as there is still LOADS of white space the card remains CAS.

Hey!

The Uniko Design Team and our Guest Designer are here today with a reminder and a little more inspiration for October Uniko challenge. This month we have another fun challenge to spark your creativity…

Who doesn’t LOVE rainbows?!

You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products.

Email entries welcome, just email a photo of your card to bev@uniko.co.uk and I will add it to the Uniko Flickr gallery and link up!

We have an awesome Guest Designer for this months challenge, Hannelie from Desert Diva. Hannelie was also the winner from the Uniko Challenge #35 and she has created another stunner to inspire you…

Isn’t this just amazing? The simplicity and monochrome stamping with splash of rainbow hearts is such a unique and fun way to approach the challenge. Please pop on by Hannelie’s blog HERE and leave some love and find out more about this creation.

This is what I came up with…

As I am revisiting Rustic Christmas this week as Stamp Of The Week, I thought I’d use it for my challenge reminder too 😉

The tiny baubles in this set are perfect for colourful Christmas cards. To create this card I simply traced round a circle die for a template, stamped the sentiment and then randomly stamped the baubles in a variety of bright and cheerful Stampin’ Up! inks.

USC#37a

After I had finished stamping, I went over the baubles with my clear Wink of Stella pen for a little subtle sparkle. That’s all from me today, but be sure to pop on over HERE to see what the Uniko Design Team have created to inspire you. The link up for the challenge can also be found there.
Now, if you need a little more incentive to join in, how about some prizes?

I’ve had a lovely bean free day, but it has been jam packed with a mix of catching up on housework and work in the studio. I was hoping for a little more creative time, hence the CAS card tonight!

Today I have a colourful rainbow Christmas card to share. There is nothing like a rainbow of colour to cheer up a frustrating night of silly little problems!

2016SOTW95{click photo for a closer look}

For my card I simply stamped the rustic tree in a variety of bright Stampin’ Up! inks! I then added a white heat embossed sentiment on strip of black card, adhered using foam adhesive and a trio of Stampin’ Up! enamel dots to finish the card off. Super quick again and an easily mass produceable card!

Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas

Hey!

Welcome back, and my apologies for my absence at the end of last week, nothing like a sickness bug to disrupt everything :( I was laid up in bed Thursday and Friday, unable to do anything. Movement was a no no as it made the sickness worse.

Anyway, this week I am continuing with Rustic Christmas as my SOTW…

RusticChristmasPP

Today I have gone for a super CAS card. My mojo hasn’t quite returned and so I used a pin I saved on Pinterest HERE to CASE…

I also used the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge colours seen HERE and below for my card. They are having a DT Call this week and next week, so be sure to check it out and join in!

CC&S color196-001

I was going to add some twine or thread above the sentiment, but decided I didn’t quite have the right colour, really need some Metallic Copper thread 😉

Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas

Hey!

Welcome back, this week I have chosen Rustic Christmas as my SOTW…

RusticChristmasPP

Today I have gone for a more rustic feel to my card, seeing as that is in the title of this clear stamp set 😉 I was having a look through some of my recent Stampin’ Up! stash and found this lovely kraft CS panel with a clear embossed woodgrain effect…

2016SOTW93

The tree is stamped in Old Olive with a little accent red Robin. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink and I added some linen thread & bow from my stash and a cream heart embellishment.

Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas

Hey!

Welcome back, this week I have chosen Rustic Christmas as my SOTW…

RusticChristmasPP

I’m certainly getting into the Christmas spirit and I am really looking forward to the BIG day this year. The beans are going to love it and understand a little bit more and I am sure they will LOVE the presents Santa brings them 😉

Anyway, here is my card for today…

2016SOTW91

{click photo for a closer view}

A classic Christmas Tree card! I’m loving bold stripes at the moment and the papers in the Stampin’ Up! Pop Of Pink DSP collection is a fave of mine at the moment. I am also ‘making’ myself use them instead of just admiring them on the shelf!

2016SOTW91a

{click photo for a closer view}

I added some Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy Satin Ribbon, a bow of SU! Bakers Twine and a few ‘very old’ A Muse star gems! A little more to this card than yesterdays card HERE but still fairly mass produceable but more suitable for the hand delivered cards.

That’s all I have to share today, I will be back tomorrow with more using this set. Don’t forget that the set is discounted HERE for this week only.

Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas

Hey!

Welcome back and welcome back Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). I took a little hiatus with this feature as I prepared for the recent Uniko clear stamp set release and the recent Happy Stampers Festival. But I am back today with a new chosen clear stamp set to give some fresh inky love to!

This week I have chosen Rustic Christmas

RusticChristmasPP

I’ve a couple of reasons for my choice this week, firstly this set has not long arrived back in stock and secondly I ‘really’ need to make a conscious effort to start on my Christmas cards so I am not in a huge rush with only a few days to go!

Anyway, onto my card for today…

2016SOTW90

{click photo for a closer view}

This fun little clear stamp set comes with some dinky baubles and often I forget to give these little accent stamps the love they deserve!

When I saw the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! HERE and seen below, I thought it would be fun to create a row of colourful, sparkly baubles. I also used the colour inspiration from the Fusion Card Challenge seen HERE and below.

New Banner-018

I ‘tried’ to recreate the wonky stacked effect of the chairs in the photo too. I’m not sure I quite achieved that, but overall I am happy with the result. The sentiment is also from the set and it is in one of my favourite modern fonts.

2016SOTW90a

{click photo for a closer view}

I decided to keep this card ‘very’ mail friendly and simply adhered it to my card base using double sided tape. I added a little bit of clear Wink Of Stella to the baubles for that Christmas Sparkle and left it as that!

That’s all I have to share today, I will be back tomorrow with more using this set. Don’t forget that the set is discounted HERE for this week only.

Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by :)
