March 2017 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Happy Weekend!

It’s the 11th of the month, which means as it is not a release month (sorry, I promise it’ll be worth the wait till next month) the Design Team and I are here today with the usual Design Team Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!

This month we have decided to dust off and revisit the previously released Some Bunny clear stamp set…

Here is what I created using the set…

I needed some creative inspiration, as my lack of energy and mojo is a little lacking, so I turned to the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge seen HERE and below for the layout of my card.

FMS Final 278-001

I decided to dust off my Prismacolour Pencils to colour in the bunny, which I stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa, so the lines blended in with the colouring. I decided not to add a sentiment, so that I could use the card for a number of different occasions, such as Mother’s Day, Easter, A Just Because or New Baby card. As I have added pink accents, it does lend itself more to the feminine side.

A Look Back At 2016!

Hey & Happy Boxing Day!

I do hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day, I think this year has to of been one of the best for us as a family of four :) Seeing the beans faces as they walked into the front room with all the new toys and train set laid out was a picture. Plus, I just loved every minute watching them play together learning their new toys and then pulling daddy down to the floor to help and play. It truly melted my heart.

Here are a couple of photos from Christmas morning, apologies for my bed head!

Anyway, back to the title of this blog post… A Look Back At 2016! This year has been an amazing year for myself personally, but it has been a fantastic year for Uniko. We have had 5 fabulous releases, with 16 new clear stamps sets lining the Uniko HQ shelves.
I don’t know about you, but to me this year has almost passed by in a blur! With that in mind I thought it would be nice now the main seasonal festivities are over and as 2016 draws to a close, to take a look back at Uniko’s 2016.
Today, I am looking back at the 2016 February Release. This was Uniko’s 4th Birthday celebration and I launched 4 clear stamp sets, Beautiful Blooms IIII Love TeaSome Bunny and Simply Said. So, I dusted the sets off and got to work with the help of my Christmas present from Santa, the MISTI and made a few new cards to share with you…

First up is a card using Beautiful Blooms III, the perfect set to get my MISTI into action! This set features a lovely modern 4 step layering bloom. I decided to only use 3 of the layers, but with the help of the MISTI it was a breeze and such a quicker process.

I’ve not had the time to sit and ‘play’ with my stamps or join in with challenges, so I was inspired to join in on the current CAS(E) this Sketch! sketch for the layout of my card seen HERE.

I also got my new and neglected Altenew inks out for this card. The sentiment is from Originally Organic, a clear stamp set I will be looking at later in the week, but the sentiments work perfectly with florals, so I couldn’t resit using it and showing you how Uniko clear stamp sets can work together for even more possibilities.

Next I was inspired by THIS photo on Pinterest to use I LOVE Tea clear stamp set and replicate some blue and white fine bone china.

The teacups are stamped in Encore Gold ink and again I used my MISTI for this simple stamped image. I don’t know if this happens to you, but when I stamp using metallic inks onto smooth card the image can slide slightly. So using the MISTI prevented this from happening :)

The teacups were decorated using the small Beautiful Blooms III image from the I LOVE Tea clear stamp set and the larger bloom from Beautiful Blooms III. As you can see I love to coordinate clear stamp sets when I am designing them! The sentiment is from Simply Said and as I need a few thank you cards post Christmas that was the reasoning behind my choice.

Lastly, but no means least I inked up Some Bunny clear stamp set. Though this set is oriented towards Spring and Easter, it is also a perfect set for New Baby cards, Children’s Birthdays and more.

I used the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch seen HERE for the layout of my card and I opted to make a New Baby Congratulations card. No harm in having one of these on hand for 2017, I know a few people expecting next year.

The bunny is such a fun and cute image, perfect for those who like to colour. But it also suits some paper piecing, for when you are short on time! The congratulations sentiment is another from Simply Said.

So, that’s a quick look back at the February 2016 Release, I hope I have given you a little inspiration to dust off these sets if you have them 😉 There is amount of 3 of the sets in stock on the website and I have planned some restocks to arrive in January.

I hope you will join me again tomorrow, when I will be taking a look back at the 2016 April Release. Until then, thank you for stopping by.

Hugs

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 😉
