Back In Action!


Apologies for being absent for such a long time, my mojo seemed to have a min break and Oh my, what a busy couple of weeks! We are now settling back into our ‘normal’ routine after Easter Break. Thankfully today has worn the beans out and they were flat out in five minutes of going to bed – whooohooo!

That meant I had a little ‘extra’ time to sit, create and get my mojo back into action to create a card to share with you…

Plus I have more restocks arriving early next week too AND I’ve the May Release to play with this week too ūüėČ keep your eyes peeled for some sneaky sneak peeks!

Anyway, back to my card. I’ve used the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below as a jumping point and used my ‘go to’ Altenew ink colours as they are so good for layering and take away the hard thinking work!


The sentiment is from Simply Said and I added a few Stampin’ Up! enamel dots to embellish. The sentiment strip is raised on foam pads and these are Stix2 Anything and they come in a hand 1mm thickness which I have used as well as the standard 2mm thickness.

Ok, that’s all I have to share with you all tonight, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Until then, why not check out the Design Team Inspiration Rahmat is sharing over HERE, you’re sure to be inspired :)


Happy 3rd Birthday TIME OUT Challenges!


Today Uniko is joining in with TIME OUT Challenges to celebrate their 3rd Birthday and we are also  very proud to be one of the sponsors!

This fortnight the challenge¬†HERE¬†is a theme…

Love/Friendship¬†with the Optional Twist of¬†‘Spotlight Stamping’¬†

Spotlight Stamping is defined as adding colour to only one raised spot of your image. For all of the challenge details, information on the other sponsors and a wonderful array of inspiration CLICK HERE.

The Uniko Design Team and myself have joined in on the fun and created some cards to inspire you to join in and this is what I created…

I’m still in LOVE with the NEW Uniko Style clear stamp set released at the weekend, I don’t think the set has left my desk since I first inked it up! I’ve combined the blooms from Uniko Style with a sentiment from Originally Organic Additions (currently available on backorder and due in stock on the 10th March)

I’m loving this Spring fresh colour scheme too, I used it HERE on my CAS Colours & Sketches card too and couldn’t resit using it again. The layout of my card is from the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 277-001

I used my MISTI to stamp each of the blooms and all of the layers. It was quite time consuming as I’ve used a total of 9 colours, but totally worth it. ¬†Because if I didn’t get a clean stamped image with the first stamp, I could ink up and stamp again, this is such a useful aspect of using the MISTI.

The design is a little busier than my normal CAS style, but I wanted to show how pretty this bloom is stamped in a pattern. Ok, that’s all from me, but be sure to click on the links below to see what some of the Uniko DT have created to inspire you…

Introducing… Uniko Style


I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the February & 5th Birthday product release are almost over, we’ve only todays product to introduce, which means tomorrow is release day!

Yesterday the Design Team and I introduced Explosion! Additions. If you missed it and the previous products on Wednesday, Tuesday and Monday you can catch up HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

Today we are back to introduce you to Uniko Style. Now, those of you who know me and my love for Marimekko and the origin of Uniko then this set will be no surprise to you. Those who have requested it I introduce…Uniko Style, a Scandinavian inspired floral building set and I am in LOVE! I really got to sit and ‘play’ with this set properly yesterday and it is better than I imagined it to be ūüėČ

This first card was inspired by the current Freshly Made Sketch layout seen HERE and below. I had used it on yesterdays card HERE and whilst making that this idea came to me. The set contains a small stamp which can be repeatedly stamped in the round to create a dandelion design. I have done this down the right hand side of my base card in Lawn Fawn Manatee ink.

FMS Final 276-001

However, I didn’t want the overall design to be too busy, so instead of repeating the stamped design on the left hand side, I decided to add a strip of Papertrey Ink Soft Stone card. The Uniko Style flower is stamped in Altenew ink and the sentiment is from Originally Organic Additions.

My last card for today is inspired by the new CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below.



And this is the result…

It was quite a time consuming design to stamp using my MISTI, but WOW, the results were even better than I could have imagined ūüėČ
