Uniko Challenge #39 – Anything Goes with an Optional Twist of Love

Uniko Challenge #39 – Anything Goes with an Optional Twist of Love


Welcome to the January 2017 Uniko challenge and our first challenge for 2017. We have another fun and easy challenge this month to spark your creativity and I have changed the frequency and length of the challenges this year to hopefully give you a little more time to join in on the fun.

So this month we have the following challenge to inspire you…

Anything goes! Don’t you just love these kinds of challenges, I sure do. I love seeing everyones creativity and individuality shine through their creations.

Challenge Guidelines:

* You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products. Plus, there is an extra chance to win a prize if you do 😉
* 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!
* Share the challenge graphic in your post and link back to the challenge if possible 😉

This month we have another awesome Guest Designer joining us, Izzy from Izzy Scrap. Izzy has been a regular participant in the Uniko Challenges and was the lucky winner of Challenge #37. Now check out this stunner Izzy has created…

Isn’t this just amazing? I love the embossed circle frame around the stamped heart using a selection of tiny Uniko clear stamps. Be sure to hop on over to Izzy’s blog HERE to find out more and leave some love.

Here’s what I came up with…


It’s been a while since I had some time to join in on a challenge, so I decided to use a couple to inspire my creativity. First the layout of my card is from the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 271-001

Secondly, I needed a colour combo, so went the Color Throwdown challenge HERE and seen below.


Usually I’d use a lot of red, but instead I used it to make more of a masculine Valentine card. I also limited the red to highlight the stamped sentiment panel and accentuated the lone red ‘Be Mine’ with red hearts. I used my Misti to stamp the panel 🙂


As always the Uniko Design Team have some FABulous inspiration for you too, be sure to follow the links to their blogs to find out more and I am sure they’d love a nice comment too 😉
