Today I am welcoming back Sarah G from Funky Fossil Designs back to the Uniko Design Team and family!
Sarah decided to step down from the DT a while back, but after introducing the NEW Uniko Stencils, I managed to persuade her to jump back on board to focus on and promote them specifically a little bit more – yay!
Sarah is over on the Uniko blogspot blog HERE with a some Design Team Inspiration, appropriately named Stencil Sunday. Below is a little peek at one of the projects Sarah is sharing, but be sure to head on over and see the full post, leave some love and be totally inspired to get your stencils out!
Whooohoo for Friday!
The first working week of the New Year is nearly over and The Beans return to nursery on Monday. Not that I haven’t enjoyed having them home and taking them out places, but it has cost a small fortune to keep them entertained and they like routine 😉
I seem to be able to make a card and blog every other day so far this year, wondering if I can keep it up! Todays card is one that I have wanted to make since the December Release, when I introduced the new Stencil Doodle Flower. I wanted to show an example of how it could be combined with the previously released Background Blocks: Doodle Flower.
I started by using the lower section of the 6″ x 6″ Doodle Flower Stencil and applying Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers. I then stamped the Background Blocks: Doodle Flower and fussy cut 3 of the flowers before colouring them with Prismacolor pencils.
The sentiment is from the December Release Freebie, So Much. There are still a few of these freebies left, which are added to qualifying orders of £20 or more before postage costs and after any discounts have been applied!
The fussy cut flowers are adhered to the one layer card using double sided tape and I added a Stampin’ Up! enamel heart and dots to the centres for a little added interest.
That’s all I have to share for today, but I hope I have inspired you a little?! If you want some more inspiration using the Doodle Flower Stencil, be sure to head on over to DT Member Rahmat’s blog HERE and HERE. Rahmat has been having fun with the December Release goodies now she has her hands on them!!

So, I have a little trio of cards to share with you today using some of these products. I was hoping to have more than three projects, but my plans were foiled yesterday by a poorly bean with a high temp, which consequently meant no nursery and no free time for this mummy! Hopefully what I do have to share will inspire you?!
First up a snowflake card…
I reached for my newest Altenew Shades Of Purple inks and masked off a section of the stencil before pouncing the ink onto my card base from lightest to darkest to match the lower left angled section of the sketch.
The snowflake is the medium size of the trio and after die cutting from white card I then applied Lavender Fields ink and then applied a sparkly covering of Stampin’ Up! glitter 😉 The sentiment is from Simply Said II.
Next I wanted to give the new Flower Power 1 – 6 Collection of dies some love…
Firstly I decided to reach for Flower Power #4 one of the flowers I tend to neglect I decided to create a cascade effect of all the elements contained in the set, reaching for my trusty colour combination to inspire me. With it being the season of thanks I used a sentiment from Flower Power #3.
All the stamps in this series are designed to coordinate and mix and match with one another to help stretch your supplies and provide you with more creative options.
Lastly, I reached for one of my favourites, Flower Power #2. This flower is inspired by Cherry Blossom and as I have been designing Spring themed clear stamps in the studio I was inspired to use this flower.
I stamped a subtle background using the ‘Just For You’ sentiment and layered my stamped and die cut flower over the top adhering with foam adhesive. I then decided to pair the ‘Happy Birthday’ from Simply Said Blocks.
That’s all I have to share with you today, but I know the Design Team have a wealth of inspiration to share with you, prepare to be WOWED!
