Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!
Welcome to the Uniko Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!
I am so glad you have stopped by today as today we have a Uniko Design Team Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop (To start at the beginning of the blog hop CLICK HERE). I decided to put on this extra Design Team blog hop as not all the team received their November Release goodies in time for the release day blog hop HERE.
So, we are all here today with more inspiration using the Uniko November 2015 Release products, which are still in stock but a couple of the sets I only have a small amount of stock left 😉
Here are some more cards I made using the new clear stamps…
First up I have another card using Essentially Christmas. This time I wanted to focus on the little present/gift box in the set and a couple of the smaller accent elements.
As you can see I 2 step stamped the gift in VersaMagic Red Magic & Encore gold inks. The gift is topped with the bow from Jingle Bells as I wanted a more ‘poofey’ bow!
My next card has been on my ‘to make’ list since I first got my hands on the November Release! Finally I found the inspiration to make it 😉
I just so happened to have the ‘perfect’ shaker card mix of sequins that I bought months ago from ‘Little Things from Lucy’s Cards’. For my card I have combined the bow & fern from Jingle Bells with the Let it Snow & bauble hanger from Labelled Christmas.
I have one last card to share with you today using I LOVE Coffee…
This card was inspired by the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge seen HERE and below. As you can see it is a sketch challenge. I have been lucky enough to be Guest Designing for CC&S for the month of November & you can see my GD card HERE. Which I really liked, but as you can see I ‘bent’ the rules quite a bit & I didn’t stick to the half circle elements in the sketch (Sorry CC&S).
So this time I did! It turned out to be the perfect sketch to show you the size difference between the Uniko logo flower contained in the I LOVE Coffee set compared to the same flower contained in the previously released Flower Power #3 set.
Another thing I discovered was how the larger outline flower from Flower Power #3 can be ‘joined’ together when stamped to hang over an edge I think it helps join the two semi circles and the design to flow. After I had done my focal elements I wanted a sentiment but couldn’t find a suitable placement over the semi circles, so I decided to stamp the sentiment ‘Coffee & Friends make the perfect blend’ on my white CS panel in VersaMark Dazzle Champagne ink.
Ok, that is FINALLY all from me today! Remember, simply visit & comment along the hop by midnight Saturday 5th December, to be in the chance of winning the ENTRIE release! The WINNER will be announced Sunday 6th December.
