January 2018 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!
Hey & Happy Sunday!
It’s time for another Uniko Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY – Whoohoo!! As it is non release month here at Uniko, the Design Team and myself challenge ourselves to dust off and give some fresh inky love to a previously released product. Usually I choose the product and challenge the DT to come up with something new.
This month I gave the DT a BIG task of choosing their favourite product from ALL of the ones released in 2017! That’s a choice from 24 clear stamp sets, 5 stencil designs and 2 designer die collections. That might not sound a lot compared to other companies out there, but that is a HUGE inventory for me and Uniko 😉
Having said that I really had a hard time choosing a product to focus on for todays hop, I love all the products I design and ‘yes’, I often say how one is a particular favourite, maybe because the inspiration using it continues to flow easily?
Anyway, I ‘ummed’ and ‘ahhhd’ for a while and then remembered that Uniko was being featured in a magazine this month! So I searched my emails for the information and whilst doing the weekly food shop, stopped by the magazine section and picked myself up a copy of Quick Cards Made Easy!
Here are a few peeks at the feature…
So, after seeing this it inspired me to dust off Reach For The Stars and make my card for today!
I used a mixture of Distress Oxide inks, Altenew Desert Night and VersaFine Onyx Black inks to create my galaxy/night sky background. The ‘thankful’ sentiment is also from Reach For The Stars and is heat embossed in Cosmic Shimmer Detail White EP.
Forever the CASness will remain and I simply opted to adhere the panel to a white card base with foam adhesive. Before which I did ‘bravely’ splatter some water over the panel for a oxide effect!
That’s all I have to share for today, I was hoping to have created more using this set and others, but my creativity is being hampered by day to day running of Uniko and being a mummy to 2 cheeky Beans!!
Anyway, be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win a £15 eGift Certificate to spend in store. You have until Midnight (GMT) Sunday 21st January 2018 to comment.
