June 2019 Non-Release Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Happy Weekend!

Welcome to the June 2019 Non-Release Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY! Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the beginning of the hop & where I have introduced everything!

So, with Father’s Day just next weekend, I thought it would be useful for some masculine card inspiration! So I set the Design Team & myself the challenge to use the previously released Explosion! Explosion! Additions & Designer Dies Explosion Collection for this months revisited hop!

This collection of Uniko products are perfect for those hard to create masculine cards! The comic book and Pop Art trends are still going strong in the paper crafting world too 😉

As usual we have our GIVEAWAY, so be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win a £25 eGift Certificate code to spend over on the Uniko website. You have until midnight BST Saturday 15th June 2019 to comment along the hop.

And here’s what I created…


I was totally inspired by the current sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches seen HERE and below. The rectangle feature of the sketch screamed to have the halftone explosion ‘spotlight’ stamped. AND it looks like great minds think alike, as I wasn’t the only one. Be sure to check out DT Julies card 😉

FMS Final 391-001

I absolutely LOVED the Catherine Pooler ink colours I used for THIS card using the Explosion! collection, that I decided to use them again! I’ve used Rockin’ Red, Suede Shoes and Limoncello.


I’ve used Copic Makers Y35, YR09 and YR16 to colour the BAM! and the Happy Father’s Day sentiment is from Simply Said.

That’s all I have to share with you today using this collection of Uniko products, but be sure to visit my awesome Design Team for even more inspiration. Don’t forget to leave some comment love, which will also put you in the chance of winning a £25 eGift Certificate!
