25 Days Of Christmas Tags – Day 2 Inspired

Hey & Happy Monday!

I am back tonight with another tag to share. I am so inspired by all the beautiful tags that I have seen around social media, I’ve finally got myself organised and actually join in on Tracey McNeeley’s 25 Days Of Christmas Tags event AND not just as a sponsor!


Yep, you read that right, Uniko is one of the 26 sponsors of the 8th 25 Days Of Christmas Tags – YAY! Below is a graphic showing all of the wonderful sponsors of this event…

So I am joining in on the fun and made this tag to share…

My inspiration for this tag came from¬†Tracey’s tag HERE on Day 2. I love the fresh green’s of the berry sprig with pops of red that Tracey had used along with the gold embossing. It made me think of the bough from Peace On Earth, so I dusted my set off and got it inky!


As the bough image is just one single stamp, after I had stamped it in Altenew Moss ink, I went in with a dark green Prismacolor pencil and added some details to the leaves. The berries from Winter Foliage are stamped in Ruby Red ink and fussy cut out. The gold embossed sentiment is a mix of Simply Said II and Simply Said Christmas.


I love ribbon and I am a total hoarder of it! I have so many pretty Papertrey Ink ribbons that rarely see daylight and it is fun to be adding them to tags ūüôā This one is Bitty Polka Dot in New Leaf. The tag shape is Clearly Besotted Rounded Tag.

That’s all I have to share with you today, but I hope to be back tomorrow with more and I hope I have inspired you a little to join in on this fun event?!

Thanks for stopping by ūüôā


Introducing… Festive Sentiments


I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the October 2017 product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks and yesterday HERE the Design Team and I introduced Block Party Christmas.

We are back today, and this time we are introducing a new sentiment set called Festive Sentiments. This set is totally dedicated to sentiments, some in a lovely bold handwritten font and the others in a  small skinny uppercase handwritten font. There are loads of mix and match possibilities with the sentiments and so many other Uniko clear stamps they can be used with.

The ideas on how to use this set were free flowing and I really had fun using it! This first card is one of my favourites and I can see myself using this design as one of my mass produceable ones for this Christmas.

I simply stamped the ‘Merry Christmas’ in VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto a panel of kraft card. I then used a Tombow Mono Fine Liner to draw in some swirls from the ends of the sentiments. The stars are stamped and are from the recently released Background Builders: Seeing Stars clear stamp set (back in stock Friday). I used my Polychromo pencils to colour the stars in and added some clear Wink of Stella for a tiny bit of sparkle.

For my next card I decided to revisit a previous design I made using the Winter Foliage clear stamp seen HERE. This time instead of using a die cut for the word ‘merry’ I used the one from Festive Sentiments and heat embossed it with stardust EP.

 It sure was fun to refresh a design and replace elements so that the whole card is stamped using Uniko products (apart from ink).

Lastly for today I opted to make a one layer card and another that could be easily mass produceable…

This card is totally inspired by Lynn from The Mango Boys and Me HERE that I pinned a while back. I loved the bold ombré sentiment and simple foliage embellishments Lynn used and so had a go at recreating this with my sentiments and Winter Foliage.

Merry Christmas!

I thought I would pop by to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas and share one of my last minute CAS Christmas cards I made this week…

The ‘merry’ die cut is Stampin’ Up! and die cut from black and gold metallic paper. The foliage is a mix of stamps from Rustic Wreath and Background Builders: Winter Vines and the sentiment is from Simply Said II.

I hope you all have a wonderful day spent with family, friends and loved ones, whether you celebrate the occasion or not.
