Woohoo – Mid Century Modern Restocks!

Happy Hump Day!

My hump day has added cheer today, with some Mid Century Modern restocks that arrived in the studio late yesterday afternoon! So today I managed to squeeze in a little creative time and inked up two of my favourites from the April/May 2019 Release 😉


Doesn’t it feel good to finally execute an idea you’ve had stored up in your head?! I’ve had this card layout idea using Mid Century Modern Florals for ages! I’ve used a trio of Altenew pink inks for the hash circle (Baby Pink, Fuchsia and Magenta). I’ve also used a trio of Altenew grey inks for the scalloped outline to the flowers (Grey Denim, Cloudy Night and Charcoal Suit).


I’ve used one of the sentiments from Birthday Wishes and some Liquid Mercury Nuvo Drops to embellish the design – just still in LOVE with Nuvo Drops!

Next I HAD to ink up Background Blocks Mid Century Modern


I still can’t quite believe how popular this stamp has been since I released it last month! If you were waiting for it to come back in stock before you ordered it, be quick as there are only a few left! I will be ordering more, but it’s going to be another couple of weeks before I get them.

Okay, for this card I was inspired by this weeks colours over at CAS Colours & Sketches seen HERE and below. Such yummy soft pastels and something a little more feminine for this stamp.


I’ve used Altenew Volcano Lake instead of Pool Party, which the background is stamped in. I then used Gery Denim for the burst stamp from Mid Century Modern Florals or Kindness Blooms! I’ve trimmed the stamped panel on an angle and adhered it to my card base using foam adhesive.


The HAPPY is the MFT Happy Birthday die and I have die cut it from a different white card to my card base, making it stand out a little more. The Birthday sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks and stamped in Altenew Baby Pink for Powder Pink. I’ve then finished the design with some Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Drops for the challenge third colour.

That’s all I had time to make today, hoping to find LOTS of creative time tomorrow as I am Bean free! I best get to packing a couple more orders tonight so I can 🙂

Uniko Sponsors CASology!

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

I do hope you are having a good week so far? It is a busy one here at Uniko HQ as we are in full swing with the October 2017 Release. We have had all the clear stamp set sneak peeks and I have been sharing some other product peeks over on Instagram and Facebook! There is also a peek at a new die collection in this post 😉

Anyway, along with all the festivities, Uniko is super duper happy to be sponsoring one of my favourite challenges this week, CASology.

This week the cue word over at CASology HERE is ‘ODD’…

Week 270 - Odd

I found this a little hard a first, but I then got to thinking of odd numbers and this card came about…

I chose an ‘odd’ number of flowers and my favourite number! I dusted of Flower Power #1 clear stamps and paired them with the NEW matching Flower Power Designer Dies. Yep, another NEW set of coordinating dies 🙂

The layout of my card is loosely based on this weeks CAS Colours & Sketches sketch seen HERE and below. I’ve my Design Team card over HERE too, if you want some more inspiration today!

To make my card a little more ‘odd’ I decided to use both positive and negative die cutting for the flower trio…

I hope you’re inspired to join in on the challenges & I look forward to seeing you in the galleries too! I will be back a little later on with another Uniko Sponsorship card!

Until then, thanks for stopping by!


Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas


Welcome back, and my apologies for my absence at the end of last week, nothing like a sickness bug to disrupt everything 🙁 I was laid up in bed Thursday and Friday, unable to do anything. Movement was a no no as it made the sickness worse.

Anyway, this week I am continuing with Rustic Christmas as my SOTW…


Today I have gone for a super CAS card. My mojo hasn’t quite returned and so I used a pin I saved on Pinterest HERE to CASE…

I also used the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge colours seen HERE and below for my card. They are having a DT Call this week and next week, so be sure to check it out and join in!

I was going to add some twine or thread above the sentiment, but decided I didn’t quite have the right colour, really need some Metallic Copper thread 😉

That’s all I have to share today, I will be back tomorrow with more using this set. Don’t forget that the set is discounted HERE for this week only.

Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by 🙂
