Merry Monday & Winners

Hey!

I’m alive, kicking and back in the studio this week, after what seems forever in recovering from the flu and sinusitis – ugh! It’s been a rough few weeks, but I think my mojo has returned along with my (almost) good health – yay!

I usually have my Merry Monday post over on the Uniko blogspot blog, but I am also here to tell you about the newest Uniko Challenge which started on Friday HERE.

I am *so* behind on my Christmas card making with being ill and I have *so* many Uniko stamps that I have not used in such a long time, including Background Builders: Christmas 2018.

This clear stamp set features a fun outline Christmas Tree building stamp and when I saw the current sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below, I was inspired to use it to follow the sketch.

I selected a trio of Comic Markers to colour the trees and then added some much need clear Wink of Stella sparkle and some teeny tiny Nuvo Drops to represent Christmas lights. My sentiment choice is from the popular Simply Said Blocks Christmas.

Okay, how about some LONG awaited winners?!

Firstly I have the winner of the Uniko October 2019 Post Release Blog Hop HERE. Random.org has helped me select the lucky comment left along the hop and the winner is…

Introducing… Uniko Stencils – In The Forest and Let it Snow

Hey!

Welcome to Day 1 of the December 2018 Release product introductions.

This is the fun part where you get to see the sneak peeks I shared yesterday in action on cards & projects. As December is a super busy time for everyone, it is just me doing the product introductions for this release. Though the Uniko DT will be joining me on Release Day for our traditional blog hop 🙂
So I have a couple more cards to share using the 2 new stencils…
IntroDec18Stencils2
For this first card I couldn’t resist using the white stencil medium again! I just love the glossy finish it gives and also the subtle dimension to designs.
IntroDec18Stencils2a
I kept the design simple by framing my stencilled panel, adding a little ribbon loop to the edge & a sentiment from the popular Simply Said Blocks Christmas clear stamp set released back in October.
Lastly I have one more card to share using the Let it Snow stencil…
IntroDec18Stencils4
I decided to pair it with another older and popular favourite, BIG & BOLD Snow clear stamps. After inking the stencil with Altenew Ocean Waves & Dusk inks I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the snowflakes & some Simply White Gloss Nuvo Drops, slightly off centre to the dots in the design.
IntroDec18Stencils4a
I used my MISTI tool to stamp the large ‘snow’ sentiment in Desert Night ink and then again in VersaMark ink to heat emboss with Stardust EP. Some therapeutic fussy cutting & my favourite 1mm thick foam adhesive to assemble the card 😉
That’s all I have to share today using these new stencils. I do have a card HERE using them, so be sure to check it out! I will be back tomorrow with another product introduction and lots more inspiration.
As it is the season of giving, each day of the introductions I will be randomly selecting one lucky comment from either this blog post, the Uniko website blog post, Facebook or Instagram to receive an eGift Certificate code to the value of £10! So be sure to leave a lovely comment 😉 Winners will be announced on Tuesday 11th December before the release!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs
