I was inspired to play along with the current Freshly Made Sketch challenge seen HERE and below. I also used a couple of the Uniko branding colours for my card as they are 2 of my favourites 😉

FMS Final 338-001

I started by randomly stamping the coffee cup from I LOVE Coffee in VersaFine Onyx Black ink over my base card. I then went in an embellished the coffee cups with the small Uniko flower, stamping them in Altenew Puffy Heart ink. The trio of white card strips are adhered using 1mm foam adhesive and the ‘I Love Coffee’ sentiment is stamped in Altenew Aqualicious ink.

The weather here in the UK is cold and we have snow forecast for Sunday here in the NE (I’ll believe, it when I see it!) and so I thought I would combine my LOVE of snowflakes with the I LOVE Coffee cup!

Uniko2017winterCLBH1b

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I started by using a snowflake from Stunning Snowflakes and stamping it on the background in VersaMark Dazzle Frost and also the sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped in Altenew Pure Graphite ink.

I then stamped the coffee cup from I LOVE Coffee, coloured it with some NEW Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and then heat embossed the same snowflake in white on top. After fussy cutting the cup out I have mounted it onto a large Designer Die Snowflake cut from some soft gold shimmer card.

Fall2017CLBH1

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

The weather here in the UK is certainly getting cooler and signs of Autumn (Fall) are appearing with leaves on the floor. I’m not a tea or coffee drinker, but I do like a hot chocolate (cocoa) and sometimes you just need to drink a hot beverage out of a fancy tea cup!

As you can see I was inspired to use the I LOVE Tea clear stamp set, combined with a sentiment and coffee bean trio from I LOVE Coffee and a leaf from Natures Treasures. I was also inspired by this weeks sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!HERE and seen below…

Stamp Of The Week – I LOVE Coffee

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… I LOVE Coffee

ILoveCoffeePP

I’ve had a really productive day today, with the sun out it sure does inspire me to ‘do’ rather than procrastinate! I had a lovely morning running my class at The Paperlane and it was lovely to see some faces I haven’t seen for a while and of course those who come every month :)

Anyway, I had this card idea the other night and tonight I made time to make it…

2016SOTW54

I was totally inspired by the new sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! HERE and seen below. The I LOVE COFFEE banner in the set was perfect to create the trio of rectangular elements shown in the sketch.

CTS_167

I still wanted to use and add some of the other stamps contained in the set on my card but keep them subtle, so I randomly stamped the coffee cup and beans onto a Soft Stone CS layer using VersaMark Dazzle Champagne ink. This panel is mounted onto a Smokey Slate card base and the trio of sentiments adhered using foam adhesive.

2016SOTW54a

Short & sweet from me tonight, I have still a few jobs to cross off the list in preparation for the mini April Release! If you didn’t catch my posts HERE and HERE the Uniko Design Team and I have introduced the first product being released today.

I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Don’t forget that this set is discounted HERE on the website this week.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Stamp Of The Week – I LOVE Coffee

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… I LOVE Coffee

ILoveCoffeePP

With my family leaving today to enjoy a couple of nights by the seaside and the beans going to their grandparents for the day I was hoping for a full day of crafting. I did a few cards, but my creative mojo was lacking energy today and I didn’t get as much done as planned.

I did get to make todays SOTW card…

2016SOTW53

The result something a little out of my normal CAS comfort zone, a little ‘busier’ than normal, but the bright cheery ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below were perfect for the rainy and gloomy day we have had.

I treated myself to a new Reverse Confetti die and have been itching to use it since it arrived on Tuesday, hence its use on my card 😉

2016SOTW53A

Short & sweet from me tonight, so that’s all from me today and using this set, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Don’t forget that this set is discounted HERE on the website this week.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Stamp Of The Week – I LOVE Coffee

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… I LOVE Coffee

ILoveCoffeePP

I decided I wanted to play along with the current “Less is More” challenge again HERE which is to use non white white space! Basically a card with a coloured card base and plenty of uncluttered space on the card.

Less-Is-More-Header

I was out walking with the beans this morning and the card idea came to me as I was thinking about which set to revisit this week. So as soon as they went down for their nap I set to making it…

2016SOTW50

I started out by creating a mask of the coffee cup and placing it onto my kraft card base. This helped me to place and trace around a heart die. I then set to stamping the coffee bean trio around the tracing of the heart.

2016SOTW50a

The coffee cup is stamped on a separate piece of kraft CS, as is the red heart from I LOVE Tea and they are both fussy cut out. The “I Love” part of the sentiment is a partial stamped sentiment from Simply Said and the Coffee is a partial stamp from the I LOVE Coffee set.

Ok, that’s all from me today and using this set, I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Don’t forget that this set is discounted HERE on the website this week. Oh, and you might want to join in on the challenges this month over at “Less is More” as Uniko is the sponsor this month 😉

Thanks for stopping by :)

Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Uniko Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!

Hey!

I am so glad you have stopped by today as today we have a Uniko Design Team Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop (To start at the beginning of the blog hop CLICK HERE). I decided to put on this extra Design Team blog hop as not all the team received their November Release goodies in time for the release day blog hop HERE.

So, we are all here today with more inspiration using the Uniko November 2015 Release products, which are still in stock but a couple of the sets I only have a small amount of stock left 😉

Here are some more cards I made using the new clear stamps…

C2CBH3

First up I have another card using Essentially Christmas. This time I wanted to focus on the little present/gift box in the set and a couple of the smaller accent elements.

C2CBH3a

As you can see I 2 step stamped the gift in VersaMagic Red Magic & Encore gold inks. The gift is topped with the bow from Jingle Bells as I wanted a more ‘poofey’ bow!

C2CBH2

My next card has been on my ‘to make’ list since I first got my hands on the November Release! Finally I found the inspiration to make it 😉

Again, I was inspired by the colours & photo inspiration from the current Fusion Card Challenge HERE and seen below. I just love the colours, they’re one of my favourite Christmas go to combos.

Sketch09

I just so happened to have the ‘perfect’ shaker card mix of sequins that I bought months ago from ‘Little Things from Lucy’s Cards’. For my card I have combined the bow & fern from Jingle Bells with the Let it Snow & bauble hanger from Labelled Christmas.

C2CBH2a

I have one last card to share with you today using I LOVE Coffee

C2CBH1

This card was inspired by the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge seen HERE and below. As you can see it is a sketch challenge. I have been lucky enough to be Guest Designing for CC&S for the month of November & you can see my GD card HERE. Which I really liked, but as you can see I ‘bent’ the rules quite a bit & I didn’t stick to the half circle elements in the sketch (Sorry CC&S).

sketch 152

So this time I did! It turned out to be the perfect sketch to show you the size difference between the Uniko logo flower contained in the I LOVE Coffee set compared to the same flower contained in the previously released Flower Power #3 set.

C2CBH1a

Another thing I discovered was how the larger outline flower from Flower Power #3 can be ‘joined’ together when stamped to hang over an edge :) I think it helps join the two semi circles and the design to flow. After I had done my focal elements I wanted a sentiment but couldn’t find a suitable placement over the semi circles, so I decided to stamp the sentiment ‘Coffee & Friends make the perfect blend’ on my white CS panel in VersaMark Dazzle Champagne ink.

Ok, that is FINALLY all from me today! Remember, simply visit & comment along the hop by midnight Saturday 5th December, to be in the chance of winning  the ENTRIE release! The WINNER will be announced Sunday 6th December.

All the new products showcased today are available HERE on the website.

We also have a Black Friday weekend SALE on AND we have some products RETIRING which are at a discounted price until all stock of the retiring items are sold.

THANK YOU so much for stopping by today & joining in on all the fun. I hope that you all have a wonderful festive season.
