I’ve a little card to share today, which happens to be perfect for Darnell’s NBUS #8 Challenge HERE. The lovely Darnell is celebrating 46 years of marriage AND 5 years of blogging, congratulations Darnell!

So to celebrate these momentous occasions Darnell has a trio of NBUS Challenges, each with a different optional theme. This week is Colouring on Kraft…

Though technically I haven’t coloured on Kraft card stock, I have used Papertrey Ink Soft Stone instead. I have used my Prismacolor pencils to colour in the image stamped on the rectangle die cut using my NBUS Rectangle dies from Crafters Companion.

The layout of my card was inspired by the current TIME OUT Challenges challenge HERE, which is to CASE with your own twist the lovely Ksenija from Sweet Kobylkin. Below is Ksenija’s card to CASE…

Hopefully you will see that I reversed the card stock colours that Ksenija used on her card and instead of stamping an all over pattern on the base card I decided to use my MISTI and do this spotlight stamping technique.

I added a sentiment from Simply Said and a few tiny rhinestones to finish the card off. And, I actually got round to sending this card out too, something I am ‘trying’ much harder to do this year and mail out more of the cards I make 😉

That’s all I have to share with you today, I am hoping to find a little creative time tonight and maybe squeeze in another card for the challenge. I have plenty of NBUS to use 😉

Thanks for stopping by & BIG thanks to Darnell for hosting such an awesome challenge.



Supplies: Uniko Originally Organic & Simply Said Clear Stamps, Stampin’ Up! Whisper White CS, Papertrey Ink Soft Stone CS, Prismacolor Pencils, Foam Adhesive, MISTI Stamping Tool, Crafters Companion Rectangle Dies and Rhinestones.

Stamp Of The Week – Background Builders: Vines


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


Sorry for the long absence in blogging, I have still been suffering from illnesses and consequently I have had a lack of mojo this past week 🙁

Anyway, it’s Monday and with a new week comes new motivation to kick this bugs behind and find my creative energy! So with that, this evening I ‘made’ myself sit down and create a card using this weeks SOTW. This was and still is a favourite of mine and it was nice to dust it off and give it some new inky love…


For todays card I decided to pair a few of the flowers from the set with a NBUS SU! stamp set I got last month from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. As I have used some NBUS on my card it is perfect to enter into the lovely Darnell’s current NBUS Challenge HERE.

As usual I also turned to a couple of my other favourite challenges to spark my creativity! First up the layout of my card is based on the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below.


As you can see I used a little artistic license for the sketch, I added the bakers twine bow below the panel instead of on the panel like the sketch shows as it worked better for my card with the large sentiment.

2016SOTW36aAnd for the colours of my card I used the current (soon to be ending) Color Throwdown challenge colours seen HERE and below.


That’s all from me today using this set, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Don’t forget that this set is discounted in store HERE this week too.

Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today.
