Uniko Challenge #49 – Wonderful World with Optional Twist THANKS

Hey!

The current Uniko Challenge is in full swing and today The Design Team and Guest Designer are here to remind you that there is still time to join in on the fun.

We have another fun and easy challenge at the moment and we hope the Wonderful World around us will inspire you to play along. If you’d like even more of a challenge then please twist with us and create a card to say THANKS.

Challenge Guidelines:

* You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products. Plus, there is an extra chance to win a prize if you do ūüėČ

* Email entries welcome, just email a photo of your card to bev@uniko.co.uk and I will add it to the Uniko Flickr gallery and link up!

We have the very talented Hannelie joining us again as our Guest Designer for this challenge. Her card is an absolute delight and so very creative. It’s sure to inspire you to play along.

And here’s what I made a while back but never shared…

I made this for the last Uniko Stamping Retreat back in the Summer. The technique station was all about playing with Brusho’s and I created this fun background using the Natures Treasures II Mask.

I’d normal avoid all this messy, as I like clean and simple! However, sometimes messy can be kept clean & simple by not adding too much fuss and layers to a design. I have done this by letting the leaves & ink take the limelight and just added a simple sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.

That’s all I have to inspire you, but some of The Design Team have more inspiration to share with you…

 Now, if you need more incentive to play along with the challenge here are the details of the prizes.

Introducing… Simply Said Blocks II and Natures Treasures II Stencil & Mask

Hey!

Welcome to the first day of the May 2018 Release product introductions. This is the fun part, you now get to see all the sneak peeks in action. The Design Team and our Guest Designer for May Anna have worked their socks off and created an abundance of inspiration to share with you over the coming days :)

Today we are introducing 2 products. Simply Said Blocks II a mini clear stamp set with additional popular sentiments in the same style as Simply Said Blocks. And we are ‘officially’ introducing Natures Treasures II Stencil. This stencil was part of the Uniko Stamping Retreat goody bag in Dec 2017. It has proven popular with those that attended, myself and some of the DT, that it was time it was made available to everyone :)

Hopefully you have hopped on by from our lovely Guest¬†Designer, Anna’s blog HERE.

How about a bit more inspiration?! I’ve a couple of cards to share using a combination of the Natures Treasures II Stencil and sentiments from Simply Said Blocks II and a sneak peek of some others from another clear stamp set we will be introducing next week ūüėČ

IntroNT2stencil2

I thought I’d start off with a super CAS card and a bit of partial fussy cutting! For this card I began with a 10.5 x 12 cm piece of white card. I stamped the sentiment from a clear stamp set we are introducing in a couple of days called Just Because first, so that I could then position and ink the leaf.

IntroNTstencil2a

I used a trio of Distress Oxides to do this, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry. I then drew a soft pencil line where I wanted to cut straight and then went ahead and fussy cut it out. This panel is then adhered to my base card using 1mm thick foam adhesive.

For my next card I channeled my inner Laura Bassen, to create this rainbow card.

IntroNT2stencil3

Again I used Distress Oxides and simply worked across from Picked Raspberry down to Wilted Violet. The sentiment is a combination from Simply Said Blocks II and Just Because.

That’s all I have to share with you for today, but there is LOADS more inspiration from my awesome Design Team. Be sure to hop along and leave some love along the way :)

Hugs

#70

I decided to combine my Guest Designer card with my Stamp Of The Week card. This week I have decided to dust off¬†Natures Treasures II¬†as this weeks SOTW…

NaturesTreasuresIIPP copy

I was going to be creative and dust off my sewing machine to add some stitching, but time got the better of me and my machine is buried under a pile of half started sewing projects ūüėČ

So instead I decided to opt for the faux stitching effect…

2016SOTW80

I used one of my favourite Mama Elephant edging dies to cut a white scalloped strip that has a faux stitch effect.

2016SOTW80a

I adhered the strip near to the bottom of my card before stamping the leaves, flowers and swirls. All the supplies I have used are listed below, be sure to pop on over HERE to see what the AAA Cards Design Team have made to inspire you and for all the challenge details. I hope to see you in the gallery!

Stamp Of The Week – Natures Treasures II

Hey!

This week I have decided to dust off¬†Natures Treasures II¬†as this weeks SOTW…

NaturesTreasuresIIPP copy

I’m still enjoying this weeks Stamp Of The Week and I feel I may not have enough days in the week to share all the ideas I have using it! I’ll have to save them for another time ūüėČ

Anyway, here is todays card…

2016SOTW79

Today I decided to go for some classic paper piecing and use some of my stash of patterned papers. I opted for a non traditional leaf colour scheme of Hawaiian Shores and Raspberry Fizz polka dot paper from Papertrey Ink.

2016SOTW79a

I simply stamped the largest outline leaf onto white CS twice and fussy cut them out. I then stamped the same leaf onto both scraps of polka dot paper and just cut the inner leaves out. These where then adhered to the white stamped and cut leaves using my two way glue pen. A simple bakers twin bow and sentiment from Simply Said finished the card off.

All the supplies I have used are listed below AND before I go I have a LIMITED time only SALE!

Before I get to my project be sure to check out the Design Team inspiration HERE and also link up your creations.

This is how I was inspired to use metallics…

USC#31

I’ve been wanting to pair the recently release Fun Flowers with Natures Treasures II and so that’s what I did on my card today! I decided to use heat embossing and gold embossing powder as my metallic element.

USC#31a

I also added some SU! metallic gold washi tape, something I rarely add to my projects. I created the stamped section by masking off the bottom half of my project, stamping and shaking on embossing powder as I went. This was so I knew where my images were to stamp the next and also so I only heat set it one time.

I added a sentiment from Simply Said Birthday, which will be back in stock in the next week or so along with some metallic nail heads.

Now, if you need more incentive to play along with the challenge here are the details of the prizes.
