Uniko Challenge #54 – Flowers with an optional twist of Die Cuts


Welcome to the July / August 2019 Uniko Challenge.

We’ve another lovely favourite theme of flowers for this new challenge, but if you’d like to challenge yourself a bit more then go with our twist of using die cuts.

We’re really delighted to have Amy as our Guest Designer for this challenge. Just look at this beautiful layered die cut floral. Such happy and pretty colours too. Be sure to hop on over to Amy’s blog for more details and leave a lovely comment.

This is such a wonderful time of year in the Northern Hemisphere to be inspired by the bounty of florals in the Summer gardens. I love flowers and I was excited to ink some older Uniko flowers that haven’t seen much ink recently and I also wanted to go with the ‘twist’ of the challenge too!


As you can see I chose to ink up Flower Power #2 and use the coordinating dies. This is one of my favourite flowers from the Flower Power series to cluster in colourful blooms.


I paired the flowers with leaves from Natures Treasures and also a NEW sentiment from the upcoming July 2019 Release 😉 You will see more of this sentiment on Monday on the blogs!


I’ve used Gloss White Nuvo Drops for the flower centres and I have also added White Blizzard Nuvo Drops inside the lines of the sentiment.

The Uniko DT have also been busy and have created some awesome flowery cards to inspire you to join in and play along, so be sure to pop on by their blogs.

Stamp Of The Week – Simply Said Christmas


Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (I took a little break last week due to the November Release & NEW stamps now available in the shop).

Basically each week I will be choosing a stamp set to dust off & give some inky love to. Though I am open to requests of stamp sets to revisit, so if you have a request either leave a comment or drop me an email. Along with giving the set some love, the featured set is also discounted in store for that week.

This week I am dusting off… Simply Said Christmas


 This set is a wonderful mini clear stamp set featuring popular Christmas/Holiday sentiments in trendy modern fonts. They are sized so that they can be the focal point of the card with minimal decoration or they can enhance any Christmas/Holiday image in your stamp collection, even those from other popular companies.

Today I am sharing a card which I made for the recent class at The Paperlane…


The purpose of this card was to show how the outline Christmas tree from the NEW Essentially Christmas coordinates with the Christmas trees in Background Builders: Christmas. The Merry Christmas sentiment from Simply Said Christmas was perfect to fill the gap at the bottom of the tag & to ‘ground’ the Christmas tree.


The tree is decorated with tiny outline circles (a teeny tiny stamp from the Essentially Christmas set) stamped in black ink & coloured with At You Spica pens that have a slight sparkle to them.

Short & sweet from me this afternoon, I have two posts HERE and HERE over on the Uniko Blogger blog! I’ve been a busy bee in the Uniko ‘studio’.

I will be back again tomorrow with more to share using this set combined with other Uniko stamps & possibly some old favourite stamps from other companies 😉 Don’t forget this set is discounted this week HERE in store.

Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today.
