Uniko Challenge #42

Uniko Challenge #42


Welcome to the July/August 2017 Uniko challenge. I have changed the frequency and length of the challenges this year to hopefully give you a little more time to join in on the fun.

So this month we have the following challenge…

 This should be a really easy and popular theme and we’re so looking forward to seeing all your wonderful cards popping up in the gallery.

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 😉

* 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!

* Share the challenge graphic in your post and link back to the challenge if possible 😉

This month we have two Guest Designers – Cornelia the winner of Challenge #40 and Elaine the winner of Challenge #41. Both awesomely talented ladies who we are proud to have joining us for this new challenge.

Here’s Cornelia’s amazing card:

And here’s Elaine’s superb card:

 So gorgeous! You’ll be wanting to pop over to her blog HERE to leave her some love too.

This is what I came up with…

I’d not used Beautiful Blooms II for a while, so I decided to ink the flowers & leaves up from that set, using some summery Altenew ink colours. I used all three of the flowers contained in the set for my little bouquet. When I had stamped & fussy cut the flowers and laid them onto my card I decided they needed a little ‘backdrop’ to sit against. So I reached for the recently restocked and popular Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe, using it as a vertical stripe instead across my landscape card. The sentiment is from Happy Succulents (also NOW back in stock) and I added more interest by stamping the ‘birthday’ part on a small strip of white card and adhering with foam adhesive. A trio of Stampin’ Up! enamel dots finished it off nicely!
