Uniko Sponsors “Less is More”

Uniko Sponsors “Less is More”

Hello & Happy Weekend!

I am here bright and early this morning to tell you that Uniko is super happy and proud to be sponsoring “Less is More” again.


As you can see, this week the theme is ‘friendship’ and for my Guest Designer card I thought I would dust off Reach For The Stars and Background Builders: Seeing Stars


I recently had a little Stampin’ Up! splurge as I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some of the new and returning colours! One of the colours I couldn’t wait to use was Grey Granite, those who know me, know that I LOVE grey. I think love might be an understatement, lets say obsessed!

Just yesterday I was talking to my husband about painting some rooms in the house and I said I had picked up some paint chips on the way past the DIY store. He knew before he even looked that the majority would be shades of grey – LOL! I love it as a base colour to accessorise with other colours, like I have with my card today…


I was super happy to see that Altenew Silver Stone ink is a really good match to the Grey Granite card, which I used to stamp my sentiment. The star in the middle from Background Builders: Seeing Stars is stamped in a slightly darker shade, Altenew Industrial Diamond ink. I then used my Prismacolor Pencils in Light & Dark Aquamarine to colour it. The 2 smaller stars are stamped in Altenew Aqualicious and Teal Cave. I finished the stars off with some clear Wink Of Stella too for that subtle sparkle.


The layout of my card is from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 340-001

I’ve so many friends I could send this card to, so I think I will be replicating this design with other colours & the Grey Granite!


OK, that’s all from me today, I’ll be spending time with The Beans and hubby today, before a little night out with some of my old nursing friends, celebrating ones retirement. It’ll be nice to catch up with them 🙂

Anyway, be sure to head on over to the “Less is More” blog here and join in on the fun.

    Stunningly CAS Bev and such a fantastic sentiment. Yes, that grey is such a lovely complementary colour to accessorise and the grey/teal combination is a real winner. A really stylish card. Thanks for being our guest designer (and for sponsoring us). xx

    Simple CAS brilliance BEV. A perfect take on our theme and I almost went for the stars too on my card but ran out of time to make another. Thanks for being a delightful guest designer at Less is More and for sponsoring this month. Hugs x

    Isn’t grey the new black(?). 😉 I can see why you love it so much. It’s a wonderful neutral that goes with many colour and here it looks fabulous with teal. Great set with the perfect sentiment for our theme. Thanks for being our guest and sponsor. x

    Gorgeous card, Bev. I too love grey although still don’t have much in my stash, that must change! Love the aqua/teal shades too, my absolute faves, and this sentiment is so true. Thanks so much for joining us as a Guestie and for once again sponsoring LIM xx
