Uniko’s 7th Birthday Linky Party!

Uniko’s 7th Birthday Linky Party!


It’s time for some celebrating! This month at Uniko we are celebrating our 7th Birthday and I am kicking the celebrations off today with a party!

It wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without a PARTY, right?

Now, the party starts over HERE and you can find LOTS of inspiration from my awesome team, the link up to add your entry AND of course all the prize info. There are SEVEN ways to win 😉

All you have to do is create a birthday card and add it to the linky! You don’t have to have a blog to enter, you can link your card from your Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest or like with ALL Uniko Challenges you can email me your entry to add.

You don’t have to use Uniko products, but I’d LOVE to see you using your Uniko stash (including Uniko Digital Freebies) AND there is an extra opportunity to win a prize if you do 😉

Okay, enough chit chat, how about some inspiration…


I dusted off a couple of sets for this card, Background Builders: Seeing Stars and Balloon Bash. I used my MISTI tool to stamp both the diagonal ombre star stripes and the ombre balloon. I drew the ballon string with a fine liner as I wanted a nice crisp string! The sentiment is from Simply Said.


The layout of my card was is from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge seen HERE and below. This is one of my favourite challenges to join in on when I can 🙂

Next I wanted to try out a new glimmer paste that arrived in the post, Nuvo Glimmer Paste – Moonstone. My goodness, this stuff is lush! Just look at the shine…


This time as I wanted to use the paste through a Uniko Stencil I used the Balloon Bash stencil. I started out with the round pink balloon and used Altenew Cherry Blossom collection inks to achieve the ombre effect.


I then masked off the pink balloon to layer the larger balloon behind inked up in Altenew Sweet Dreams collection. I then went back and placed the stencil over the smaller round balloon to

FMS Final 373-001apply the glimmer paste. Now, usually I struggle with applying pastes on a large surface, but this stuff… this stuff glides on beautifully!


This time I was inspired to join in on another favourite challenge, AAA Cards HERE and seen below. For this challenge they want you to use a third of your card (so leaving a third of your card with white space) & an optional twist of masking.#132

That’s all I have to share with you today, thanks for stopping by and joining in on the fun!
