Uniko 12th Birthday Linky Party Brand Ambassador Blog Hop

 Hello to all!

Happy Sunday! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

This month is all about celebrating 12 years 🎉 of Uniko! Congratulations Bev!!!

 Create a birthday card using Uniko products and share it at the Uniko Birthday Linky party!

Today I created something different from my usual style to celebrate Uniko's 12th Birthday Blog Hop!

I created a card by adding foil using a stencil without any lamination. The result is pretty good........ beautiful and easy!

I took a textured white CS first.

 I took a quilted stencil, applied foil magic mixed media paste and let it dry slightly. When it settled I placed a piece of red foil on this stenciled background and ran it through my sizzix machine for the well-designed image.

The foil shines when the light hits on it!

I used some of the accents from the Mid-Century Modern Florals stamp set and created a design. The sentiment is from the Mid-Century Modern Frames set. I added a red-glittered CS layer before adhering that white panel to my card base.
There is plenty of time to join. The deadline for submission is midnight (GMT) on Thursday 29th February 2024.

The prize is £25 eG.C. Kindly use Uniko products only with 3 Maximum entries per person.

That's all for today!
Happy crafting!

Brand Ambassador Birthday Inspiration Cards!


Hello everyone!

Happy Friday!

I am on Uniko Blog today! We are celebrating Uniko's 12th Birthday this month! Bev has so many surprises this month with some new releases, blog hops, and giveaways as well! 

I made two Birthday cards with CAS styles to celebrate this fab Birthday month!!

I have used the Background blocks Mid-Century Modern II design on a grey panel. I love this background block, it is so cool!

This is a great retro design for creating a card in one go. I heat-embossed the design using Wow Primary Ebony EP. I colored the semi-circle blocks using my Chameleon pens. Adhered that panel to another black panel on a grey card base.
The birthday sentiment completes the design from the Up & away stamp set.

Now my other card has some shimmery touch in pastel colors.

The white pearl embossing powder looks so well on this textured white paper. Again colored the semi-circle blocks using Chameleon pens. Adhered the white panel to shimmery peach CS and again on a textured white card base. The sentiment is from the Mid-Century Modern Frames set.

Simple card but perfect for celebrations! I hope you feel inspired to make some Birthday cards.

BA inspirations cards: Love

 Hello everyone!

Happy Monday!

Today I am on the Uniko blog with two projects to share using some goodies from UNIKO! I had fun playing around with them. As you all know Valentine's Day is approaching soon.

First up I got all rainbow inky stripes paired with Love!

The Big & Bold love stamp set features a beautiful bold Love word accompanied by some accent images and sentiments and I paired it with Background Blocks Horizontal stripes and Pinstripes stamp set.

These rainbow theme stripes match and show off the fun striped heart image.

Firstly I inked my horizontal stripe image using some newly radiant neon inks set of 4 and I love the result. Then I purposefully stamped the pinstripe look on these stripes. I inked my striped heart and fussy cut it. Then I stamped bold love sentiment along with accompanying sentiment All my. 

For the next card, I combined Decorative doilies digital paper with scattered heart images in a soft radiant neon color.

Firstly I used all 3 sizes of the smaller hearts from the same set. I colored the largest small heart using my blue ZIG watercolour brush pen.
I created a pocket using the decorative doilies paper print. The love sentiment is hand-cut using berry wine pigment ink accompanied by always sentiment. I popped up the pocket above the scattered hearts. I also added some iridescent hearts for more interest.
That's just where my creativity flows! Hope, I inspired you to make some Valentine's cards for your loved ones!

Happy crafting!

Beautiful Blooms I : stamp and dies non release blog hop

 Hello everyone!

Happy Thursday!

This year we are giving some love to older Uniko products with a giveaway and Brand Ambassador Blog hop as you all know I love all Uniko products so much!!

I have some fun cards to share for revisiting blog hop showcasing Beautiful Blooms I stamp and die set from Uniko! I am using this set first time and falling in love with it!!

Let's get started!

First card

I love these beautiful blooms I set, so versatile. I used my favourite Designer paper Collection from Uniko. 
Using the Floating Strips technique I created a window sheet circle first. I cut the strips of designer paper according to my needs and adhered it to my window die-cut circle, so easy and quick, possibilities are endless! 

Stamped the images on a white textured CS using Altenew Cherry Blossom ink set and Green Meadows set. Made a window sheet circle as shown in the above pic. It's fun, fast and easy, and will give the card a WOW factor!

The sentiment is from the Spring Botanical Crocus stamp set along with some tiny liquid pearl dots.

Second card

I just love this solid flower stamp image with leaves.  I started with stamping the background blocks linear image using walnut stain DO. Stamped one of the floral images and leaves using carved pumpkin, rustic wilderness, crushed olive DO and die-cut them using coordinating dies.  I layered up the floral image along with leaves. It helped the card so quick and simply added so much detail! I finished the card with a "because you are amazing" sentiment from the Just Because stamp set and some tiny liquid pearl dots.

Leave a comment on all the Ambassadors' blogs before Midnight GMT on Thursday 25th Jan'24 and one lucky winner will receive a £15 eGift Code to spend in the store!
