Brand Ambassador Inspirations - Modern Mid Century Aesthetic background murals!

 Hello to all!

Happy Thursday!

Today's cards are inspired by Modern mid-century abstract designs and are perfect for man cards as well! Uniko has such a great collection!

To create my background, I used rusty hinge, aged mahogany, scorched timber and lost shadow distress inks through Mid century modern shaped stencil.
Then I inked my beautiful blooms III using versafine Onyx black and stamped according to my needs.
The dots are from the Balloon Bash stamp set and I finished it with My Life is Better sentiment.

The second card is in a neutral boho color style!

This card is created using Mid Century Modern Florals stamp set with such beautiful elements.
It looks like a wall hanging. It is in boho style neutral colors. I used rusty hinge, scorched timber, saltwater taffy distress inks along with onyx black ink.
You inspire me sentiment with some black enamel dots finished it perfectly.

Hope you are inspired by both!
Have a wonderful day!

Craft hugs!

Brand Ambassador Inspiration: Background Block MOD Builder stamp and stencil cards

 Hello friends!

Happy Monday!

Today I am showcasing the beautiful stamp and stencil from Uniko: Background Block MOD Builder!

Card 1

This Background Block MOD Builder stamp totally amazed me with its pattern block, so many possibilities. Do you agree with me!!!

I created a Masculine style card in grey tones! 

I started with a whole block from the upper side on a white panel and then the lower side using archival jet black ink. Then I filled the Neutral grey color using a Copic Marker in the whole pattern. I adhered that patterned panel to the black base card. Added another white panel with a sentiment I Miss You from the Just Because stamp set. Simply finished it off with some black pearls.

Card 2

The next card showcases the Background Block Mod Builder stencil with the same pattern in multicolored spring gardening. I used only the centre part of the stencil.

The repeating pattern makes it perfect. I used different Distress inks to create the pattern and cut the panel from the center. The sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set and is finished with a few white pearls in the center of the flowers.

Working with these two was so much fun!
Happy crafting!

March Non- Release Spring Botanicals Brand Ambassador Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Hello everyone!

Happy Monday!

Spring has already arrived with so many beautiful blooms! Today is a bright and sunny day here after two days of rain........ I made two cards for today's hop and making me smile out loud because I know spring is already in the air YAY!

We are giving love to the Spring Botanical series!

To make this card I used the Spring Botanicals Daffodil stamp set. Since our daffodils just started blooming this week in my park, why not use this beautiful stamp and give it some love!!

I stamped the daffodil flower in Black archival ink. I paired it with the Background Blocks splatter stamp set using DI.

Then I watercolored the flower using the distressed inks.

I stamped the sentiment using black archival ink and layered it to my metallic olive green CS.

In the end, finished it off with some black sequins. Love the watercolor look!

Card 2

I used the same set in a different style for my other card.

On a piece of white CS, I stamped the image using DI. I watercolored it with the same inks and then fussy cut it for a dimensional look. To create my background, I paired it with the Mid-Century Modern Squares stencil. The mowed lawn ink is blended on the bigger white panel and the squeezed lemonade ink is blended on the small white panel to match my daffodil flower. I love the soft look I achieved on this.

The sentiment is from the same set and I finished it with some lemon and apple green sequins.
I had so much fun with these. Hope I inspired you!

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.

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.
