Uniko Challenge #26 - Geometric

Friday, October 16, 2015

Hi there! It's time for the next challenge over at Uniko!


with an optional twist of CIRCLES OR SQUARES

You can use any stamps/products to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko goodies and if you do there is an extra chance to win a prize! Also, you can do a card in any style, it doesn't have to be CAS.

This time we have 2 lovely and awesomely talented Guest Designers joining us, be sure to stop on by their blogs and have a look around at their creations. You won't be disappointed!


Now, on to the really fun part! Here is my card for this challenge.

Now, this challenge is totally ME! I love the clean lines and simplicity of geometric shapes. I used several Background Builder sets on this card (see full supply list below). First, I die-cut a stitched border panel with white cardstock. I drew a vertical and horizontal guideline for the 4 sections. Then, doing one section at a time, I masked it off, stamped a pattern with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with white EP. Once it was all embossed, I masked off a section at a time and ink blended using Distress Inks. I LOVE this card so much. It was so fun to watch the rich colors blend so smoothly onto the card stock.
The sentiment is heat embossed with white EP onto black cardstock. Both pieces are adhered using foam tape for some dimension!

What do you think?! Would you ever try a design like this?

Need a little more incentive to join in the fun? Will some prizes help?

Uniko Pure Florals Poinsettia Revisited Blog Hop!

Sunday, October 11, 2015

It's a great day to stop by because it's the Uniko October 2015 Design Team Blog Hop (and giveaway)!!

So, this month we are taking a look back at a previously released product, dusting it off and giving it some love! Here is an image of the whole stamp set, Pure Florals: Poinsettia.


I gold embossed the Poinsettia, the sentiment, and the small dots on the base panel. The poinsettia was embossed on a piece of watercolor paper and then colored in using distress inks and water! I absolutely loved coloring in this beautiful poinsettia! The sentiment is cut out using a Top Dog Dies die, and the striped paper is vellum with pretty gold stripes.

GIVEAWAY ALERT!! Simply comment on each blog along the hop for your chance to win the featured set or an eGift Certificate code to the same value if you already own it.
