November 2017 Uniko Design Team Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello,

Hope your weekend is off to a good start and we - Bev, my design teammates and I - over at Uniko Studio, are aiming to make it even better!  Welcome to the November 2017 Uniko Design Team Blog Hop and Giveaway!

In October, lovely Bev released four new items (seen below) and we've come together showcase them.  My post is photo heavy - I'll keep chatting to a minimum (okay, I'll try...), but I suggest a cup of something to keep you awake, because once you're done here, you have some hopping to do!

New Uniko Studio Products
 
 


Okay...show rolling!

First...a set of kraft and glitter paper Snowflake magnets/ornaments, with a Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Typed Tokens as centers.  The four with magnets are attached to an Ikea shelving unit in our kitchen; the 'ornaments' are on one of my gi-normous pine cones (I collect pine cones...long story)...


A few close-ups....

 

 


I'll definitely be making more of these!

Next, I used the die that corresponds with Flower Power #1 to create two poinsettia cards. Also featured are the Scattered Polka Dots (in Delicata Gold), leaves from Winter Foliage and sentiment - on the right - from Rustic Wreath.

 

A couple challenges popped up while I was prepping for this hop, so I brought out the snowflake dies once again; they were quite ready to play along! For Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Snow White, a glitter paper/white paper snowflake on the stage...


and for Merry Monday Challenge #264~Kraft And Red, this:


Whew!  Thanks for spending time with me! 

Sending you on your merry way to visit my awesome Design Team who will take your breath away with their impressive creativity. Do leave comments (details here) to be in the running for prizes. Fabulous prizes!


Carol (me)

Thank you for dropping by!

I have snowflake dies. And stamps. Several of each in several sizes. I thought I was done...until I saw these Uniko beauties you've created. I can hear them calling my name, I swear! Those kraft and white snowflakes you've made are incredible! I'm nearly speechless. Love the sweet little poinsettia card with it's bright colors and the sweet background, too. And your snowflake card...oh goodness, it's stunning. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Chat soon. Bev

I absolutely adore those snowflake hanging decorations and they’re my Christmas colours this year so I’ll be borrowing that idea. Then using Flower Power #1as a poinsettia is a perfect idea. Wonderful showcase Carol.

WOW! You have been a busy elf! Absolutely loving your kraft and white snowflake decorations, the added sentiment tokens are the perfect fit for them too. You cards are beautifully layered and composed and your poinsettia, holly leaf is genius and the scattered polka dots the perfect backdrop. An absolute delight to cheer my weekend and a fabulous showcase of Uniko. Blessed to have you as part of the team. Hugs Bev x

Those sweet florals are so fresh and lovely, Carol ... though I have to admit to having been completely taken with the snowflakes ... of every flavour! From the rustic shimmery tags ... to the rich red and kraft ... to that oh so glorious white on white ... just wonderful! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday! Hugs, Anita :)

Oh Carol, your snowflake ornaments and cards are fantastic! Absolutely love the kraft and glitter paper combo!

I'm only a week late in commenting. Your snowflakes are wonderful, Carol. I love those tokens you put in the center. They're so versatile too as shown by your two cards. The all white one is so elegant.

Marianne said...

Gorgeous projects. Those tokens are a perfect match for your pretty snowflakes. Also love the colour combo of your last card.
