UNIKO STUDIO Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Hello,

Welcome to a new Uniko Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY. Between releases, Bev and the team take 'second looks' at a previously released product and give it some more TLC.  This month, however, selecting 'just one' product was posing too challenging (which makes sense, given alllll those amazing stamps, dies and stencils to choose from!), so we randomly selected a stamp 'family' and paired it with a sentiment 'family.'

Here's what we wound up with...and I'm sure you'll agree, they're a fabulous 'pairing'...

 

Sooo...with inspiration coming from the image at The Card Concept Challenge #5~Colourful Basics

I started with a rainbow of Stencil Scattered Polka Dots, (using only three inks: Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Mermaid Lagoon) and paired it with speech bubbles (to reflect the lamp shades from the photo) from another sentiment set: Simply Said.  Clean, simple and just a wee bit layered: my favourite kind of card to make!


Then, because I had everything out, I decided to create some little notes for my sister-in-law to tuck into my niece and nephew's lunch boxes...


Here's the whole gang; I think I used a 'something' from every set we're showcasing...



These clear stamp sets and stencils are 'essentials' to anyone's collection, whether you're a clean and simple stamper/inker or a mixed media enthusiast. 

For truly amazing inspiration, check out how Bev and my fabulous design team were inspired. Commenting along the hop puts you in the running for a chance to win a Uniko £20 eGift Certificate. You have until midnight BST Saturday 22nd Sept 2018 to comment.

Thank you for dropping by!
