UNIKO STUDIO December 2018 New Release: Release Day, Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hello,

As you've likely noticed, our sweet, talented and obviously energetic Bev has managed to squeeze in another release to close 2081.  She's been sharing sneak peeks and gorgeous introductions to the four new stamp sets and 2 new stencils over the past few days (In the Forest and Let It Snow stencils here; Wonderful Day here; Snowflake Serenade here; Pure Florals: Peony here).

Today, the rest of the team is joining her for the UNIKO STUDIO December 2018 New Release: Release Day, Blog Hop and Giveaway!  The release will be available today (December 11, 2018) at 9:00pm GMT.

First, a view of the new products....
 

 
 

Lovely, right? Right!

My cards feature all the newcomers (except for Wonderful Day, only because I'm (still) in 'dire' need of Christmas cards and I got caught up with the stencils *grin*) . Since this is photo-heavy, I'll let the photos do most of the talking...

In the Forest stencil, inked once with Tea Dye ink then the stencil slightly shifted and re-inked with Tattered Rose. This may be a new favourite combination. Added a die cut deer from my collection and a sentiment from Peace on Earth.

In the Forest stencil, embossed with white embossing powder, snowflake using Designer Dies Snowflake Trio. and a sentiment from Peace on Earth.

Snowflake Serenade, with sequins from Studio Katia

Let It Snow stencil, inked with Evergreen Bough distress ink; deer and sentiment from stash.

Back to the Tea Dye and Tattered Rose distress inks for this Let it Snow stencil; wooden snowflake from stash; sentiment from Peace on Earth

 One more wintry wonderland, using Nuvo Moonstone shimmer paste, mixed 
with just a 'hint' of evergreen bough.

Shifting from winter to spring/summer with a quartet Pure Florals: Peony. Used my zigs ('relatively' cooperative) so sure hope I've done this pretty set justice!





That's all from me...sending you on your merry way to hop, hop, hop, then shop, shop, shop!! 


It's the Season of Giving and Bev is being wonderfully generous (as she always is): leaving comments along the hop puts you in the running to win the ENTIRE Release!! Head over to the Uniko Studio blog for details.

Enjoy!

Thank you for dropping by!
