Bokeh Balloon Birthday...Uniko Studio 7th Birthday Linky Party




Hello,

CELEBRATION TIME! This month, Uniko Studio turns SEVEN, which means: PARTY TIME! Bev has decided to carry on the lovely tradition of the previous two Birthday Linky Parties, by hosting another. Details are here.

Today, the team is sharing a plethora of birthday-themed cards, showcasing a variety of Uniko products. Me? Bokeh Balloons!

Kristina Werner has started a series of distress oxide ink blends, so I had to give one of her combinations a whirl - Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar. Sooo pretty! I used Unicorn pigment ink and three stencils to create my balloons: Balloon Bash, Scattered Polka Dots, Seeing Stars.  Sentiment is from a great oldie: All Occasions Sentiments 2.


Joining in is easy: create a birthday card - any theme, any style, any product - and link it up via the linky on the Uniko blog. No blog? No worries: you can link your card from your Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest or, as with  ALL Uniko Challenges, you can email your entry to Bev.

While using Uniko products is optional, we'd LOVE to see you using your Uniko stash (including Uniko Digital Freebies). Extra prize opportunity if you do.

Speaking of prizes, here's what our sweet Bev is offering: 
  • Main Winner Chosen By the DT - £35 eGift Certificate
  • Random Uniko Stamps Winner - In Stock Clear Stamp Set of Winners Choosing (any value)
  • Top 4 Chosen By DT - In Stock £10 Clear Stamp Set of Winners Choosing
  • Randomly Selected comment from the Design Team Hop In Stock £5 Clear Stamp Set of Winners Choosing

A total of SEVEN chances to win! 

Be sure to visit the team to see their birthday-themed cards, then par-tay along with us.  The link up will close at 23:59 Thursday 28th February 2019.  ALL Release Winners will be announced  Friday 1st March 2019.

Looking forward to seeing you in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

WOW ! This is brilliant Carol ! Love your dreamy blended background that beautifully highlights your stencilled balloons. I don't know why but I'm not yet comfortable with DO inks and I always go back to the normal Distress inks. But I love them when I see the other persons' cards. And this big sentiment is fabulous, this is one I don't have yet in my stash. Have a great week ! Hugs x

Linda said...
