Saturday 16th December Release Day - Design Team Blog Hop and showcase of the freebie 'So Much'

Hello,

*** Alert:  photo heavy!***
The Uniko team and I have been teasing you all week with sneak peeks as a lead up to today: the BIG Reveal, Release and GIVEAWAY of this month's new stamp sets from Uniko.  I'm thrilled that you're back for this wrap-up bout of showcases that, hopefully, will have you dashing to the shop HERE to place your order (or maybe let Santa know what's caught your eye...).

Without further ado...let's scroll along. 
First card features Spring Botanicals Snowdrop and Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts. No sentiment...yet...

Next, the Doodle Flower stencil paired with a sentiment from Spring Botanicals Snowdrop.



My pair of two-from-one cards, featuring Doodle Flower stencil (I coloured the hearts with a Tombow Marker...) and sentiments from the December Release FREEBIE "So Much". Yes, you read that right: FREEBIE (with qualifying orders...)




How about a little embossing and ink blending? Pure Florals: Rose here (Happy is from my stash and I'll decide Happy *what* down the road...)



Some prismacolour pencil colouring for this simple card, featuring that lovely FREEBIE previously mentioned...


Finally, something you see me do rarely: a water-colour showcase of the Pure Florals: Rose. First time I 'kind of' achieved something that looks okay-ish.  No sentiment outside...maybe I'll just pass it along to mom to put on the mantle (provided she likes it...).



Whew...thank you for bearing with me on this long journey!

Sending you off to participate in the Design Team Blog Hop.  Be sure to comment as you visit for your chance to win the ENTIRE December 2017 Release!! Details are HERE.  Oh, and as an extra perk, Bev has a Release Day Bundle OfferCHECK HERE (a fabulous deal!!).

Bobby said...

I'm thinking you may have made these a while ago and had them waiting in the wings for the release, Carol. If not it's no wonder you were sweating getting everything done with spending time on these beauties. The snowdrop shaker is breathtaking and the ink blended rose is gorgeous. Again you've shown your prowess with stencils. I can't say how much I love everything you've done here. Including the watercoloring which your Mom will adore.
