Wednesday 13th December - Introducing... New Uniko Stencils

Hello,

Still have your pen next to your Santa list? Good...because lovely Bev, my fabulous team and I have a whole lot of delights for Day 2 of the  Uniko December 2017 New Release. Today's introductions are a trio of stencils, all of which are sure to add a little extra 'something, something' to your cards.

As you may know, I'm a CAS card-maker (most of the time), who loves stencils. I don't do very much 'fancy pants' with them, because I so enjoy leaving them to sing on their own. That approach is precisely what I did here, with my focus on the Broken Lines stencil (Doodled Flower stencil cards will appear late in the week...we're still having fun playing!).  It's pretty obvious I'm still in Christmas card making mode, too *grin*

For my first card, I masked off a few of the 'broken' lines to create hangers for my pretty snowflakes (Stunning Snowflakes) framing the sentiment (Festive Sentiments).


The stencil is full on visible in my second card, in its background role for my Christmas-themed coffee card (I Love CoffeeFestive Sentiments, Flower Power #1Designer Dies Flower Power #1 - 6 collection, Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions).


This one is heading off to the 2017 Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop (the days are passing too quickly...need to guzzle drink more coffee to create more coffee cards!).

Two more days of intros to come, before the BIG release and giveaway; details are at  the Uniko blog HERE. You'll also find links and peeks at the gorgeous stencil feature cards from the rest of the team. Do visit their places; not only will you be dazzled by their designs, but prizes are part of the mix, too!


Thank you for dropping by!  Hope to see you on Thursday...and Friday...and Saturday (the BIG event)...

You must be in heaven with the lovely new stencils to use, Carol. Using the lines as hangers for your snowflakes was a brilliant idea.
