Uniko Studio Design Team Inspiration...Challenging with a Black/White/Green Palette, Butterflies and Designer Paper


Welcome to my Uniko Studio DT showcase, where I bring out a few Uniko favourites for a play date.  

I'm sure we've all had the 'lost mojo' experience and seek various ways to end the start-something/give up cycle. When this happens to me, I 'challenge myself a challenge' - creativity re-boot, as it were - which is precisely what I've done with the trio of cards I'm sharing here.

My challenge: 

  • focus on one key die/stamp combination: English Country Garden Butterfly Collection
  • use a limited palette: black/white + green (inspired by the image at TIME OUT Challenge #144, which you can see here)
  • use one 6 x 6 sheet of designer paper (sometimes we need to use that stash *grin*). I selected a various shades of green sheet from Pinkfresh Studio
  • one occasion: Thanks (sparked by our upcoming Canadian Thanksgiving, but shifting from fall colours/images)
  • three cards, inspired by at least two/three challenges (TIME OUT Challenge #144, Freshly Made Sketches #403, CAS(E) this Sketch #340). I've missed entering in a couple, but that's okay...it's the 'doing' that counts! 
  • go CAS! 

So...here are my results:

Card 1: 
Sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments
Inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #340);

 Card 2: 
Sentiment from Simply Said

Card 3:
Large butterfly die only from English Country Garden Butterfly Collection
Sentiment from Simply Said
Background from Tropical Paradise
Inspired by: me *grin*

I'd love to know how you re-boot your creativity!

Thank you for dropping by!

Pretty cards, Carol. You had me at butterfly! Sounds like you have a rock solid plan for overcoming lost mojo! Look at how you showed it here! I find scoping out inspiration usually helps me regain my spark. I hope you have an awesome week!

Beautiful carol!

So glad that method works for you, Carol, which is apparent in the wonderful cards. For me it's sleep. When I awake in the early morning hours ideas just pop into my head.

This strategy certainly worked for you, judging by this trio of beautiful cards!
