Guest Designer Inspiration with Anna Uhras

Hi Dear Uniko Friends! 

Anna here again today bringing you my last (but not least) page made for my GDT spot here at Uniko. I've had a blast playing with all the gorgeous stamps, stencils and dies Bev sent to me to create with.

Thank you so much sweet Bev <3

For this layout I've made my own background papers using the Paradise Leaves Clear Stamps.  The word "kindness" you can find in the Simply Said II Clear Stamp set. The papers in my layers under my photo are by Heidi Swapp Pineapple Crush collection and my title is also by Heidi Swapp  but from my hoarded stash :)





I fussy cut some of the leafs and mounted them with 3d tape to get some dimension. Lastly, I finished my page off with some stitches my by sewing machine and some dots of Nuvo Jewel Drops. I do really love these leafs, they are absolutely gorgeous.








I hope that you have got some new ideas and some inspiration from my creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by here today! See you out in the scrappy world​ <3

Take care! Hugs Anna xo

May 2018 Release In Review Day 4

Hey!

Welcome to the May Release in Review Day 4.

Yep! I'm behind schedule again :( Good job I have a wonderful Design Team who continue to post and inspire :)

Anyway, as a couple of the Design Team didn't receive their goodies in time for the countdown and release day festivities, I thought it would be nice to have them be in the limelight and have a release in review week.

For day 4 they created some more inspiration using the Uniko Designer Die Collections released this month...






And here is some new inspiration using them from Carol and Rahmat. Be sure to click on their links for all the details and more inspiration on their blogs....

CAS Colours & Sketches #273 - Sketch

Hey!

Welcome back to another FUN CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. This month Cathy is our hostess and has this wonderful sketch HERE to inspire your clean and simple card making this week...




So many possibilities with this fun sketch, but here is how I decided to use it...




I reached for the recently released silhouette from Just Because and the Large Background French Script. I thought the sketch lent itself well to some masking and stamping for the lower rectangle and some spotlight stamping for the top focal rectangle. 




I was going to keep my colour scheme totally monochrome, but thought that might be a little too depressing for a sympathy card. So I used Altenew Dew Drops for the silhouette stamped on the upper rectangle. 

That's all from me today, I hope thatI have inspired you to join in on the challenge?! If you need a little more inspiration, pop on over HERE to see what the CC&S Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by!

May 2018 Release in Review Day 1

Hey!

Welcome to the May Release in Review Day 1 (a day late).

So I am a little late with my posts due to being ill and being a mummy taking priority. I had all good intentions to be all prepared, scheduled  have cards made, photographed and ready to go and the time (as usual) slipped away from me and illness struck this past weekend too :(

Anyway, as a couple of the Design Team didn't receive their goodies in time for the countdown and release day festivities, I thought it would be nice to have them be in the limelight and have a release in review week.

Today (Monday), we are taking a look at Just Because and Large Background French Script clear stamps.






And here is some new inspiration using them from Carol and Rahmat. Be sure to click on their links for all the details and more inspiration on their blogs....

WOW! I am so inspired by these 2 projects. I love the rainbow of colours on Carols silhouette, simply seamlessly done and perfectly CAS. With Rahmat's card I had to go for a closer look as she has transformed the silhouette image beautifully and with so much detail. 

Don't go far, as I will be sharing day 2 shortly!

Hey! Welcome to the May/June, 2018 Uniko challenge. 

This month we have a beautiful photo that we hope will inspire you to play along. Lots of ways to be inspired by the photo - the colours, the flowers, the grasses, the gorgeous vase or maybe the suitcase will give you a vacation vibe. Any way this photo talks to you is ok by us, but if you'd like an extra challenge then play along with our super simple twist of BIRTHDAY.



As you've probably noticed the Uniko DT has grown this year with the addition of four talented ladies onto our Stencil Team. So of course there's going to be even more DT inspiration to get your creativity flowing and we also have the most wonderful Guest Designer - Sue - joining in with us for this challenge.


Her winning card from the last challenge really caught our eye here at Uniko and if you go visit her blog you'll find oodles more fabulous inspiration.
