Uniko November Release & Blog Hop

Let's hear it for Uniko's November Release Blog Hop Special! Are you ready for this? Well here we go!

My first share today uses that Rustic Wreath stamp set I couldn't shut up about yesterday. And I've tried something a bit different.



I got this idea for a table setting from Card Making and Crafting magazine and a little light bulb went click in my head. I think it's rather cute and a fab way to get my crafting passion into the mix on Christmas Day.


If you've been following my Let's December Daily album preparations - here and here - you'll recognise the colour scheme. And they're going to be my 2016 table colours too.


I started by die cutting a scalloped edge to one side of the card and then stitched round three edges to make a pocket. the wreath was stamped and die cut into a doughnut and attached to the ribbon bow with jute twine - it's so fun to see it swing.


I added my initial to the centre, a sentiment at the bottom and some of the little twiggy stamps too. The whole thing was blinged up with sparkly crystals.

Just need to make the rest of the family place settings now - or I could just have a peaceful time on my own, so NOT going to happen!

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Rustic Wreath & Classic alphabet
Inks: SU, Chocolate chip, tempting turquoise; Memento pear tart
Dies: Spellbinders, labels eight & standard circles small; Die-namics, inside out stitched circle stax
Embellishments: SU ribbon, island indigo; Bling Bling gems; Creative Expressions, jute twine 

I'm keeping my post as short as possible today so you can get on with your hopping, but in fairness I had to feature the other two new release sets didn't I?

So here it is using a very modern colour scheme to match the trendy look of the triangular tree stamps.


I almost added a pop of red with the stars, but changed my mind and went with purple to keep that ultra chic alternative look.


Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Christmas Pop & Most Wonderful
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles
Embellishments: purple star gems from my stash

And now the bit you've been waiting for - a chance to win the whole November release. Simply comment here and on all the other Uniko DT blogs in the hop to be in with a chance. YAY, so easy!




Jane - that's me




Good luck my friends!
