Uniko Christmas Party

I'm so pleased you dropped by today as Uniko is hosting a Christmas Party!!


Join in the party & share your Christmas cards, tags, projects or scrapbook pages using Uniko Clear Stamps, Stencils or Designer Dies. See the Party Rules at the end of the post to be eligible to win one of the three prizes on offer.

How about an incentive to join in & some PRIZES!

First Prize £25 eGift Certificate
Second & Third Prize Winners Choice of £10 In-Stock Clear Stamp Set

And of course I've made a card too!

I used Background Blocks Nautical Stripes to create a tartan background. I stamped it in green first and then rotated the card by ninety degrees and stamped it again in red. I matted this square of tartan several times in red and white - definitely a card for hand delivery! I then stamped the greeting from Festive Sentiments Outlined and fir leaves from Winter Foliage, die cut them and added them on top.

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Winter Foliage, Background Blocks Nautical Stripes, Festive Sentiments Outlined
Inks: SU, cherry cobbler, tranquil tide; Versafine Calir, nocturne
Die: Uniko, Winter Foliage; Lawn Fawn stictched square stackables

Sketchy Boards Guest Designer

I'm delighted to be here today guesting with Sketchy Boards for their December Challenge.


I used a photo from last Christmas for this page:


I started by choosing papers in Christmas greens and placing the horizontal background strips and the vertical chevron strips. I then used photoshop to make my photograph circular and die cut it with a stitched die. I also cut the outer circular frame by using two different sized circular dies.


Once that was all stuck down I added the title and journalling strips and then got to work on the embellishments stacks. I used a PL card from my dear Australian friend Helen as the basis for the left hand stack and simply added some fishtail banners. I stamped and die cut the holly and pine twig using Uniko's Winter Foliage collection.


I finished off with some wooden embellishments and my usual trios of enamel dots.

Supplies:
Papers: Bazzil Basics, clover leaf & red; echo park, Celebrate Christmas &  Magical Adventure; Crate Paper, Sunny Days
Alphas: Christmas  a gift from a crafty friend; Simple Stories, Destinations
Stamps: Uniko, Winter Foliage
Inks: SU, old olove, ral red
Dies: Uniko, Winter Foliage, M FT Die-namics, stitched fishtail flags, stitched jumbo fishtail banner
Embellishments & stickers: MME, wood shapes & enamel dots; Paperchase, puffy hearts; Elle's Studio, puffy hearts; Washi from my stash; Topper, a gift from a PL friend

Huge thanks for looking today, I'm so appreciative of you spending some time here at my blog.

And keep crafting!

Wednesday Words

Today I've a card to share that I made for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where the theme is The Christmas Story.


Here's my card;


I used a beautiful digi stamp from LOTV and left it uncoloured except for the background. I did add lots of sparkle though using Stickles glue. I die cut an oval aperture to tuck the little scene behind and then matted it all onto a plain white card base.


The sentiment is from Uniko's Pure Florals Poinsettia.

Supplies:
Stamps: LOTV, Blessed; Uniko, Pure florals Poinsettia
Inks: Versafine Calir, nocturne
Pens: Copic, W3, W5, W7, BV23, BV25, BV29; Sakure gelly roll, white
Stickles, star dust

Thanks hugely for visiting today, I hope you'll come back again soon.

And keep crafting!
