Uniko Countdown To Christmas Blog Hop

Are you excited? Yes, today really is an opportunity to win Uniko goodies. All the DT are hosting a blog hop to celebrate the November release.

So let's get to it. Here are my sample cards to showcase this fabulous release:

I'm kicking off with a combination of two sets from the new release and one older set all in my most favourite colours and with bling and sparkle too! Yahoo!

All the stamped images have been coated with Wink of Stella, so in real life are just dazzling.

Stamps: Uniko, Jingle Bells, Labeled Christmas, Background Builders Vines Winter Additions
Inks: Memento, grape jelly, lilac posies
Pen: Sakura Gelly Roll, silver
Embellishments: glitter paper & sequins from my stash; Wink of Stella, clear 

My next card is all about what we all wish for at Christmas - a stack of presents to open!

I used gold embossing powder for the solid bows and sentiment.

Stamps: Uniko, Essentially Christmas
Inks: SU, cherry cobbler; Versamark
Embossing: Personal Impressions, mirror gold
Dies: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables 

And for my last card I inked up that I Love Coffee stamp set. I'm loving how easy it is to adapt this set to fit in with any theme, but then that's one of the many fabulous features of Uniko stamps - their wonderful versatility.

I masked off a strip on the base card before stamping the background border and then popped up the other elements with foam pads to add dimension.

Stamps: Uniko, I Love Coffee, Stunning Snowflakes
Inks: SU, early espresso, coastal cabana

OK cards shared, now the bit you're waiting for. Here's how to win the entire November release:

Simply visit & comment along the hop by midnight Saturday 5th December, to be in the chance of winning  the ENTIRE release! The WINNER will be announced Sunday 6th December.

And here's the blog hop order:

Jane (that's me)

I'm popping my last card into the challenge at ATCAS where they are celebrating their third birthday and want to see dimension.

Great fun having you visit my blog today, thank you.  And keep crafting!
