Uniko November Revisit Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog today where I'm sharing some projects made with Uniko stamp sets that are part of the November Revisit and Blog Hop.

Here's all the products in the revisit:



First up is something very different for me - an exploding box of flowers.

It seemed the perfect idea to utilise those new Flower Power dies and is my first ever attempt at this technique. I also put the polka dot stencil through its paces, first with pink ink and then moving it slightly and heat embossing with silver.

Stamps: Uniko, Flower Power #1, #2, #5
Inks: Ranger Distress, picked raspberry, wilted violet; SU, wild wasabi; Mememnto, tuxedo black; Versamark clear + Ranger Superfine silver embossing powder
Dies: Uniko, Flower Power #1, #2, #5; Lil'inker, stitched mats rectamgles
Stencil: Uniko, Scattered Polka Dots

Next I made a present decoration using the snowflake dies with some blue holographic and white glitter card.

I attached the smaller snowflakes using some wire which I twisted round my pick up tool to get the coils.

Dies: Uniko Designer Dies, Snowflake Trio
Other: Holograpic card, glitter card, doily & wire from my stash

And finally - just in case you're thinking I've forgotten I'm a CAS girl - I made a simple little card using the wonky stripes stencil paired up with one of those Flower Power dies.

How easy are those Flower Power dies to use? Well I'm pretty rubbish at lining dies up, but because Bev has had them produced as an outline die, even I managed to position them successfully!

Stamps: Uniko, Flower Power #1 & #3
Inks: Ranger Distress Oxide, peacock feathers, twisted citron; Memento, tuxedo black, rose bud, pear tart
Die: Uniko, Flower Power #1 & #3; MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles
Stencil: Uniko, Wonky Stripes

Well that's my shares finished for today.  And here's the blog hop order so that you can get on with your quest to try to win all four of the fabulous Uniko products featured in November's Revisit.

Jane  - that's me
