Uniko Challenge #46 - Colours

It's time to remind you all about the challenge going on at Uniko at the moment. There's a pretty palette of Springlike colours that we'd like you to use - some or all the decision is yours!

I chose the pink, orange and yellow and the amazingly fabulous new chrysanthemum - can't tell you how much I struggle to type and spell that word - stencil to create my card:

Unlike the spelling the actual stencil is an absolute breeze to work with and my card came together in no time at all.

I finished it off by die cutting a word window, stamping the greeting and then popping the window back into its aperture.

Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said Blocks
Inks:Ranger distress oxide, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, fossilized amber; Memento, tuxedo black
Stencil: Uniko, Pure Florals, Chrysanthemum
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched rectangle word window

There is a whole load of other amazing inspiration over on the Uniko blog - HERE. And some fabulous prizes up for grabs. So what are you waiting for? Go get crafting, after all the only way to win is to take part!

I'm popping this card into the challenge at Calling All Sistahs  - thanks to DT Sandie for the heads up about this challenge.

Thank so much for your time today, I really appreciate that you spent some of it looking at my blog.

And keep crafting!

  5. Whew, glad I'm not the only one who finds spelling *chrysanthemum* a challenge (which is why I just copied-and-pasted it from your post *grin*). Your card: only STUNNING! Love the spring colours...

  6. Oh I am so glad you did enter Calling All Sistahs with this. Your blending is stunning. I love how the colour so gradually changes and a wonderful CAS design-you know I love this! Also I like the way you are using these tiny stitched frames for the sentiments. They really make the sentiment pop. Thanks for joining Calling All Siathas. A new challenge starts the 18th of each month-add it to your list!!

  7. A stunning CAS card with this gorgeous chrysanthemum ( I already struggle with this word in french so you can imagine in English ! Hopefully there is the Copy/Paste option !). Your blending is just stunning and the colours are so warm. Just amazing ! Hugs x

  8. Oh My Word....I am in love with this card. Love how you framed the sentiment. Thanks for playing with us at Calling All Sistahs. Hugs, :)
