Uniko October Release - Introducing Scandinavian Christmas & Christmas Folk Snowflake Stencils & Simply Said Blocks Christmas

Hi! I'm here today to introduce some more of Uniko's October new release.

Two stencils:

And a stamp set:

My first two cards both feature the Scandinavian Christmas stencil combined with the Simply Said Blocks Christmas stamp set.

I used the stencil with embossing paste and a traditional red coloured card. I die cut a stitched window and popped the embossed panel behind it.  Then I stamped and heat embossed a greeting, mounted it onto pads and adhered it below the window.

Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said Blocks Christmas
Stencil: Uniko, Scandinavian Christmas
Ink: Versamark, clear + Wow sparkling snow embosing powder
Paste : Dreamweaver white embossing paste
Die: MFT Dienamics, rectangle peek-a-boo window

I used the same supplies for my next card, but changed up the colours to purple and silver. Ha, no surprises there then!

This time I used distress oxide inks with the stencil and then added some silver sparkle card to glam it all up.

Stamps: Uniko Simply Said Blocks Christmas
Stencil: Uniko, Scandinavian Christmas
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, wilted violet, seedless preserves, picked raspberry; Ranger distress, wilted violet
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles
Silver card and washi from my stash

My last share for today steps away from Christmas even though it uses the Christmas Folk Snowflake stencil.  I chose some warm autumnal distress oxide collours and used a sentiment from an older Uniko set.

I have to say I'm totally smitten by this stencil. I just love how easy it is to use and the results are quite spectacular. I actually placed it at an angle on my card stock - sort of a diamond rather than a square - before adding the ink.

Stamps: Uniko, Big & Bold Hello
Stencil: Uniko, Christmas Folk Snowflake
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, fossilized amber, wild honey, candied apple; Memento, tuxedo black

That's today's shares over, but I'll be back again tomorrow with some more cards and not a Christmas card in sight!

Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you tomorrow.  But in the meantime keep crafting!

  1. Ooh love the juxtaposition of the classic and the modern Xmas colour combos! Wonderful blending with your last card too; you’ve achieved a great focal point with your colouring x

  2. Your trio of cards showcases the new stencils beautifully! Captivated by the crisp red/white of the first (hope you don't mind...I used a 'similar' style for a set of cards for reveal day...before I realized you had made this. Obviously channeling you!), the oh-la-la glamour of the second; the warm palette of the third. Once again, marveling at your creativity and delighting in your inspiration!

  3. I think I like the stencil design as the diamond better than the square!!
    That's a beautiful card. I love the gorgeous red & white card; love the
    dimension that the ep gives. And yay for purple!! My fave, of course.

  4. Super new stencils and you've showcased them wonderfully xx

  5. Gorgeous showcase of these two stencils and in such different ways ! Love the blue Christmas card and the stunning colours of your third card. Three beautiful cards and designs !

  6. WOW! You've showcased those stencils beautifully, love the colours you've used on the Folk Snowflake xx

  7. Just fabulous yet again! I also couldn't resist a swoon over the red one but WOW another purple one! Such neat and elegant stencilling on all of these examples! Beautiful as ever! x
