Guesting for Uniko - September Release


So today I get to tell you what a lucky girl I've been this month! Beverley from Uniko asked me to Guest along with the Design Team for the September release. I've been working with All Occasions Sentiments #6 and it is SO. MUCH. FUN.  I love to focus on sentiments - it really frees you to try so many different ways of using and enhancing them!

For my first card, I used the two-part beautiful sentiment. I used Kaleidecolor (Royal Satin) ink for the 'beautiful' and black for the rest. Then I inked up my favourite daisy from Flower Power #7, also inked up with Kaleidecolor. To create a frame and some dimension, I popped up the sentiment using a Pierced Rectangle from MFT.

Next up, two graphic Thank you cards. I always love to see people using the same supplies in different ways - I hope you do too!




 First, I wanted to stamp a 6-colour rainbow. But only 5 images would fit on my panel. Hmmmm. Ping! I stamped each in two colours and I love the gradient look it gives - especially from a distance - go ahead, take a step back! lol!


Next up, I combined the sentiment with the Flower Power #7 Daisy (used the leaves from Flower Power #6) and the stem from Flower Power #3 (isn't it great how these all work together!). I shaded the letters with Warm Grey copics and then filled them in with Stickles. I love the rich colour combination of SU's Cherry Cobbler and Tip Top Taupe.

Congratulations on the GD spot! All three cards are just fantastic! Love the colors on the first, the gradient rainbow on the second ( great solution to use two colors on the stamp), and the layout and fall colors of the third!

Yay ... another 'many congratulations' is in order, Ardyth ... on guest designing with Uniko! Brilliant cards ... you've showcased that sentiment set so deliciously ... the pops of bright floral colour on the first, the ombré rainbow on the second, and the bloom/glittery sentiment combo on the third ... they're all simply and wonderfully fabulous! Ordered this set just this morning ... now I have a heap of inspiration! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)
