Uniko Guest (Part 2)

If you can believe it, this is my second guest post today. For my MFT post, please scroll down.


I'm also back today with the second of my Uniko Guest posts (here's the first). I've been working with All Occasion Sentiments #6  and I just love how well they work with all of the previous sets Uniko has released.


My first card was inspired by this pin. I used the daisy from Flower Power #7. I love the vibrant colour combination, but of course, I wanted some white space! I love how Beverley designed the 'you make me' (and the 'be your own kind of') bits of the sentiments to fit right into the main words ('smile' and beautiful').  I finished with the 3 hearts from Flower Power #3.


For my second card, I used Beautiful from the current release, and the rest of the sentiment is from All Occasion Sentiments #3. I created a background by die cutting and inlaying the beautiful graphic flower from Time. I sponged the panel as well as the cardbase in warm sunny colours.


I love the casual, handwritten feeling of the 'smile' sentiment and decided to have a little fun with it! I used simple die cut shapes to create a funny face that is sure to make the recipient smile.

I want to thank Bev for inviting me to Guest this month - what an privilege to be an honourary member of the Design Team!

Ardyth, you have the most AMAZING talent. Love all these cards and you have certainly wowed the challenge post. The striking vibrant colours and offset panel to the first is simply brilliant, the second one is inky fantastic and great use of the die and sentiments but that third one has me smiling from ear to ear! Love, love, love it and thanks so much for agreeing to play along with us this month. Sarah x

What gorgeous, vibrant blooms, Ardyth ... a fantastic take on your Pinterest inspiration ... with your perfect touch of delicious CASness! Wonderful sponged background for that lovely inlaid die cut ... sunny and bright, just like a sunrise! I laughed out loud at that fun face with the 'over the top' eyes and big smile ... brilliant!
