FAVES Times Two!


I'm back this morning to share a card using 2 of my favourite stamp sets from the Uniko Studio October Release & 2 of my favourite colours for Christmas cards...

I started out by revisiting a layout I've used recently on this card I shared HERE, I just elongated it to a 14 x 10.5 cm card. The colours I've used and more specifically the inks are the new line of VersaMagic Inks that Caz has in the shop. They stamp wonderfully and so vibrant don't you think? 

This was a super quick card to make, another to add to the mass produceable list, if required! I added some rhinestones to the snowflakes, but to make it mail friendly a bit of glitter would look just as pretty.

DON'T FORGET I will be at The Paperlane on Saturday 9th November 10 am - 2 pm FREE Demo & also there are a couple of places left in the class 2 pm - 5 pm!  I'd love to see you! 

Card Stock: PTI Hawaiian Shores. Red from stash
Ink: VersaMagic Turquoise Gem & Red Magic. VersaFine Onyx Black
Accessories: Rhinestones

Jolly Christmas!


It's Beverley here with another little JOLLY Christmas card to share & also remind you all about my upcoming demo & class at The Paperlane on Saturday 9th November! There are a few places left on the class so be sure to book with Caz to secure yours.

Anyway, I made this little card to share with you all...

Yup, I've inked up Jolly Santa from Jolly Christmas and had fun with a little paper piecing. I rarely use patterned paper in my cards even though I have a HUGE stack of lovely papers! I decided to use a patterned paper from Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday. Along with using the paper for Santa I decided to add a strip down either side of the white panel he is stamped on.

I added a sentiment also from the Jolly Christmas set to a banner & some glitter to add a little sparkle & finish things off.  Paper piecing is just one of the techniques we will be doing in the class on Saturday, it's so much fun and can add a totally different look to your projects.

Thanks for stopping by today & I hope to see you on Saturday ;)

Introducing... Peace On Earth


I'm back today with another product introduction that reflects the peaceful side of the holiday season...

A modern, graphic yet elegant dove is the main feature of this set, I kept things really simple & easily mass producible with this first card. I simply stamped the dove & sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink. A simple branch stamped in green & a good dose of glitter to the dove finished the card off nicely.

My next card pairs todays set with the Stunning Snowflakes set which was introduced HERE yesterday.

The snowflakes are stamped & embossed with White Cosmic Shimmer EP onto a lovely blue CS,  this  provided the perfect back drop for a gold embossed dove on a strip of vellum.

Ok, that's all from me today, but be sure to stop on by Uniko Studio's DT Aimes & Taheerah's blogs to see what they've created. I can guarantee you WONT be disappointed :)

I'll be back tomorrow with the last product introduction in the Uniko Studio October Release, until then thanks for stopping by & don't forget all the products used are now available to purchase at The Paperlane!

Introducing Designer Dies Snowflakes & Stunning Snowflakes Clear Stamps


Today, I get to introduce two of my favourite products of this release, Designer Dies Snowflakes & Stunning Snowflakes clear stamp set. These are NOW available to purchase at The Paperlane!

Lets get to the cards...

I decided to create a CAS country rustic feel on my cards by using Kraft  & Cream card stock mixed with some linen thread.

I started out by stamping the snowflake strip from Background Builders: Christmas in Vintage Cream ink & the sentiment from Peace On Earth (more on this later in the week) in Chocolate Chip ink. I then wrapped some linen thread around the layer and created a loopy bow of thread to place behind the die cut snowflake.

This first card then led onto this next card...

This time I switched the card stock colours around and layered the medium & small die cut snowflakes. The sentiment is also from Peace On Earth, which you will get a closer look at later in the week.

Now, I'm changing gears colour wise to share a couple of cards using Stunning Snowflakes...

This first card is a one layer card, perfect for mailing out and it didn't take too long to create. The most time consuming part was stamping the snowflake background. I didn't time myself but this card didn't take me more than 10 minutes to make.

My next card was also a super quick card to create...

The snowflakes are stamped in Turquoise Gem & Red Magic VersaMagic ink which Caz has in stock, it stamps beautifully.

Ok, that's all from me today, but be sure to stop on by a couple of Uniko Studio's DT blogs, Aimes & Taheerah, to see what they've created. I can guarantee you WONT be disappointed :)

Thanks for stopping by :)

Introducing All Occasion Sentiments #4

Hey & Happy Monday!

It's an exciting time for Uniko Studio as it is NEW release time. All the new products are NOW available to purchase at The Paperlane :)

So as I introduce each new product on the Uniko Studio Blog HERE, I'd share them here too! Todays product that I am introducing is the next in the line up of those large focal sentiments contained in All Occasion Sentiments #4...

I decided to use the 'Merry & Bright' sentiment contained in the set. Each of the words & ampersand come as separate stamps, making it easier for different combinations & layouts.

This card also gives you a peek at two of the building stamps from Background Builders: Christmas which you will get a introduction to later in the week. It just pairs so nicely with the 'Merry & Bright' sentiment from the set I'm introducing today!

Short & sweet from me today, but if you want a couple more ideas using this set Aimes & Taheerah from the Uniko Studio DT  joining me with the introductions today, so be sure to stop on by their blogs...

I will be back tomorrow with more to share & another product introduction.
