Coloring on Kraft - A short video

Hey all it's Rahmat here.
I am up with a simple card using the Flower Power set, and sentiment from the Pure florals - Lily.

Please watch the video, it is self explanatory.
You can also stop by my instagram at rahmat.ccc, if you want to hear me out about how I made this card, it is a shorter video over there.



I hope you like what I have come up with.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!

CAS Colours & Sketches #245 - Colours

Hey!

I'm late, I'm late, but what's new with that?! This twin mummy is rarely on time for anything these days! Apologies for my being late, but let's see what Emily our hostess for October at CAS Colours & Sketches has to inspire us with THIS week... 





I had quite a few ideas on how to apply the colours to my card, but as time to create has been really short, I went for a simple colour block look...




Card stock is one medium I always have the Stampin' Up! colours in, so this made it easy to use all 3 quickly and simply. I am having SO much fun with the Uniko October 2017 Release and one of my favourite clear stamp sets is Organic Wishes




I simply stamped the seed heads, stems and sentiment in VersaMark ink and I have heat embossed them in Cosmic Shimmer Detail White EP. Super quick and simple! 

That's all from me today using the colours, but if you need some more inspiration using the colours be sure to pop by the CAS Colours & Sketches blog HERE and see how the DT and Guest Designer have used it.

CAS Colours & Sketches have a Design Team Call this week and next week. To be eligible to apply you need to join in on both this weeks and next weeks challenges. More details over on the CAS Colours & Sketches Blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Introducing... Organic Wishes

Hey & Happy Sunday!

I look forward to seeing any of you that might be attending Stamp Magic in Doncaster today :)

Anyway, let's get back to the October 2017 product release and introduce the final clear stamp set.  If you have missed days 1 - 4 you can catch up HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!

Today's clear stamp set was inspired by some doodles that DT member Lindsey sent me and I got to working and Organic Wishes was born...




This set features a selection of modern seed heads and wishes sentiments. It is designed in a similar style to Originally Organic and Originally Organic Additions as well as having small features found in Uniko Style and Natures Treasures




The double stem stamp from the set comes as two vertical lines, but I have designed it so that they can be easily bent to angle them in your desired direction, like I have to the right on my card. I've done some simple masking and ink blending to create a Autumn inspired ombré background. The sentiment is one from the set.

That's all from me here, but be sure to hop along all the Design Team blogs and leave a comment along the way, as you never know you might just win a random prize! I know for sure that you won't be disappointed the Design Team have created a bountiful wealth of inspiration :)

Introducing... Background Blocks Wonky Stripes

Hey & Happy Weekend!

I'm SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the October 2017 product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks and we are now onto day 4 of the product introductions. You can catch up HERE, HERE and HERE with day 1, 2 and 3.

Today the Design Team and I are introducing the next stamp in the Background Blocks series called Wonky Stripes.




I decided that my first card using this new background called for my favourite trio of colours and the Uniko Style flower to create a quirky thank you card :)




The background block is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic Markers. I then used my MISTI to stamp the large and small solid Uniko flowers and heat embossed the white circles. These and the sentiment from Simply Said Blocks are fussy cut out and adhered to the card using foam adhesive. I added some large black enamel dots for the centres of the flowers. 

That's all from me here, but be sure to hop along all the Design Team blogs and leave a comment along the way, as you never know you might just win a random prize! I know for sure that you won't be disappointed the Design Team have created a bountiful wealth of inspiration :)

Uniko Sponsors "Less is More"

Hey & Happy Weekend!

I'm super duper pleased you have popped by this morning as today the countdown to the October Release continues AND myself and Uniko are proud to be sponsoring the challenges over at "Less is More" this month  - YAY!




This week is one layer week and the theme is stars, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to create another Guest Design / Sponsor card!




It seemed totally appropriate to ink up Background Builders: Seeing Stars clear stamp set from the September 2017 Release and I just *had* to pair it with a NEW Uniko Stencil being released on Monday - whoohoo!

Can you tell that I am just a little excited about this new product?! 





Last weekend I treated myself to some more Distress Oxide inks and I have used Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry with this fun Wonky Stripe stencil. I did some simple masking on my base card before applying the ink and blending them to create a lovely purple shade too :) I still nee a little practice with stencils, but I am loving these inks! 

I then used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment from Festive Sentiments and the stars in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed them with Stardust EP. The birthday sentiment is from Happy Succulents and I went in and added a few tiny stamped stars.

I hope I have inspired you to join in on the fun?! 

That's all from myself for now, but be sure to head on over HERE to see what the "Less is More" Design Team have created to inspire you and to join in on the fun too. I hope to see you in the gallery!

I'll be back AGAIN soon with the last of the October 2017 product introductions!

Today the Design Team and I are introducing the next stamp in the Background Blocks series, called Falling  Snowflakes.

How about a little festive scene to show off these falling snowflakes...




I love white embossing on kraft card and it seemed the perfect opportunity when I was putting this little scene together. I've combined a couple of previously released Uniko clear stamp sets on this card. Firstly the tree and little bird is from Rustic Christmas and the sentiment is from Most Wonderful




That's all from me here, but be sure to hop along all the Design Team blogs and leave a comment along the way, as you never know you might just win a random prize! I know for sure that you won't be disappointed the Design Team have created a bountiful wealth of inspiration :)
