K1-1261 - Folk-Snowflake BackgroundK1-1261 - Folk-Snowflake Background

Uniko Studio


Already two weeks ago the November/December 2019 Challenge on the Uniko Blog started!
So it's time to write a little reminder for you - just in case you havn't played there yet!
On the Blog page you'll find in both postings, the originally Challenge post and the today's reminder post, also all the cards from the Brand Ambassador Team and our Guest Designer 
Nonni.
Check them out and be inspired!

The seasonal theme for this Challenge is Christmas.Am I right, that's a perfect one?! Cause most of us are still crafting for friends and family or like me for our town christmas market booth...
If you want, you can add the optional twist of "Tree" to your design, but you needn't do this.


To keep in mind the Challenge Guidelines:
  • You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products. Plus, there is an extra chance to win a prize if you do ;)
  • Email entries are welcome, just email a photo of your card to bev@uniko.co.uk and she will add it to the Uniko Flickr gallery and link up!
  • Please share the challenge graphic in your post and link back to the challenge.

I also have some details of the possible PRIZES:
  • Main Winner Chosen By the DT - £25 eGift Certificate
  • Random Twist Winner - £5 In Stock Clear Stamp Set of Winners Choosing
  • Random Uniko Stamps Winner - £5 In Stock Clear Stamp Set of Winners Choosing
  • Top 3 Chosen By DT - 150 Loyalty Reward Points
You've got plenty of time to play along with this month's challenge - we added one more week this time cause of the Christmas days. 
You have time until midnight (GMT) on Friday 27th December 2019.

K1-1261 - Folk-Snowflake Background - Detail
:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:
The steps to create a card like this one are so easy and they don't need lots of time!
  • Create an easy and colourful background paper with two or three alcohol inks and the smooshing technique.
    Pep it up with a bit of additional ink ot blending solution (splatters ot brush strokes).
  • Take your Christmas Folk Snowflake Stencil and trace all edges with a fine marker. Work slow and careful to get a good result!
  • Cut this paper, have an eye on the pattern (there are different possibilities).
  • Adhere the paper on a fitting coloured paper and these two layers on your card base or adhere your paper directly on the card front.
  • Stamp the sentiment three times in different colours or techniques. In my case I stamped them in Distress Oxide Inks, picked raspberry and abandoned coral (mixed them on the stamp). The first one I just let as it was, the second one I covered with a clear star gelly roll pencil and the third one I heat embossed with fine clear powder.
  • I cut out 1/4 of one snowflake / star of the background pattern and put it on the sentiment layer.
    Adhere this sentiment layer with 3D pads on the front. It's extra eye catching when you insert the little cut out piece in the original background pattern - same position of the elements!
  • If you want, you can embellish the card with some glitter or enamel doots, rhinestones, pearls or sequins. But don't do too much, sometimes less is more when you have a busy background!

K1-1200 - Glücklichsein-II

Diesmal hab ich einen tollen Text-Sstempel in Szene gesetzt - und das auf ähnliche, aber doch unterschiedliche Weise gleich auf zwei Karten!
Der Stempel stammt aus der Berliner "Stempelbar".

This time I put the focus on a great sentiment stamp - in similar but not same way on two cards.

The stamp is made from a stamp-facorty here in Berlin - the "Stempelbar".
The translation of this German block-sentiment is 

"Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It stands for being able to overlook the imperfect things."
