Uniko Challenge #45 - Guest Designer!

Good morning!

After being super lucky and winning the last challenge at Uniko, I'm thrilled to be the Guest Designer for their next challenge starting today!

Below are the details for the next challenge and you can find the link to the main challenge post here.

Over the New Year I was suffering with a flu bug and lovely Bev at Uniko was wonderfully sweet and sent me a gorgeous card along with one of her beautiful stamp sets, just to cheer me up.  Thanks once again, Bev, you're an absolute gem, and such a thoughtful and generous gift.

And as this challenge is 'Something Old, Something New', I've used the stamp set here as my something new :)

I started by embossing a panel of white cardstock with a diagonal stripe embossing folder I've had in my stash for years, I believe it is now retired.  So that was my something old.  I sliced a section out of the panel and stamped the sentiment and heart directly onto the card base in the diagonal gap created.  The embossed panels were then popped up on fun foam and to finish I added a tiny clear gemstone to the heart.  I never know which is the positive and negative side of this embossing folder, but I love both sides anyway!

Materials used:

  • Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up - Stylish Stripes
  • Stamps: Uniko - Big & Bold Hugs
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Versa Color - Cardinal
  • Gemstone from stash

Challenge entries:

Simply Create Too - Challenge #134 - Use Embossing

Moving Along with the Times - Challenge #63 - CAS

Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope you get a chance to play along.  I'll be back with you tomorrow morning to introduce the next challenge at Less is More.  Hope to see you then!
