Uniko Challenge #46 - Mar/Apr Reminder

Hello Everyone, it's time a reminder post for our current challenge.
You might have notice that only half of the DT posted for the challenge earlier, since we have a lot of DT members we have split the challenge posts in 2 for the DT.

Here is our lovely inspiration. Feel free to interpret the way you want.

I have used all the colors plus also the optional twist.
I cut out the eggs on a post it and sponge those on the card front in the above colors, and then did masking and stamped the daffodil. I used MArsgraphic markers to watercolor the flower and leaves.
I then used the natures treasure set and stamped the leaves at the bottom of the card. It makes the perfect scene and setting for the Easter or Spring theme.
I then added a gold strip to the top of the card, and added my card front above it, and stamped the sentiment from Snowdrop set, and a few jewels to finish off.

Sending Love xx

Hello friends, weekend is almost here, ans so is our Spring break. There might be a last minute planned holiday too, really hoping for that ;)

I made this quick card under 5 minutes again, but I have no video for it this time, as I wasn't aiming for one.

I have used the Grey card stock from CrafTangles, and dry embossed the front with their raining hearts stencil. I die cut the xxxxx from paper Smooches and the 'Sending' from SSS. Actually I was going to use just the diecuts, but I loved the negatives more than the positives, so ended using it as the whole panel!
I simply added a glossy and glittery neon heart sticker to finish off the card.
I am loving the color combo here.

Wish you were here

Happy Monday Peeps, one more week of school until the Spring break!
I am up with a super simple card!
I had this idea tickling me for more than month now, and finally I gave in yesterday and sat down to execute the card.
I computer generated the sentiment on CrafTangles card stock. I then partially stamped the skyline from Happy Little Stampers - wish you were here set. I doodled the location pin, and the speech bubble, colored it red, and that's it I was done.

The whole idea id dropping a pin on the map, I chose a matching card stock to mimic the map color, but minus the map layout, as I wanted it to be a CAS card.

I hope you like my crazy imagination!

Uniko Design Team Blog Hop (Revisit Fun Flowers Clear Stamp Set & Stencil)

Hey all, it's time for a revisit at Uniko.
Today we are revising the previously released set - Fun Flowers stamp set and recently released stencil as well.

I have made 2 cards using the flower stamp set.

For the below card, I chose do a one layer, and Stamped the flowers and leaves in just one corner of the card, and stamped the sentiment over the image. I decided to leave the images as outlined, as I liked it as it is!

The second card is also stamped in outlines, I have used a Pink front to stamp the flowers and leaves. I trimmed the panel and split it up to add with the sentiment in between the panels. I stamped the Happy over the big sentiment- I don't know what I was thinking, but I have a neutal feeling for this card, there is no love or hate😏

Floral twofer

Hey all, I am up with a set of 2 cards inspired by the twofer challenge.
I have used the Uniko Gerbara flower set here for the floral theme.

I have made one "Friend" card, it can be for any occasion. The other one using the same stamp, and I made it as an encouragement card.
Linking this with the Twofer Challenge

I used a white base and a kraft front for this card. I stamped the outlined Gerbara and colored it using the zig clean colors markers. I used the broken line stencil and added some random strokes without taking away too much clean space, a one word sentiment is stamped, and it can be used for any occasion to send to a friend. I finished off with a green glitter strip to one edge and a few jewels.

I am hoping that despite the broken lines, my space comes out to be one third. If it is not eligible, please feel to delete it!

Floral Frenzy

For this card, I used the same flower outline and did mirror stamping, to create wings. I am hoping that you can see these as wings, even though it is a floral stamp.
I used the zigs to water color the wings. Stamped the sentiment from CASual Fridays.

I have used the same colors, though the red shows as pink on the white paper, but it red!

Foiled heart

I am up with a second post, which didn't happen in a long time.
I made this card on Tuesday night after I saw the CASology cue and it is waiting to be posted.

This one was a super quick card. I simply added the holographic Foil from CrafTangles on a card stock with double sided tape, and ran through the big shot using winni@walter heart die, and I decided to keep all the pieces inlaid, I looks better in my opinion, specially with the foil.
The sentiments are also from winnie and walter, the big and bold hello.
The hello is added using foam adhesive, and the love is flat.
I had the compulsion to add the silver glitter strip at the bottom, I think it looks ok, what do you think?
That's all, no jewels added this time, ans the foil adds lots of shimmer as it is.

hoping the shimmer from the foils equals the bling, if not please delete it!

Quick card under 5 mins series - #1

Good morning/day friends.
I am starting a YouTube series for quick cards 5 mins.

This is not going to be a time-lapse, but it will be normal paced video, so that you can see the card getting done in real time.
This card took me over 4 mins, and after adding the picture, later it goes a few seconds over 5 mins with the transition effect.

I am not describing how it is made, please watch the video if you want to.
