Hi everybody!! Just popping in with a quick reminder about the current Uniko Studio Challenge which is underway at the moment. The theme is:
CHRISTMAS with optional twist of CAS (Clean and Simple)
I'm very honoured to have been invited as Guest Designer for this last challenge of the year. Bev knows I love nothing better than designing a 'clean and simple' card, so this is such a thrill for me!!
And I just have to say that the Gallery for the challenge so far is filled with so many amazing and inspiring card designs. You definitely need to have a look!!
For this card I had snowflakes on my mind, and for me nothing goes better with white snowflakes than blue:
I started by die cutting a circle of white CS with a die from Couture Creations. I stamped and heat embossed in white some snowflakes from Uniko Studio sets 'Big & Bold - Snow' and 'Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions'. I then very carefully used my mini blending tool and Distress Ink 'Peacock Feathers' to add some soft colour.
After die cutting a smaller circle from vellum, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from 'Big & Bold - Snow' in white and adhered it over the snowflakes with very tiny pieces of double-sided tape behind the letters. This way the tape doesn't (hopefully) show. A few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh gave it the sparkle it needed!
I have six challenges I would like to enter:
