Uniko February Release Day Blog Hop and Treasure Hunt

I feel a little like Buddy the Elf today. I want to shout 'Uniko's coming, Uniko! I know her, I know her!' because today is RELEASE DAY! And you can get all the lovely products that myself and Bev and all the amazing design team have been showing you all week.


Today is a fabulous blog hop and Treasure Hunt. A little more sedate than Anneka Rice (just aged myself there!!), but just as exciting. 

The rules of the Treasure Hunt are:

1. Comment along the Blog Hop and find the icons
2. Email bev@uniko.co.uk with the following information:
  • Design Team Member's Name & Balloon letter found 
  • What the Balloons spell out
Entries should be emailed no later than Thursday 28th February 2019, for the winner to be announced Friday 1st March 2019.

And the prize?? The ENTIRE 7th Birthday February Release - Amazing!! That's 6 clear stamp sets, 2 co-ordinating designer dies collections and 1 stencil design. 

Now that's worth entering! And not only that, but Bev will also be drawing a random comment from the hop to win a £25 clear stamp prize package. Clearly Bev is well and truly in birthday mode!

For my card, I couldn't resist using that glorious Passiflora again. This time I stamped the outline image onto Copic friendly cardstock with Memento London Fog. I then added in details in different Memento inks and coloured the leaves with different shades of B and BV Copic markers.


I stamped the tendrils with some green, teal and grey Memento ink and cut all the images with the coordinating dies.

I could not resist using that abstract triangle stencil again - it's third outing this release, so you can tell how much I love it! - and did some very soft blending in the corner (again inspired by Lisa's post!) in greys.


I added the flowers to the top of the card and the sentiment to the bottom on top of the stencilling.

Next on the hop is Carol! Happy hopping, and good luck!

This may be my favourite of all the cards, and I have loved them all Ruth. So pretty with the BVs (I use mine quite often, I think the colours are beautiful) and it's a beautiful layout too. It always makes me happy to think I may have inspired someone somehow, so thanks once again for the shout out, I appreciate it. I'm glad you fell in love with stencils, you do such a lovely job with them. Congratulations to you, Bev and all the DT, I think the release is wonderful and the DT posts have been inspiring. And I've enjoyed seeing you make cards again xx
