Uniko Studio stamps, CAS cards

The theme for the Uniko October challenge is rainbow colours.

I've gone for some very delicate blooms in all the colours of the rainbow
to take my mind off the very dreary, dismal weather outside!
The flowers are from the "Background Builders: Vines" set and
the sentiment is from the "Simply Said: Birthday" set.


There are some lovely ideas from the rest of the DT over at the main Uniko blog HERE.

As usual, Bev has some great prizes.
So why not get creative and upload your creation?!
You have until midnight on Friday 11 November.
Have fun ;)



Another floral card for CAS Colours & Sketches sketch
and the new challenge: The Flower Challenge.


Playing with my new Uniko Studio "Pure Florals: Gerbera" stamps and matching dies. Lush!

I've managed to grab a quick 45 minutes crafting inbetween dropping off and collecting younger son from rugby.
Rather him than me!
It's pitch black and freezing outside ...
You can just feel Halloween and Bonfire Night around the corner :)



Paper Players have the prompt 'leaf' and
there's a new challenge in town: The Flower Challenge.






Just love the bold images in the "Beautiful Blooms" Uniko stamp set.
Wouldn't it be brilliant for an accent wallpapered wall?!
Hope your week is panning out nicely ...
Nearly half way through the working week already. Gosh!




Using CAS(e) This Sketch.

Seize The Birthday has 'anything goes' and

for the tic-tac-toe challenge I've gone for (birthday-masculine-packaging).

I'm hoping my washi tape and cardboard count :)



Am nursing a stinking cold this weekend.
So taking it very easy with no housework,
Keeping warm indoors,
Sitting crafting with herbal tea on tap!


Using Color Throwdown's combo and
AlwaysPlayingWithPaper photo inspiration.



And it's the weekend. Yippee!

Hope you some fun things lined up ...




Crafty Creations want 'anything but a card'.



I made these with the children at school last week.

Stamps, inks, punches and glitter paper ...

Lots of fun!



Using this week's Freshly Made Sketch.
The Male Room and Just Us Girls want 'leaves'
and the Autumn challenge is still on over at Uniko.

It's a beautiful, sunny Autumn day.
We've just come back from a long walk with the dog,
and my pockets are full of new, glossy conkers.
Love conkers!
Did you know they are reputed to ward off spiders?
My son has piles of them in each corner of his bedroom!

A bit of glitz and glamour ...


... to celebrate

Release Day over at Uniko Studio.

And what a line up Bev has for us!

Marvellous Mehndi£9.00 - £9.95

Originally Organic £9.00 - £9.95

Next we have the lovely "Originally Organic" which also lends itself very well to colouring. The eagle-eyed amongst you may notice the resemblance to the free digi stamp set in the recent edition of "Simply Cards & Papercrafts" magazine (available for download HERE).
Simply Said II £4.00 - £4.95

Ever useful, the "Simply Said II" set complements the previous Simply Said stamp set. This new addition includes several Christmas phrases which leads me aptly on to the last 2 new stamp sets!

Christmas is not too far around the corner folks. This smaller stamp set is great for knocking up lots of quick and easy Christmas cards (complete with sparkle and bling).

The last stamp set is another smaller one. Great for adding foliage to your Christmas themed projects, or Thanksgiving if you're of American descent!

Uniko studio stamps
A little something to get you feeling festive ...
It's the last of the Uniko Studio stamp sets from the mega Autumn Release.
I'm heading over to Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Day with my card.
Can never be too early starting your Christmas cards ;)

I'll be back tomorrow for Release Day.

Weh hey!

Please do come and join in the fun!

Until this time tomorrow ..


Using this week's CAS Colours & Sketches.
As it's a 5 week month they have a double whammy - colours & sketch!

I have to confess I did find it a rather challenging colour combo!
They're not 3 colours that I would normally team together
but then they don't call them 'challenges' for nothing ;)

I've paired some of the images from the new Mehndi stamp set
with a couple from the previously released Fun Flowers stamp set.
Complement one another very well!

If you'd like to see more creations using these new stamp sets,
go take a look at what the rest of the Uniko DT have been creating.
First up is Bev HERE.

I'll be back tomorrow with the last (but not least!) of the new product introductions.

I hope you'll join me.
Thank you for stopping by today.

Good morning Peeps.
A day to blossom and bloom!
Welcome to the first peek at one of the new Uniko Autumn release stamp sets.

Uniko Studio Stamps, CAS cards

This lovely Originally Organic stamp set can be drssed up or down.
Perfect for some therapeutic colouring for those who want to take their time
or great for some quick and easy cards with its crisp outline images.
I'm going down the CAS route, with a little bit of added bling :)

The rest of the Uniko DT have lots of ideas using this new set,
why not pop along and take a look?
First up is Bev HERE.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more new product introductions.
I hope you'll join me.
Thank you for stopping by today.
Today is the last of the Sneak Peeks for the Uniko Autumn Release.

As we edge further into Autumn, you will see that these last 2 clear stamp sets are Christmas/Winter themed!

A mini Christmas set but with many possibilities. Great for quick CAS projects.

Lastly, but by no means least is another mini set...

A fun winter foliage set, perfect to accompany the Christmas decoration set above and great for complementing the many floral sets Uniko offers.

Hopefully the last three days will have whetted your appetite with Sneak Peeks for the forthcoming Uniko Autumn Release ...

Tomorrow, we kick off with stamp sets introductions and a daily Uniko DT Blog Hop.

Release Day is Saturday 1st October when you will get to see the products in their entirety and purchase them HERE on the Uniko website.

As usual there will be a Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!
Hope to see you again tomorrow for our first product introduction and blog hop.
