Uniko Nov 2022 Stencil Release Day, Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!

Here we are! 

The full release of the Uniko Nov 2022 stencils:

MOD Background Builder Stencil

I'm not sure if you can make it out but I thought the pattern looked like Christmas sweeties! Here I have simply inked red distress oxide through the middle stencil and added the white details using a gel pen. The sentiment is from Uniko Simply Said Blocks Christmas stamp set.

Flower Power #6 Stencil

This stencil very much reminds me of the Irish rose style painting you used to get on ceramics so I designed my card in that style. The sentiments from Uniko Birthday Wishes stamp set and Uniko Originally Organic stamp set not only match the style of my card but mix and match with each other beautifully too.

Large Snowflake One

As soon as I saw this stencil I knew it would look great with Uniko Background Blocks Cogs stamp and I was not disappointed! I love how this has turned out. First of all I used the mask to be able to stamp the cogs and leave a clear space in the centre. I used three shades of ink to give an ombre effect and stamped the cogs twice next to each other. I then swapped out the mask for the stencil and inked the inside, concentrating the darker colour to the edges. The sentiment is from Uniko Christmas Sentiments stamp set. 

Large Snowflake Two

And finally for today we have a softer edged snowflake. For such a simple looking card this actually has a lot of features but I don't think they have photographed well! I used the stencil to give me a shape to dot on some stickles. To try and give the snowflake more definition I then ran the piece (once dried!) through the die cutting machine but with the stencil in place and using an embossing mat. This is the detail that I don't think has photographed particularly well. I then die cut the panel as I wanted to just use part of the snowflake. the sentiment is once again from Uniko Christmas Sentiments stamp set. 

What a fabulous array of designs, I'm sure at least one must take your fancy! My favourite? Hard to say but I was very pleasantly surprised by how well the Uniko Large Snowflake 2 transfers to card and I can't wait to play about with it some more.
