Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop

By Taheerah | 11th December 2014 | 26 Comments

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!

I’m back with Uniko Studio one last time for the Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop! This is in place of the usual release Blog Hop and focuses on all brand-new sets now available in store!

Please feel free to start at the Uniko blog to hop away from the beginning!

This release is so very awesome!! Don’t forget – all new release products are available today to purchase from Uniko Studio!!

Bev is doing the full reveal of all the products today – go and check out the Uniko blog to see it all and comment for a chance to win an awesome prize!! How awesome is that?!

So, here are some projects I cooked up featuring this month’s new stamps:

First up – a fun, rustic style card created with the Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions and Simply Said Christmas sets!

I built my wreath from a lot of the fun images from this set, using a lightly pencilled circle to guide the shaping. I added some glitter and white splatter for added interest! 

Next up, a fun wintry card featuring the BIG & Bold – Snow and Rustic Christmas sets! I heat embossed all the images in white then blended some Distress Inks over them and splattered with water mixed with a little Perfect Pearls.

I loved selectively masking some of the letters from one of the sentiments from Rustic Christmas to create the fun ‘TM’ part of the sentiment! 

Finally, a very traditional card featuring Rustic Christmas and Simply Said Christmas!

I masked off a rectangle in the centre of the tree before inking it up, then removed the tape and stamped leaving the rectangle in the middle, perfect to nestle the sentiment in! I also used the same WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder to add the gold border to my card base before adhering my panel down! 

So are you ready to hop?! The DT has put on an amazing spread of creations and you simply must check them out!! Make sure you also head back to the Uniko blog where Bev is doing the full reveal of all the products in this month’s release – you definitely want to see these beauties in their entirety!!

Just before you leave, I just wanted to mention that this is my last post as a member of the Uniko Studio Design Team. I’ve had a wonderful time on this team and loved working with all the products. I want to personally thank Bev for having me on the team and I will be cheering the company on from the sidelines as it will always hold a special place in my heart. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all my creations with Uniko products, and I’m sure I’ll still post the odd card here and there featuring some favourite sets of mine. *wink*

  5. Oh my, these are stunning Taheerah! Love your fun twists on these awesome stamps….the masked sentiment in the rustic tree looks brilliant and I love the wreath stamped on kraft. Thanks for all of the inspiration you have brought us as part of the DT 🙂

  6. Beautiful cards Taheerah, I love the wreath on the first card. I can appreciate how difficult it is to stamp small images in a circle, having had a go myself! But you make it look effortless. Stef x

  7. I'll miss seeing your wonderfully inspired and inspiring cards featuring Uniko products. It's through you that I initially discovered Bev, so THANK YOU immensely. Your finale series here: absolutely gorgeous!! As always, you work magic with Uniko!

  9. Wow – these are all just gorgeous! I really like the folksy feel of the Christmas wreath, the cool tones on the snow storm, but my favourite it the beautiful, elegant gold Christmas tree. Great work. Good luck with your future projects!

  10. A tear in my eye 🙁 as I write my comment. Your cards today are a beautiful showcase of the sets and of your style. The 'TM' is just such a fun accent and the masking on the embossed tree to fit the sentiment inside is genius and you've made it look seamless. THANK YOU so much for all your hard work and all you have brought to Uniko Studio. I do hope to see you inking up your favourite Uniko stamps now & again & I wish you all the best in your future adventures. The biggest of hugs Bev xx
