TIME OUT Challenge #3 & Uniko Studio Sponsorship!

* This is my first post of the day, the next Uniko Studio product introduction post will be live at 9am GMT *


It sure looks to me like you're all having FUN with the TIME OUT Challenges, so many wonderful entries over the past 2 weeks for the last challenge. 

We are back today with the next fortnightly challenge & this time it's a themed challenge with a twist! 

* The THEME is Happy Birthday with an optional TWIST of Masculine *

For all you Uniko Studio fans out there you will be happy to hear that we are sponsoring the challenge this fortnight & there are TWO prizes up for grabs for TWO lucky entrants! The prizes are as follows:

For those who enter the challenge & use the TWIST you could be in the chance of winning a £15 Gift Certificate to spend on the website.


The overall winner of the challenge will receive the Today, Tomorrow & Always Time Clear Stamp Set & Matching Designer Dies Graphic Flowers From Time.

This stamp set & matching dies are perfect for the challenge and so I used them to create a couple of cards to inspire you...

For my first card I decided to use the smallest Graphic Flower and matching die along with a mix and match sentiment from A Gift For You and All Occasion Sentiments #2. I decided to use the current Dynamic Duos challenge colours seen HERE and below to help my mojo along!

I started out by die cutting the 3 graphic florals into a layer of Melon Mambo card, I then temporarily adhered the layer to my card base to be able to line up and stamp the coordinating graphic flower in Hawaiian Shores. After stamping the sentiment I then adhered the panel to the white card base using foam adhesive and finished the flowers off with a matching rhinestone.

I decided to make one more card using the same stamp set this time using the optional twist of a masculine card...

For this card I decided to use the current ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below to help me along. 

I started by stamping the cogs along the left hand side of my white card base using SU! Tangerine Tango ink. I then stamped the pocket watch image onto a white card panel measuring 8.5 X 14 cm in Bermuda Bay ink. The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is stamped in Hawaiian Shores onto a little strip and mounted to the layer using foam adhesive. I added a few Pumpkin Pie candy dots (as I didn't have anything Peach Parfait small enough) and mounted the layer to the card base using foam adhesive.

OK, that's all from me just now, be sure to visit the TIME OUT Challenge blog for all the details and to see what inspiration the rest of the Design Team and Guest Designer have for you. I will be back again today at 9am GMT for the second Uniko Studio April Release product introduction AND it's a good one - a NEW fave of mine!

Until then, thanks for stopping by :)

  1. I love that masculine card very much, and also the time stamps :)

  2. What a great way to show how this set can be used. When I looked at the set I hadn't really flowers, just clocks! So glad you set me straight there! I adore the pink base and that is some cool lining up and the orange strip in the second card really jumps out x

  3. Just shows how versatile that set is with two completely different names. If have to go with the first one if I was pushed... Bit of a sucker for the dynamic duos combo! Will be back later for the uniko peep. 😀

  4. Hi Bev..Both of the cards are great. Love the layout and colours of the first one, what a clever idea. Love the crispness of the second. Clever you xxxx Beverley x

  10. Two absolutely fabulous cards Bev. I love the vertical sentiment on the first one with the fabulous dies and the fun time guy card is awesome!
