September Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

* This is my second post of the day, click HERE for my TIME OUT Challenge Card *


I'm SO happy you've stopped by the blog today as today is the September 2014 Design Team Blog Hop.  As we've quite a few new followers here, ("Hello & Thank you") I will explain what's going on! 

Here at Uniko Studio I currently only release new products every other month. This is for a number of reasons, firstly, being an avid paper crafter myself and knowing the current economic climate I know 'some' are on a limited budget when it comes to buying new stash, so this way you're not tempted to splurge too much every month. The second reason is that it is just me here at Uniko Studio HQ. I currently run this little business single handedly, designing, blogging, demoing, classes, packing etc, etc. so releasing every other month gives me chance to keep my head above water, well, just about!

So, on the in-between release months the Design Team & I take a look back at a previously released product, dust it off and give it some love! This month I decided to dust off the previously released Peace On Earth clear stamp set which was released HERE.

Here are a couple of old FAVES using the set....

How about a new card using this set...

There are a couple of things that I really love about this set. Firstly I love the 'traditional modern' Christmas feel it has and secondly I love being able to add glitter to the dove to make it sparkle!

Above you can see the sparkle on the dove :) I kept the colour scheme neutral letting the sentiment and image take the focus. The snowflake background is from Background Builders: Christmas.

To inspire you more there is a whole bunch of cards HERE on the Uniko Studio Peace On Earth Pinterest board.

And how about some inspiration from the FABulous Design Team:

How about a GIVEAWAY...?

Happy Hopping!

  12. Some wonderful ideas and inspiration for using this set from all the design team, not just different designs combining other products but also many different occasions that this set could be used for. Of your cards I especially like the first card with the vellum wrap but thinking about it also like the clean modern design of number three too! Many congratulations on the birth of your twin boys - bet they're keeping you busy. The start of term has been quite busy for me too so not had a chance to catch up with your blog lately! Stef
