A Warm Welcome!

Hello & Happy Monday!

Today I am delighted to be introducing you to the newest member of the Design Team. I am sure that this person will not be a stranger to the majority of Uniko followers and to those who join in on the Uniko and many of the challenges around blog land! 

So without further ado I would like you all to give Carol from justme: c a warm welcome :)

Hello, I’m Carol from *justme: c*.  I’m incredibly honoured and delighted to be joining Bev and her talented designers as a new member of the design team. Indeed, my feet haven’t touched the ground since receiving her invitation; still on Cloud 9 at this dream-come true opportunity to showcase, even more, my love for Uniko products. 

My card-making journey began when I decided to make and send Happy *Month Old* cards to my niece, who was 2 ½ at the time. She’s now 7, my nephew is 5 - and yes, the monthly card ‘tradition’ continues. The ‘epic messes’ of my first attempts sent me searching the internet for ideas and WOW! Did I find them! The discoveries revealed sparked a passion, and here I am, thoroughly immersed in playing with paper, stamps, dies and ink. Of course, the friendships made through this warm, encouraging community are treasured immensely; the inspiration from the many artists I’ve come to know, appreciated deeply. 

My style is predominately CAS (although eclectic is more apt) and oh, how I love my stamps and dies. I’ve recently embarked on coloured pencil online classes; hopefully, what I learn in these lessons will translate into breathing colourful, vibrant life into my Uniko stamps.

When I’m not crafting, you’re most likely to find me at our province’s road bike and cyclo-cross races - clipboard and stop watch in hand – in my role as a racing official.  Even though I don’t race (no way!), I love the thrill of the competitions and being part of the cycling community.

Thank you, Bev and the team, for your warm welcome and for embracing my creativity. I’m looking forward to creating and designing alongside you.

If you are unfamiliar with Carol's style, here are a selection of cards Carol has made to inspire you using a variety of Uniko clear stamps...

These two beauties feature Beautiful Blooms I and matching dies, All Occasion Sentiments #6 and the top card Background Blocks: Halftone.

This card features Originally Organic and matching dies and I am just digging the watercolour brush background on this card. 

How about a fabulous masculine creation to inspire you?! This card uses Explosion! Explosion Additions and Background Blocks: Halftone.

Lastly and by no means least, how about Carol's cute side...

How fabulous are these? I am sure you'll be as excited as myself to have Carol part of the team and are looking forward to seeing the inspiration she has to offer. For more details on these creations and to see more of Carol's work be sure to head on over HERE.

Thank you & welcome Carol!
