Two For Tuesday & a WINNER!

 Hello & Happy Tuesday ๐Ÿ˜Š 

I'm back today with another Two For Tuesday to share with you, but first I have the randomly selected comment winner to announce from the recent June 2021 Stencil Release, Brand Ambassador Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY we had HERE.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to join in on the hop and for all the lovely comments left. Thank you also for all the wonderful orders, I look forward to seeing Uniko stencil creations pop up on social media.

So, without further ado let's get to the winner. I used a random number generator to select the lucky comment after I went through and totted up. AND the lucky comment is...

Hi Bev. I just love what you have done with the Pure Floral Rose and with the Butterfly. Gorgeous colours and so skilled colouring. Can’t really decide which of them would be my fav if I had to choose – luckily I don’t have to. I’m so happy I found your products and this blog. At the moment I have only one big gorgeous Uniko stamp but when I need to refill my stash I know where to find what I need. Regards, Tiina a.k.a tweety.cardworld (on IG).

Congratulations Tiina! 

Please send me an email (bev@uniko.co.uk) no later than10th July 2021, with your postal address to claim your prize.

Okay, now for some creative eye candy! 

Today I decided to ink up English Country Garden Butterflies clear stamps & dust of the coordinating Designer Dies too to create two cards. Both have a CAS feel to them but I've used colour in different ways on them.

For this first card I thought it would be fun to double up the large & small butterflies. I rarely reach to stamp on coloured card these days, so reached for my favourite trio of colours in my scraps box and got to stamping & die cutting. I added a little contrast by stamping the smaller butterfly on white card.

I haven't been one to jump fully on board with the slimline card, but in order to fit 3 larger butterflies on a card the slimline style was perfect. I added sentiments from the Simply Said Blocks series and some eagle eyes might notice something on this card?! 

Next up I wanted to use the butterflies more as and accent to a sentiment. It's been ages since I inked up BIG & BOLD Hello and it seemed the perfect choice. 

The bold hello is inked and heat embossed in clear sparkling embossing powder. I then stamped the trio of large butterflies and selectively coloured them in three colours using three shades of each colour. Super quick and simple colouring. 

I finished off this almost one layer card with an accompanying sentiment from BIG & BOLD Hello stamped and embossed in white, popped up with foam adhesive and a trio of rhinestones. 

It's been lovely inking up and playing with these older Uniko stamps & Designer Dies again. That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by today.
