Uniko Brand Ambassador Inspiration : Set of Christmas cards & tags

Hi there!

Today I am sharing inspiration over at Uniko Studio for making quick and CAS Christmas cards with matching tags.

I chose the non traditional color combination of black, white and gold , but I think the design will look great in traditional colors too ! 

I used my Silhouette cameo to cut out a basic tree shape (welded a triangle and small square together) and filled the negative space with five different non Christmas background . To finish off the cards I used a Christmas sentiment and different gold embellishments.

As I was left with the positive tree shapes, I decided to use it as coordinating tags with the different cards. No waste !

Lots of photos to follow 😃

I am starting with my favorite of the bunch :

Altenew November 2020 Challenge

 Hi there!

Time to share my card for this month's Altenew Challenge

Layout inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches.

I smiled when I read Erum's post about the source of inspiration for her card, because I also love looking for inspiration in my closet (check out my label in the side bar - closet inspired)... and when I find a piece of clothing or shoes I really love, I usually buy it in all... or at least three of the colors available 😄

I don't own any Altenew stamps or dies with a tropical theme, so I went looking for anything remotely looking like any of the elements in the inspiration. One of the leaves from the Happy Bloom set, were the closest I could get to create the look, so here is my CAS , graphic take on the challenge :

I used :

  • Happy bloom stamp-set
  • Label-love stamp set
  • Snowing BG stamp
  • Altenew inks in Sapphire, Ruby Red , Coral Berry and Lagoon
  • Enamel dots
  • Foam squares for dimension
  • Misti 
  • Silhouette cameo to cut out the images 

Challenges :

Color Hues Challenge #6

 Hi there!

Back again for this week's Color Hues Challenge inspiration!


The team has amazing inspiration for you this week. I wanted to use the colors for a non traditional Christmas card, but the colors made the decision for me... they kept on whispering... ice cream ... So I went that direction !

I used :

  • "You are so sweet" Cutting file from the Silhouette store #267812
  • Zig Zag cutting file from my library
  • Scraps of pink , brown and Kraft card stock
  • Acetate
  • Foam squares for dimension

 I hope to see you play along... which direction will you go with pink and brown ?!

Thanks for visiting me today :)
