[Uniko Studio] Challenge No. 1 - Say Hello

Hi everyone! We have a special new feature at Uniko Studio. We're going to bring you a monthly challenge. It occurs every 18th of the month and goes until every 14th of the following month. We'll see if anyone bites and how popular this will get, but we wanted to give the loyal Uniko Studio fans an outlet to showcase their awesome designs.

This week we're starting off with something appropriate: Say Hello. You should be hopping over here from Nicki's talented creation. Yep, we thought it was time to get to know you and for you to get to know us. So every DT will be posting a random fact about themselves on the blog. We hope you will also join us and post a random fact about yourself!

In the meantime, this is my inspiration for you...

Stamps: (Beautiful Blooms I) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft) Papertrey Ink; (Coconut Grove Add-on Kit: pattern paper) Studio Calico
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 2 Cough Syrup; No. 5 Chicken Feed) Ranger
Embellishments: (Alphabet Stickers - White) Kelly Purkey; (Coconut Grove Add-on Kit: (Lime Green Twine Hemp Cord) Hemptique) Studio Calico

This is just another quick creation using whatever supplies I have handy, which is rather limiting. It is possible to put something together, and I'm starting to like this restriction of supplies. It keeps me true to some basic techniques, such as stamping and relying on my scissor skills, and supplies that have been coming in. No embossing (wet or dry), no glitter or stickles, no gloss pens, no color pencils, no markers, no mists or templates. Oh - who am I kidding, I do miss my stuff!


This is just a quick card. I stamped the Beautiful Blooms I onto some pattern paper. I used the colors from the pattern paper as inspiration and decided to stick with two colors - red & orange. The orange gives it a nice pop, doesn't it? The green banner and hemp cord was inspired by the light green hue in the pattern paper. A quick sentiment made out of stickers and it's done.

Do you guys know Haribo Gold Gummy Bears? This card kind of reminds me of the colors. This is relevant because of my random fact. When I grab a few out, I like to eat those that I grab in the order of Yellow, Orange, White, Green, Red. For some reasons I really like the way the white, green and red taste best.

Anyways, that's all I have for you. Off you go to Stacey...
