Round in circles meets Awesomely Artistic…


 School holidays are under way here. Yesterday we had a visit to the dentist for Ms 15, Ms 10 and me. Ms 15 and I had a seal on a tooth each and I had to have a filling replaced as it had fallen out and I hadn’t noticed! My dentist’s father had put the original filling in when I was much younger. Today was a trip to the orthodontist for Ms 15 to check her plate. I think that is all the necessary stuff sorted so we should be able to enjoy the rest of the break.

Anyway you didn’t visit today to hear about our dental visits.

Today I am sharing a card I have made using a mix of stamp sets.

I wanted to get another masculine card made for my stash – I think I will have a few more boy birthdays soon.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #3 here

SIP Color Challenge 3


Through the craft room door challenge here



Virginia’s View Challenge #16 here

I had the Uniko stamp set Background Builders Round in Circles, SU Smoky slate and Real red inks on my desk with Island Indigo ink when I saw the SIP challenge. I switched the Island Indigo for Bermuda bay and added the new set of SU Awesomely Artistic and the Uniko Studio Classic Numbers sentiment.

Here is my card

uniko round in circles (640x466)

I mounted the main panel onto SU real red cardstock. I have kept most of the stamping to the bottom 2/3.

Going round in circles…



I used Uniko Background builders Round in Circles stamped using Stampin UP! Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray and PTI Enchanted Evening to create my card front. I stamped the sentiment from Uniko Fontiments Birthday ( I did a little surgery on one of the stamps to get the “your”) in Momento Tuxedo Black.

A little different to most of my other posts lately. I do need to get a few birthday cards ready – I have several birthdays before the jolly man arrives. Earlier today I went window shopping at a Christmas store – the trees and decorations were amazing – some inspiration for some more Christmas cards I think.

Let’s Celebrate…

I am linking the following cards upto the challenges at Grab button for Uniko Studio Challenge

Uniko Challenge #3 – use Washi tape


Moxie Fab – use washi tape or stickers

I have made a set of 4 cards.


I used washi tape from My Mind’s Eye, Uniko Stamp Sets Background Builders Round in Circles and Fontiments Birthday along with 1 1/8″ circle punch and Stampin UP! ornament punch. I used a fine tip pen to create the bauble strings and added sequins, bling and wink of stella Clear to add some sparkle.

Here are a few more pics







It was the Footy Grand Final here today. Hope your team won!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend



Birthday Butterflies…

A little something for Miss A (8) to take to her party next week.


I have used Uniko Round in Circles stamped in SU Melon Mambo along the base of my card front. I die cut 3 butterflies using Uniko butterfly die in glitter paper. The sentiment is from Uniko Fontiments Birthday stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and punched out using SU Artisan Label Punch and layered onto scrap of pink using the same punch.

Boiled Lollies and curves!….


The challenge at the Lollipop Ladies is Boiled Lollies and curves #69.  I have taken this litterally – what do you think?

I have used Uniko Background builders Round in Circles stamped using SU Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry to create my own paper.  I die cut a circle using Lifestyle Crafts nesting circles. In the space created I stamped ABS Boy’s Party.

With the little stripes left from trimming my paper I made these gift tags using PTI Tag Sale Die #1 and twine.


If you have a chance pop on over to the Lollipop Ladies and take part in the challenge.

Thanks for taking a look.



Case this


I used Uniko Background builders Round in Circles and SU Lucky Limeade to stamp the background. I used three butterflies from Uniko Bright Butterflies die and stamp set stamped in SU Real Red.  The middle butterfly is stamped with WPlus9 Country Charm. The sentiment is from Uniko Pure Florals Chrysanthemum stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

You can tell it was a bright and sunny morning when I took this pic – the butterflies popped up with foam tabs are casting a bit of a shadow!

I am linking this card up to the CAS(E) this sketch challenge this week.
