Instagram Hop with Uniko and Funky Fossil

Hi, Uniko and Funky Fossil DTs are getting together to share some new Christmas designs in an Instagram hop! Here are a couple of examples that I shared over on Instagram, @sportyjules56.

My first uses a Funky Fossil stencil and gnome image from Nordic Noel and a Uniko sentiment from the up coming release.

I simply added Ranger Texture paste through the stencil onto kraft card, coloured and fussy cut my gnome and added the sentiment on a red die cut banner using Versamark and heat embossed with white EP. Two white, die cut panels on a scrap of card, were wrapped with red butcher's twine, then the stamped and heat embossed sentiment panel and gnome were added. The gnome was added and the whole attached over the trimmed down kraft background on an A6 white card base. 

My second card uses a Uniko stamp set and a Funky Fossil sentiment.

This is actually part of a panel I made for the upcoming Uniko September release. On a panel of dark blue card I stamped the hillside in Versamark and heat embossed with white EP. The snow stamp, part of the Uniko BB Winter Wonderland set, was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with more white EP around the trees and deer and then a second row stamped upside down. Any glaring gaps were filled in with a Versamark pen and more EP! 
The remaining panel was trimmed down to a square and the sentiment from FF Nordic Noel stamped and heat embossed with white EP, nestles neatly in the bottom right of the trimmed down panel. My blue panel was mounted on silver mirror card and then glued flat onto a white square base card.

The rest of the girls cards can be found on Instagram at:-
