Uniko - Wonky Outline Stripes .....

.... Hi! It's day four of our Uniko introductions and I've made a really fun card with the new Background Blocks Wonky Outline Stripes:

Stamps: Uniko - Background Blocks Wonky Outline Stripes, Classic Alphabet, Uniko Style, Festive Sentiments
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Versamark; Gina K - Black Onyx
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Vellum; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Embossing Powder - Clear and White

I really like the new wonky outline stripes - they are so useful and can be used for just about anything. I used the block stamp to create the border on this card - it's slightly smaller than the width of the card but so easy to extend. I coloured it with Copic markers and then restamped the image and embossed with clear powder. I cut the panel to size and layered it onto black card. I used the alphabet set to make my word 'BOO', stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder. I finished the front by adding some little ghosts. They were made by using the outline stamp in Uniko Style and the eyes are the smaller centre, I embossed them all with clear powder and carefully cut them out. I added colour to the back of two and added lots of sparkle to the front with a clear Wink of Stella brush. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel added another coloured border. The greeting was made from the smaller stamps in the Festive Sentiments and I added another little ghost.

I used the colours from this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#426 and the layout is based on the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#243.

I didn't manage to do a post for yesterday's introduction of Background Blocks Falling Snowflakes as I hadn't finished my card. It's done now and here it is:

Stamps: Uniko - Background Block Falling Snowflakes, Big and Bold Snow, Most Wonderful
Inks: Kaleidacolour - Blue Breeze; Versamark; Gina K - Black Onyx
Dies: Poppy Stamps - Grand Madison Window
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Early Espresso

I thought it would be fun to make a window looking out to the falling snow. I stamped the snowflakes on some white card using the Kaleidacolour pad to create ombre snow. I die cut the window frame from brown card, stamped on part of the greeting and then adhered it over the stamped snowflakes.  I stamped the rest of the greeting on the card base and adhered the window with some dimensional tape. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of brown card and on the white panel added lots more snowflakes and a Christmas greeting.

Two fab cards...I like your window idea with the place to be behind a window when it snows! and I think your use of the new background stamp is very clever.

I just love how you've made your ghosts Deb's! That's so ingenious! Fun, neat and teamed with a wonky stripe border in autumn tones is just fab! Great idea to use the window frame for over the snowflakes too! Super Christmastime scene!

What a great use of the wonky stripes for Halloween colors! Love the black border you added on top on the front of the card as it really makes the border pop even more.

Your second card is just beautiful with the snow falling as you look out the window. Great way to place the sentiment too!
