Uniko Studio - Joyful Butterfly.




Oooh hello Blogger's.............things are pretty quite around here.  Sorry the old blog has really taken a back seat these past few weeks.  The house has pretty much taken over my time, still we are coming along......gone are most of the 'wild' colours with the furniture back in place.  I thought I had the window covering sorted for the lounge and master bedroom only to receive a quote of $20,000 + !!!!!  After I picked myself up of the floor if was back to the drawing board, a little disappointed but determined to find an alternative.  Happy to report that I've found just about the same for less than half the price (truly) and as of today they are on order... yeah!!!!

The focus for the past week has been to pick tiles for the en-suite bathroom that Walshie and I both like :) Not easy......not too girly (shame) or too stark for the boss!   Think....hope...we might have that taken care of today too........Just as well, I don't think I could have faced another round of the same 3 tile shops.  


Today's Card.......

I had a productive day yesterday making a few cards ready for up coming challenges.  I also had a play with some UNIKO STUDIO Digital papers and images.  Have you checked out the site in the UK? New, with some lovely clear stamp sets but also some matching digital papers and now Beverley has added some digital images too.  If you're at all interested go take a look as Beverley has a great  50% off SALE running at the moment making it a great time to try  new supplies.  These pretty papers are great to have on the computer ready to print out and the colours are made to match up with SU card stock.......clever!!!

My card uses both digital papers and a beautiful digital butterfly from the set 'Joyful Butterfly'.  I've created a card  blank in a word document and added the tiles (see it's all about tiles with me at the moment :)) of four of the papers with the butterfly image sized down to fit the card front. The sentiment is computer generated too and once printed I trimmed it to sit on a blue card base.  This would be a great way to produce multiple one layer cards really quickly.  I'm thinking change of address,  invitations or thank you cards.

For more inspiration go check the blog HERE.

See you tomorrow, I hope.......it's AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge day.................

I thought you were going to say that tiles had influenced this card design! I'm itching to have a go at some inchie cards now. I love the bright colours of this card and how they are perfectly balanced with the white space.

Although picking out new things for the home can get stressful, it sounds like you are working together well. Yep, those quotes will knock you for a loop, huh?

Love the bright, happy papers you used here, Sue. They printed off beautifully!

Sounds like things are full steam with the reno's. We are about to start replacing 'vertical blinds' and I know it's going to be expensive.... ps Cute CAS design Sue, such a sweet butterfly!

Love the cards. Both Uniko & Annabelle.

I know the joy of doing a house with someone else who has an opinion on colours/textures etc! Good luck.
On the Uniko stamps are they similar to another brand I might know? Just curious - like some of the designs but haven't taken the plunge yet.
