Uniko Studio Challenge and Ren-Yi's Surprise Bridal Shower

Good Afternoon,

I am a wee bit late with my post today.  I keep having on and off computer problems, so getting posts ready is proving to be a tad problematic at times.

However better late than never, so first up is my card for this month's Uniko Studio Challenge which is 'Special Occasions' and what is more special than a new baby.

Supplies Used:
Uniko Studio - Sweet Baby
Avery Elle - DP
Twine from my stash

The Challenge Rules:
  • Winners will be announced by September 17th
  • Please add the Uniko Studio Challenge badge & link back to the challenge 
  • If you don't have a blog to link back to the challenge, don't worry. Just use "USC"+<challenge number> as your tag. For example, for the second challenge "USC2" and upload it to a gallery. Or send Beverley an email ( and she will add your entry for you.
  • Showcase any Uniko Studio product: clear stamps, dies, digital pattern paper, digital cut files, or digital stamps. If you haven't purchased any Uniko Studio products, fear not. Plenty of freebies here.
  • You can enter more than once as long as it is a new project each time! 
The Prizes:
  • A £20 Gift Certificate to the Winner & Guest Design Team spot on the blog for the next challenge
  • Top Three Spotlight & £5 Gift Certificate 

Next up is my card for my fellow design team member's surprise Bridal Shower.  Ren Yi is getting married on the 22nd August, so Beverely is hosting a bridal shower so we can all send our congratulations.

Supplies Used:
Uniko Studio - All Ocassions Sentiments #5
Uniko Studio - Flower Power #6
Clearly Besotted - Leafy Accents

If you have been taking the current online card class you will see my card was inspired by Kristina Werners gorgeous vellum card from day 10.

Thank you so much for visiting


  1. Stunning cards as always Gillian. Love the both but particularly the baby one. Xx

  2. Two stunning cards & such a wonderful take on Kristina's technique, such an elegant result :) Thanks for joining in on the Bridal Shower for Ren-Yi, she will love your card. Hugs Bev x

  3. Gillian, both cards are sweet, Gillian. I love the vellum overlay on Ren-Yi's card :)
