Uniko Challenge #24


Finally, I am back in the UK after a few holidays and visits to family which have been fab.  I have really been looking forward to getting back to crafting though and probably need to start thinking about Christmas crafting too :)

However, today I am here with our latest challenge over at Uniko Studio which is a theme of summer with the optional twist of using this great photo inspiration:

It was just crying out for the gorgeous house from Home Sweet Home which I combined with the hearts banner from Garlands Galore.

I simply stamped and heat embossed the house and masked it to ink the sky and sun behind it.  I added a die cut heart to the house along with the garlands to reflect all of the heart elements in the photo.

We have fabulous GDs joining us for this challenge....Darnell from DJkardkreations and Wiebke from Komma Designed.  Darnell obviously needs no introduction other than to say that her blog is the most fun and welcoming place in blogland (and the cards aren't bad either!) and Wiebke's blog is full of inspiring creations.  The rest of the fab DT have lots of ideas to share with you too.

I look forward to seeing how you are inspired by the photo!

As my card features masking I will also link up at AAA Cards and at Happy Little Stampers which both have masking inspired challenges at the moment :)

Thanks as always for stopping by,
