Good morning all,
Welcome to the Uniko 10th Birthday February 2022 Reveal, Release, Brand Ambassador Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!!
So, no procrastinating today, straight into the product reveals and more of my cards using them.
Background Blocks Cogs:
My first card (here) was a masculine design so for today's card I have gone feminine and used a sentiment from the BIG & BOLD You stamp set (also on this release) that struck a cord with me:
Next up we have Background Blocks Splatters:
If you were here
earlier in the week you will remember that I made two cards with this stamp, one that looked like a coffee spillage and one that might result from a really big sneeze...! Well today's card is inspired by what my husband saw when he looked at the stamp, land and sea. It is teamed with Uniko Nautical Treasures stamp
set and Uniko Everyday Sentiments stamp set (see below).
Some very useful sentiments included in the Everyday Sentiments stamp set and as you can see, I've used lots throughout the Introductions and on my cards today.
Next an addition to the BIG & BOLD series in the form of BIG & BOLD You stamp set which I have teamed with the Flower Power #7 stencil and mask set for my next card (below):
I used all three of the Flower Power #7 masks to leave a white floral area and ink blended around them. The large size of the BIG & BOLD You sentiment made a perfect partner for this background and I found the little circle configurations very useful for infilling and adding interest to the card.
Now for some more Fun Flowers fun with the Fun Flowers stencil and mask set which I have again teamed with the re-introduced Fun Flowers stamp set.
I love the addition of the masks with this stencil because it enabled me to overlap the florals without it resulting in a muddy mix of colour. I used acrylic paper here which seems to give the Distress Oxides a really bright and fresh finish. I added some detail by using the Fun Flowers stamps.
This card is similar to my introduction card (here
) but this time I fussy cut the florals and added them to an orange background (because the other card wasn't nearly 70's enough!) using foam pads, before adding a sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments set.
The final Fun Flowers addition is the Fun Flowers Spray stencil and mask, which I think has a very elegant look about it.
I used both the mask and stencil to ink the inner parts with Versamark ink before removing the stencil and inking the outer edge. I added the gold embossing powder and set with a heat gun before fussy cutting leaving a gold edge. I adhered this to a black card blank with a slightly shorter front than back and added acetate for the bottom section, which is seen better in the next photo.
Last, but by no means least, we have the Framed Balloons stamp:
This is such a fun stamp and here I have used only the top part where I have repeat stamped and coloured before layering up with foam pads. It's sort of a decoupage effect.
Well wow! What another fantastic release from Bev and Uniko.
