Introducing… Background Blocks Halftone

Introducing… Background Blocks Halftone


I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the February & 5th Birthday product release are well underway. Yesterday the Design Team and I introduced Originally Organic Additions and on Monday Block Party Birthday. If you missed them you can catch up HERE and HERE.

Today we are back to introduce you to another new style clear stamp series called Background Blocks. They are what they say, simply a block of yummy pattern!

The first in this series is due to my LOVE of Pop Art and Roy Litchenstien, plus the modern pop art trend is making a come back this year! This stamp along with tomorrows clear stamp set pairs wonderfully with the previously released Explosion! clear stamp set, as you saw over on the Uniko blogspot blog.

As I promised, here are a couple of samples of how Background Blocks Halftone can be paired with florals…

Firstly I decided to pair the halftone pattern with perhaps my favourite sentiment and two stamps from Originally Organic Additions!

I started by stamping the halftone pattern in Lawn Fawn ink and then used my new Stampin’ Up! largest stitched frame Framelits die to cut the square. I then stamped the sentiment and floral image in VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Once it was all dry and assembled onto my card base I added some Crystal Nuvo to some of the flower and leaves. I also filled in sections of the ‘double’ leaves to cover a little area where I didn’t get a clean stamped image.
My last card uses Originally Organic paired with Originally Organic Additions with a little Halftone feature…

I used my MISTI tool to stamp the finest part of the Halftone along the edge of a white CS panel in Lawn Fawn Merman ink. I then stamped the stem and leaves from Originally Organic and the flower buds and sentiment from Originally Organic Additions.

    Love this stamp Bev. I especially like the way you’ve used it as a side border but it lends itself to so many things.
