Introducing… Block Party Birthday

Introducing… Block Party Birthday

YAY!

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. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 5 clear stamp sets being released and NOW it is time for the Design Team and I to introduce them to you.

Today starting over HERE we are introducing a new to Uniko style of stamp called Block Party. The first stamp in this series is appropriately named Block Party Birthday.
I was having a ball with this stamp set over the weekend and made a few cards to share with you. I seem to have gone down more of a masculine route too with the colours and styles. This stamp also lent itself to me stepping away from my usual CAS style for more of a mix media styled cards…

First up I decided to go for a chalkboard effect (looks like I wasn’t the only one). I started by stamping the image twice (using the MISTI tool) with VersaMark ink. I then heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Detail True White EP. I then ran my white ink pad down all four sides of the one layer card and I also brushed some white ink across the panel to achieve a dustier/slightly distress look.

Next I was inspired by DT member Deborah’s inspiration post HERE and FINALLY dusted off my Brusho’s! These have been stored away for over 6 years, I last used them at Uni! Anyway, this is the result…

I started with an A5 piece of watercolour card and I used a large brush to cover the paper with water. I then chose a selection of Brusho colours, Lime Green, Ost. Blue, Crimson and Violet and using a smaller brush I simply lightly flicked the colour onto the paper and let the water work the magic. After I added all the colours I did go back a flick some more water randomly to make some of the colours mix better.

After leaving it to completely dry I again used my MISTI to stamp the image in VersaFine Onyx Black ink a few times to get a crisp image. I am super pleased with how this turned out and will definitely be using them again soon ūüėČ

Lastly I decided to go for another rainbow card…

For this one I dusted off my Mini Distress Inks and simply inked the stamp up yellow to turquoise and letting the colours overlap. So quick, easy and a multitude of colour options!

    Wow Bev, love all 3 . I am yet to try the embossing with these, out of ink. I love the chalkboard one, and the brusho bg looks fun, but it’s the last card which I love the most.

    Your assortment of fabulous showcases of this new stamp has me over-the-moon delighted! Versatility galore! Love seeing some of my ‘old’ favourite images (the balloon, candles and present) nestled inside the eye-catching, celebration-all-over subway art design! Thank you for the smiles today!
