Introducing… Pure Florals: Lily

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the May product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 4 clear stamp sets being released and NOW it is time for the Design Team and I to introduce them to you.

On Wednesday HERE we introduced 2 new Background Block clear stamps and yesterday HERE we introduced a new clear stamp set called Happy Succulents. Be sure to pop by and hop along with the team!

Today we are introducing an addition to the Pure Florals clear stamp set range, Pure Florals: Lily and I have shared a little bit about the designing of this set over HERE at the start of the hop.

With that I have a couple of cards to share using the set…

For this first card I wanted a bright, cheery rainbow background! I started by stamping and masking off the 3 lilies and then used my distress inks and Clarity Stencil Brushes to create the background. I then added a sentiment from Originally Organic and used my PrismaColour Pencils to add a little colour and depth to the flowers.

I’ve one more card to share before I hand you over to the design team and prepare to be WOWed by them, they really have worked wonders with this set and I am jealous of all their colouring skills!

Again I reached for my ink blending tools, something I didn’t think I would do very often and here we are two cards in a row! This time I used Altenew inks and applied them ink a circular motion so the colours radiated from the centre of the Lily.

I stamped the same full Lily onto my base card and created a mat layer using a MFT stitched die. The sentiment is a mix from Pure Florals: Lily and Simply Said.
Ok, that’s all from me, but be sure to hop along the rest of the design team via the links below…

Hi!

Welcome to the May Uniko challenge.  We have another fun challenge HERE this month to spark your creativity…

This is a FUN themed challenge this month is to create a Masculine card.

We have also added in the optional twist of Fathers Day as it is just around the corner.

 You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products.  And, if you do use Uniko, there’s an extra chance to win a prize. There is also an extra chance to win if you TWIST with us too 😉

Email entries welcome, just email a photo of your card to bev@uniko.co.uk and I will add it to the Uniko Flickr gallery and link up!

This month we have another super Guest Designer joining us this month, Tanja from Little Art Cottage.

Hi there, my name is Tanja and I live in Germany with my wonderful husband, two children and three cats. I am addicted to stamping and paper crafting for a while now and I decided to start my own blog www.littleartcottage.blogspot.com in February 2014. I love to find new ways to use my supplies and try new techniques. Coloring and the design of little scenes are my favorite things to do. I love to make people happy with my projects and I sure hope that you will be one of them. I am super excited that I got the chance to be a guest designer at the Uniko Challenge and I can’t wait to see your creations in the gallery.

Tanja was the lucky winner from Challenge #30 and has created this beauty to inspire you…

Please checkout the challenge post HERE too, to see all the inspiration from the awesome Uniko Design Team too.

Ok, so onto my card…

USC#32

As you can see I went for a super CAS one layer card. Nautical Treasures is a perfect stamp set for quick masculine cards and I also wanted to give ink blending a little go again. I certainly need some practice at it 😉

USC#32a

As I have created a one layer card and with my nautical theme, it is also perfect for the current Less is More challenge HERE, which is a one layer week, with an AT SEA theme.
