Celebrating 12 Years – Introducing… Background Blocks MOD Builder

Celebrating 12 Years – Introducing… Background Blocks MOD Builder

Happy Weekend 😃


Welcome to Day 4 and the last of the 12th Birthday/February Release product introductions. This release we are adding to Uniko’s ever popular Mid Century Modern Collection, along with our unique Ink & Flip Stencil series, which we kicked things off with HERE


For the last two days we have introduced the two additions Mid Century Modern Collection, Mid Century Modern Birthday and Mid Century Modern Everyday Sentiments.


Today we are introducing a new addition to the Background Blocks series and a design you will recognise from a previously released stencil design, MOD Background Builder


Let’s have a look at this in action…

This new Background Block is designed just like its Stencil version. In that you can stamp an instant focal point, but that it can be moved to create a full seamless pattern.

For this first card stamped the block in the centre of my card and then I stamped in the upper right and lower left to create a diagonal pattern.

I then coloured selected parts with a trio of Copic Markers inspired by Uniko brand colours. To finish I added the large Birthday Wishes heat embossed with Stardust EP and adhered using foam tape, along with a trio of enamel dots.

Next I wanted to show an all over look with a masculine feel, which I feel I have achieved with my colour choice.

When I know I am going to fill the whole area, I start in the middle and work outwards filling the pattern. Once I had coloured the panel I used a circle die to die cut a window for my sentiment.

I used the HAPPY from Mid Century Modern Wreath Builder and the BIRTHDAY from Mid Century Modern Everyday Sentiments.

For my final card today I wanted to combine the stamp with the stencil. This card is totally inspired by one made by Hannelie, Brand Ambassador Alumni.

I started by stamping the block to hang off either edge of my card. Once dry I used the stencil the same way to add the colour. Again inspired by Uniko brand colours.

I finished the card simply with the Thank You sentiment from Mid Century Modern Everyday Sentiments and a trio of enamel dots.

If after that awesome hop, you want or *need* a closer look at this clear stamp set. Why not join me over on YouTube HERE this afternoon for a demo of this newness.


This clear stamp set, along with all the products being introduced this week will be available 9am GMT Sunday 18th January 2024.

    This design really reminds me of growing up in the 1970’s. A perfect bit of nostalgia for me. Wonderful cards and release
