Introducing… Alphabet Outlined & Background Blocks Arts Décoratifs
Welcome to Day 1 of the February 2020 & 8th Birthday Release product introductions.
Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE where I have shared a little bit more about todays clear stamp sets & you will also find the links to all the Uniko Brand Ambassador blogs.
Today we are introducing two new clear stamp sets, Alphabet Outlined AND Background Blocks Arts Décoratifs. So how about some inspiration using these new stamps.
Alphabet Outlined features such a fun modern font and I wanted to create a fun and colourful first card using the alphabet. This is what I came up with.
I’ve seen similar cards on Pinterest using alphabet stamps as flowers and I thought I would create my own version using the stem from Flower Power #6.
I love how colourful the letters spelling ‘Hello’ turned out. I used Catherine Pooler Midnight ink to stamp the letters and used Copic markers to colour them in. I have then fussy cut them out.
I stamped the stem from Flower Power #6 onto my white card base and I altered the height of them so that I could fit 5 across my 10.5 cm wide card. As some of the stems at the bottom needed to be slightly longer, I used the top part of the stem on the stamp to stamp a second time to make it longer.
I trimmed the top of my white card and adhered it to a Lime Green card base and it looks like the flowers are growing out of the grass. The letters are adhered using foam adhesive and the ‘sunshine’ sentiment is from a stamp set we are introducing later this week.
Lastly for today I have a card using Background Blocks Arts Décoratifs. This is such a fun stamp to use for a focal point, but it also works for an all over design.
One of the things I love about the Art Deco style is the gold lines, angles and geometric designs. The image below from the Collins English Dictionary, is an example of the design which inspired my stamp design and also my card using it.
I decided to create a one layer card and instead of using black, which is common in Art Deco, I reached for a Denim Blue.
I used VersaMark ink to stamp the block onto my card base & it was fairly easy to line up and create equal spaces between stamping the blocks to fill the card. I then heat embossed with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Regular EP.
The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment is from a stamp set that we will be introducing tomorrow! It is designed to work with this stamp as much as the ones you will see tomorrow.
That’s all I have to share with you today using these new stamp sets, but I know my Brand Ambassadors have so much more to show you! Next on the hop is Carol, be sure to hop along and comment along the way. I will be randomly selecting comments left this week to win some prizes!
