Introducing…Background Blocks Cogs, Background Blocks Splatters and Everyday Sentiments

 Hello & Happy Hump Day!

Welcome to Day 1 of the 10th Birthday February 2022 Release product introductions. Myself and the Uniko Brand Ambassadors are here to cheer up your mid week with some fabulous creative inspiration.

Today we are introducing three new stamp sets that I am sure you will want to add to your Uniko collection, Background Blocks Cogs, Background Blocks Splatters and Everyday Sentiments.

I am delighted to be adding to this growing series of Background Blocks and especially ones that lend themselves to masculine makes. The addition of these sentiments open up so many options too. The ways the Brand Ambassadors have used these are genius and inspiring, so be sure to hop along with us. You can find the start of the hop HERE.

All the products will be available for purchase at 10am GMT Sunday 27th February 2022.

Okay, lets get to the good stuff!

My first card today uses Background Builders Cogs and I built my sentiment using Everyday Sentiments.

I started by stamping the cog block onto my Concord & 9th Mushroom card stock base in VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink. I then stamped it again onto white card and fussy cut a few of the cogs out.

The mix of sentiments are heat embossed embossed onto a strip of PTI Smokey Slate card and adhered using foam adhesive. I’ve then scattered the fussy cut cogs and added some Nuvo Drops in Gloss Ebony.

For my second card I used Background Blocks Splatter. I started by inking the background with a mix of Concord & 9th Sorbet and Honeysuckle.

I then accented my card with the two balloons from Balloon Bash and another sentiment from Everyday Sentiments. This time some White Blizzard Glitter Nuvo Drops to finish.

Next I wanted to show how both these ‘masculine’ orientated backgrounds can be feminised. So I created two matching cards, just switching out the background.

It’s been ages since I last inked up Beautiful Blooms III, so I chose this as my floral. I used the same Concord & 9th ink colours for both cards, Ballet Slipper, Sorbet & Honeysuckle for the flower. Sprout, Parsley, Clover & Evergreen for the backgrounds & foliage.

After fussy cutting the stamped floral I adhered it to my card using foam adhesive. I added then stamped the Thank You sentiment from Everyday Sentiments and a few enamel dots to finish.

I then repeated everything for this second card, though I did switch up the sentiment layout and enamel dot placement.

I can’t decide which I like best as they both turned out really pretty! That’s all from me today using these three products. I will be back tomorrow with more to share.

    So fabulous Bev! I love how crisp and fresh your first card looks. The more feminine designs are gorgeous and I love the ombré effect on both background stamps. X

    Always amazed to see how YOU showcase your own products and today is no exception. I LOVE your first card, so striking on black. And what a great idea to mix the new background blocks together with this pretty flower. Beautiful !
