Introducing… Background Blocks Grid and Background Blocks Diagonal Stripe

Introducing… Background Blocks Grid and Background Blocks Diagonal Stripe

 Hello & Happy Tuesday!

I am so glad you have popped by today as it is the first of the July 2021 Release product introductions. Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the start of the hop.

Today myself and my awesome Brand Ambassadors have an inspiring blog hop and we are introducing Background Blocks Grid and Background Blocks Diagonal Stripe. I am delighted to be expanding this series of stamps with another couple of simple, but fun designs.

First up, let me introduce you to Background Blocks Diagonal Stripe…

For this card I used my stamping tool, masking and a rainbow of colours to get this fun effect. It was a little time consuming, but the results are fun. I couldn’t resist giving you a peek some other things being introduced later this week.

An addition to the Simply Said Blocks series and do you recognise the flowers?

Next up is an abstract kind of card using the Background Block Grid. This was another pretty time consuming design, but again I think it is super striking.

I randomly stamped the block on my base card and then I coloured in alternate squares to create a checkerboard / gingham pattern. I added the BIG & BOLD Happy die cut and another new Simply Said Blocks III sentiment.

That’s all I have to share today using these two new stamps, but there is so much more inspiration on the Brand Ambassador blogs. Be sure to hop along and leave a comment. I will be randomly selecting comments left in the lead up to Release Day on 25th July to win Uniko goodies! 

I hope you pop back tomorrow for the next of the product introductions.

      Beautiful cards Bev. I love the rainbow diagonal stripes. The background grid card reminds me of Formula 1 racing! Great for a masculine card. X
