Introducing… Block Party Christmas

Introducing… Block Party Christmas


I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the October 2017 product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 5 clear stamp sets being released and NOW it is time for the Design Team and I to introduce them to you.

Today, myself and my AWESOME Design Team are introducing the next in the Block Party series, Block Party Christmas.

Just like Block Party Birthday, the stamp is one BIG block, measuring 9.5 x 13 cm and it is a style of Subway Art. You might recognise some images from previously released and now retired clear stamp sets.

I kept my first card here really simple and hopefully letting the stamp take centre stage?! I simply stamped (a whole bunch) the image in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and set it aside to dry. I then decided to give my new trio of Distress Oxide inks and outing and created a simple ink blended background. To finish the card off I went and added glitter to most of the open images/words using my Quickie glue pen and Stampin’ Up glitter. I also added some small dots to the snowflakes for good measure 😉

For my last card today (which I nearly didn’t share as it isn’t my best make), I decided to do some heat embossing…

Again I used my MISTI tool to stamp the image in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed the image in Gold EP. I then trimmed the image to use just a small section of the block.

In hindsight I wish that I had kept it at that, but I decided to mess on and die cut a small Designer Die Snowflake (more details on these on Monday, unless you’ve been following me on Instagram/Facebook) and added some gold heat embossing to that too!

That’s all from me today using this stamp, but be sure to hop along all the Design Team blogs and leave a comment along the way, as you never know you might just win a random prize (in September random prizes were added to various release day orders). I know for sure that you won’t be disappointed the Design Team have created a bountiful wealth of inspiration 🙂

    This really does show how versatile this stamp is. I love the warm, soft tones and touch of glitter on your first card, but I think it’s the elegant black, white, and gold that is stunning! xx

    Who would think to use part of the image?…not me of course… and the CAS card you have created is stunning Bev. Love the ink blending on your first card too…adds to the party feel and of course all the sparkle…much required. xx

    Love the inking on your first card!!! And using just part of the image—like you did on your second card—is a brilliant idea!

    Love this Christmas block
    stamp! Your cards are
    lovely. Maybe add some
    bling to the second card
    if you don’t like it.

    Simply delicious cards Bev and like you I love that combo of DI’s in picked raspberry, peacock feathers, mustard seed and spiced marmalade. Looks luscious and fabulous with the block party stamp. Clever little window design too on the second one and teamed with the returning snowflakes. Full of festive sparkle too … what more can a girl ask for!!!

    Oh, very nice combo of colors for this first card! 😉 It highlights this stamp very beautifully and even more with the touches of glitter! I love your second card with this very chic and elegant look (even with the snowflake!). Love it ! xx

    I love the block stamp.
    You get a great card without a
    lot of extra stamping.
    thanks for sharing.

    Whoa!! Love the first card with that colorful background and the assortment of images – this is a winner in my book! And I adore the classic color combination of your second card (so excited to see you getting back into the die game too!). 🙂
