Introducing… Block Party Summer

Introducing… Block Party Summer

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Welcome to Day 3 of the July 2021 Release Product Introductions. Today we have another inspiring blog hop and we are introducing the next addition to the Block Party series, Block Party Summer.

Inspired by my love of Subway Art, I get to combine fun and trendy fonts with images associated with the theme. Drawing from previously released clear stamp sets adds more versatility too.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the start of the hop. But, lets have a look at what I’ve created today…

For my first card I wanted to keep things simple and I drew on the surf’s up sentiment, thinking of the waves lapping in at the beach. To create the background I created a wavy edge template and used Altenew’s Sea Shore ink collection to ink blend and create this fun backdrop.

I then simply stamped the block over the top in the darkest shade, Emerald. I decided to keep this card a simple one layer. Perfect for mailing out to a friend and sending them some tropical summer beach vibes.

Next I kept to the one layer again, but this time I wanted to chill out with some simple and vibrant colouring…

Here I stamped the block in black ink and simply coloured in the images using Copic Markers. It made for a relaxing evening as I cooled down from the hot day.

Lastly for today I wanted to use the block in a different way and opted for a landscape slimline design.

Here I stamped the block side by side, altering the part of the image that would be shown. I then heat embossed in clear so that it would show up on the Kraft card stock.

I then stamped just the ice cream section 3 times, coloured the images and fussy cut them out to adhere to the card using foam adhesive. The ‘You’re Sweet’ sentiment is from Pure Florals Cosmos.

That’s all from me today using this stamp, but be sure to hop along around the Brand Ambassador blogs for even more. Don’t forget to  leave comments along the way. I will be randomly selecting comments left in the lead up to Release Day on 25th July to win Uniko goodies!

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

    Three amazing ways to show up the versatility and beauty of this background stamp! Love it so much! The aqua tones blended as waves are so fresh and perfect to simulate the water! And love the bold, happy colours of the second one! The slimline is so clever!! How fun having also the single ice cream cones from the block to fussy cut and put on the top!! Amazing card!
