Introducing… Mid Century Modern Florals & Mid Century Modern Background Blocks I & II

Introducing… Mid Century Modern Florals & Mid Century Modern Background Blocks I & II


Welcome to Day 1 of the April / May 2019 Release product introductions.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the start of todays introduction blog hop. I have shared a little bit about todays designs and where my inspiration for them came from.

I’ve 4 cards to share with you today using the 3 clear stamp sets…


Let’s have a look at them individually in more detail…


First up is this pink & grey number. I’ve used Background Blocks Mid Century Modern on base card, stamping it in Altenew Silver Stone ink. This stamp is super easy to use to create an all over background, with no worries of having to line things up to match 😉


For the focal point panel I have combined 6 of the flower building stamps from Mid Century Modern Florals to create my flower. I used Altenew Coral Berry for the oval and I heat embossed the white detailing with Opaque Bright White WOW embossing powder. 

I added the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from Simply Said (available on backorder & due in stock 3rd May) and added my usual favourite, Nuvo Drops!

Next I decided to up my colour game and went for some bright orange & yellows…



This time I have used Background Blocks Mid Century Modern II as my backdrop for another flower built with the stamps contained in Mid Century Modern Florals.



This time I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the background. First I stamped it in Altenew Silver Stone ink and then I stamped over in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Clear Gloss WOW embossing powder. The dome shapes are coloured with the lighter shades of Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends and the detail on the flower with the brights.



This time I have added a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks and more of my favourite Nuvo Drops – just love these!

Continuing the orange colour scheme I was inspired by Orla Kiely for this card design…


I’ve used the flower stem and largest double leaf stamps to create the repeated liner design down the right hand side of my top folding card. I used VersaMark ink and again heat embossed with Opaque Bright White WOW embossing powder.



The sentiment is from Birthday Wishes, which was released last month and I’ve die cut the square using Sizzix Stiched Frames. More Nuvo Drops to finish the design off too!

Lastly for today I wanted to create a bright overlapped design to show how the Mid Century Modern Floral stamps can be used in a different way.


The sentiment from Birthday Wishes is stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with Metallic Silver WOW embossing powder. I’ve then used Altenew inks in Aqualicious, Fuchsia, Fresh Lemon, Volcano Lake, Silver Stone & Industrial Diamond to stamp and overlap various images from the Mid Century Modern Florals set. This time I added Nuvo Drops in Ripened Pumpkin add a finishing touch.


That’s all I have to share today using these 3 stamp sets, but I will have more to share using them on release day!

For this release we have another inspiring Guest Designer joining us to help introduce all of the products. Please give a warm welcome to Jenny from Crafting in the Country.


Hi I’m Jenny and I’m a crafter from the UK. I’ve always loved to colour, draw and make things but my addiction to card-making started when I discovered stamps, inks and dies. I love a Clean and Simple style with lots of white space but I’m one of those crafters that has to sit on her hands when I finish a card to keep that space empty!!.. Lol. I just want to say thank you to Beverley for inviting me join herself and the Uniko Design Team for the May Release… I’ve had fun creating with these great new products 🙂

Be sure to pop by Jenny’s blog HERE for your next stop on todays blog hop.It wouldn’t be a release without a daily blog hop full of inspiration! 

As usual my AWESOME Design Team have worked their magic with todays products, so be sure to hop along & see them…

    Well Julie is not the only one that can remember these sort of designs from back then! Loving the oranges on the first card – can’t believe I just typed that, so not my sort of colour but you’ve converted me Bev.

    Oh I ADORE your cards!! The designs are so retro but modern at the same time. I think my favorite is the orange and yellow one. Totally amazing design!

    I just adore this new range Bev! So many different possibilities and really funky retro possibilities too! Very 70s colour combo with your first two and then bright, fun funky pops for your 3rd card. Love them! xx
