July 2022 Reveal, Release & Brand Ambassador Blog Hop!

Hello, Happy Friday and Happy Release Day! 

I do hope you have enjoyed the fun this week as myself and the Brand Ambassadors have shared inspiration using the new products in this mini release. The day is here and we can now officially introduce you to the 4 new products lining the shelves here at Uniko HQ and they are all available to purchase HERE.

Now, let’s get to the inspiration as I know that’s what you’ve come for!

For my first card today I used Background Blocks Rays and paired it with the previously released Nautical Treasures, which is back in stock.

This card was inspired by my husbands recent work on a project for Hartlepool Council, they are hosting The Tall Ships Race again in 2023 and I’ve been lucky to get the inside scoop on promotional material and videos!

I thought the rays would be an awesome backdrop to the sail boat sailing off into the sun set. I think it creates an awesome CAS masculine card.

Next, I wanted to use Stencil – Tropical Leaf #2 to create another CAS card with some fussy cut detail.

For this I lined up my stencil with the edge of my white mat layer. I used a trio of green inks to blend through the stencil and then simply fussy cut around the leaf just in this one corner.

I used pink & aqua ink to blend onto my base card and by adding the leaf panel to the card base with foam adhesive creates interest by allowing the ink blended background show through a little more in this one area. I used texture paste to add the leaf detail and the sentiment is from Paradise clear stamp set.

Lastly for today I used Paw Print Hearts with the previously released Sunshine & Rainbows.

Again, this was another idea I had in my mind when I designed the stamp set, so it felt good to get ink to stamp and to card!

I stamped the rainbow direct onto my mat layer using my stamping platform and then used the same colours to ink and stamp the paw print heart. I’ve adhered this using foam adhesive.

The sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks II and the tiny heart accents from Sunshine & Rainbows.

That is all from me today. Be sure to check out what the Brand Ambassadors have created, you can find the links HERE.

I hope you have chance to leave comments along the way, I will be randomly selecting one lucky from all that are left during the week to win a £20 eGift Certificate to use in the Uniko store. I will announce the winner here on the blog Friday 5th August.


Thank you for all the support and for joining in on the fun this week. I will be back tomorrow with more inspiration!

    I had the exact same idea to team BB Rays with Nautical Treasures. Good job I didn’t get around to it!! Yours looks great.

    Love the pink and blue edge to the Tropical Leaf #2 stencil card and how you cut away the bottom edge.

    Your rainbow looks like it is running into the Paw Print Heart, beautiful and clever. X
