June 2022 Release Day, Brand Ambassador Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY

Happy FriYAY!

The day is finally here 🎉 Myself and the Brand Ambassadors get to introduce you to the NEW products you’ve been getting a look at all week and they will shortly be available HERE to purchase at 9pm BST.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, you’ll want to hop and comment along all the stops for your chance to win an £20 eGift Code (Open Worldwide inc. EU) all details can be found at the start of the hop.

Let’s get to seeing some more inspiration using all of the release as I couldn’t leave anything out and I have had a lot of fun creating!

First up is Organically Zesty. I wanted another quick colouring option, so this time I reached for Background Builders: Classics. I used my stamping platform to stamp the ombre yellow stripes across my card on a slight diagonal. I think this adds to the interest and draws your eye to the main image.

I added the sentiment and some yellow gloss Nuvo Drops for added interest and adhered the panel to my base card using foam adhesive.

Next I created a lime card using the Layering Stencil – Zesty.

I used all 4 layers for this card, but I chose to only selectively ink the juice splats. I used Altenew Tropical Forest ink collection for the layers, starting with the lightest. I kept the layout really simple and used one of the Organically Zesty sentiments stamped and heat embossed in white.

For my Background Builders Hearts card I looked for inspiration from a card I made a very long time ago, when Background Builders Round In Circles was released! I loved the layout, so recreated THIS card using the hearts instead.

I started by stamping the light pink open heart strip 3 times along the righthand side of the white panel. I then stamped the crosshatch heart in a slightly darker shade of ink.

To recreate the balloon from the original card I used the larger heart with the lined segments. Again stamping in a darker shade of pink and colouring the segments with markers. I added some fine glitter to the heart and the congratulations sentiment from Everyday Sentiments. The panel was then adhered to a light pink base card.

Lastly for today and by no means least I used Sunshine & Rainbows and the Stencil – Raindrops. I was inspired by Jane’s cards yesterday HERE where she stamped the rainbow arches in black and the background was coloured.

I started with the stencilled background. I used a piece of medium aqua card stock from my stash and some Gina K Texture Paste through the stencil. Once the paste was dry I repositioned the stencil back in place and then used detail stencil brushes to apply a rainbow of colours to each of the drops.

The rainbow arches were stamped in shades of black and grey. I used Altenew’s Gentleman’s Grey Collection. I then fussy cut the arches adhered them using foam adhesive finishing with one cloud and a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks II.

That is all from me today. I will be back tomorrow on the Uniko Blogspot Blog with some more post release inspiration!

I’d love to know what has been your favourite from this release & thank you for all your support & comments this week across social media. It is all very much appreciated.

    Amazing cards Bev. I’m especially loving the final one with all its lovely pops of colour. And there’s some sort of optical illusion going on because no matter how hard I try, I cannot see that the rainbow is shades of grey…it looks coloured to me!! 🌈 x

    Love your cards, Bev! Hard to pick a favorite, but I do really love the first one using stripes instead of coloring!

    Another great release Bev! I love the Zesty stencil set and Organically Zesty stamps. The Altenew inks lend themselves very well to these cards too.

    Great cards. I like the idea of putting the rainbow in shades of grey and colour the background.
    Nice idea.
