Framed ‘Watercolour’ Florals

Hey!

Welcome to the day after release and I am back with a couple more cards I finished last night using Framed Florals. If you missed the release blog hop yesterday, you can catch up HERE. There is still time to comment along the hop to be in the chance of winning the ENTIRE release!

Anyway, here is my first card…

FramedFloralsWC2

I recently treated myself to the Altenew Watercolours :) and thought I would give them a little whirl. I picked a couple of my favourites, Mountain Mist & Lagoon to create this simple background. I then simply used my MISTI tool to stamp the Framed Florals image over the top using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I trimmed the image and adhered it to a panel of white card for a small border and then onto a Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay card base.

I was feeling a little braver next and decided to some proper watercoloring and create a softer looking card…

I am pleased with how I coloured the flowers, but still need lots of practice when it comes to the background. I seem to have lost some of the patience I once had and so I find it hard to wait for layers to dry before adding more!

To make things easier I heart embossed the image in white before colouring. The finished panel is adhered onto some Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue card and then onto a white card case. The sentiment is from Simply Said and stamped in Altenew Silver Stone ink.

I hope I have inspired you to get out your watercolours! I will definitely be getting mine out again and practicing more :) I will be back again tomorrow with more to share using the new release products.

Until then, thank you for stopping by.

Introducing… BIG & BOLD Hello and Framed Florals

Hey!

Welcome back to day three of the August 2018 Release product introductions. Thank you for all the lovely comments and support around social media for yesterdays introductions, I do love reading them all :)

Today we are introducing another 2 new clear stamp sets, BIG & BOLD Hello and Framed Florals. Hopefully you have hopped on by from the Uniko Blogspot blog HERE, where I have shared cards using the new stamps.

Here are a couple more I have made. First up, BIG & BOLD Hello…

IntroB&Bhello2

This was another one of the card designs I created for the Uniko Summer Stamping Retreat, however, this is a different colour way from the original as I actually mailed that card out!!

The bold sentiments in the BIG & BOLD series are so fun to create ombre shadow effects like I have on this card. Plus, the beauty of having a stamping tool like the MISTI makes it a breeze! Again, I have used Altenew inks as they really do take the thinking out of matching colours 😉 I’ve used the Sweet Dreams collection on this card.

Next up is a card using Framed Florals…

IntroFflorals2

This time I have used the ‘no line’ colouring technique using Prismacolor Pencils and I was a little unsure as to how it would turn out when I started, but I am rather pleased with the result.

I started out by stamping the image onto white card using Altenew Limestone ink. I then simply coloured over the stamped image with my pencils.

The layout of my card is inspired by the current sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below. I had to turn the orientation of my card for the image to fit with the sketch.

Ok, that’s all I have to share with you today using these new sets, but why not grab a cup of your favourite beverage and hop along with myself and the team…?

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed that hop and I am all inspired to get inky! I’d love to know your thoughts on these clear stamp sets and which is your favourite of the two, that is if you can decide?!

That’s all from myself and the Design Team today and all 5 of the new clear stamp sets have been introduced, which means…. TOMORROW is RELEASE DAY!!

Hope to see you then for the full reveal, release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!!
