Introducing… Flower Power #8

Hey!

Welcome to day 5 of the May 2018 Release product introductions!

Today we are introducing the next clear stamp set in the Flower Power series. It’s been an age since I added to this series and when I stumbled upon another floral in my archive of designs it seemed perfect to add to the Flower Powers :)

Hopefully you have hopped on over from our AMAZING Guest Designer Anna’s blog. If not, be sure to have a look at Anna’s colourful and cheerful scrapbook layout HERE.

I’ve one more card to share today using this clear stamp set…

IntroFP#82

I’ve been seeing Lime Green with Black & White a lot recently and I thought it would be fun to use the colour combo for my card.

IntroFP#82a

 

I’ve also been seeing a lot of partial stencilled backgrounds behind images, so I thought I would try my hand at it! I used the Scattered Polka Dot stencil and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. I still need a little practice with my faded blending technique, but I was pleased with the results.

Ok, that is all I’ve had time to make so far using this set :( So many ideas, not enough time! Luckily I have a FAB design team who’ve made amazing projects to share with you. Be sure to hop on round and leave some LOVE.

GIVEAWAY ALERT! As this is a Kindness themed clear stamp set, I will be giving one away to one lucky commenter!

FebRD1
It probably isn’t a surprise to anyone that has been following the release celebrations that the new Kindness Blooms clear stamp set is a new favourite of mine 😉 The ideas using this new loopy bloom have been free flowing!
For this first card I decided to pair both sizes of the loopy bloom with the Large Background Scattered Polka Dots, which I have stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in detail white embossing powder.
FebRD1b
The sentiment is just one of the mix and match possibilities contained in the mini clear stamp set and I have stamped it onto a strip of white card and adhered it to the card base using foam adhesive. I’ve finished the design off with some new Stampin’ Up! self adhesive sequins.
FebRD1a
For my next card I decided to create a more masculine style card using Kindness Blooms paired with the new Birthday Sentiments clear stamp set…
FebRd2
As you can see I used the stamen burst stamp and the small polka dot from Kindness Blooms and simply by using primary colours and keeping the design CAS I have achieved a masculine look.
FebRD2a
I wish I had more to share using the other new products being released, but creative time has been limited :( I will be sharing more over the coming days though using all of the new products.
However, I know that the Design Team have been super busy and much more creative than me and have a wealth of inspiration using all of the new products to share with you!

Introducing… Kindness Blooms & Uniko Stencil Fun Flowers

Hey!

Welcome back to the final day of the product introductions! This is the exciting bit, where you get to see the sneak peeks in action!

What a FUN 4 days it has been! If you’ve missed any of the introductions you can catch up HEREHEREHERE and HERE.

Today the Design Team and I are here to introduce the last floral products, Kindness Blooms clear stamp set and Fun Flowers Stencil.

I think I have yet again saved a new favourite until last 😉 I just can’t seem to stop using the Kindness Blooms clear stamp set! This set contains a fun doodle style flower in 2 sizes, some fun flower accents and kindness mix and match sentiments.
IntroKindnessBlooms1
For my first card today I have only used the Kindness Blooms clear stamp set, but due to the technique I used and showed HERE, a few at the Uniko Stamping Retreat on Saturday thought that I had used the same technique on the Large Scattered Polka Dot BG. However, I have used the single polka dot that comes in the Kindness Blooms set and simply randomly stamped it in a rainbow of Altenew ink colours.
IntroKindnessBlooms1a

The kraft card stock layer is adhered to the rainbow background using foam adhesive and the sentiment is just one of the options available.

Next I was inspired by a Mid Century Modern pattern design that I had come across on Pinterest HERE

IntroKindnessBlooms2

This was a sheer accident! I had not consciously thought about this when designing the set, but the happy coincidence and results are super fun :)

That’s all I have to share using Kindness Blooms today and I will be sharing a card using the Fun Flowers stencil over HERE at 1pm GMT for my CAS Colours & Sketches DT post 😉

Again it’s a hop full of wonderful inspiration and techniques, I can’t wait to read how they’ve created all their samples! So get comfy, grab a drink and be sure to hop around all the Design Team blogs for a TON of inspiration and leave comments along your way to be in the chance of winning some random prizes!

Stamp Of The Week – Flower Power #2

Hey!

Welcome back to the NEW feature here at Uniko, Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). This week I am dusting off… Flower Power #2

FlowerPower2PP

My card today is very similar to yesterdays, though this time I was inspired by the current MUSE challenge seen HERE and below.

tracey_Muse #149

This weeks muse is Tracey McKneely, a lovely, talented and inspiring card maker and blog friend. It would have been rude not to play along 😉

2016SOTW14

I was inspired by Tracey’s bright colours, swirly stem/leaves and the sentiment. Perfect for me to use my Hero Arts Acts Of Kindness stamp set again and this time I paired Flower Power #2 with leaves from Natures Treasures II.

2016SOTW14a

Short & sweet from me today, lots to be completed at Uniko HQ, so many fun things around the corner AND a birthday celebration to prepare for 😉

Don’t forget that this set is 20% off this week HERE in store, for this week only. That’s all from me today, I will be back  tomorrow with more to share. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)
