Uniko - April Release Day & Blog hop

YAY! Today is release day at Uniko and the first chance to see the new stamp sets in their entirety. A delightful duo of deliciousness!

  

I have two cards to share today and my first uses the oh so scrummy Celebate with Cake. Who doesn't love cupcakes?


I paired up this set with some patterned paper and matched the ink colours accordingly.


Supplies: Stamps: Uniko, Celebrate With Cake
Inks: SU, mint macaron, crisp cantaloupe, mosst meadow
Dies: Spellbinders standard circles small; Lawn Fawn, large stitched square tackables
Paper: SU, Birthday Bouquet
Embellishments: Papermania, iridescent adhesive stones; Wink of Stella 

My second card using Fun Flowers sees me slipping back to my all time favourite purple colours.


I paired this set up with one of Uniko's All Occasion Sentiments and tried to achieve an ombre effect using three of the purple shades.


Supplies: 
Stamps: Uniko, Fun Flowers, All Occasion Sentiments #6
Inks: Memento, lulu lavendar, sweet plum, grape jelly, elderberry

I'm keeping my blogging fairly brief today. It would be so easy to let the writing flow about these amazing new stamps, but I know you're going to be keen to get buying and/or trying to win them. So I'll cut to the chase and just add the blog hop order straightaway:

Jane - that's me

Thanks for finding time to stop by today, so pleased to see you.  And keep crafting!
