WOO HOO! Today's the day!
Yep that's right it's release day for the new Uniko stamp collections.
Here a complete look at all the sets:
And here's some cards to get you into the mood:
My first card, using Originally Organic, is monochromatic. Elegant was what I was aiming to achieve - what do you think?
Stamps: Uniko, Originally Organic
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Promarkers, cool grey 1, 3 & 4
Die: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables
Embellishments: Doodlebug Sprinkles, beetle black asst.
My second card uses that set I can't keep my hands off - Marvellous Mehndi. I heat embossed the large stamp onto vellum and coloured it on the back - so easy no need to worry about going outside the lines!
I die cut the vellum and a shiny rectangular mat and added a sentiment from Simply Said II.
Stamps: Uniko, Marvellous Mehndi, Simply Said II
Ink: Versamark + WOW! sparkling snow embossing powder; Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: Lawn Fawn, large stitched circle stackables; Lil'inker stitched mats rectangles
Pens: Spectrum Noir Colorista, lipstick, nectarine
My final card for the release uses Winter Foliage and an older sentiment stamp. And I went right back to my roots and kept it very CAS.
I do love a bit of razzmatazz and sparkle, but there's something about a simple CAS card that relies only on the beauty of the stamps that really appeals to my heart.
Stamps: Uniko, Winter Foilage, Simply Said Christmas
Inks: SU, garden green, real red, sahara sand, tip top taupe
Now for the bit you've all been waiting for - the blog hop and chance to win the entire release! Check out all the details here.
I'm including the blog hop order, but the links to some are only to the DT blogs and not the specific posts about the Uniko release. As I'm away when this post goes live I've had to schedule it and some of the DT links weren't ready before I left home - but I know you won't let that stop you!
Good luck my friends!
Jane - that's me
