YAY! The day has arrived when you can see the entire new Uniko release and start shopping.
And it wouldn't be a proper release day without a few sample cards to share before you get down to the nitty gritty of trying to win the entire release.
So here goes:
Card one combines the glorious Pure Florals Lily with the wonderful Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe. A match made in heaven!
I chose some really subtle colours to add to the centre of the lily and then hand cut it before adhering it on pads to the card base.
Stamps: Uniko, PureFlorals Lily, Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe
Promarkers: ivory, buttercup, burnt orange, soft peach, olive green
I had weddings in mind when I created this next card and kept to a very simple black and white colour scheme. I used the Happy Succulents set combined once again with Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe. And why not use the stripes vertically for a change? I used my misti tool to help line up the stripes for the repeat stamping I needed to stretch the full width of the card.
I hand cut the three succulents from the large spray and also one of the leaf clusters. I added a trio of silver nailheads to finish off in style.
Stamps: Uniko, Happy Succulents, Background Blocks Horizontal Stripes
Die: MFT Die-namics, Stitched Basic Edges
Gems: Mark Richards, nailheads
To finish off my showcase and in case you were thinking I'd forgotten about colour I've changed up a gear for my last card.
I stamped Background Blocks Doodled Flower and then cut out a couple of strips. I applied colour in stripes directly from the pad. One strip went onto a die cut tag and the other straight onto the base card to line up with the greeting on the tag.
The leaf is from Originally Organics Additions and was stamped directly onto the tag. The succulent flower head was stamped onto a piece of scrap card, coloured using the direct from the pad method again and then hand cut and popped up onto pads.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Doodled Flower, Happy Succulents, Originaly Organic Additions
Inks: Ranger distress, shaded lilac, spun sugar, scattered straw
Promarkers: ivory, marsh green
Die: MFT Die-namics, Stitched Traditional Tags
