Uniko February Release - Introducing Alphabet Outlined & Background Blocks Arts Decoratif

I'm so pleased you dropped by today as it's Day 1 of the Uniko February 2020 & 8th Birthday Release product introductions.

Today we are introducing two new clear stamp sets, Alphabet Outlined AND Background Blocks Arts D├ęcoratifs. 

   

My first card uses the Background Blocks Arts Decoratif heat embossed onto acetate to make a shaker window. It also has a some sneak peeks of a set that's being introduced tomorrow.


Here's a closer look at that shaker window.


Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Arts Decoratif, Anniversaire Arts Decoratif
Inks: Versamark + Ranger superfine black embossing powder; Versafine Calir, nocturne
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
Heat resistant acetate: Crafters Companion

My next card uses both the sets being introduced today and was created with my middle son in mind as he reaches that benchmark birthday later this year.


Lots of extra sparkle with the holo card and some blue tones for the colouring.


Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Alphabet Outlined, Background Blocks Arts Decoratif
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: Spellbinders, standard circles small; Lawn Fawn, large stitched circle stacks
Pens: Copic, C3, B39, BG53, BG 11, BG15, BG34

My final share today makes maximum use of those outline letters combined with an older set - Background Builders Classics.


I used pinks for this baby card and stamped each letter onto a banner diecut.


Supplies:
Stamps Uniko, Alphabet Outlined, Background Builders Classics
Inks: Memento, angel pink, tuxedo black
Dies: MFT, stitched jumbo fishtail banners
Pens: Copic, R81, R83, C1

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals Chrysanthemum
Ink: SU, old olive; Veramark clear + WOW! white embossing powder; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade
Die: Uniko, Pure Florals Chrysanthemum
