Uniko - July Release Day & Blog Hop

At last the waiting is over and today's the Uniko July Release Day! YAY!

If you've been following the Uniko DT posts over the past few days you'll be as excited as me! Well from today the sets are available to purchase and if you join in the blog hop and comment along the way maybe you'll be the winner of all three sets - so easy to be in with a chance!
So here's my showcase of Uniko's brilliant new release:

My first card uses both Home Sweet Home and Garland Galore for my new home announcement card. It's a wee little notelet style card, but with plenty of room to add an address inside. And ever since I first saw this stamp set the idea of a partial cut out was stuck firmly in my mind.

Stamps: Uniko, Home Sweet Home, Garlands Galore
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Promarkers: cool grey 1, azure

My next card uses the oh so gorgeous Pure Florals: Cosmos. I know I've said it before but cosmos must be my most favourite ever of summer garden flowers.

And I couldn't resist getting inky and trying out a bokeh effect background to showcase the absolute beauty of this stamp. You can probably just about make out the added glistening glamour given by a generous coat of Wink of Stella,

Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals: Cosmos
Inks: Ranger distress, dusty concord, milled lavender, victorian velvet; SU, crushed curry, whisper white; Memento, tuxedo black
Stencil: ARTplorations, bubbles
Promarker: mustard
Wink of Stella, clear 

Before you go off hopping round the Uniko DT blogs here's the images of the stamp sets available to purchase from the Uniko shop from today.


And now I'll keep you hanging on no longer, off you go!

Jane (that's me)

  2. Love the shape of your first card, very original, and the Bokeh background of your second. Both great cards!

  3. Great cards, love how you used the house card. What a brilliant idea as a gift to someone who is moving, a boxed set of these.

  4. LOVE the bright, cheerful blue on your We've Moved card! Wonderful design!

  5. Two great cards. Really like how you have shaped the moving house card. I agree with Aileen these would be great to give to someone who is moving.

  6. Wonderful cards, both of them! What a brilliant idea to cut the end of the card away, to totally expose the roof of the house! The colours, softness and sparkle on your second card makes the whole card stunning and very elegant!

  7. Oh my...these are so much fun!

  8. Fabulous cards, Jane! I LOVE that cutaway house and the bokeh effect looks so dreamy with the beautiful cosmos flowers :)
