It's time to revisit a previously released set at Uniko this month. And actually it's two sets - Beautiful Blooms I & II. And as always there's plenty of DT inspiration and a blog hop to follow with the chance to win one of the featured sets.
I've made a couple of cards using Beautiful Blooms I - one of my all time favourites and go to stamps from Uniko. So here's the first:
I've been seeing a lot of cards using the new crealies patchwork dies and decided to see if I could manage to emulate them using the dies I already have in my stash.
I was quite pleased with the result and think the beautiful bloom looks really cool stamped just off the edge.
Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms 1 & sentiment from A Gift For You
Ink: SU, real red; Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Spellbinders, standard circles small; Lawn Fawn, large stitched circle stackables
My second card uses both the small and large bloom heads from the set and a classic colour combo.
And apart from the sprinkles it's a one layer card so can be posted easily. Ideal for those times when a quick note is needed.
Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms I & All Occasion Sentiments #1
Injks: SU. crushed curry, smoky slate; Memento, tuxedo black
Embellishments: Doodlebug sprinkles, bumble bee asst.
Of course I couldn't let Beautiful Blooms II sit all rejected on the shelf, so I made a third card just so that it wouldn't feel left out.
I used one of the new Stampin Up in colours - mint macaron - and a favourite pinky purple from Memento - lilac posies. I'm loving this colour clash so much!
And I'm thinking this may just be my favourite of the three cards. Which is yours? I'd love you to leave a comment and let me know.
Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms II & Simply Said Birthday
