Uniko - September Release Day & Bloghop

Yahoo! Release day at Uniko has finally arrived! And here's what you've been waiting for - the full reveal.

Bet you're finding it difficult to choose which one(s) will be jumping into your shopping basket! Well here's a little more inspiration for you and a chance to see just how beautifully the new sets will mix with those already in your stash.

My first card showcases Nature's Treasures II. I did originally plan to add a flower to the leaves - after all they do match perfectly with Beautiful Blooms II and Flower Power #6 - but then I decided a butterfly would maybe be just as good. And I'm thinking it does look so right - what do you think?

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the smaller butterfly from the set and added a generous coat of sparkle. Then I stamped the butterfly again straight onto the card so that it didn't lose its antennae.

Stamps: Uniko, Nature's Treasures II, Simply Said Birthday, English Country Garden Butterflies
Inks: SU, pistachio pudding, wisteria wonder; Memento, tuxedo black
Stencil: Memory Box, texture mesh
Promarkers: violet, powder blue, bluebell
Embellishments: Wink of Stella, clear 

My second card uses both of the other new release sets and couple of smaller sentiments from Flower Power #5. I always love the look of mixed sizes and fonts on card sentiments and I think these ones work really well together.

Don't you just adore the new THANKS stamp? So bold and striking!

Do you keep all manner of bits and pieces 'just in case'? Well I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to White Stuff clothes labels and that's where the twine came from.

Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #6, Background Builders Triangulate, Flower Power #5
Inks: SU, mint macoaron, watermelon wonder
Card: SU, mint macaron
Embellishemnts: twine, taken from a White Stuff label

Ok I'll stop my rambling and let you get on with the important stuff of blog hopping and maybe winning all of the new release. Here's the hop order:

Jane (that's me)

Good luck! And keep crafting!
