Uniko February Release - Introducing Block Party Birthday

Time to introduce the first of Uniko's February new release. So exciting and well worth the wait!

I've actually got two cards to share, although I only really set out to make one - all will become clear!

First I inked up the stamp in dark blue and then made a second stamping on another piece of card in the turquoise.

I then die cut two circles from each card, using the words on the stamp to ensure they weer both in the same place and swapped out the larger circle to alternate the colours. Here's the second bonus card you get by using this technique:

And I'm thinking these colours will be perfect for the men in my family, but I'm already planning a pink/purple version.

I matted the stamped blocks and added a couple of trios of enamel dots to finish off my cards.

Stamps: Uniko, Block Party Birthday
Inks: SU, night of navy, tempting turquoise
Die: Spellbinders, standard circles small
Embellishments: Bling Bling, enamel dots

One for your wish list today and four more sets to go - going to be a busy Uniko week! The rest of the DT have cards to show the versatility of this stamp set too, find all the links here.

Thanks for looking today, your visit has been much appreciated. And keep crafting!
