Uniko - Introducing Block Party Christmas

Have you spotted the Uniko sneak peeks of the October release? Well I'm back from my holiday just in time to share the first of the introductions with you today.

Such a fabulous stamp to make those quick multiple cards that we all need at Christmas.

How are you liking my pinks for Christmas? Last year there seemed to be so much of these bright unusual colours around that I'm hedging my bets and expecting them to be popular again this year.

Stamps: Uniko, Block Party Christmas
Inks: SU, tempting turquoise
Pens: Copic, Y13, YG13, B02, RV04
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles

My next card jumps straight back to the safe traditional Christmas colours of red, green and gold.

I used a sparkly gold embossing powder to make the stamp pop and then added some little touches of red and green colour. I framed the whole thing in green and matted it onto a red card base.

Stamp: Uniko, Block Party Christmas
Inks: Vramark + Honey Doo Crafts golden glamour embossing powder
Pens: Copic, R29, G28
Die: Lawn Fawn, stitched rectangle frames
Emellishments, star gem from my stash 

Well that's all from me today, I think I've got off to a good start with using this fabulous new release from Uniko - you are so going to want all five of the new sets. Loads more ideas about how to use this stamp can be found at Uniko - HERE.  And don't forget to come back tomorrow when the next introduction will be revealed.

Thanks so much for looking today.  And keep crafting!

  1. Loving both the cards Jane, the hot pink base make the front stands out, and the second one is indeed very festive with all the christmas colors
