Here they are then - 6 stamps sets:
And 5 stencils:
For my first sample today I used a sheet of graph paper to stamp the beautiful Spring Botanical Daffodil. This idea was inspired by Keren and it makes for an unusual but eye pleasing background to stamps.
I picked up on the graph paper colours for my card base and simply die cut a stitched rectangle and then matted it onto the same colour. I cut round the shape of the greeting - seems to be a bit of theme with me and this release.
Stamps: Uniko, Spring Botanicals: Daffodil & sentiment from Spring Botanicals: Snowdrop
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles
Paper: Standard graph paper
My next card uses two of the new stamp sets and a simple classic colour combination.
Such an easy card to create with the Background Blocks Party Confetti peeping through a die cut heart and the the greeting and music notes stamped underneath.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Party Confetti, Life Is A Song
Ink: SU, real red
Die: Laen Fawn Outside In stitched heart stackable
My final share for today sees me slipping back into my favourite colours and combines the new Equaliser stencil with a couple of older Uniko stamps.
I squidged white embossing paste through the Equaliser stencil and while I let that dry out I stamped and heat embossed the beautiful chrysanthemum stamp onto some patterned paper and used its matching die to cut it out.
Once the paste was dry I stamped and heat embossed the greeting and then popped the chrysanthemun onto pads slightly overlapping the equaliser bars.
Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Inks: Veramark clear + Ranger superfine black embossing powder
Die: Uniko, Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum
Stencil: Uniko, Equaliser
Embossing: Dreamweaver white paste
Paper: First Edition, Wild Flower

WOW I love the last card, what a great way to combine the flower and equalizer, I couldn't have thought of that. Great showcase!ReplyDelete
Love the party confetti behind the heart card. Great idea!ReplyDelete
Three fabulous cards and I love the confetti heart xxReplyDelete
The graph paper on the daffodil card is such a great idea and gives it a very special pulse. Thank you for sharing your ideas!ReplyDelete
Kind regards from stempelfrida
You've matched the card base and graph paper so well Jane, very effective. The combination of the heart and sentiment is fab and I love the combination of the equalizer with the die cut chrysanth. :)ReplyDelete
I love the graph paper daffodil - looks super. The simplicity of the heart card is lovely, but it's the chyranthemum and equaliser card that I think is wonderful. Great work. xxReplyDelete
First: WHAT?! There's a matching die for the Chrysanthemum? Oh my stars! Soooo going on my shopping list! Woo hooo! Okay, now that I'm semi-settled down: An amazing array of showcases today that, when added to those you designed for the intros, sees me marveling at your creativity and ingenuity! Your daffodil is lovely; the heart, charming. And, of course, the chrysanthemum...have I mentioned that I LOVE your design here. Swoon!ReplyDelete
Loving the cards especially the daffodil oneReplyDelete

Gorgeousness! Cannot pick out one over the others as I like them all!Another lovely release from UnikoReplyDelete
Gorgeous cards - I love how you stamped on the graph paper.ReplyDelete
Hi Jane...stunning cards...I really like the heart one, I think that is so different and clever use of the daffodil too. The last one is equally wonderful...like your colours and the way you have combined the equalizer and flower.ReplyDelete
Very nice! I think the last card is my favorite.ReplyDelete
Purple is my favorite color after all. :-)
Simply beautiful! Love this release.ReplyDelete
Brilliant release, and you made wonderful cards with it - I like how you combined a few sets on most of your cards, very clever!ReplyDelete
Fabulous showcase Jane ..... I love the heart design with the confetti stamp xxReplyDelete
There is quirkiness in each of ur amazing creations, love them all!ReplyDelete
Wow! Wow! Wow! Beautiful cards and colors!!!ReplyDelete
Another superb trio Jane! Who'd have thought plain old graph paper could have such an effective look! Sheer brilliance. I have to say your purple one has me swooning with that luscious paste through the stencil and it's lovely to see the stencil used for something other than musical. Your delicate heart-framed confetti card is also a stunner. Great ideas and inspiration. Thanks xxReplyDelete
That's a lovely array of cards!! The second is so beautiful with the heart and the music :)ReplyDelete
WOW, WOW, WOW! I am loving your choice of new products to showcase for Release Day. I agree that the graph paper adds for an interesting and eye catching design. I think you must have read my mind as your 2nd card combines hearts & the Life is a Song sentiment just how I had imagined it ;) AND LOVING the pairing of the Equaliser Stencil and Pure Florals Chrysanthemum - simply stunning and beautiful combo of techniques. YOU ROCk and I am blessed to have you at Uniko. Hugs Bev xReplyDelete
You girks are maling it so hard to choose...the daff on the graph paper looks fab and also the heart and music.ReplyDelete
.so tough to choose ;)
Jane, your CAS daffodil card with the grid paper is just stunning!ReplyDelete
Love this contrast between "nature" and "mathematic".
It's also visible on the chrysanthemum card, but not as strong as on the daffodil.
Cool combination of the "life is a song" set with the "confetti"-heart!
Thanks for all these inspirations how to use the new released Uniko products!
Greetings from Wiebke
Sorry I'm a bit late, but my little toddler Milo keeps me really busy at day-time and makes me fall asleep right after dinner these days. I also have to "pay" :-D with lots of cuddling time and attention for my journey to the Uniko-HQ last weekend - Milo missed me!
Beautiful Cards Jane! My fave is the music one.ReplyDelete
Love the way you have combined elements from the different sets. That gorgeous daffodil on the teal baxkground is the star of the show for meReplyDelete
Great showcase of the new products. I love how you combined the equalizer with a flower on your last card. Such a brilliant idea. Hugs, JinnyReplyDelete
