Uniko February Release - Introducing Life is a Song, Background Blocks Equaliser & Equaliser Stencil

Pop on some music and relax and enjoy the fourth day of introductions to the Uniko February release. And yes there's definitely a music vibe going on today!


So today there are two stamp sets and one stencil to get you into the groove.  And my first card is so essentially a me sort of CAS one layer type of thing using both the stamps sets.

I chose a classically simple colour scheme and rocked out these sets. And of course the total simpicity of this card makes my CAS heart sing!

Stamps: Uniko, Life Is A song, Background Blocks Equaliser
Ink: SU, cherry cobbler, smoky slate; Memento, tuxedo black 

My next card also use both stamp sets and is still fairly CAS. I chose a dark green cardstock and stamped and heat embossed the equaliser bars in black before adding colour using prisma color pencils. Love how the pencils add vibrant colour even on dark coloured cardstock.

I stamped part of the greeting onto a fishtail strip and the the 'music' word was heat embossed in black straight onto the green cardstock.  I finished off with a trio of music notes to fine tune my card.

Stamps: Uniko, Life Is A Song, Background Blocks Equaliser
Inks: Versamark clear + Ranger Superfine black embossing powedr; Versafine, onyx black
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched fishtail flag stax
Colours: Prisma Color

My final card uses Life is a Song stamps and the Equaliser stencil.

I started by stamping and heat embossing the greeting and then I blended distress ink over the top.  Next I stamped the musical notation using the same distress ink colours and then die cut it into a stitched circle.

As the greeting mentioned the heart I decided to add an inlaid die cut heart and used the equaliser stencil and the same distress inks to cover it. 

Stamps: Uniko, Life is a Song
Inks: Versamark cler + Rnager superfine white embossing powder; Ranger ditress, wilted violet, picked raspberry, shaded lilac
Stencil: Uniko, Equaliser
Die: Lawn Fawn, Outside In stitched heart stackable; MFT Die-namics, double stitched circles

A superb showcase with these goodies! x
