Uniko October Release - Introducing Sweet Broom & Quilted Stencil

Hey! I'm back again today to introduce the next two new October release goodies from Uniko.


I'm kicking off with a couple of cards using the stamp set - it's so pretty!

I went for a trailing vine sort of look and stamped the outline first and then used the filler stamp in the same shade but stamped off first to make it lighter.  I added in a greeting from an older Uniko stamp set and coloured the tiny seed heads with a Copic pen.

Stamps: Uniko, Sweet Broom, Birthday Sentiments
Inks: Memento, Paris dusk
Pens: Copic, BV04, C0

I used the same stamp set for my next card, but with a really pared down CAS look.

I stamped with two shades of green and then added in some shadow using Copic pens. The greeting is from Simply Said Blocks II.

Stamps: Uniko, Sweet Broom, Simply Said Blocks II
Inks: SU, old olive, pear pizazz, sahara sand
Pens: Copic, W0, W1, W3, W5

I'm finishing up with a card using the new Quilted stencil.

I chose some citrus colours of oxide inks and placed the stencil off the top of my card as I wanted those little drops to look like they were dripping down the card.  I stamped and hand cut the sentiment and raised it onto pads.

Stamps: Uniko, Big & Bold: Hello
Stencil: Uniko, Quilted
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, twisted citron, wild honey

Well that's me done for today, I really hope you're liking my introductions. One more day of introductions to go then on Tuesday there will be the full reveal, a blog hop and maybe even a prize!

Thanks for looking today and I hope you'll be back tomorrow for more. In the meantime keep crafting!

  1. Love your different style cards, as always! Loads of ideas to inspire. I do like the blended half background - gives that added inter st to your design xx

  2. A duo of lovely designs to showcase the Sweet Broom and such a pretty version of the stencil. I'm in awe of your fussy-cutting! I'm planning to 'nudge' Bev to create some dies for a variety of her images (the 'bold' words, along with the Jolly Santa and tree, being first one my list *grin*)

  3. It never ceases to amaze me how you all come up with such wonderful designs and all so different. These are lovely Jane! x

  4. Interesting to see how this Sweet Broom is showcased differently by each of us. Even your two cards look very different by their design and the colours you chose. I love it ! Lovely card too with this delicate stencil. I didn't even think to use it for a non-Christmas card, it looks fabulous this way !

  5. I love your CAS designs. The Sweet Broom is beautiful and looks so different each time xx

  6. Classy, simple elegance on both of these. Just your awesome style as ever and such beautiful colours too. Love them x

  7. Beautiful CAS cards. Love them all!
