Maybe if you've been a follower of Uniko for as long as me you'll recognise these two sets. They were always big favourites of mine and I was sad when they went into retirement. So I'm really thrilled to say Bev has decided to wake them up and re-release them.
And here's some cards to whet your appetite a bit more:
I'm starting with a card using two of the Background Builder stamp strips. I embossed the snowflakes in sparkly white and then inked over in a couple of blue shades of distress ink.
I then stamped the greeting strip in the same ink and matted it onto a silver sparkly washi tape strip. I then matted it all onto a matching blue base card.
Stamps: Uniko, Background builders: Christmas
Inks: Ranger Distress, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch
My next card uses stamps from both of today's sets and one of my favourite layouts - a simple line of images.
I decided to only add colour to the centre Santa and also glittered him up a bit with a Sakura gelly roll pen.
Stamps: uniko, Background builders: Christmas, Jolly Christmas
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; SU, cherry cobbler
Pens: Copic, R29;
Sakura gelly roll, clear star
My final card for today is a simple CAS style again using stamps from both of today's sets.
I started by stamping the holly leaves and berries and then added the tree, star and sentiments. I added a strip of green card to the left hand side - another favourite layout style for me.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Builders: Christmas, Jolly Christmas
Inks: SU, old olive, cherry cobbler
Well that completes the first day of introductions to Uniko's October release. I'll be back tomorrow with some sample cards using two of the new stencils and a new sentiment stamp set. See you then!
Thanks for visiting today and keep crafting!
