Uniko December New Release Blog Hop

I'm so pleased you dropped by today as I'm showcasing the Uniko December new release.

There are three stamp sets and two stencils in this release and you are so going to love them all.



First up is a wonderful new addition to the Pure Florals series of stamp sets. If you love big and bold flower stamps this set will get you very excited.

For my card I dug out an old Spellbinders die and cut it in dark green and then used it as a mat for a white circle. The largest peony was stamped, coloured using Copic pens and then hand cut and mounted on pads before adhering to the circular mat.

The greeting was stamped onto white card and then the whole thing matted onto the dark green card.

Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals: Peony
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Pens: Copic, G94, G99, V12, V15, E000
Die: Spellbinders, lacey circles & standard circles small

My next card showcases my personal favourite from this release - Snowflake Serenade. This is perfect for those last minute Christmas cards as you can just stamp and go!

Once stamped all I did was add a few touches of colour and some small adhesive gems before adhering to a plain white card base.

Stamps: Uniko, Snowflake Serenade
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Pens: Copic, G28, E000
Gems: Papermania, iridescent

A beautiful layering stamp set is coming up next - Wonderful Day.  This set is just so versatile and colours can be used in a variety of different combinations. For my card I went with a trio of Altenew  pinks.

I kept this card nice and CAS to allow the beauty of the stamps to shine.

Stamps:Uniko, Wonderful Day
Inks: Altenew, rose quartz, puffy heart, purple wine

I'm finishing off with a pair of cards which follow the same design using the two stencils from this release - In The Forest and Let It Snow.

I used some blue polka dot card, added the stencil on top and inked with distress oxides. I then stamped a greeting from Festive Sentiments onto a stitched rectangular die cut and popped it on top and matted the whole thing onto a white card base.

Stencils: Uniko, In The Forest, Let It Snow
Stamp: Uniko, Festive Sentiments
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, TREE - salty ocean, cracked pistachio, SNOWFLAKES - faded jeans, wilted violet, salty ocean
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles

Well I'm sure you're now itching to get these goodies into your baskets. So I'll just leave you with the blog hop order in case you fancy the chance to win the entire release by leaving comments as you go.

Jane - that's me
