Uniko New Release - Introducing English Country Garden Designer Dies & Large Background Sketched Foliage

Hey! I'm back today with the next introduction to Uniko's new release. And boy are you going to love today's sets!


A new background stamp and a long awaited and oh so useful butterfly die set.  I went with a CAS shaker to display the beauty of the Uniko butterfly.

I stamped and foiled the small butterfly from the stamp set and then used the new die to cut it out - no more fussy cutting needed!

Stamps: Uniko, English country Garden Butterflies, Simply Said Blocks
Inks: Versamark clear + Ranger sticky embossing powder & Deco rainbow foil; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Dies: Uniko, English Country Garden Butterflies; MFT Die-namics, Poloroid Shaker Frame
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh, Wisteria Blossom mix

Of course I couldn't leave out the even more beautiful large butterfly and rainbow foiled that too before die cutting it and adhering over a window. Not a shaker this time but can you spot the gorgeous background foliage stamp?

The sentiment is also from the butterfly stamp set and is a very wistful quote in a pretty combo of fonts.

Stamps: Uniko, English Country Garden Butterflies, Large Background Sketched Foliage
Inks: Versamark clear + Ranger sticky embossing powder & Deco rainbow foil; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Dies: Uniko, English country Garden Butterflie;  MFT Die-namics, Inside/Out Stitched Circles

And finally time to give that awesome background stamp a chance to be the star. I used a kaleidacolor ink pad to get a varied coloured effect and then used the same ink pad with a brush to colour the small butterfly.

The large greeting is from All Occasion Sentiments #3 and I finished the whole card off by adding a trio of matching coloured sequins around it.
