Uniko February Release - Introducing Background Blocks Splatter, Background Blocks Cogs & Everyday Sentiments.


I'm excited to be here today to share the first of the introductions to Uniko's 10th birthday month new release.

We're starting with a trio of those small but essential go-to type stamps.

Well of course with all the boys in my family my head went straight to a masculine card!

I stamped the cogs in a light aqua and then re-inked the stamp more lightly in the blue to get this two toned effect. I then added two greetings to finish it all off.

Next I put the splatter to use and managed to guide my head away from masculine - although it would be perfect for those type of cards - and paired it up with Beautiful Blooms II.

I love how the splatter gives a watercoloured look without any need to have the skill.

My final card for today also pairs up the splatter with an older stamp set - Pure Florals Lily. This time I used the with sympathy sentiment and some more sombre colours.

So that's day one of the introductions done. Come back tomorrow when another essential stamp and a gorgeous new stencil is on the menu.

Thanks for your time today and stay safe and keep crafting!



  1. Fabulous cards Jane. The splatters behind the beautiful florals works so well. X

  2. Wow, great cards Jane!
    Love your colour-mixes on the stamped areas of all three cards!
    Greetings from Wiebke

  3. I wondered how you did the inking on the first and the mix of grunge splatter and flowers works well too. :)

  4. Three fab cards, Jane. The two tone cogs look great and your handling of the splatters stamps is wonderful, they work so well with outline florals x

  5. Gorgeous, Jane ! This first card could have been mine... how come it's not in purple? Absolutely beautiful with these two blue shades. Love the splatters together with the outlined flowers, a gorgeous technique and a quicker one than colouring ! x
