Uniko - September Release and Giveaway ....

...  Hello again!  I'm back to share some cards made using Uniko's latest release.  You've seen our introductions and today all the stamps sets are available for purchase from Uniko.  Here are some more inspiration cards for you:

I started off making a really clean and simple card with Natures Treasures II:

Autumn - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko - Natures Treasures II, Pure Floral Chrysanthemum
Inks: Kaleidacolour - Capuccino Delight; Hero Arts Ombre - Pink to Red
Dies: Uniko - Chrysanthemum
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Primrose Petals; Gems

This card might look a little familiar (check out Bev's card from yesterday), but I can honestly say that I made this as soon as I saw the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#142!!  I decided to skip the sentiment.  I stamped the small leaves and the vines from Natures Treasures II directly on the card.  I stamped the chrysanthemum using ombre ink on white card and cut it out with the matching die.  I finished the front with the addition of some little gems.  I'm also submitting this card to AAA Cards - AAA#48 where the theme is autumn colours.  You should see the chrysanthemums in my garden - they look fabulous!!!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of pink card (discontinued colour) and added a few more leaves on the white panel.  I left a large space for my message.

Next I made a very masculine card with Background Builders Triangulate:

Just for You - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko - Background Builders Triangulate, Nautical Treasures, Background Builders Squared
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Soft Sky, Sahara Sand, Not Quite Navy, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Luckly Limeade

Not as CAS as my first card, but lots of fun to make.  I love these stamps - so on trend with the tribal like patterns.  The colours are from Colour Q - cQc#308 - they are just perfect for a guy card!  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#204 for the layout.  I stamped the pattern on the central panel by stamping first at the bottom and then the top, building up the patten and finishing with the arrows in the centre.  I used on of the triangle stamp to create the pattern on the green sail.  I stamped the boat on white card, cut it out and added patterned sails.  I finished with a simple sentiment.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of green card and added some pattern to the white panel.

Last, but by no means least, is a birthday card made using All Occasion Sentiments #6:

Smile - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko - All Occasion Sentiments #6, Strike A Pose
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Hero Arts Neon - Blue, Green, Orange
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Happy Snaps; Clear Embossing Powder

I made this for our friend David who is celebrating his birthday today.  David's a photographer so I had to use Strike a Pose on his card.  I stamped the word "smile" repeatedly over the background using bright, neon colours from this week's The Male Room - TMR#19-15 challenge.  "Smile" works so well on a card for a photographer.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in green design paper and added some decoration to the white panel.  All being well, David should have received this card.  The photo on the card is one I took at last week's photo shoot with Diane - it was a blast!!

We really did think alike for the CTS card, I nearly used the Chrysanthemum myself! Your card is simply stunning too, love the colour combo. Your mix of stamps on the other two cards really showcase the versatility of them all. Wonderful showcase & thank you for your hard work & continued support of Uniko. Hugs Bev x

You've been busy! Love the contrast of the pink flower against the Autumal colours. Thanks for linking this one up at AAA Cards. The second card is just so awesome, loving how you've combined those stamps. And the last card, well you know what I'm going to say - fabulous for a scrapbook or PL album.
