Uniko - Polka Dots and Word Blocks ....

... Good morning! You've seen the sneak peeks, and now it's time to introduce the new stamps from Uniko. Today we are introducing two new sets. The first is an addition to the Background Blocks series and it features POLKA DOTS - just love them!! The second set is an addition to the Simply Said series - this time the words are in blocks. I've combined them both on this card:

Stamps: Uniko - Background Blocks Polka Dots, Pure Florals Gerbera, Simply Said Blocks, All Occasion Sentiments #3
Inks: Gina K - Onyx Black; Delicata - Silvery Shimmer
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! - Basic Black; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Silver Shimmer Washi Tape


When I made this card, I hadn't received the actual stamps - Bev kindly sent me the digital images and I was able to print them off to size. I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps Challenge - SSC#160 for the layout. I cut the polka dot panel to size and layered it on some black card and attached it to the card base. I forgot to add some silver string, so used a strip of silver shimmer washi and and thin strip of the polka dot panel to make my own. I stamped the gerbera image on white card and used Copics to create a rainbow coloured flower, cut it out and added some sparkle all over with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I attached the flower with some dimensional tape on the side that over hangs the dotty panel. I finished the front with a simple sentiment - I think there are some super words in this set. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card. On the white panel I stamped the polka dots in silver shimmer ink and added a bold word in the centre, I finished the panel by adding a couple of rainbow gerbera daisies. I wish you could get daisies like this for real!!!

The flower glimmers.
Love the silver washi and the
dots. Having the flowers
in the corners inside the
card was a great idea.
thanks for sharing.

These polka dots seem to be pretty versatile. That's great since I'm a beginner and looking for such stamps.

You've made me realise that I really should dress up the insides of my cards more. Love your rainbow gerbera.

While wandering around Blogland I saw your card on Sunday Stamps. It is so colorful and wonderful. Your background is so complimentary to your Rainbow Gerbera. Just wanted to stop by and say this is one awesome card.

Looks like you and me have both got rainbows on the brain this week although I'm not sure if all of mine have been REVEALED yet! Love the gerbera in those eye-catching colours and so pretty against the dotted BG. x
