... Morning! Welcome back, today we're introducing two more new sets from the upcoming Uniko
release. I'm going to start with the latest addition to the Background Builders series - Happy Hexagons. I really like these stamps and I made two cards:
Uniko - Background Builders Happy Hexagons, Originally Organic Additions, Bee Happy, Simply Said Blocks II
Gina K - Dusty Rose, Red Hot, Tangerine Twist, Wild Dandelion, Jelly Bean Green, Blue Raspberry, Wild Lilac, Lovely Lavender, Black Onyx, Sweet Corn, Sweet Mango
White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Gems; Gina K Wreath Builder Stencil
I started with the one-layer get well card. I used the sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#285
, the colours are from The Paper Players - PP#405
, and the theme comes from Cardz for Guyz - C4G#201
. I used my MISTI to work out where to stamp each image, took a photo and then had fun stamping. I think this is a bright, cheery card and perfect when feeling rough. I've left the inside blank.
Next is the square card. This one is totally different; I used the pretty large outline hexagon image to create a rainbow wreath or flower! I used my Gina K wreath builder stencil to position the card and stamp the flower. Once finished, I added a bold sentiment in the centre. I layered the finished panel on black card and attached it to a square card base. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel stamped the hexagon at the corners. I'm submitting this card to AAA Cards - AAA#121
where the theme is friendship.
I'm submitting both cards to Darnell's Twofer Card Challenge - TCC#08
where the theme is Geometric. I've been wanting to play along with this challenge for ages, but this is the first time I've actually managed to get my act together and make some cards!!
The second stamp set that we're introducing today is simply called Beautiful - and it is!! Here's my very clean and simple card:
Uniko - Beautiful
Distress - Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry; Gina K - Black Onyx
White Lustre Card; Uniko Stencil - Lattice; Nuvo - Clear Shimmer Brush
I used masking tape to create a strip towards the bottom of the card. I stamped the flowers to the left and used masks to create a group of three flowers. Leaving the masks in place I put a stencil over the card and inked the background. Removing the masks makes it look like the stencilled pattern goes behind the flowers. I finished the front by adding a simple sentiment and lots of shimmer to the flowers. I've left in the inside blank for my own message. I'm submitting this card to The Flower Challenge - TFC#23
where they want one-layer cards. I've taken a photo to show all the lovely sparkle on the flowers:
That's all from me today - don't forget to visit Uniko and join in with the blog hop and leave some comments as you go! See you again tomorrow for the last of our introductions.
