Uniko May Release day

Today is the May release day for the Uniko. I hope you had enjoyed the sets so far, and we have more inspirations today to showcase the stamps for you.

Let's have a look at them...


Background Blocks Doodle Flower £4 / £4.95
Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017

This is a simple One layer card. I stamped the set using lawn Fawn Hippo ink, and used markers to add color, and I stamped the sentiment on it in pink shade of ink, and colored it using a marker, and added a cosmo flower using a foam adhesive, a very simple card.
                               Adding this card with Make My Monday Challenge - May flowers

Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe £4 / £4.95
Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017

For this card I stamped the stamp in shades of pink in no particular order, and then added the embossed bloom on vellum, and stamped the sentiment in a darker shade of pink, from another older set. Finished off with a few pearls. Another pink card.

Adding this for Simon Wednesday Challenge
A hint of Pink

I am going with the soon to be parents and hoping its a girl 😀


Happy Succulents £9 / £9.95
Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017

I stamped the succulents in SU wild wasabi ink, and used a green marker to color and added some maroon dots to the the edges, the sentiment is from Originally organics set, and I stamped in red ink from Altenew. I edges the front panel using a chipboard strip, and one of the succulents is added using a foam adhesive.

Adding this with CRAFTSNEED
Anything Goes


I am sticking with the pink theme for this card as well. Another one layer, and I just used the loose succulent to stamp in Altenew pink ink, and used the forest green for the leaves, I have used the originally Organics set too. I decided to let the leaves be as outlines.  Stamped and fussy cut the sentiment and laded using a foam adhesive on a coiled white floss. and finished off with a few jewels.

Anything Goes 

Inspired by the flowers

Pure Florals: Lily £15 / £15.95
Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017

I have gone bit wild with the lilies, actually this coloring isn't showing of well in the pictures, but in actual you can see all the defined lines pretty well. I am out of my comfort zone for this card, I usually don't make this much crowded cards, but sometimes I go crazy!😂😂😂
So I used the squeezed Lemonade distress ink to stamp and color on a water color paper, and fussy cut to add. I kind of arranged it in a bouquet fashion, I hope you can see what I see!
The BG is sponged with a bubble stencil in tumbled glass, I added the sentiment on the top.

For this card I used the color pencils to add color, and the front is edges with a chipboard to one side and rounded on one corner. I decided to add glossy accents to mimic the dew drops.
The sentiment is added  sideways. a few jewels to finish off.



Adding this with :
 Seize the birthday

TIMEOUT Challenge
 Flowers with the optional twist of Kissing


All the above were made by 29th April, and then that evening I received the sad news that a very dear friend of mine has passed away, and that news has thrown me out of my routine, and all I was doing nothing, really nothing! I managed a card after a week yesterday, you might have seen on my Instagram feed.
And this card is made just now, and its 11 am my time, and I am writing the post to live at 4pm my time.
It was a quick card. I just felt that I hadn't done justice to the lily set yet, so another try here to show you guys how cool this bold floral stamp it. I went ahead and stamped all over in random using both the florals.
And used a yellow and green zig clean color marker to add and blend the color with a water brush
The sentiment is stamped in black and heat embossed using a clear EP on vellum. I finished of with a few black jewels.
