Uniko - February Release Reveal & Blog Hop

YAY! It's RELEASE day at Uniko! And here are all five sets revealed in full:

 

 

 

What an amazing release! Are you reeling with all the gorgeouness Bev has on offer this month? So today it's make your mind up time - so easy really, just choose them all!

I've a few more cards to share with you today using each of the five new sets, so grab a coffee, put your feet up and enjoy.

I'm starting with my personal favourite - difficult to pick just one, but Uniko Style has just pipped the others in my heart. And I'm even loving it in my least favourite colours too!

Next up I'm reverting to the order the stamps were introduced over the past few days and it's the turn of Block Party Birthday.

I stamped all over the background using Background Builders Round in Circles before stamping over it all with Block Party Birthday. I've added bling with shimmer dots and Wink of Stella and a plain green mat to echo the green words.

I've used colour in a slightly different way on this next card which uses Originally Organic Additions. I added a pale colour to the insides of the stamped images and then outlined them with a darker colour - an experiment with colouring outside of the lines!

I've also tried to show how the stamp can be used in a different shape form its basic heart formation.

Then comes that wonderful Background Blocks Halftone. And for this card I've let it be used as a background by stamping it over a left over scrap of watercoloured cardstock. The Beautiful Blooms flower is a hard one to put in the shade, but I think the halftone more than stands up to its competition!

Finally I've made a WOW! card - just perfect for those occasions when you want to say well done in a WOW! way. This card will be winging its way to one of my grandsons to congratulate him on a sporting achievement.

  10. What an amazing showcase of this release Jane. I am loving the design and colours of your first card, it really highlights the possibilities of this set and I am with you on it being your FAVE of the release :) Love how you have paired Block Party Birthday with Round In Circles - genius. And your colouring outside the lines with darker shades a stunning result and one I may just have to CASE! I especially like your use of the heart wreath too, showing its versatility. You have made the Halftone shine in your Beautiful Blooms I card and they pair beautifully and I am sure your Grandson will LOVE the WOW card. Thank you SO much for all your hard work and beautiful showcasing of Uniko this week, you are truly appreciated. Hugs Bev x

  11. So many fun, cheery, bold and brilliant designs here Jane. I love the orange take on the Uniko Style blooms as soon I saw it on the DT blog. I love how you added that extra layer too in a different tone. Great ideas with the other sets, especially the block birthday BG - thought you'd gone with brushos like me but then realised it's the BG builders circles. I need to try that idea for colouring - neat and clever. Have a great weekend. x

  13. What fabulous ideas here, Jane! I love the blooms in orange - they are so bright and happy - and the way you have used the floral heart. Colouring outside the lines is obviously the future :) That halftone background really pops on the tag too. You have created an amazing release day gallery for us to enjoy!
