Both of these stamps belong to the Background Blocks series and just as it says on the tin they're great for using as backgrounds.
First I'm sharing a couple of cards I made with Doodled Flower:
I stamped the image twice and then cut three strips and added the colours. I added a blue horizontal strip and a die cut greeting to finish off my card.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Doodled Flower
Promarkers: arctic blue, azure, china blue, indigo blue
Die: Lawn Fawn, hello
For my next card I used nearly the whole block and added distress ink on top using a sponge applicator. I'm wondering if any of you have noticed the schoolboy error that I've only just spotted? I'm only pointing it out so that you don't make the same mistake - mmm the hearts are upside down.
I added a vertical strip and an embossed sentiment from Explosion Additions to finish off my card.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Doodled Flower, Explosion Additions
Inks: Ranger distress, picked raspberry, mustard seed, spiced marmalade; Versamark, clear
Embossing: Ranger Superfine, white
My next two cards use the other new stamp in the Background Block series - Horizontal Stripe. This is such a useful stamp and for my first card I paired it up with I Love Tea.
I stamped the stripes onto card and adhered it to black cardstock before die cutting a tag shape. I then over stamped the stripes with the sentiment. I stamped the tea cup onto a scrap of card matching the floral colours to the stripes, cut it out by hand and popped it onto foam pads to add dimension.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe, I Love Tea
Inks: SU, sweet sugarplum; Versafine, onyx black
Die: MFT Die-namics, Stitched Traditional Tags
My last card uses both the stamps being introduced today. I chose a rainbow of colours for the stripes and used my stampin' write pens to ink up the stripes. I kinda like the way using pens doesn't quite give full coverage and adds the illusion of texture.
I added a snippet of doodled flowers with the centres filled in with nuvo drops and a sentiment from Simply Said to finish off my card.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Doodled Flower & Horizontal Stripe, Simply Said
Ink: SU, stampin's write pens, real red, pumpkin pie, daffodil yellow, mossy meadow, pacific point, blackberry bliss, rich razzleberry
Embellishments: Nuvo drops, English mustard
