As we didn't have the chance to celebrate Uniko's fab June release, we have decided to do a blog hop to showcase these stamps to best effect. Have you seen them yet? I have to say that I am in love with the toucan, tropical leaves and hibiscus. I genuinely couldn't stop making cards with them so apologies for the photo heavy post :)
Here is what I made.....
I simply inked through a square mask and added a lovely hibiscus and sentiment.
I looked up toucans online to see how their beaks are coloured - there are a number of variations and I went with a colourful combination of red and green here. The leaves add some background interest.
This card features the outline hibiscus stamped in lilacs and purple with a die cut frame to create some texture/interest. I like how this looks.
I paired the toucan with the outline hibiscus here and went with an orange and black beak!
Finally I simply stamped two hibiscus flowers and popped up a sentiment - a fresh, CAS card.
There are just so many ways to go with these stamps and sentiments. Here are the sets; Paradise and Paradise Leaves:
Oh, and they work brilliantly with the previously released Uniko hummingbird too!
The rest of the DT have lots more to share with you and, as with all Uniko blog hops you can win prizes too! Head over to the Uniko blog to find out more.
Thanks for bearing with me and for stopping by :)
