Uniko May Release


I am popping in to share some cards made with the fab May release from Uniko which is due to go live on Saturday, 6 May.  Today we are introducing two background block stamps - Doodle Flower and Horizontal Stripe.  Each of these stamps is so versatile and will work with lots of card designs....

Firstly here is what I made with Horizontal Stripe:

I inked up the stripes with Hero Arts Navy ink and used them across the bottom of the card base and to paper piece the sails on the ship from Uniko's Nautical Treasures.  The stripes are a great width for backgrounds and for adding details too.  The sentiment is from a set coming later this week :)

The Doodle Flower background block has a lovely, loose sketchy feel:

I simply white embossed it and inked over with distress inks.

Here I stamped it several times to cover the card base in black ink and combined it with a whimsical style flower die from Sizzix.  Another sentiment from a set in this release.....

I hope you like these designs.  The rest of the DT have fab inspiration for you:

You can find more information about the May release over at the Uniko blog and I shall be back tomorrow with another gorgeous stamp set to share :)
Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Ooh how inspired with your stripey nautically themed card! And if that weren't enough your 2 floral cards are pretty amazing too! Fab xx

  2. Genius use of the stripes on the first card, so wish I'd had that idea. The florals are gorgeous too!

  3. These are absolutely stunning, Love them all but the one that catches my eye most is the boat and your paper inventive and what wonderful inspiration!!

  4. 3 lovely cards Sarah, but the first one with the stripes is really a fun card.

  5. Such pretty cards to showcase the new flowers and stripes! The first: genius! Love the stripes!

  6. You are so clever Sarah. Loving each of these and all so different. I'm stunned at your nautical dream card! What a fantastically inspiring creation and brilliant for those guys. Yummy colour combo and inky blending on that second one and the framing works so well with the BG image then WOW! A complete BG of flower power! Feels like I've stepped back in time! (not that I was around in the swinging 60's!) Hugs x

  7. Beautiful examples for the new stamp sets. I find masculine cards hard to make, so your first example is BRILLIANT for inspiration.

  8. Love the boat with the striped sails - such a great use of the stamp. And those doodle flowers are so pretty!

  9. Wow ! Gorgeous showcase of these new stamps sets ! I really love the nautical card, what a clever idea ! I also love the doodled background set, seems to be very versatile ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

  10. Using the stripe for the sails was a fantastic idea, Sarah. It pulls the whole card together. I love the versatility you showed with the background stamp. Both of your cards are delightful.
