It's release day at Uniko

As it says at the top of this post it's time for the full May release at Uniko.
All the stamps the DT have previewed over the last few days are now available on the website and in person at today's Happy Stampers Festival in Port Sunlight until 4pm. So if have a ticket ( sorry no tickets available on the door) and you want to meet some of the DT, why not pop over and say hello and treat yourself to some of the release.
I'm heading over there too but wont be on the stand other than to say hi to Bev and the girls, as my bestie is staying with us and coming with me for a bit of a girly day out.

So first card off the rank is this one using a leftover strip from my card here.


I teamed it with some of the die cut flowers from here, a fussy cut leaf from the Nature's Treasure's II stamp set and a sentiment from the Birthday Celebrations set. The leaf was inked with Twisted Citron DOx and the flowers were coloured with Copics. The composition reminds me of the fresh green of new shoots in the garden with the addition of pretty flowers.

My second card again uses the leftover from an earlier card and the same Birthday Sentiment repeatedly stamped and embossed with white EP on a strip of black card and mounted on matching pink card stock. A few sequins complete.


This third card also uses the rotating stencil technique, this time with the Honeycomb stencil.


Using the blue card and ink gives a more masculine look to this card than the pink of the flower one above. I used an old Spellbinders oval to cut the scalloped edge. The stamped and embossed Simply Said Blocks II and a few dots of Glossy Accents complete.

When I made the first card with the Organic Additions stamps and dies I thought that the aperture would make a good shaker element when filled with acetate so here is one in purple and gold.

My base is purple and I coloured the gold embossed pattern with a deep violet Zig pen.

My final card shows that you don't need to use the dies simply to cut out the stamps but can be used on their own. The large explosion stamp is simply stamped onto the base card before the addition of the die cut ones.


So have we tempted you this week? Hope so and should you have tickets for today's Happy Stampers Festival don't forget to say hello to us on the Uniko stand.
If you can't make it then simply check out the rest of the DT along with our GD Anna.

  35. Echoing the others in being dazzled by the array of inspired, lovely showcases you've featured here - as well as throughout your intro posts. I'm particularly taken with your purple/gold shaker and am especially thrilled that you're sharing this beauty in the Inkspirational gallery. I think a few should wander over to the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge, too (hint, hint *grin*).
    Hugs~carol
