Uniko June Release Full Reveal and Blog Hop
Good morning. Have we whetted your appetites with the latest Uniko release? Well just to show you how fab the sets are here are a few more ideas.
Here is one card using the large lemon stamp from Organically Zesty.
As with my orange in the introducing post here, I watercoloured this large stamp and fussy cut it out. On another panel of MM paper, I stamped the BB Grid a couple of times diagonally, with Versamark, not being too careful about full coverage. In fact after I added the EP but before heat setting it, I removed patches of the EP with a fine brush. Once heat embossed, I added a wash of Mermaid Lagoon DI and left it to dry. The panel was trimmed to leave a border when added to my base card and the the lemon was placed in the top right. On matching card, I cut a banner and stamped the sentiment.
My second card uses the Zesty stencil but instead of using the whole panel, I die cut the larger segments. I found that an old Spellbinders die (Standard Circles Large, next to smallest) embossed a line in exactly the right place on the slice to leave a gap that suggested pith and peel.
Once the slices were cut out, I inked the outside edge and blended out the colour to soften the whiteness left buy cutting them out. On some scrap card, I stamped the BB Diagonal Stripes twice in Altenew's Obsidian and stamped the sentiment on another strip of white card. The stripes were added to one side of the A6 base card and the sentiment strip added before layering on the die cut slices.
This next card card was a result of an experiment. I wondered what sort of rainbow the wrong side of the rainbow stamps would make. It worked pretty well until the last section which is solid, so I fussy cut a mask and stamped the final arc, then removed the mask, I quite like the look.
A few stamped and fussy cut clouds were added and the same cloud die was used to create the bottom panel as on this card, was stamped with the sentiment from Beautiful.
Finally I've combined the rainbow stamp with the raindrop stencil to create this slimline card.

Sneak Peeks Part 2
What did you think of the two sneak peeks we shared yesterday? I hope you are as excited as we are to see them in full swing. You will have to wait until tomorrow though for that, as today we're back with 3 more sneak peeks.
First we have a new addition to the Background Builders collection. This product has been available since February, but didn't get a formal introduction, so we're giving it one this month. I am sure, like all of the geometric based background builders stamp sets, it will be a useful addition to your collection!
That's all for sneak peeks for this release. It might be small but it packs a punch! I do hope you will join Bev and the rest of the Brand Ambassadors tomorrow for our first full introduction.
