June 2024 Reveal, Release, Brand Ambassador Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Hello to all!

Happy Saturday!


Time to reveal the June small new release today. All the products are so versatile with power pack designs created by very talented Bev!

Have you noticed the fabulous new website look.......? If not, visit now; all the latest products are available here!!!









So let's get started with my first card.



I created some dimensional hexagons in rainbow colors using different distress inks. Firstly, I masked the panel to create my design. Adhered my first layer of stencil applied the distress ink and then flipped the stencil, inking the dimensional hexagons one by one. The sentiment is from the everyday spring sentiments stamp set.




Created the diagonal offside stripes in bold colors inking twice. First in salty ocean distress ink and then picked raspberry ink by overlapping the stripes.
The sentiment in the center is from Big & bold Happy stamp set.




 For this card, I started by stamping some offset stripes on a white panel. Die cut a butterfly from this.
On my black card base adhered two layered of textured sheets in yellow and soft green. Stamped the pattern using Background blocks linear stamp set in rustic wilderness distress oxide.

Before adhering to the striped panel, I placed a piece of black CS under the butterfly for dimension.
I love you sentiment is from Flower power 9 stamp set. Finished it off with some black rhinestones.





How fun to play and match with some new designs to old ones!
This is what I thought of this set when I opened up my new goodies and came up with this fun idea, beautiful blooms and so whimsical!

First, I created some stripes by a masking technique using background builder offset stripes, and outlined the stripes using a black Sharpie pen. The cat is from Mid-Century Modern Purrfect Day. The blooms are from the Flower Power 9 stamp set and I watercolored them using my ZIG watercolor brushes.
The sentiment and the small hexagon elements from the Bee stamp set and placed some small rhinestones to enhance the beauty of this card!





Now some colorful blooms card using Flower Power 10 stamp set. At the bottom, I placed the scattered polka dots stencil and inked it in jet black ink. Stamped the blooms and leaves, watercolored them all. Added a thin black strip and placed some adhesive half-black pearls.





For my last card, I created a background pattern using the floral images from the Flower Power 10 set. I stamped the flowers and leaves multiple times using the last shadow ink.
Then watercoloured my florals and leaves using ZIG watercolor brushes. 
After creating my own background pattern, I adhered that panel to my black card base with matching color stripes. I heat-embossed the sentiment in white from the same set and finished it off with some rhinestones.
Yes, I was oohing and aahing over this for quite some time seeing the result!!

There is a giveaway, be sure to leave a comment on all Brand Ambassador blogs or on any social media for a chance to win the entire release before midnight 7th July 24.

Day 4...... Introducing: Flower Power 10

Hello everyone!

Happy Friday!

The day is so warm and humid today in Delhi. And this flower stamp gives some fresh air in the cool summery colors, June's new release stamp set Flowe Power #10.


I love this set so much and the card came together very quickly, and I really like it!




I die-cut a white panel and started stamping some flowers using Versamark black ink with some Hexagon leaves from the other newly launched set. Then I used the backside of this flower stamp for a solid look in summery colors. I kept it soft and simple and complimented with some rhinestones.
The sentiment at the top is from the same set. Adhered that panel to a grey-coloured cardstock panel.

Don't forget to come back tomorrow. with a blog hop and giveaway release!

Day 3 ..... Introducing: Background Blocks Offset stripes

 Hello to all!

Happy Thursday!


I am back with a few more ideas using the New release from Uniko: Introducing- Background Blocks Offset stripes!

 Have fun with some solid ombre offset stripes!


Created two simple CAS cards with this new release with fun sentiments to give love some Old stamps too!




To start my card, I stamped the solid offset stripes in shades of red using distress inks on a white stitched panel. 
The sentiment is from the Big & Bold Hello stamp set.






For this card, I used the same Blue distress oxides for the ombre effect technique. And masked the full image using masking tape. Then, it is inked from the reverse side to achieve this square pattern. The sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set.
I added a stitched frame panel in metallic sky blue.

Hope you all enjoyed the process.

Day 2 ...... Introducing: Flower Power #9

 Hello everyone!

Happy Wednesday!

Oh, my sweet bees!!

Welcome back to Day 2! Today Introducing the Flower Power series #9, another addition. This set has many elements with hexagon-shaped flowers and I adore the sweet buzzing bee with such cute sentiments.




I randomly stamped the honeycomb image with mustard seed distress ink for a grungy look on a white scalloped frame die-cut panel.
I stamped the bee with I miss you sentiment. Added the smallest hexagon flower in black, complimenting perfectly with this sentiment. 
At the bottom using the masking tape, stamped some flowers in black with rhinestones to glam up!







I am so positive that once you have tried the new Hexagon-shaped flowers, you will be amazed at how well they work and how beautiful the textures are! 
For this card, I created a rainbow color theme with hexagon flowers using different distress inks and bees amongst them, like a garden. The sentiment is from the same set. Added crystal clear pearl drops to the flower centre.

Super easy and cute.

Day1..... Introducing Ink & Flip Geometric Hexagon

 Hello to all!

Happy Tuesday!


I am excited to show the June first release product: Ink & Flip Geometric Hexagon Stencil! 

Great combination of Art and Math, the possibilities are endless!

This one may be for me. You can make many patterns using this ink & flip stencil and create a card for any occasion by changing colors, textures, and techniques!

Here is the first idea I had with my first try with the new two-layered Hexagon pattern stencil!




To create my background I placed my first layer of the stencil and applied distress inks. Then, I flipped my same stencil and inked again using a foam brush. In the center, you will get a hexagon. Now I adhered my second layer of the stencil to create a Pattern inside the Hexagon. The bee hive with a bee's knees with a sentiment from the Bee Happy stamp set.



I tried to keep a dimensional look for the guys in your life with my next design.
There is so much to notice in these pieces! The more you did, the more possibilities you saw.....!!




I created the geometric Hexagons in shades of brown with 3D dimensions at the center panel using the Hexagon pattern stencil. Masked both sides and applied Altenew peach perfect, dark chocolate, caramel toffee and paper bag ink. I trimmed the extra piece in length and added that trimmed piece using foam tape for the dimension with a Birthday sentiment from the Big & Bold Happy stamp set. 
It's got that retro, mid-century look that I love!

The addition of the loop idea came from my dear Bev's flower card and inspired me to add this beautiful flower black ribbon loop. In my opinion, it gives an aesthetic look, what do you think........! Finished it off with some rhinestones.

In the meantime, check out more inspirations by our fab Uniko Brand Ambassadors here:

Brand Ambassador Inspiration: Background Block MOD Builder stamp and stencil cards

 Hello friends!

Happy Monday!

Today I am showcasing the beautiful stamp and stencil from Uniko: Background Block MOD Builder!

Card 1

This Background Block MOD Builder stamp totally amazed me with its pattern block, so many possibilities. Do you agree with me!!!

I created a Masculine style card in grey tones! 


I started with a whole block from the upper side on a white panel and then the lower side using archival jet black ink. Then I filled the Neutral grey color using a Copic Marker in the whole pattern. I adhered that patterned panel to the black base card. Added another white panel with a sentiment I Miss You from the Just Because stamp set. Simply finished it off with some black pearls.



Card 2

The next card showcases the Background Block Mod Builder stencil with the same pattern in multicolored spring gardening. I used only the centre part of the stencil.



The repeating pattern makes it perfect. I used different Distress inks to create the pattern and cut the panel from the center. The sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set and is finished with a few white pearls in the center of the flowers.

Working with these two was so much fun!
Happy crafting!

March Non- Release Spring Botanicals Brand Ambassador Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Hello everyone!

Happy Monday!

Spring has already arrived with so many beautiful blooms! Today is a bright and sunny day here after two days of rain........ I made two cards for today's hop and making me smile out loud because I know spring is already in the air YAY!

We are giving love to the Spring Botanical series!

To make this card I used the Spring Botanicals Daffodil stamp set. Since our daffodils just started blooming this week in my park, why not use this beautiful stamp and give it some love!!




I stamped the daffodil flower in Black archival ink. I paired it with the Background Blocks splatter stamp set using DI.



Then I watercolored the flower using the distressed inks.




I stamped the sentiment using black archival ink and layered it to my metallic olive green CS.




In the end, finished it off with some black sequins. Love the watercolor look!


Card 2





I used the same set in a different style for my other card.





On a piece of white CS, I stamped the image using DI. I watercolored it with the same inks and then fussy cut it for a dimensional look. To create my background, I paired it with the Mid-Century Modern Squares stencil. The mowed lawn ink is blended on the bigger white panel and the squeezed lemonade ink is blended on the small white panel to match my daffodil flower. I love the soft look I achieved on this.




The sentiment is from the same set and I finished it with some lemon and apple green sequins.
I had so much fun with these. Hope I inspired you!

 Create a birthday card using Uniko products and share it at the Uniko Birthday Linky party!

Today I created something different from my usual style to celebrate Uniko's 12th Birthday Blog Hop!

I created a card by adding foil using a stencil without any lamination. The result is pretty good........ beautiful and easy!




I took a textured white CS first.




 I took a quilted stencil, applied foil magic mixed media paste and let it dry slightly. When it settled I placed a piece of red foil on this stenciled background and ran it through my sizzix machine for the well-designed image.




The foil shines when the light hits on it!




I used some of the accents from the Mid-Century Modern Florals stamp set and created a design. The sentiment is from the Mid-Century Modern Frames set. I added a red-glittered CS layer before adhering that white panel to my card base.
There is plenty of time to join. The deadline for submission is midnight (GMT) on Thursday 29th February 2024.

Brand Ambassador Birthday Inspiration Cards!

 

Hello everyone!

Happy Friday!

I am on Uniko Blog today! We are celebrating Uniko's 12th Birthday this month! Bev has so many surprises this month with some new releases, blog hops, and giveaways as well! 

I made two Birthday cards with CAS styles to celebrate this fab Birthday month!!

I have used the Background blocks Mid-Century Modern II design on a grey panel. I love this background block, it is so cool!





This is a great retro design for creating a card in one go. I heat-embossed the design using Wow Primary Ebony EP. I colored the semi-circle blocks using my Chameleon pens. Adhered that panel to another black panel on a grey card base.
The birthday sentiment completes the design from the Up & away stamp set.


Now my other card has some shimmery touch in pastel colors.





The white pearl embossing powder looks so well on this textured white paper. Again colored the semi-circle blocks using Chameleon pens. Adhered the white panel to shimmery peach CS and again on a textured white card base. The sentiment is from the Mid-Century Modern Frames set.

Simple card but perfect for celebrations! I hope you feel inspired to make some Birthday cards.

BA inspirations cards: Love

 Hello everyone!

Happy Monday!

Today I am on the Uniko blog with two projects to share using some goodies from UNIKO! I had fun playing around with them. As you all know Valentine's Day is approaching soon.

First up I got all rainbow inky stripes paired with Love!

The Big & Bold love stamp set features a beautiful bold Love word accompanied by some accent images and sentiments and I paired it with Background Blocks Horizontal stripes and Pinstripes stamp set.

These rainbow theme stripes match and show off the fun striped heart image.




Firstly I inked my horizontal stripe image using some newly radiant neon inks set of 4 and I love the result. Then I purposefully stamped the pinstripe look on these stripes. I inked my striped heart and fussy cut it. Then I stamped bold love sentiment along with accompanying sentiment All my. 


For the next card, I combined Decorative doilies digital paper with scattered heart images in a soft radiant neon color.




Firstly I used all 3 sizes of the smaller hearts from the same set. I colored the largest small heart using my blue ZIG watercolour brush pen.
I created a pocket using the decorative doilies paper print. The love sentiment is hand-cut using berry wine pigment ink accompanied by always sentiment. I popped up the pocket above the scattered hearts. I also added some iridescent hearts for more interest.
That's just where my creativity flows! Hope, I inspired you to make some Valentine's cards for your loved ones!

Happy crafting!
