Introducing ....... Kindness Blooms and Fun Flowers

Happy Tuesday ......

It's the final day of Introductions for the brand new launch from Uniko.   Tomorrow's the BIG release day ...... all the new products will be available on the Uniko website and we're going to have some fun with a Blog Hop and giveaways.

Before all that though there's a couple of things still left to show you ...... Kindness Blooms, a cute little floral stamp set that includes two really fun flowers, some useful little accent stamps and of course sentiments to match. 
We also have Fun Flowers ..... which is a fab little stencil designHere it is in action ...... how cute is this design!

I've simply used the whole stencil along with Distress Oxide inks (I'm seriously addicted to these at the moment)
I've brushed the inks through the stencil onto a larger piece of white cardstock, blending the different shades as I went along

I then cut the panel to fit a black 7x5 cardblank leaving white space at the bottom so that I could stamp my sentiment (the new Birthday sentiments come in handy again!) and also tiny strip of the black down one side

I added a strip of white card inked using one of the Oxide colours across the edge of the stenciled area just to give a cleaner finish, and then I added a few dots of Nuvo Jewel Drops to the centres of the flowers

Inside the card I just used one of the flowers from the stencil, masked off around it and used the Oxides again

It's such a pretty design .....

I also had a play with the new stamp set .....

I created my own little flower garden ......

Coloured with ZIG markers and a waterbrush.

I used one of the accent stamps for the flower centres, heat embossed in gold, and added a few splatters of ink onto the background

I used one of the small word stamps from the set to create my sentiment banner across the bottom

And added a little something on the inside ......

Well, that's it ....... the whole of the new release.  What do you think?  I do hope you love it as much as the Design Team.  Check out the Uniko Blog to see more fabulous inspiration.

Don't forget we have the big release tomorrow and the Blog Hop ..... see you then!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
It's been all go here this morning .... first off we had snow!!  Nowhere near as much as you guys in the UK but, the clouds are gathering again and it's so COLD!!
Then I had some furniture show up.  They weren't due until Thursday, but they rang and said could they deliver today.  So now I have my beautiful new dresser in the kitchen.  I can finally get the rest of my stuff put away.
Then the window guy came round to check out all the doors and windows.  We'd had some problems with a couple of the doors when we moved in so he's checked over the lot!  Let's see what he comes up with when I get the report back!

Now it's time for a coffee I think .... then it's back to the craft room.

Cheerio until next time .....


  1. Two fabulous cards. Great designs and super colours and I love the way you finished the insides xx
