Uniko Studio February Release & Blog Hop!

Monday, February 11, 2013

Good morning stampers! It's already time for a new release from Uniko Studio! I am showcasing two stamp sets today. The first is called Label Love: Birthday, and whatdya know, it's Uniko's first birthday today. The second is called Bright Butterflies. Make sure to read all the way down to the end of the post to find out how to enter for a chance to win the ENTIRE February 2013 Release! WOO!

The first card above is pretty self-explanatory. The second one uses both the solid and the polka dotted balloons. I stamped the kraft colored balloons first, leaving the bottom portion of the balloon cut off. Then the polka dotted ones were stamped on top. I wanted to just create a fun pattern that didn't necessarily look like balloons, and with the colors I used, it turned out kinda looking like Easter eggs, LOL! Oh well, I still like it. The top cardstock panel is popped up with dimensionals and a small strip of patterned paper is peeking out at the bottom.

The butterflies are heat embossed with white EP, and then I inked a sponge with teal ink and applied it to the white cardstock, leaving it to fade slightly at the bottom so the sentiment could pop on the white background. I added small black rhinestones on either side of the sentiment.

Along with the two clear stamp sets being released this month, there are FOUR new digital paper collections available as well! They include: Big Birthday Wishes, Bright Butterflies Additions collection, Classics Spring, and Eclectic Mix Spring. See the images below!

I hope you enjoyed my samples using the new goodies ;) Now, on to the details of the giveaway. All you need to do is participate in the Blog Hop and leave a comment on the designers' blogs!

  1. Fabulous cards!! I really like the bold stripes and texture on the first card, the "Easter Eggs" on your second card - it's supper. But the white butterflies are just stunning!

  2. Like Deborah I am loving the stripes & texture of the first card. I LOVE how you added the bow to the sentiment on the second card, such a cute idea. Think you'll be seeing this CASED!! And your third card I am loving the lush teal colour paired with the crisp white butterflies - stunning! Hugs Bev x
