Uniko Studio February Release!

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Hello and welcome to this exciting day over at Uniko Studio! Today they are celebrating their 3rd birthday! What an accomplishment! It would mean so much to Bev over at Uniko if you stopped by the blog today and wished her and Uniko a very happy birthday! :D

To celebrate, they are releasing FOUR new stamp sets today. All the sets are now available to purchase here. If you see a favorite, I highly suggest snatching it up quickly because I think this could be a very popular release!

As you may have seen over the last few days, I have shared some sneak peek projects with you leading up to this release. I have had such a blast creating with these new sets.

Now you can see the full sets below...

BALLOON BASH


CLASSIC NUMBERS


BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS II


SIMPLY SAID BIRTHDAY



Aren't they amazing?!?!

Now I have to share with you what I created using my FAVORITE set from this release...Beautiful Blooms II (and also Simply Said Birthday)




I'm a big fan of the watercolor look, but I haven't used it a lot lately, so I thought it was about time I did. This card was very simple to do! I started with a trimmed down piece of watercolor paper. Then, I just brushed on the four different colors, one at a time and let it dry. Next, I stamped the sentiment. The flower was stamped twice, the second time I used the masking technique to achieve this look. Then a thin piece of twine was wrapped around the watercolor paper, and then attached to the card base. I hope I've inspired you today!


I am entering this in the CAS-ual Fridays CFC136 Challenge: Must love watercolor.
