Introducing: Flower Power #3 (Uniko Studios August Release)

Hope you've got lots of time today - I made 4 cards for the introduction of the new Uniko Studio Flower Power #3 set!




The first card uses the solid image of the flower (and solid leaves from Flower Power #1 - isn't it great how all these sets work so well together?!). I stamped everything in bright summery colours and then went back in with Copics to create highlights and shading for more depth.


This second card is a CASE of a card by fellow Muse DT memberMarion Vagg. I love how the copic shading on the coloured cardstock really makes the image pop!



Next up, a simple sort-of-pattern using the little 3 heart stamp and one of the sentiments. I was inspired by this week's Dynamic Duos colours - Strawberry Slush and Daffodil Delight (I used Marigold Morning). I'm too late to link up, but I still love how they look together!




Finally, one for the boys. I love to look at the stamps themselves and turn them around to see what else we can make with them. When I flipped these flowers over, I saw 'Raggedy Ann' hair. I stamped it and created a face by tracing an oval nestability with a Copic Multiliner, added ears, eyes and a mouth (courtesy of The Stamps of Life). I love how he turned out!

If you didn't come here via the blog hop, don't forget that the whole DT has more inspiration for you:

and  August Guest Designer: Ardyth (that's me)!

Tomorrow we're introducing dies that coordinate with Uniko's very first stamp set!

Wow Ardyth. Such eye candy from all your cards. The first one is my fav though - so happy. And I love that you gave the Copic technique a go. Looks awesome! And to use the flower as hair....wow! Clever!

You, my friend, are a wizard!! ALL these cards are CASEable sensations, but that face with his hair made out of the flower top? Shut up!!

shirley-bee said...

Every one a stunner! I shall be turning all my stamps upside down now!

Kelly Griglione said...

You know, I don't think you could create a better moppy hair stamp if you tried ... it's uncanny how perfect this is! I bet you were grinning ear-to-ear when you finished this one, right?!? Brilliant, my friend!

Your tone-on-tone card is so intriguing. Must remember that.

Denise Bryant said...

Joyce said...

Your cards are just fabulous. I really like that new flower.

Jackie said...

WOW, you sure are on a card making roll! All are fantastic but the first and second one are stunning!

Ren-Yi said...

OOOO pure genius. i was so in love w/ your flowers and was wondering how you got the flowers to stamp so well with depth. Love your idea with copics. and then i lost all train of thought after i saw your lil dude. what a great way to think outside the box. teehee.

Mrs Harry said...

Brilliant cards Ardyth. Love the shading. How did you get the white outline on the pink flower?

Tanis Scott said...

Wow, I thought the first card was absolute perfection, and then the second one blew my socks off! It's a amazing how much punch a tone on tone project han have, especially with a touch of white or black as a highlight.
