Uniko Studios August Release Day!

These are the final three cards I've made with the stamps and dies for Uniko Studio's August Release. All of these products are available for purchase starting today! Even better, there's a chance for you to win the entire release! Simply comment on every blog in the blog hop to win the ENTIRE release plus the Time clear stamp set. (If you win and have already purchased the release, a full refund will be given. If you already own the Time set, a gift certificate for the same price will be given.) You have until Wednesday, August 14 to comment. The winner will be announced on the Uniko blog and Facebook page. 


This first card came about when I was reminiscing yesterday about making a poinsettia out of the graphic flower stamp from the Time set, last December. I thought I would see how it would look made out of dies rather than stamps. I cut the solid shape in white and green, offset them and glued them together, before adding a full red outline and a trimmed red outline, to try and achieve the layered look of the petals. Some gold seedbeads for the centre finished this off nicely. I love the dramatic feel of the black and how well the flower pops off it!


This is one that I made the other day with the little stamp that has 3 hearts in a row from the Flower Power #3 set. It's so easy to stack them up perfectly and make a column of hearts like this.


Finally, I noticed that the single solid heart stamp fits perfectly into the outline heart stamp. The heart of the heart, so to say!

I hope that you've been inspired by all the cards that the DT and I have made this week! If you haven't seen them all yet, here are the links to the blogs of the DT members - pop by and have a look.

OMG you've done a fab job with these products, Ardyth. I love the horizontal hearts against the vertical score lines, and the colourful hearts are just wonderful. Where do you store up all these ideas, you're such an inspiration :) x

You've 'WOWed' me yet again, loving all your cards today, but I think my overall favourite is the poinsettia die card, I think I might just have to CAS(E) this for a stack of Christmas cards! Thanks for a lovely showcase of Uniko Studio products. Hugs Bev x

Hi Ardyth, wow, what a trio! :) All these three are lovely and really inspiring. My favorite might be the last one -who could resist two hearts in one heart! Sorry, I didn't quite know how to put this in English. :)
