[Uniko Studio] Design Team Blog Hop - Background Builders Lattice Revisited

Hello everyone! We had a glorious sunny weekend - a good teaser to what spring would look like. Sadly the weather forecast is showing dropping temperatures for the rest of the week. I'm so bummed. On other glorious news fronts, I have friends visiting soon from Germany and it's going to be packed week and a half, but I'm super excited. We saw them over Christmas break, but it's never too soon to see far-away friends again! I take whatever I can get.

However, I'm here to revisit an older set from Uniko Studio. This week we're taking another spin at Background Builders Lattice.



I love this set. I took a bold color approach (craving spring to arrive!) and wanted to show you how backgrounds don't have to be in the background. It can also be bold & beautiful.

Stamps: (Background Builder Lattice) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Smokey Shadow, Raspberry Fizz) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Stamp 'n Stuff Embossing Powder - Opaque White) Stampendous!; (House of Three - Soiree: Dimensional Stickers, Flags) Pink Paislee


I really found inspiration from the Soiree collection, where I remembered seeing gorgeous lattice in the patterns. And the yellow and pink are beautiful and bold colors that were perfect. That's how I decided to pull some Smokey Shadow card stock and  added some white embossing for the background. Isn't it stunning?

We've had a taste of Spring but it seems far away today as the snow is back! Lovely to see the BRIGHT colours on your card today & the white embossing is so striking & the lattice pops off the card beautifully & draws focus to the cake on the card. Hugs Bev xx
