[Uniko Studio] April 2013 Release - Introducing Flower Power

Hello Uniko friends! It's time for spring and I'm quite ready to be wearing all my spring & summery clothes. If you have kept up with fashion trends, then you know that bright colors, floral prints, geometric prints are quite in. Well, that was kind of my inspiration for today. So be forewarned and put on some sun glasses ;)

Are you coming from Nicki's blog? Then you're right on track. If not, you can start at Bev's blog to not make sure you don't miss out on all the inspiration. 

Did you see what Bev showed on Sneak Peek Day 2? A cute little graphic flower. Perfect for spring arriving, don't you think? Bev is always right on cue!

This gorgeous set is called Flower Power, and with a set of leaves & stem, flower heads and some every day sentiments, this makes it a nice versatile flower builder set.

I created a background with the flowers, cut out the silhouette of a flower head, and planted it all onto a card. Planted... get it? See what I did there? Har dee har har...

Thinking of You
Stamps: (Flower Power) Uniko Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Raspberry Fizz, White, Dark Chocolate) Papertrey Ink; (POW! Glitter Paper - Rocky Road) American Crafts
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No.1 Chewing Gum; No. 3 Lemon Drops; No. 4 Chicken Feed; No. 11 Brown Sugar) Ranger; (Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink
Embellishments: (Sequins - Pretty Pretty Pink, Summer Sun) Neat & Tanged; (Fabric Tape - Stripe Beige) Dailylike

Before I scare you off with my horrible puns, let's just revisit this. I created my own pattern paper by stamping the flowers in pink, then orange and then filled up whatever white space I could with yellow. This was so much fun - it was like being a kid and being turned loose on a rampid stamping session. Didn't really care where I stamped so long it made some pretty colors ;)

Next I stamped the back of my American Crafts Glitter paper with the silhouette image of the flower and then cut it out. It wasn't too hard but rather time consuming. And since the back of the glitter paper was lined with this shiny coating of plastic, the ink (which wouldn't dry in time) would just smear all over my fingers and then onto everything else. You know what would have been perfect here? A Flower Power die - just saying. (Bev - if you're reading this, it's a hint ;)

I also had this fabulous fabric tape in my stash. Since it wasn't broad enough for my taste, I just lined it up next to each other to create double the width. Easy peasy! And since the sequins were lying around my table, they made it onto this card as some centers and grounding for the sentiment.

Thinking of You

Can't say I didn't warn you on how bright it is ;) What would you make with this stamp set? How about a cute flower garden? Also, just a friendly reminder that Bev is drawing mystery prizes along the way during the Introductory posts from April 6th - 10th, so leave us your comments.
