[Uniko Studio] March Revisited Blog Hop - Beautiful Blooms I

Hello everyone! We are having a blog hop revisiting one of Uniko Studio's popular sets Beautiful Blooms I. Except this month we have a small twist since Bev is releasing some fabulous dies to go with the set. I was so excited to hear this, since those flowers always are begging to be cut - and this is just so much easier :)

  

Since the dies didn't reach me in time, I have created a card with just the re-visited stamp set. I was running off to my best friend's bridal shower and her colors are dark, royal purple. This was just the right amount of inspiration to get my started.

Forgive the lighting on the picture. It's completely off, and since I am not in possession of the card, I couldn't take another picture.

May You Live Happily Ever After
Stamps: (Beautiful Blooms I) Uniko Studio; (Big Day - Additions) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Royal Velvet, Plum Pudding) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko; (Perfect Match Hybrid Ink - Fresh Snow)
Embellishments: (Pearls - 3mm, 5mm) Mark Richards; (Stamp 'n Stuff Embossing Power - White Opaque) Stampendous!


I decided to emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder. Then I layered a bunch of white blooms with white hybrid ink, and chose to emboss the one white bloom to give it some layers. I was also trying to "shade" the flower in by sprinkling some embossing powder onto the sides.

A few pearls to finish the look. I will have to post up the wedding invites that I did for this shower, and you'll see how I kept it all in the same color scheme and style.

May You Live Happily Ever After

Hope you feel inspired with some samples. Make sure to stop by Stacey's and Gayatri's blog since this is the last blog hop - I will be so sad to see these two lovely girls go. They have been a true inspiration and I really enjoyed sharing an opportunity to design along side them.

On a more happy note, we also have one other person joining us - Gillian. I'm so glad to see join the team. Your Uniko Studio work has been really impressive thus far and I hope the rest of the fan base is just as equally excited.

Back to housekeeping: Bev is going to draw a winner for the stamp set AND the designer dies. In the meantime, I'm sending you off to fabulous, amazing Stacey.

Here the whole list for easy navigation ...
I hope you like what you're seeing. Hope to see your creations soon!

You've managed a great effect with the fading embossing, I really get the sense of a foreground and background. Lovely card.
