[Uniko Studio] April 2014 Release - Bonus Design Team Blog Hop

Hi everyone. We are finally able to celebrate the April Release the Uniko Studio way. Poor Bev has been battling all those "not in her control" factors, but we all finally have those products in our hands and wanna show you some ideas with these new cool stamps.

This card showcases Background Builders: Vines and since Mother's Day is around the corner, this is the perfect set.

Background Builders: Vines

The inspiration for my card came from watching this video by the ever so talented Jennifer McGuire. I picked gold as my center, focal point and this nice, big sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #5. I started with embossing the center sentiment with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.

Always

I started with stamping the larger blooms in Eggplant, followed by adding some of the smaller flower accents in Ocean and Winter. I then tried to fill in the white spaces with the second largest flowers in the set Lollipop. I love that the roses come in solid as well as the details of the petals. With just two stamping passes, the cute pink roses come quickly to life. I love the added dimensions that the roses have, don't you? After that I stamped a bunch of little detailed dots in Delicata Gold to tie everything together.

Always

The background is Background Builders Circles stamped in Versamark and then embossed with clear Stamp 'n Stuff embossing powder. This just finishes the card up together with a little bit of more detail without detracting from the center.

Make sure to visit all the girl's creations. Here is the list for easy perusing.

Bev will also be drawing a lucky winner amongst the blog to win the entire April Release or a gift certificate of equal value, if you already own the goodies. You have until May 30th, 11:59 BST.
