BIG June Release Design Team Blog Hop!


I'm SO happy you've stopped by today as it's the BIG June Release Design Team Blog Hop! Back on the 11th June HERE when Uniko Studio released the latest products many of the Design Team members were away on their jollies and so I though it would be nice to have another release day hop so that everyone could join in. This also means that there is another PRIZE up for grabs which will be announced at the end of the post!

All the products release back on the 11th can be viewed HERE and HERE, so I won't bore you with that again instead I'll jump straight to a few projects...

On this first card I have used 3 of the June Release clear stamp sets, Flower Power #2, Background Builders Chevrons & Natures Treasures I. I used the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below for the position of all the elements and I used the current ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below for my colour scheme. 

I'm pleased with how this card turned out by kind of wished I had added some grey chevrons to the note book page die cut to add a little more interest. Or perhaps have stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the note book page instead of underneath.

My next card today uses another of my favourites from this release (as some of you may know already!)...

Yep, it's Beautiful Blooms! This time I paired the blooms with some white embossed chevrons and a sentiment from FONTiments - Birthday. I used the current Play Date Cafe challenge colours again seen HERE and below as I'm really liking the combo! 

In hindsight again I wished I had not added the black leaves to the middle flower which has a good splash of glitter!

I've one more card to share with you all before we get to the hopping! This card is more masculine and uses another 2 of the June Release clear stamp sets...

I combined Accent Essentials: Arrows and the HAPPY from All Occasion Sentiments #2, the birthday sentiment is from FONTiments - Birthday. I wasn't completely happy with this card either! Mainly due to the placement of the two arrows on the lower right, they're not quite aligned with the sentiment. 

Ok, thats enough from me lets get to the hop! Now, like with all Uniko Studio's Release Day hops there is a PRIZE up for grabs for this hop as it is still technically a Release Day hop! The prize is the ENTIRE June Release (6 stamp sets) or the equivalent if you already own them. I'm also throwing in a few surprises too. All you have to do to be in the chance of winning is to comment along the hop and you have until Mignight July 1st to comment. The winner will be drawn and announced here on the blog on the 2nd July.
