June 2016 Reveal, Release & Giveaway!

Hey & HAPPY Saturday!

There is no better way to start the weekend than with a release of new Uniko goodies...right?!

Well, I'm super happy you have stopped by today as today we get to see the two new clear stamp sets in their entirety, Oh and there is a GIVEAWAY too at the end of the post ;)

Ok, so lets have a look see at these new goodies...

The Tropical trend is still HOT at the moment and I just had to jump on the band wagon and put my take on the trend out there!


Paradise £9.00 - £9.95

Firstly, I'd like to introduce you to Bob, Bob the Toucan! Bob was originally drawn way back in 2007/2008 while I was at Uni, the jungle/tropical trend was evident back then too ;)

I've added in fun graphical modern styled Hibiscus flowers to compliment the paradise theme, which also work perfectly with the previously released Paradise Hummingbird set.

Lastly we have a lovely mini complimentary set called Paradise Leaves. This is not only a FAB add on set to the two mentioned above but is also FUN on it's own.

Now I have made the formal introductions how about some projects showcasing these two new clear stamp sets.




First up I decided to give Bob some inky love. He is simply stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I then used a trio of Copic markers to colour his bill. I used a black fine liner to add a little detail to his bill too. 

As I decided to use the new CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below I thought the new Paradise Leaves would provide a good backdrop. 




I used a trio of SU! inks to stamp the leaves, Bermuda Bay, Lucky Limeade and Tempting Turquoise. The tiny leaves are stamped in WPlus9 Mojito ink and the sentiment is from Simply Said.




Next I have a almost one layer floral card...




For this card I used the outline Hibiscus flower and 2 sizes of outline flowers from the Paradise clear stamp set. I used my favourite colour combination of Papertrey Inks Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores and SU! Lucky Limeade for the leaves.




The sentiment also from the set is stamped onto a piece of vellum and secured inside the card. I added a trio of SU! It's My Party enamel dots to add a little interest and a good dose of Wink Of Stella to the Hibiscus flowers.

This next card uses a combination of stamps from both the sets...



I started by stamping leaves from both the sets in a variety of WPlus9 and SU! inks. I then stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white CS to place over the middle of the stamped leaves adding a fussy cut Hibiscus flower using foam adhesive. I then went back in and added the trio of stamped tiny flowers to fill in some gaps between the leaves.




I have one last card to share with you today, one that we are making at my class today at The Paperlane...




This one firstly shows how the Hibiscus flower coordinates beautifully with the previously released Paradise Hummingbird

I started by using the solid Hibiscus flower stamp, which comes as two stamps. I have found it easier to stamp the stamen of the flower first, then the petals. Again I used my favourite Papertrey Ink trio of colours ;)

The hummingbird is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and embossed with stardust embossing powder, before being fussy cut out and adhered to the card using foam adhesive.




The new challenge HERE at Addicted to CAS is Aloha! So I thought I would enter this card over there too :)




Officially it is just me showcasing the new sets today, but I know DT Sarah P is sharing a card HERE using the new sets for her DT post over at Addicted to CAS. Be sure to stop on by and have a look :)

The Design Team will be joining me for a Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY on Saturday 25th June 9am BST. There will be a chance to win the entire June Release and the previously released Paradise Hummingbird clear stamp sets or an eGift Certificate to the same value.

HOWEVER, there is a chance to win an £10 eGift Certificate today, simply leave a comment on this post by Midnight Saturday 18th June 2016 to be in the chance of wining!

Both the new products are available HERE now to purchase, I have increased my stock levels again this month, so fingers crossed no-one will miss out.

Thank you for stopping by today and your lovely comments and support, they are all very much appreciated.

  23. Bev, these are absolutely wonderful! I'd love to bring some 'tropical paradise' into my so-not-tropical mountain town! Bob the Toucan is seriously awesome - and that coming from someone terrified of birds! Your showcases are fabulous! Apologies for being MIA with commenting: blaming it on trying to keep ahead of end-of-the-school tasks (June 30th...hanging in there!) as well as bike races to officiate on the weekends. Hope my 'thought bubbles of awe' have made it your way!
    Hugs~c
