Still in Paradise!


I'm back today with a few more projects that we made at my class at The Paperlane yesterday using the NEW Uniko June Release clear stamps. 

If you missed the Release, Reveal & GIVEAWAY post yesterday you can check it out HERE and there is still time to comment and be in the chance of winning a £10 eGift Certificate.

Ok, so onto some cards and inspiration...

Another 'Bob' card! He's kinda perfect for those pesky masculine cards ;) I hope I didn't go 'too' floral by adding a pink hibiscus..? But Hey Ho, Hawaiian shirts often feature a floral or two, right..?

I did opt out of adding Wink Of Stella to the hibiscus flower though ;) The sentiment is from Simply Said and the die cut is Reverse Confetti.

Next up is another masculine card...

For this card I opted to use just the Paradise Leaves set and kept it super CAS. I masked off a section at the bottom of my matt layer and stamped the leaves in SU! Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade & Bermuda Bay. The outer line leaves each side are stamped using WPlus9 Appletini ink. 

I aded a piece of Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine to hide where I masked and 'ended' the leaves and again the sentiment is from Simply Said.

Lastly today I have a tropical floral card...

This card uses the solid hibiscus stamp, which comes in two parts, the petals and the stamen. Even though from the MANY photos I took of hibiscus flowers whilst in Hawaii and on a recent trip to Butterfly World, the majority of the stamens are mainly a lighter shade of the petals with just a small amount of yellow/orange. I decided to still make the stamps separate to make stamping them different colours easier, after all they can be any colour we want them to be on our cards, well I think so anyway! 

The flower petals are stamped in Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise with Summer Sunrise (PTI) used for the stamens. I found it easier to stamp the stamens first and then stamp the petals, though if I had a MISTI it would be even easier ;)

After stamping the flowers I fussy cut them out and adhered them to my card. I then went and added the leaf detail and finished the card off with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and a sentiment from Simply Said.

Ok, that's all from me today. I will be back tomorrow with more to share AND Stamp Of The Week will also be back HERE on the website blog.
