Uniko Studio June 2018 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hello,

Welcome to the Uniko Design June 2081 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY! You know what that means: inspiration + prizes!  

Bev has invited the team to use a product that needs some more 'stage time' - and this month, the Beautiful Blooms trio are the chosen ones: 



                     Beautiful Blooms I Clear Stamp Set          Beautiful Blooms I Designer Dies

Beautiful Blooms I can be bought as a clear stamp set and designer die bundle HERE.






Bev's thinking / reasoning in designing the Beautiful Blooms series was to have some modern blooms that didn't necessarily reflect a particular flower, leaving them open to interpretation.  I think we can all agree: these blooms are filled with possibilities!

The original Beautiful Blooms has been in my stash since it was launched way-back-when and its seen plenty of use! Below are two of my favourite 'oldies'...

  

For this challenge, however, I decided to do something that I've never done with this set: straight up stamping of the blooms.  I was inspired by Bev's description of how this set came to be:

Beautiful Blooms I is a gorgeous floral set inspired by Russian vintage wallpaper. This fun, modern graphic floral can be used to create stunning focal points or all over backgrounds for your creative projects.

Soooo....thus inspired, I created 'my' version of a floral background and paired it with a sentiment from Originally Organic Additions.


The floral pattern makes me smile! I already have ideas for at least two more cards featuring these sets...stay tuned!

That's it from me...time for you to visit Bev and the rest of the team to see their *Beautiful Blooms*....

Bev
Carol You are here

Beautiful card, Carol ! I don't know how Russian vintage wallpaper looks like but I remember when I was a child to see this kind of wallpaper in a lot of houses and even as furnishing (curtains, cushions...). I never think of this stamp set to make such a floral background but I definitely love yours with those soft colours. Very delicate and feminine card with a beautiful sentiment too ! Fabulous showcase. Have a fabulous and crafty week ! Hugs x

Beautiful all stamped BG Carol, great color choices, and the splatters make it even better.

Your oldies are certainly goodies Carol but also loving your new 'vintage, Russian-style wallpaper inspired' all over background take with BB I. Simply stunning and oozing delicious colour combos on the whole trio. Super elegant and a wonderful showcase of this set. x

Julie B said...

Love your interpretation of wallpaper Carol, reminds me of William Morris's designs. :)

Jane said...

Great wallpaper Carol! And a great post too, hadn’t come across all that background info before, slapped wrist for not looking more carefully at the Uniko shop and blog.

Aileen said...

Love your wallpaper card, makes me think of the wallpaper that was type of velvet on the blooms and sheen on the other bits but your card looks much nicer I think than my memory. I also love your older cards which haven't aged at all which goes to show how well the stamp has been designed. Beautiful

Verity Biddlecombe said...

Lovely cards, my favourite is the first one with the jaunty angle window!

Jeanne said...

Beautiful cards, Carol. I remember the "oldies" but greaties! And I also adore what you did with today's card. They look amazing as a background here. Such pretty colors and a wonderful sentiment. Thank you so much for sharing! Hugs!

Nandini said...

Carol, old and new are such gorgeous cards! I have always loved that set and yet I don't have it. Need to rectify that! xo

Karthikha said...

Super beautiful cards :)

Carol, I came here to see one card and what a pleasure to discover three gorgeous cards with the same stamps set. I also don't know what is Russian vintage wallpaper, but I do like these stamps :) - Sweet Kobylkin

These are all just gorgeous! I can see why you picked this set as a favorite to use. I think it's my fave as well. That bloom is just so big & bold.

Unique and three different cards. Wallpaper card is awesome!

Mary Holshouser said...

Your "oldies" are still goodies.
Love the colors. The different
ways they were situated is great.
The colors on the "new" version are
pretty. Stamping some of them
off the background is a good idea.
thanks for sharing

I love the way you have completely changed the personalities of the flowers by changing the colours you have used. Beautiful.
