Uniko Studio July 2019 New Release~Introducing Large Background Tropical Paradise (Tuesday, July 23, 2019)

Hello,

Welcome to Day 2 of the Uniko Studio July 2019 New Release, where Large Backgrounds: Tropical Paradise has star billing on today's stage.  You may recognize this as part of Bev's digital stamp collection for Simply Cards & Papercrafts magazine HERE. I'm not great with digis, so I'm thrilled she decided to transform this into something 'ink-able' *grin*

Two cards using the same green inks (Memento Bamboo, New Sprout and Pear); the sentiments are from Paradise and the solid leaves on the first, from Paradise Leaves. 




I'll share a couple more cards using this background stamp on release day. Now...turning you over to see what the rest of my fabulous team - and our guest designer, Keren Baker - have created. You'll be dazzled!
Guest Designer: Keren Baker

Carol you are here

Hope you'll visit tomorrow for Day 2!

Uniko Studio July 2019 New Release~Introducing Background Builders Classics & Sentiments Outlined (Monday, July 22, 2019)

Hello,

Welcome to Day 1 of Uniko Studio July 2019 New Release, where we're introducing two 'must have' basics for your collection: Background Builders Classics & Sentiments Outlined

As you'll see throughout the hop, both new sets come with a variety of images that pair wonderfully together, as well as with other Uniko products.  

Today, my card features the new 'stripes' die, that I repeatedly stamped (thank heavens for my Misti!) to create a 'rainbow'-ish background, stamped one of the new sentiments, then transformed the whole kaboodle into a shaker. 


I'll share a couple more cards using this combination of stamps on release day. Now...turning you over to see what the rest of my fabulous team - and our guest designer, Keren Baker - have designed. You'll be dazzled!

Just Us Girls Challenge #495~Word Week...Smiles

Hello,

Waving from a wet-and-rainy Alberta...still! We haven't had a rain-free or totally sunny day since the beginning of June. My wee tomato plants are not happy!  Anyway...

Welcome to  Just Us Girls Challenge #495~Word Week, where our lovely Angie is inviting us to use smiles on - or create smiles with - our cards/projects! Smiles...delightfully contagious!


We're thrilled to welcome Emma Delfosse as our July guest designer once again. Please visit her, as well as my teammates - Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa and Maria - who would love to know you dropped by.

I'm currently obsessing over Pinkfresh Studio products (collection growing rather rapidly (need.to.get.control!), so I brought out three dies to make today's card, that was 110% inspired by and a  case of those designed by Laura Bassen (of course, hers are far prettier with her added touches): Geo Star 1 and 2, paired with a Smile die cut. Zero stamping!  


Since I had everything out, I made a second...


Over to you...

Looking forward to smiling at your SMILE creations in the gallery!
