Uniko February Release - Beautiful Blooms III

Hello!

Spring is just around the corner (honest) and what better way to welcome it than with a beautiful layered floral stamp set from Uniko?  This is the first of the sets that we are going to be sharing with you over the next few days leading up to the release going live on 11 February!

I do love florals but don't use them very often as I always think that other people's cards look so much better :)  However, I love the way that this easy layering set can give you real depth and the flowers are an easy enough shape to cut out masks for as I have done with this first card:



I used the fab Altenew inks on this card as the tones work perfectly together for layered florals.  I masked the flowers to create the cluster in the corner and the sentiment is from a REALLY useful set, Uniko's Simply Said range of sentiments which are part of this release.

I will also link my card up to Time Out's current challenge where the word inspiration is:  Love is the Flower you've got to let Grow.  Obviously I have used flowers on my design and as a mother's love is one of the main ways that we all grow, the sentiment seems to fit well too.

I did more masking on this card:


I combined the lovely layered flowers with leaf stamps from a previous Uniko release - Natures Treasures II.  The Celebrate sentiment is from All Occasion Sentiments #6.  A strip of black patterned paper helps the florals to pop.

Here is the Beautiful Blooms III set:

 
 
Head over to the Uniko blog to check out what the lovely DT have made.  There are also prizes and giveaways to celebrate the February release and Uniko's 4th birthday!  I will be back tomorrow with another set to introduce :)
