Hi everyone! How are you on this fine Tuesday? 🙂
I can’t believe it’s time for the final introductory post for the Uniko Studio April Release already – time really does fly when you’re having fun!
Today I’m helping to introduce the final new stamp set for this release. Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum features an amazingly detailed number of chrysanthemum flowers that are simply stunning!!
As soon as I saw this set I had it in mind to paper piece one of those gorgeous flowers:
Let me just tell you: all that fussy cutting was a pain. But so worth it though, thankfully!
I started by stamping the large outline chrysanthemum onto Studio Calico patterned paper and fussy cutting out – twice! I selectively cut the second image to get some dimension with those petals and curved them up with my fingers. I adhered the two images together using Pinflair Glue Gel. I hope you can see the dimension!
I then set to work on my Stamper’s Select White card base, adhering some patterned papers from the same collection, and adding a strip of Scor-Tape between them. I coated this with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder and heat set – love how this turned out! I finished up by adhering the flower in place, along with some sequins, and adding my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
So I do hope you will join me again tomorrow for the super-exciting Release Day Blog Hop! All the products for this month will be released – and the Design Team has created some amazing things with them!! So exciting!!! I can’t wait to show you my final projects!! In the meantime I really recommend checking out the Uniko blog where Bev is officially introducing the release every day – and also to the designers who are also showcasing this set today!
