Whoopie! Release Day is here at last.
Thanks for stopping by again. 

Today the August release is available to purchase here
and I've a few extra cards I made (below) using these terrific sets 



First up and I don't know if this isn't a bit OTT but I tried to use something
from each set on one card. Hmmm can you guess what comes from what set?
Plus there's a sneaky image from an earlier set of Uniko stamps!

I'm going to post this at the Simon Says Stamp challenge for this week
where the theme is 'Make it Sparkle'
As I've used some sparkling silver embossing powder and sparkly gems
from my stash I'm hoping it'll fit perfectly.

Next up I needed another birthday card for a young boy so thought this was
the perfect excuse to ink up the Big and Bold Wish set again.

I've stamped the images onto vellum with Versamark Ink then heat embossed with silver.
The candles are coloured on the reverse with Promarkers
and to finish a couple of gems and Doodlebug sequins.

Last but not least I couldn't resist another Sweet Baby one.
My sister is having her second baby in December so I'm hanging onto this one for her.

This one was quite tricky but I'm thrilled with the result.
I've used stamps from both the Strike A Pose and Sweet Baby sets
to create my Duck's bath-time card!

It's a shaker card, which I don't make often (why don't the sequins sit where you 
want them to whilst photographing, no matter how much 'shaking' I did)
The frame is backed with glitter card and I've punched some little hearts to
add to the sequins. 

To finish a strip of DP from Echo Park, Doodlebug Sprinkles, hemp cord 
and 2 little mini tags with embossed sentiments from the set.
