Uniko Studio - May Release Day and Blog Hop

Morning Craftie Blog Buddies
It's time to reveal the May release stamps from

If you've been following me and the rest of my teamies
on the Design Team over the last few days the waiting is now over!
The sets are available to purchase from today and if you join
the blog hop and comment along the way you'll be in with a chance 
of winning both sets ... more details at the end of this post.

So here's my cards and first up I'm sharing my card
using the Flower Power 7 set and the sentiment is from 
All Occasion Sentiments #1

The inspiration for this card came from the current challenge

I couldn't resist the wall of flowers and split my panel to give the impression
of the patio window frame with (I imagine) more flowers on the outside.

Here's another card using the Nautical Treasures set.
As well as the sailing boat which I've used in the last few days
there are some cute little accent images too which I've focussed on here.

I also used an inlaid Anchor die from Paper Smooches and I'm 
hoping you can visualise the porthole I've made with some sizzix circle dies.
The sentiment is taken from the Uniko Studio: Simple Said Birthday set
and would you believe I found red, white and blue twine in my stash!
Traditional nautical colours.

Before I send you off on the hop here's the images of 
the stamp sets available to purchase at the Uniko shop from today


So it's blog hop time now and if you want to be in with a chance 
of winning the new release sets please comment along the way.
There's more details on the Uniko Studio blog where the hop starts.

Good luck and thanks for stopping by.



  1. What a cool idea to use the strip to represent the window panel and the flowers are such bright and cheerful colours. Great to see you at TO

  2. What beautiful cards Sarah. The flower power one has a really vintage feel and I love how the background stamps work fantastically with your anchor :-) x

  3. 2 great cards Sarah, love the bold and bright blooms on the first one.

  4. Lovely colourful cards and the second one is a brilliant masculine card idea.

  5. Great cards Sarah. I especially like the first one using the new Flower Power Set. I love the split panel. At first I though you were going to say it was the bed but now I see it is the window frame! Hmmm... might go with the bed idea and enter myself if there's still time! Thanks for the amazing inspiration from all the DT. Stef x

  6. Sarah - these are just fabulous. I love the bold, bright flowers on the first card and the layout is just great. However, it's the second that's my favourite. The nautical theme with those colours is just perfect. xx

  7. Beautiful interpretation of the inspiration photo and loving the BIG red anchor on the second & how you've used the little stamps to accent it - FAB showcase :) Hugs Bev x

  8. Lepi, barviti voščilnici.

  9. O, what a fabulous card with flowers! I like the colours. And the nautical one reminds me of summer. Just a little while and I will swim in the sea again. :-)

  10. Really loving the Flower Power stamp set and the bright colours you used.

  11. Two fabulous cards, Sarah. I love the bright pretty blooms on the first and the second has such a great design.

  12. Great cards! I love the fun colors of the Flower Power card!

  13. I adore those bright flowers!!! What a pretty card!

  14. Your bold bright flowers are pure delights! Happy-making in every way! Your second, with the anchor and nautical background images, is wonderfully inspired! I have an anchor die that I rarely use because I don't have any 'accessories'...I think you've remedied the situation with your showcase here! Fabulous!

  15. These are both fabulous, Sarah ... cool nautical look and such gorgeous, vibrant and pretty blooms! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

  16. I love those flowers so much, especially in all those beautiful colours. And it couldn't be more perfect for the TIME OUT challenge. Always so nice to have you join us!!

  17. Just fabulous Sarah ;) Viv xx

  18. Wow! Look at that nautical card, fantastic! Great use of the new stamp set!
