Uniko Revisit Pure Florals: Cosmos

Hi there friends it's time to dust off and revisit a previously released
Uniko stamp set and this month Bev has chosen the 

Pure Florals: Cosmos set

Here's my card and I've teamed it with the recently released
Some Bunny set to make another Easter card.

Here's the image of the set and you'll see the flowers are
simply awesome and great for adding colour with all sorts of mediums

Just to show that you can use the images without colouring here's another 
card as I'm slightly addicted to removing watercolour pigment with clear water!

To add a little interest to the card base I've stamped the outline flower around
the edges. The 'inner' panel is coloured using distress inks then more outline images
added just at the base. I've added water to the petals of each of the blooms with a 
paint brush to remove the colour ever so slightly and added a sentiment from 
Paradise Humming Bird with a few sequins from my stash.

As usual there's more gorgeous creations by my fellow teamies over on the Uniko blog 
HERE plus details of the blog hop and how to win the set plus a £10 eGift Certificate.
 Good luck and have fun!



  1. Another couple of gorgeous cards Sarah. Wow...adore the bright colours on the first and the bunny is a real cutie. But the sophistication and elegance of the second card is so, so beautiful.

  2. Sarah these are beautiful !

    Love the bunny with the flowers !

  3. Wow very careful masking for your bunny card - impressive! I do like how you've used the single stamp to make a background for your second card. The black really helps the other colours pop. I may have to try the distress ink/water brush technique! X

  4. Two beautiful cards Sarah, I love the combined flowers with bunny, and the beautiful peachy card too, so pretty!

  5. Who's a clever bunny then...Brilliant Sarah..great use of the stamps and your imagination too!!Love that vibrant orange on the first one and your background on the second, both so different but both fantastic!!

  6. Very clever idea to combo this with the bunny!! Love how you outlined the second card with the flowers x

  7. Glad to see the bunny has 'hopped' on to your first card :) Fabulous masking and I adore the gorgeous colours on your second! Beautiful x

  8. I really think you can read my mind sometimes - LOL! I have had an idea of pairing the bunny with the flowers for some time now but hadn't got round to doing it and ta dah! You do it and even better than I could too :) I love the contrast of black and white with the beautifully coloured panel, wish I had the patience to do more interesting inked BG like you. FABULOUS showcase of this set. Hugs Bev x

  9. Made me smile to see how the bunny is using the flowers to preserve his modesty and the combo of colour and black outline flowers on the second is stunning!

  10. Two wonderful cards, and the second one has truly caught my eye. Love how you layered and selectively colored those flowers.

  11. Such fun - your first card with the bunny peeking out behind those flowers! But your second card is a real stunner!!!! Wish I could have thought of that...

  12. Gorgeous flowers and what a sweet bunny!

  13. Sarah!! Oh my how I love the second one .. you know me, and my black/white addiction! But both are so wonderful!

  14. Awesome cards! Love the cute bunny with the blooms... fabulous coloring! And the 2nd card with such gorgeous colors. Lovely!

  15. I think the little rabbit is so cute holding all those lovely flowers! And the get well card is so pretty - just the antidote you need when feeling poorly! Great work. xxx

  20. Your first card shows just how well the different sets combine together and makes a great Easter card.
