Uniko - Introducing Explosion! Additions

Hello there friends, it's time for some more Introductions over at 


and today we have the next set in our 5th birthday release, called
 Explosion! Additions set. If you've been a customer and follower of Uniko 
for much of the last 5 years you'll see this set is a perfect accompaniment to the
previously released Explosion set and great for those kids and guys!

For this one I've heat-embossed the bold sentiment and some of the images
from both the original Explosion set and this new one in WOW Metallic Silver
sparkle EP over the top of some of the new images stamped directly on the
card panel in a subtle grey shade. The sentiment is fuzzy cut and popped up on
3d foam and I've added some additional starts from the Balloon Bash set!

This time I created a cartoon style collage of bold sentiments and images to
create a BG for my front panel. The stars were die-cut from a heat-embossed
 panel of the half-tone BG stamp we introduced yesterday.

So we've just got one more day of intros before the BIG 5th birthday release and 
you'll find schedule and all other details over on the Uniko blog HERE as well
as links and peeks at how my fellow teamies have worked their magic!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll pop back again tomorrow!



  1. Two "explosive" cards Sarah ! Definitely these stamp sets are great for kids and men cards ! Love how you made your card combining the half-tone BG stamp for the stars and the BANG big sentiment for the background ! Fabulous ! Thanks for sharing.

  2. WOW! Both your cards have that factor. Loving the embossing, adds even more dimension to the words and halftone patterns. LOVE the CASness of your first card and the all over stamped BG of your second. An awesome showcase of this set and the sets combined. Thank you & hugs Bev x

  3. This set works really well with the metallic embossing and more neutral colours too - I never thought of this pairing! Fab xx

  4. Oh my! These are stunning. Love the simplicity of the first one with the lovely soft blue and silver. And the background you've created on the second card with all those lovely words is fab. Great work. xxx

  5. So impressed by your choice of more subtle colours for this set Sarah. They look so good and have opened up a whole new way to use them that I'd not even considered.

  6. two brilliant cards and I like how you have used the large words as a background to set off your dotty stars. Bet they both shine in the metallics!

  7. I absolutely love these, Sarah! The embossed sentiment on the black on the first card looks amazing and I love the background sentiments on your star card.....I will be using both of those ideas :)

  8. The Explosions image is such fun, and seeing it 'jazzed up' has me wildly excited! My nephew would LOVE to receive cards with big WOWs POWs and BAMs on them! He does fancy himself a super hero at times *grin* I'm smitten with both your cards, Sarah! The first is most definitely WOW and the second, cartoon-style, BAM! Both of these sure pack a POW of an impact!

  9. These are those super hero images.
