Uniko February Release - Intro Background Blocks Pinstripe and Yes, You Release Freebie

This is the last day of the release sneak peeks and I'm so glad I could be here as GD to share them all with you. I've had a great time!

Today I'm sharing this rather quirky stamp set called Background Blocks Pinstripe. As soon as I saw this set, I immediately thought of tartan - can't get away from the fact I'm Scottish! - and with my stamping tool I set to work to create a criss cross background by turning my card base and moving it up and down.


I used a lot of different colours of my little Memento Dew Drop inks. I have a small collection and used most of the brightest colours for as rainbow an effect as possible. As you'd expect, it ended up fairly dark in the centre with the colours showing at the edges, but I love the way it turned out.




I used the Yes, You set (this is added to release day orders of £25 or more up to Sunday 17th Feb 9pm GMT or while stocks last. After that you can buy for £5) to stamp out several of the words in bold colours which I attached randomly with foam tape. The little Yes, You in the corner then links to the inside of the card where I've stamped you are loved. A great way to remind people that we are there for them!


Thank you so much for joining me for all the sneak peeks. I will be back tomorrow for the blog hop at 9am - definitely worth joining in for a fabulous prize! Happy Crafting Everyone!

This card is definitely amazing, fabulous and wonderful, Ruth ! I love your tartan so much. I'm not Scottish but I love Scotland, and I also immediately thought of a tartan, but to be honest mine was far from being as beautiful as yours ! I will give it another try. Thanks so much for this gorgeous inspiration. x

This is lovely Ruth, unique, pretty and a lot of fun! This stamp set would be great for masculine cards too, very versatile. I like the way you stamped the greeting so that it continues into the inside. I also like the fact the stripes on the stamp are thin, thicker ones are always harder to get a clean stamp, but the thin lines seem to work much better :) xx
