Uniko Studio - New Releases!

Hello All! Hope you are all ok! Welcome to the new release post for Uniko Studio stamps! There are four more stamp sets being released today. I've used two sets today, and will show you more next week!
There are so many new things to show you! The lovely papers that you can see here are a digital download from Uniko Studio, and they are released this morning! There are such lovely papers in this collection that I didn't know which ones to choose!The cardstock that I have used to mat the papers are Stampin Up!

The stamps that you can see on the left are a wonderful lattice background set. I have coloured the apertures using Copic markers to match the colours in the papers. The frame edges have been coloured with a Copic Spica clear pen, which unfotunately you can't see very well on this photo.These work so well as a background pattern, or as a feature pattern. The gorgeous sentiments on the right are part of a wonderful mix and match set called 'Fontiments' - love that name! You can make so many different combinations of styles of font with this set - I took ages choosing which ones to pop together!
I have been quite light with embellishments for me - a few pearls coloured with Copics, ribbon strips and a sparkly buckle!
Thanks so much for visiting - please visit Uniko Studio and my DT colleague Aimes for more information on this release!

A Day to Celebrate!

Good Morning! Thanks for coming to visit! Well, today is a day for celebration - it is the 2nd birthday of my nearest joy emporium - The Paperlane! The shop has been open for two years, and I have spent quite a bit of time in there, believe me!!
So, to celebrate the store's birthday, there is a challenge going on! This challenge will run to the 10th May, and the prize is brilliant - a whole £15 gift voucher to spend!! Kicking myself I can't enter! So if you are thinking of joining in, there are three options - join in on the blog post, email your entry if you don't have a blog or drop it into the store if you live close by!

Here is my entry - I have used two sentiments to celebrate the second birthday! The stamp is a new Wild Rose Studio stamp - Bella and Balloons is so cute! I loved using the old Copics on her! She is sweet!

Oh, by the way - I haven't gone all artsy with staging the photos - the cakes were there for my afternoon tea in the garden! Thought I would make the best of the sunshine! Here is a close up of the lovely image.
The sentiments are Hero Arts, and the balloons have been embellished using Glossy Accents and Stickles for a bit of sparkle! There are lots of dots of Viva Pearl Pen all over the card - cannot help using them!
