Fall2017CLBH1

The weather here in the UK is certainly getting cooler and signs of Autumn (Fall) are appearing with leaves on the floor. I’m not a tea or coffee drinker, but I do like a hot chocolate (cocoa) and sometimes you just need to drink a hot beverage out of a fancy tea cup!

As you can see I was inspired to use the I LOVE Tea clear stamp set, combined with a sentiment and coffee bean trio from I LOVE Coffee and a leaf from Natures Treasures. I was also inspired by this weeks sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!HERE and seen below…

I’ve made 3 cards to share with you today using the new release.
UnikoSept17Release2
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
First up is this festive card using Background Blocks: Scattered Polka Dots. When I was designing this stamp it reminded me of a snow flurry. So I was inspired to pair it with Stunning Snowflakes, one of my favourite colours and my favourite snowflake trio!
UnikoSept17Release2a
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
I heat embossed the scattered polka dot background with VersaMark and Cosmic Shimmer Detail White EP. I masked off a section before doing so, to create a space for my sentiment. The snow flakes are stamped in Altenew ink and fussy cut out. I added a tin bit of bling to each snowflake to finish them off.
UnikoSept17Release1
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
Next I was inspired by the current challenge over at Seize the Birthday HERE. Their current challenge is a seize the toppings challenge…
 
    Our “Toppings” option this time is…
“Ocean Colors”
(Blue, Green and or Aqua)
Neutrals are always welcome too!

I pulled out Background Builders: Seeing Stars and a trio of Altenew inks to match the ‘Ocean Colours’ theme. I decided to make a masculine card too, so added some neutral grey’s to the combo.

UnikoSept17Release1a
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
It was almost a one layer card, but I went back and trimmed a small slither off the bottom of the panel to add some neutral grey strips of card. This helped to tie in the grey of the stamped sentiment and small stars.
Lastly, I decided to ink up Reach For The Stars…
UnikoSept17Release3
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
My Design Team have inspired me so much this week with their colourful rainbow cards using this set, I decided I should join in! Super CAS and simple. An ink blended die cut square and some sparkly embossing on the base layer!

Introducing… Background Blocks Stars and Background Builders: Seeing Stars

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the September product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 5 clear stamp sets being released and NOW it is time for the Design Team and I to introduce them to you.

Yesterday we introduced Reach For The Stars and today, myself and my AWESOME Design Team are introducing TWO more clear stamp sets, Background Blocks Stars and Background Builders Seeing Stars. These two sets have so many fun possibilities and can be used and paired with all sorts of stamps and paper crafting goodies, including yesterdays clear stamp set!

Hopefully you have arrived from the Uniko Blogspot Blog HERE, where I shared two cards using the new clear stamp sets. I’ve two more cards to share with you, both with a slightly softer tone. First up is another card using Background Blocks Stars…

IntroBBlocksStars2a

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

This time I opted for a grey ombré look and I paired the background with some Simply Said Blocks sentiments stamped in pastel shades of Altenew ink.

IntroBBlocksStars2

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

The sentiments are mounted with foam adhesive and I went in and added some silver enamel stars too, for that extra interest and bling.

Lastly I have one more Background Builders: Seeing Stars card to share…

IntroBBSeeingStars2

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

This card was inspired by this weeks Freshly Made Sketches sketch seen HERE and below, the stripe across the sketch was calling for some ombré stars and the circle element of the sketch a layered star!

FMS Final 304-001

I used my MISTI tool to stamp the solid ombré stars stripes, going from light to dark, as this saves having to clean your stamp between each colour 😉 The die cut star is a Sizzix Framelits star die and I have stamped and off centred one of the larger single stars from the clear stamp set. The sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks and I again finished the design off with some Stampin’ Up! enamel stars!

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the September product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 5 clear stamp sets being released and NOW it is time for the Design Team and I to introduce them to you.

Today, myself and my AWESOME Design Team are introducing a STELLA clear stamp set, Reach For The Stars. This stamp set is bang on trend and has so many fun possibilities.
Hopefully you should have arrived here from the Uniko Blogspot Blog HERE, if not be sure to start there and see my first introduction card 😉
IntroReachfortheStars2
{Click Photo For a Closer Look}
Yesterday was our 4th Wedding Anniversary and this clear stamp set seemed the perfect choice to make him a card. I decided upon a shaker card as it was a special occasion!
For this card I decided to dust off my watercolour paints and painted a night sky. I added the sparkly galaxy stamp, which was stamped in Encore silver and heat embossed with Stardust EP (quite hard to see in the photo). I added some star enamels and a few sequins too.
IntroReachfortheStars2a
{Click Photo For a Closer Look}
The ‘I Thank My Lucky’ part of the sentiment is stamped onto a snippet of the watercolour background and the ‘Stars’ is again stamped in Encore Silver and heat embossed with Stardust EP.

Introducing… Background Blocks Scattered Polka Dots and Simply Said Blocks

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the September product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 5 clear stamp sets being released and NOW it is time for the Design Team and I to introduce them to you.

Today, myself and my AWESOME Design Team are introducing TWO clear stamp sets, Background Blocks Scattered Polka Dots and Simply Said Blocks. These two sets have so many fun possibilities and can be used and paired with all sorts of stamps and paper crafting goodies.
Hopefully you should have arrived here from the Uniko Blogspot Blog HERE, if not be sure to start there and see my first couple of introduction cards 😉
First up a card using Simply Said Blocks, paired with Uniko Style. Again I have another rainbow card, perfect for the current challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges HERE. Uniko is the sponsor for the challenge AND I am your CASE muse too 😉
IntroSSBlocks2
{Click Photo For a Closer Look}
I used the ‘blank’ block and my MISTI tool to stamp the striped BG using my 3 favourite colours and two shades from my Altenew ink collection.
IntroSSBlocks2a
{Click Photo For a Closer Look}
The ‘Thanks’ sentiment also from the set is stamped in black, fussy cut out and mounted onto the card using foam adhesive. I added a few of my favourite SU! Enamel Dots too 😉
Next I had to have another go at the multicoloured polka dot background, but this time I used a softer colour palette and paired the background with Celebrate With Cake.
IntroBBScatteredPD3
{Click Photo For a Closer Look}
Again I used my MISTI tool and a Stampin’ Up! In Colour collection of markers to individually and randomly colour the dots. It’s a little time consuming (though therapeutic if you like colouring), but totally worth the result! After colouring the dots and before stamping, be sure to ‘huff’ over the stamp to moisten the ink.
IntroBBScatteredPD3a

Hopefully you can see the dimension of the die cut polka dot background and cupcake, along with the sparkly frosting – yum!

a BIG Thank You & Farewell…

Hey!

It’s another of those posts that I find hard to write and put all my feelings into. It is with sadness that  we at Uniko are saying farewell to another of our FABulous Design Team members Sarah Gray from Funky Fossil Designs.

Sarah has been a member of the Uniko DT since March 2015. For over 2 years I have had the honour and pleasure of having Sarah as part of the Uniko family. It seems longer than 2 years as before Sarah was a member of the DT, she was a regular customer too! Seeing the inspiration and creativity flow when Sarah works her magic with Uniko products is simply amazing.
A BIG thank you will never be enough to resonate my gratitude for all that Sarah has done for me and Uniko, she has truly been an inspiration to me and I am sure to all the Uniko customers old and new alike.

Over HERE is the start of the farewell hop & I have also shared a small selection of my favourite cards Sarah has made  whilst being on the DT. This was SO hard as I love each and every one that Sarah has made!!

So, we couldn’t let Sarah leave without giving her a little farewell send off, so the Design Team & I each made a card to share. This is what I have created…

FarewellSarahG

{Click Photo For a Closer Look}

I opted for one of the Pure Florals: Gerbera flowers, as Sarah’s use of this clear stamp set WOWs me every time and decided to go ‘Rainbow’ style too and give my new Faber-Castell Polychromos another use!

FarewellSarahGa

{Click Photo For a Closer Look}

I’ve kept the design of my card pretty simple, using just the Background Blocks: Horizontal Stripe (vertically). I stamped it in Altenew Limestone ink, to let the colourful Gerbera take centre stage. I was wanting to add the ‘perfect’ thanks sentiment, but I really need to design the ‘perfect’ thank you set 😉 Instead I opted for a sentiment from Originally Organic Additions. I chose this particular sentiment as Sarah is a blessing and a wonderful friend.

I’m going to enter this in to the challenge over at AAA Cards too, as their current challenge HERE is rainbow.

#95

 That’s all I have to share creatively today, but be sure to follow the links below to see what the Design Team created.

CASology 5-Year Anniversary Celebration & Blog Hop!

Hey!

Today CASology is celebrating their 5 year Anniversary with a super FUN Blog Hop & Challenge, with PRIZES too! Uniko is super proud to be sponsoring the blog hop, along with many other fabulous companies & creative individuals.

The theme of the Blog Hop and Challenge this week is Balloon…

Week 259 - Balloon

How about some inspiration using the cue word…
CASology5thAnn
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
Appropriately I reached for Uniko Balloon Bash clear stamp set and I always like to pair the balloons with some kind of background. For this card I decided upon Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe and a sentiment from Happy Succulents.
Having browsed a trend magazine last week, the ombré trend is sticking around a little longer and is such a fun technique/colour way for this striped background. Altenew cube inks are perfect in achieving an ombré colour effect too. I’ve had the blue collection for a while but it’s not one I reach for often, so decided to use them for this card.
CASology5thAnn1
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
I used my MISTI tool for placement & stamping of the background, so I was able to achieve good solid lines by repeatedly inking and stamping. I then stamped the ‘happy’ sentiment and partial balloon string, so that my balloon would be anchored.
The balloon is stamped & fussy cut out, with a rather good covering of Clear Wink Of Stella. I opened a new pen and it kinda flowed out a little quick & too much! Oh well, you can never have too much sparkle! I added a few SU! Glitter Enamel Dots to finish the design off.
That’s all I have to share with you today and your next stop on the hop is Hannelie Bester from Desert Diva, who is sure to WOW you with her card!

July 2017 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey!

It’s time for another Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

I know theoretically July should be a release month, but earlier in the year I mentioned that I was aiming to take some of the stress of releases away a little, I have delayed it until August, it’ll be a good one – promise!  Anyway, the Design Team and I are here today to revisit and give some fresh inky love to a previously released clear stamp set.

This month I decided to dust off and revisit the previously released Marvellous Mehndi

As usual I have picked a couple of my ‘old’ favourites using this set and I am sharing them over HERE at the start of the hop. I’ve had so much fun creating cards using this set, it really does have a wealth of possibilities. Here’s how I used it today…

UnikoJuly2017revisit

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I’ve had these Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolours for AGES and I think I’ve only used them once since I got them nearly year ago *hangs head in shame*.  Anyway, I had the idea of using them with the large mandala from the set for a couple of weeks now and I really wanted to try them out on some black card stock too. So that’s how this card came about!

UnikoJuly2017revisit2

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I stamped the mandala in VersaMark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I then used all of the colours from the Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolours collection to colour them in. This was seriously therapeutic and I just LOVE the sparkle! I added a die cut congrats sentiment from Stampin’ Up! and some gold nail heads to finish the card off.

UnikoJuly2017revisit1

I have a little sneaky peek of another card I will be sharing HERE (at 1pm GMT) for this weeks CAS Colour & Sketches DT post. I had so much fun I couldn’t resist using almost all the same supplies!

Summer17CLBH2

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

When I think of Summer at the moment I instantly think of Tropical beaches, florals and colours. Hence my pairing of I LOVE Tea with Paradise.

I was inspired by the current challenge over at AAA cardsHERE, which is to use the emboss resist technique. I used the outline Hibiscus flower and solid leaves from Paradise clear stamp set, stamping them in VersaMark ink and heat embossing in clear EP. I then applied my favourite distress inks.

#92

The tea cup was stamped with the solid Hibiscus flower and leaves before I fussy cut it out. The sentiment is also from I LOVE Tea and I added some Stampin’ Up! Glitter Enamel Dots to finish the design off :)

Summer17CLBH2a

June 2017 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Happy Weekend!

It’s time for another Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY! As June isn’t a release month, the Design Team and I are here today to revisit and give some fresh inky love to a previously released clear stamp set.

This month I decided to dust off and revisit the previously released Originally Organic clear stamp set and also take the opportunity to get a closer look at the matching dies too!

This clear stamp set was released last year HERE and was and still is hugely popular. Now with the matching dies, it has even more possibilities.

As usual I have picked a couple of my ‘old’ favourites using this set and I am sharing them over HERE at the start of the hop as I have LOTS of  fresh inspiration for you…

  OrganicRevisit2     {Click Photo For A Closer Look}

My first two cards use my favourite image from the set and were created at the same time and have an a Ying & Yang feel to them.

OrganicRevisit2a

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

This first card was created by using the matching die to create a stencil and apply the rainbow of distress ink through it, creating a one layer card. The coordinating image and sentiment were placed and stamped using the MISTI. A few of my favourite enamel dots were added to finish the card off.

OrganicRevisit1

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

My second card was created as a result of a boo boo on my first one layer card. I dropped one of my inked stamps onto it and so instead of wasting the image I die cut it out. This time I thought it would be fun to add the rainbow image to a black card base with a white heat embossed sentiment. As my black card off cut was slightly thinner width wise of my usual card bases, I layered it onto a white base to add simple contrast and detail down the left hand side. Again I added my favourite enamel dots were added to finish.

OrganicRevisit1a

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

Next I wanted to use the die to match a couple of the smaller stamps in the set…

OrganicRevisit3

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

This card has an almost Lily Pad feel to it as if you were looking at the edge of a pond with the reeds peeking from behind the die cut curve.

OrganicRevisit3a

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

This nicely lead onto my next card, which again uses some of the smaller stamps contained in the set. This time I was inspired by and combined a couple of challenges…

OrganicRevisit4

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

First up the layout of my card is from the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge HERE and seen below and my colour choice from the current Color Throwdown HERE and seen below.

CTS_225

swatch446

I kept things really simple and minimal embellishment due to using an all over pattern. The stitched frame die is from Stampin’ Up!

OrganicRevisit4a

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

Lastly I couldn’t end the post without using the other large and main image from the set and the matching dies to go with it!

OrganicRevisit5

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

Again I kept the design simple, letting the floral design and sentiment take the stage. What I especially like about this card is the layers of dimension. The stem and leaves die cut is adhered to the white mat layer using thin foam adhesive and then the flowers are adhered using the normal thicker foam adhesive. I then achieved more depth by stamping the floral stamens onto the white mat layer.

OrganicRevisit5a

{Click Photo For A Closer Look}

I added some subtle sparkle to the leaves with Clear Wink Of Stella, a trio of pearls and some tiny dots of Nuvo Glitter Drops to the stamens.

I hope I have inspired you with my projects today, but now it’s time to hand you over to the Uniko Design Team….
