Sneak Peeks

Excited for Septembers Craft Stamper Magazine!

Hey!

I am super duper excited to share some sneaky peeks of some projects the Design Team and I have in a Uniko feature in the September issue of Craft Stamper magazine – whoop!

CS_208 SEP17{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I was beyond thrilled when Trish Latimer the Editor of Craft Stamper emailed me to see if Uniko along with the Design Team would be interested in making some projects for a feature in the magazine. As you can see, I did and my Design Team have been amazing and created SO many mixed media projects using Uniko products, that they couldn’t fit them all in the magazine feature! Fear not the extra ones will be on their blog ūüėČ

Subscribers to the magazine will have probably received their copy through the mail by now, but those who want to grab a copy they will go on sale on Friday 4th August. I’ve attached some info as to how to purchase a copy online or get a subscription¬†at the end of the post.

Anyway, how about a few sneaky peek photos at a few of the projects featured…

These first two photos are of projects I created. I had a little bit of a theme going and I was also inspired by the current trend of pairing florals with geometrics. Can you spot my signature colour combo too?!

This beautiful blue and turquoise card is by Jane, again bang on trend with pairing geometrics, this time with the butterfly from English Country Garden Butterflies.

This project peek is one of Lindsey’s. Just look at the layering of stamped images and pretty colours. Can you name some of the sets Lindsey has used on the background?! If you can, tell me in the comments and I’ll pick a winner to receive one of the sets featured ūüėČ

Next is another pretty English Country Garden Butterfly project, this time by Rahmat…

Another beautiful pairing of the butterfly, this time with Pure Florals: Lily. Such pretty shades of pink, beautiful ink splatters and shiny sequins :)

There is a bit of a trend appearing, with another project featuring English Country Garden Butterflies. A firm favourite among the DT ūüėČ This is one of the projects by Sarah G. I love how Sarah has used the sentiment from the set in the background and the blues, turquoise and greens. Such fresh and happy colours.

Lastly, but by no means least is this fabulous sneak peek by Sarah P…

Sarah Platt

Another firm favourite of the myself and the DT is Originally Organic. It also seems pretty popular in store as again it is sold out! I will be getting a restock of this set along with others in the next couple of weeks ūüėČ

I hope you have enjoyed this sneaky peek post and are now itching to get your hands on the magazine?! You definitely want to get a copy either physical or digital as there is a giveaway of some kind in the magazine, where you can win some Uniko clear stamps!

Here’s some of the places you can get the magazine from August 4th…www.craftstamper.com to buy subscriptions, www.mags-uk.com for single print copies, digital copies from www.pocketmags.co.uk¬†Overseas subscriptions are available too!

That’s all from me today, thanks for stopping by :)

WhooHoo!

Not only is today Hubby’s birthday and a Bank Holiday here in the UK, it is also the day I get to show you a couple of the ‘official’ sneak peeks for the May 2017 Release.

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this release, I know many of you have been waiting for it! I decided to time it to coincide with Happy Stampers Festival, which is on Saturday – YAY!

With the popularity of the Background Blocks Halftone clear stamp released in February, I have another two joining the series! These are todays peeks…

Both of these are SO fun and I can’t wait to show you some of the possibilities they hold. Be sure to pop back on Wednesday 3rd May, when myself and the DT get to introduce you to these two stamps :)

February 2017 & 5th Birthday Sneak Peeks Day 2

WhooHoo!

The Uniko 5th Birthday Celebrations are now in FULL swing. Yesterday I shared the first 2 sneak peeks of the FIVE clear stamps being released this month and today I get to show you the last of the ‘official’ sneak peeks.

Ok, lets get to these peeks…

This first peek is BANG on trend! It is another new ‘style’ stamp being added to the Uniko Clear Stamp line up called Background Blocks. This has SO many possibilities and can be paired with SO many clear stamps from florals to masculine images. Which leads me nicely onto the next peek…

Now, if you are a long time fan and follower of Uniko, you might just recognise the font and design in this peek ūüėČ This set again is BANG on trend and pairs perfectly with the previously released Explosion! clear stamp set.

Lastly but by no means least I have listened to your requests and suggestions for this clear stamp set…

Again, if you have been following me and Uniko for some time, you will know my LOVE of Scandinavian design and before our 4th Birthday celebrations I shared a post¬†HERE¬†called Uniko…way back to the beginning! Anyway, this little mini set is inspired by my all time favourite design and I can’t wait to show you the possibilities of this set!

Ok, so that is all the peeks and tomorrow the FUN begins as the Design Team and I start the product introductions.

Release Schedule…
Sneak Peeks 18th Р19th Sept, these little teasers give you hints at what is in store!

Introducing 20th Р24th Sept, here you will see a closer look at the clear stamp sets being released with a daily blog hop with the Uniko DT.

February 2017 & 5th Birthday Sneak Peeks Day 1

WhooHoo!

The Uniko 5th Birthday Celebrations are now in FULL swing, as today I get to show you a couple of the ‘official’ sneak peeks for the February 2017 Release.

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this release. I treasure your patronage and support for Uniko, whether you’ve been here since the beginning or just a few days :)

Ok, lets get to these peeks…

First up we have a peek at a tiny section of a new ‘style’ of stamp, part of a collection that I am introducing to the line up of Uniko clear stamps called Block Party. I can’t wait to show you the possibilities of this stamp on Monday 20th Feb ūüėČ

Now, if you LOVE Originally Organic clear stamp set AND the FREE Digital Stamp Set featured in Simply Cards & Papercrafts back in September 2016 (available for download HERE), then I think you might just LOVE this additional clear stamp set!

 The possibilities of this set on its own are fabulous, but pair it with Originally Organic and you will be set for endless possibilities!

You will get to see more of this set in use by the DT and myself in the coming days, so stay tuned! I will be back tomorrow with more Sneak Peeks to share with you, hope to see you then :)

Have You Joined In Yet?

Hey!

The Design Team and I are back to remind you that there is still plenty of time to join in on the September Uniko challenge HERE. We have another fun challenge this month to spark your creativity…

This month we have a theme challenge. With signs of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere we are looking for Autumn inspired creations. We have an optional twist of a THANKS card too.

You can use any products/stamps to enter the challenge, but we do LOVE to see you use your Uniko products.

Email entries welcome, just email a photo of your card to bev@uniko.co.uk and I will add it to the Uniko Flickr gallery and link up!
This is what I came up with…

 

So, the Uniko Sept/Oct Release is just round the corner and I have been busy in between packaging stamps for lovely orders & the Happy Stampers Festival, making cards to showcase the new release. Well, as you might see I couldn’t resist using one of the new stamps to accentuate the large ‘thanks’ sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #6.

USC#36a

I stamped both the sentiment and leaves in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, so that I could use a selection of Autumn colours to colour them in and have the outlines to blend in. ¬†I tried a ombre effect to the ‘thanks’ from light to dark brown and the leaves are just randomly coloured. To finish the card off I added a coating of Wink Of Stella and a couple of SU! Candy Dots.

Now, if you need more incentive to play along with the challenge here are the details of the prizes.

THE PRIZES
  • The DT will choose a winner who will get a ¬£20 gift voucher and opportunity to Guest Design.
  • We will do a random draw for all those who twist with us. This winner will get to choose a stamp set of choice from the store.
  • The DT choose a Top 3 who will each get 100 Loyalty Rewards Points added to their Uniko customer account.
  • We will do a random draw for all those who use A UNIKO stamp. This winner will get 200 Loyalty Reward Points added to their Uniko customer account.

You’ve got plenty of time to play along with this month’s challenge. The deadline for submission is midnight (BST) on Friday 14th October (7.00pm EDT).

Be sure to head on over HERE for more inspiration from the Design Team and for the link up!

February Sneak Peeks Day 2

YAY! I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, I am so pleased that you are liking the look of the release so far :)

Today we are continuing the countdown to our 4th Birthday, with a couple more sneak peeks of products being released on the 11th February. The first couple were HERE yesterday, in case you missed them!

First up we have a sneak peek at a new sentiment set…

This mini set is jam-packed full of sentiments for all sorts of occasions. They also pair lovely with so many other Uniko sentiment and image sets for even more possibilities. It’s certainly proving to be a ‘go to’ set for me!

Lastly but by no means least I got my ‘cute’ on when designing for this next set…

This set has a mixture of interchangeable sentiments in two fun an trendy fonts along with the cute bunny ūüėČ As you can see it would be perfect for Easter, but how about new baby, children’s cards or even Valentine’s???

Ok, that’s all the sneak peeks for this release, I will be back again tomorrow with the Uniko DT and a Uniko Alumni to introduce you to the first product – YAY! I do hope I will see you tomorrow?!

Below I have outlined the release schedule and as it is a celebration, it would be rude not to have prizes!

February Release Sneak Peeks Day 1

The countdown to Uniko’s 4th Birthday has begun, I can hardly believe that this little company has made it this far!

It is all down to YOU awesome customers who make my heart happy when you purchase my products and the FABulous Uniko Design Team past & present who have promoted Uniko products. All this combined continues to make my dream of designing stamps, dies and running this business possible.
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your custom and loyalty over these past 4 years, I truly appreciate each and everyone of you.
Now, how about some MORE sneaky peeks of what’s in store for this release. You may have seen a few around social media the past few days already, but here are the ‘official’ sneak peeks…

This is a peek of a multi step stamping floral set which is a follow on from a very popular series of ‘bloom’ stamps ūüėČ It contains an array of building opportunities and will sure to be a go to floral set and will pair with SO many other Uniko products.

Next up, is another set in the mini series of beverage themed sets…

This time round it is for all you tea lovers out there! I have kept the style the same as the previously released I LOVE Coffee, for more mix and match possibilities. It even coordinates with the set above, as the bloom was too nice not to appear again ūüėČ

That’s all the sneak peeks for today, I will be back again tomorrow with a couple more. I do hope I will see you tomorrow?!

Below I have outlined the release schedule and as it is a celebration, it would be rude not to have prizes!
