Uniko Sponsors Passion For ProMarkers!

Hello again!

I did say it was a busy day here at Uniko HQ and I am back again to let you know that Uniko is super happy to be sponsoring another challenge in blog land… Passion For ProMarkers!

This week HERE at Passion For ProMarkers they want to see ’embossing’ on your project. It can be any type of project and any technique of embossing, as long as you use some kind of Windsor & Newton (formally Letraset) product to colour the project.

So I challenged myself to play along and as I don’t have many ProMarkers, just the Neon collection, I opted for a ‘Happy’ card…

It feels like and age since I used Decorative Doilies The Hands Of Time and the thought of colouring one of my favourite doilies neon made me happy. I started out by stamping the doily in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and quickly adding Stampin’ Up! black EP. This helped me to keep the colour inside the lines!

The ‘Happy’ sentiment is also heat embossed, fussy cut out and adhered using foam adhesive. You are getting another peek at a October 2017 Release clear stamp set 😉

I hope you’re inspired to join in on the challenge & I look forward to seeing you in the gallery. That is all I have to share today, but I will be back with the Uniko DT tomorrow with our first October 2017 product introduction.

Until then, thanks for stopping by!

Uniko Sponsors CASology!

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

I do hope you are having a good week so far? It is a busy one here at Uniko HQ as we are in full swing with the October 2017 Release. We have had all the clear stamp set sneak peeks and I have been sharing some other product peeks over on Instagram and Facebook! There is also a peek at a new die collection in this post 😉

Anyway, along with all the festivities, Uniko is super duper happy to be sponsoring one of my favourite challenges this week, CASology.

This week the cue word over at CASology HERE is ‘ODD’…

Week 270 - Odd

I found this a little hard a first, but I then got to thinking of odd numbers and this card came about…

I chose an ‘odd’ number of flowers and my favourite number! I dusted of Flower Power #1 clear stamps and paired them with the NEW matching Flower Power Designer Dies. Yep, another NEW set of coordinating dies :)

The layout of my card is loosely based on this weeks CAS Colours & Sketches sketch seen HERE and below. I’ve my Design Team card over HERE too, if you want some more inspiration today!

To make my card a little more ‘odd’ I decided to use both positive and negative die cutting for the flower trio…

Until then, thanks for stopping by!

NBUS Challenge #12 and a BIG peek at something NEW!

Hey!

I can’t believe it’s day 9 of Darnell’s NBUS #12 Challenge and I am only ‘just’ finding some time to play along :( Good new is I have an extra day to play along as it’s now on for 11 days!

button aqua use this the

Anyway, here’s what I’ve made using some NBUS…

NBUS#12a{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

 

So, I’ve had a trio of the Distress Oxide inks (Worn Lipstick, Broken China & Cracked Pistachio) for quite a while now and I’ve not really had chance to ‘play’ with them and experiment with blending them. That was until last week when I received a newly design Uniko product to test, Uniko Stencils!! This got me all inspired to test drive the inks with this new stencil :)

Yep, you are getting the first real look at ‘one’ of the new stencil designs being released this month! With the popularity of the recently released Background Blocks: Scattered Polka Dots clear stamp, I decided to do a larger version as a 6×6″ stencil.

NBUS#12b

And, just look at those inks on kraft card stock? They are so vibrant and I don’t know if it is just me, but they blend SO much easier than the regular distress inks?!

The layout of my card is from the current AAA Cards challenge HERE, which this fortnight is a sketch, seen below. My stencilled panel was perfect to split into 2 and I simply added a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.

#100

Ok, that’s all from me today. I have a list as long as my arm of housework and jobs to be done before I head across to Happy Stampers Festival this Saturday! I am sure there is still time to grab a ticket HERE as they’re not available to purchase on the door and must be bought prior to the show.

I am looking forward to the show & if you’re attending please drop by the stand and say ‘Hello’!

September 2017 Sneak Peeks Day 1

WhooHoo!

I know that many of you have been anxiously awaiting this release & apologies for the delay. It’s been a busy Summer for this mummy keeping the beans occupied, potty training in preparation for nursery in 9 days time! Plus we have been doing lots in the garden so the beans could play out and enjoy the nice weather when we have had some!

Anyway, back to why I am here and onto the first 2 of 5 sneak peeks. With the popularity of the Background Blocks Halftone clear stamp released in February and Background Blocks Doodle Flower & Horizontal Stripe in May I have this FUN Background Block joining the series…

I am having SO much fun designing these stamps and this one has tons of possibilities for all types of seasons and occasions. I can’t wait to show you how I have used it!

Todays second peek is of an addition to the Simply Said series, with a twist…

Ok, that’s all the peeks I have to share with you today, but I will be back tomorrow with sneak peek 3.
