Uniko Sponsors “Less is More” and Birthday Celebrations!

Hey!

I’m super duper pleased you have popped by today as again we have LOTS more fun to share with you! Not only is it the Uniko February & 5th Birthday Release Day, but we are celebrating along with “Less is More” and their birthday celebrations!

This post is simply awesome! As myself and Uniko are proud to be sponsoring the challenge  over at “Less is More” this week. This week the challenge HERE is a sketch…

The Uniko Design Team and myself have joined in on the fun and created some cards using the sketch to inspire you to join in and this is what I created…

As you can see I couldn’t resist using the NEW Explosion! Additions set, the sketch just lent itself to it perfectly. I used my MISTI tool to stamp both the halftone explosion in Lawn Fawn Sunflower and the explosion from the original Explosion! set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto white two card panels.

I then used my new Stampin’ Up! Stitched Framelits dies to die cut the circle and adhere it using foam adhesive. The WOW! is coloured with markers and fussy cut out and the small trio of horizontal lines are from the original Explosion! clear stamp set.

As it is Release Day here at Uniko, I decided to make one more card using the NEW Originally Organic Additions clear stamp set.

Again I have used my new stitched dies and I layered it with an old Papertrey Ink doily die. The flower is stamping in Memento and coloured with Copic Markers and I added some Bakers Twine to follow the sketch.

Ok, that’s all from me, but be sure to follow the links below to see what some of the Uniko Design Team created…

I’ll be back AGAIN soon with the traditional February 2017 & 5th Birthday Release, Reveal, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Introducing… Explosion! Additions

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the February & 5th Birthday product release are well underway, we’ve only one more product to introduce after today! Yesterday the Design Team and I introduced Background Blocks Halftone. If you missed it and the previous products on and Tuesday and Monday you can catch up HEREHERE and HERE.

Today we are back to introduce you to Explosion! Additions. Like yesterday this set came about due to the Modern Pop Art trend that is set to make a reappearance this year. I’ve always had a LOVE for Pop Art and especially the work of Roy Litchenstein. Hence the launch of Explosion! clear stamp set a few years ago.

I’ve been wanting to breath new life into Explosion! and what better way than to do so when it’s going to be trendy again?! So I introduce you too Explosion! Additions…

The new Freshly Made Sketch seen HERE and below was just perfect for this card! Again I have paired both Explosion! and Explosion! Additions clear stamp sets.

I’ve utilised my MISTI tool again to position and stamp the large explosion on both the base card and the layer down the middle of the card. The WOW! is also stamped using the MISTI and I used my Mini Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers to achieve the ombre mix of colours. I added a smothering of Clear Wink of Stella too!

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 😉 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 – 19th Sept, these little teasers give you hints at what is in store!

Introducing 20th – 24th Sept, here you will see a closer look at the clear stamp sets being released with a daily blog hop with the Uniko DT.

Release Day! Saturday 25th February 9am BST you will get to see the products in their entirety and purchase them HERE on the website! As usual there will be a Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Thank you for stopping by today and I’d LOVE to hear your initial thoughts on the Sneak Peeks! Hope to see you back tomorrow?!

Uniko Challenge #35

Hey!

Welcome to the August Uniko challenge. We have another fun challenge this month to spark your creativity…

Inspired By A Song Title! This sounds like a hard challenge, but when you google a word to see if it appears in a song title, you WILL be surprised as to how many there are!!

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 month we have another super Guest Designer joining us this month, Glenda from My Paper Cat.

Glenda was the lucky winner from Challenge #33 and has created this beauty to inspire you…

Isn’t it fabulous, all those delicate stitches. CLICK HERE to see more from Glenda and leave some love :)

Here’s what I came up with…

USC#35

 

I was inspired by the song ‘Explosion’ by Ellie Goulding. I wanted to do something different and a little unusual as well as dust off a clear stamp set I hadn’t used for a while! So I googled explosion as a song title and that’s what came up!

I decided to use the current Freshly Made Sketches layout again, seen HERE and below. It worked so well for the placement of the explosion image.

FMS Final 250-001

I knew I wanted my card to be colourful too with a sparkly explosion, so I reached for my mini distress inks and Clarity Brushes to created an ink blended panel, following the design of the sketch above.

 

USC#35a

 

Kinda perfect for the current challenge over at AAA Cards HERE, which is all about blending!

#71

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