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…

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.

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…

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.

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.

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 😉

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.

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

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.

Uniko2017MayRelease1

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

First up I have a zesty green Happy Succulent card to share! I started out by using my four new mini Altenew inks and Clarity Stencil Brushes to create an ombre background. The smaller images from the clear stamp set are then stamped and heat embossed in Cosmic Shimmer White EP.

Uniko2017MayRelease1a

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I’ve one last card to share with you before I had you over to the AMAZING design team who have out done themselves and me again with the superb quality and workmanship with their creations!

I decided to use Happy Succulents again and this time I paired it with Background Blocks Horizontal Stripe. I went for a much softer pastel colour palette to create a wedding card.

Uniko2017MayRelease2

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

My colours were inspired by the current Color Throwdown challenge colours seen HERE and below, so soft and pretty.

Again I used Altenew inks, using my MISTI to stamp the images. The main succulent bouquet is fussy cut and doused lovingly with clear Wink Of Stella!

I’ve one more card to share with you today using this set…

IntroHappySucculents2

 

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

This time I stamped the succulent bouquet in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then heat embossed it in Stardust EP. I then used my Copic markers to colour the outline succulent and foliage.

IntroHappySucculents2b

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I then die cut a rectangular frame from black CS and adhered it to the card base before stamping the ‘happy’ three times using my MISTI tool for perfect placement. The ‘Sending You Lots Of’ sentiment is also from the set. I adhered the fussy cut bouquet with foam adhesive and then finished the card off with more enamel dots. Can you tell they are a favourite of mine at the moment?!

Introducing… Background Blocks Doodle Flower & Horizontal Stripe

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the May product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 4 clear stamp sets being released and NOW it is time for the Design Team and I to introduce them to you.

Starting over HERE, myself and my AWESOME Design Team are introducing TWO clear stamp sets, Background Blocks Doodle Flower & Horizontal Stripe. These two sets have so many fun possibilities and can be used and paired with all sorts of stamps and paper crafting goodies.
With doing an individual card for each stamp over at the start of the hop, I decided to show how these two background stamps can be combined…

IntroBBdfandhs2

{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
First up a rainbow card, who doesn’t love a colourful rainbow?!  Now, I have to say that the MISTI tool comes in very VERY handy for multi coloured stamping AND for perfect placement of the doodle flower stamp over the top!
IntroBBdfandhs2a
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
The rainbow of stripes is stamped using Lawn Fawn inks and the doodle flower is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I added a sentiment from Simply Said and some Stampin’ Up! heart shape enamel embellishments to 3 of the larger flowers.
I’ve one more card to share using both the stamps, both in a selective stamping way…
IntroBBdfandhs1
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
Again I used my MISTI tool to stamp the horizontal stripes and this time I selectively inked just 3 of the stripes in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with Gold EP.
IntroBBdfandhs1a
{Click Photo for a Closer Look}
The stripes are then embellished with Lawn Fawn Merman doodle flowers, Stampin’ Up! Enamel dots and a sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #6.
Ok, that’s all I have to share today using these two new stamps and hopefully I have inspired you a little as to how they can be used! Now I am handing you over to the Design Team and you WILL be inspired with how they have all used the stamps.

Introducing… Block Party Birthday

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 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 starting over HERE we are introducing a new to Uniko style of stamp called Block Party. The first stamp in this series is appropriately named Block Party Birthday.
I was having a ball with this stamp set over the weekend and made a few cards to share with you. I seem to have gone down more of a masculine route too with the colours and styles. This stamp also lent itself to me stepping away from my usual CAS style for more of a mix media styled cards…
IntroBPbirthday3

{CLICK Photo for a Closer Look}

First up I decided to go for a chalkboard effect (looks like I wasn’t the only one). I started by stamping the image twice (using the MISTI tool) with VersaMark ink. I then heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Detail True White EP. I then ran my white ink pad down all four sides of the one layer card and I also brushed some white ink across the panel to achieve a dustier/slightly distress look.

IntroBPbirthday3a

{CLICK Photo for a Closer Look}

Next I was inspired by DT member Deborah’s inspiration post HERE and FINALLY dusted off my Brusho’s! These have been stored away for over 6 years, I last used them at Uni! Anyway, this is the result…

IntroBPbirthday2

{CLICK Photo for a Closer Look}

I started with an A5 piece of watercolour card and I used a large brush to cover the paper with water. I then chose a selection of Brusho colours, Lime Green, Ost. Blue, Crimson and Violet and using a smaller brush I simply lightly flicked the colour onto the paper and let the water work the magic. After I added all the colours I did go back a flick some more water randomly to make some of the colours mix better.

IntroBPbirthday2a

{CLICK Photo for a Closer Look}

After leaving it to completely dry I again used my MISTI to stamp the image in VersaFine Onyx Black ink a few times to get a crisp image. I am super pleased with how this turned out and will definitely be using them again soon 😉

Lastly I decided to go for another rainbow card…

IntroBPbirthday4

{CLICK Photo for a Closer Look}

 

For this one I dusted off my Mini Distress Inks and simply inked the stamp up yellow to turquoise and letting the colours overlap. So quick, easy and a multitude of colour options!
