Introducing… Background Blocks Falling Snowflakes

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have stopped by today, as here at Uniko preparations for the October 2017 product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks and we are now onto day 3 of the product introductions. You can catch up HERE and HERE with day 1 and 2.

Today the Design Team and I are introducing the next stamp in the Background Blocks series, called Falling  Snowflakes. If you’ve been a long time follower, you will know that I love, love LOVE snowflakes :) so this stamp just had to be done!

Plus I am reintroducing the Designer Dies Snowflake Trio – YAY! This set of dies was originally launched back in October 2013 and due to various reasons that I won’t bore you with, I scaled back on restocking dies. Anyway, I am super duper pleased to have this set back in and available to purchase again with the October Release!!

So, how about some inspiration using these products…

This card shows the design in it’s entirety, a lovely cascade of simple snowflakes! Here I have embossed them in white onto Stampin’ Up! Night Of Navy card along with an embossed sentiment from BIG & BOLD Snow. I added a few baby blue tiny rhinestone for a little sparkle too!

I used my MISTI to position both the sentiment and the background block, as I knew I would want to do another card using this layout and this is how…

I simply reversed the colours and this time added a medium snowflake from the Designer Die Snowflake Trio, which is smothered in Stampin’ Up! glitter!

Hopefully you can see the sparkle in the photo above, it sure makes my heart happy to see sparkly Uniko snowflakes again!

Welcome back to day 3 of the October 2017 Sneak Peeks and thank you to all that left such lovely comments on yesterday’s peeks HERE.

Today I have another peek to share with you.

As I said during the September Release, I am absolutely LOVING the Background Blocks, both designing new ones and using them too!

So here is another to add to the collection and I am sure it won’t disappoint, especially when you see what the Design Team have made using it 😉

That’s all I have to share with you today, but I will be back tomorrow with more!

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!

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.

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

February 2017 & 5th Birthday Reveal, Release & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Welcome to the Uniko February 2017 & 5th Birthday Reveal, Release & GIVEAWAY!

Today I am here with the help of the awesome design team to introduce you to the FIVE clear stamp sets available to purchase HERE now!

Let’s have a look at them… First up we have one of the new style stamps and first in the series of Block Party. This one is appropriately named Block Party Birthday…

Block Party Birthday £9 / £9.95 Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017 www.uniko.co.uk

As you can see the stamp features some awesome birthday themed words in fabulous and trendy fonts, along with some current and retired Uniko birthday images. The stamp measures 9.5 x 13cm. If you missed seeing this set in action during the introductions, you can catch up HERE. However, I am sure you will see a few more ideas using this stamp along todays hop 😉

Next we have Originally Organic Additions…

Originally Organic Additions £9 / £9.95 Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017 www.uniko.co.uk

I couldn’t resist bringing you this additions clear stamp set to not only work on its own, but to work with the popular Originally Organics clear stamp set released towards the end of 2016. Many of you will recognise the heart wreath featured in the set, which was part of a digital collection of stamps I designed for Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine HERE.

Another new style clear stamp series called Background Blocks. They are what they say, simply a block of yummy pattern! The first in this series Background Blocks Halftone is due to my LOVE of Pop Art and Roy Litchenstien, plus the modern pop art trend is making a come back this year.

Background Blocks Halftone £4 / £4.95 Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017 www.uniko.co.uk

This stamp measures 7 x 9.5 cm, the perfect size for a focal pattern on your card / project and more. There are so many possibilities with this stamp and if you missed the inspiration during the introductions, you can catch up HERE. This clear stamp goes hand in hand with the next clear stamp set…

Explosion! Additions £9 / £9.95 Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017 www.uniko.co.uk

Explosion! Additions clear stamp set, again due to my LOVE of Pop Art and to breath fresh life into the previously released Explosions! clear stamp set. Oh the fun I have had with these stamps 😉 If you missed the introduction of this set you can catch up HERE.

Lastly and by no means least, I think I save my NEW favourite to last, I welcome Uniko Style to the Uniko clear stamp line up…

Background Blocks Halftone £4 / £4.95 Copyright Uniko Ltd 2017 www.uniko.co.uk

Uniko Style is a modern Scandinavian inspired floral building and layering stamp set. This set might not be much to look at from the product picture itself, but the samples in the introduction HERE show just how it looks stamped in colour.

Now I have done all the formal introductions, here are a few more cards I made using the new stamps…

ReleaseDay1

{CLICK Photo for a closer look}

For my first card I decided to use Explosion! Additions and Background Blocks Halftone to try out an idea I had to add a halftone effect to the Copic coloured WOW! and BAM!

I started by stamping the words in Memento Tuxedo black and then colouring them with Copic Markers. I then created a negative mask of each of the words and stamped the Background Blocks Halftone in black ink just on the lower half of each word. I then masked each word to over stamp the halftone explosion in Lawn Fawn Merman ink.

ReleaseDay1a

{CLICK Photo for a closer look}

The card took a couple of hours to make (I am slow a colouring), but I am really pleased with the result and it turned out how I had imagined it too :)

Next I decided to reach for my new FAVE, Uniko Style…

ReleaseDay2

{CLICK Photo for a closer look}

I decided to make a shaker card and added a little subtle Background Blocks Halftone behind the shaker window for added interest.

ReleaseDay2a

{CLICK Photo for a closer look}

The sentiment is from Originally Organic Additions, the sequin mix from Pretty Pink Posh and the enamel accents from Stampin’ Up!

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?!

Introducing… I LOVE Tea

Hey!

Over HERE today the Uniko Design Team, Taheerah Atchia Uniko DT Alumni and I are introducing the soon to be released I LOVE Tea, be sure to hop on over and join in on the mini blog hop to see the awesome inspiration the team have created using this new set.

Anyway, I thought I would share a card here too…

IntroILTc

Like with yesterdays introduction of Beautiful Blooms III, I thought I would share some more inspiration here. This time I am sharing the first card I made using this soon to be released set, I LOVE Tea. As you can see this is a follow on set from the previously released I LOVE Coffee set.

Both the sentiment fonts and the drawing style is the same, so that the sets can be mixed and matched for even more possibilities.

If you have been HERE to join in on the blog hop today you will see that stacking the teacups is a popular trend with the DT, hence my choice to share this card here today! To create the stacked teacups I used the masking technique, I then flat coloured each of the cups with a trio of Copic markers, super simple.

IntroILTd

After colouring the teacups I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the card using foam adhesive. The sentiment is from the new set and comes as two stamps for more stamping possibilities.

Ok, that’s all from me just now, but I will be back later with a new Stamp Of The Week and card using the set. Until then, thank you for stopping by and for all the lovely comments.

Introducing… Beautiful Blooms III

Hey!

Over HERE today the Uniko Design Team and I are introducing the soon to be released Beautiful Blooms III, be sure to hop on over and join in on the mini blog hop to see the awesome inspiration the team have created using this new set.

Anyway, I thought I would share a card here too…

IntroBBIIIf

This is a super simple card using all the layers of the bloom. I started out by stamping the solid flower in SU! Summer Sun onto a scrap of white card and with Cameo Coral onto my card base. The first detail is stamped in Pumpkin Pie on the first and Calypso Coral on the second. I then added the outline and smaller detail in VersaMark ink and heat embossing with detail white EP.

IntroBBIIIe

The leaves are from the set and the sentiment from Pure Florals: Cosmos. A few tiny rhinestones for some sparkle to finish it off.

Ok, that’s all from me just now, but I will be back later with my last Stamp Of The Week card this week, using English Country Garden Butterflies. Until then, thank you for stopping by and for all the lovely comments.

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 😉 As you can see it would be perfect for Easter, but how about new baby, children’s cards or even Valentine’s???
