January Non Release Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Happy Weekend!

Welcome to the first Non-Release Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY of 2019 – Whoohoo!! 

Just like last January, I have given the Design Team a huge task of choosing to use their favourites from those released in 2018. Thats a total of 23 new clear stamp sets, 2 re-introduced clear stamp set, 14 stencil designs and 2 new designer die collections to choose from!

Even for me that is a tough task, singling out just one product. However, with my newest publication and feature in Making Cards & Papercraft magazine, I was drawn to Wonderful Day. Here’s how I used it…

Clean & Simple (CAS)  is my go to style and a challenge that enhances that style is a must to join in on. I Just love this weeks sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 370-001

I opted for a one layer card, this makes for easy mailing but also keeps things CAS too. The Wonderful Day clear stamp set has fabulous sentiments, but I decided to use one from Pure Florals: Peony. Once this was stamped I added in the floral detailing reflecting the sketch and added some simple marker colouring for that pop of rainbow. I also added my favourite White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to the centre of the flowers.

Before I hand you over to my amazing team, I thought I would share a few photos of snippets from the magazine feature.

This is my first feature with this magazine and so they asked for a little bit about me. A lovely write up and always delighted for people to get to know me a little better.

I think my love of Nuvo Drops came across in this feature and also my love of rainbow and favourite trio of colours 😉 If you want to get your mitts on the magazine it is available in UK leading supermarkets and can also be purchased via this link. You might just want to get a copy as their is a Uniko GIVEAWAY inside too!!

WOW! Wasn’t that a fun hop. It certainly looks like all the florals were a BIG hit with the Design Team.

I’d LOVE to know what your favourite product released in 2018 was, be sure to add it to the comments, I might just pick a random winner to win their favourite 😉

Happy Weekend & HAPPY long Bank Holiday weekend to all in the UK, you’ve got to love an extra day to the weekend!

I am always truly honoured to be approached by editors to design digital stamps and have my cards featured. I also love sharing things for free, which brings me on to the feature in Cards & Crafts for Christmas….

I also LOVE snowflakes, glitter and sparkle, so when I received the brief my heart skipped a beat and these are the snowflake digital stamps I came up with and a snippet of the feature from the magazine…

The digital stamps can be downloaded from www.simplycardsmag.com and the digital stamps in the magazine can be found HERE, you will need to register to be able to download them.

I’d LOVE to see if you use these freebies or any of the free digital stamps I have designed in the past. I have links to some of them HERE.

So if you have made something and blogged about it, email me a link to bev@uniko.co.uk OR if you have posted it on social media, such as Instagram or Facebook, be sure to tag @unikoltd or  use the #unikoltd or #unikostamps and I will be able to find them.

Uniko Featured in PaperCrafter Magazine!

Hey!

It’s been and is a super fun time at Uniko HQ at the moment.

The May 2018 Release Countdown has begun and I have been sharing sneak peeks HERE, HERE and HERE of the new products coming on 12th May at 9am BST. I am also in countdown mode to Happy Stampers Festival, where you will get to buy all the Uniko products available on the website, including the NEW Release! I will be there along with some of the FABULOUS Uniko Design Team and I will be demoing some of the NEW Release too 😉

Along with all this I have been busy behind the scenes designing and working on some FUN magazine features! Today I get to share the feature I have in PaperCrafter Magazine :)

PCM

This is the first time I have worked with PaperCrafter Magazine and it is fun to see my worked featured in a different style and format. The magazine is NOW available in the shops and the FREE Tropical Digital Stamps can be downloaded from the PaperCrafter Magazine website HERE.

Here is a look at the digital stamps available in the download…

TropicalDigitalStamps

Those who are familiar with Uniko Clear Stamps will recognise Bob The Toucan from the Paradise Clear Stamp Set and some of the leaves from Paradise Leaves Clear Stamp Set.

ParadisePP

ParadiseLeavesPP

I’ve changed them up a little and I’ve added in a Flamingo friend and a pretty Plumeria flower.

UnikoPCmag1

I made this extra card not featured in the magazine to share with you today…

UnikoPCmag1a

I started by printing Bob onto a piece of Stampin’ Up! Whisper White CS and then I coloured him (not so well) with my Copic markers. I then fussy cut just the top half of the branch around him. I also printed off 3 Plumeria flowers and coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them out.

UnikoPCmag1b

The background is one of the tropical leaves coloured on the computer and printed out at 50% opacity to give a slightly softer look and colouring on the computer is so much quicker 😉 I’ve then adhered Bob and the Plumeria flowers using 1mm thick foam adhesive and added some Stampin’ Up! enamel dots to finish the design off.

Be sure to head on over to the PaperCrafter website and get your FREE digital stamp download HERE.

That’s all I have to share for now! I’d LOVE to see what you create using the freebies, so please tag @unikoltd on social media or #unikoltd 😉
