Revisited Clear Stamp Sets (Page 14)

August 2015 Design Team Blog Hop, GIVEAWAY!

Hey!

I’m SO happy you’ve stopped by the blog today as today is the August 2015 Design Team Blog Hop. Along with the hop and GIVEAWAY! So be sure to grab a drink, get comfy, relax and enjoy!

As we’ve quite a few new followers here, (“Hello & Thank you”) I will explain what’s going on! Here at Uniko I *USUALLY* only release new products every other month. Keep your eyes peeled this week for a NEW set of dies lining the shelf this week at Uniko HQ!! This is for a number of reasons, firstly, being an avid paper crafter myself and knowing the current economic climate I know ‘some’ are on a limited budget when it comes to buying new stash, so this way you’re not tempted to splurge too much every month.

The second reason is that it is just me here at Uniko HQ. I currently run this little business single handedly, designing, blogging, demoing, classes, packing. Alongside that I am a full time mum to 11  month old twin boys! So releasing every other month gives me chance to keep my head above water, well…just about!

 So, on the in-between release months the Design Team & I take a look back at a previously released product, dust it off and give it some love! This month I decided to dust off TWO products, the previously released Beautiful Blooms I and II…

I chose these two sets as it’s Summer here (well, it’s supposed to be Summer!) and I do love a flower or two. When I released both these sets HERE and HERE they were firm favourites and hardly left my desk. Though I still LOVE them I don’t always reach for them so it was time to give them some more love.

As always I like to share a couple of my ‘old faves’ using the sets…

And here are a couple of new projects using them…

I started out with Beautiful Blooms I, vellum and detail white embossing powder. I simply stamped the blooms in VersaMark ink before heat embossing them white. I then used the matching Designer Dies to cut them out (these will be back in stock soon) before adhering them to a Melon Mambo card base. The sentiment from Simply Said Birthday is also heat embossed gold. I also added a few gold gems to finish the card off.

The current challenge over at “Just Us Girls”HERE is a Trend Week, the trend being vellum, so I thought I’d link it up there too 😉

Next I have a card I made for Saturday’s class at The Paperlane. It’s another card coloured with the Zig Clean Color Brush Pens…

I’m still getting to grips with the pens, but I am rather liking the results and how ‘easy’ they are to use. I especially like the spectrum of colours & shading you can achieve with just a few pens.

That’s all I had time to create, but now for some AWESOME projects from the Design Team using Beautiful Blooms I & or II.

Don’t forget the GIVEAWAY… Simply comment along the hop for your chance to win the featured sets or a eGift Certificate code to the same value if you already own them.

NEW Website & a card

Hey!

So, finally the NEW and improved Uniko website is up and running (YAY!) I still have products to add (dies and digital stuff), and I plan on adding more gallery photos. But the clear stamps are all up on there and the NEW loyalty points reward system is working too!

Here is a little overview of the loyalty rewards points system…

How it works:

Register for a new account on the new website. You will receive 25 points for opening an account, you only need to create an account once.

For every £1 you spend (not including postage costs) you will receive 1 point.

Once you have accumulated 50 points this will be worth £1 off a future purchase. Or you can save your points up to purchase a product.

  • £4.95 set requires 247 points
  • £9.95 set requires 497 points
  • £15.95 set requires 797 points

Points can be earned through social media, such as liking a product on Facebook, Tweeting & Google+

Points can be earned for referring a friend to Uniko

Points will be added to Uniko customer accounts (once created by the customer) who have ordered on the old website from February 11th 2015 onwards.

Exceptions:

Points will not be earned when purchasing gift certificates.

Points earned while placing an order cannot be used on that order, they will be added to your account on order completion.

If you are not logged into your account when placing an order, you will not receive points on that order.

Uniko has the right to ban or restrict account holders from earning or redeeming points if Uniko deems the user/account holder to be abusing the system.

So with all the new changes and adding the system, unfortunately I haven’t been able to ‘bulk’ transfer across customer accounts. As this could be an inconvenience to you or if you have problems setting up a new account I am able to set up accounts individually. You can login or register an account HERE.

If you require me to set your account up, simply email me at beverley@unikostudio.com with a USERNAME you would like to use (this cannot be changed once the account is set up) and an EMAIL address you want associated with the account. 

If you have ordered from Uniko over the past 2 weeks you will have noticed I have changed the stamp set inlays to co-ordinate with our new fresh look. I will be providing a downloadable file containing ALL the new inlays for you to be able to print at home if you would like all your Uniko clear stamps to look the same. Especially if you are a little OCD like me 😉 This will be available in the next week or so.

Anyway, I think that is all I have to share for now about the website 😉 be sure to have a look about.

I do have a card to share too…

 

This is one of the cards the class made at The Paperlane on saturday, we did some die cutting techniques mixed with ‘spotlight’ stamping. This card was also inspired and a CASE of THIS card by DT member Sarah P.

I decided to use turquoise, instead of the gold like on Sarah’s card and change the orientation and die cut mounted layer. Below is a close up of the detail…

 

I have another 2 classes coming up on July 11th at The Paperlane, which is also Uniko Release Day. We will be using the new products in the class, so if you fancy trying the sets out before you by be sure to secure your place in the class by emailing Caz, caz3410@gmail.com

Ok, that’s all from me today, I had best go and get some work done whilst the beans are still napping! Thanks for stopping by today :)

Hey!

I’m SO happy you’ve stopped by the blog today as today is the June 2015 Design Team Blog Hop. Along with the hop and giveaway, I am also sharing lots of NEWS!! So be sure to grab a drink, get comfy, relax and enjoy!

The second reason is that it is just me here at Uniko HQ. I currently run this little business single handedly, designing, blogging, demoing, classes, packing. Alongside that I am a full time mum to 9 month old twin boys! So releasing every other month gives me chance to keep my head above water, well…just about!

So, on the in-between release months the Design Team & I take a look back at a previously released product, dust it off and give it some love! This month I decided to dust off the previously released Pure Florals: Gerbera…

 

 

Along with this set being the TOP selling product here at Uniko 😉 I thought it would be nice for some lovely Summer floral cards (though this is the kind of flower that can be used all year round too.

Here are a couple of my ‘old faves’ using the set…
