Sneak Peeks

7th Birthday & February Release Sneak Peeks

Woohoo!

It is finally time to share the ‘official’ sneak peeks for the 7th Birthday February Release! With so much FUN & excitement already, it has been hard to keep these till now & you might have already spotted LOTS of peeks at the new products being released around social media AND over on the website blog!
Anyway, this month I have 6 new clear stamp sets, 2 designer die collections AND 1 stencil design being released on February 11th at 9pm GMT.

Let’s have a look at the peeks…

Do you recognise this font? Did you see the Guest Designer card I made for “Less is More” which I shared HERE!

Yep, it is the next addition to the BIG & BOLD series AND to top it off rather nicely this clear stamp set has a collection of coordinating Designer Dies – WOOHOO!!

Next I have a peek at a new sentiment clear stamp set…

When I design for releases I often look at what is missing from the Uniko inventory and what I would use and need as a stamper & card maker! I was missing sentiments that could be used inside my cards as well as on the outside, so here it is!

You know I can’t resist a new floral set! So here is my modern take on the Passiflora (Passion Flower) AND this clear stamp set also has a collection of coordinating Designer Dies – YAY!

Lastly for the clear stamps in this release I have 2 new designs to add to the growing Background Blocks series…

BUT, wait…. that is only 5 sneak peek pics, where is the 6th I hear you ask?!

Well, I am keeping the 6th under wraps a little longer! You will have to keep an eye out during the introductions for its ‘formal’ introduction and the reason for keeping it ‘secret’ for a little longer 😉

And lastly, but by no means least I have a new stencil design…

That is all the sneak peeks for this release, which means tomorrow the FUN starts!! Myself, our Guest Designer Ruth & the Design Team will be back to start the product introductions with lots of inspiration.

I’d LOVE to know what you are most excited to see in this line up of products and what your favourite is!

Win Stamps For A Year! DON’T FORGET to enter the HUGE prize giveaway on THIS post too!

Thank you so much for stopping by today & I do hope you will come back & see what these sneak peeks can do?!

Hugs

December 2018 Release Sneak Peeks!

Hey!

Yep, I must be a little crazy, but I thought I would squeeze in one more release before 2018 is over 😉 So, I am super happy to share the December 2018 Release Sneak Peeks with you…

This month I am releasing 3 NEW clear stamp sets…

This first peek you might have seen on Social Media over the past couple of weeks 😉 It is the latest Pure Florals flower and one that has been highly requested for some time now.

This second peek is of a new Winter themed set, with my favourite, snowflakes!! And lastly, but by no means least the last clear stamp set for this release is another fun modern flower builder clear stamp set.

And how about a couple more Uniko Stencils to add into the mix?!

Just a ‘little’ release this month 😉 I will be back tomorrow with the first product introduction, I do hope you will join me and I look forward to hearing what you think about these Sneak Peeks 🙂

* Release Day is Tuesday 11th December and all the products will be available to purchase at 9pm GMT *

Thanks for stopping by today.

October 2018 Release Sneak Peeks!

Woohoo!

It’s time for another NEW release and to share some official sneak peeks with you! If you follow @unikoltd on Instagram, you might have seen a few peeks I have been sharing here and there 😉
This month I have 4 NEW clear stamp sets, 2 re-release clear stamp sets AND 3 stencil designs! They will all be available to purchase at a NEW release trial time of 9pm GMT Tuesday 30th October.
Anyway, I will remind you of that as we progress through the release festivities. How about I share some peeks with you…

Firstly, here are the 2 peeks of the clear stamp sets coming back from retirement. Those who have been followers and customers of Uniko for a few years might recognise these.

Next we have peeks at the 4 new clear stamp sets…

And lastly, but by no means least the 3 new stencil designs…

As you can see it is a pretty BIG release and I can’t wait to share projects and ideas using them all 🙂

My awesome Design Team are going to help me do this too and we will be back tomorrow with the start of our traditional product introductions.

August 2018 Release Sneak Peeks!

Hello!

Sorry that it has taken SO long for me to organise the next release here at Uniko, life got a little crazy at one point. Now we are half way through the Summer holidays here in the UK and the majority of my time is keeping The Beans entertained & having days out to enjoy the sunshine we have been having.

Anyway, it is finally time to share the August 2018 Release Sneak Peeks with you – YAY! So let’s get to the peeks..

First up a peek at an addition to the geometric Background Builders. This set has many fun possibilities and is great for your masculine themed projects and pairs wonderfully with the previously released Bee Happy clear stamp set 😉

Those that know me know that I like a new floral and this little set is one of those that has a ‘beautiful’ floral duo and sentiments to match.

I’ve had many requests for more BIG & BOLD sentiments, so here is the next in the series. Can you guess the word from this peek?!

This next week is a fun framed floral stamp. It has so many fun possibilities and it features some Flower Power and other motifs from current clear stamp sets. I’m looking forward to showing you more of this stamp in the coming days 😉

Lastly, I decided it was time to ‘officially’ release this little clear stamp set…

This was the Release Day freebie from back in December 2017, called So Much. From Release Day (19th August), it will be available for purchase. I’m looking forward to sharing more with you all using this set.

That’s all the Sneak Peeks for this little release! Be sure to join us tomorrow, as the DT and I begin the product introductions 🙂

Until then, I would love to know what you think of the sneak peeks!

Hugs

Who doesn’t love a silhouette and a floral one? Silhouettes have been around in the paper crafting and stamping world, probably from the get go! However, there seems to be a revival of this trend and I thought I’d put a little of my style out there too 😉

Next, I have a fun new background sneak peek.

Uniko Guest Designer for May 2018!

Hey & Happy Monday!

Today I am super excited to be introducing Uniko’s Guest Designer for the month of May. I am also really happy to be opening the Uniko Guest Designer door again, and I am hoping it to be a regular occurrence, especially during release months!

I am truly honoured to have Anna Uhras from URAscrap. I am sure many of you are familiar with Anna’s work, she is a Design Team Member for CASology, a card challenge blog Uniko frequently sponsors, Design in Papers and Citrus Twist.

Over to Anna now to introduce herself…

Hi!

I am Anna Uhras ,43 years old, from Sweden. My profession is Hairdresser and I am happily married to my husband Henrik, who is a farmer soon to be for 24 years. We live at our farm and together we have five lovely kids aged 22, 20,18, 6 and 4. I work part-time and then I am a stay at home mom. My family is my heart and joy!
 
Scrapbooking is my “Me time” and I have to admit that it is also sort of an addiction if you ask my family, LOL! I love all those pretty papers and embellishments and I love to be creative with them. Actually ! can’t live without scrapping!
My first contact with scrappy things was in 2007 by making cards. But it wasn’t until 2012 I discovered layouts and then I never looked back. I think my scrappy style has evolved a lot since I first started. I love to try new things and techniques all the time.
Right now I love to use stencils and mist’s for my layout backgrounds. Colours make my heart sing so I use a lot of colours on my projects. However I feel I have a pretty clean style. My favourite crafting supplies are patterned papers, colour mist’s, stamps cotton thread and my sewing machine, in fact it’s hard to find any of my projects without any stitches. Also I love to use digital cut files with my Silhouette Cameo.
My creations are mostly layouts (both 12×12 and 8.5×11), cards and TN-spreads as well.

I’m so excited, happy and very proud to be your guest here at Uniko Studio, thank you so much Bev!

Take care! Anna xo

Welcome Anna! It was lovely to find out more about you, your family and what you LOVE most about paper crafting.

Anna will be joining us throughout May here on the blog as our Guest Designer AND joining in on some of the May 2018 Release 🙂 Until you get to see Anna’s projects in full, here are a few peeks at what Anna has created to share…

 

Stunning peeks, don’t you think? I sure am excited to see the full projects and read about how they were created.

Until then, thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will pop back tomorrow, as countdown to the Uniko May 2018 Release starts!

Hugs

 

Uniko Sponsors Passion For ProMarkers!

Hello again!

I did say it was a busy day here at Uniko HQ and I am back again to let you know that Uniko is super happy to be sponsoring another challenge in blog land… Passion For ProMarkers!

This week HERE at Passion For ProMarkers they want to see ’embossing’ on your project. It can be any type of project and any technique of embossing, as long as you use some kind of Windsor & Newton (formally Letraset) product to colour the project.

So I challenged myself to play along and as I don’t have many ProMarkers, just the Neon collection, I opted for a ‘Happy’ card…

HappyDoily1

It feels like and age since I used Decorative Doilies The Hands Of Time and the thought of colouring one of my favourite doilies neon made me happy. I started out by stamping the doily in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and quickly adding Stampin’ Up! black EP. This helped me to keep the colour inside the lines!

The ‘Happy’ sentiment is also heat embossed, fussy cut out and adhered using foam adhesive. You are getting another peek at a October 2017 Release clear stamp set 😉

I hope you’re inspired to join in on the challenge & I look forward to seeing you in the gallery. That is all I have to share today, but I will be back with the Uniko DT tomorrow with our first October 2017 product introduction.

Until then, thanks for stopping by!

Uniko Sponsors CASology!

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

I do hope you are having a good week so far? It is a busy one here at Uniko HQ as we are in full swing with the October 2017 Release. We have had all the clear stamp set sneak peeks and I have been sharing some other product peeks over on Instagram and Facebook! There is also a peek at a new die collection in this post 😉

Anyway, along with all the festivities, Uniko is super duper happy to be sponsoring one of my favourite challenges this week, CASology.

This week the cue word over at CASology HERE is ‘ODD’…

Week 270 - Odd

I found this a little hard a first, but I then got to thinking of odd numbers and this card came about…

UnikoSponsorsCASologyODD1{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I chose an ‘odd’ number of flowers and my favourite number! I dusted of Flower Power #1 clear stamps and paired them with the NEW matching Flower Power Designer Dies. Yep, another NEW set of coordinating dies 🙂

The layout of my card is loosely based on this weeks CAS Colours & Sketches sketch seen HERE and below. I’ve my Design Team card over HERE too, if you want some more inspiration today!

sketch 244

To make my card a little more ‘odd’ I decided to use both positive and negative die cutting for the flower trio…

I hope you’re inspired to join in on the challenges & I look forward to seeing you in the galleries too! I will be back a little later on with another Uniko Sponsorship card!

Until then, thanks for stopping by!
