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…

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.

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…


{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.

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…


{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.

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

    WOW! Such a lot of precision masking on that first card, that’s what would have taken me all the time rather than the colouring! And the shaker is so pretty in those soft pastels.

    Totally eye-popping and full of that WOW factor on the first one Bev. Such a fun and clever technique in a beautiful colour mix. The second one showcases the Originally Organics Additions in true feminine and elegant style. x
