January Non Release Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

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!!



Okay, let’s see what the design team favourites are and how they have been inspired to use the products. Be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win a Uniko £25 eGift Certificate. You have until Midnight (GMT) Saturday 19th January 2019 to comment, winner will be announced Sunday 20th 2019.


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 😉
Thanks for joining in on the fun.

    Congratulations on the publication! Well deserved.
    I love that sketch you used and have been thinking of
    using it; I love what you did and the pretty rainbow of
    color petals. My favorite of 2018 (that I don’t have!) is
    Spring Botanicals: Daffodil; so pretty.
