Stamp Set Focus – Background Builders Classics

Hey!

I had planned on writing this blog post last night, but the motherhood exhaustion hit post Bean bedtime and I just chilled instead – sorry!

Anyway, this is one of those types of post that I keep meaning to do more of and then life/other work gets in the way. I had also envisioned I would use more of the stamps from the clear stamp set I am focusing on, but I kinda got hooked on just one of the stamps! Please tell me it’s not just me that has these problems 😉

For my first ‘Stamp Set Focus’, I wanted to use the recently released Background Builders Classics. I felt it needed a little more inky love.

For my first two cards I used the same layout (inspired by Jane’s Uniko DT post HERE). I used the horizontal stripe stamp from the set more as an accent, rather than to build a background too.

StampFocusBBClassics1

For this first card I dusted off some older clear stamp sets. The large bold HAPPY is from All Occasion Sentiments #2 and it is so much fun to stamp it in a rainbow of colours! The flowers are from Flower Power #7 and the smaller script birthday is from Simply Said Birthday. I added a few Nuvo Drops to finish of my design.

StampFocusBBClassics1a

As I still had the horizontal stripe stamp positioned in my MISTI, I stamped up another to create my next card. This time combining it with a sentiment from the recently released Sentiments Outlined and accented with some blooms from Beautiful Blooms II.

StampFocusBBClassics2

I love how quick this card was to make, just a little bit of simple stamping and masking for the blooms and a little dimension for the stamped panel.

StampFocusBBClassics2a

Next I switched up the orientation of my card and used another of my favourite techniques and paired the stamp with some other ‘older’ Uniko stamps.

StampFocusBBClassics3

Using a stamping tool means your stamp is always in the same place for repeated stamping. This is handy for this technique, where I have used water  based markers to colour my stamp. I have done this technique quite a few times, like HERE.

StampFocusBBClassics3a

I used Stampin’ Up! markers in Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Costal Cabana for a lovely tropical palette to go with images from Paradise and Paradise Leaves.

Lastly, I wanted to ‘build’ a background and this is the result…

StampFocusBBClassics4

Having created a bold background I wanted to showcase it in a way not to take too much focus from it and it also needed a pop of colour.

StampFocusBBClassics4a

I used Stampin’ Up! dies to create the HAPPY, which I die cut each letter 3 times and adhered them together with glue. I wanted them to have some dimension but not too much to make the card bulky. Again I used the partially stamped sentiment, script birthday from Simply Said Birthday.

I hope I have inspired you a little and given you some new ideas and techniques to try out. I sure had fun using this one stamp!

Thanks for stopping by.

Large Background Tropical Paradise Inspiration

Hello!

It is an overcast Thursday here in the NE of the UK 🙁 I am longing for the hot sunny days to return, so I can get out on more adventures with the boys and not get soaked through!

Anyway, I thought I would cheer Thursday up with some more Large Background Tropical Paradise inspiration. I have a couple of cards to share that both use an ink blended background. I created both backgrounds a while back when I was comparing Distress Oxide Inks with Hero Hues Reactive Inks and they are pretty much the same. I will do a comparison post soon, for now I used the backgrounds to make these cards…

LBtropicalparadise1

First up a fun technique I am loving right now, Reverse Emboss Resist. This is such an awesome technique to use with all those colourful ink blended backgrounds and large background stamps!

LBtropicalparadise1a

I used Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilised Amber, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers to create my ink blended background. Once it was fully dry, (either by heat setting or leaving for a few hours to dry naturally) I then stamped the Large Background Tropical Paradise in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with WOW! Clear Gloss EP.

LBtropicalparadise1b

Then, using Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink and ink blending tool I covered the whole panel with the black ink! This is quite scary as you feel you are going to ruin the image! It’ll turn out awesome though once you buff the image with a paper towel or semi dry stamp shammy. Then bring out the embossing shine again by heating up the embossing again gently.

Just look at those beautiful colours shine through 🙂 I finished the card off with a partially stamped and embossed ‘Celebrate’ from Sentiments Outlined.

Lastly for today I used my other ink blended panel as a backdrop for a partially stamped and fussy cut Large Background Tropical Paradise

LBtropicalparadise2

The ink blended background was created using Hero Hues Reactive inks. I used similar colours to the Distress Oxide Inks used for the first card. The colours I used are

LBtropicalparadise2a

I then stamped the Large Background Tropical Paradise onto some white card and fussy cut out across the diagonal to create a partial panel. I wanted the sentiment from Sentiments Outlined to be stamped onto the ink blended background.

I intended for this post to be finished and up yesterday, but due to a pulled right shoulder and two kiddos needing attention I didn’t get this last little bit done!

Today is my Bean free day, so I am hoping for a slower paced, restful but productive day! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day.

Introducing…Large Background Tropical Paradise

Hey!

Welcome to Day 2 of the July 2019 Release product introductions. This is the fun part where myself, my guest designer and the design team get to show you LOTS of inspiration, using all the new products leading up to  26th, July, Release Day!

Hopefully you have hopped on over from our lovely Guest Designer Keren’s blog HERE. If you missed the start of the hop and introduction to todays products, you can catch up HERE.

Today’s product is one new clear stamp set you might recognise. I recently designed it as part of a digital stamp collection for Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine HERE. As soon as I had designed it as a digital stamp I knew it HAD to be a physical stamp too! What better time than Summer (in the Northern Hemisphere) is there to be inspired and use this stamp?!

As much as this stamp looks fabulous in traditional tropical greens, it also looks awesome coloured rainbow style and paired with Bob the Toucan from Paradise clear stamp set…

July19intro7

I stamped the Large Background Tropical Paradise with Catherine Pooler Midnight ink. I then used Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends in a rainbow of colours to colour the leaves. Bob the Toucan is also stamped with Midnight ink and I simply coloured his beak and fussy cut him out.

July19intro7a

 

Now I couldn’t let the other strip of the Tropical Paradise that I’d coloured go to waste, so I put it to use on this next card…

July19intro8

This time I paired it with the ‘Have a Perfect Day’ sentiment from Sentiments Outlined which we introduced yesterday. I also added a couple of stamped leaves from Paradise Leaves and the solid Hibiscus flower from Paradise.

July19intro8a

I coloured the sentiment with a dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend and it is hard to see in the photo, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the Hibiscus flower.

Lastly I wanted to heat emboss the Large Background Tropical Paradise and I have also paired it with a stamp set we will be introducing on Thursday…

July19intro9

I used WOW! Jealous Guy embossing powder for the background, it is a lovely lime green. The sentiment is from a new clear stamp set called Wild and I have stamped the main bold ‘Wild’ from the set, coloured it with a fine liner, fussy cut the letters and adhered them to the card using foam adhesive. I’ve also added Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the ‘Wild’ sentiment.

July19intro9a

The smaller ‘About You’ is heat embossed with WOW! Opaque Bright White EP and I can’t wait to share more of this set on Thursday!

That’s all the samples I have to share with you today, but it wouldn’t be a release without a daily blog hop full of inspiration! 

As usual my AWESOME Design Team and wonderful Guest Designer this month, Keren Baker have worked their magic with todays products, so be sure to hop along & see them. This is the order of the hop…

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 😉

July 2022 Reveal, Release & Brand Ambassador Blog Hop!

Hello, Happy Friday and Happy Release Day! 

I do hope you have enjoyed the fun this week as myself and the Brand Ambassadors have shared inspiration using the new products in this mini release. The day is here and we can now officially introduce you to the 4 new products lining the shelves here at Uniko HQ and they are all available to purchase HERE.

Now, let’s get to the inspiration as I know that’s what you’ve come for!

For my first card today I used Background Blocks Rays and paired it with the previously released Nautical Treasures, which is back in stock.

This card was inspired by my husbands recent work on a project for Hartlepool Council, they are hosting The Tall Ships Race again in 2023 and I’ve been lucky to get the inside scoop on promotional material and videos!

I thought the rays would be an awesome backdrop to the sail boat sailing off into the sun set. I think it creates an awesome CAS masculine card.

Next, I wanted to use Stencil – Tropical Leaf #2 to create another CAS card with some fussy cut detail.

For this I lined up my stencil with the edge of my white mat layer. I used a trio of green inks to blend through the stencil and then simply fussy cut around the leaf just in this one corner.

I used pink & aqua ink to blend onto my base card and by adding the leaf panel to the card base with foam adhesive creates interest by allowing the ink blended background show through a little more in this one area. I used texture paste to add the leaf detail and the sentiment is from Paradise clear stamp set.

Lastly for today I used Paw Print Hearts with the previously released Sunshine & Rainbows.

Again, this was another idea I had in my mind when I designed the stamp set, so it felt good to get ink to stamp and to card!

I stamped the rainbow direct onto my mat layer using my stamping platform and then used the same colours to ink and stamp the paw print heart. I’ve adhered this using foam adhesive.

The sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks II and the tiny heart accents from Sunshine & Rainbows.

That is all from me today. Be sure to check out what the Brand Ambassadors have created, you can find the links HERE.

I hope you have chance to leave comments along the way, I will be randomly selecting one lucky from all that are left during the week to win a £20 eGift Certificate to use in the Uniko store. I will announce the winner here on the blog Friday 5th August.


Thank you for all the support and for joining in on the fun this week. I will be back tomorrow with more inspiration!

Introducing…Stencil Tropical Leaf #2

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

There is no hump day here at Uniko HQ as we are back to introduce another product for our mini July Release. Today we have a fun stencil introduction, Tropical Leaf #2.

This is a stunning monstera leaf and comes as a stencil and mask combo for even more possibilities.

So let’s have a look at this stencil in action…

For my first card today I have gone for a one layer card. I used bright cheerful tropical colours and opted to use the mask part of the stencil. The sentiment is from Paradise clear stamp set.

I love the simplicity of this card, but the grand size of the image and colours create impact.

For my second card today I went for a slimline card. This card size I don’t often reach to make, but it lends itself nicely towards these large images.

For this card I used the stencil part and created a layered ombre cascade of monstera leaves. I used white texture paste to add the leaf detail and the sentiment is from Floral Vines.

Just two simple cards from me today, that hopefully show you the impact this large stencil can create.

I know the Brand Ambassadors have some wonderful stencilling techniques and creative ideas to share with you using this stencil & mask, so be sure to hop along all the stops listed over HERE.

WOW! That was creative and inspirational. I am sure you agree. I hope you had chance to leave comments along the way, I will be randomly selecting one lucky from all that are left during the week to win a £20 eGift Certificate to use in the Uniko store.


All of the products being introduced this week will be available at 9am BST Friday 29th July 2022 over HERE on the website.


That’s all for today, be sure to stop by again tomorrow for more!
