Introducing… Uniko Stencils – In The Forest and Let it Snow

Hey!

Welcome to Day 1 of the December 2018 Release product introductions.

This is the fun part where you get to see the sneak peeks I shared yesterday in action on cards & projects. As December is a super busy time for everyone, it is just me doing the product introductions for this release. Though the Uniko DT will be joining me on Release Day for our traditional blog hop :)
So I have a couple more cards to share using the 2 new stencils…
IntroDec18Stencils2
For this first card I couldn’t resist using the white stencil medium again! I just love the glossy finish it gives and also the subtle dimension to designs.
IntroDec18Stencils2a
I kept the design simple by framing my stencilled panel, adding a little ribbon loop to the edge & a sentiment from the popular Simply Said Blocks Christmas clear stamp set released back in October.
Lastly I have one more card to share using the Let it Snow stencil…
IntroDec18Stencils4
I decided to pair it with another older and popular favourite, BIG & BOLD Snow clear stamps. After inking the stencil with Altenew Ocean Waves & Dusk inks I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the snowflakes & some Simply White Gloss Nuvo Drops, slightly off centre to the dots in the design.
IntroDec18Stencils4a
I used my MISTI tool to stamp the large ‘snow’ sentiment in Desert Night ink and then again in VersaMark ink to heat emboss with Stardust EP. Some therapeutic fussy cutting & my favourite 1mm thick foam adhesive to assemble the card 😉
That’s all I have to share today using these new stencils. I do have a card HERE using them, so be sure to check it out! I will be back tomorrow with another product introduction and lots more inspiration.
As it is the season of giving, each day of the introductions I will be randomly selecting one lucky comment from either this blog post, the Uniko website blog post, Facebook or Instagram to receive an eGift Certificate code to the value of £10! So be sure to leave a lovely comment 😉 Winners will be announced on Tuesday 11th December before the release!

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.

I hope you will join us at 9am tomorrow and I would LOVE to know what you think of the sneak peeks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Introducing… BIG & BOLD Hello and Framed Florals

Hey!

Welcome back to day three of the August 2018 Release product introductions. Thank you for all the lovely comments and support around social media for yesterdays introductions, I do love reading them all :)

Today we are introducing another 2 new clear stamp sets, BIG & BOLD Hello and Framed Florals. Hopefully you have hopped on by from the Uniko Blogspot blog HERE, where I have shared cards using the new stamps.

Here are a couple more I have made. First up, BIG & BOLD Hello…

IntroB&Bhello2

This was another one of the card designs I created for the Uniko Summer Stamping Retreat, however, this is a different colour way from the original as I actually mailed that card out!!

IntroB&Bhello2a

The bold sentiments in the BIG & BOLD series are so fun to create ombre shadow effects like I have on this card. Plus, the beauty of having a stamping tool like the MISTI makes it a breeze! Again, I have used Altenew inks as they really do take the thinking out of matching colours 😉 I’ve used the Sweet Dreams collection on this card.

Next up is a card using Framed Florals…

IntroFflorals2

This time I have used the ‘no line’ colouring technique using Prismacolor Pencils and I was a little unsure as to how it would turn out when I started, but I am rather pleased with the result.

IntroFflorlas2a

I started out by stamping the image onto white card using Altenew Limestone ink. I then simply coloured over the stamped image with my pencils.

The layout of my card is inspired by the current sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below. I had to turn the orientation of my card for the image to fit with the sketch.

Ok, that’s all I have to share with you today using these new sets, but why not grab a cup of your favourite beverage and hop along with myself and the team…?

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed that hop and I am all inspired to get inky! I’d love to know your thoughts on these clear stamp sets and which is your favourite of the two, that is if you can decide?!

That’s all from myself and the Design Team today and all 5 of the new clear stamp sets have been introduced, which means…. TOMORROW is RELEASE DAY!!

Hope to see you then for the full reveal, release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!!

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!

Introducing… BIG & BOLD Hugs and Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts

Today myself and my awesome Design Team  are introducing a couple of clear stamp sets, first up is another addition to the BIG & BOLD series, BIG & BOLD Hugs. The second product we are introducing today came about following the Large Background Scattered Polka Dots, which we introduced on Tuesday. This time I went for hearts, Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts!

IntroHugs2

 

For my first card today I have paired BIG & BOLD Hugs with the previously released Uniko Style flowers in a soft Spring colour palette.
IntroHugs2a
Next up is the Large Background: Scattered Polka Hearts…
LargeBackgroundSPH1
On this card you are getting a BIG preview of the clear stamp set being introduced tomorrow, but they do pair rather nicely together! The Large Background: Scattered Polka Hearts are simply stamped in Altenew Puffy Heart ink and then I die cut the rectangle panel using Lawn Fawn Small Dotted Rectangle dies.
