July 2015 Reveal, Release & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & SUPER Happy Weekend!

Today is officially release day here at Uniko Studio and hopefully the three sets lining the shelves here at Uniko HQ will take your fancy!

Now grab a drink & let’s get to the fun and see these new clear stamp sets in full…

Garlands Galore £9.95

This is my simple version of a garland or banner building set, complete with finished banners and mini alphabet. I can see myself reaching for elements in this set time & time again.

Home Sweet Home £4.95

Copyright Uniko Ltd 2015

This set needs little introductions as you can see it is a home themed set! With a simple focal house sized at 6.5 x 6.5cm with a variety of mix and match sentiments.

Lastly but my no means least we have the next floral in the Pure Florals series and the first mini set…

Pure Florals: Cosmos £4.95

Pure Florals: Cosmos, a sweet mini flower building set with some lovely sentiments in a gorgeous modern font mix 🙂 This is a new favourite of mine and you can be sure to see it being used a lot over the coming weeks!!

Now I have done all the formal introductions, how about some projects showcasing these new sets. I wasn’t having a successful creative day yesterday and all my ideas just wouldn’t come out how I wanted them to, so my efforts are lacking compared to those of the DT that you will see!

Anyway, first up is a super CAS card using Pure Florals: Cosmos…

Apologies for my photo too, the sun was so bright yesterday I just couldn’t get a good pic either!!

I started out with a purple piece of CS I think it could be SU! Retired Lavender Lace, I then stamped the Cosmos in VersaMark and heat embossed it with detail white embossing powder. I then used my ‘go to’ Mama Elephant die to die cut the curve and then added a piece of white card to remake the front of the card to the size of the back.

Next I have a card which combines Garlands Galore with Balloon Bash…

I started out by stamping the star garland across my white CS layer, coloured the stars in with At You Spica pens so they have a little sparkle. I stamped the balloon string and added the small bows from Garlands Galore. The balloon is fussy cut out and mounted with foam adhesive and then I finished it off with a sentiment from Pure Florals: Cosmos.

That’s all from me, but as tradition holds we have our release day blog hop, simply visit & comment along the hop by midnight Saturday 18th July, to be in the chance of winning the ENTIRE release! If you have already purchased any or all of the release a refund will be given.

Still TIME to join in at TIME OUT Challenges!

Hey!

Today I am popping by with a reminder that there is still time to join in on the current challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges. This fortnight it is a Home Sweet Home challenge inspired by this photo…

I went down the geometric route again for my card, this time opting for squares. I used a combination of Background Builders: Squared and Classic Alphabet.

The sentiment is a combination of All Occasion Sentiments #2 and Simply Said Birthday. Again I was also inspired by the colours in the photo.

This fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Sue, be sure to stop by Sue’s blog HERE to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team.

For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations 🙂 I’ll be back again later in the week with more to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today.

June 2015 Design Team Blog Hop, GIVEAWAY & NEWS!

Hey!

I’m SO happy you’ve stopped by the blog today as today is the June 2015 Design Team Blog Hop. Along with the hop and giveaway, I am also sharing lots of NEWS!! So be sure to grab a drink, get comfy, relax and enjoy!

As we’ve quite a few new followers here, (“Hello & Thank you”) I will explain what’s going on! Here at Uniko I currently only release new products every other month. This is for a number of reasons, firstly, being an avid paper crafter myself and knowing the current economic climate I know ‘some’ are on a limited budget when it comes to buying new stash, so this way you’re not tempted to splurge too much every month.

The second reason is that it is just me here at Uniko HQ. I currently run this little business single handedly, designing, blogging, demoing, classes, packing. Alongside that I am a full time mum to 9 month old twin boys! So releasing every other month gives me chance to keep my head above water, well…just about!

So, on the in-between release months the Design Team & I take a look back at a previously released product, dust it off and give it some love! This month I decided to dust off the previously released Pure Florals: Gerbera…

 

 

Along with this set being the TOP selling product here at Uniko 😉 I thought it would be nice for some lovely Summer floral cards (though this is the kind of flower that can be used all year round too.

Here are a couple of my ‘old faves’ using the set…

 

 

Unfortunately I haven’t had time to create a new project due to reasons below, but I know the DT will make up for my tardiness!

Before I get to the Design Team Blog Hop, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the newest member of the Design Team. I am super honoured and happy to introduce you to…

Jane Taylor from Purplejet Loves Crafts
