Featured in Cards & Crafts for Christmas

Hey!

Happy Weekend & HAPPY long Bank Holiday weekend to all in the UK, you’ve got to love an extra day to the weekend!

Today I am back to share a little more about the Uniko feature in Cards & Crafts for Christmas, which I shared on social media on Friday.

I am always truly honoured to be approached by editors to design digital stamps and have my cards featured. I also love sharing things for free, which brings me on to the feature in Cards & Crafts for Christmas….

I also LOVE snowflakes, glitter and sparkle, so when I received the brief my heart skipped a beat and these are the snowflake digital stamps I came up with and a snippet of the feature from the magazine…

The digital stamps can be downloaded from www.simplycardsmag.com and the digital stamps in the magazine can be found HERE, you will need to register to be able to download them.

I’d LOVE to see if you use these freebies or any of the free digital stamps I have designed in the past. I have links to some of them HERE.

So if you have made something and blogged about it, email me a link to bev@uniko.co.uk OR if you have posted it on social media, such as Instagram or Facebook, be sure to tag @unikoltd or  use the #unikoltd or #unikostamps and I will be able to find them.

That’s all from me today, but I will be back again soon with more to share! Until then, thanks for stopping by and enjoy the freebies 😉

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 :)

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.

I’ve changed them up a little and I’ve added in a Flamingo friend and a pretty Plumeria flower.

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 😉

January 2018 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Happy Sunday!

It’s time for another Uniko Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY – Whoohoo!! As it is non release month here at Uniko, the Design Team and myself challenge ourselves to dust off and give some fresh inky love to a previously released product. Usually I choose the product and challenge the DT to come up with something new.

This month I gave the DT a BIG task of choosing their favourite product from ALL of the ones released in 2017! That’s a choice from 24 clear stamp sets, 5 stencil designs and 2 designer die collections. That might not sound a lot compared to other companies out there, but that is a HUGE inventory for me and Uniko 😉

Having said that I really had a hard time choosing a product to focus on for todays hop, I love all the products I design and ‘yes’, I often say how one is a particular favourite, maybe because the inspiration using it continues to flow easily?

Anyway, I ‘ummed’ and ‘ahhhd’ for a while and then remembered that Uniko was being featured in a magazine this month! So I searched my emails for the information and whilst doing the weekly food shop, stopped by the magazine section and picked myself up a copy of Quick Cards Made Easy!

Here are a few peeks at the feature…

So, after seeing this it inspired me to dust off Reach For The Stars and make my card for today!

UnikoJan18DTBlogHop1

I was also influenced by THIS card by Design Team Member Carol, who is on the DT for the “Just Us Girls” challenge HERE and prompted me to join in on the fun over there too!

Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 7.07.18 PM

I used a mixture of Distress Oxide inks, Altenew Desert Night and VersaFine Onyx Black inks to create my galaxy/night sky background. The ‘thankful’ sentiment is also from Reach For The Stars and is heat embossed in Cosmic Shimmer Detail White EP.

UnikoJan18DTBlogHop1d

I opted for a ‘thankful’ sentiment so that I could join in on the fun over at Time Out Challenges, with their 100th challenge HERE too AND you can never have too many thank you cards!

thankful

Forever the CASness will remain and I simply opted to adhere the panel to a white card base with foam adhesive. Before which I did ‘bravely’ splatter some water over the panel for a oxide effect!

That’s all I have to share for today, I was hoping to have created more using this set and others, but my creativity is being hampered by day to day running of Uniko and being a mummy to 2 cheeky Beans!!

Anyway, be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win a £15 eGift Certificate to spend in store. You have until Midnight (GMT) Sunday 21st January 2018 to comment.

Happy Hopping!

Uniko Feature In January’s Craft Stamper Magazine!

Hey!

Here at Uniko we are kicking off the Festive Season with a feature in the NEW January issue of Craft Stamper Magazine!

Have you got your copy yet?! The January issue of Craft Stamper magazine went on sale yesterday. I’m still awaiting my copy to come through the post :(  However, I know you won’t be disappointed in the issue or the Uniko feature!

For the feature this time I have teamed up with a couple of the Craft Stamper Designers and we each used Uniko’s Stunning Snowflakes clear stamp set to make a couple of mixed media projects. I’ve already had a peek at one of the Designers projects and it is so fun to see how others think to use the stamps!

Here are a couple of peeks at my projects…

Excited for Septembers Craft Stamper Magazine!

Hey!

I am super duper excited to share some sneaky peeks of some projects the Design Team and I have in a Uniko feature in the September issue of Craft Stamper magazine – whoop!

CS_208 SEP17{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I was beyond thrilled when Trish Latimer the Editor of Craft Stamper emailed me to see if Uniko along with the Design Team would be interested in making some projects for a feature in the magazine. As you can see, I did and my Design Team have been amazing and created SO many mixed media projects using Uniko products, that they couldn’t fit them all in the magazine feature! Fear not the extra ones will be on their blog 😉

Subscribers to the magazine will have probably received their copy through the mail by now, but those who want to grab a copy they will go on sale on Friday 4th August. I’ve attached some info as to how to purchase a copy online or get a subscription at the end of the post.

Anyway, how about a few sneaky peek photos at a few of the projects featured…

These first two photos are of projects I created. I had a little bit of a theme going and I was also inspired by the current trend of pairing florals with geometrics. Can you spot my signature colour combo too?!

Jane Taylor

This beautiful blue and turquoise card is by Jane, again bang on trend with pairing geometrics, this time with the butterfly from English Country Garden Butterflies.

Lindsey Bowe2

This project peek is one of Lindsey’s. Just look at the layering of stamped images and pretty colours. Can you name some of the sets Lindsey has used on the background?! If you can, tell me in the comments and I’ll pick a winner to receive one of the sets featured 😉

Next is another pretty English Country Garden Butterfly project, this time by Rahmat…

Rahmat Gouse

Another beautiful pairing of the butterfly, this time with Pure Florals: Lily. Such pretty shades of pink, beautiful ink splatters and shiny sequins :)

There is a bit of a trend appearing, with another project featuring English Country Garden Butterflies. A firm favourite among the DT 😉 This is one of the projects by Sarah G. I love how Sarah has used the sentiment from the set in the background and the blues, turquoise and greens. Such fresh and happy colours.

Sarah Gray

Lastly, but by no means least is this fabulous sneak peek by Sarah P…

Sarah Platt

Another firm favourite of the myself and the DT is Originally Organic. It also seems pretty popular in store as again it is sold out! I will be getting a restock of this set along with others in the next couple of weeks 😉

I hope you have enjoyed this sneaky peek post and are now itching to get your hands on the magazine?! You definitely want to get a copy either physical or digital as there is a giveaway of some kind in the magazine, where you can win some Uniko clear stamps!

Here’s some of the places you can get the magazine from August 4th…www.craftstamper.com to buy subscriptions, www.mags-uk.com for single print copies, digital copies from www.pocketmags.co.uk Overseas subscriptions are available too!

That’s all from me today, thanks for stopping by :)
