Introducing… English Country Garden Butterflies Designer Dies & Large Background Sketched Foliage

Hey!

Welcome to Day 2 of the April / May 2019 Release product introductions. If you missed Day 1, you can catch up HERE, it is one not to be missed ūüėČ

Today we are introducing English Country Garden Designer Dies & Large Background Sketched Foliage Clear Stamp. Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the start of todays introduction blog hop. I have shared a little bit about todays designs and where my inspiration for them came from.

Here is a look at todays products in action…

AprilSR3

First up is English Country Garden Butterflies Designer Dies. This set of coordinating dies have been on my wish list forever! Usually my first make with coordinating dies would be a shaker card, but I resisted the urge and kept my card clean and simple and used the largest butterfly die to create a raised die cut aperture!

Next I have a card using the Large Background Sketched Foliage…

I wanted to have a little fun with this background stamp as it has a little more detail than the other 2 large background stamps I have in the Uniko line up. I’ve not long had the Avery Elle Focal Point Stripes Die and I thought it would be fun to use it as a focal point of this card to create a fun two tone green spotlighted image.

It looks complicated, but it is really quite a simple card to make & you can actually make 2 cards from the effort of one quite easily too! I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the background in 2 shades of green Altenew Ink (I used Fresh Leaf & Lime) onto panels of white card trimmed to the same size.

Then I simply die cut the Avery Elle Focal Point Stripes from the lighter (Lime) panel and adhered it to the darker panel using foam adhesive, making sure that the design matched up nicely. I then adhered it to my card base & stamped a sentiment from Simply Said.

That’s all I have to share with you today using these new products, but I will have more on release day. I know my awesome Guest Designer and Design Team have lots of inspiration to share with you, so be sure to hop on by to each of them…

September 2018 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey!

It’s time for another Uniko Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY – Whoohoo!! Apologies for my lateness in posting, I simply ran out of time before vacation to prep and didn’t have the energy on a night whilst away to work!

¬†Anyway, this month I couldn’t decide on the product and as a team we randomly selected a stamp set and then I went a little polka crazy and added in some popular sentiment sets too…

Large Background Scattered Polka Dots

Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts

Simply Said Blocks

Simply Said Blocks II

Stencil Scattered Polka Dots

These clear stamp sets and stencils are perfect for all sorts of backgrounds for all sorts of occasions that the Design Team will show you. They are a perfect addition to anyones crafting arsenal!

Here is what I decided to make…

I was inspired to use the Large Background Scattered Polka Dots and Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts to create a couple of cards to look like wrapped presents.

UnikoSeptRV1

I started with the Large Background Scattered Polka Dots, stamping it in VersaMark ink and embossing in white onto my favourite Coastal Cabana card stock. I then wrapped white bakers twine around as you would with string around a present and secured it in a bow. I’ve then mounted the panel to a matching card base using foam adhesive. The sentiment from Simply Said Blocks II is stamped onto a Pretty Pink Posh die cut tag and adhered to the card.

UnikoSeptRV1a

I used the same design process for my next card using the Large Background Scattered Polka Hearts, but this time I changed the orientation to portrait.

UnikoSeptRV2

This time I stamped the polka hearts in Altenew Coral Berry ink and again the sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks II.

That’s all from me, but let’s see how the design team have been inspired to use the products and be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win¬†a Uniko ¬£20 eGift Certificate.¬†You have until Midnight (GMT)¬†until midnight BST Saturday 22nd Sept 2018 to comment.

May 2018 Release Sneak Peeks Day 2

Welcome Back!

Yesterday saw the start of the countdown to May 2018 Release! It is also countdown to Happy Stampers Festival and May is my birthday month, so I am going to be having a few giveaways around Social Media to celebrate!

Today I am sharing a couple more sneak peeks at the new products being released on the 12th May…

Who doesn’t love a silhouette and a floral one? Silhouettes have been around in the paper crafting and stamping world, probably from the get go! However, there seems to be a revival of this trend and I thought I’d put a little of my style out there too ūüėČ

Next, I have a fun new background sneak peek.

That’s all the sneak peeks that I have to share with you all today! I do hope you have enjoyed the peeks and I’d love to know what you like the look of so far :)

Hugs

Introducing… Spring Botanicals Snowdrop & Large Background Scattered Polka Dots

Hey!

Apologies for my lateness today and the poor photos, (I will update them in the morning!)

I was feeling poorly last night, heading to bed straight after the beans and currently my Tuesday & Wednesday schedules are all to pot at the moment. We are trialling The Beans on their own at nursery for a day each a week, that means I don’t get any free time during the day! As much as I love my Bean free time, it is also nice to spend time with each of them individually. Hopefully this will improve their choice to not talking ūüėČ

Anyway, countdown to the Uniko December Release is well underway and today we have  the first of the product introductions. This is the exciting bit where you get to see the sneak peeks in action!

Today myself and my awesome Design Team  are introducing a couple of clear stamp sets, first up is Spring Botanicals Snowdrop. This is the first spring flower in a mini series of stamps contained in this collection. This clear stamp set contains a beautiful Snowdrop image and some beautiful  quotes and sentiment stamps. The second product we are introducing today came about due to my love of the series of mini Background Blocks that I added to the Uniko clear stamp line up this year. This time I decided to go BIG and enlarge one of my favourite versatile stamps, Scattered Polka Dots!
If you missed the start of the Design Team blog hop & the first 2 cards I have made using these stamps, hop on over HERE.
For my card to share here, I decided to combine both Spring Botanicals Snowdrop & Large Background: Scattered Polka Dots…

IntroSnowdropPolkaDot

I started by stamping the snowdrops in VersaFine Onyx Black ink, creating a mask and then I over stamped the one layer card with the Large Background: Scattered Polka Dots in a trio of Altenew yellow inks to create an ombre effect. When I designed the background stamp, I made sure that it could be moved and lined up to easily stamp a larger background, which is what I did to cover the whole of my base card.

IntroSnowdropPolkaDot1a

After all the stamping I simply coloured the snowdrops with Prismacolor pencils and added a sentiment which is also from Spring Botanicals Snowdrop.

That’s all from me here today, but be sure to hop around the Design Team blogs and leave comments along your way to be in the chance of winning some random prizes!
