Happy Weekend!

Today I am super excited to share another feature and Uniko FREE Digital Stamp Download Collection in the NEW issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine, which is now on sale.

This FREE collection of digital stamps features a large Block Party style stamp and two sentiment stamps. They can be downloaded from the Simply Cards & Papercraft website HERE.

The photo above shows a variety of ways the digital stamps can be used and in the magazine I share some Top Tips of using digital stamps 😉

I thought I would make one more card to share with you here using the main Block Party Coffee stamp and one of the sentiments.

When I saw the current two week sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below, I knew it was perfect to use with these digital stamps!

I use Photoshop when using digital stamps and I always create a document the size of the card I am going to make. My standard size card is 10.5 x 14 cm. I started by placing the ‘Sending You a LATTE Birthday Wishes’ sentiment and copying & pasting it to create a fun border style background as seen in the sketch. This was then printed, cut to size and coloured with Copic Markers.

With using Photoshop, digital stamps are easy to scale up or down to suit your need & use of them. Here I have scaled the Block Party Coffee stamp down to a small rectangle. Again I have coloured with Copic Markers, trimmed to size & layered with some black card before adhering to the card base using foam adhesive.

I hope that you download and enjoy using the FREE digital stamps I have designed. If you use them and share your makes on Social Media, be sure to #unikoltd on your post, so that I can find them easy!

Featured In… Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine!

Woohoo!

I’m super excited to pop by this evening & tell you about another little feature I have in a magazine. This time it is with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine and I have designed some FREE downloadable digital stamps for you to use 🙂

Can you spot a trio of the cards on the lower right of the front cover?!

One trends that is still going strong in the papercraft industry (and others) is the Tropical theme. Currently the focus of the trend is more on the leaves & foliage rather than the tropical blooms. So, I used this, along with my previously released Tropical themed clear stamp sets, Paradise, Paradise Humming Bird & Paradise Leaves to create some digital stamps.

Here is a look at the collection of stamps available for download from Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine website HERE.

And here are a couple of the cards I have made using the digital stamps which are featured in the magazine…

On this first card I have used just the FREE digital stamps. I enlarged the background stamp to fill a panel of white card & used my Copic Markers to colour the leaves in. The sentiment is then sized to layer across the background on a separately printed panel & I added some foam adhesive for dimension.

For this second card I used the large tropical leaf background again, but this time I erased the top section of the background. I’ve then added Bob the Toucan from Paradise clear stamps & a Father’s Day sentiment from Simply Said clear stamps.

For all the details & more samples using the FREE digital stamps, be sure to grab yourself a copy of the magazine from the Simply Cards & Papercrafts website or in the UK most leading supermarkets, Hobbycraft & WH Smith stock the magazine.

Please note that these digital stamps are only available to download HERE from Simply Cards & Papercrafts website. They are not available for download from Uniko. 

Enjoy & thanks for stopping by!

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 😉
