Guest Designer Inspiration with Anna Uhras

Hi Dear Uniko Friends! 

Anna here again today bringing you my last (but not least) page made for my GDT spot here at Uniko. I’ve had a blast playing with all the gorgeous stamps, stencils and dies Bev sent to me to create with.

Thank you so much sweet Bev <3

For this layout I’ve made my own background papers using the Paradise Leaves Clear Stamps.  The word “kindness” you can find in the Simply Said II Clear Stamp set. The papers in my layers under my photo are by Heidi Swapp Pineapple Crush collection and my title is also by Heidi Swapp  but from my hoarded stash :)

I fussy cut some of the leafs and mounted them with 3d tape to get some dimension. Lastly, I finished my page off with some stitches my by sewing machine and some dots of Nuvo Jewel Drops. I do really love these leafs, they are absolutely gorgeous.

I hope that you have got some new ideas and some inspiration from my creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by here today! See you out in the scrappy world​ <3

Take care! Hugs Anna xo

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 :)

PCM

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…

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.

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 😉

When I think of Summer at the moment I instantly think of Tropical beaches, florals and colours. Hence my pairing of I LOVE Tea with Paradise.

I was inspired by the current challenge over at AAA cardsHERE, which is to use the emboss resist technique. I used the outline Hibiscus flower and solid leaves from Paradise clear stamp set, stamping them in VersaMark ink and heat embossing in clear EP. I then applied my favourite distress inks.

The tea cup was stamped with the solid Hibiscus flower and leaves before I fussy cut it out. The sentiment is also from I LOVE Tea and I added some Stampin’ Up! Glitter Enamel Dots to finish the design off :)

A Look Back At 2016!

Hey!

Welcome back to another ‘Look Back At 2016! This year has been an amazing year for myself personally, but it has been a fantastic year for Uniko. We have had 5 fabulous releases, with 16 new clear stamps sets lining the Uniko HQ shelves. 

I don’t know about you, but to me this year has almost passed by in a blur! With that in mind I thought it would be nice now the main seasonal festivities are over and as 2016 draws to a close, to take a look back at Uniko’s 2016.

Today, I am taking a look back at the June 2016 Release and giving some fresh inky love to Paradise  and Paradise Leaves clear stamp sets.

First up a card using Paradise

A super quick and CAS card! I started by stamping the sentiment from the set and used my favourite of the Hibiscus flowers, stamped in Pink Grapefruit. The solid leaves from the set are stamped in Key Lime and the tiny trio of flowers in Persimmon. Hopefully in this next photo you can see the sparkle of the Clear Wink Of Stella I added to the flowers :)

For my Paradise Leaves card I used the same trio of colours, but also added in Turquoise Gem, Aquatic Splash and Sea Breeze.

The sentiment is from Originally Organic and another quick CAS card! It was lovely to play and think of warmer places, it has been SO cold here today and the frost we had overnight hardly lifted.

So, that’s a quick look back at the June 2016 Release, I hope I have given you a little inspiration to dust off these sets if you have them 😉

I hope you will join me again tomorrow, when I will be taking a look back at the 2016 September/October Release. Until then, thank you for stopping by.

Hugs
