November 2016 Reveal, Release & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Welcome to the Uniko November 2016 Reveal, Release & GIVEAWAY!

As we’ve quite a few new followers here, (“Hello & Thank you”) I will explain what’s going on! Here at Uniko I *USUALLY* 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 2 year old twin boys. So releasing every other month gives me chance to keep my head above water, well…just about! However, with having a break over the Summer with releases I wanted to squeeze one last release in before the end of the year!

So I am back today, with the help of the awesome design team to introduce you to the three clear stamp sets available to purchase HERE now!

If you missed any of the product introductions, you can catch up HERE and HERE.

Let’s have a look at the three clear stamp sets…

First up is Christmas Pop, this is a FUN geometric styled Christmas Tree building stamp set. Along with the obvious Christmas theme it is also suitable for other occasions and stylised creations.

Next we have a mini Christmas Sentiment clear stamp set called Most Wonderful. This set contains two full mixed font sentiments and then a multitude of mix font sentiment building stamps.

Lastly but by no means least we have a fun addition to the ‘Rustic’ collection! This fun mini set has so many possibilities on its own, but pair it with sentiments and images from Rustic Christmas and Background Builders: Vines and Vines Winter Additions for even MORE possibilities!

Now I have done all the formal introductions, how about some more cards using these sets to inspire you…

First up I have used Christmas Pop in a non Christmas way. This set contains some fun geometric triangles and I couldn’t resit using them to create a funky background for a birthday card.

I used two of the triangles to create my BG and then I coloured sections of the decreasing triangle one using my Stampin’ Up! bright marker collection. I then stamped a sentiment from Simply Said Birthday onto a banner die cut (Project Life) and adhered it to the card using foam adhesive.

Next I decided to go Christmassy, I really need to build up my stash of Christmas cards ready to send out 😉 This time I opted for a reasonably quick CAS card using the outline tree and some Papertrey Ink Bitty Dot Designer Paper.

After fussy cutting the Christmas Trees, which too the longest! I stacked/layered them one on top of the other leaving a small border to create taller elongated tree. The sentiment is from Most Wonderful and I finished the card off with a few sparkly star embellishments.

My last card for today uses Rustic Wreath. This time I used the wreath to make a garland along the edge of my card. I embellished the garland with a couple of the smaller stamps from the set to fill it out and add interest.

I then stamped the ‘deck the halls’ sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink, to tie in with the berry sprig stamped in the garland. To finish the card off I stamped a cluster of the smaller images from the set to embellish the sentiment as it needed a little something to balance the card out.

Introducing…Rustic Wreath

YAY!

I’m SO happy that you have come back today, as here at Uniko preparations for the November product release are well underway. We have had all the sneak peeks at the 3 clear stamp sets being released and yesterday HERE the Design Team and I introduced the first two clear stamp sets.

So, without further ado lets get to introducing the last of the products being released! Today we are introducing you to the last clear stamp set being released called Rustic Wreath.

This set is a follow on set to Rustic Christmas, but it also coordinates with images from Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions and Winter Foliage.

For my first card I was inspired by the current challenge over at Fusion Card Challenge HERE and seen below. I was mainly inspired by the sketch, but I interpreted the little wreath in the photo too, adding a layered sprig created from 4 of the tiny stamps contained in the set.

Apart from the little bit of fussy cutting, this was a super quick card to make, another to add to the ‘last minute’ makes if I run out of Christmas cards last minute!

Next I have two more super duper quick CAS cards…

IntroRusticWreath2

{Click Photo to Enlarge}

This first card uses a layout I have used before, which lends itself to an all over stamped pattern. As it is just a small section of the card that is decorated it still has a CAS look to it. All the stamps I have used are from Rustic Wreath.

IntroRusticWreath2a

This second card literally took 5 minutes to make and is a one layer card. This time I have combined the sentiment from Rustic Wreath with a combination of stamps from Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions.

Again, I clustered the images, starting with the trio of Poinsettias and the small area is quite busy but as there is still LOADS of white space the card remains CAS.

Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas

Hey!

This week I am continuing with Rustic Christmas as my SOTW, I hope you have enjoyed the cards I have shared so far? I thought I might run out of ideas, but luckily my creative mojo has reappeared and the ideas are flowing!

RusticChristmasPP

Today I have a colourful rainbow Christmas card to share. There is nothing like a rainbow of colour to cheer up a frustrating night of silly little problems!

2016SOTW95{click photo for a closer look}

For my card I simply stamped the rustic tree in a variety of bright Stampin’ Up! inks! I then added a white heat embossed sentiment on strip of black card, adhered using foam adhesive and a trio of Stampin’ Up! enamel dots to finish the card off. Super quick again and an easily mass produceable card!

Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas

Hey!

Welcome back, this week I have chosen Rustic Christmas as my SOTW…

RusticChristmasPP

Today I have gone for a more rustic feel to my card, seeing as that is in the title of this clear stamp set 😉 I was having a look through some of my recent Stampin’ Up! stash and found this lovely kraft CS panel with a clear embossed woodgrain effect…

2016SOTW93

The tree is stamped in Old Olive with a little accent red Robin. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink and I added some linen thread & bow from my stash and a cream heart embellishment.

Stamp Of The Week – Rustic Christmas

Hey!

Welcome back and welcome back Stamp Of The Week (SOTW). I took a little hiatus with this feature as I prepared for the recent Uniko clear stamp set release and the recent Happy Stampers Festival. But I am back today with a new chosen clear stamp set to give some fresh inky love to!

This week I have chosen Rustic Christmas

RusticChristmasPP

I’ve a couple of reasons for my choice this week, firstly this set has not long arrived back in stock and secondly I ‘really’ need to make a conscious effort to start on my Christmas cards so I am not in a huge rush with only a few days to go!

Anyway, onto my card for today…

2016SOTW90

{click photo for a closer view}

This fun little clear stamp set comes with some dinky baubles and often I forget to give these little accent stamps the love they deserve!

When I saw the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! HERE and seen below, I thought it would be fun to create a row of colourful, sparkly baubles. I also used the colour inspiration from the Fusion Card Challenge seen HERE and below.

New Banner-018

I ‘tried’ to recreate the wonky stacked effect of the chairs in the photo too. I’m not sure I quite achieved that, but overall I am happy with the result. The sentiment is also from the set and it is in one of my favourite modern fonts.

2016SOTW90a

{click photo for a closer view}

I decided to keep this card ‘very’ mail friendly and simply adhered it to my card base using double sided tape. I added a little bit of clear Wink Of Stella to the baubles for that Christmas Sparkle and left it as that!

That’s all I have to share today, I will be back tomorrow with more using this set. Don’t forget that the set is discounted HERE for this week only.

Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by :)
