August 2018 Reveal, Release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Woohoo!

Finally the day has arrived and the August 2018 Release is NOW available to purchase HERE on the website. We have our traditional Reveal, Release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY! Hopefully you have hoped on over from the start of the hop HERE.

I managed to squeeze in a little more creative time in between admin jobs and created a ‘twofer’ using the new Background Builders: Happy Hexagons clear stamp set…

First up is this funky design!

I used one of the larger single hexagons to create this background. I didn’t use my stamping tool this time, I just eyeballed it and there is no particular sequence, it is totally random. I then used my Stampin’ Up! markers in bright colours to create the stripes.

I trimmed and adhered the panel to some black card before adhering to my white card base. The ‘hello’ sentiment is from BIG & BOLD Hello, stamped, embossed in white & fussy cut out. I really *need* some dies to match these BIG & BOLD sentiments 😉
Next, I went for another brightly stamped masculine design using the hexagons, but with a softer overall feel to the card…

I used my favourite Altenew ink colours to again stamp the larger single hexagons, just by eyeballing it. I layered the panel with some Basic Grey card and added the ‘You Rock’ sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.

The current challenge over at Twofer Card Challenge HERE and seen below is ‘Geometrics’, hence me making a twofer with Background Builders: Happy Hexagons!

Unfortunately, I only had time to finish these two cards :(
I did start making some watercolored cards very late last night, but ran out of energy to finish them, so I will be back tomorrow with those to share :)

March 2018 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey!

It’s time for another Uniko Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY – Whoohoo!! For those of you who are new around these parts I will explain what this post is all about…

Here at Uniko HQ it is just myself behind the screen, blogging, designing, packaging stamps & orders through the Uniko online shop, customer service and all the things in between. I *usually* release new product every other month for a number of reasons, but mainly so I can keep up with everything!
On non – release months like this month I like to set myself and the Design Team a challenge to look back at a previously released product and give it some more love.
Usually I choose just one product that was released the previous year or a once favourite that hasn’t seen much air time. This month with the recent additions to the Design Team, The Stencil Design Team and having released last month a co-ordinating stencil to the previously released Fun Flowers clear stamp set. I thought it would be nice to showcase both the stencil and clear stamp set.

I managed to find a little creative time and mojo and created a ‘twofer’ to share with you! I’ve been wanting to join in on the Twofer Challenge HERE since it first launched, but time hasn’t been on mind side :(

For my first card I used just the Fun Flowers clear stamp set. Reaching for the CAS Colour & Sketches challenge colours HERE, that I still had on my desk! Some simple ‘off stamping’ to create a slightly muted cascade of flowers and embellishing with one of the large Fun Flower possibilities. The sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks.

Next I decided to pair some monochrome Fun Flowers with a colourful stencilled die cut using the coordinating Fun Flowers Stencil and this time the CAS Colour & Sketches challenge colours in Distress Oxide Inks!

I over embellished the flowers with some Altenew and Stampin’ Up! enamel dots, I just can’t resist using them! This time I chose the ‘HAPPY’ sentiment from Simply Said Blocks, which I will then add a sentiment inside such as ‘birthday’, ‘belated birthday’, etc etc.

Ok, so I am entering my ‘twofer’ over HERE and I hope that I have inspired you to join in on that fun challenge and this weeks CAS Colours & Sketches challenge too 😉
