Uniko Sponsors CASology!

*Please CLICK HERE for the Uniko Simply Said Introduction & Design Team Blog Hop*


Hey!

I am back again today to let you know that Uniko is proud to be sponsoring the new challenge over at CASology this week HERE - YAY!

This week at CASology the challenge cue word is...




And here is what I came up with...




On my card I have combined the large LOVE from All Occasion Sentiments #5 with the I and You partially stamped from a sentiment in the soon to be released Uniko Simply Said clear stamp set. The trio of hearts are from a combination of the soon to be released Uniko I LOVE Tea, Flower Power #3 and tomorrows product introduction.




Hopefully you can see I have kept my card super CAS and one layer. The colours I have used are from the new Colour Q challenge seen HERE and below.




As the Uniko February Release & Birthday celebrations are in full swing, some of the Uniko Design Team have joined in and combined their introduction creations with the CASology challenge. Be sure to check them out below and stop by their blogs to leave them some LOVE ;)

Introducing... Simply Said

Hey!

 

I am SO happy you have stopped by today, here at Uniko we are in full swing with the February Release & 4th Birthday Celebrations! In case you have missed some of the FUN there is a giveaway HERE and HERE.

Today is the next of the product introductions, the Uniko Design Team and I have whipped up a few projects using todays set to inspire you and give you an idea of the possibilities it has.

As you can see by the title we are introducing a new addition to the Simply Said sentiments range of clear stamps and in case you missed it the other day, here is the sneak peek I shared...


 
 
This set came about due to my lack of a few 'needed' sentiments and is a little different from the previous Simply Said sets, in the fact that they are all in the same font.
 
You have seen a few peeks of some of the sentiments contained in the set over the past few days over HERE on my Stamp Of The Week posts ;) Though I have a couple of cards for you today too...
 
 
 
 
I thought I would use the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge colours again for both my cards, they can be seen HERE and below.
 
 
 
 
This first card is a one layer card which took me less than 10 minutes to whip up. The sentiment is from the soon to be Simply Said clear stamp set and the majority of tiny flowers are from Background Builders: Vines with the exception of the daisy stamp in Pumpkin Pie and tiny heart, they are from the set we are introducing tomorrow ;)
 
 
 
 
I decided to use the same colours for my next card as they were still out on my desk and I had decided on another floral themed card...
 
 
 
 
This time I have done some reverse masking stamping using a Papertrey Ink Mat Stack die. I have also showcased part of a mini freebie stamp set which will be added to all release day orders and orders whilst stocks last.
 
 
 
 
You might recognise the flower, it is from the popular Super FREE Saturday digital collection I did a couple of years ago. I couldn't resist using the mini heart again as it is so cute and the dotty stamps are from Background Builders: Vines and Flower Power #5.
 
Ok, that's all from me today, but now I am passing you over to the fabulous Uniko Design Team to inspire you, please click on the links below to see what they have created and don't forget to leave them some love too ;)

Introducing... I LOVE Tea

Hey!

I am SO happy you have stopped by today, here at Uniko we are in full swing with the February Release & 4th Birthday Celebrations! In case you have missed some of the FUN there is a giveaway HERE and HERE.

Today is the next of the product introductions, the Uniko Design Team, Taheerah a Uniko DT Alumni and I have whipped up a few projects using todays set to inspire you and give you an idea of the possibilities it has.

As you can see by the title we are introducing a new addition to the beverage themed mini stamp sets and this one is for all the tea lovers out there ;)

In case you missed it the other day, here is the sneak peek I shared...




As you can see it is a follow on set from the previously released I LOVE Coffee. The sentiment fonts and style of the sets are similar to create more possibilities.

How about some inspiration...




This wasn't the first card I made using this set, I have it over HERE to share with you instead. The reason being that the wonderful Uniko Design Team and I had thought a like and I didn't want to overload the post with too many similar cards! Great minds think alike and all that ;)




Anyway, back to my card! I used a trio of Copic markers to colour the tea cup in and used the lighter of the trio to add some subtle polka dots. I also added a good layer of Wink Of Stella, you can never have too much sparkle...right?

I then drew a simple frame with a fine liner and ruler and added the sentiment to the lower left. The teacup is mont using foam adhesive for a little dimension.

Ok, that's all from me today, but now I am passing you over to the fabulous Uniko Design Team AND our special guest Taheerah Atchia a Uniko Design Team Alumni to inspire you, please click on the links below to see what they have created and don't forget to leave them some love too ;)

Introducing... Beautiful Blooms III

Hey!


I am SO happy you have stopped by today, here at Uniko we are in full swing with the February Release & 4th Birthday Celebrations! In case you have missed some of the FUN there is a giveaway HERE and HERE.

Today is the start of the product introductions, the Uniko Design Team and I have whipped up a few projects using todays set to inspire you and give you an idea of the possibilities it has.

As you can see by the title of the post, it is a follow on set in the Beautiful Blooms series. Here is the peek I shared the other day in case you missed it...




The peek is a partial look at the bloom fully assembled with all the layers stamped, so with it being a multi step set it has a ton of possibilities.

Here is my first card...




The two blooms combined use all the layers of the flower, and I really liked the contrast of the solid bloom behind with the outline & detailed bloom to the forefront. The leaves use just 2 of the layers, missing out the outline step. The sentiment is another peek at one from another set being introduced later next week ;)




The colour combination I have used was inspired by the current ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below.




For my next card I decided to combine the leaves from Beautiful Blooms III with the flower from Beautiful Blooms II...




I thought I would join in with the celebrations over at "Less is More" this week as they celebrate their 5th Birthday! Congrats LIM :)




This week is a colour week, White on White with a splash of black or metallics and it is a FUN sponsored challenge, including Uniko as a sponsor!! Be sure to check out the fun & join in HERE, there are a few more Uniko February peeks over there too ;)




Ok, that's all from me here today, but I have a little more to share over HERE. Now I am passing you over to the AWESOME Design Team to inspire you, please click on the links below to see what they have created and don't forget to leave them some love too ;)

Today we are continuing the countdown to our 4th Birthday, with a couple more sneak peeks of products being released on the 11th February. The first couple were HERE yesterday, in case you missed them!

First up we have a sneak peek at a new sentiment set...




This mini set is jam-packed full of sentiments for all sorts of occasions. They also pair lovely with so many other Uniko sentiment and image sets for even more possibilities. It's certainly proving to be a 'go to' set for me!


Lastly but by no means least I got my 'cute' on when designing for this next set...




This set has a mixture of interchangeable sentiments in two fun an trendy fonts along with the cute bunny ;) As you can see it would be perfect for Easter, but how about new baby, children's cards or even Valentine's??? 

Ok, that's all the sneak peeks for this release, I will be back again tomorrow with the Uniko DT and a Uniko Alumni to introduce you to the first product - YAY! I do hope I will see you tomorrow?!

2016 February Release Sneak Peeks Day 1

YAY! I'm SO happy that you have stopped by today :)

The countdown to Uniko's 4th Birthday has begun, I can hardly believe that this little company has made it this far! 

It is all down to YOU awesome customers who make my heart happy when you purchase my products and the FABulous Uniko Design Team past & present who have promoted Uniko products. All this combined continues to make my dream of designing stamps, dies and running this business possible. 

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your custom and loyalty over these past 4 years, I truly appreciate each and everyone of you.

Now, how about some MORE sneaky peeks of what's in store for this release. You may have seen a few around social media the past few days already, but here are the 'official' sneak peeks...




This is a peek of a multi step stamping floral set which is a follow on from a very popular series of 'bloom' stamps ;) It contains an array of building opportunities and will sure to be a go to floral set and will pair with SO many other Uniko products.


Next up, is another set in the mini series of beverage themed sets...




This time round it is for all you tea lovers out there! I have kept the style the same as the previously released I LOVE Coffee, for more mix and match possibilities. It even coordinates with the set above, as the bloom was too nice not to appear again ;)

That's all the sneak peeks for today, I will be back again tomorrow with a couple more. I do hope I will see you tomorrow?!

CAS Colours & Sketches #159

Hey!

Welcome back to another fun week & challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. This month our hostess is Stef and this week she has inspired us with another fun colour challenge HERE and seen below.




For once I found the challenge colours easy and was instantly inspired to use Beautiful Blooms II, and paired it with All Occasion Sentiments #3, both of which have recently come back in stock over on the website HERE




Stamping the pink blooms was easy as the colour palette has 2 pinks, but for the orange I had to off stamp my inner bloom detail stamp before stamping onto the card layer. Sometimes this can come out a bit hazy, but I was pleased with the results.




The 'You Are' stamp is a tiny peek at a new clear stamp set being introduced and released next week ;) The stamped layer is trimmed slightly smaller in height to my base card and adhered using foam adhesive.

Anyway, be sure to check out all the FABulous CC&S Design Team inspiration HERE and join in on the fun too. Hope to see you in the gallery :)

Just a little FIY, Uniko has lots of pre birthday and February Release fun with giveaways HERE and HERE! I'd love you to join in too & thanks for stopping by.
