Introducing... Explosion! Collection Designer Dies


Welcome to day 7 and the last of the May 2018 Release product introductions. That means tomorrow IS Release Day - Whoohoo!

Anyway, I am super excited about today as the product we are introducing is some NEW matching Designer Dies to previously released and popular Uniko clear stamp sets. As I mentioned yesterday too, I love matching dies, they provide so many more techniques and ways to stretch your stamps.

Being a very small business, the cost of adding new dies to the inventory is huge. They are manufactured in the USA and like most imports there is added costs to receiving these. Anyway, I feel Uniko has grown a little over the past few months and with having a stand at Happy Stampers Festival & Stamp Magic I felt the time was right to add more! I do plan on adding more coordinating and stand alone dies more frequently (fingers crossed) in the near future.

OK, so let's see these dies and the clear stamp sets they match...

Hopefully you can see that I have created this designer die collection in a way that it mainly matched the Explosion! Additions clear stamp set. It does feature a die to match the explosion stamp in the original Explosion! set, but as you will see from one of my samples today, you don't need to use the stamps with the explosions! 

So many fun possibilities with these dies and clear stamp set now ;) And again, one of my favourite cards to make is shaker cards!

So here's one I made to test the dies out as soon as they landed in the studio...

For my shaker card I used the largest of the explosion dies, which coordinates with the halftone explosion from Explosion! Additions. Inside the shaker I added some tiny die cut explosions and lots of sparkly stars from Little Things By Lucy :)

Having the dies to cut out the large BAM! and WOW! make things so much quicker and easy ;) I added some colour enamel stars to compliment the colours of the card and accentuate the explosion.

That's all I have to share here, but there is plenty of inspiration from our Design Team.
