Uniko - Introducing Spring Botanicals Tulip

Hello again and once again welcome to the latest introductory post for the new goodies, being released by Uniko this month. They will all be available to purchase from the store on Sunday, 23rd February 2020. 



Today, the Team and I are showcasing the latest set in the Spring Botanicals range - this time with tulips! Let's hope these beautiful flowers start popping up in our gardens soon too. It was my Mum's birthday yesterday so this set worked a treat for her card, especially as tulips are one of her favourite blooms. It was also another opportunity to feature the fantastic outlined alphabet set that we introduced on Tuesday.


I also made a matching gift tag for mum's gift too!



Last one for this post using some Easter sentiments, included in the set along with a stencilled background using Uniko's Lattice stencil.




Tomorrow is the final day of our introductions to the new goodies before the BIG REVEAL, RELEASE & GIVEAWAY on Sunday. The release schedule, can be found over on the Uniko blog HERE as well as links and peeks at how my fellow teamies have worked their magic!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll be back for more introductions tomorrow.

Hi there crafty friends - I hope you are well.

So we've been teasing you with an upcoming Uniko release for the last few weeks alongside the 8th birthday posts and today we are finally able to share the 'official' sneaky peek images. 

This month there are 7 new clear stamp sets plus a set of Designer Dies to match a previously released clear stamp set.  All the new products will be available to purchase on Sunday 23rd February 9pm GMT. 

Okay, here goes with the all important images for you .... and first up it's another 'outline sentiment' style set but comprising the whole Alphabet and Number range!





There's also 2 new Background Blocks to add to the ever expanding collection of these versatile stamps; firstly in an Art Deco style and another Pinstripe idea.


 


Next up another Background Builder set, this time with an Art Deco style and keeping with the '1920's' Art Deco theme there's also a sentiment set too! 



With Spring fast approaching, although you'd never know it, after the stormy, wet and windy weekend we've just had in the UK, but why not cheer ourselves up with another Spring Botanicals set - this time tulips!



Lastly, there's another silhouette foliage design, similar to the previously released 'Just Because'




Here's the Designer Die set being released this month, to coordinate with 'Kindness Blooms'





That's all for the Sneaky Peeks but I do hope you'll stop by over the next few days as we'll be introducing the new goodies in the build up to the BIG release on Sunday!

Uniko - Challenge #57


Hi there, I'm back with a little reminder about our current challenge over at Uniko where it's an 'Anything Goes' theme with the option to use COOL WINTER COLOURS.

Here's our Cue Card which we'd love to see you include in your post and you could use the image as a guide to your colour scheme.


I went more towards those blue tones using Zig clear brush pens and water to create my background followed by some embossed images and sentiments from the Reach for the Stars stamp set by Uniko.


As always there's plenty of fantastic creations by my fellow teamies, so why not head over to the Uniko blog HERE to check out the links and pay them a visit! I'm sure they'd appreciate it!


Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the wonderfully talented Trina of Phamtastic Design who is one of our previous Uniko Challenge winners. Do pop along and visit her blog and leave a friendly word and some love.

You have until midnight (GMT) on Friday 21st February to link up to the challenge and all the details you need about prizes and how to play can be found over at Uniko HERE

Uniko Release IN REVIEW - Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY

Hi there and thanks for visiting me again today!
The January release at Uniko was a little different to normal in that the Design Team only had one stamp set each to work with BUT all that has changed and we are now able to REVIEW the whole bundle!!!! 

Here's a couple of examples I've made to showcase the sets and I hope you like them. The release has already been on sale for a week or so and it's a great bundle for those Valentines, Anniversaries and Weddings in particular!

First up ... A trio of cards using a combination of the new sets: Background Block: Scattered Hearts, alongside the BIG & BOLD Love set with a sentiment, on the last one, from 'YOU ARE ... Sentiments Outlined'  


... Not exactly your traditional Valentine colours but I can't resist rainbow colours!



Still not those traditional Valentine colours but slightly less 'BOLD' than the first one!!



... and just because I rather liked this colour combo!




Next up using the Hello Lovely stamp and sentiments! What a delightful bouquet of blooms and it's great coloured or simply stamp the outline as I've done on the next card. This one is a bit of both with a 'popped up' coloured section, using Polychromos and a strip of patterned paper and self-adhesive pearls to accessorise.


Last one for today ... another example using sentiments from BIG & BOLD - LOVE; this time teamed with the Hello Lovely bouquet. I stamped the bouquet twice at both ends of the panel then coloured some cardstock with Promarkers to create my sentiment panel, with matching strips down the side. 


Although this review is a little later than the original release date, there's still the traditional BIG Reveal, Release and Blog Hop GIVEAWAY to look forward too!

So here's the list you need and all the details including prizes, are over on the Uniko blog HERE if you get lost along the way just head back there.



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like what you've seen these last few days and here's the FULL images of the sets we've been showcasing!
