Today's the day .......... Release Day for the BRAND NEW Uniko stamps and stencils

Happy Tuesday ......

Yeah!! it's here ........ brand new Uniko Release Day .......  whoo hoo!!!!

I hope you've enjoyed the last few days when we've been introducing the four BRAND NEW stamp sets, along with two re-released ones, and the three BRAND NEW stencil designs. 
Well today, it's time for the New Release Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY.

Join in the fun with Bev and the Design Team and hop along with us.  There's an amazing prize up for grabs so don't forget to comment along the way.  You could win the entire new release .... yes all of it!  You have until midnight(GMT) on 9th November to play along, so plenty of time.

Here's a few more ideas for you using some of the new stamps and stencils .........

BIG & BOLD Merry stamp set with the Folk Snowflake stencil ........

Perfect Pearls Mist sprayed through the stencil onto black card.  The result was this gorgeous, shimmery background

The sentiment was then stamped over the top and heat embossed .... looks great!
The holly leaves are from the Uniko Winter Foliage set, stamped in Peeled Paint Distress Oxide and fussy cut.

Because my piece of black card was bigger than the stencil, I ended up with a border top and bottom of the design.  Instead of cutting it off, the piece fit perfectly on a DL card ..... I just needed to trim the sides away.  I added the decorative borders just to hide the rough edges ..... looks cute though I think!

BIG & BOLD Merry again, this time with the gorgeous Sweet Broom ......

A lovely layering stamp and looks so pretty whatever colours you use.  I've gone with gold embossing then added the detail to the leaves using a pretty pink metallic ink

The Quilted stencil next, along with the Santa from one of the re-released sets .... Jolly Christmas.  And not forgetting the new Simply Said Block - Christmas

I used two colours of ink with the stencil, first the green shade, then I moved the stencil to fill the empty squares and stenciled with red ink

One of the Background Builders next, the new Christmas 2018 set.  These are great for making quick and easy, fun designs

The sentiment is from the Uniko All Occasions Sentiments #4 ..... love this font!

Last up from me today is the Scandinavian Christmas stencil .....

I've used part of the design to decorate my Christmas tree.

Stencil paste with glitter on the top ......  and a snippet of card to make the base.

Well I hope you're feeling inspired, and that you love the new release as much as we, the Design Team do.

All the new stamps and stencils will be available on the Uniko website from 9pm this evening.  You'll have to hang on to your shopping lists for just a little while longer, but the good news is there's a 24hr FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING offer on all orders of £15 or over starting from 9pm this evening (Tuesday)  through until 9pm on October 31st.

Don't forget we're celebrating the new release with a Blog Hop and Giveaway.  All you have to do is leave comments as you visit each blog, and you could win the entire new release.
Happy hopping!
Linda (that's me!)

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm off up to Ramsey this morning with Lauren and the little man.  My favourite shops are up there so this could be an expensive trip! No doubt it will cost me lunch too.

Cheerio until next time .......
