Uniko New Release Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway

Good morning!

Happy Sunday to you.
Well the wait is over ..... today's the day!!!  It's Release Day for the brand new products from Uniko.
And to celebrate, we're having a New Release Design Team Blog Hop & Giveway ...... yeah!!

To be in with a chance of winning the ENTIRE NEW RELEASE (thats 4 stamp sets, 2 die sets and 1 stencil) all you have to do is hop on through the Blog Hop and visit all the DT Blogs.  Leave comments along the way and that's it ...... easy!
You can find a full list at the end of this post or check out the Uniko Blog for more details.

Grab a cuppa and lets have a closer look at the new products.

There's four great new stamp sets ......

Two additions to the Background Blocks range ..... Mid Century Modern I and II

Use them with your favourite coloured inks to create funky backgrounds for your die cuts perhaps  ....

I've stamped the MCM II twice onto white card using Distress Oxide ink

Added a simpe white die cut ..... layered for added dimension

And finished off with a touch of glitter and the rest of the sentiment stamped.

There's the beautiful large background ......  Sketched Foliage

A pretty design you can use on it's own, or team it up with more from your Uniko stash ....

I've heat embossed in gold, over an inky background ......

and I added pretty little butterflies using one of the new release dies

One of my favourites next ...... Mid Century Modern Florals

This is a great set, with so many possibilities.

Create your own floral designs ....... all those possible colour combinations!!
I've gone for a nice summery look here ......

With a simple sentiment ......

And the little butterfly is made up from the two double leaf stamps from the set.

Next up, we have a new stencil design ..... Mid Century Modern

A great design for all those masculine cards ..... but, perfect for something a little more girly too

It looks so pretty in pink, especially with the added sparkle.

Another of those new die sets adds the sentiment .....

Speaking of the dies ..... there's the Englih Country Garden Butterflies ......

When used alongside the matching stamp set they're perfect for creating a floating frame card (I think that's what everyone's calling them!)

This technique seems to be everywhere at the moment ....... and it's so much fun to do.  You get two cards out of one ..... the outer frame

and the middle bit. 

Check back on the Uniko Blog later this month and I'll share with you how I made these. 

Last but definitely not least .... the BIG & BOLD Wish Die set

You've already seen the Wish word and shadow die  ..... here's the cute candle dies in action

I used the stamp set for the sentiment ........

And stamped the candles and then die cut them ......

Think how useful these are going to be!

I do hope you like the new release.   All the products will be available on the Uniko website from 9pm this evening (BST) ...... just check out the New Arrivals section.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
