Extra Time DT Blog Hop Winner!


Sorry for the delay in posting the winner of the Extra Time stamp set from the DT Blog Hop, things have been busy round these parts as I prepare for the February Release! 

Anyhow, the comments from all the Uniko Studio DT blogs have been collated, counted and popped into a bag and with the help of Mr Cat (who thought there were treats in the bag as it was rattled) a winner was randomly drawn! 

The winner of the Extra Time stamp set is.... Cassie

Jam Packed!


Happy Weekend! This is one jam packed Saturday here at Uniko Studio, firstly I am at The Paper Lane today in Northallerton, UK. Doing a Uniko Studio Clear Stamp Demo morning 10 - 2pm and also a class 2 - 5pm. 

If your out and about near Northallerton pop in & say 'Hello', I'd love to see you :) I'll do my best to remember to take some photo's this time to share with you all here on the blog!

Today, Uniko Studio is sponsoring & Guest Designing for Addicted to CAS you can see my project below and join in with all the fun HERE at the Addicted to CAS blog.

The challenge code word is.... Embossing and so I decided to do some heat embossing on my cards...

On this first card I stamped the solid Gerbera flower from Uniko Studio Pure Florals: Gerbera with Smokey Shadow ink onto Basic Grey CS. I then stamped the Lattice design over the top using VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Crystal EP.

Just look at that sparkle...

For my second card I used the same CS but switched the stamps and EP to White Detail! I started out stamping & embossing the individual chevrons from Uniko Studio Wonderful Washi: Christmas. The label is heat embossed with white detail onto Soft Stone CS, cut out and mounted onto the card using foam adhesive. 

All supplies are listed below! If you join in on the fun over at Addicted to CAS, you could win yourself some Uniko Studio goodies!

Along with all that I am super excited as this Paper Crafts magazine is out today...

Why, am I excited about this particular magazine? Well, Uniko Studio's TIME clear stamp is featured in this magazine and I can't wait to get my copy in the mail to see it!!

That's enough excitement for one day! If you missed the Design Team Blog Hop yesterday you can catch up on it HERE. There's a chance to win a Uniko Studio Extra Time stamp set so you might just want to check it out!

Design Team Blog Hop!

Hey All!

Welcome to the first Uniko Studio Design Team Blog Hop of 2013. With it being a New Year and nearly Uniko Studio's second year in business I decided to make a few changes and devise a plan, regular blog hops are part of that plan! 

I could be generalising but if you're a crafter like me you have to have the latest crafting item whether it be stamps, dies, patterned paper, gadget etc... Throughout the year you spend on your hobby and have a lovely array of stash use items a couple of times before your onto the next stamp, die etc and those previously bought items sit in boxes in your nicely organised crafting space until you have a specific project in mind. 

So, I get to my point... I set the Uniko Studio Design Team a challenge to dust of their Extra Time stamps and put them to use on a project or two...

Today Tomorrow & Always Extra Time £15.95 
Copyright Uniko Studio  2012-13

Extra Time was one of the Uniko Studio debuting stamp sets back in February 2012, it has a fun clocking in card which measures 6.4 x 9cm, a selection of clock faces which coordinate with a 1 3/4" circle punch, separate clock hands to stamp your own time on the clock faces and a abundance of sentiments! Use this set on it's own or pair it with TIME for even more possibilities!

This set is perfect for making cards for the men in your life and more. I joined in on the challenge, dusted my Extra Time set off to create this card...

Here's a couple of cards I've made previously using this set...

The next blog in the hop is the talented Aimes, if you find a broken link in the hop below is a hop list...

Aimes (On Leave)

Fancy having this set in your stash? Just leave a comment on this blog by Monday 14th Jan 2013 and I will randomly select a winner. Don't worry if you already own the set & you comment & win I will provide and alternative prize! 

Ok, I'm hopping along to Aimes' blog HERE to see what magic she has whipped up using this set! Thanks for stopping by.
