Re-introducing Nautical Treasures AND Introducing... Background Blocks Nautical Stripes, Fleur De Lis & Anchors stencils

Hello and welcome.
Today sees the first of the introducing posts for this month's Uniko release.
Today we are going all nautical!

This card uses the Anchor stencil and the Nautical Treasures stamp set.
I created the background by inking through the stencil with Versamark onto royal blue card and embossing with a clear semi dull EP.
My life belt was simple to make, just a ring of white card cut with two stacking dies and a bit of red Copic colouring and string added to the back!
My banner was stamped in matching blue using the sentiment from Nautical Treasures.

My second card uses the Fleur de Lis stencil and Background Blocks Nautical Stripes.

The stencil was used with white embossing paste over white card and the block stamp inked in blue across the bottom of my base card.
I trimmed the finished stencilled panel when dry and added some gold mirror across the bottom and a die cut oval sentiment using Outline Sentiments in matching blue ink.

That's all from me for today, but check out what the rest of the team have been inspired to create

We are also joined for this release by the talented Karen Baker .

Julie - that'll be me

  1. Great cards, the colouring on the life belt is brilliant, really dimensional and I actually thought the stencilling was stamping. I really should be more adventurous with the stash that I don't know what to do with!! Hope you are enjoying a fresher day. We had storms here last night and it actually feels quite pleasant so far x

  2. Two great cards Julie ..... love the little life belt, it looks so dimensional xx

  3. Love your idea to create a life belt! And your second card is so stylish, fab use of that stencil!
