Nautical Circles...


We're back and ready for Day 4 of the Uniko Studio sneaky peeks of the April release. Remember: new products will be available to purchase from April 11th! :)

Today some of the Uniko Studio DT are giving a sneaky peek of two new products: a fab stamp set called, 'Round in Circles' and a coordinating digital paper pack also called, 'Round in Circles'. Both features lots of cool, graphic circles/borders and that will compliment all styles of cardmaking!

For my project today, I've played with the stamp set. You'll be spoilt for choice over which stamp to ink up first, but I decided to jump on the nautical bandwagon and play with the striped circle along with navy ink. I then die cut a letter out of each circle, and then used some scraps from my Day 2 project (From the new On the Grid Digital Paper Collection) for the apertures. I then recycled even more scraps using the coral scraps for a heart embellishment, (created using a paper punch and covering it in Glossy Accents) and added a strip down the side of the card to balance the design.

tips and tricks
  • When stamping a row of circles (or any other shape!) start with the central part first to ensure your design stays central and fits!
  • Die cut each letter individually as the dies can slip you run them through your die cutting machine. It's much easier to keep an eye on one than three dies! If you find they wiggle too much, simply secure on the project using a Post-It note.
Now be sure to see what amazing creations some of the Uniko Studio DT have whipped up with this fun new set and digital paper collection.
