Introducing... Simply Said Blocks II and Natures Treasures II Stencil & Mask


Welcome to the first day of the May 2018 Release product introductions.

This is the fun part, you now get to see all the sneak peeks in action. The Design Team and our Guest Designer for May Anna have worked their socks off and created an abundance of inspiration to share with you over the coming days :)

Today we are introducing 2 products. Simply Said Blocks II a mini clear stamp set with additional popular sentiments in the same style as Simply Said Blocks. And we are 'officially' introducing Natures Treasures II Stencil. This stencil was part of the Uniko Stamping Retreat goody bag in Dec 2017. It has proven popular with those that attended, myself and some of the DT, that it was time it was made available to everyone :)

Here is a simple card using both of the new products. I simply chose one Distress Oxide Ink (Peeled Paint) to use through my stencil. There are 2 sizes of leaf on the stencil and I chose to use the smallest, which is the same size as the clear stamps from Natures Treasures II, which I have also used on this card.

I've stamped the leaf image from the clear stamp set in Altenew Olive ink, fussy cut it out and adhered it using foam adhesive. The sentiment is one of the new ones from Simply Said II and again, fussy cut out and adhered using foam adhesive. I layered my card with some SU! (Old Olive) card stock and added some enamel dots to finish the design.

That's all I have to share here, but there is plenty of inspiration from our Guest Designer & Design Team...
