Card One

Tape your piece of neenah cardstock to your stencil. Then starting with the Abandoned Coral blend the top of your rectangles, then on to Spiced Marmalade, then Mustard Seed, and finally Twisted Citroen.  

Leave this to dry, then rub over with a anti static tool and stamp the beautiful word in Black onyx ink.

Then using clear emboss powder to emboss the word.

At the top of your card front stamp your sentiment. 

Then I added Altenew Enamel Dots in Black. and a thin slither of MFT black and white paper from  Black and White basic's.


Card Two

This time I attached my card front to the stencil but used the stencil in a Horizontal position.  

I blended the ink from lightest to darkest starting with Tattered rose. Once all blended I placed in to my Misti and lined up my sentiments. 



I used an anti static tool to rub over the ink blended card front.



I then stamped in Versa Mark ink,on to each line,With a sentiment and then embossed it in Altenew Copper Embossing powder.

Added some rose gold sequins from Pretty, Pink, Posh.



I mounted the card front to the card blank and this card was finished.


Card Three

This example was made exactly the same as the other cards using a blue ink combination and using the stencil vertically.



I then, while the stencil was in place splatted water then white paint.

Added some Nuvo drops in Caribbean Ocean.

And stamped a little Hello from the stamp set and tiny hearts from a random little heart stamp on my desk.


I love using stencils as you can achieve such quick and simple results.

Happy Stamping
