Well Hi there Crafty Friends,

Today see's me using three techniques, with one stencil.

Card Two (Using a Embossing Medium)



 Card Three(Highlighted)



Card One


Peace, Love and Joy Stencil from My Favorite Things

Masking Paper 

Large Circle Die

Distress Oxide (Salty Ocean)

Blending Brush

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad 

Alcohol Markers

Silver Embossing Powder

Strip of Vellum

6 x 6 Inch Card Blank

White Pom Pom (optional)



Take a large circle mask or make your own using a circle die and masking paper.

Place it over a 6" x 6" card blank.

Place the MFT stencil over the top and use purple tape to hold in place.

Using a blender brush and salty ocean distress, blend a nice amount of ink on to the stencil. Remove the stencil and leaving the circle mask in place lightly blend again to add a hue of colour, this helps defined the circle on your card.

Next stamp out your penguin, in memento ink, any alcohol safe ink will do. Colour in using your alcohol markers.

Remove mask and place penguin image.

Stamp and embossing on to vellum your sentiment using silver embossing powder.

Cut vellum in to thin strip and place across card.

Pop in your pom pom with liquid glue.

Using a  re positional tape. I use purple tape from themoweb, which Katrina stock's at Bumbleberrys.

Using a spatula apply a thin even layer, of glitter paste over the stencil.



 Remove stencil carefully, and rinse stencil off straight away.



Let it fully dry. Over night is best.

Stamp and colour your images out and add Pom Pom's to their hats.(optional)

Stamp your sentiment on to black card stock.Then emboss, in white embossing powder.

Use mounting tape to attach your images.

then add your sentiment I also used mounting tape at the back to give a raised look.


Card Three



Peace, Love and Joy Stencil from My Favorite Things


Distress Oxides in Pine Needles and Mowed Lawn.


Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink


Gina K Green Grass Card Stock 4 1/2 x 5 2/4


Kraft Card cut to 5 x 11 3/4 Inches folded at 5 3/4

(This Makes a top folding card blank.)



Red/Pink Twine, Little Bells and Wooden Stag Head.( Dyed using Gina K Red Velvet Ink Pad)



Place the stencil over the green card stock.

Then using a blending tool add the lightest colour of green oxide, (Mowed lawn)

Blend on the colour, then come in with the darker green. (Pine Needles)

add it in patches.


Leave this for a few mins to dry, or speed up drying with a heat tool.

Then line up the stencil and come in with the Unicorn White ink pad, using a blending brush for litter coverage.


Then remove stencil and leave to dry.


I love the effect this gives.

Add your chosen embellishments.

Then fold your Kraft card stock and add to the front.



If your wooden embellishments don't match use a dye ink pad to change the colour.



This is my favorite design.

Happy Stamping
