Hi There Crafty Friends,
Sunday the 14th of February, is the day we celebrate Valentines Day. So this weeks blog is along that theme.
Stencils are becoming the favourite way, to create the most amazing projects. As they are very versatile and their price point is much lower.
Today I use the stencil in two different ways to create two very different valentines cards.
Heart Extraordinaire Stencil My Favorite Things
Lots Of Hearts Stencil My Favorite Things (Love Card)
Lots Of Love Die Namic My Favorite Things (Love Card)
Cosmic Shimmer Luna Paste (Moonlight Shimmer)
Silver Mirror Card Stock (Any)
Distress Oxide Ink (Ranger) Spun Sugar, and Picked Raspberry
Full of Hearts Stencil My Favorite Things (I Love You Card)
From The Heart Stamps My Favorite Things (I love You Card)
Nuvo Glimmer Paste (Moonstone)
Distress Oxide Ink (Ranger) Abandoned Coral, and Barn Door
Black Card Stock (Any)
Detail White Embossing Powder (Any)
Both Cards Use
C6 Card Blanks
Neenah 80lb Cardstock cut to 4" x 5 3/4"
First cut you neenah cardstock or similar to size so it fits on an C6 card blank.
Firstly Lay down the heart mask, put a little removeable tape on the back of the mask. Centre it to the upper area on your cardstock.
Then slowly go around the mask with the lightest of your oxide inks and a blender brush.
Making sure it is darker around the heart mask, so to high light the shape.
Place the Loads of Hearts stencil over the top, do not remove the heart mask.
Using a spatula apply the Luna paste, over the top of the who of your cardstock.
Then slowly remove the stencil and then the mask and leave to dry at least a few hours.
Die cut your Lots of Love die out of silver mirror card, and a couple out of white card to add demention, stack them together putting the silver on top. I used three white, layers then my silver.
I love you card
Place down the stencil, and using your oxide lightest colour first blend to create your heart.
Leaving your stencil in place, add the Full Of Hearts Stencil over the top.
Using the Nuvo paste and spatula apply a thin coat over the heart section of your work. The surrounding area is mask off by the first stencil, so don't worry about getting it in the wrong place.
Remove all masks and set aside to dry.
Stamp your sentiment on to black card stock and emboss in white powder.
Trim sentiment to fit.
I do hope you've enjoy todays blog
Take Care and Happy Stamping
