Stenciling with Embossing Paste
by Nancy Penir
Greetings Poppy Peeps! Have you seen all the new stencils in the Poppystamps store? I'm here to show you a favorite way to use stencils. Maybe new to you, maybe a refresher. Hope it inspires you to use your stencils more.
Poppystamps Leafy Jumble Stencil is a fun all over leaf pattern. I did 3 panels with this stencil using metallic silver embossing paste.
I chose this panel and made 2 cards. First covering the card with Distress Inks, then laying down the stencil and sweeping on the paste with a craft knife. Now comes the hard part... waiting for it to dry!
I picked the spot which showed the most overall blend of color and cut my circle.
2 cards with one panel, this one will be a standard A2 card.
The circle was used inside this 5 x 5 square card.
All product will be listed below. Because this is a square, I love to create my own envelopes to go with it.
So easy with a 1 2 3 Punchboard. And a great way to use up extra 2 sided paper from your stash! If you're like me, that stash is endless!
My A2 shaker card all set to send hugs to someone special.
And 2 hugs cards with one panel!
Hope you take a good long look at the stencils available now in the Poppystamps shop. And hope you were inspired to try a little paste with them! So many fun ways to enjoy crafting, aren't there? Have a great week!
