Stencil techniques
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.583705980697E12

Hello everyone! Spring is getting closer by the minute and I'm loving the new stencils from the spring release, so once I got started I just couldn't stop myself. I absolutely LOVE stencils, they can be used in so many different ways and today I'm sharing a couple of different techniques. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

Let's start easy, however a bit untraditionally. Here I'm using the Chrysanthemum stencil with just one ink on patterned paper. 
Watermark1.583705980697E12

The Whittle cutie rabbit is also cut from patterned paper, and to add a little sparkle I also cut it from glitter paper and offset it behind the patterned paper.

For the next card I switched to white cardstock and 5 colors of ink with the Romantic Blooms stencil.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I first masked off the leaves. Then, starting from the centre of the flower, using a soft yellow, light and dark pink to create depth. I did the same for the leaves while masking off the flowers. I'm not fancy so I simply use Post It's that I tear to fit the needed area.
Watermark1.583706177934E12

I just love the soft blended look of this, so all I did was add a sentiment courtesy of Birch Press Designs. And I love the tiny cuts in these label sets that allow for a small ribbon to go through. So romantic. I backed the panel and label with pink glitter paper. Just look at all that sparkle. LOVE! 

Watermark1.583706033425E12

This card features my favorite stencil technique. It's really easy to do and if you use a glitter embossing powder, like I did here, all you really need to add is a sentiment. I cut the Friend folksy script die from black cardstock 3 times and layered it. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Birch Press Designs.
Watermark1.583706033425E12

I'm using the Bright Blossoms stencil. I go over the stencil with a nice thick coat of texture paste. Once the stencil is removed (and cleaned) I add my embossing powder. You then want to set it aside and let it dry completely before heat setting it. Depending on the amount of glitter in your powder you may want to let it dry before removing any excess powder as well. You'll be left with a beautiful textured, and in my case very glittery, impression of your stencil.

On this card I'm using the gorgeous Birch Press Designs Midnight Mandala stencil with texture paste and watercolor powders.

IMG_20200308_131318

I recommend spraying your stencil with temporary adhesive. And even then I still get a little bleeding. But I love the shiny textured look.
IMG_20200308_134618
I die cut the border and hugs heart from white cardstock and the heart from glitter paper as well. The white heart was used to back the glitter paper and then I popped it up with craft foam for dimension.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

For my final card I'm using the Memory Box Leafy Jumble stencil for partial stenciling with gold glimmer paste on patterned paper.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I wanted to use a dark paper and white cardstock for die cutting, and I felt this whimsical glittery textured surface would just break the pattern.
Watermark1.583706087205E12

I cut out the wheelbarrow 3 times and layered them for sturdiness before popping it up with craft foam. I cut 2 branches of the floral cluster and placed them on the patterned paper. I also cut out the tiny flowers from soft pink and orange glitter paper and added them to the branches. I finished off the flowers with a drop of Fairy Sugar in matching colors. Sentiment label is also popped up.

So there you have them. Thank you for sticking around 'til the end, I really hope I've inspired you. Let me know which technique is your favorite and if there's a technique you'd like me to give more details to in the future. Have a great day, and happy crafting!

Pawsitively adore you

Hello Poppy fans! It's still February, the month of love. Today I'm sharing a quick, easy card.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I first ink blended one side of a panel to get a bold ombre effect. 
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I then cut a strip wide enough to back the Curvy Heart side strip and cut a white panel with the die. I also stamped my sentiment.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

I backed the panel with craft foam for dimension.
Watermark1.582380011194E12

On the leftover piece of the inked panel I stamped directly pad to paper with my embossing ink and covered with my absolute most favorite embossing powder. You'll see some red flecks in there but it's a dark violet with gold specks in it. So gorgeous! 
IMG_20200222_154637

I then die cut the Whittle dog. I used black Nuvo drops to give him eyes and a nose.

See? Just a few easy steps and you've got yourself a beautiful card for someone you love.
Now don't be shy to leave me a little love down below. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Hugs
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_6715-wm

Hello Friends!

It'a a beautiful spring day, which means it is time to celebrate with Happy Hugs! I used soft spring colors and an inlay technique to create this pretty "hugs" card. I think it will make the perfect birthday card for someone special. Take a look!

IMG_6711-wm

To create this Happy Hugs card, I started out by cutting the Graceful Heart Frame in a crisp white color.

IMG_6705-wm

I adhered the frame onto a pale blue card base, then cut the graceful heart frame again, in a soft green and a linen white.

IMG_6708-wm

Once all of my leaves were cut, I then carefully inserted the green and linen white leaf pieces with a very thin-tipped adhesive and a pair of craft tweezers. A beautiful inlay technique takes a little time and patience, so don't try to create this look in a rush.

IMG_6709-wm

Once the leaves are in place, add the Luscious Script Hugs cut in lemon yellow and white, along with a Little Hummingbird cut in pale lilac.

IMG_6714-wm

A few sparkly sequins give this card the finishing touch!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

With Love From Me To You
By Jeanne Jachna

Love-Four

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day and the sun is shining wherever you are!  It's been cold here in the Midwest and I'm looking forward to the weekend.  It's supposed to be warmer then, and I'm looking forward to getting out with Miss Moriko.  It's been too cold to walk, so I've been taking her for drives in the car.  We probably look crazy because I've got the heat on high, and she's hanging out the window! 

Love-One
I think the latest Valentine's release is too pretty for once a year and plan to use the dies all year round.  I mean.. who ever gets tired of hearing that they are loved?  Not me! 

Banded-Hearts

This card starts with the die cut Banded Hearts adhered to a white card stock base.   Next I cut the die with colorful card stock scraps.   All the hearts are the same size so you don't have to worry about fitting the right heart in the right opening.   I adhered the hearts in a random order.    When I was done I stacked on a second Banded Hearts die cut from white card stock to add some depth to the panel.

Love-Two

I just love the rainbow of color!  It's like candy for the eyes!
Love-Three
I wrapped gold twine around my fingers to create rings and then adhered the assembled Love Outline over the twine.   I applied adhesive foam twine  behind the Love Outline die for more dimension and drama. The sentiment is from the new Birch Press Design "You Are Awesome" stamp set.  It's got lots of sentiments that would work well with word dies. 

Love
Hugs and love to you sweet friends!
