Happy Monday everyone!
Today I have four, yes four, cards to share with you! I've used the My Favorite Things Stencils to create four cards using three different techniques.
The first two cards I'm going to share with you showcases one of my favorite ways of using stencils: combining the stencil with embossing paste!
For this wedding-themed card I created a white on white background using the Petal Pattern Stencils and white embossing paste. I trimmed the embossing paste background (once it was dry, about fifteen minutes) to fit behind a Die-namics Rectangle Frames die cut. I die cut the Die-namics Bride and Groom die cuts and adhered them to the Petal Pattern Stencils background, stamped the greeting from the Together Forever Stamp Set on a piece of acetate using White Staz-On ink. I layered the acetate behind the Die-namics Rectangle Frames die cut and adhered the frame with foam tape.
This card is a variation of the same technique only this time I created a custom color of embossing paste by mixing some Brick Red Hybrid Ink with the white embossing paste and applying it over the Brick Wall Stencil for a great realistic looking brick wall background!
I stamped and Copic colored the supergirl from the You're Super Stamp Set and die cut her, the mask and the thought bubble using the coordinating You're Super Die-namics dies. I created a "sidewalk" for my heroine to stand on using a Blueprints 13 Die-namics collection die. I stamped and embossed the greeting from the You're Super Stamp Set on the vellum die cut and used the Die-namics Rectangle Frames die cut to frame up the fun superhero scene!
I finished my scene with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
For this next card, I airbrushed the Stargaze Stencil using the Tim Holtz Spritzer airbrush tool and Distress Markers. I die cut a stitched rectangle using the Blueprints 13 Die-namics collection die and colored in the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Salty Ocean Distress Ink using the Mini Ink Blending Tool. Then I placed the Stargaze Stencil over the top and created a tone-on-tone stary sky effect by airbrushing with the same distress colors, only using the markers!
I stamped the greeting from the Bold Statements Stamp Set using the Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I die cut the round balloon from the Party Balloons Die-namics collection three times and stamped the round balloon from the Party Balloons Stamp Set on each using Wild Cherry Hybrid Ink, Lemon Drop Hybrid Ink and Orange Fizz Hybrid Ink. I stamped the balloon strings from the Party Balloons Stamp Set, masking off the greeting and popped the balloons up with foam adhesive. Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen gives the balloons a bit of sparkle!
The third way I'm showing how to use My Favorite Things Stencils is with spray mist. I used the Studio Calico Silver Mister Huey with the Stone Wall Stencil for a subtle tone-on-tone background for this fun anniversary card. I love the way the pattern give the background some much needed "texture" and interest without overpowering the design and sentiment.
After I misted the pattern through the stencil and allowed it to air dry, I die cut a panel for my card front using a Blueprints 13 Die-namics collection die. I stamped and embossed the greeting from the Together Forever Stamp Set and die cut hearts from Bubblegum Felt and Razzle Berry Felt using the Staggered Heart Border Die-namics dies. I handstitched the felt hearts in place using a thick white thread.
