Hello friends! I'm sharing three ways to use a sunshine stencil today for quick and easy, yet stunning cards. We will be using Deco Foil Transer Gel Duo and Foil on one background, applying Gold Glitz Glitter Gel to colored cardstock for the another background, and applying dye inks through the stencil first and finishing with White Glitz Glitter Gel on top for a rainbow of glittery rays for the third card. All designs were finished with a die cut heart in the center that features a greeting! My favorite thing about these cards? They mix and match supplies from many companies. This is always one of my most favorite techniques and ways to extend your supplies!

Watch the creation of these three stenciled cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
All three backgrounds started with a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of cardstock and each was stenciled with the MFT Stamps Radiating Rays Stencil.
The background of this card was created by inking Simon Says Stamp Dye Inks in Doll Pink, Lipstick Red, Clementine, Lemon Zing, Mint, Green Leaf, Maliblue, Blue Jay, and Lavender through the MFT Stamps Radiating Rays Stencil with blending brushes. A layer of White Glitz Glitter Gel was applied over the top of the inked design through the stencil using a Stencil Pal.
A heart was die cut from smooth white cardstock using a Simon Says Stamp Nesting Hearts Die. Greetings from the Gina K Designs Be The Rainbow Stamp Set were stamped on the heart with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
The heart was applied to the background with foam adhesive squares and finished with a scattering of Little Things Sprinkles Big Hearts embellishments.
The background of this card was created by applying a layer of Deco Foil Transer Gel Duo through the stencil using a Stencil Pal. The gel was allowed to dry for an hour before Rainbow Foil was used with a Die Cutting Machine to apply the foil to the gel. This gel can be used with either a laminator OR a die cutting machine.
A heart was die cut from black cardstock using a Simon Says Stamp Nesting Hearts Die. A greeting from the Gina K Designs Be The Rainbow Stamp Set was stamped on the heart with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Another sentiment was stamped with black dye ink on smooth white cardstock and die cut with a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Die. The phrase strip was adhered to the heart with foam adhesive.
The heart was applied to the background with foam adhesive squares and finished with a scattering of Sweethearts Embellishments.
A heart was die cut from gold foil cardstock using a Simon Says Stamp Nesting Hearts Die. A greeting from the Gina K Sunshine Die Set was die cut three times from Glimmery Sunshine Cardstock and adhered one on top of another and adhered to the heart as shown. Another sentiment from the Gina K Sunshine Stamp Set was stamped with clear embossing ink on smooth white cardstock, embossed with gold embossing powder, and die cut with a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Die. The phrase strip was adhered to the heart with foam adhesive.
