Today I'm sharing this set of four inked, stenciled, stamped, and die cut cards featuring lots of new Sunny Days Ahead products as well as some of my previously released favs. I love mixing and matching newer and older product. I am also sharing some tricks and tips for masking stencils in the video. I love this effect!

Watch the creation of these four stenciled inlay sentiments cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
To start each card background, I lightly stenciled a rectangle shape using the largest Trinity Stamps A2 Foundations Rectangle on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" smooth white background with Simon Says Stamp Scuba Ink.
Leaving that stencil in place, I next used Pixie Spray on the back of the brand new Rose Trio Stencil to hold it in place and inked the roses with Simon Says Stamp Goldenlocks and Sunshine inks and the leaves with Scuba and High Dive inks. I decided not to mask the images and let a bit of the green "bleed" into the roses for a super soft look. Since I already was inking the yellow over the lightly inked aqua background this worked for these cards.
For the mom cards, I die cut the Outline Mom outline and die from each background. I also die cut the outline from smooth white cardstock twice and die cut the mom from Lawn Fawn Rainforest Cardstock. I inlaid and paper pieced the greetings on each background as shown. I love this technique of making a large die cut sentiment part of the background design.
Sentiments from the Mom Word Mix 2 Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Scuba Ink and die cut with the coordinating Word Mix 2 Die. The greetings were adhered below the die cut greeting with foam adhesive.
I finished the cards with a scattering of April Showers Sequins.
