Stenciling has always fascinated me, and a technique I use continually. Today’s card is in one of my favorite colors, Mint Macaron.
I was inspired by this week’s Fusion challenge; the color mint, and the sketch with circles.
The pattern for stenciling is from the Delightfully Detailed DSP, which I placed over a piece of 4″ X 5 1/4″ Whisper White cardstock. The stencil was held in place on four corners with Washi Tape. Then, I inked a Sponge Dauber with Mint Macaron ink, and daubed over the pattern. Once satisfied with the coverage, I lifted the stencil, and voila!
I used a Rectangle Stitched die to cut my art piece to size, and glued it to a Mint Macaron card base.
The sentiment, “Congratulations,” is from the Well Said stamp set, which fit perfectly within a Rectangle Stitched die.
I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink on Whisper White cardstock, and positioned it on Mini-Dimensionals, as in the Fusion sketch.
For a touch of sparkle, I added some Iridescent Sequins.
If you haven’t tried stenciling, you should! I hope my project has inspired you. You’ll find my supplies in the Product List below, where clicking on the pictures will take you to my store for purchasing.
For Jaydee’s Clean and Simple challenge, I used minimal supplies to make it a #simplestamping project.
You can follow along with my video recording below.
I selected the “Distinktive” succulent stamp from the Painted Seasons stamp set, and six colors of ink for stamping: Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Highland Heather. I stamped the succulent, forming a rainbow, across Whisper White cardstock, cleaning the stamp on my Stampin’ Scrub between colors. The dots were added with a second stamp from Painted Seasons.
“You are wonderful” is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, which I stamped in Black ink.
My “one layer” was adhered to its Thick Whisper White card base with Snail Adhesive, and was the fastest card I’ve made in a long time. But, I like the results, and it would be great for a beginner.
Here goes my embarrassing video. I promise to work on my camera placement!
