Stencilled Fun – Day 1


I’m currently enjoying my first ever online card making class, Stencilled, from Online Card Classes. This morning I had a chance to try out a couple of the techniques from Day 1 – misting and inking stencils. First I used the Tim Holtz Bubble stencil and spritzed it with Mister Huey’s Bazinga blue. After leaving it for a couple of minutes to dry I positioned the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil over the top and used a piece of stamping sponge to apply ink directly from a Stampin Up Daffodil Delight ink pad. I like the control that inking with a sponge provides ;). I felt the panel needed a third colour so this time spritzed Mister Huey Sea Foam closer to the panel to get the splotchy look.


The sentiment is from the fabulous Neat and Tangled Everyday Circles set which arrived in the mail this week – love it! The little arrow was from left over die cuts from the Avery Elle Chevron Bits dies. The top of the white panel was punched with a retired Stampin Up notebook punch.

Hopefully I’ll have more stencilled cards to share later!

All Squared Up


I love the strong graphic style of this Avery Elle set All Squared Up and how it lends itself to clean and simple cards. Here I stamped the hexagon outline in Hero Arts black dye ink and used the fill-in stamp to add random bits of colour. I had some Neat and Tangled sequins that matched the ink colours  so added a few of those too for a little extra interest. The greeting and frame are also from the All Squared Up Set (lots of options!). I stamped it on some scrap paper then cut it out with a circle punch. The little arrow shapes were cut using the Avery Elle Chevon Bits die.


This week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is “A” so I’m entering this card as it uses two Avery Elle sets.
