Stenciled – Day 2

January 26th, 2014 · 4 Comments

Stenciled - Day 2

I had a lot of fun pulling out some of my old Stampin’ Up! supplies (stencils and wheels) to create this one-layer Christmas card. It was inspired by Kristina Werner’s You Add Color To My Life card on Day 2 of the Stenciled online card class.

I used Shimmery White card stock for my card base and stamped the holiday sentiment with VersaMark ink in the center of the card. After heat embossing it with white EP, I placed the ornament stencil over the sentiment and rolled the Leaves à la Carte Jumbo Wheel with Coastal Cabana ink over the stencil, then completed the image by sponging more ink. I did the same with the Baroque Border Wheel and Strawberry Slush ink. The Pistachio Pudding ornament was added last, just by sponging inside the stencil. I wiped off the ink from the embossed letters and shaded them with a Smoky Slate marker to make them stand out more.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh Vera, this is a beauty. What a great combination of stamps and colors. Love this postage friendly card, and I think you did a phenomenal job on the stenciling technique!

    I’m visiting from the Stenciled class, looking at cards that used this technique. I love how yours’ turned out!

    I just love this cared. Although it’s only one layer, the levels of dimension are awesome.
