Stencil Stamping + Beautiful Days Blog Hop

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards are part of THIS fun Blog Hop celebrating THIS new release. These cards were made from THESE cards that I shared yesterday doing stencil stamping…

After inking up yesterday’s cards, there was a lot of ink left on the stencil. I spritzed that ink with water and “stamped” the stencil on to a piece of white cardstock. This gives a whole new look to the stencil pattern. You get the reverse pattern because you are stamping the solid pieces of the stencil pattern.

For the first card…

I stamped the floral image from THIS stamp set and used THESE coordinating dies to cut it out. I adhered it to the background along with THIS die cut word and THIS sub sentiment that I added silver foil to with my MINC machine. I finished off the design with THESE sequins…

For the second card…

I stamped the other floral image from the same stamp set and stamped a sentiment from the set directly on the background. I finished off the card with some of THESE embellishments.

I also used THIS embossing mat with my die cut machine to dry emboss the stencil on the flap of the image.

Here’s a look at each card with the original card to show the different looks you can get with stencil stamping…

    Wow, so many creative cards–all so different and delightful! I love the yarn themed cards–I’ve done lots of knitting in my day, it’s one of those things that I switch off to. My current passion is creating cards and learning and playing with new techniques. Your cards are a wonderful example of just that! Thank you!
