Stencils and Stamps



Today's card was made using Dreamweaver Stencils which are so much fun to use with sprays, I think it might be my favorite way to use them but I really do like dry embossing with them too.  I love the look you get when they are used with embossing paste, but I am so impatient and it is very hard for me to wait until the embossing paste dries.  

For this card I placed the stencil Tree of Life on a white panel, sprayed with green spray. Once it was dry, the sentiment Faith Possible was stamped with brown ink.

Live Each Day


I'm really happy with how this card turned out, bright and cheery.  The main image is an all in one stamp from Stampendous called "Live Each Day"  so you stamp once and you're done.  The background was made using two different Dreamweaver Stencils, you don't need decorative paper, you can make your own!

Here is how my card was made;
1.  Stamp Live Each Day on white paper with black ink and color with pencils.
2.  Sponge edges with blue ink and layer onto black paper.  Set aside.
3.  Place the Big Dots Stencil at the bottom of a yellow panel and stipple with gesso.  Set aside to dry.
4.  Place Cathedral Windows Stencils on white paper and sponge with Wilted Lilac ink. Remove stencil and sponge with Shaded Lilac ink.  Layer onto black paper, tie with a yellow ribbon and glue to card.
5.  Glue Live Each Day to the card.

Fishy Kiss


This House Mouse stamp is so cute and fun to color.  You can see the glare of the clear embossing powder on the fish bowl, it's a nice touch to add and pretty easy. All week the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing their House Mouse creations with you.

Here is how my card was made;
1.  Stamp Fishy Kiss on white paper with black ink, color with pencils and shade around the mouse with blue chalk using a flat brush to apply.
2.  Mask everything except for the fish bowl and smoosh a VersaMark pad on the fish bowl.  Remove the mask, sprinkle on Chunky Clear Deep Impressions Embossing Enamel and start heating from underneath so the chunks don't blow off.  Once it starts melting heat from the top.  You can see she shine in the picture, it looks like a fish bowl.
3.  Sponge the bottom of the panel with brown chalk and layer onto Sweep Potato paper and glue to a Sky card.
4.  Using the Fitted Frames Dies, die cut a white and Sky panel.  Stamp the white panel with sentiment using black ink.  Layer onto Sky panel.
5. Color three small self adhesive pearls with a Spectrum Noir marker OR2 to color them orange and apply above the sentiment.  Pop up on card.
