This could be one of our favorite cloud stencil designs yet!

There are lots of cloud stencil designs you can use to add a fun background in your card making and this one today from Jamie, with all these beautifully blended pastel layers of clouds, is absolutely ADORABLE! Who would have thought that just a repeat using our Cloud Stencil and some of our softer shades of Color Fuse Ink could make a background like this? Well, clearly Jamie did! Let’s see how she made this card.

First, she took a piece of white card stock large enough for a slimline card and using that Cloud Stencil, she applied Blush, Sky and Clover Color Fuse Inks with a blending brush over the stencil to make her big, soft, puffy clouds. PRO TIP: shift your stencil around with each additional layer to give you all that variation in curves and puffs.

When she had stenciled her whole panel with those delightful candy colors, Jamie die cut it with our Slimline Solid Bubble Scallop die and layered this over a slightly larger panel of more white card stock and then adhered that to a light blue card front using her tape runner.

Now she stamped the animals and balloons from our Babies on Balloons set onto watercolor paper with VersaFine ink and heat embossed everything with clear embossing powder. PRO TIP: If you are planning to use any water based medium, clear embossing your images will help keep the color from bleeding outside of the image lines. Jamie colored in her sweet little images with her Inktense pencils and then cut them out with the coordinating die set.

Jamie then stamped her sentiment from the set with black ink onto a scrap of white card stock, layered it with a scrap of light blue card stock and then added it at a slight angle to the top left of the cloud stenciled panel with tape.

Now she added her little animals and balloons with foam squares to look as if they were floating up to bring encouraging wishes. She cut some lengths of baker’s twine, tied them up with knots at one end and tucked and adhered the other ends under the edges of the balloons with liquid glue and a tiny dot over the animal’s hands to hold on tight.

Jamie then added a few sequins over her clouds and a few enamel dots on the sentiment piece and this card was ready to make someone feel like they could reach the sky!
