See two cards that use stenciling over different papers to create the coolest looks!
Today Lisa is sharing her take on stenciling over different papers and we have to say the results are so gorgeous that we immediately started picturing ALL our stencils with ALL our new patterns in our new Rubbernecker Paper Pads!
Let’s get Lisa’s tips on stenciling over patterned papers AND gel prints and see how she made these two cards.
For both cards, after choosing her leaf patterned paper from our Harvest Time Paper Pad and a gel print she had previously made with our Swirls Stencil, she cut both pieces to a card panel size. She applied some Pixie Spray to the back of our Sun Burst Stencil and blended yellow, orange and pink shades of Color Fuse Inks from Sets #1, #2 and #4 through the stencil to create her graphic rays.
After removing the stencil, Lisa blended yellow ink over the center of the sun on her gel print panel and used a die cut circle to cover the sun center on the leaf card.
Now she used these two similar pieces to create two very different cards! Lisa cut black card stock with our Southwest Hills and Kokopelli dies, trimming the hills to span her card landscape style.
She layered her stenciled gel print over yellow and black pieces of card stock and mounted them to her card base. Lisa added her die cut hills with a thin foam tape and then added her Kokopelli elements with more dimensional adhesive. After cutting the script portion of the You Script With Shadow die three times from scraps of black card stock and adhering them in a stack, Lisa added it to the upper right hand corner.
She then stamped “you are my sunshine” from our Like a Sunflower set in VersaMark, heat embossed it in white powder and trimmed it down, snipping off the “you”. She added it under her die cut word, added a few sequins and card number one was ready to dazzle some lucky recipient!
For her second card, Lisa die cut some leftover gel print in browns with our Maple Leaves die set, adding in some more of the yellows, oranges and pinks from her Color Fuse sets previously used with her favorite blending brush. Don’t you just love how fearlessly Lisa adds color? We are taking a page out of her book!
Lisa used our Happy Script With Shadow die the same way she did on the other card, cutting the script portion three times from dark brown card stock and stacking them together with liquid glue. She added this over the center of the sun for some visual grounding.
Lisa repeated her stamping, heat embossing and trimming with another sentiment and added it to her card. She then popped up her leaves with some dimensional adhesive and added sequins here, too.
We really do love seeing ways to make more than one project at a time and with these ideas and tips from Lisa, we are thinking we could maybe do a FEW at a time! Here’s what Lisa used from our store today so grab what you saw that you love and browse your stash for the rest:
These cards definitely make us see stenciling over different papers as fun way to add lots of detail with just a little extra effort. How about you? Do you spot anything you’d like to add a stenciled layer of wow to?
