Stencilling Day 1

16:23

Hey all!
I am happy to report that it finally snowed here! Yay! And what a great day to stay in and do school work.  Wait a minute, the images don't look like I was busy with school work! But it's true! I'm taking another class at onlinecardclasses.com that focuses on stencilling! Check out the awesome cards I made from the inspiration from Day 1 of the class! There are some CTMH products used throughout but since we don't have stencils (although you can create them with our cricut cartridges) the cards contain a mixture of products! Hope you enjoy!


My first card is stencilling using a gradient look.  I kept pulling distress ink (broken china) from the top right corner.  The stencil I found at Michaels ages ago but there are many honeycomb stencils available since it's a fairly trendy pattern at the moment.  The sparkles are ctmh and so is the vellum and grey baker's twine.  I used a die cut tag from Sizzix!

This card features one of Tim Holtz's stencils.  I embossed the stencil in versa mark and covered it in white powder.  I think if I made this again I would use clear powder.  Anyway I used vellum and embellishments from CTMH and the stamp set is also Tim Holtz.


My last card for today focused on misting with stencils.  I realized I was doing a bunch of things wrong when misting and I'm happy to have brushed up on my technique.  First of all I was doing it way to close, and I was laying the card flat.  Problem solved! I embossed the CTMH stamp with CTMH black embossing powder and used the opaque pearls for embellishments and grey bakers twine.

Many of the embellishments will be retiring on January 31st.  Click here to see what is still left!
