2 in 1 Stencil Technique

 

Technique Time! The cards today will be featuring two cards with one technique.  The results are stunning for both cards!


The first steps are creating a mosaic look by using a stencil created from the large die from the Simply Succulent die set using the blending brushes and inks.  In this picture Misty Moonlight, Just Jade and Rich Razzleberry inks were used, but any colors would work with the same results.


These pictures show how the actual "stencil" is used for the second card.  Hence the 2 in 1 name for this technique.

Here is the video on how to make these cards.  It's a bit longer than usual, but it is featuring both techniques.

Dragonfly Sympathy

Fortunately I didn't need this card for anyone in particular.  In fact, it was a card for our recent "A La Carte" selections.  Each month I prepare eight card kits to choose from, and selections are made from those eight.  No stamping involved, just assembly (since Stampin' Up! policy does not allow us to sell kits with stamped images).  The sentiment stamped is my gift for ordering.  There is a minimum of eight card kits to purchase (at $2.25 each), and they can be mailed or picked up at my home.  If you're interested in receiving the list of cards available, feel free to email me and I'll send you the order form.
