DT Teresa - Stencils 2

Hi Everyone! 

Today I am sharing another card using a stencil, our theme for this month of June.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".



I started by taping down a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to my work surface with masking tape to keep in place while I worked (but could be easily removed when finished) and taped down a 6" x 6" Crafter's Workshop stencil Tiny Circles over the top of the cardstock.

I mixed together in a bowl a small amount of Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste in white with a few drops of Distress Ink in Lucky Clover from a refill bottle and some emerald green glitter. I then used a palette knife to evenly apply the paste to the stencil. Once covered, I removed the stencil and immediately placed it into a basin of soapy water to be washed off later and set the stenciled cardstock aside to dry.



The beautiful image was created using Hero Arts Color Layering Peacock. The peacock was stamped with different colours of Hero Arts mid-tone Shadow Ink. The solid body was stamped with Pool, the tail with Emerald Green, the layered feathers on the body and tail and the legs in Navy and the eyes in the tail and beak were stamped with Lemon Yellow. I diecut the peacock and set it aside.

I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with an ink blending tool to add colour to a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Solar White Cardstock and diecut it with the rectangle die from My Favorite Things Blueprints 21 and adhered it to the card base with Kokuyo Glue Tape Roller.

Once the stenciled cardstock piece was dry, I diecut a circle from it with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles die. I used Simon Says Stamp Cardstock Soft Navy to diecut a circle only marginally larger to tuck behind the stenciled circle piece and adhered both to the cardfront. 

The sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy was cut apart and positioned to stamp in Hero Arts mid-tone Shadow Ink, Navy, with a Misti Stamping Tool onto a strip of cardstock, along with flourishes from the Hero Arts Color Layering Peacock stamp set.



I diecut multiple copies of the peacock shape and glued them as a stack to create a chipboard-type piece and placed the stamped image on top. I then stuck the sentiment piece to the card and glued the peacock on top before brushing A Wink of Stella, Clear, onto each of the yellow areas for some shimmer.

Thankyou for following along with me today. Please feel free to ask questions if anything needs clarifying. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.


Happy crafting and have a great day!
