Mother’s Day is approaching quickly in the US (we had it on Sunday already in Hungary) therefore I brought you a couple of projects to celebrate our mums. They are all focused on the Floral Lace stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs with different stenciling techniques.
I will admit, this is my favourite of all. I used the stencil on kraft cardstock with Distress Crackle Texture paste which I have coloured with Distress Oxide inks beforehand. Although I used bright colours (Picked Raspberry, Cared Pumpin and Mustard Seed), it makes a very pretty muted pastel colour after drying. And it cracks, so beautiful! Gorgeous on its own, don’t you think?
When it was dry I used the Frames and flags die to cut it out.
The sentiment (Mother’s Day stamp set) I white heat embossed on vellum which had Stick it adhesive on the back so I could double it up easily. I used Stick it also to adhere it down to the background.
I used a white gelly roll pen to colour the flowers and added little white pearls to the centers. So delicate and special because of the paste! I cannot wait to play more with this crackle paste!
Here I used a different technique: first I added a stenciled layer with white pigment ink on kraft cardstock. Then I moved the stencil a bit and added Distress Oxide inks (same colours as above).
To make the whole colourful layer be more special I added Moda Scrap Gelly Gloss glitter gel which made it shiny and delicatly glittery. This was a totally new to me product too, but I am so happy that I tried it! Fantastic!
Here the sentiment I stamped with Distress Oxide inks and clear heat embossed them. I painted the flowers with the same inks and added glossy accents to the centers.
To cut the sentiment I partial die cut the rounded rectangle from Frames and Flags. The stenciled background is die cut with the scalloped rectangle die from the same set.
I still had plenty of coloured texture paste on my craft mat from the first card, so I made another background witht he same stencil. Here the colours mixed more, creating new shades.
When it was dry, I cut the panel down with a Sky border die, added Mama under it with die cut letters (Essential Alphabet) and a white heat embossed sentiment on dark brown cardstock (Birthday Essentials).
I finished this card with a few satin sequins.
I hope you enjoyed this extensive post and I made you curious to try different ways to use your stencils.
