Combinations of green and pink…

I played with a lot of stencils lately, and want to show two of these creations in this post. They happen to have mostly green and pink colors on them. TCW background collage flower - Ellie Knol (1) Please don’t ask me to list the stencils I’ve used on this card, LOL.
What I like about this one is that, even when you sponge a lot of layers with a lot of different stencils in different colors, in the end it turns out to be a background.
So, go grab your stencils and PLAY!
The flowers are recycled from a postcard… LOVE doing that sometimes if it fits nicely on a background.

On this card I used, YES, one grand brand NEW stencil from The Crafter´s Workshop!
At the same time it’s a NEW favorite stencil of mine, too!
The black is structure paste. I highlighted parts with a white acrylic marker.

I used this beautiful stencil :
TCW557 Lace 6×6

I also post a lot of creations with TCW stencils on my personal blog which I don’t post here at TCW, so if you’d wish to come and visit, you’re welcome!

Shabby quote tags using an assortment of stencils…

Hello… Today I have a fun project to share with you.  Just recently I had to make an apron with lots and lots of pretty blooms on it, for my daughters “100 days of school celebration”. and because I had my fabric scraps out I decide to make some shabby quote tags with the leftovers.

TCW 26 SEP lp 007So lets get a few supplies together. I used and assortment of 6×6 stencil and fragments.

TCW503 Signals, TCW506 Stepping Stones,TCW523 Be in love, TCW542 Rug, TCW2069 Bokeh Fragments, TCW341 Pie Chart, TCW541 Believe Script.

Other supplies: texture paste, shipping tags, spray inks, scraps of fabrics, ribbons and blooms. cotton thread, epoxy stickers, wood veneer, bella blvd quote stickers,sewing machine, cork and cardboard hearts and a gel pen.

Step 1:  Using an assortment of stencils apply texture paste thru each stencil on to the shipping tags (as many tags as you like). Allow to dry.

TCW 26 SEP lp 001

Step 2: Once dry grab an assortment of spray inks and spritz away. Allow each color to dry.

TCW 26 SEP lp 002

Step 3: Once the spray ink is dry use the script  stencil and place over the top of the shipping tags. Using a black ink randomly ink the edges. This gives the tag extra detail.

And the end result after using texture paste, spray ink and stamping ink. These are now ready to be embellished.

TCW 26 SEP lp 004

The next step is all yours, get creative with your fabric and ribbon scraps and machine stitch some of the scraps to the bottom of the tags, add some flower blooms, cotton thread, hearts, buttons, or what ever is lying about. And finish your tag of by sticking a quote on it. Outline the quote with a gel pen and you are all done!

…and a wee close up of the tags for you to enjoy.

Thank you for popping by today I hope you have been inspire to create a bit of cuteness  and colorful art.

Stenciling on Mylar – Cardmaking

Hello there Card Makers!  I love making cards for people, it is a gift in itself and a truly thoughtful way to share our love of creative crafting!  I also love to give blank cards, in a set, to someone for them to give someone else!  It is a great little gift for teachers or as a hostess gift.TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (19)

I used the 3 stencils below with a combination of spray mist & Staz-On Ink.OrganicMatterStencil           ComplicatedHearts           TCW - Mini Graceful Moths

I started with the 12×12 Organic Matter Stencil on Bazzill white cardstock and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Blush.
TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015

I love that this stencil also has the reverse mask!TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (1)

I used the Complicated Hearts and Graceful Moths 6×6 stencils on a piece of yellow Bazzill Mylar.  I used both black and white Staz-On Ink and it worked great!  I was a little worried it would smudge or not stencil clearly, but it was easy and dried beautifully!TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (7)

I cut my cardstock down to 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ cards to mount onto a black card base.  I also trimmed out all the mylar pieces I stenciled.  I made extras and could make more cards or will save some for another project.TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (14)

I made a simple formula for each card, layering 2 different doilies, gold thread and one of the mylar stencils on top.TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (21)

 I used the stencils from the Graceful Moths stencil, even though I thought they were butterflies!TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (25)

I also added a tiny clothespin holding a sticker for a sentiment.  They are all general and could be used for a variety of card needs!TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (27)

I stacked the cards up with vellum envelopes, wrapped a piece of vellum around the stack and added one of the stenciled hearts and twine to hold it all together!TCW_Mylar Steciled Cards_Sept 2015 (30)I hope this inspired you to play with some stencils and give the gift of your creativity to someone else!  Sort of like paying it forward, crafty style!! :)
