Hello there! Sanna here again with two fast and easy-to-do cards. My inspiration for these came from Pinterest. I saw a painting there that I really liked and as I was watching it, it came to my mind, that I could try and create a similar looking background for my cards.
So I just applied acrylic paint layer after layer with a foam brush, let the layers dry properly and after the paint was all dry, applied some white paint thru the “Arrows and Hearts” stencil over the larger magenta painted area for more contrast. On the other card (blue) I used the same technique and stencil, but doodled the stencil images thru the stencil by using a white pen. Then all I needed to do was to add some sequins and the sentiment for finish my cards. Fairly easy, but effective.
I should maybe also add that while I was creating these cards, we had really warm summer weather with degrees up to +38°C here in Austria. Fast and easy projects were just perfect for this kind of weather (and can also be created outside in the garden)…
While I was at it, I also made myself a little bookmark out of a card leftover piece. This one is also really easy to make. I just took the same stencil, doodled thru it with a black pen and after that just colored the images with markers. Easy peasy..
I have been using quite a few stencils on other projects during the past months. There are also some step-by-step tutorials over at my blog – so just hop over here, here and here if you want to take a look at those projects.
See you soon,

These look amazing. Love that stencil & how you’ve used the acrylic paints….soo creative:):):)
Loooooooove this stencil and the way Sanna has used it. I really like the fact that you can choose different lines of patterns from one stencil.
What a great stencil and what a great idea to use it!!!
