Stencil Overlay Thank You Card

Hello Everyone, Jen here today to share with you an stencil overlay ‘on the fly’ Thank you card.

This will be my last post and I wanted to express my gratitude for this wonderful opportunity to share my creations with the Crafter’s Workshop community.

Times when you need a thank you card and store bought ones just won’t do, this is a super fun and easy way to design your own with more style and personality!

Supplies needed:

  • Acrylic paint
  • Foam brush
  • Stencils: TCW601 Poppy Field, TCW630 Chickadee Post, and TCW 508S Flow Chart.
  • White gel pen
  • Scissors
  • Paper: water color or cardstock

Step 1: Place stencil design over paper and paint. Here I started with TCW601 Poppy Field in Turquoise.

Step 2


Step 2:

Adding magenta over the first layer, let dry before moving on to the next step.

Step 3

Two tones of turquoise & magenta


Step 3: Stencil overlay:

slightly shift the stencil over to one side of your paper, then overlay another color of paint here I used gold.


Step 4: While this layer is drying  move on to another small sheet of paper/card stock.

I painted my background with a high gloss black, while tracing the bird design from TCW630 Chickadee Post with a white gel pen.


Then I decided to add more detail inside the bird with the white gel pen.



I then cut the bird out and moved on to using TCW 508S Flow Chart to trace out design and write the words Thank you inside.


Step 5: I then went back over my first layers with my white gel pen to outline the poppies.


I then placed the cut out bird design and the Thank you bubble and secured it on my card to finish the design.



Hope you enjoyed this!
