Happy Monday morning!
I always try new techniques to make flashy cards and it can become quite challenging to always create something amazing. Today, I am focusing on a very basic technique with some enhancement with word dies and stencil butter.
TCW provided me with some awesome goodies to play with, but the opinions and creations are my own.
I created this first card using the TCW885 Cut Outs 6×6 Stencil Picket Fence Distress
ink and Kraft cardstock. Make sure your stencils are clean because the blue transferred onto my cardstock,
which actually turned out to be a very happy accident.
Remove the stencil and clean it thoroughly. Also, dry the white pigment ink on the cardstock with a heat gun. Next, slightly offset the stencil and add more coloring with distress oxide and other dye or pigment inks.
Let this dry and add a sentiment or five.
This technique shows up really well on black cardstock when using white ink as the “base”.
Again, start with a clean stencil, TCW347 Kaleidoscope 6×6, and add white ink.
Clean the stencil and dry the cardstock. I added a blue and purple distress
oxide and then a dash of platinum modeling paste.
Add a quick frame and sassy sentiment to finish this top folding card. This card looks 3 dimensional in person.
My last card was also done on black cardstock and I used the TCW884 Explosion 6×6 stencil with distress oxide.
I finished this card with a pretty frame die and a Good Job Mama sentiment.
I hope you liked today’s cards and will give this simple technique a try!
