Cards ~ OffSet Technique

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.

Card #1

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.

Card #2

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.

Card #3

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!
