Good morning! Today I’m sharing a quick card using a fun and easy technique: stencil layering! With a few rotations of my stencil I can create a totally new look!
To start I spray the Solar Burst stencil lightly with Thermoweb Pixie Spray. Pixie Spray is a tacky, repositionable adhesive that really helps with stenciling. After about a minute or two the spray is tacky to the touch and can be placed on your paper. I give it a good press to make sure it’s adhered and then it’s ready for stenciling! I applied a layer of spun sugar distress oxide ink first and then lifted the stencil. I turned the stencil just slightly so that the points were moved about a 1/3rd of the way towards the next point and then pressed the stencil down again. This time I applied candied apple distress oxide ink. I repeated the process, moved the stencil, and then applied a layer of picked raspberry distress oxide ink. This time I applied the ink across the entire panel. I removed the stencil and let the panel dry completely. At this point you can put your stencil back into your storage pocket for future use. It’s a little tacky still but can be easily peeled off a backer or plastic and can be resprayed if it loses its stickiness in the future!
While that was drying I die-cut the Love You die from white cardstock and black glitter cardstock and adhered them together with liquid adhesive. I stamped a sentiment from Tiny Words onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I trimmed it down to a thin label. Once the stenciled panel was dry I trimmed it down to 4″ by 5.25″ and adhered it to a white card base. Finally, I added the sentiment die and sentiment label to finish the card!
Thanks so much for visiting and have an amazing weekend!
