Amazing Stencils

June 10, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I have been playing around with cardmaking, molding paste, and stencils lately. I find that one of the best collection of stencils for this technique is the line from Ilse and Charlene with their vivid detail and clean lines.

Step One: Onto heavy cardstock, push heavy molding paste through the Spring Flower Mandala stencil. Peel back the stencil and let dry. Make sure to wash the stencil before any of the molding paste dries.

Step Two: Spray liquid ink onto the cardstock. I used a collection of Lindy’s Starburst Sprays. Let ink dry.

Step Three: Polish the ink off the molding paste. Splatter the ink once more onto the paper so it pools in a few places. Let dry.

Step Four: Push more molding paste through one of the stencils from the Pattern Stencil Pack stencils over the ink in several spots. As the paste dries it will absorb the color underneath.

Step Five: Hand stamp the texture stamp from the Make A Wish stamp set with black ink onto the cardstock.

Step Six: Die cut the cardstock using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut cardstock to an A2 card frame.

Step Seven: Stamp two feathers from the Make a Wish stamp set onto some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock with black ink.

Step Eight: Fussy cut out the feathers.

Step Nine: Using alcohol markers, color the feathers. I used copics in both Violet tones and Blue Violet.

Step Ten: Adhere the feathers to the card frame using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Eleven: Die cut a sentiment from the Words 2- Think of You die set. Adhere the sentiment to the card frame.

I just love the way the metallic spray inks reflect around the molding paste of the Mandala stencil.

Let us know in the comments below if you ever play with molding paste and card making? If not, how do you play with your Ilse and Charlene stencils? Make sure to let us know. Until then, happy crafting.

Art Journal Collection Charlene Stamps Inspiration from the Design Team

This is Love

April 22, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK and today I am playing around with Ilse and Charlene’s Lady and Gentleman stamp set to create a card, colored only in neutral browns. I just love how an all brown tone project looks, appearing very rustic, and yet somehow really colorful.

Step One: Using both watercolor paper and waterproof ink, stamp both the Lady and Gentleman stamp set and the First Sights of Spring stamp set images onto your paper. My paper is cut larger than my card frame, so I know the edges will still need to be trimmed before turning this into a card.

Step Two: Color the people in the image and different brown tones. I used watercolor pencils, but any watercolor medium would work. Here I have colored in the people like I would if I was using colored pencils.

Step Three: Using clear water, activate the watercolor pencils. Let dry.

Step Four: Finish coloring the rest of the image using your watercolor medium of choice.

Step Five: Again activate the pencil using clean water. Let dry again.

Step Six: Fill in the empty space using one of the Pattern Stencil Pack stencils. I picked the circles stencils and blended Tea Dye Distress Oxide through the stencil.

Step Seven: Trim the watercolor paper to fit an A2 card frame and adhere it to the frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Add craft drops to the project to add more visual interest. I used Metallic Gold Craft Drops to keep the neutral color palette.

Step Eight: Add a sentiment to the project from the Retro Label Sayings stamp set stamped in Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide.

What do you think of a project colored in only one color tone? Do you ever only ever use one value when creating a project? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
