Stenciling Over Patterned Paper | Happy Holidays Craft Collabs Hop | Video

Have you missed me? It has been ages since I last shared here. Life has been a bit difficult lately, but I’ve finally got myself back to crafting. I find that crafting, blogging and video making helps me to de-stress, so hopefully this will be helpful to me, and ideally you’ll enjoy what I share too! If you follow me on YouTube you’ll have seen these cards already as I got the video uploaded there earlier this week. I finally decided I should get this blog post done too, before the giveaway ends! If you’d like to enter the giveaway be sure to click through to YouTube to find out all the details.

I started with a 6×6″ piece of patterned paper, which was white with a silvery pattern of musical notation on it. I then placed the Snowflake Net stencil, from our sponsor A Colorful Life Designs, over the patterned paper. I ink blended through it with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide and an ink blending tool.

Card 1 – Full Panel

For my first card I used one of the Never-Ending Rectangle Dies from Kat Scrappiness to cut a panel from the stenciled paper. I then dry embossed the panel with the Big Swirl stencil to add some texture. I layered the panel onto silver mirror card. I heat embossed a sentiment from Hero Arts’ Polar Greetings onto a piece of vellum using Love From Lizi Silver Dollar Embossing Powder. I trimmed the vellum down and wrapped it around the stenciled panel, before popping the whole lot up on a blue card base.

Card 2 – Using Off-Cuts

My second card uses an off-cut snippet of the stenciling for a more clean and simple design. I positioned the strip on a dark blue pencil and lined up a sentiment from Concord & 9th’s Very Merry Sentiments so that it overlapped the edge of the panel. I heat embossed it with Love From Lizi Silver Dollar Embossing Powder then adhered the panel into place, ensuring the sentiment was fully lined up. I finished off with some Silver Lining Nuvo Drops.

  1. Great snippets card Charlotte and how clever you were with the sentiment. It reminds me so much of the Memory Box Christmas and Birthday dies – at no additional cost! Well done.
