Merry Christmas

Hello there!

I’m over at the Neat & Tangled blog today to share a card using a combination of stencils, stamps and dies 😉

I created this vibrant background using the Radiating Star stencil and some ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens – I simply taped down a panel of white cardstock to my work surface and then laid the stencil down on top, again securing with a bit of washitape.

I picked some vibrant ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and very roughly brushed through the stencil and onto the cardstock. While the stencil was still in place, I heavily misted the the panel with water until the colours started to blend and bleed. After a few seconds, I carefully lifted the stencil away revealing this awesome background, heat set the panel and trimmed down to slightly smaller than my card base.

I foam mounted the background panel to the card base and moved on to the next step. Using the Stitched Slopes dies, I created a couple of snow banks – I added a touch of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to the hill tops so that they would stand out against the vibrant coloured background. I foam mounted one snow bank straight down onto the card front and stamped a couple of sentiments from Christmas Pageant onto the other.

I foam mounted the second snow bank onto the card front and then die-cut some house and tree elements using the Warm Winter Scene Cover Plate. I adhered these between the snow banks and finished with some sequins from the Snowfall Sequin Mix.

I hope you have as much fun as I did combining stencils, stamps and dies!

Thanks for stopping by!
