a happy (stenciled) card...

I loved Kristina's splatter card the other day....I am off on what day is what...but relized I didn't have any stencils with large spaces.  So I made my own. (I'll show you how below)...and then I made this card....

I used Big Bang Confetti and The big, the Bold and the Happy sets from Winnie and Walter.  They are PERFECT for this stencil technique.  I also added in stripes from Be Cool from Avery Elle.

If you follow my blog you may have seen me do this before.  I made THIS card last year using this same vellum technique.  So I took a piece of vellum and die cut 3 stars.  I was able to move the stars around on the card, so I could see right where I wanted them  placed and then stamped on top of them.  I took a makeup sponge and added in the color around the edges.


So that is it for today.  I am learning a ton in this class.  Lots of fun techniques!  What is your favorite  technique so far?

  14. I loved the class and I think my favorite technique used embossing paste but this one is a close second. I tried making my own stencils with acetate which worked fine on my Cricut but not with dies. I never thought to use vellum. You mastered this technique well.

  15. So colorful and a great idea to use a star shape. I'm going to try the vellum, I have a silhouette and I don't think it will cut through acetate so I've been using card stock, but that doesn't work that well.
