Stencil Theme Week

Pretty Pink Posh

November 14, 2019

Good Morning Friends! Today I am on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog sharing a festive New Year’s card that combines a few new products along with a few “old” favorites. 

Have you been wanting to give stencils a try? Now is a great time to stock up and grab a few favorites. All the Stencils are 15% of during this theme week!

For my card, I started by creating my background. I used the Fireworks Stencil along with Gold Glitz Glitter Gel. I lightly sprayed Pixie Spray to the back of my stencil to help hold it in place and added the gel directly over the stenci with a palette knife. *Make sure you wash your stencil with warm soapy water as soon as possbile, you do not want the gel to dry onto the stencil. 

When you remove the stencil, you are left with a beautiful background. Look at the details and all of the sparkle!

I set my background aside to dry and began working on the rest of my card. I started by stamping the set of penguins from the Penguin Pals Stamp Set along with the party accessories from the Happy New Year Stamp Set with a Copic friendly black ink. I colored the images and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. These little penguins just make me smile, and they are perfect for New Year’s...all dressed and ready to celebrate!

Next, I used the Scallop Circle Die and die cut the inside piece from black cardstock and the frame from gold glitter cardstock. I stamped my sentiment from the Happy New Year Stamp Set with Versamark ink and heat set the sentiment with gold embossing powder. I inlaid the two pieces back together and attached it to my card panel along with my penguins. Lastly, I added a few sequins from the Celebration Confetti Mix to finish my card.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I inspired you to give stencils a try. There are so many techniques and mediums you can use with stencils to create amazing backgrounds and card elements. Now is a great time to purchase a few stencils and take advantage of the 15% off sale.
Enjoy your day!
