Stencil Hop

Hi and welcome to the latest blog hop at STAMPlorations. This time we are focusing on stencils.
Shery has recently expanded the range to include some larger stencils but I've use one of the regular sized one's with a festive twist, Holiday Words.


For my card I used the stencil as a stamp, covering the wrong side of the words with Versamark then placing it carefully on a white card panel then ran it through my Big Shot. Careful not to smudge the ink I removed the stencil then added silver EP. The bauble was die cut from the panel then I cut a few more from white scrap to make it stand away from the base. I glued them all together then inked with DI Salty Ocean and put it back into the embossed panel. The ribbon from my stash was added then the panel was trimmed and added to a white base card.

The ribbons, colours and tree decorations in the picture were my inspiration.

  4. What a clever technique...I have to try it. Never used a stencil to emboss the negative of it and not on a big shot too
