Hey crafty friends! It's Amanda from Twiddler's Nook today with a couple of cards and a tag featuring one new stencil that you get for free with a qualifying purchase in the shop! It's so cool!
I started today by taking a 6x6 piece of white cardstock and inked it up very messy and random with distress oxide inks in tea dye, gathered twigs and ground espresso. Once I liked the look of the panel and spritzed it with water and then flicked black acrylic paint on the whole thing. After it was dry I spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through the coffee stencil. I removed the stencil, cleaned up and set the panel aside to dry.
Once the panel was dry, I heated up my laminator and ran the whole panel through with copper deco foil in a craft & carrier sheet. Then I trimmed the text blocks and rainbow apart using my paper trimmer. I adhered the text blocks to black panels giving them a small border and popped that up with foam tape on white panels.
For this card, I inked up a teal A2 panel with the new Latte Love stencil and white pigment ink before adding the foiled layers to the center.
For the second card, I did the same thing with the foiled panel, adding the white and black mat layers before inking up the teal panel with the Lava Lamp stencil and darker teal ink for a tone-on-tone contrast.
Bonus! This stencil has a third image that is a cup ring/coffee bean rainbow! It's so fun and different! This time I decided to add it to a tag that I could tie to a box of K-cups to share with a friend.
I cut the large tag from textured teal cardstock and the stitched layer from white. I attached the Perfectly Plaid stencil with Pixie Spray and inked it up with Dusty Concord distress oxide ink. Since I pounced my sponge dobber instead of using a brush I got this cool distressed looking texture. I splattered the panel with watered down Cracked Pistachio distress oxide ink to tie in the teal color and adhered the tag layers together.
Using my MISTI I stamped the sentiment from Brewtiful on the lower center and popped the rainbow up with foam squares. To finish it off I threaded some ribbon through the hole and tied it with twine.
