Gel Press Techniques with Stencils
Hello there, Christine here with a card showing one of the backgrounds I made using the Art Deco stencil and a gel press.  The background I made for the card felt almost like the Northern Lights, so I added some images from the Oh Deer stamp set to create a finished scene.

Frosty Box card

Frosty Box card

Hi there, Christine here with a box card using the Snow Buddies stamp and Art Deco stencil.  I used the stencil to create a glittery background that I then die cut to make the box card more interesting.

I first created a background piece with the Art Deco stencil, by ink blending distress oxide inks in faded jeans, shaded lilac and speckled egg splotched onto a gel press with the stencil on it.  I then removed the stencil and placed a piece of cardstock onto the gel press.  I let the paper dry and then put the stencil back on and put glitter paste over all the colored areas. A video will be coming out soon that shows how I did this.  I then used the dies from the box card die set to created little decorative panels for the card.

 I die cut the main box pieces from Neenah solar white 110lb cardstock and put them together.  I added the decorative panels that I had made with the Art Deco stencil, as well as a sentiment from the Snow Buddies stamp.

I then colored some images from the Snow Buddies stamp set with some copic markers, Bunny (W3, W0, B66, B63) Snow Bunny (WO, E37, G24, G28) and Hedgehog (E37, E34, E31, B66, B63) and adhered them as shown above.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Welcome, I hope that you are as excited about the new release as I am. So many fun sets that absolutely make me smile that are more for adult recipients. Today I'm sharing the new stamp set called Blitzened that I have paired with a stencil called Art Deco.

First I die cut an A2 panel with a stitched rectangle die I had in my stash and taped off the outer border. I then ink blended with distress oxide ink in tattered rose over the Art Deco stencil and immediately added sparkle paste (Couture Creations) over the inked areas. I set the panel aside to dry overnight and immediately washed the stencil. In the photo below, you can see the amount of texture and shine that it provides to the card!

In the meantime I die cut all the images & sentiments from the Blitzened stamp set and did some simple copic coloring (R59 & R46 for the candy cane & berries, G28 & G24 for the leaves, B000 and B0000 for the glass, W3 and W0 for the mouse). I love that the image has so much on it and tells a story that you really don't need anything else to complete the card!

The Art Deco stencil design creates so much interest, but not in an overwhelming way, so that you eyes move all over the card, but the focal point still clearly remains on the mouse.

Thank you for stopping by!
