Hello! It’s Natalie here, again, back with the second card I made using the Jordan Alphabet Outline stamp set and a Catherine Pooler Stencil. Every time I use these stamps, I fall a little bit more in love with them! They appear so simple, but they can create a real impact. As always, if you want to try your hand at this make, follow the product links at the bottom of this post.
To make this card follow these steps:
- Cut and fold a 5”x5” card blank from white cardstock and tape its corners down to a firm surface.
- Tape the Catherine Pooler Swoop stencil over the card blank, and use sponge applicators to apply distress inks through the stencil.
- When you’re happy with your blend of colours, use a fine waterproof black pen to squiggle around through the stencil as shown in the picture. This gives the swoops a sense of movement and dimension.
- Remove the stencil, and stamp the word of your choice using the outline stamps and a waterproof black ink such as Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black.
- Smoosh some of the distress inks onto a piece of plastic or pallet. Pick up the colour with your waterbrush and use it to fill in the letters.
- Once the ink has dried, you can add a drop shadow to your letters using your black pen. You can also draw around the card to create a frame.
And that’s it! I think this is a beautifully simple way of creating an effective card. What other words would you put on a card like this?
FYI: the Jordan Alphabet Stamps are also available as solid letters and patterened letters. Just follow the link below to find all three.
Thanks for reading! Catch you later. xxx
