Thanks Card with Stencilling by Alison

posted in: alison, Blog | 0

Hi it’s Alison, and it’s my turn on the blog today. I wanted to showcase some of the lovely new products that have arrived at The Little Paper Tree recently. So I chose one of the new stencils and ink from Catherine Pooler and teamed it up with one of the new Honey Bee stamp sets.


To begin I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Card into a 14cm square using my Tim Holtz 8.5 guillotine. Using masking tape I masked off the bottom third. I then used my Tonic Mini Blending Brush to lightly blend Catherine Pooler It’s A Boy ink over the card. Next I placed the Catherine Pooler Swoop stencil over this area and again using the blending brush and the same ink I appied ink through the stencil to create areas of darker ink.


After that I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform to stamp the word thanks from Honey Bee’s Hello Gorgeous stamp set. I used my platform so that I could stamp more than once to ensure the sentiment was crisp. I used Catherine Pooler Midnight ink.


Still using my stamping platform and another piece of Bristol Smooth card I chose an image from the Hello Gorgeous set and stamped it with the Midnight ink pad. I coloured the image with the listed prisma colouring pencils. I then fussy cut out the image.


Using a 15cm square card blank, I matted a 14.5cm square of blue American Crafts smooth primaries card onto it, then added the topper I had created. I always use Tombow mono liquid glue as this allows time to straighten everything before it dries. I then added the floral image using double sided foam tape.
