PLAYING WITH STENCILS TECHNIQUES

 


                     

Hello, Stampers!
    Did you know that you can use your stash of stencils and/or Decorative Masks as embossing folders?  All of the above patterns were created using stencils and my Big Shot.  And, in some cases, depending if you want to add a heavy coating of Distress Ink, you can even get a transfer image at the same time, like the top photo.  I haven't tried this yet with SU! inks, but I will.  It is a simple technique, but not quick.

STAMPIN' UP!® BOTANICAL BUTTERFLY GALA and GRAPEFRUIT GROVE FOIL - February 2019 STAMP CAMP

Hello, Stampers!
    I've got three versions of this card to share today, using different embossing folders and a variation of butterflies.  The front and center above is my favorite because I like this embossed background the best - it is the new Dot to Dot TIEF in the Occasions Catalog, p.25.  Below are the other two.  I imagine a background with the new Flower Garden Dynamic TIEF (SAB 2) would be gorgeous, as well.


Basket Weave TIEF

    
Swirls & Curls TIEF
     DO YOU NOTICE ANYTHING ELSE different about one of these samples?  The butterflies on the card with the Basket Weave background were not stamped, they were punched out of the Botanical Butterfly FREE DSP!  Can it get any easier?  Instructions are below (on my blog).

Happy Stampin’!
