Hello Friends and welcome back to my blog! The new release from Simon Says Stamp, Make Magic, is live today!! Have you checked it out? Oh my word, SO many awesome things! For today’s project, I’m featuring a double stenciling technique using the new SSS Slimline Floral Builder Stencil! So let’s get right into it, shall we?
To be honest, the first attempt at this card was not a success! And, sometimes that happens! It’s unfortunate when it does happen, but sometimes it does! I didn’t get a good impression with the stencil using the gel. To tackle this situation, I opted for using the trusty Pixie Spray! Ok, now that you know the back story, I’ll tell ya how I created the card!
I began by trimming a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and adhering the SSS Fading Tiny Dots Stencil to it using masking tape. I smooshed and smeared the VersaMark Ink pad over that, getting a good coating. Once the stencil was removed, I sprinkled SSS Detail White Embossing Powder over it, and heat set it. The next step was the rainbow ink blending, and I used Distress Oxide inks Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Broken China.
This is where the error in my ways surfaced the first time, as I only adhered the SSS Slimline Floral Builder Stencil with masking tape. To correct on my second attempt, I gave that stencil a good spray of Pixie Spray and positioned it atop my rainbow panel, securing it with masking tape, just to be sure! I then, added black Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel, because I was going for a silhouette look against my rainbow background.
I wanted to add a black frame, so I opted for the PinkFresh Studio Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles to achieve that. I cut the SSS Script Hello sentiment twice from black cardstock and cut the shadow portion once from Neenah 110, adhering all of those together using liquid glue.
I added the frame to my rainbow panel using foam tape for dimension, and I added the sentiment using glue. This was then adhered to my card base, which is Neenah 110lb as well, using the new SSS Dot Tape Runner.
That finishes this project! It was a super fun one to make, except for the mishap stenciling my first time! Live and learn! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire Make Magic release! Have a wonderful and stay awesome!
