New Card Making VIDEO – Simple Layered Stenciling

Good evening my crafty friends and welcome back.  The new collab release for tonight is one of my favorite, PINKFRESH.  So, I did a new Simple Layered Stenciling video with the stamp and stencil set for you tonight.  This set is called Artistic Foliage and it truly is.

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. See below for my full disclosure.

Artistic Foliage Card

I decided to ink blend 4 pretty fall colors for today’s cards and I’m using Pinkfresh Inks.  There is a light and a dark for each color:
Lights:  Warm Buff, Apricot, Ocean Breeze, and Coral Reef

Darks:  Doe, Persimmon, Aqua Marine, and Passion Fruit

As Stamptember is over, this stamp set is no longer available, however I have linked below to a few that will also work for this technique.

How to create the Simple Layered Stenciling Cards:

I decided to do two cards, one portrait and one landscape.  They both have the image stamped in the same place, just the sentiment has moved.

Start by gold heat embossing the image onto a piece of white Hammermill card stock 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.

Next, use the Waffle Flower Grip Mat to hold the paper and the stencil while you add the light colors with small blending brushes.

Then, switch out the stencil for the detailed one and add the darker colors to the center of each flower.

Finally, use the A2 masks from Simon Says Stamp and the light brown ink to create a border around the art piece.

Simple Layering Stencils – Adding Interest and Bling:

Start by leaving the mask in place and splattering the brown and teal ink onto the art piece.

Next, remove the mask, let the ink dry.

Then, place the pieces back into the Misti and stamp the sentiments before attaching to white A2 sized card bases.

Finally, embellish with the Pinkfresh Glitter Drops in Aqua.

Artistic Foliage Card and Matching Envelope:

While you have the mess out, how about creating a matching envelope.  I think these would make beautiful fall wedding cards.  What do you think?
