Stencils & Cards

Stencils come in many patterns and sizes and
 Echo Park Paper
has the cutest around! 
 I have two ideas on how to use stencils on cards,
along with the “The Story of Family” Collection.

 For the first card, I’ve taken a scrap piece of white textured cardstock,
 the “Branches Stencil”, washi tape and chalks. I started with a yellow
 chalk and chalked all of the branches.  Then I added a light green and
 dark green to the base of the branches.

 I die-cut two 2.5” circles from the chalked area and matted them with a larger, 
3” circle of diagonal striped paper. 


The embellishments were kept simple with just a few stickers and decorative
 brads added around the edge of the circles.
 
The second card is made up of the “Leafy Border Stencil” and dark green chalk ink. 
 For the base, I cut a rectangle from off-white cardstock that’s just a bit larger
 than the 3X4 journal card.


 I taped the stencil down over the cardstock with washi tape.
 The portion of the leaf border was inked and then the stencil was adjusted so that
 the pattern could continue around the top and bottom edges.

 The journal card was attached to the center of the leaf frame with foam adhesive.


One of the scroll sentiment stickers was cut in half and added to the top
 and bottom of the frame.
With stencils you can customize your own unique look to cards or other craft projects! 
 Try other types of mediums such as modeling or stencil paste, crayons, etc. and have fun!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
