Happy Release Day!! So happy to share with you some projects I created for the Picket Fence Studios March Release AND a chance to win a $15 gift card for shopping at PFS. Yep, it is a great day!
I am going to get right to it and introduce the new stamp set called Color Can Heal the Soul. This is a pretty paint look image that has beautiful sentiments that you are sure to love. As soon as I saw the stamp set, I thought about creating a coffee cup that I want to have! And even better, Picket Fence Studios has just the die for the job. I inked the paint drip image with a rainbow of colors and then stamped onto white card stock.
Then using the die, I cut out a coffee cup. I thought this sentiment from the set was just what I would put on my morning cup. In fact, I would love this to BE my morning cup for coffee!! To add a bit of texture, I embossed using the Random Dots Stencil. I love using a stencil for embossing…a great way to stretch these must have products! I went into my stash of sequins and started grabbing colors until I found the combination I liked to finish the card.
Next up, I wanted to focus completely on another stencil. A new stencil called Oceans of Fish. As I debated pulling out the Glimmer Paste (and believe me, I almost did), I chose another version of shine for this one. I thought the fish would be amazing in foil! So I grabbed Transfer Gel (which acts pretty much like embossing paste except a little thinner) and applied it to a watercolored panel.
Let the gel dry for at least an hour and then add Deco Foil Transfer Sheets on top with a heat laminator (or foiling machine). I love the shine you get! I added some Embossing Glitter for the sentiment to add to the shine. With all that is going on (more texture and shine in person too), I thought it best to leave this one cleaner.
I hope you like the sets I am featuring today. I’ll be back over the upcoming days and weeks to showcase more of the release! But now…the GIVEAWAY! In your comments, tell me your favorite way to use a stencil (because I always need more ideas). That’s it. Comment and share your idea. I’ll randomly choose one winner and announce on March 19th. Thanks so much for stopping in today! See you soon.
Those are both awesome, Jennifer! What a great way to showcase this set (that needs to come live at my house).
I don’t really have a favorite way to use a stencil. I think maybe using them on my gelli plate is most usual way of using them.
I like dabbing them with different colors and build texture on them, especially with floral projects. Sometimes I finish up with glossy accents in a few places too.
Adorable cards! Nothing new but I love using Embossing paste with stencils. Thanks for the chance to win.
Awesome cards! I love the way you used the Color Can Heal the Soul stamp on the mug!
My favorite way to use stencils is with embossing paste. I love the texture and design it adds to a card!
I’d have to say embossing paste or sponging as a background. Love what you have donecwith these products. The stencil would be perfect with some sets i have!!!
Beautiful cards, Jennifer! I’m pretty straight forward with stencils – blend a design on a distressed oxide colorful background or just create a background with them. I like using different pastes, too.
Glimmer Paste on stencils has been my go to lately. However, I just this week bought some Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Deco Foil but have not used it yet, ummmm – Can you guess what I’m going to do first LOL, thank you for sharing both of your (very cool) cards and for the inspiration!!
Lovely sentiments – and so perfect the way you have shown each of them off!!
