I have called the technique Stamping Stencilling.
- It consists of stamping over the stenciled images and through the negative areas of the stencil while attached to the cardstock.
- After doing this, you will get ink over the stencil and you can place a piece of cardstock over it to create a second panel with the negative image.
By using XL Rose Bouquet stencil ( 6″x 9″ inches stencil ) you can get 4 panels from one single ink application.
In the video below I show you how I do this…
So that’s how we can create beautiful backgrounds or costume paper for any papercraft project using XL Rose Bouquet stencil or any similar.
The Card Making Process
- To make these cards, I used the half on an A4 sheet of Neenah 110 Lb cardstock.
- Then, I used Spellbinders Best Craft Tape to temporarily stick the XL Rose Bouquet stencil to the paper.
- `Using differnet sizes of blending brushes, I applied Distress Inks through the Stencil.
- Antique Linen, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, and Blueprint Sketch over the flowers.
- Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the leaves.
- Without removing the stencil, I used Deco Diamonds Background stamp and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to stamp over.
- The panel was done so I removed the inked stencil from the cardstock.
To make the second panel…
- I placed the inked stencil over a piece of paper to avoid ink smearing and I sprayed a little bit of water over it.
- Then, I placed the other half of the A4 sheet of cardstock.
- Using a brayer I made pressure over the paper to transfer the negative image of the stencil to that piece of paper.
- I used a heat tool to dry the paper.
- To decorate all the projects in this post, I used Detail Meadow Butterfly die set by Simon Says Stamp.
- I die cut the butterflies out of vellum, silver mirror cardstock, and gold mirror cardstock.
Hot Foiled Banners
- I added hot foiled banners made using Yana’s Tiny Words Glimmer Plates, Gold Foil, the Spellbinder’s glimmer hot system in combination with the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.
XL Rose Boquet Stamped Stencilled Backgrounds
For these cards, I die-cut 2 pieces out of the stamped stencilled panel.
I used the largest die from the Wonky Rectangles die set to add a decorative edge to the panels.
To finish, I added a butterfly topper and I adhered the panels onto a C6 top folding card base.
For the card below I used the negative stencilled panel.
XL ROSE BOQUET Negative Stamped Stencilling
For this C6 card, I used the negative stencilled image made by placing the cardstock over the inked stencil.
- I die-cut a heart using a die from Staking Hearts die set and I glued it over a silver embossed panel.
- I also used a butterfly topper made using Detail Meadow Butterfly die set and smooth white cardstock.
- At the back of the butterfly, I added another butterfly die-cut out of a piece of inked paper I got left from a previous experiment.
- The little banner is also hot foiled and it was made using Yana’s Tiny Words Glimmer Plates, and Gold Hot Foil.
It was very challenging to take pictures of this card as It is ultra-shiny due to the silver mirror cardstock used for the background panel.
To emboss the silver paper, I used a plate that has been discontinued!! Sorry. The plate is called Embossing Texture Plate Cora by Simon Says Stamp.
XL Rose Bouquet Stencilled Mini Box
To share extra ideas, I also used one of the negative stencilled panels to make the lid of a small box.
The box measures 3″ x 2-3/4″ inches and it is 3/4″ of an inch deep.
- To make it, I used a 5-1/2 ” x 4-1/4″ inches piece of stencilled paper and I scored a 3/4″ of an inch to shape the lid.
- For the box base, I used a 5-7/16″ x 4-3/16″ inches piece of white smooth cardstock and I also scored at 3/4″ of an inch.
***The piece of cardstock used to make the box base should be 1/16″ shorter than the one used to make the lid to guarantee a perfect fit.
That’s all for today.
