Then I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using Simon Hurley’s dye ink Remember Me, and “Happy Holidays” in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink. I thought these colors went well with the backgrounds.
To complete the tags, I used some matching colors trimming and added some sparkly gems!
Ashley chose the largest size Paper Positioner and used a 7 1/2″ piece of white cardstock as her canvas. To begin, she blended alternating colours of Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, and Chipped Sapphire on just one of the stencil (Barrel 2) from the Sacred Lotus Stencil set, jumping from one heart symbol to another (ie. turning her stencil at 22.5° at each rotation); while leaving one out of every four rotations blank to later position her heat embossed petals.
After she’s done all her ink blending, she used Versamark ink and added silver embossing powder on the remaining petals. I just love the shimmery look with the heat embossing!
She then added a metallic silver string to make the sentiment look like a hanging ornament which is perfect since this image was designed three dimensionally as if the sentiment was engraved on a sphere!
For the sparkly touch, she added teal, white and aqua sequins, and teal dots using Glass Effects Gel in a teal color.
Mass producing X’mas cards is sure made super simple with this stencil!
Thank you Bobbi! Your card is so bright and beautiful!
To create this gorgeous background, she combined the new Stencils 360°TM tool with the Origami Shuriken Stencils 360°TM and ink blended using a trio of Distress Oxide Inks, including Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron at 15° turning interval. She masked off the bottom half of her card during the blending process to make sure only half of the full 360° pattern is shown.
