Happy New Year all,
I hope everyone is staying safe.
The Paper Players kicks off their new year of challenges today with a fun theme challenge from LeAnne. We are to use something new on our project. That isn't hard for me, LOL. I ordered the entire new line of layered stencils from Pink Fresh Studio before Christmas. Last night after dinner, I pulled a couple of them out to give them a try. These are FREAKIN' FUN! And addicting! Did I mention FUN! Seriously, if you want to try something different from stamping, try some layered stencils. These particular stencils are super easy to line up the layers using alignment marks on each stencil.
The first ones that I played with are the Daisy Wreath Layered Stencil set and the Simple Plaid Stencil set. I ended up making a set of six note cards with various colors and greetings. The inks that I used are either Gina K Designs or SU. The greetings are from various Gina K Designs stamp sets. Blending brushes makes this process pretty easy.
Here is a close up of one of the cards. The background is made using SU Flirty Flamingo and Gina K Designs Sweet Mango inks on the front of a white card base. After making the daisy wreath, I cut it out using the corresponding die. The greeting is stamped on another piece of white card stock and cut out with a Spellbinders circle die. It is glued to the back of the wreath using liquid glue. After the glue had dried, I used Dimensionals to pop it all up on the card.
