Hello and Happy Monday,
I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. Mine was nice and uneventful, just how I like them. We did some shopping, although I didn't buy anything, and attended the first Little League Baseball game of the season, and of course, I did some stamping.
Last Monday, Gina's Stamp and Chat Live was on a technique called Double Stenciling. It looked super fun and the cards she made were beautiful, so I thought I'd give it a try. I made four cards using mostly Gina K Designs supplies. I threw in a few items from other companies too.
The April Monthly Mix Challenge on the Gina K blog is to use a die cut sentiment, and a couple of these cards fit right in.
Here are the four cards together.
Here they are individually.
The technique is to use one stencil with card stock and another stencil with velum. On the card base, die cut a shape and glue the stenciled vellum so the reverse side is up. Then pop this piece up over the stenciled card stock. This gives the double images through the die cut shape. I've attached Gina's video above if you'd like to see how it's done.
Thanks for looking in,
