Hi all. I’m back today to remind you about our on-going challenge at Creative with Stamps and the theme is Reindeer. So create any Reindeer themed card, and as long as there is stamping somewhere on it, you’re welcome to link it up here, and you might be the lucky winner of 3 digi stamps generously offered by our sponsor this month, Pattie’s Creations.
For today’s post, I’m still having fun with my new sprays and pastes I purchased from Shimmerz Paints last week, to colour through my different stencils.
I first coloured a piece of 250g multi technique paper from Clairfontaine with my Brusho paint powders and spritzes of water. Once it was dry, I spread the incredibly sleek paste called Dazzlerz “Foiled Again”, through the star stencil from Newton’s Nook and let it dry. I didn’t tape the stencil down well enough so a little paste spread underneath the stencil, sorry! I might actually spray some glue on the underside of my stencils and let it dry overnight, so that they stay put all over…
Once the stars were dry, I just spread some Texturez gold paste through my Stamplorations reindeer stencil and created the bumpy effect by lifting my spatula when I was spreading the paste. The thickness of this paste covered whatever was originally there, meaning the stars and painted background!
To create my scallop border, I diecut a silver card stock with MFT scallop rectangle die and adhered a piece of acetate underneath it. I then stamped my sentiment from Penny Black with Stazon ink onto the acetate… I’m not sure how I got the smaller texts crooked when the main text is straight… I then adhered this acetate panel onto my stencilled panel and pasted the whole thing onto a card base.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to hear what you think about my card! Do hop over to the other DTs at Creative with Stamp and leave them some love too!
