Stenciled bookmark – STAMPlorations

Hello there everyone! It´s my turn today to share another mixed media step-by-step tutorial with you. I am very much looking forward to spring already and I have noticed that it shows in my recent work – mainly can be noticed in my color choices. And this project is no exception – lots and lots of happy spring colours peeking here and there. Hope you like it!

Here is what I created:

Take a piece of white plain cardstock (or a big manila tag). Cut into a tag form if you are using a piece of cardstock. Then spray with pink spray ink and let dry or use a heat tool to dry the surface.

Place the Flutterby ARTplorations stencil onto the misted, dry surface and take a palette knife and some Viva Decor Glitter Paste and apply the paste thru the stencil onto the tag with the palette knife. Since the paste is very „grainy“, make sure you wash the stencil after you have used it.

Remove the stencil carefully and let the paste air dry before moving over to the next step.

 Take book themed paper bits and scraps, fussy cut them into right size and start adhering them onto the tag as you like. Add punched/die cut elements like butterflies to go with the background theme and decorate with ribbon, washi tape, brads, music notes and whatever you find suitable for the theme.

Take the Trendy Birds 2 stamps and a piece of old book paper and partially ink the sentiment stamp (only the word wings) and press the inked word into the paper. Fussy cut the word.

Next take the Trendy Feathers 2 stamp set and again only partially ink the stamp sentiment with the word „mind“ on it and press onto a piece of old book paper. Then fussy cut along the edges.

After that take small alpha stickers and build the quote „Books give wings to the mind“ with the partially stamped words and the alpha stickers. I always adhere the alpha stickers with paper glue to make sure they really stick to the surface and don´t come off later. Sometimes the adhesive bedind the alphas is not that strong on it´s own. Finally, add some white ink splatters for additional interest on top of all layers. If you don´t prefer splatters, just skip this step. That´s it. Here are some detail photos of the finished tag.

Hope you get inspired to play with glitter paste and stencils!!! Have fun!!!

Memories Tag – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone! Time for another fun little stencil project for this weeks STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday. This time I created a doodled background tag with lots of droplets on it.

Well, it has sure been raining here this summer, so why not go with the flow (haha!) and use some water droplets. Here is what I did:

Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagThis tag is really easy to make, but the effect is pretty cool:

Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagStep 1: Take a black tag, white gel pen, a stencil of your choice (mine is by STAMPlorations: Droplets Mini) and place the stencil over the tag and start tracing along the droplet patterns thru the stencil with the white pen. More the stencil as you proceed with the doodling. Finally add some details to the droplets to make them look more „real“.

I used some mold to create my own embellishments (by Mold Muse) out of gypsum. Then I misted them (Tattered Angels) in green and blue. The buttons are actually rubber buttosn. They add a fun feel to the project. Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagStep 3: Keep on adding layers until you are satisfied with the end result. I added some book paper, buttons, gypsum mold images, some lace, ribbon and golden yarn.

Stamp a sentiment (STAMPlorations Create stamp set) with black ink onto a piece of old book paper, fussy cut and glue onto the tag. Attach a white lace on top and the tag is finished. Here is the finished result (and some details shots):
