Stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and welcome to the June STAMPlorations stencil challenge reminder post! Whew, what a sentence!! 🙂 Without further ado, here is my take for the June reminder post:

I again created a double spread into my art journal. The theme of these pages is: The Story of Living Things. I bought an old book about „living things“ a year ago from a trift store. I thought now was a good time to start using it!

During the social isolation the nature got a well deserved pause from us humans and this art journal is a „hommage“ on all living things, except us humans.

On this page I used glossy paint and spray ink on the background. It created a faux wooden pattern. On top are clear stickers from STAMPlorations as well as white texture paste applied thru one of my stencils. The birdies on a branch are by STAMPlorations as well as is the stamp set I used to stamp it with. The leaves are hand drawn on old book paper and the text is from the trift store book.

For the second page I used white paint and spray ink on the background to create a resist area. Then I stamped with STAMPlorations stamps onto the background and added a green tinted texture paste thru one of my stencil designs around the edges. The focal point of this page are the flowers, stamped on an old book page, then misted and highlighted with Posca pens.

I really enjoyed creating this inspiration spread for the reminder post! Now is your turn. There is still plenty of time to play along. Remember to follow the rules and have fun with this months challenge!!! Can´t wait to see what you create!

Happy stenciling,

Spring Fling Blog Hop & Linky Party – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone, it´s time for another day of STAMPlorations blog hop & linky party!! Are you ready for some SPRING FLING fun???

Here is my card project as today´s inspiration:

For this card I used the Leaf Prints 3 stencil in combination with the All Blooms stencil. Both available at the STAMPlorations online store. I also added a STAMPlorations clear sticker to the card (from the April Showers set), but only used the word „spring“ on the card, instead of the whole sentiment.

This card is really easy to make. Just place the stencil onto a white card base, apply Distress Inks in green, yellow, orange and pink tones onto the white paper and blackground thru the stencils with a blending brush. Then die cut the flower stencil image with a die cut die, add the flower, clear sticker and the rhinestones. Adhere onto the card base and voilá, the card is done! Very simple, fast and foremost SO MUCH FUN!

Of course there are also prizes involved in this hop (read all details on the STAMPlorations blog here). Three winners will receive a gift code to the store, four winners will get their choice of STAMPlorations product (two various prize categories here!) and one winner will receive a gift code drawn from the entries of the linky party! How cool is that!!?? So many fabulous prizes!! Be sure to comment on both STAMPlorations blog and on each designers blog to be eligible!

Stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today it´s again time to remind you all about the May STAMPlorations stencil challenge and the fact that there is still time to play along with it!

Here is what I created for the reminder post:

For this page I used the Fall Floral Trio and the Make Marks 1 stencils with Distress Paints. For the tag I used the negative image of the Lattice stencil.

I just applied yellow and purple Distress Paint thru the stencils onto the background and let the layers dry. Then I took the word „today“ from the Sweet Cravings stamp set and stamped with black stamp ink. there is also the Newsprint Background Bits #1 clear sticker on the background – cut into smaller strips.

For the tag I misted a Distress Paint covered stencil with water and pressed the image onto a piece of white cardstock. Then I cut the piece into a tag size and added the faux stitching, ribbon and the clear sticker sentiment.

For finishing touches I also added the Buttercups and Butterflies stamp set flowers, fussy cut them and colored those with Distress Crayons.

Now it´s your turn. There is still enough time to play along with the stencil challenge. Hop over to the blog to see the other inspiration projects and then join us! Hope to have inspired you to play along!!!

Happy stenciling,

And now to my project for the hop. Here is my spring themed project, created with STAMPlorations Spring Fling section product, to inspire you today:

I am an absolute tulip lover. They are my very favorite flowers!! There are many more, but tulips just have something that make me smile every single time. And this tulip themed stencil by Shery is just gorgeous!!! I love it. So I had to use it for todays blog post. And this one is also so easy to make. It´s basically just one layer (except for the clear sticker and rhinestones). I placed the stencil directly onto a white card base and took my blending brushes out with Distress Inks. Then I applied the ink with the brush thru the stencil onto the card base using pink, red and green tones. Voilá!

For the sentiment I cut the April showers clear sticker set sticker in pieces and added one part of the sentiment onto the front of the card and the second part inside the card. For additional sparkle I added a few rhinestones. That´s it! Fast, simple, easy & FUN!

Love, love, love this stencil so much!
