A set of cards and another simply stencils idea

Hi there! I wanted to share with you a few quick cards I created using some pieces I had left over from my previous project I created with the Frog Dog Studio May Kit.

For my previous project I had mixed some light blue molding paste together and used it for the second art journal page. Since I had some paste over I wiped it thru the typewriter stencil onto a piece of white cardstock and used it for the “hello” card. I also sprayed some “New Sprout” spray ink over the masked paper to make it more colorful. Then I just fussy cut it and glued it down on a card base, added the stamped sentiment and some black color splatters and the card was all done.

For the bird card I used a piece of vellum paper (also from the kit). I first placed the vellum over a dry embossing folder, then rubbed/scratched with oil pastel pens over the paper to get the pattern onto the paper. After that I just stamped a bird (Dina Wakley “Scribbly Birds”) with black Archival Ink onto the vellum, fussy cut it and glued it down onto the card. The rest I just doodled onto the card.

For the 3rd card I again took a piece of vellum paper and made the pattern as follows:

I first colored a layer with different oil pastel color tones pretty randomly.

After that I colored a second layer with a black oil pastel pen on top of the other layer, placed a leaf stencil (by The Crafter´s Workshop) over the layer and scratched with a sharp plastic tool the black layer off around the stencil lines. Then I just repeated this phase as long as I had the pattern I wanted. After that I just wripped the paper quite randomly around the edges and glued it down to a card base and stamped a sentiment. Fast and easy and reminds me of my first grade art class at school :).

Hope you have enjoyed this little “Simply stencils” idea and get inspired to try it out yourself! Have fun!

xoxo, Sanna

4 Gedanken zu “A set of cards and another simply stencils idea

  1. Clever cookie – TFS these fab ideas….LOOOVE the typewriter one half off the page & the oil pastels…took me right back to school doing those ‘underwater’ sea scenes:):)

  2. Love these but the one with oil pastels really took my eye, I have oil pastels only because they remind me of my childhood, I used to love the smell but they don’t have that anymore – now I know what I can use them for, thanks Sanna.
