May Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to the STAMPlorations May Stencil Challenge reveal. It´s again an new, fresh, month and that always means that new challenges go live on STAMPlorations! I hope I can inspire you to join in with us at the Stencil challenge this month with my happy card.

For the May challenge I played with my Gelli Arts gel plate and my stencils. I love doing these mixed media backgrounds using the stencils. It´s always so exciting to see what kind of results come of out gel printing play time. This is also a really fun way of playing with ones stencils, by the way :).

For this one I used the Peacock Feathers stencil from my stencil line at STAMPlorations in combination with a gelli plate and skin toned and orange toned acrylic paints. After creating the background I did a few smaller prints with a set of small square gel plates and Art Marks 3 stamp set by STAMPlorations. The then became the background for the stamped flower images. Which were stamped with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and black stamp ink.

After that I just fussy cut the images and created the flower cluster onto the card. For finishing touches I added a Clear Sticker (also by STAMPlorations) sentiment.

That´s it! Now is again your turn to get creative with stencils. Please remember to play by the rules!! They are always listed at the end of the challenge and are really simple to follow, so remember, if you want to be in for the prizes, play according to the rules :).

Follow your heart – card

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´m stopping by to share a mixed media card with you again. This one is full of colour and has a fun paper doll on it. All in all a very easy card to make, but still so much fun!

I´ve misted the background paper with Dina Wakley gloss sprays in 4 different colours. After it was dry, I added a few splatters of whit eon top and then decorated with card with a Tim Holtz paper doll, who has silver rays behind her hat and a big rhinestone heart.

Her being a girl scout I found the sentiment „follow your heart“ more than suitable for this card. It can be given away for a graduation or a childs move to college or leaving home and pursuing their own dreams. I so enjoy making this type of cards!!

Hoping your week is a good one!

April stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello and welcome to the STAMPlorations April Stencil Challenge Reminder reveal post! If you haven´t played along with us as the STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge yet, there is still time to do so :). I hope you inspire you to play along by sharing my contribution for the reminder post too!

This is my card for today´s post. I´ve used the Abstract Prehistoric Life stencil from my stencil line to create the two-toned background pattern with acrylic paints. On top of that there is a layer of Glimmer Mist in lime green.

And on top of the mist layer there is some random stamping in grey and black. The stamp is also by STAMPlorations and called „Art Marks 3„.

After creating the „background paper“ I adhered it onto a card base and added some beloved and old Sassafras stickers for decor in a cluster. On top of that I adhered a STAMPlorations Clear Sticker. That´s it!

Now is again your turn! Please make sure to follow the rules (they are listed at the end of the original challenge post). And now, be sure to check out everyone´s inspirational projects (we always hope they get your mojo going) and then do join in on some stencil fun with us!!!

And like always, feel free to use my discount code upon checkout at the STAMPlorations store for 20% off your order :).

January Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations January Stencil Challenge yet? No? Don´t worry – there is still enough time to join in. So speaking of joining in, the DT girls have prepared another inspiration post for you guys.

Here is my take for it:

The background was created using Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays. I love the effect they create!!! Love, love, love it! And on top I´ve added some stenciled pattern with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I used one of my new stencils, called Abstract April Showers. And on top for decor I added one of Tim Holtz paper dolls and a handwritten sentiment, made by my dear friend Lizzy.

This is the reminder post for the January 2021 stencil challenge and if you haven´t joined in with us yet, I sure hope you do. There is still plenty of time to play along with us. Let´s make this a great year project wise and get those PHD´s (projects half done) done and dusted. And if it has stenciling on it, you are good to go and submit it to this challenge :)!

Remember to play by the rules (listed at the end of the challenge post) to be eligible for the prizes!!! And other than that, have fun creating!!! Cannot wait to see what you make! Also, feel free to take advantage of my personal discount code at STAMPLorations:

Happy stenciling,
