iStencil

Hi Everyone,

 I have some exciting news!!!! I now work with iStencils to design cards for them! I was over the moon, when they asked me to do that!!! 

I absolutely love stencils and their stencils particularly appeal to me. I have that soft spot for graphic design and there is an abundance of graphic stencils at their site. 

You may have seen my last card I made with an iStencil, if not you can see it HERE. This is a different one that I got on my shopping spree with them......


I finally got over my embossing paste fear and mixed myself some color. I did not completely mix the colors together, I liked the different shades I got. I used that gorgeous iStencil and overlaid it with a heart mask, that I cut out of a large post it note. Smeared the paste over it and let it dry.

27-00002 R SC

Splattered some metallic blue spray ink. Let it dry.....
I then added the LOVE die cut, heat embossed the YOU, mounted it on foam tape and gold thread behind.

And if you hurry there is a great coupon for you to use at iStencil, but today is the last day...


Other supplies: Papertrey Wet Paint die, STAMPlorations  Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments

I am playing in:
Stempelkueche - from the heart
Craft Stamper - Stencilling
The Male Room - Valentine
CASology - Love

   
Shopping!
