Stencils From A Thinlit
Have you ever created stencils using your Thinlit dies? So often we get stuck in our ways and sometimes it’s OK to break out and try something new.
My card share today is just that, breaking out and being daring! Well, OK not too daring. The inspiration for this card came from Nicole Tugrul.
Making stencils is so easy. What do you do with the card stock or papers that you have left when cutting out a stamped image with your thinlits. Think outside the box and think “stencil”.
Stamps: Holly Jolly Greetings.
Ink/Markers: Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo, VersaMark.
Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Silver Glimmer.
Accessories: Big Shot, Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Delicate Ornament Thinlits, Silver Embossing Powder, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Rhinestone Jewels.
This card is simple and yet pretty and you could create or many in a short period of time. This time of year gets so busy, it’s nice to be able to create something that doesn’t take a lot of time.
I had used the Delicate Ornament Thinlits dies to create another card and so the cutout portion was laying on my work space waiting to become stencils. I was lucky that I spied it. Usually I can’t spy anything on my work space (LOL). So I grabbed it, placed it on a piece of Whisper White card stock and started sponging with Blackberry Bliss ink. And, yes it is a bit messy with the Blackberry Bliss. I seem to have a love-hate relationship with this ink. It usually ends up everywhere.
After sponging the ornament stencil, I stamped the snowflakes and stars with VersaMark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing powder. The large snowflake was stamped twice using Island Indigo ink. The Blackberry and Island Indigo make a great colour combination. When sponging the ornament, I did not put on a lot of ink so that I could over stamp the snowflake and you could see them clearly.
Finally, I added stars punched from Silver Glimmer paper using the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accent punch, and die cut the word “Peace” from Silver Glimmer paper.
