Hello all and HAPPY THURSDAY!!! LeeAnn here to flaunt an amazing die, stencil and some inks from LDRS Creative. All products mentioned are currently available at the LDRS Shop.
I started this card with the awesome Folk Art Slimline Layering Stencil Set. I am a sucker for a layered stencil and this one is also available in the A2 size for double the fun. I ink blended the layers using three LDRS Creative hybrid inks; Pink Tutu, Soft Kisses and Lipstick Jungle. If you have never tried the LDRS Creative Hybrid inks, what are you waiting for? These blend like butter and so so smooth. They are also highly pigmented, so you get more bang for your buck. Each color can reach a different saturation just by blending more & more ink. You could really do this entire stencil with one ink color by blending each layer darker. It is an amazing quality product that I highly recommend.
Next I spritzed the stenciled card base with some glimmer spray to add a little sparkle. There is never enough sparkle for me! I then die cut three card panels with the Folk Art Slimline Cover Plate Die. I layered the card panels for some added dimension and added a gold glimmer cardstock (middle cut out). I glued them all down over the stenciled image. The stencils and dies work fantastically together and line up so easily.
I then added some crystal glaze in each of the diecut openings to give the illusion of stained glass. It dries crystal clear and looks like mini glass panels within the card. So pretty and also enhances the sparkle of the glimmer spray.
Lastly, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto another strip of the gold cardstock. The sentiment is from the Encouragement Stack Stamp Set and has a coordinating die. I reach for these ALL the time!!! I finished the card off with some fun gold embellishments to add a little more sparkle and shine, because sparkle is LIFE!!
I hope you enjoyed this fun card and I would love to see your creations using this stencil and die set! Be sure to post your creations at the LDRS Facebook Fan Page.
