Of course, by now, you might have noticed that there are new fun things in the store, such as STENCILS! And I'm so excited, because I use the brand new Plaid stencil on a one-layer card that makes it super-duper easy to create, in like, 5 minutes top!
I kid you not. I was in desperate need of a Fall-themed card, and last minute, of course! But my favourite products were still on my craft desk after working on an awesome 10 cards-1 kit video (available on the LDRS Creative Youtube channel!), so I decided to time myself and see what I could come up with quickly. Anybody into one-layer cards, too? The fun thing is, they can be super technical and totally help stretching your supplies!
To create this card, I first created a regular A2 cardbase with a 4 1/4"x11" piece of sturdy white cardstock, folded in two from the top. Setting it aside, I cut a piece of stamping mask paper with the largest die from the Happy Days Circle set and placed it right in the center of the card front. Then, I placed the card on a craft mat, covered it with my
Plaid stencil and stuck everything in place with some tape, so that nothing would move while inking. Next was the inking part with the new mini ink cubes! I couldn't be more excited with these; they are SO juicy, that you can easily blend them together in no time, for a stunning effect. To get the same look I did, you need the entire Jewelry Beads mini ink cubes set and some ink applicator. TIP: make sure to go over the die-cut, as to ensure there is enough ink in-between the little spots.
And then the magic happened, when I removed carefully first the stencil, then the
stamping mask paper die-cut. That gorgeous background was only asking for a fabulous sentiment (from the Happy Fall Sentiments set) stamped with Raven ink (also available in mini version within the Cobblestone set) and a few iridescent sequins to complete it. Easy Peasy!
