Celebrate with a Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to our Quietfire blog hop today.  It's day 3 and I am sharing another new stencil today called the "Dotty Stencil".  I really love this one because there are so many ways that you could use it and today i am sharing a quick technique that i did using Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.


I had lots of fun making this card and it always seems like that when i get out my Tim Holtz inks and a stencil you can't help but have fun being crafty.  (Keep reading for a quick tutorial)




So to make this card you will need a piece of white card stock, Versamark ink, clear embossing powder, sponge applicator and the Dottie Stencil.  Place the stencil over the paper and tape if needed.  Then you can you a sponge applicator and sponge each of the dots with ink.  Add clear embossing powder over the top of all the inked dots and then using a heat tool -heat the product until glossy like you see below.


To add color you can take your pads and gently add a rainbow effect with them on the mat and then spritz the mat with water.  Take your paper with the embossed dots and dip it into the color until you get the effect that you want.  You can even spritz the paper to make it blend more.

When the paper is dry....Trim around it to the edges of the dots and then mat with light pink and then coral colored card stock to finish.  To make the title cut the Celebrate die 2X with red card stock and white.  Cut a strip of vellum that is slightly bigger than the words and center it over the dots and secure it on the back of the card with adhesive.  Glue on the word Celebrate with a thin glue pen.


Cut a white card base slightly bigger than the coral paper and glue to the base.


After i finished i added a bit more spray but wasn't really happy with it.  I think i should have kept it a bit more brighter but it gives me a reason to try it again.  That's the best part of this.


And here is the stencil and the link to the Quietfire store to get one ....

Love the background you created for this pretty card! Awesome stencil! I'll have to try this technique!

Deborah Jennings said...

Such a great card...I like the technique and I love the additional spray. It adds so much interest and texture. Your colours are animated (so happy) and the sentiment so matches your card. Love it. ( and you are making me regret my decision of buying every Stencil but that one....)

Sue LD said...

Very festive with this background.

Mary Holshouser said...

The card is so pretty.

This is a really fun stencil and so versatile! I love this red and white card! Perfect to celebrate Canada Day! :)

Rebecca Billard said...

Love the background. The stencil you used is so great and can be used on any project! Love products that are so versatile.

Barbara Baxter said...

Sharp stencil! Having the circles go from large to small and back to large makes it more interesting than just circles the same size. I also love the sentiment placed on the vellum.

A fun card indeed! The colors you chose really make that stencil pop for a super background and the die says it all!

I would have NEVER thought to use Versamark and embossing powder with a stencil! I think the colorful spritz inking adds so much, too. In addition, you have my creative juices running, Teresa! Since I've commented on a previous post of the blog hop that I love rainbow colors, I can see using the Versamark dots with a variety of colored embossing powders. What a quick and fun card. Thanks for the inspiration!

I LOVE the word dies and the offset of white makes this one stand out! How cool to use the stencil in 'reverse'!

Jutta said...

Lovely monochromatic card.

dorothy harrison said...

It's great to look at another way to use a stencil - using the background as the color! Thank you for the concept and a fun card for so many occasions! It would be great for men - not to frilly or feminine! Love the reds!!!

Cheryll Steinke said...

I love the technique you used. Thanks for the idea.

Jo Ann F. said...

Such a happy card! I like how you used a white cutout behind the colored Celebration - it makes it pop.
