Soar - Letter Live Broadcast from July 11 2019

For our regular Facebook Live broadcast the other day, we created this card by stenciling, stamping and diecutting!
You can see the broadcast here:
(For some reason this appears vertical sometimes and horizontal other times!  So confused! And sorry!)

Here is what we used:

A Way With Words Products from Elizabeth Craft Designs:

Feathers stencil  or at Elizabeth Craft Designs:

·       Coordinating cardstocks: Bazzill Navajo, Core’dinations Scotch
·       Distress Inks: Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Mustard Seed
·       VersaMagic: Turquoise Gem
·       Makeup Brushes
·       Glue Dots
·       3M Removable tape
·       Stamp Positioner


1.    Cut a piece of Specialty Stamping paper in half.  Use removable tape to adhere one edge of the stencil to the Specialty Stamping Paper near one side. Use a pencil to mark inside the 4 registration holes at the corners of the design.  This registers the position of the stencil so we can move it and keep it lined up.
2.    Blend the Distress colours in each of the down feather cutouts.  When you’re happy with that, move the stencil to the right placing the holes on the left of the stencil over the pencil marks to the right.  Continue stenciling the down feathers.  Allow to dry for a bit.
3.    Trim the stenciled paper to approximately 5.5 x 3.75”.
4.    Use VersaMagic Turquoise Gem to stamp the sentiment (positioned as shown in the photo) using a stamp positioner with multiple light impressions rather than one heavy one.  This maintains the thicks and thins of the lettering.
5.    Diecut Soar once from turquoise cardstock and once from yellow cardstock.  Adhere the diecuts together so the yellow becomes the dropshadow.  Mount to stenciled panel with Micro Glue Dots.
6.    Cut a slightly larger mat from turquoise cardstock and another slightly larger from yellow. Adhere the three layers together.
7.    Cut a 5x7” tent-fold card base from turquoise cardstock.
8.    Adhere these panels to the card base with Scrapbook Adhesives Foam Squares.
