How to use coloring stencils

Coloring stencils are becoming more popular and they are a great tool to have without breaking your craft budget. They’re really easy to use whilst creating effortlessly beautiful cards in no time. In the video, I show you how to use coloring stencils to create this elegant card using the new Altenew Sisters of the Heart stamp, die, and stencil, but you can easily apply the same technique to any you have in your stash. 

This video is part of a fun video hop & giveaway with Altenew, check out the details at the end of the post for more details. 

Make sure you check out the end of the post for more details on the video hop and how to enter the giveaway!

Creating the floral image

Start off by stamping the largest floral from the Sisters of the Heart stamp set.  Next, position stencil 2 over the leaves and ink blend Garden Party ink through the stencil. The packaging shows you the stencil layer you require for each step.

The leaves have two layers to them; for the second layer with stencil 3, use Deck the Halls ink lightening your pressure towards the tips of the leaves. For the blooms, you will need stencil 1 – this has all the elements for the floral, just position for each layer you require. 

The packaging also shows you the points of the floral/leaves on each stencil that help you align the stencil design up. For the flowers, I used Stone Blue ink and Cove Blue ink. After the coloring is complete, die-cut with the coordinating die

Assembling the card

To create the background, dry emboss a white card panel with the Mod Squares 3D embossing folder and add Metallic Gold paint splatter with the Altenew Metallic Watercolour pan set. Foam mount the floral onto the front of the card.

Lastly, add a heat embossed sentiment from the Inky Boquet stamp set and embellished with clear sequins.
