It was time for a Picture tutorial. I just had to show you a really cool card that I cased! It was from our Co-Founder-Shelli Gardner, during one of her Demonstrations for-Workshop of a Lifetime for Demonstrators-across the country.
I think it's very Rich and Elegant looking. So here is my picture tutorial of the stenciled piece. Enjoy!
Vanilla Card Stock (#101650 $7.50)
Our stencils-Elegant Trio is from Our definitely decorative catalog (#118262 $9.95). I used the color Taken with Teal ink pad (#103257 $5.95) and 1/4 of one of our sponges (#101610 $3.50).
I then used one of our "under $10 stamps" Simply Thanks (#115560 $7.95). You could also use Define Your Life Stamp Set (#114950 $47.95) and get just as nifty a look.
I used Staz- On Black Ink (#101406 $7.95) and randomly stamped all over the stencil.
Peel up the stencil and TA-DAA!!
But Wait-There's More….Now poke a hole in the center-I used the Sharp Paper Piercing tool and the Mat pack for underneath the stamped paper. (#116631 $3.50 Tool and Mat Pack #105826 $9.95-Very Handy-I use these tools at least three times a week).
The final touch-a Clear Brad-Oh so Pretty. (#113144 $10.95 for 84)
And that is that. The colors I used were Basic Black C.S. and Ribbon, Vanilla C.S.,Taken with Teal C.S. and Ink as well as the paper pack Sweet Pea (sorry-Sweet Pea is No longer available from the Occasions Mini).
Now-Go create something-You deserve some me time!!!
