Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s have some fun with our Distress Sprays, Distress Ink Pads and Layering Stencils! We will be using the beautiful Layered Peony stencil from the Sizzix Layered Stencils Collection. This is a four part layering stencil. Please note that this is designed to be used with the Sizzix Stencil & Stamp Tool. You will notice that these 4 stencils have two holes punched at the top of the stencil….this is so that you can easily line up each layer of your stencils on the pegs of the stamping tool. This tool will ensure perfect alignment every time! However, you can easily use these stencils without the Sizzix Stencil & Stamp Tool and I will be showing you that today.

In order to ensure that no inks will leak underneath the stencils while we are using the Distress Sprays, we will be spraying them with the Pixie Spray. This will give the stencils a sticky back and allow the stencils to lay flat and adhere to the paper temporarily while we do the spraying.

Let’s create a beautiful pink peony background using the Distress Sprays in Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries. You will want to heat set the colors after each layer of the stenciling. This background will have a beautiful watercolor effect!

For the second card we will be using the Distress Oxide Ink Pads in the same colors that we used in the sprays. This background will be a bit more detailed and crisp.

I wanted to give you a few different ways to use these layering stencils to get a completely different look! This will hopefully help you stretch your stencils for some interesting backgrounds.

We will add a beautiful silver metallic butterfly from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Scribbly Butterflies Die Set. For paper we will use the Tim Holtz idea-ology Kraft-Stock – Metallic Classics.

Next we can create our sentiment label usng the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Vintage Labels Dies. These dies not only die cut the shape but also emboss a beautiful edge which adds lots of dimension and interest. The “Thinking of You” sentiment is from the Scrapbook.com Cards for Kindness Stamps – Handmade Essentials Set. We will emboss the sentiment using the Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

Let’s go ahead and create the 6″x6″ card base and add the silver layer and then the pink peony background for each of our cards..

Finally, we can add some sparkle with the pretty Pinkfresh Studio Ombre Glitter Drops in Twighlight!
