STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday - Keep Cozy

Image
Hi everyone! I am back sharing another easy design for the Stencil Sunday series over at STAMPlorations. This time I am using the Stencil called Crisscrossed.  


I used distress oxide vintage photo and a blending tool and softly brushed the ink through the stencil. I put more pressure on some areas than others so that it was not a constant design.


I used the stamp set called Snow Cozy to stamp the coffee cups onto circles that I punched out.  I colored the cups using Copic Markers and edged the circles using the distress oxide vintage photo.


I used the same stamp set to stamp the sentiments.  I added two pockets and punched a half circle in each to create pockets for my Circles. the thumb notched ensured that my images would show when they were in their "cozy" pockets.

Once I was happy with the color, I used a pallet knife to spread the texture paste through the stencil.


I also added a strip of green glitter washi tape to make it a bit more festive.  This is a good way to cover up any boo boo's you may have along the way as well.


Then using my MISTI, I stamped a sentiment on the top as well as under the tree using the stamp set called Hello Christmas.  I used coordinating green ink for my sentiments.


I finished off the card by layering it onto some Green card stock and adding it to a white card base.

I love that this stencil has two trees so I can make to different cards using the same stencil.  When I added th…
