We know how much you love our Subscription Boxes and there are so many to get your hands on now, but we thought we’d share a project for one of our most recent releases. Subscription Box #14 is all about stencils and how you can use them to create beautiful backgrounds, and this project is the perfect example!
By following along with this step-by-step, you can put together a fabulously dotty rainbow card, all using the products inside the box and a few extra bits and bobs. Take a look and discover how you can add some vibrancy to your stenciling!
You will need:
- Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box #14
- Harmony Opaque Pigment Inkpads in Fuchsia, Lemon Tonic, Parakeet
- Harmony Quick Dry Inkpad in Noir Black
- Heat gun
- Clear embossing powder
Trim a piece of watercolour cardstock from the Subscription Box #14 down to 4.75″ square. Use an embossing tool on the card stock to remove any static or oil. Tape the stencil on top of the cardstock, then ink the cardstock over the stencil with all three Opaque Pigment Inkpads, blending them as they overlap.
Remove the watercolour cardstock from under the stencil and cover it in clear embossing powder. Tap off the excess powder, the heat set the whole piece with a head gun. It will appear shiny and enamel-like.
Attach the stamp sentiment of your choice from Subscription Box #14 to a Stamping Platform. Ink it with Noir Black and stamp it on to a die-cut tag from Subscription Box #14.
Mat the embossed watercolour cardstock on to a piece of blue cardstock from Box #14 and, again, on to a piece of black cardstock trimmed to 5″ x 5″.
Tie a piece of twine around the sentiment stamped on to the die-cut piece from Box #14 and tie a knot on to the side. Adhere all the sentiment pieces on to a piece of blue cardstock matted with black card stock trimmed to 3” X 2.5”.
Adhere the sentiment layers to the right side towards the bottom of the card panel. Adhere the whole card panel to a 5″ x 5″ card base.
