Hi all,

We have a pink theme here at Papermilldirect this week and, as I had just bought some new stencil paste I thought that I would share with you how I made this easy card.

Materials used:

Firstly, I used low tack stencil tape to tape the stencil onto a piece of natural white pearlised card. I like using low tack tape as it doesn’t leave any marks on the card when I remove it. There are two sprays of this flower on the stencil but I only wanted one for my card so I taped (masked) off the other flower.

Using a small amount of the pink stencil paste at the top of the stencil, and a metal spreader, I carefully pulled the spreader over the stencil in one even movement. This ensures that the paste runs into all parts of the stencil evenly.

I carefully removed the stencil and allowed the paste to dry (takes about 45 mins).

Then I stamped the sentiment using Black archival ink.

I used my MISTI stamping tool to ensure I got a perfect outcome. I have been stamping for many years and when I first saw these, I didn’t think that I needed one at all. However, I bought one and honestly I wouldn’t be without it now. There are many different types of stamp positioning tools on the market now and they are all very good. Many of the ladies in my workshops have them and feel exactly the same way about them 😊

I then scored a piece of the Kraft cardstock to get a DL sized card. I like using my scoreboard because it helps me get a crisp sharp fold.

Finally, I adhered the pearlised stencilled card front to the brown card and added some glitter.
