Ombre Stenciled Hand Made Card with the Masking Technique

Clearly Besotted Ombre Stenciled Hand Made Card4

On Monday, I shared a KISS Card with you featuring the Bold Blossoms Stamp Set by Ellen Hutson from the Winter 2015 release.  You can view that post here.

The card ended up being quite simple…a One Layer Card with stenciling, some stamping and a few embellishment variations.

The next card I made (above) is very similar to the first cards.  Instead of a One Layer Card, I stamped on a layer and added that to a card base.

I stenciled the whole front instead of just part of the front, stenciled with 3 different colors to give an ombre effect and used the Bold Blooms Stamp Set stamped in black.

My favorite part of this card is the ombre stenciling.

So again, I didn’t stop there.  I kept going and adding more techniques.  How about masking?   yeah, I thought so, too.

The second card here is the same as the first, I just swapped out the Leafy Accents Stamp Set by Clearly Besotted.

I couldn’t stop there…like I showed in the video, I cut a mask out using the Stitched Rectangles Die by Lil’ Inker Designs and sponged the stencil in the mask.  When I lifted it off, it basically gave me a faux layer.  I stamped the leaves and sentiment (from Happiness in Bloom by Papertrey Ink), layered it with black and added it to a white cardstock base.
