Masked Mod Flower Stencil with Chrissie Tobas

Hi everyone!  Chrissie Tobas here today and I’m so excited to be sharing a card I created using supplies from the new Freshly Picked Release!

This release quickly became one of my favorites because of the stencils. I love, love, love stencils because I love creating my own backgrounds and patterns. I rarely even use patterned paper because I’d rather just create my own.

Chrissie_Pineapple To create this card, I first created my card base. I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock to 4.25 x 11 inches, and then scored it at 5.5 inches. This created a top folding card. Then, I trimmed a piece of the same Kraft cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches to be used for the front panel.

On that front Kraft panel, I chose an area that would be good for a pattern towards the top. The area is about 2 inches tall (I just eyeballed this; nothing was exact). I took a piece of typing paper and cut it in half. I masked off the parts of the card where I didn’t want the pattern, using the paper and held it down with washi tape. The paper will protect the areas that are covered, so no ink will show up. Any type of wide repositionable tape or paper would work for this, too. I only had typing/copy paper on hand.

I then secured the Mod Flower stencil into place, also using washi tape and used a blending tool to gently add Grass Skirt ink to the card panel. Add more or less ink as desired to create the patterned effect. I peeled back the stencil to reveal the fabulous pattern!

I stamped the pineapple from the I Pick You stamp set onto a piece of white cardstock, using Melon Ice and Tiara inks for the pineapple and Grass Skirt ink for the leaves. I used my MISTI positioning tool to give the pineapple a two-toned look. This creates a bit of dimension, even though the image is really flat. I then used the corresponding die to cut it out.

To finish up the card, I stamped the “thank you” sentiment (also from I Pick You) in Midnight ink. I then assembled the card, using foam tape to add multiple layers of dimension. This makes the card nice and sturdy and adds extra interest, too!
Thanks so much for having me on the blog, Catherine!
