Shower Stencil glue 06336

card with hot glue stencil

Shower stencil 06337
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge(WT538) asks us to use sequins. I’m also using one the Technique Challenges (TLC533) from a few weeks back which had us making a stencil using a hot glue gun.

I first made the stencil on a hot glue mat, peeled it up (when cool) and placed it on my card stock. Then I sponged on the colors from a rainbow pad and spritzed it a bit using some thinned down white acrylic paint in a fine mister. I think I actually liked the stencil better than the result, lol. It looked a little undefined so I used a Micron pen to sort of outline the petals. Here’s what the stencil looks like.

I die cut the layers, stamped the greeting, added a fussy cut umbrella and attached the sequins (upside down, just for a change).

What a great Pinterest board for today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC494)on Splitcoast! I have the Design Seeds site bookmarked, but it’s great to see so many of their pictures all on one page. For my card, I was inspired by the colors & flowers of THIS picture.

I started by stamping the large greeting then die cutting the bottom with a curved border. After masking off the edges & bottom of the black layer, I stamped the polka dot border w/ white pigment ink. The small white bottom is the rest of the curved border section but I trimmed off more of the bottom to open up the space then stamped the dots w/ black ink. The flowers were colored and fussy cut & I added a few sequins here & there.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 & these are the Copics I used.

Shower 05915
For my Spring card, rain, umbrellas, flowers and showers come to mind when I think of Spring. I started by sponging a white panel from the top left corner down using the yellow inks and sponging the pink inks from the right corner up. I die cut the center panel out of the larger one using the stitched rectangle then stamped the flower corner w/ black in the upper left. I added just a bit more color to the flowers and leaves with Copics and used a white gel pen in the flower centers. After masking the flower corner, I stamped the beaded string background with white ink and white embossed it. I wiped a bit of the ink off the lower edge to make it an angled background.

I added some crystals to some of the dots and some clear dimensional glue (the closest thing I had to crystal effects) on the rest. It was also added to all the flower centers. You can probably see it a little better in the picture above. A few extra flowers were fussy cut and added here & there. The umbrella was die cut out of white & also vellum, the center was replaced w/ the vellum & the lacy topper added along with greeting. I added a narrow white layer under the top layer and attached it back on top of the original panel. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used on the flowers.
