How to use stencils to ad variety to card designs

Let’s use stencils to create two unique cards using the same featured image stamp. See how stencils are an easy way to change up the vibe and create depth and interest to your card.

Stenciling a background is very popular in the card making industry. This technique allows crafters to create beautiful and intricate designs on their cards by using stencils and various mediums like ink, paint, or embossing paste. By layering different patterns and colors, stenciling adds depth and dimension to the background of the card, making it visually appealing and unique. Experimenting with different stencil designs and techniques can help crafters unleash their creativity and produce stunning handmade cards that are sure to impress recipients. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned crafter, stenciling is a versatile and fun way to elevate your card making projects to the next level. Let’s follow along as our Designer Meghan shows us two card ideas for how to use stencils to add variety to our card designs.

Card #1: Sunburst Group of Friends

Step 1: Megan created the sunburst background using different shades of yellows found in ‘Color Fuse Set #1 and Set #2‘ and using Brass & Bliss ‘4108 – Sunburst Stencil‘. Once Meghan had the sunburst colored she splatted it with gold and white paint. Meghan die cut the background using Brass & Bliss ‘5176D – Deckled Nested Rectangle Dies‘ and mounted it on a blue cardstock base.

Step 2: Meghan colored the group of friends from ‘3495-04 – Group of Friends Stamp Set‘ using a variety of Copic Markers and gave them all cute little cheeks. She die cut the group of friends using ‘3495-04D – Group of Friends Coordinating Dies‘. Meghan die cut ‘5406-04D – Friend Die‘ in the same blue as the cardstock base to match the blue border and stamped the sentiment from ”3495-04 – Group of Friends Stamp Set‘ using black ink.

 Card #2: Purple Brick Group of Friends

Step 1: Meghan created this background using Brass & Bliss ‘4102 – Repeating Bricks Stencil‘ and purple stencil paste. She die cut the background using the Brass & Bliss ‘5176D – Nested Scallop with Holes Die‘ and mounted it on black cardstock.

Step 2: Meghan colored the group of friends ‘3495-04 Group of Friends Stamp Set‘ with a variety of Copic Markers and die them using ‘3495-04D – Group of Friends Coordinating Die‘. She added the ‘5406-04D – Friend Script w/Shadow Die‘ sentiment in black and white so it pops from the purple

Which one is your favorite? The sunburst or the bricks? We really love how she maximized the focal image and created two different cards by using different stencils to change up the vibe. Both of these cute cards are sure to bring a smile to any recipient.
