Have a look at the creations...

The video tutorial is linked below

Two amazing stencil techniques

The products used would be listed at the end of this post.

Let's check out the techniques one-by-one;

Technique 1: Stencil Resist

This is such an easy technique but the impact is high.

I started by using a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock and covered it with Raspberry dye ink directly onto the paper.

Then I placed the latest Foliage 1 stencil over this inked paper and sprayed it generously with water.

Using a tissue, I wiped the water away and as these are dye inks, they react with water and get lighter in those areas.

Now, I used a heat tool to speed things up and this gave a beautiful background.

I simply added die-cut sentiments and a few hearts to complete the card.

Here's a close-up of the beautiful background;

Technique 2: Partial Stenciling

This technique uses masking an area as the main focal point.

For this, I used the Tubby Craft Bloom stamp and Jet Black dye ink and stamped over a white card front and also on a scrap piece of paper. You can also use masking paper if you want to.

Then, I fussy cut the image on the scrap piece of paper and stick it over the other stamped image with some temporary tape runner.

Now, I placed the Foliage 1 stencil over the panel and using
 Light pink dye ink, I ink blended over the entire panel.

For an advanced look, after removing the stencil, I blended the same ink over the panel but with a much lighter force.

This gives a dramatic tone-on-tone look to the background.

 Next, I simply white heat embossed the sentiment onto some black cardstock and adhered it to finish the card.

I have a few examples to show you all how stunning these techniques work, have a look;

Two amazing anniversary cards by Anushree

Hi Everyone !!
Hope you all are doing good and crafting too.
I have two cards for today. I have highlighted  different techniques for each card.
Onto my first card,

I have tried showcasing repeated stamping in a border style . I have used Plumeria Florals stamp set and Jet Black dye ink from Tubby craft to stamp the border first.
Next I chose Imperial Red and Lead gray dye inks from Tubby Craft to color my florals.
Sentiment is a die cut on Gold card stock and the card is embellished in gold peals.
For border,I have adhered Gold border die cut to enhance the card on a black cardstock.

Now onto my second card,

I am using Checkered Stencil for the background .I have used rainbow colors from Tubby Craft Dye ink collection to put them on paper using blending brushes.
I masked the center with a circle die cut before applying inks to the card base. Once stenciled background is ready,I removed the mask and stamped sentiment from Lucky Quote stamp in Black Dye ink.
I embellished my card with…


Hello my dearies I hope you all are doing well :) This is Crafter Anu & today I am here to share 2 beautiful spring cards. For me spring season is about blooming flowers & colorful butterflies. So yes I tried to work with these only & here's how my project turned out to be..

I have used the BRIGHT DAY stamp set.

To create this card follow the instructions: STEP 1: Stamp the following images from the stamp set using JET BLACK INK from tubby craft. P.S. because I used watercolors to color these here I have used a permanent ink to stamp the images.

STEP 2: Color all the images using any medium you prefer & then fussy cut them all.
STEP 3: Take a half inch strip of black cardstock & stamp the sentiment on it using versamark ink & then heat emboss it using gold embossing powder.

STEP 4: For the background take a piece of white watercolor paper & using the LEAD GREY INK from tubby craft paint the lines as shown.
