Hero Arts Love Swirls Stenciled Wedding & Anniversary

Hello there,

July’s challenge theme – Sparkle & Shine prompts me to think of weddings and anniversaries.   And I am using this stencil, Hero Arts Love Swirls Stencil today.

Isn’t it lovely?  Now let’s take a look of my projects.

First up I made a CAS wedding card.  The pattern of the stencils reminds me of a bride’s veil, or it could be some details on a wedding dress.  So I went ahead and align the stencil on a white card base so that only half is on the card.  I masked the necessary areas and spread a light modeling paste over the stencil, lifted the stencil and sprinkled Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter over the paste right away so they would adhere.  After it dried I furbish the glitter by rubbing the stenciled area.  And shake off the excess glitter.  Then I heat embossed the sentiment in Brass.

Next I created an anniversary card.  I used an inking tool and inked only parts of the stencil.  I did one side first then move the stencil to the opposite side and repeated the process.  Then the sentiment is stamped in black and clear heat embossed.

Next I masked the stenciled area and the sentiment, and splatter the middle section with Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink.

Both cards are one layer, so very mailing friendly!  🙂  Btw, the Love Swirls stencil is on sale right now, It’s 50% off the regular price.  Get yours today.

Now it’s your turn to make something Sparkly and Shinny and play along our July Challenge.  Scroll down to get the details.

CAS Anniversary card

Monica M with a look at a clean and simple anniversary card. I know there are some things like the ribbon and embossing folder that aren’t in the store, but you could easily substitute. Like I used an embossing folder, but one could just as easily use a stencil with embossing paste/ powder or even dies for a faux embossed looked and have wonderful results!

Happy Anniversary blue

I started with my sentiment placement before embossing and trimming the card panel to size. I added the ribbon and bow to cover the separation the embossed and flat portions of the card. I rounded the corners of my panel and adhered it to the card base. To finish up the card I rounded the card base corners and added my gems to mimic half of a heart.

I love making a simple card like this somedays, it’s a nice contrast to inking backgrounds and detail coloring images. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A Glittery Embossed Anniversary Card

happy anniversary hero artsHi Everyone! Kristina here with some textured fun for this months challenge!

So I was looking for a multi-dimensional layered design with texture/embossing subtle in the background.
I started with a white embossing paste and mixed in glitter and plain white perfect pearls.
For a more glittery affect you can apply the glitter directly to the embossing paste after stenciling it on but I knew
I would be using a chunky glitter in the layers and didn’t want to over-do it

While that dried I stamped “Happy” in black pigment ink and embossed with Ultra High embossing powder
followed by stamping “anniversary” in black ink. I love how versatile this stamp set is that you can make a wide variety of sentences, and mass produce cards!

Here’s a close up

Happy Anniversary 3-2
