Embossing with a Stencil?!

Hi friends! Today’s card is made using a new tool I recently added to my craft collection – the Sizzix silicone rubber and impressions pad, which allows you to emboss stencils! I was really excited to try this tool out. It opens the door to so many new crafting possibilities!

Using the Festive Fall Stencil from Echo Park Paper Co, I embossed white cardstock using the already-mentioned Sizzix embossing tools. I lightly sprayed the cardstock with water to get a prominent embossed image.

I then used the stencil normally, ink blending a variety of distress oxides and inks to create a rainbow of bright colour. I used the following oxides and inks:

– Saltwater Taffy

– Spiced Marmalade

– Mustard Seed

– Mowed Lawn

– Salty Ocean

– Wilted Violet

Now that I have ink blended and embossed using the same stencil, I trimmed both panels in a way where the ink-blended panel would align with the embossed panel when placed together – it is kind of like a puzzle! After trimming them, I arranged and attached the pieces to an A2 card base.

For the sentiment, I chose the “celebrate” sentiment from the Hello Bluebird Birthday Script Stamp set and fussy cut it using Fiskars 6” spring-assisted scissors. I then attached the sentiment to the card.

I love how this card turned out! You can never go wrong with a simple card!

Thanks for reading! Catch ya next time!
