Techniques & Sweet Stuff

 Here some cards focusing on techniques such as Stencil spraying, Sponging ,folder printing & Blendabilities (Alcohol Markers). Products used in these projects include, Stamps; Papillon Potpourri, Hello There, Kinda Eclectic, Everything Eleanor & Petite Petals. Punches: Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly, Label Bracket  & Petite Petals. Framelits: Hexagon Hive, Chalk Talk and Apothecary Accents.


Colours: Calypso Coral, Hello Honey, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow Tuxedo Black & Whisper White.

Colours:  Hello Honey, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow Tuxedo Black & Very Vanilla.

Vanilla Seam binding ribbon & pearls go really nicely with Very Vanilla card stock.

Colours: Hello Honey, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Soft Sky, Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi, Tuxedo Black & Whisper White.


I cut a stencil out of card stock using the Hexagon Hive Framelit. Adding a little bit of snail adhesive  then tapping off the excess stickiness with your finger tip helps to hold the stencil in place, without sticking to your work too much.

I spayed with a few of squirts of Daffodil Delight & few of Pool Party.
(In this particular photo the stencil has all the colour -as I had used it several times before - and my card stock is Whisper White). I just used alcohol (Isocol - rubbing alcohol) several drops of ink refill until I was happy with the colour.

I used the swirl from Everything Eleanor & stamped it in Soft Sky ink.

Sponged the edges with Hello Honey ink.


Cut out a tag from Chalk Talk framelits in Daffodill Delight card stock. Add a ;layer of Hello Honey  ink to the Honeycomb embossing folder, close the folder with the tag inside & press down firmly to transfer the ink. (It's like stamping with an embossing folder). Then sponge the edges with more Hello Honey ink.

Stamp the words ( So Sweet of you ) from Hello There, in Hello Honey ink on Hello Honey card stock.Punch out with Label Bracket Punch, sponge the edges with more Hello Honey ink.

Stamp the flower from Petite Petals in Hello Honey ink on Whisper White card stock.Add some daffodil Delight ink to the center of the flower using a sponge dauber. Punch out with Petite Petals Punch.

Stamp the fuller flower from Petite Petals in Wild  Wasabi ink on Pistachio Pudding card stock.. Punch out with Petite Petals Punch, then cut with scissor to create leaves.


To make the butterfly (from Papillon Potpourri)  stamp in Memento  Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White card stock.

Allow black ink 20-30 seconds drying time, colour once over with the brush tip in the lightest shade of Coastal Cabana Blendabilities Markers.

Next I used the bullet end of the dark Coastal Cabana to trace along the top edge of the butterfly wings.

Again with the darkest shade using little stokes, I went over the first dark line and extended it 


Next with the medium shade of Coastal Cabana, go over  all the dark areas and continue to extend it further,  and keep using the same stoke style.

One more time go over and extend the dark area, this time using the Lightest shade. (This step may not be necessary with the other coloured Blendabilities, but for some reason the Coastal Cabana needs more work to blend).

Finally give a last coat of the light shade all over using the brush tip.This step makes all the difference when blending, as you can tell in this picture I have only coloured in the left wing.

Punch  out using the Elegant Butterfly punch. 
All the pieces to make the tag  + adhesives & dimensionals.

All pieces put together creating a card full of techniques and sweet stuff.
