Plastic Patterns – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Technique Blog Hop where we the theme is to “Plastic Patterns” with Close To My Heart products.

If you have arrived here from Michelle Loncar then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Whether you are creating your own stencils with the Stencil Sheets or grabbing a ready to use Stencil Pack, there is sure to be some great ideas for you to try out & use in your papercrafting.

I decided to use one of the smaller stencils from Stencil Pack 3 & I created a stencil/mask circle out of cardstock using the Circle Shaker Window Thin Cut Die.

I cut my cardstock with the large Stitched Rectangle Frames Thin Cut Die & then laid down my cut out circle Stencil/mask into position & then added the diamond patten onto & pounced in abandoned coral & tattered rose Distress Oxide inks into the stencil to create my background.

I added a thin strip of Black Ore Paper & lovely paper & stamped a seasonal border under the stamped & die cut fox from the Woodland Friends. And layered it on some Lovely pattern paper to tie in the colours.

I did accidentally get a mark on the top of my card once I adhered it together – so extra falling leaves were added to make it look like it was part of the design. But overall I think is creates a soft & pretty card.

My next card I used Transparent Gloss texture paste with the stencil as once dry this texture paste is dry it resists ink.

I blended on some Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink & some Tattered Rose Distress Oxide. I then coloured & fussy cut a flower from the Every Bit of Wonderful set & added some strips of Comfort & Joy paper to finish off the card. The Just For You is from the Seasonal Borders stamp set.

I had fun creating this card & I’d love for you to leave a comment before you head on over to Darlys Recker to get more Plastic Patterns ideas.

  1. Love both cards but especially the first one – great stencil work and a nice, clean design. Great way to cover your error (we have ALL been there…)
