The weekend went so fast and here we are again ready for another week! My time is often quite limited and yet I often have a few personal cards to make so I challenged myself to make 3 cards in 30 minutes. I used CrafTangles stamps, stencils and Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I chose 3 stencils and stuck them all on a sheet of A3 watercolour paper before adding distress inks and spritzing with water.
While the backgrounds were drying I cut out my card bases from CrafTangles cardstock but you can use a heat gun to speed up the drying process.
For my first card I cut our a square from the background and adhered it onto the card base, adding a band with a heat embossed sentiment and sequins to finish.
With the next background, I fussy cut it and stuck half on to my card base before heat embossing a sentiment and adding faux gems to embellish.
For my final card, I used a stitched border to cut out the background before adhering it on to the card base. I stamped a sentiment and added bakers twine to finish.
I hope this post has inspired you to pick up your stencils next time you want to make a quick batch of cards. There is a more in depth post over on the CrafTangles blog HERE.
See you again soon!
