3 Cards in 30 Minutes Using CrafTangles Stencils

Happy Monday!

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!

Fab cards Shabneez x I will take a leaf out of your book and see if I can challenge myself to 3 in 30 minutes! I spent this evening making backgrounds, stamping and die cutting images, 3 hours later and I don't have any cards made! Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs - Debs x
