Stenciled Leaves on Sticky Mats


Hey card making friends, Sandi MacIver here with another quick and easy card share.  Todays card is created with the Pinkfresh Studio Detailed Leaf.  Products used today are from the newest release and includes the leaf stamp set, coordinating dies, stencils and hot foil plate.  

I opted not to get the hot foil plate because I can Gold Emboss the image using the stamp set.  Also, I'm trying to stay within my crafting budget, LOL.....you know how that is. 

 Anyway, I love using these layered stencils to create cards.  They make you look so artistic with so little work, LOL.  It's also great fun trying out new color combinations for these leaves.

How to create the Pinkfresh Studio Detailed Leaf Card:

Start by cutting a piece of cardstock into quarters 4 x 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  Set one aside and using a Misti, stamp the leaf image on each of the other 3 in VersaMark Ink, cover with gold embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat set. 

Next, use the coordinating stencils on a Sticky Mat to color in the leaves with Pinkfresh Ink colors:  Ocean Breeze/ Aquamarine/Mermaid Cove/Tidal Pond.  The stencils are numbered in the top left corner of each to assist you with placement and I started with the lightest color at #1 working my way to the darkest. 

Then, rub the images with a dry towel to remove any ink sitting on top of the embossing and then die cut with the coordinating die. 

Finally, place inside a SPLAT BOX, and spatter with gold and white paint.

Creating the background for the Card:

Start by placing the Geo Blocks Hot Foil plate onto the base platform of your die cutting machine. 

Then, spritz the 4th piece of white cardstock you cut at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" with water and lay it on top of the plate. 

Next, place a silicone impression pad over this with a cutting pad and run through the die cutting machine.  (Note the sandwich for this may differ for your machine).  This will emboss the card front with the design on the hot foil plate. 

Next, attach the card front to a top folding A2 sized card base.  4-1/4" x 11" score and fold at 5 -1/2".

Then, use foam squares to attach the color leaf pieces randomly around the card front cutting off any overhang. 

Finally, add a gold embossed sentiment from the Foiled Sentiment 3 kit and embellish with Pinkfresh Studio glitter drops in Aqua (these are really blingy). 

 I hope you enjoyed today's card share.  It's super simple but really artsy and will work for any occasion by simply changing out the sentiment.  PS, there are 30 different sentiments in each Die Cut Sentiments kit.
