NEW Stars and Stripes Stencil

Hello! Hope you are having a good weekend.

Have you seen our quirky NEW family definition stamps? We think they’re really cool, and rather useful, so we’re really excited to be launching them on Create and Craft TV next weekend!

Nicky Gilburt is here on the blog today sharing a superb card featuring not only one of these new stamps but an awesome NEW stencil too…


For todays card I had the idea to use the stripes from the aptly named Stars and Stripes stencil

I simply positioned the stencil over my card and used blending sponges and a selection of four Distress Oxides through the stripes. I also stamped separately four stars which come on the ‘Rock Out’ stamp set, cut them out and stuck them round the awesome definition of the word SON..

which was stamped with white embossing powder onto white card. I then used my blending sponge and blue Distress Oxide ink to colour the card behind.

All mounted on a simple A6 tent fold card, this card was complete within minutes, and I love the simple effect achieved through using just one section of these new amazing stencils. And I know that Visible Image fans are going to love these too!

September’s Visible Image challenge theme is…. Distressed! Be sure to add your make to the album over in the Facebook group to be in with a chance of winning a fabulous £40 coupon to spend in the Visible Image Shop!
