Happy New Year 2022



Good Morning.
Time to celebrate a New Year with new beginnings and hopefully good health and happiness!

Here's a simple card I made using stencils from ACLD.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by getting out my Stencil Mat from Waffle Flower....a fairly new to me tool that I am loving to stencil on.  It is a silicone mat that holds your paper and stencil nicely in place.
  • I positioned the Happy New Year stencil over my white cardstock.  Starting at the top, I applied Distress Oxide inks in this order:  Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Crackling Campfire, Barn Door, Peacock Feathers Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio.  
  • To add more interest, I left that stencil in place and positioned the Cozy Knit stencil right over the top of it, doing a stencil on stencil technique.  I inked from top to bottom again.
  • I splattered with my white Posca pen and set aside to dry.
  • I cut another white panel and using the Cozy Knit stencil again, I used the same colours of Distress Oxide inks and stenciled up the whole panel but this time I reversed the colours.  I glued that onto a heavy white card base.
  • I fussy cut the Happy New Year out, then pop dot mounted it onto my stenciled card panel.
