Hello & Happy Friday!
Welcome to Day 4 of the July 2021 Release Product Introductions. I can’t believe it’s Friday already & week 1 of the summer holidays is almost over.
Today we have another inspiring blog hop and we are introducing FOUR new stencil designs. A bit of a mix with hopefully something for everyone.
I have four cards to show you today, so let’s get to it…
First up I have this sparkly colourful card using the Flower Power #8 stencil. I recently purchased the Altenew Detail Blending Brushes and had to give them a whirl by colouring each of the flower segments a different colour!
I then applied some Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel over the top to get this beautiful sparkle. I messed up a little, so I trimmed the flower to go over the edge of my card panel. I added a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks III and a trio of sparkly Nuvo Drops to finish.
Next up is a card using the Rainbow & Clouds stencil. The stencil contains 2 sizes of rainbow and 4 different sized clouds. Here I chose to use the smaller rainbow.
I am slowly stepping outside my comfort zone and this time I used some Gina K Pastillage Texture Paste. I removed the stencil, cleaned & when the paste was dry reapplied the stencil and used the detail blending brush to apply ink.
I love the subtle dimension of this texture paste. For the clouds I used Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel and simply fussy cut the clouds out when dry. Again a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks III and a little glitter heart from my stash finished the card.
Another CAS card up next, this time using the Squared stencil. Again testing out the detail blending brushes I was able to selectively ink various squares to create a frame round my Birthday Wishes sentiment.
I’m looking forward to having another play with this stencil and paring it with Background Builders Squared!
Lastly for today I have another simple design using Tropical Leaf I. Here I used the detail blending brushes to add different shades of green for a interesting effect with it being a CAS design.
This time I added the Thinking of You sentiment from Simply Said Blocks II and a trio of Bottle Green Nuvo Drops to finish.
Just a quick look at all four stencils from me today, I know I will be sharing more in the coming weeks with these as well as all the new products I’ve introduced this week. Be sure to hop around the Brand Ambassador blogs for more inspiration and don’t forget to leave comments along the way. I will be randomly selecting comments left in the lead up to Release Day on 25th July to win Uniko goodies!
Until tomorrow, Crafty Hugs
