NEW Month, NEW Stencils, Giveaway AND an Offer!

NEW Month, NEW Stencils, Giveaway AND an Offer!


Happy Monday and happy November ๐Ÿ˜Š What a lovely end to October at the weekend with the Stamping Together Festival. It was strange, but super lovely to be back at the show after two years. Seeing new and familiar faces and sharing our love and passion for paper crafts and stamping.

On Saturday I shared this peek on Instagram of two NEW stencil designs I took to the show. I was intending on releasing them yesterday on the website, but exhaustion from the weekend caught up with me. AND the Beans were super excited about Halloween ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyway, I am excited they are now available on the website HERE. So let’s have a look at the newness with a formal introduction and some samples…

First up is the next addition to the Flower Power series of stencils and Flower Power #5. I am loving the larger size of these modern florals and they definitely breathe new life into the stamps too. 

Then we have Mid Century Modern Shapes. This stencil is the next product in my love for all things Mid Century Modern. I have more up my sleeve that will be coming soon ๐Ÿ˜‰ but for now this is a fun addition to the previously released Mid Century Modern stencils and stamps.

So, now I have done the ‘formal’ introduction to these two beauties, how about some creative inspiration as to how I have used them…
First up some flower power…

For this first card I kept things really simple. I love offsetting these larger blooms off the edge of a standard size card. I love how it draws focus. 

I used Concord & 9th inks in Buttercup, Marmalade and Honeysuckle to blend through the stencil and added a simple sentiment from Simply Said Blocks and Simply Said Blocks III.

For my second card using this stencil I revisited a technique I’ve used before. Creating a ghost outline by inking through with white pigment ink first. Then removing the stencil and offsetting before inking with your chosen colours. 

It creates this lovely shadow effect. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry. Added a sentiment from Floral Vines (back in stock 22nd November) and some clear Nuvo Drops.

Then I had some fun with the Mid Century Modern Shapes and combined it with a few stamps from the collection, that will be back in stock 22nd November.

For this first card I layered two of the same shape to create a base for my focal point using two shades of pink from Altenew, Pink Diamond and Pinkalicious.

I then created a mask of the smaller shape I had used, rotated the stencil and placed the mask inside the large shape to create a framed image. I accented this with some explosions from Mid Century Modern Florals and a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks. 

Lastly for today I created a super CAS masculine congrats card. Again I used a masking technique with another of the shapes to create this fun design.

I love this starburst / explosion image, which you can also find in Kindness Blooms ๐Ÿ˜‰ and again added a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.

So what do you think? Which is your favourite?

    The flower with the shadow effect looks great. And the other stencil is very versatile. Thanks for the good ideas.

    The Mid Century shapes are definitely my favourite, so clean and simple but really effective. I never would have thought of using them like that.
    Thanks as always for your great ideas Bev.
