Hey crafty people, it’s Tasha here, back with more crafty inspiration for your Saturday morning! I am having so much fun playing with all of the amazing new brands that have joined our Paper Tribe recently!
On my desk today I’ve got one of the awesome layering stencils from Trinity stamps and this is the first time I’ve ever tried using one of these, so I’m going to share a few of my first impressions and tips to getting the most out of these!
Firstly, the price point is a little higher than a regular stencil, BUT don’t forget that you are getting two stencils that work together to create a super fun image which can absolutely be the focal point of your design!
They are super high quality!! I’m really impressed by the detail that you can get with them; some of those confetti pieces are teeny tiny, but I had absolutely no trouble getting a perfectly clear image.
Stretching Your Stencil
The two stencils work together to make a set of streamers and some confetti, but I wanted more, so once I had both parts done, I actually shifted my stencils over to add in a second set! You could realistically keep doing this as many times as you want!
I’ve used the streamers and confetti on this card, but because of how they are laid out, you could very easily mask one or the other off so that you have just the confetti or streamers.
They could easily be shifted across to allow you to cover a slimline card too!!
I love how easily and quickly I was able to get a pretty detailed image with so many different colours and no need for any complicated and time-consuming masking!
I went for quite an in your face and bright design here, but you could easily go for a much more subtle look if you wanted to! I think it would work great as a tone on tone background image.
Quick Birthday Card
Before I started to ink over either stencil, I lined them up against each other to make sure that I had them both the right way round, this way I knew that once I had finished the first one, I could easily line up the second to get a perfect image.
I really enjoyed making this bright and cheery birthday card, it certainly brightened up my day and I’m sure anyone receiving it will feel the same too!
We always love to see what you’ve been creating! I’ll catch you next week for some more Paper Tree inspiration!
