Happy Monday everyone!! It is the first day of June and summer is here in Northern Cali! I spent the long weekend at Craft Camp and I loved it! Can't wait to show you all what I created! For today's card, I used the Leaf Burst stencil from Altenew, which I love! I made a fall card last fall, and I wanted to make a bright colored card this time. I love working with stencils!
First, I wanted to make two cards, one with a white background and one with a black background to show off the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse that I bought from Catherine Pooler. If you have not used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse yet, you need to! It is so velvety and glides onto a stencil like butter! So I cut a piece of white 110lb cardstock and a piece of 110lb black cardstock for my card panels. When you are deciding your card panel size, I always try to envision the space needed for my design. I also love the look of extending the card panel to end of the card base like I did with the black card. I then took my Leaf Burst stencil and taped it down using Mint Tape from Scrapbook.com. Using a art spatula, I applied the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse alternating between Citrus Green and Coastal Surf. I then lifted my stencil in the up direction to be careful not to disturb the stenciled mouse since it is still wet and can move. I then got out my Sending Smiles and Thanks sentiment dies from Simon Says Stamp and die cut the image in card stock and also fun foam. I then glued the card stock onto the fun foam using Bearly Art glue and then I applied Glossy Accents to give the sentiments some shine and dimension. After the mousse dried, I wanted to add some splatter so I added white splatter to the black card using Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White and added blue splatter to the white card using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress spray Mermaid Lagoon. After that dried, I added the sentiments to the middle of the card panel and added some bling that I had in my stash. I then popped the card panels onto a card base using foam tap. I love how easy it is to use stencils and the possibilities with the mediums to use! The mousse adds dimension which I love!
I hope you all have a great week and I will check in with you later this week!!
Happy Crafting Y'all!!
