Craftangles new release..Dangling leaves stencil.

Today, card no1 is a simple card made using Craftangles newly released 'dangling leaves" stencil.

I started from the top of the white card stock panel and stencilled the leaves using 'Bamboo leaves' and 'Pear tart' inks from memento.
At the base, I used Tim Holtz 'Woodgrain' stencil to simulate water in a pond.
I then added the die cut butterfly (from spellbinders) and a sentiment from 
The sentiment is heat embossed using Craftangles silver embossing powder.

A sweet and simple card..just the way I like it!
The stencilling in this card is inspired by this card by Rahmat Ghouse.

For card no 2, I've used the same colours as above with the Dangling leaves stencil.
Here I added a fussy cut motorbike and sentiment from Craftangles "Roadtrip" stamp set.

For card no 3, 
I have used the newly released Craftangles 'Ripples' stencil, with stamps 
I have used 'Cantaloupe', 'Desert Sand' and 'Rich cocoa' inks
 to create sand ripples on textured cardstock.
I stamped and die cut the bike with 'Rich cocoa' and layered it over a piece of vellum. 
I then added the sentiment using my Misti tool and also added some brown sequins to finish the card.

For the last card, I used Craftangles 'Ripples' stencil with TimHoltz distress inks
(Broken china, Faded jeans and Chipped Sapphire)
to create ripples in the sea.
I then used the stencil to draw with a pencil on a piece of vellum which I then cut to create a mask.

Then, I stamped the boat (from Paper smooches 'Wicked Nautical' stamp set) over the mask to make it appear as if it is being tossed by the waves.

I then coloured the boat and paper pieced a little bird from the same stamp set to add some cheer.
The sentiment is from the Craftangles 'Road trip' stamp set..which I heat embossed on vellum using Craftangles gold embossing powder.
As an after thought, I added some stars using Winnie and Walter's star stencil.

Absolutely love the cards I made today...mojo has been away..hoping its back!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Craftangles May release stencils


I have a couple of cards for you today, made with the newly released stencils from Craftangles!!
They are so gorgeous..I cant get over them!! 
I have started with my favourite stencil..'mandala'.

To make this card, I used  Hero Arts Unicorn White ink to stencil over a deep green card stock. This ink takes a while to dry and I couldn't wait, so I dried it with my heat tool. This set the ink beautifully!
To finish the card, I stamped and diecut the sentiment using the Birthday stamp and die set, also from Craftangles.

For the second card, I used Tim Holtz 'Picked Raspberry', 'Worn Lipstick' and 'Victorian Velvet' distress inks to stencil the 'mandala' design onto smooth white card stock. I then cut this panel using Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die. I then layered this panel over some pink cardstock.
I used a second stencil on the card base as well as the stencilled panel to add some interest.
This stencil is the newly released 'Rays' stencil from Craftangles.
To finish the card, I used a die cut sentiment from the Craftangles birthday stamp and die set.

I hope you liked the cards and will be inspired to try out these stencils yourself!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
