Hello and Welcome! This is Shanna today with another 3 Products 3 Ways on the third!
This month is all about:
I had a lot of fun (as usual!) creating this trio of projects--so let's get started!
For my first card I created a mini slimline that used the Celebrate Sweetly Stencil across the bottom 2/3 of the card panel. I masked at an angle the top of the panel while I stenciled in blue, purple, and pink inks---then after I lifted the stencil I went back over the panel with the same inks to create a tone-on-tone effect. I added a scrap of dark gray cardstock to add a visual border/frame to the top of the stenciled section and then used the Celebrate sentiment from the Celebrate Sentiment Stamps and black ink to stamp in one with the same angle. I then die cut a few candles using the candle die found in the Celebrate Frame dies and added them adjacent to my sentiment. This stencil technique is one of my most used--I love the finished look!
For my second project I created a layered shaker tag! I used a piece of dark gray cardstock and the edge of th largest frame die in the Celebrate Frame Dies set to die cut the bottom of the rectangle. I then used the Celebrate Sweetly stencil and some stencil butter in turquoise to stencil on the pattern onto the dark gray cardstock. I love how shiny it turned out! Next I die cut 2 white panels using the stitched rectangle in the Celebrate Frame dies. For one of them I stamped my sentiment on it and glued a die cut cake before adding it to the backside of the gray tag. This allows for space to write a sweet message to the recipient!
For the second white rectangle I lightly stenciled in greens and blues using the Celebrate Sweetly stencil and then set it aside. I created a shaker using the celebrate oval frame and smaller inner oval dies and a piece of acetate. I glued the acetate under the window and then added clear double thick tape all the way around the edges. I added a mix of sprinkles and sequins from my stash and then adhered the shaker frame over the white stenciled rectangle. I lined up the two tags and hole punched through both so I could add my lime green ribbon to the top! So pretty!
My last card is a standard A2 card that I layered a partially die cut black panel using the largest frame die in Celebrate Frame set and then I die cut a white stitched rectangle and stenciled the edge design from the Celebrate Sweetly stencil! All of the stencils from TLC Designs are amazing in the use of space--the edges provide another pattern to stencil as well--in this case hearts!! I used a rainbow of inks and shifted the stencil slightly between rows to achieve the interlocking pattern. I used the Hello sentiment on another die cut stitched rectangle (partial die cutting to get a smaller rectangle) and some black ink. The cupcake stamp from the Celebrate Sentiment stamp set was stamped in pink for a pop of color! All the panels were layered and added to a white card base to finish off the card!
That wraps up this month's trio of projects! If you enjoyed then, I would love to hear from you below! You might also want to mark your calendar for the 15th of this month too as the team might have some new projects to *CELEBRATE* with for our September release!!
Until next time, Stay Crafty!!
