Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Stenciling 5 Ways

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello crafters! I am super-excited to be bringing you a new Studio Monday tutorial featuring one of my favorite techniques; stenciling! In the video for today, I will share 5 different ways you can use stencils to make some fun effects on your cards. Let’s quickly highlight a of them  before watching the video!

First up, we have stenciling with embossing paste; and to step it up a notch, I’ll show you how you can COLOR that embossing paste to get this stunning rainbow! The rainbow is a stencil from Stencil Girl called Little Painted Rainbow. Don’t you just love it? After applying my embossing paste through the stencil, I was really inspired to enhance the brushstroke effect with a bit of watercoloring!

The sentiments I added are from My Favorite Things’ Hello and Thanks die set and Neat & Tangled’s So Many Sentiments stamp set. One of my favorite parts of this card are the tiny Iridescent Stars that “twinkle” on the rainbow!

Next in the video, I’ll show you how to create a ghosted sentiment with stenciling. Can you see the “hidden” greeting in the stenciled pattern??

The letters that create the ghosted effect are from Altenew’s Bold Alphabet die set; the stencil design was Neat and Tangled’s Geometric Circles.

In the video I also shared a look at doing some ink spray stenciling – 2 ways! A clean and simple style like the background behind my shaker…

Or you can go wild and create something with a lot of interest and texture like this one!

Both have an awesome look and use Ranger Dylusionals ink spray. I enhanced the second card with Translucent embossing paste for extra dimension and texture.

Have you ever tried coloring with a stencil? It is another fabulous way to create a unique, stenciled effect! I recommend either tracing your stencil and coloring inside the traced lines, or use a medium that is not super-saturating. The trick is to not let a wet medium seep underneath the stencil and make a mess of your crisp lines. I’ll touch on this more in the video. For my card I used Tonic Studios Aqua Flow pens and colored directly through the Altenew Layered Dahlia stencils (there are two layering stencils).

Finally, the last technique I will be sharing in the video is how to make a cute stenciled candle holder! With a bit of acetate and a translucent paste (I prefer glitter pastes for the translucency and shimmer!), you can make a stunning candle holder for a tea light very quickly. The hardest part is waiting for everything to dry!

Be sure to watch the video below to see all these techniques in action! :) I hope you enjoy and are inspired to do some stenciling on of your own! Thanks for stopping by, I’ll see you next week with a brand new Studio Monday!
