Hits & Highlights – Extraordinaire Stencils


We've long been big proponents of the versatility of stencils. They are uniquely suited to a wide variety of techniques and mediums, feature exceptional durability, and are incredibly affordable — you simply can't beat their value in your crafting toolbox! With the introduction of our line of Extraordinaire stencils, stencil potential has been doubled! With both the negative and positive included, you have even more options for achieving your crafting dreams. This month, our team is showcasing some of that versatility by spotlighting techniques you can achieve with Extraordinaire stencils.

I love the Extraordinaire Stencils--they are so versatile! For my card today i show you how to use both parts--the positive and the negative to create a unique background. To begin, I used the negative to stencil a frame around my background panel using Kraft dye ink.

I let that dry and placed the positive element on top and sponged the center of the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

Once that was dry I sponged the edges with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and spattered with black acrylic ink.

Next i stamped Christmas Cardinals Stamp Set on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored with Copic markers. 

Before adhering the stenciled panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock base, the sentiment from the set was stamped with Extreme Black hybrid ink. Next the colored images were popped up on foam and it was done!
