Hello Friends and Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Emily @popofpaper here today with three projects using one stencil. Today, I’m using the Layered Park Tree 6×6 Stencil with the Trinity Blending Buddies, Distress Oxide Inks and Grass Green Glitter Gel.
The Layered Park Tree Stencil comes with two stencils that you layer together for depth and dimension with shaded leaves and textured bark. The great thing about Trinity Stamps Layered stencils is that they are also etched so you can line-up the designs for the perfect fit.
For all of my trees, I layered the following green distress oxide inks for my leaves (Shabby Shutters, Pine Needles, Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn) and Ground Expresso for the tree trunks.
My first card reminds me of a warm day at the park full of picnics, book reading and frisbee throwing. After stenciling the three trees, I added the grass and sky with a few Copic Markers. The Thank You sentiment was die cut from brown and copper cardstock and for a little extra pop I added three white clay hearts.
For my second card, I created a clean and simple Father’s Day Card. For a little extra pop I added Grass Green Glitz for the leaves. The Sentiments is from the A Sentiment For (almost) Everything stamp set and was heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. To bring more focal weight, I layered three gold and copper washi tapes to the bottom of the card panel. Then I adhered the sentiment strip and added a brown clay heart for that little extra pop.
For my last project, I created an Apple Tree bookmark for those afternoons reading under the shade of your favorite park tree (it would also make for a nice teacher thank you gift). I used the Narrow Card and Bookmark Die to create the bookmark and hole reinforcer. After stenciling the leaves and tree trunk, I used an embossing pen and the stencil to heat emboss the copper texture on the tree trunk. The book and apple are from the adorable Sleepy Hollow stamp set. I used Red Vintage Nuvo Drops to add the apples to the tree.
So there we are friends, three projects using the Layered Park Stencil. I hope my projects inspire you to mix and match your stencils for brand new looks with your existing stamps and dies.
Big Paper Hugs!
