Jenny is our host for CAS Mix Up August 2021, and I'm so pleased to be invited to be her guest! Thank you, Jenny! Here is the fun technique Jenny has chosen for us:
After looking through my stencils, I found a few open enough to make this technique work well. Jenny has shared a few videos to watch over at the CAS Mix Up blog post. But here is how I found stamping through a stencil worked best for me:
Step one: cut an A2 panel of card stock, apply a bit of repositionable tape to the
back, and adhere to a sheet of MISTI grid paper, centering as best you can.
Step two: Add your choice of stencil [an open design is recommended] and use washi tape to keep in place. This is also a good time to position your chosen stamp, too - today I'm using MFT's Roses all Over cling stamp today.
Step three: I then picked up the grid paper, with stencil attached, and fit it into a clipboard for blending.
Step four: After blending, place the grid paper back into your MISTI, and stamp repeatedly, right through the stencil, until you are happy with the coverage. It is imperative that your blended ink is completely dry before stamping!!!
My panel was trimmed down using a Pinkfresh Studio Stitched Rectangle die. I found a fun die for my sentiment, and here are the results!
Here's a look at my inks, and the embossed panel I use for a little lift,
without adding foam squares. This Altenew Happy Birthday die has such a fun font - I did a mop up of water-spritzed Scattered Straw ink to add the color. Leave it to Waffle Flower Crafts to have enamel dots to match!
Okay, I'm so excited to see what Jenny and the CAS Mix Up team has created, aren't you? See you there!? Thanks again, Jenny!
