Stencil Sunday | Heat Embossing With Stencils

Hello hello hello… Happy Sunday, crafty friends. Today is my turn again to share my projects for the Stencil Sunday post.

I had so much fun creating these 4 cards using the ARTPlorations Square Stencils, Word Phrase CUTplorations Dies, and WOW! Glitter Embossing Powder. Visit STAMPlorations Blog for more inspirations and to enter the giveaway.

On all those four backgrounds, I use the heat-embossing technique. It is a super fun technique with stencil to try when you want to create bold background. I promise you that you will love the results!!!

First, I applied the anti-static powder on the black cardstock surface, next I taped the stencil on black cardstock. I dabbed the embossing ink all over the cardstock and then removed the stencil. And then I sprinkled the embossing powder on the cardstock, flicked off the extra in the coffee filter, and then heat set the embossing powder with craft heater.

On my first card, I used the All Bloom ARTplorations Stencil and the sentiment is Birthday Bash Phrase Die.

For the second card, I used the Bloom Succulently ARTplorations Stencil and Happy Everything Phrase Die for the sentiment.

For the sentiments on first and second cards, I cut out three layers of white cardstocks and then stacked them together with permanent adhesive to make phrase chipboard. I added the sentiment phrase on these first two cards with the permanent adhesive, too.

For my third card, I used the Petals 3 ARTplorations Stencil. This background is very interesting. I was so surprised with the result of the color. I used the Taffeta Pink embossing glitter but after I heat set the powder, it turned into teal-green color! I don’t know what cause the color changed, but it is pretty cool.

The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Thanks (it was a free 3×4 stamp set offered by Shery a while back). I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with Verdant VersaFine Clair pigment ink pad, then I trimmed it into sentiment label. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

For my fourth card, I used the Petals 3 ARTplorations Stencil and the sentiment is from one of the Inspirational #1 Clear Stickers.

I added the sticker on a white cardstock and cut it with scissors. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape, too.
