Hello everyone! Annalisa here showcasing the new large square masking stencil from Time For Tea Designs on not one, but two cards. In this release, there are 13 different stencil shapes to choose from! On each stencil, there are etched lines that indicate the Card Sizes A2 (US) & A6 (UK). You use these markings to line up your card blank to get the perfect placement for your mask which makes them easy to use. Also, they come with both the negative and the positive stencil which is so useful.
I used the outside of the square masking stencil and coloured the inside using the Distress Oxides Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire. I then covered the inside with the second mask and added the Magical Snowflake Stencil on top. After securing it down I added several drops of Distress Ink re-inker in the colour picked raspberry to some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and applied it to the stencil.
After everything had dried I stamped the words "Happy Birthday to an Awesome" (from Say Anything) using VersaMark ink to the blue backgrounds. I heat embossed it using some Icicle ultra fine embossing powder by Brutus Monroe. I die cut the Friend Sentiment Die Set and adhered it to the cards.
To finish up the cards, on one I added an elephant from You’re Elephantastic and the other two cute snowmen from hello Bluebird's Frosty Littles Stamp set.
