Butterfly Vine Stencil...

Pam here to share with you a card I just made using the NEW Butterfly Vine stencil.

I debossed the stencil into Strathmore Bristol card-stock… It really worked great… the other side was nicely embossed, so you could use either side.

It was great to use the debossed side because the stencil stayed in the grooves while I misted it with three colors of Glimmer Mist. Patina, Frosty Nights and Mistletoe.

Let that dry…

Then I replaced the stencil in the grooves again and stamped with a variety of Memory Box stamps inked with Distress Ink pads. One of the stamps, Vintage Scroll has been discontinued.  Sorry about that… some shops still have it in stock.

I really like the definition the debossing/embossing gives… like letterpress without the ink.

I layered it up like this in my Big Shot…

* Multi purpose Platform set on Tab 1

* Clear Cutting Mat

* Spellbinder Tan Embossing mat

* Bristol card-stock (I very lightly spritzed it with water on both sides – spritzing on the back side helps keep it from curling)

* Butterfly Vine Stencil

* Clear Cutting Mat

* 5 pieces of 5 ½ x 8 ½ in. 65# cover card-stock, stacked together and placed on top (shims)

Then run it through!

Thanks for visiting the blog today!  Happy inking!
