Textured Rhapsody Bliss



Hi everyone!! I hope you are enjoying our stencil blog blitz! My fellow designers sure have shown all of us some great uses of Memory Box's stencils. 

Today, I am showing you a technique I really love with my stencils.  For my card I created a negative mask and sponged with neon bright inks through the textured rhapsody stencil # 88515. Memory Box's textured rhapsody stencil is my go to stencil. 

When the sponging is complete, I remove my mask and grab an extra fine sharpie and I outline the the sponged areas of the stencil. An alternate way is leaving the stencil inlace and tracing around the shapes. Either works well and it goes quickly. It gives the stencil a stamp like look and it emphasizes the shapes on the stencil.

Here is another version of the same technique for an anniversary card for the hubby.


Hope you like this technique and will give it a try yourself! Let me know what you think of this technique  by leaving me a comment and you will have until Sun, May 18 at 6pm EST for a chance to win this stencil.  Winners will be chosen at random and posted on the Outside the Box blog on Monday, May 19. 

Good luck!



Wow - this was really pretty!

WIN this stencil? I just put it on my wish-list! I won't mind to win this beauty! Gorgeous samples, they made me ... yes, want to buy them!

These cards are beautiful! There are so many techniques I don't know about or forget to try... I'll have to add this to my list!

I have a few stencils, but now it looks like my stencil collection will grow. :-) These are very pretty cards.

Must try this. Lovely CAS cards. Thanks for sharing

This is stunning Sue!

Love these cards! Thanks for sharing.

What great cards and great technique to try! Love your work!

Just beautiful, Sue! Great looking stencil.

These are lovely. Simple but elegant.

Sue, I love the technique and the cards! I knew as soon I saw them without scrolling down to your name that these were your cards! Love them!

These are gorgeous! The outlining really makes it special!

Gorgeous cards, this stencil is a must have!

This is gorgeous. Love the colors and the technique. Something else for my wish list!!! Thanks for sharing.

How beautiful. Great cards, great technique, love how you turned a simple card into something gorgeous. Great job.

Love the look of the technique (the pen work) but even with the stencil in place it's a recipe for disaster under my hands!

Stunning cards! I like the way you used the stencil with a common shape. This is definitely something I will try when I get some stencils.

Would love to add this stencil. I have several, but WANT MORE! Love trying the different techniques.

Love this stencil! Beautiful cards.

Nice! I like the masking and stencil combo. A must try! TY!!!

What a fantastic idea! Using this masking technique makes stencils even more versatile. Thanks for opening my eyes to even more uses for them! Your samples are wonderful--and thanks for the anniversary card idea (my own is coming up soon). :)

So, simple, so pretty and so effective. I love it

Oops, my post got lost. This is STUNNING! Absolutely beautiful!

What a way to make the stenciled areas "pop"! Love this idea! Thanks so much!

Stunning! Hope you'll make a video showing this technique!
