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!



I love this idea! Beautiful cards!

Love this negative masking technique!! Putting this on my to do list of techniques to try!

Great technique with this beautiful Textured Rhapsody stencil!

What a brilliant idea! Cant wait to go home and try a mask on a stencil. Im gonna pounce the night away!

How do you make a reverse mask with a stencil. I love the colors, and the butterfly really finishes off the card..

WOW, beautiful cards! I love that you masked it off and that stencil is really fun!

Gorgeous card! A technique I will attempt.

Love the effects on these cards! This is one of my favourite stencils so far... more detail, pattern/design the better for me. TFS :)

I love that you used a mask with this stencil also, it really opens up your options of uses.

Not sure what it is that I find so fascinating about this grid stencil. But it will have to join my arsenal of goodies!

I love that stencil...looked at it, but not purchased yet..... yet.....


Wow, so cool

I love both cards, thanks for the inspiration and for reminding me that sometimes less is more, love that you don't cover your whole card with the stencil, it makes them more elegant(IMHO).

Love those beautifully colored stencils! The cards are lovely!

Sue, these cards are gorgeous - love that stencil!!
I'm curious whether it makes any difference whether you put the stencil on the card and the negative mask over top, or vice versa?

WOW what a fabulous way to use the beautiful beautiful stencil and Thank you so much for a chance to win it

Very cool technique! I gotta try this... amazing cards and endless possibilities! Thanks for sharing!

I really love this technique with both cards. Especially like the multiple colors of the first card.

I love the way you have used these stencils and want to give them a go, thanks.

OMG - this technique is so cool

What a cool and versatile stencil. Very beautiful!

This is a really cool technique, and one I´ve used several times too, and always gives a good result, which can also be seen on your gorgeous cards here too.

what pretty cards!
