Quick Crafting Tip - How to Make Your Own Stencils and Masks

 There are new masks (aka "stencils") in the annual catalog. They can be found on page 201. The Pattern Party Decorative Masks can be used with a sponge or dauber or over the newest accessory - Embossing Paste!  

Embossing Paste is remarkably easy to use, fast drying (so fast be sure to wash off your mask/stencil right away!) and creates the most incredible texture! If you like mixed media, texture and accessories, this is a product you must have.  One jar will make about 50 cards making it very economical too.   The Embossing past is placed over the mask to create a textured background. You can view the quick video on how it works HERE.  

You may be wondering, what if I want other patterns?   

That's easily accomplished by making your own.  Today's quick tip video will teach you how to create your own masks/stencils using the Stampin' Up! Window Sheets and your favorite die.  

I've included a picture and cutting dimensions for my completed card below. 

Stenciling and pasting just got lots more fun!

Oh So Eclectic Watercolor Blooms Card

Simplistic and pretty is what I'm calling today's card.

These beautiful - and effortless - blooms are created using watercolor paper and watered down ink.  

This card is so simple, kids can create it.  No two will be alike and it's a card that can be used in array of colors.   

If you don't own an Aqua Painter, I'm hopeful that today's video will convince you. It's a beloved tool in my stamp room.

Although I don't use the coordinating thinlits on today's project, be sure to check out the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  These 13 dies coordinate with this stamp set.  The stamp set and the thinlits are available as a bundle, too.  Buy in a bundle and save 10%.  

I've included pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies below.

Quick Crafting Tip - Faux Chalkboard Technique

When I was a kid, the only place you'd find a chalkboard was in school, now they're everywhere! 

Local restaurants use them to display everything from daily specials to their entire menu.   

You can find them at weddings, announcing the arrival of the bride coming down the aisle, and, let's not forget, some folks are painting an entire wall in their homes for their kids to draw on.  

It's not the 1960's anymore! 

This popular surface flows into paper crafting as well.  Did you know that you can create a faux chalkboard look to your projects with Whisper White craft ink and a sponge?  

Today's quick tip video will show you two different ways to create this fun, and ever popular, look.
