Cardmaking with stencils by Ishani

Hello again,

I am Ishani (Quillish) and I am back with some fun ways of using the amazing Craftangles stencils. I have been a great admirer of CrafTangles stencils and thought of focusing on them, for this post.  So, I have for you, three cards using four different CrafTangles stencils - Small Ganeshas, Mandala, Stripes and Fireworks and a couple of stamps for the sentiments.

Starting the blog with bowing to Lord Ganesh. For my first card I used two stencils.

1. I started with a masking paper from CrafTangles stamping masking sheets on which I drew the Ganesh from the stencil Small Ganeshas and fussy cut it a little outside my pencil markings.

2. Then on my 6 x 6 size of CrafTangles Iris 270 gsm paper, I stenciled my Ganesha, by blending in two colors of Distressed Oxides - Squeezed lemonade, Twisted citron and Cracked Pistachio and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing powder

3. Then I masked my Ganesha with the masking paper that was cut in the same shape and centered the Mandala stencil over it and sponged Distress oxides in Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry

4. I used the Shubh labh sentiment from the stamp set - Shubh Labh and adhered it on Craftangles 250 gsm card stock in Rose Pink .

Now after Ganesh Utsav, it's time for some Fireworks. My second card uses the CrafTangles stencil called Fireworks and sentiment from the stamp set Shubh Labh.

1. I cut a regualar sized front panel from the Craftangles Lilac cardstock of 250 gsm  and white heat embossed the sentiment Happy Diwali from the stamp set Shubh Labh with White embossing powder

2. Then I used various Distress oxides to give my paper a look of night sky during fireworks. For the glow I used Distress Oxide in Squeeze lemonade and for rest of the sky I used Wilted Violet and Salty ocean.

3. Then I used Glimmer pastes through the Fireworks stencil in Copper, Red Garnet and Sparkling silver and let it dry. Then I used CrafTangles dual textured white cardstock for my side folding card and adhered my fireworks panel on it.

Moving on to my last card, where I used CrafTangles Stripes stencil.

1. I chose an almost 6x6 piece of CrafTangles Iris 270 gsm paper because the sentiment I wanted to use had a large font. So I adhered my cardstock with washi tape from the other side of the stencil and blended various Distress oxides, namely Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed lemonade, Twisted Citron and peacock feathers.

2. On the acetate sheet of the stamp set I arranged my sentiment Happy Birthday from the stamp set Happy day to see the placement and stamped it with the help of Stamp platform with the Memento Tuxedo black ink and also embossed it with  Clear embossing powder
{Happy Day stamp set  is a must have for all of us. It is that one stamp set that I use the most (pssst.. it's also on a discounted rate right now). This was one of the first stamp sets I bought from CrafTangles.}

3. I used CrafTangles mid night black Cardstock in 250 gsm to make the top folding base for my stenciled panel and finished it off with few CrafTangles clear sequins.

I hope my cards will inspire you to ink up your stencils and give them some love. CrafTangles have a great array of stencils and you'll not know what - not - to- buy. Have a great week ahead and 
happy crafting :)
