Poppies! | Using Standard Size Stencils on Slimline Cards

Hi Everyone, it’s Priscilla here. Today I want to share two cards I made for the Kat Scrappiness Blog  featuring slimline cards made with a stencil meant for a standard A2-sized card. More and more companies are coming out with stencils sized for slimline cards, but you can also use those well loved stencils you already have in your stash.

To design this card, I did the following:

  1. Created a cardbase (8.5″ x 7″ scored at 3.5″) out of white card stock.
  2. Die cut a white layer to go on top of the base using the largest of the new “Wonky Stitched Slimline Dies”.
  3. Die cut a white frame from the largest of the new  “Tri-Frame Slimline Dies” and stained it brown with Distress Oxide inks.
  4. Took the inside piece from the “Tri-Frame Slimline Dies” and taped my 6″ x 6″ poppy stencil down over it, making sure to mask off the right edge of the stencil so as to not inadvertently get ink past the right edge of the stencil, creating a ink line.
  5. Softly blended brown, orange, and blue Distress Oxide inks over the poppy stencil from bottom to top.
  6. Cleaned off the stencil and placed it to the right, carefully trying to piece together the flower pattern in such a way that it looks like a continuation of the poppies.
  7. Blended the same three colors as before.
  8. Adhered all the layers together and added a “Happy Birthday Brush Script Word and Sentiment Die that I “glazed” with the new Ranger “Speckled Egg” Distress Embossing Glaze.
  9. Added five “Orange Jewels” for the finishing touch!

For my second card, I used the same stenciling method, but this time I used  Nuvo “Red Leather Expanding Mousse” to cover the stencil.

I used the two largest of the new  “Double Stitched Nesting Slimline Dies”  to frame the poppy image, inking it in “Speckled Egg” Distress Ink. Again I used the Ranger  “Speckled Egg” Distress Embossing Glaze” over the Kat Scrappiness “Hello Brush Script Word and Sentiment Die.”  For the finishing touch, I added three of Kat’s “Red Flower Sprinkles” around the “Hello” sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to check out what’s NEW in Kat’s Shop, and follow my blog and Instagram for more “Kat Scrappiness Amazingness”!
