OCC: Stenciled - Okay, One More

I made one more card for my Stenciled Online Card Classes homework:

This time I sponged ink through a stencil, and I both offset it and flipped it over. The colors are Pale Tomato and Butter Bar. I was hoping to get Orange in the middle, and I did, partly because I didn't bother to clean the stencil between colors. I also on purpose made the colors lighter as I worked my way to the bottom of the card.

See how the orange triangles aren't perfectly aligned? I totally meant to do that! I kinda like the flecks of white showing.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink and clear embossed. I trimmed off the right edge of the top layer so I could add a strip of black washi tape to cut all the color and to coordinate with the black sentiment. I thought there were too many sharp corners, so I used my 1/8" Corner Chomper on the edges of the sentiment, top layer and card base.

I liked this class a lot. I think you'll see some of the techniques incorporated in future cards here. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: vat of clear embossing powder, Whisker Graphics Divine Twine, misc washi tape, and the following:


  1. Gorgeous colors!! I agree-lots of great ideas in this class for future cards!

  2. Keep 'em coming, I am enjoying it. I like what you did with the triangles here, and the washi tape is perfect on the edge, too.

  3. Beautiful card! The technique looks easy and fun:!

  4. This is really a cool design! Love the colors too!

  5. The bright colors made me pick this one out of the gazillion entries in the Stenciled to take a better look. Love the way you did this. Also delighted to see the OWH badge on your blog -- I love making cards for them too!

  6. Oh this is so yummy, I agree this was such a fun class lots of new things to try.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
