Xyron and Stencil Girl Week

  
Being on the design team for Xyron is not only great because I get to use such awesome adhesives, but also because we partner up with  fantastic companies, and I get the chance to get introduced to products I might not have tried.  This week we are playing with Stencil Girl products - and I've got to tell you, I love them!  The designs are not only fabulous, but the quality of the stencils is great too!

I made this very sparkly card - and I will share with you how I did it.

I started out with just white cardstock and spread a mix of Art Anthology Velvet Dimensional Paint in Aloha, Fiji and Tuxedo - using and old credit card to spread it out on the Fibonnaci 6" stencil.

While the paint was wet, I sprinkled some Wow Ultra High Embossing Powder in Metallic Silver over the design and heat set it .  Then I misted the white areas with Art Anthology's Studio Blue Colorations over the top.


I find that sometimes when I make a heavily embossed piece of paper, that it really tends to want to curl up - so I ran it through my 5" Creative Station - and of course, that held it perfectly in place on my card base.

I painted a Pink Paislee Artisan Element dimensional sticker with more of the Velvet paints, and ran it through my new Xyron 3" Sticker Maker (because the sticker had lost some of it's original stick).

I love all of the texture that  I got with this project - and hope that you might give it a try!

 

Be sure to stop by the Xyron Blog and the Stencil Girl blog.  There are some great giveaways and beautiful inspiration!

Scrumptious texture you've got going on! And putting the embellishment right in the center of the stencil just draws the eye in so many ways!
