Tips & Techniques Tuesday: Stickles & Stencils


Happy Tuesday!

Tonya here to share with you our first tutorial at All that Stickles. Please be patient with me, as this is my first tutorial ever.  :-)

One of the first techniques I thought of when we started bringing All that Stickles to life was stencils.  I love to stencil our walls at home.  So, I thought I'd try Stickles and stencils to create a card and see how it worked.  Love it! 


I have a Silhouette Cameo so I took some basic stencil font in the program. 
  And I cut the font out on white cardstock. 
*Note - You could use stencils out of the school supply section or cut from a Cricut as well.


 Here is the cardstock template all cut out and out of the machine.


 To make sure the stencil did not move while I worked with the Stickles, I took some scotch tape and adhered the cardbase and the stencils in a few places.


 I Stickled right in the open places on my template, and let it dry. 


The card after the Stickles dried and template removed.  


To finish the card off, I inked around the edges with Festive Berries Distress Ink and added some white pearls too for some interest. 
  
 I love this card.  I think I just might give it to hubby.  ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to check out
this week's anything goes linky party. :-)
