Happy Birthday – Stencil of the Month

Happy Monday Crafty Friends! I am excited to be back sharing 2 of the monthly subscription products from Brutus Monroe. I am using the stencil of the month and the stamp of the month. I encourage you to check these 2 subscriptions out, as well as the other monthly subscriptions Brutus Monroe has.

I started by taping down the stencil of the month onto a piece of A2 sized water color card stock onto my glass mat. I sprayed the panel down with water and then sprinkled Tonic Shimmer Powder – Catherine Wheel on top of the water. You only need a little of the shimmer powder – the water does the magic for you! I sprayed a bit more water and it was fun to watch the powder move and the colors form! This monthly stencil was so fun for this technique. I was able to get 2 more panels created with the left over powder/water. I love when I can create multiple panels in one sitting!

I set aside my panel to dry. I then used the same stencil to create the envelope. I created a pattern along the bottom portion of the envelope and then stamped the cute mouse from the Stamp of the Month! Just a fun and easy way to coordinate the envelope! I used the Alabaster envelopes from Brutus Monroe and they were so easy to blend color on!

When my panel was dry, I die cut a heart out of the panel and the next size in vellum. I adhered the panel onto the card base, then the vellum heart, and last the hart using foam tape. I did add a bit of gold twine underneath for added interest and a few gold sequins.

I chose a sentiment from Super Sentimental – Happy Birthday! I stamped this using Brutus Monroe ink and Alabaster White embossing powder. I foam mounted my sentiment and my card was complete!

I had so much fun trying this technique! I learned this idea from my friend Ishani – you can see her Instagram here and on her page you will find a link to her you tube video using stencils! I encourage you to check it out!
