Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! How are you all doing -- health-wise and crafting-wise? If you're looking for a bit of inspiration, you won't be disappointed because today's edition of Stencil Sunday is sure to inspire! We have amazing guest designers this summer sharing their talents and projects that show off how to creatively use ARTplorations stencils. And each month, we'll pick one winner of a $15 gift code -- the winner will be drawn from all comments left on the Stencil Sunday posts for the month, as well as from the designers' blogs.

Today we have guest designer Deepti Aggarwal sharing 3 stunning stenciled rainbow cards -- guaranteed to make you smile and hopefully get you crafting as well!


Here's Deepti with her cards:

Happy Sunday, everyone!! Deepti here and I am excited to be back with another post showcasing ARTplorations stencils for Stencil Sunday. For today's post, I have created three rainbow cards and the twist is... using three different coloring mediums and three different techniques. Over to my cards..

To start with, I die cut out three panels of white card stock using Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

Card 1

For my first card, I've used Art Splatters stencil and did simple ink blending using rainbow colored distress inks.

Once satisfied, I added the die cut sentiment using Beautiful Word Die and You & Me Phrase Die to complete it.

Card 2

I've used heat emboss resist technique to make this card. I took Faces: Grace stencil and applied VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using black embossing powder.

Then, I colored it using rainbow colored gelatos and kept the background subtle to highlight the image. Adhered it to matching note card and stamped the sentiment from Fond Expressions 2 stamp set to complete it.

Card 3

For this card, I first water colored the background with rainbow colors and then applied black gesso on top of Shower of Flutters stencil.

Once dried, I added the stamped sentiment from Trendy Feathers 2 on white strips and adhered the same on card stock. I went bit overboard with this card ;) and jazz it up with silver sequins to complete it.

I hope you like these colorful rainbow cards. My favorite is the butterfly one...Please do let me know in comments which one you like the most :). Check my blog here for more details.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

  9. Gorgeous inspiration! I esp. love the butterfly stencilled card since I have that stencil. Love the pretty rainbow of color against the black.

  10. Three gorgeous and vibrant cards. I like them all but I agree with you my favourite is the butterfly one. I think it is the contrast with the black that makes it stand out xx
