{Stencil Sunday} One Stencil Three Ways for Masculine Cards

Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! We hope you're all in good health. If you're looking for some stencil inspiration, today's post guarantees that! 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 her last 3 projects and she shows how you can create masculine cards using just one stencil!


Here's Deepti with her cards:

Happy Sunday Everyone!! Deepti here and I am back with my final post showcasing ARTplorations stencils for Stencil Sunday. For today's post, I have created three masculine cards with plaid background using one stencil. And the fun part is that all the three plaid backgrounds are inspired by my hubby's wardrobe :). Over to my masculine cards using Plaid Maker stencil.

Card 1

For this card, I did simple ink blending on white card stock, first by keeping the stencil vertical and then horizontal using distress oxides.

Once satisfied, I added the die cut sentiment using You Are My Sunshine Phrase Die and layered it with another die cut out. Added some matching sequins to complete it.


Card 2

For this card, I did partial ink blending using the same Plaid Maker stencil with different distress oxide colors but this time I rotated the stencil 360 degree.

Once done, I added die cut out sentiment using Thankful Word Die and stamped rest of the sentiment from Be Thankful stamp set.


Card 3

For this card, first I masked the white card stock with heart and then ink blended the background using distress oxides. After that, I stenciled it using the Plaid Maker stencil and peeled out the masked heart.

Once dried, I adhered it on the matching note card along with striped washi tape. Added the die cut out sentiment using Birthday Wishes Phrase Die which I first adhered on the vellum and fussy cut it. Jazz it up with some matching sequins to complete it.

I really enjoyed making these. I hope you get inspired and create some beautiful plaid background by getting inspiration from your hubby's wardrobe..;) 

My favorite is the first one with Yellow and Blue. 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!!
