{Throwback Thursday} Angie Does Partial Stenciling on CAS Cards



Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Throwback Thursday is back and for the next three months, we have the super creative Angie Cimbalo guest designing. She will share projects inspired by projects created by the STAMPgirls. Make sure you comment on this post for a chance at a $15 prize code. Every month, we draw 7 winners, with the winners randomly drawn from all posts published during the month. The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have.

Today, Angie shares cards inspired by a card by STAMPgirl Helen.


Have a look at Angie's cards:

Hello, it's Angie Cimbalo from Cimbacreativefun here and I'm very happy to be guest designing for today's Throwback Thursday! For my cards, I used for my inspiration, this gorgeous card by Helen Gullet.

The Throwback Card

I really love how she stenciled the background and used a floral cluster with a coordinating word die.

For my cards, I used the same concept, except since I'm a mostly clean and simple gal, I only did a partial stencil background. All three of my cards use the same technique, but vary in color and the floral cluster on each card is from a different stamp set. I like that with this technique, can use any size floral cluster, and stencil any one small section of the background and it still works beautifully!

Here's my first card, done in primarily pink:


  1. Distress Ink Tattered Rose inked direct to paper for the "Grateful" word die
  2. Same ink color blended over the Brick Stencil in the top left corner
  3. Floral cluster is "Floral Bliss Trio" stamp set colored with pastel alcohol markers
  4. "Grateful" die was cut 2 from black, one from white and one from pink and stacked
  5. Floral cluster was adhered right at the edge of the fading out stenciled ink

Here's my second card primarily in green:


  1. Distress Ink Bundled Sage inked direct to paper for the "Grateful" word die
  2. Same ink color blended over the Brick Stencil in the bottom left corner
  3. Floral cluster is from "Hello Coffee" stamp set colored with pastel alcohol markers
  4. "Grateful" die was cut 2 from black, one from white and one from green and stacked
  5. Floral cluster was adhered right at the edge of the fading out stenciled ink

And here is my 3rd and last card:


  1. Distress Ink Fossilized Amber inked direct to paper for the "Grateful" word die
  2. Same ink color blended over the Brick Stencil in the bottom right corner
  3. Floral cluster is from "Blossom Sprays #1" stamp set colored with pastel alcohol markers
  4. "Grateful" die was cut 2 from black, one from white and one from yellow and stacked
  5. Floral cluster was adhered right at the edge of the fading out stenciled ink

And there you have it, my first Throwback Thursday guest post!
I love Helen's style and had so much fun using her beautiful inspiration for my creations!
I'll be back for another hrowback Thursday in December, see you then!

  1. Beautiful cards! I have to do this more often with using just a section of the stencil. Makes a pretty background!
    Happy Thanksgiving!
