AAA Cards | Game #124

The closer is the Holiday Season, the more popular stencilled backgrounds are. Today I am sharing a valuable tip for stencilling with glitter pastes and using die cut images over.

Have you tried to foam tape a die cut image to a paste stencilled background? Usually foam tape does not hold well on the paste textured backgrounds.

Paste Stencilling for Cards with Die Cuts
I am share a valuable tip how to apply pastes if you are using foam mounted die cuts in your cards design.

My today's card is inspired by AAA Cards Challenge #124 and we challenge you to make a card using a prompt word.
I made my card with Bats stamps and coordinating steel dies set sent to me by Luba Shtrigel from Gerda Steiner Designs.

I started with masking off a rectangular in the center of the card note and blending several shades of Distress inks.

Then I removed the masking tape and stamped down the web image and the sentiment in black archival ink.

A cute bat is die cut, stamped in alcohol friendly ink and coloured with Copic Sketch markers.

Prior to assembling my card I stencilled tiny hearts with a glimmer paste across the lower part of the card note.

How To Use Texture Pastes for Cards with Die Cuts?

  • Arrange die cut images on your card note
  • Die cut masks from a low tack paper, Post It Notes will work for this well.
  • Replace the die cut images with tacky masks
  • Place your stencil over and apply the paste.
  • Remove the stencil and the masks
Using die cut masks under your stencil will keep the background clean from texture paste and let you foam mount the die cut images neatly.

I noticed one interesting quality of Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone. It adjusts its colour to any background. Previously I have been using it on light blue blended backgrounds, and the paste looked icy blue. Today on the fervent backgrounds it sparkles with golden shine.
