Giveaway Winner and Memory Box Butterfly Vine…

PamSparksButterflyStencilCollage

Such a habit… I always seem to put a photo at the top of the post!  hehe  Oh well… go ahead…scroll down and see who the winner is!

Here’s the Butterfly Vine stencil debossed into Strathmore Bristol card-stock… It really worked great… the other side was nicely embossed, so you could use either side.

It was great to use the debossed side because the stencil stayed in the grooves while I misted it with three colors of Glimmer Mist. Patina, Frosty Nights and Mistletoe.

Let that dry…

Then I replaced the stencil in the grooves again and stamped with a variety of Memory Box stamps inked with Distress Ink pads. One of the stamps, Vintage Scroll has been discontinued.  Sorry about that… some shops still have it in stock.

I used the Perfect Layers ⅛ inch ruler to mat the stenciled and inked piece on black card-stock.

Here’s a close up…

I really like the definition the debossing/embossing gives… like letterpress without the ink.

I layered it up like this in my Big Shot…

Multi purpose Platform set on Tab 1

Clear Cutting Mat

Spellbinder Tan Embossing mat

Bristol card-stock (I very lightly spritzed it with water on both sides – spritzing on the back side helps keep it from curling)

Butterfly Vine Stencil

Clear Cutting Mat

5 pieces of 5 ½ x 8 ½ in. 65# cover card-stock, stacked together and placed on top (shims)

Then run it through!

NOW FOR the WINNER of the MB Lunette and Oriel Butterfly dies from SLS!!!

  4. Pam, thanks so much for the sandwich instructions to use a stencil to deboss. I have this stencil (and some of the other MB ‘word’ stamps…not sure if I have the one you used. I just got the B’fly stencil and want to try this technique. Your card is lovely. I’m just beginning to a a little of this stuff, and it’s such fun. Your work is a big inspiration to a ‘newbie’. TFS & Hugs
