Peek-a-boo-designs - First DT post



I am so happy to share this with you, I am one of the new design team member at Peek-a-boo-designs. Its a new journey in my crafting life.

For my very first post I made two cards with their new stencils.

These stencils are of good quality. What i liked most is size of these stencils. I prefer making 5x7* cards where as the stencils available for cards are smaller. So I was not able to cover entire card front. But these are bigger which can fit a 5x7* card front vertically,horizontally and even diagonally.

Now coming to my cards. I made two cards with their 2 of their stencils.

Card 1

Its a simple 2 colour card. I kept it simple and less colour.

# I placed stencil over a white CS and used hickory smoke ink.
# Then placed stencil over black CS and applied texture paste.
# After texture paste dried, I trimmed the CS so that it matches the design on white CS.
# Stamped sentiment from Magical Fairies with black onyx ink.
# Mounted all panels on each other with foam sheet.

Card 2

As earlier card was monochromatic I thought of making something colourful.
# Placed stencil over a white CS , used distress inks (wild honey, picked rasberry, peacock feathers)
# Then used brand new rectangle stitched dies from PABD. I placed dies randomly on inked panel and die cut it.
# I placed the middle die cut piece upside down and stamped sentiment ( Positive Vibes).
# Mounted these pieces on black CS and then on white card base with foam sheet.
