I have just been dying to get one of the Stampin’ Up Stencils out and use it. Today is the day. I feel stencils are a great way to embellish a card without adding weight or over powering your focal point (Deer) in your project. Join me today on this journey.
Before I get started on today’s tutorial I have a few announcements.
First, I have added a couple more great locations to my Brayer Workshop Calendar. I will be teaching in Monroe, Connecticut and Savannah, Georgia. Click Here to see my complete list of upcoming Brayer Workshop Locations.
Second, I have a new Blog Candy Winner. Drumroll please. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . and the winner of the beautiful Stampin’ Up set Day of Gratitude is

Started with a 4.5″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock. Masked the bottom of the card stock with a post it note that I ripped the top edge off of.
Brayered Baja Breeze ink at the top of the card stock. Baja Breeze is an excellent icy color for winter cards.
Stamped the trees from the Stampin’ Up Lovely as a Tree set using Baja Breeze ink.
Removed the mask.
Colored the deer stamp in, omitting the antlers using a Soft Suede Marker. Huffed on the stamp and then stamped it on my project.
Colored the image in darker using the same Soft Suede marker.
Stamped the Stampin’ Up Stamp Dasher on the slick side of my Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet using Basic Black ink. Quickly turned it over onto my project and rubbed the back of the plastic to transfer the image from the plastic to the card stock.
Note the image does not come out crystal clear. It gives you enough detail to color it in.
Colored the Deer in using a Basic Black marker.
Added White Gel Pen highlights to the antlers, ears, tail and top of heads of the deer.
Put a post it note mask on the project and sponged Baja Breeze ink at the post it note edge to create a shadow under the deer.
Added a Whisper White and Baja Breeze card stock panels.
Using the Stampin’ Up Mostly Vintage Decor Stencil added the design by sponging in the open areas of the stencil Baja Breeze ink.
Moved the stencil down and repeated the process.
Added Whisper White Ribbon.
Added a couple of antique brads.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be with love and laughter.
Until my next post. .. . . . . . ..
