New Under The Set #2 Set and Stenciling | Rubbernecker Stamps

 Hello crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing two cards I made from one stencil panel I made with Rubbernecker Stamps' new release of the Wavy Stencil and the Under The Sea #2 stamp set and coordinating dies.

For my first card I used the adorable sea creatures from the new Under the Sea #2 set with the new    stencil.  I also challenged myself to get some no-line coloring practice in too!  Here are the steps for my card.

Create the background:

  • Prep the stencil by spraying the back of it with Pixie Spray.  This is a temporary adhesive that will hold the stencil in place and prevent any movement of the delicate lines.
  • Place the stencil onto a 6" x 6" piece of white card stock.  Blend all four ink colors from Color Fuse Set #9 in an ombré pattern using ink blending brushes.  Do not remove the stencil.
  • Use a pallet knife to spread Glitz Glitter Gel over the entire project.  Remove the stencil and wash it and your tools immediately.
  • Set the panel aside to dry.
  • When it is dry, use the largest Nested Rectangle Die to cut the panel.  (NOTE: place the die up to either the right or left edge of the stenciled panel to have a strip left over for another card.)
  • Adhere the die cut piece to a top-folding A2 card base.
  • These photos show my process:  1) my supplies; 2) after ink blending; 3) after adding glitter texture paste; and 4) so you can see the beautiful sparkle!

The card elements:

  • Stamp the images with Copic safe, no-line coloring ink.
  • Use Copic markers to color the fish.  Use a black Micron .005 pen to add in the details such as the eyes, mouths, and dots on the fish.
  • Next die cut with the coordinating dies.
  • Stamp one of the included sentiments from the Under The Sea #2 stamp set with black ink.  Then trim it into a rectangle.
  • Add foam tape to the fish, sentiment, and two pieces of the plants.  Add to the card front, using liquid glue to adhere the remaining plants.

I love the sparkle of the embossing paste and how it makes the ink colors even more beautiful!!  Now for my quick bonus card!

Card base:
  • Dry emboss a white A2 sized card panel with the Wavy Stencil by using the embossing sandwich recommended for your die cutting machine.  Adhere it to a top-folding card base.
  • The leftover strip from the previous card measured at about 1-3/8".  I trimmed the length to 5-¼".  Layer it onto a 1-5/8" x 5-½" piece of teal card stock and adhere it to the card front.

The card details:

  • Stamp the fish and worm in Copic safe black ink and color with a few Copic markers.  Die cut with the coordinating dies.
  • Stamp the sentiment in black ink, trim to a slim rectangle shape and layer it onto a teal card stock strip.  Add foam tape to the back.
  • Add foam tape to the back of the fish and add it to the card.
  • Plan where to place the sentiment and the worm, then use a ruler and black marker to draw a line, as shown.
  • Adhere the sentiment and add the worm with liquid glue.

I love the subtle dimension you get from dry embossing with the stencil!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week.
