NEW stencils at STAMPlorations by Helen G.

Hello All!  
Today is an exciting day at Stamplorations, as we are sharing projects made using new MAKE MARKS STENCILS from Helen G. Designs! Yes, our very own Mixed Media design team Member,  Helen Gullett, has designed 6 new stencils for us to play with. Each stencil is cut from high quality transparent blue stencil material and features 2 separate patterns

Take a Look:

I enjoyed inking these stencils with oval brushes to create soft patterns and backgrounds for die cut sentiments.

Make Marks 2 - ARTplorations Stencil -  Helen G. Designs
Make Marks 4 -
ARTplorations Stencil -
Helen G. Designs

I created a stencil and mask swatches with a Bloom Happy Coordinating Dies - CUTplorations and then inked the all three stencils: Make Marks 2, 4, & 5. Then added a drop shadow to each Swatch for dimension. Popped the HUGS die cut on and called it done.
For the second card, I masked off the edges of the cardfront. Then used the stencils: Make Marks 2 & 5 to ink layers with complimentary colors. Added the Die cut Smile and a few sequins.

For the final card I placed die cut masks of Trendy Spring Blooms Dies - CUTplorations then inked  Make Marks 2 over the top creating ghost images along with the stencils. Simply Splendid Phrase Die - CUTplorations is cut three times and stacked with the top one inked in the same colors as the stencil.

*Inks used are from The Ton Stamps:
Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop, Beach Blonde, Peach Blossom, Rose Quartz, and Orchid Crush

*Just a kiss of Wink of Stella on the sentiment dies for sparkle:)
