Birch Press Design – Stenciling Quick and Easy Cards

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a great week so far. Today I’m over on the Birch Press Design blog featuring this set of 4 stenciled cards. They are quick and easy to pull together if you need something in a jif or if you’d like to mass produce cards to have in your stash. They would make a great gift to give as well.

I used the same mandala stencil on each of these cards. I just changed up the ink colors and where I placed the stencil on my panel. I used blending brushes and dye inks for all the stenciling. Let’s take a closer look at each card.

For this first card, I used some blue and purple inks and started my inking from the center of the mandala out. I finished it off with some gem stones accenting the different points of the mandala to make it a focal point and added a die cut sentiment to the bottom.

For this next one, I wanted to use bright, fun colors for my inking and then made the sentiment flashy with a rose gold mirror cardstock for the shadow portion. I finished it off with some opal half-round embellishments scattered across the design this time.

For this design, I brought the stencil down much further and stuck with some natural green and muted yellow inks. I absolutely love how this turned out! I also brought a little shine to this sentiment with gold mirror cardstock and pearl confetti bits scattered all about. This one may be my favorite.

Something struck me when I moved on to this final card and I decided to try stenciling at an angle instead of centered. I think it turned out really cool and would definitely try this design again. I finished it off with a simple hello and some great clear blue and green bubbles from my stash.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards. If you’d like to see the step-by-step, head over to the Birch Press Design blog where I lay it all out with a photo tutorial.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
