Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone and Welcome to this weeks

Stamp Tv Kit Addicts Friday Funday Tutorial. :)

This week I had a request on stencils and so I am going to do a couple different things with stencils over the next few weeks. I’ll mix it in with other things. I may do a video on this. I know there is a big crazy with stencil brushes, and I wanted to try it, but didn’t want to take the leap. As I would want several and I believe they are more than I wanted to spend at this time. But I still wanted to try this technique, so I hunted for another alternative... And found one. They may not work as good, but I don’t know, because I haven’t tried the stencil brushes yet. I found at the big box store not even a craft store either... The Crayola Paint Brushes. 3 come in a pack. 3 sizes and they were less than 4 bucks. I figured if I don’t like them I haven’t lost much, and if I do then I can get more or try a real stencil brush one day. :) So lets get to it.
Here are the Items I used for this weeks project:
Gina K. Designs:
*Stamp Set - Made With Love By-Gina K.
*Pure Luxury Card Stock - White Heavy Base & Layering 
Weight,

 Jelly Bean Green & Innocent Pink

*Premium Dye Ink - Innocent Pink, Fresh Asparagus, 

Jelly Bean Green, & Dusty Rose

*Patterned Paper Pack - Delicate Essentials
*Pink Gingham Ribbon - Gina said she would have ribbon in the online store soon. Cheery Lynn Dies : Stackers, Layers, Inverted Scolloped
Bling, Tape Runner, Wink Of Stella, and the

Heart Stencil from Made With Love Kit.

You can use any stencil and try this technique. 3D Foam Squares,

washi tape to tape down the stencil and paper.
Ok here we go! :)
Card Base is 11” x 4 1/4” scored at 5 1/2”
Innocent Pink layer is 3 7/8” x 5 1/4”

the White Layering weight layer will be cut down

after brushing on the color,  

to 1/8” smaller on both ways.

I started out with the layering weight larger incase I needed to cut off some.

And I did. When I pulled off the washi tape I wasn’t very careful

and it tore the paper. So I just cut off that part! :)

In this top photo - You can see I taped down the paper and stencil.

And you can see the brush I used.
When You wipe the brush over the ink pad,

just brush back and forth and pick up the color.

Wipe off some of the excess on scratch paper.

Then hold the brush up near the end like I am in the second photo,

and lightly swirl the brush around.

I go in a circular motion. 

On the last picture up above, On the right side you can see

in that heart how there is a little excess ink in the center area,
it was because I didn’t brush off the excess and

I was holding the brush down by the barrel part also holding the brush tight.

This is a really pretty soft technique. Great alternative to sponging.

I held the brush further away from the bristles and didn’t grip it very tight.

 

Finished this card off by doing the Rock and Roll technique on the roses and leafs. The layer is 2” x 4”
A piece of patterned paper cut a little wider and longer to attach behind the layer. 

I cut the dies out using White Layering & Jelly Bean Green then

stamping the Happy Birthday Greeting in the Fresh Asparagus

and carefully traced over it in the Wink Of Stella. 

Here is the Final Card Project. :)  <3 

Hope you all get a chance to get a little inky this week!  :) 

Happy Stamping!  <3

Love the soft colors and I will have to try this too.

I am excited to try this.  I like the look of those brushes and like you, I am not sure I want to spend the money on the brushes I keep seeing people use.  Many of those look like brushes that men use for shaving, though.  Maybe there are some in the cosmetic section of the store that would work.  Here is a video with the rock and roll technique:  http://stamptv.ning.com/video/rock-and-roll-with-the-days-of-summer...

Thank You ladies!  I will add this link to my post!  :)  Also, I get the makeup bag monthly, and sometimes it has makeup brushes in it. I am going to use some those as well and see how they do. When I saw the brushes that crafters were using, that was my question. If the brush soft or stiff...?  it turns out they are soft. That is what lead me to the crayola brushes.  Hope you all have a great day!  Thanks for the links!  <3

Thank You for the request of stencils. I am going to do another technique with then soon. You may already know it if Susie was in the class.  We shall see!  :)  <3  Thanks again!

Holly cow this is impressive. Love pink and green. Now one  more new thing to try. Thanks so much Miss Karen!

Love your card. Never tried the brush, have always sponged, so will give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

Also, love your card with Theresa's new set from the release party last night. Great party!

Thank you Bonnie and I hope you will try it. It is really easy, just have to build color slowly. :)  

You to Diana, I think you might like the brush as well. If you remember to take off the excess and build slowly. Thank You I love the new sets and had fun playing with them. Now waiting for The Next New Kit to come out !!!  :) I'm already excited...  LOL  

I've been wanting to try this too...but yes as you said, I can't see me getting those expensive stencil brushes anytime soon.  Thanks for finding a cheaper alternative, I'll have to see if I can find them too!  Did the ink wash out of them easy...I've heard it does on those others.

Beautiful card!  Love how you did the rock and roll on the flowers.  :-))

Such a beautiful card!  Love this technique!  I used to a lot of stenciling on the walls in my home.  I'm really dating myself...what a lovely idea!  I need to try this...thanks for the tips!

LOL...I had to go wash the brush to answer your question!  LOL... First let me say, I don't wash any sponges anymore. I have collected enough that each color has there own sponge. On the brushes, I figured one set of 3 per color family.... since the price is so low... LOL  But guess what?   I just went and washed the brush with a little dish soap and it is sparkly white again. Gina's Innocent pink didn't stain. But I'm sure if the ink stains, it would be like a sponge that is stained. and still be usable for other colors. Hang on.......  Ok, I have one that has had some blue ink in it for a couple of months...  and I just washed it, it came clean, I haven't tried the brush with the oh so staining reds. That will be another day!  LOL  Thank You for asking and I'm so glad you liked the flowers with the R&R technique!  :)  <3

Jean, are stencil brushes stiff? It's been a while...  LOL  I have brushes that I used on ceramics for dry brushing and they are stiff. Haven't tried them for this technique.  When I saw this technique done,  That was my question, is the brush soft or stiff. I was thinking I have several stiff ones LOL, but of course they are soft. That is when I searched for a soft brush that was cheep enough to play with. LOL  So for now Crayola brushes it is!   :)  I can see the advantage of the one they are using for this technique. They have more bristles so they cover a larger area, but hey, I'll just take a little longer... :)  Happy Stamping.
