Pretty Pink Posh. Valentine's Day Cards with Layered StencilsIf you would like to see how I made all of my cards, be sure to check out my video below or on YouTube.

Card 1

For my first card, I used the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Chocolates stencil and made a card that resembles a candy box. I started by creating the stenciled background. For Layer A, I used Scrapbook.com Dark Chocolate ink for the shape of the chocolates. For Layer B, I added Scrapbook.com Pops of Color in the Raspberry Kiss color. The Pops of Color is a liquid embellishment that dries with 3D dimension and a glossy finish to your project.  I chose to use the Pops of Color because of its vibrant color and I knew it would show up well on top of the dark brown ink that I used for the shape of the chocolates. After applying the Raspberry Kiss Pops of Color to the squiggly lines for the topping on Stencil Layer B, I let the background dry completely before adding Stencil Layer C. For Stencil Layer C, I added the Scrapbook.com Pops of Color in Key Lime for the sprinkles. Again, I let the background dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Next, I used the largest and second largest Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies to die cut the pink frame. Using the largest Wonky Stitched Rectangle, I also die cut the stenciled background. I glued the frame to the stenciled background.

For the sentiment, I hot foiled the word Love using the Pretty Pink Posh Hot Foil Large Love and die cut it with the coordinating Large Love Shadow.

I tied a piece of twine around the Wonky Stitched Rectangle panel and then added that layer to a piece of pattern paper that I cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Next, I added it to an A2 size card base.

Card 2

For my next card, I used the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Valentine Hearts stencil to make a card that looks like the conversation hearts candy that is popular for Valentine’s Day.  The Layered Valentine Hearts stencil is a four layer stencil which includes the heart shapes (Layer A), the dots for the hearts (Layer B), the stripes for the hearts (Layer C), and the words (Layer D). This pack of stencils has so much versatility because you can pick and choose which stencils you want to use. For example, you can use just the Layer A stencil to get a background full of hearts. You can also use the Layer A stencil with the hearts and add a design to the hearts with the dots from Layer B and the stripes from Layer C. You can also use all four stencils together to get the conversation hearts background as shown in the picture below.

While inking stencil Layer A, I masked off each row with Scrapbook.com Mint Tape in order to get different colors of ink for each row of hearts. I used the Scrapbook.com Hybrid inks in the following colors: Pink Flamingo Ink, Pear, Parisian Purple, Sky Blue, Lantern Light, and Orange Cream.

I used the same color inks to add the dots (Layer B) and stripes (Layer C), just adding a little more ink to make it look darker on top of the solid heart shape. For Layer D, I used Scrapbook.com Cardinal Red ink to add a red ink color to the words.

For the sentiment, I hot foiled the word Hugs from rainbow hot foil using the Hot Foil Large Hugs and die cut it with the coordinating Large Hugs Shadow. I used the Scallop Border die to die cut a border from pattern paper and added it to the left side of the stenciled cardstock.

I added the Pretty Pink Posh Blue Sky Pearls and Lilac Pearls to the card front and added it to an A2 size card base.

Card 3

For my next card, I used the Pretty Pink Posh XOXO stencil. This is a three layer stencil that consists of the following layers — Layer A is the X’s, Layer B is the hearts, and Layer C is the O’s.  For my card, I used Layer A and Layer B to create a background full of X’s and hearts. For the X’s on Layer A, I used Distress Oxide Kitsch Flamingo Ink and for the hearts on Layer B, I used Distress Oxide Candied Apple Ink. I cut the panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″.

Next, I stamped the leopard from the Pretty Pink Posh Heart Critters stamp set onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I used the following pens:

Leopard – Brown, Orange, Bright Yellow, Blender
Nose – Cool Gray 6, Blender
Heart – Sugar Almond Pink, Blender
Bow – Red, Blender

I stamped the roses from the Pretty Pink Posh Potted Roses stamp set and colored them as follows:

Rose – Deep Red, Red, Blender
Leaves – Light Green, Blender
Flower Pot – Sugar Almond Pink, Blender

I added a White Gel Pen to add depth the images.

For the sentiment, I hot foiled the word Love using the Pretty Pink Posh Hot Foil Large Love and die cut it with the coordinating Large Love Shadow. I added it to the top of the heart die cut from the Pretty Pink Posh Love Shaker die. I added a piece of vellum underneath the heart to soften the stenciled background so the hot foil Love stands out.

  3. Hi Lisa. All your cards are so creative. Thank for showing me so many stencil tips and tricks. I did not know you could use Pops of Color through a stencil. I also appreciate you showing how to tape the layers of hearts off to ink blend the different colors. I am looking forward to your next projects.
