Stepping Up Layering Stencils | Pretty Pink Posh Christmas/Winter Release & Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends.

I’m so excited to be joining Pretty Pink Posh to celebrate their holiday release. This release is all about Christmas and the winter season.  To celebrate their release, Pretty Pink Posh is having a blog hop where you have a chance to win one of three $30 gift certificates to the Pretty Pink Posh shop.

Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop - October 2022 - Christmas and Winter Release

Be sure to read all the way to the end of this post to find out more about the blog hop, see some of the cards I made with this release, and find links to all of the supplies I used to make my cards.

If you would like to see the entire release, you can watch my video below or on YouTube.

For the blog hop, I’m sharing four cards that I made with some of the new products from Pretty Pink Posh’s new release. For my cards, I use some stepped-up stenciling techniques to add glitter and shine to my stenciled cards.

Card 1

For my first card, I used the Layered Coffee Cups stencil. For Layer A, I used Scrapbook.com Pine ink. For Layer B, I added Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink to everything except for the coffee cup sleeve.  I added Versamark ink for the coffee cup sleeve and then I sprinkle red embossing powder over the sleeves of the coffee cups and heat set them.

For Layer C, I inked the coffee steam with Scrapbook.com Fog ink. Next, I added Versarmark ink to the hearts and bottom of the coffee mugs. I use red embossing powder to cover these areas and then heat set them. Next, I reapplied stencil Layer C, adding Versamark ink to the stars. I used Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder and heat set it. I just love the look of the embossing powder on the stenciled background. It adds such a pretty shine to the stenciled background.

I used a rectangle die to cut the coffee cup background and added it to a piece of white cardstock.

Using the snowflake die from the Mitten Shaker die set, I die cut 10 white snowflakes and glued them around the outside edge of a piece of red cardstock. I added the coffee cup layer to the top of the red snowflake paper.

I stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments stamp set and cut it out with a banner die from the Holiday Envelopes die set. I layered the white banner onto a red banner and offset it.

I added some Ruby Red Pearls to my card. My finished card is an A2 size card which measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

After I inked all layers of the stencil, I added each stencil layer back on top of my cardstock and added Brutus Monroe Alabaster Glitter Glaze to each stencil layer. After applying the glitter glaze to each layer, I set it aside to fully dry before reapplying the glitter glaze to the next stencil layer. The glitter glaze adds so much sparkle to the stenciled background. It even resembles snow sitting on top of the leaves and pinecones.

I used a rectangle die to cut the stenciled background and added it to a piece of red cardstock. I stamped the Pine Wreath Stamp in Scrapbook.com Pine ink onto green cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating dies. I brushed some Brutus Monroe Alabaster Glitter Glaze all over the wreath. I added the Pine Wreath Stamp Set to the top of the card along with some acorns and a bow. I added the word Joy to the wreath. I used the Scrapbook.com Pops of Color in Rudolph Red to add berries to the wreath.
