Hello Spring Cards
Beach Chair Chipboard "Relax" Card

Simple Blending Technique With Stencil

Alleluia! Rejoice... He has risen from the death! We wish you all a blessed Easter. He has has overcome the death and this give us hope. We have a reason to rejoice in this season even though we are living in the hard situation these days.


Today, I would like to share with you all these quick and easy Easter cards that I created using the 4x6 Sunrise Stencil, stamp and die set.


To create the ombre sunrise background, I use a simple blending technique with stencil.


I used premium dye inks on my cards but you can use Distress inks or any kind of ink pads that you have for blending colors.

To bled the colors, I used my oval blending brush. All blending tool works best for this technique, too.

I taped the stencil on a white cardstock and started adding the color starting from the darkest color, medium color and then lightest color.


After blending the colors on the paper, I removed the stencil and then I trimmed it into 4" x 5 1/4" inches, slightly smaller than the A2 card base. I used my distresser tool to distress the edges of the cardstock. If you don't have distresser tool, you can simply use scissors for this step.


I added a piece of black panel (4 1/4" x 5 1/2" inches) directly on top of the white card with adhesive runner. And then, I added the sunrise stenciled background on top of it with the same adhesive runner.


I die cut the word pieces and the crosses (3 times) out of black cardstock with my die cutting machine. I stacked the crosses pieces together with permanent adhesive glue to create a crosses chipboard. 


I added all the die cut pieces on the card with the permanent adhesive glue.


I made a second card with the same blending technique. On this card, I sprayed some water and dabbed it off with paper towel. I dried the stenciled background panel with craft heater. This step gives some distressed look on the stenciled sunrise.


I stamped the sentiment directly on the stenciled background with stamping tool and black archival ink pad. After that, I trimmed it into 3 3/4" x 5" with paper trimmer. I tied up some twine ribbon around it and added the panel on another A2 card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

You can create any kind of background with this simple blending colors with stencil technique and Clear Scraps stencils. I hope you will give it a try.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!
