Video: Layering Stencils Two Ways with the April My Monthly Hero Kit

by Channin Pelletier April 06, 2021 2 Comments

Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I’m sharing a pair of cards I created with the new April 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit. In today’s video I demonstrate two different stencil combos and styles of ink blending with the rotating stencils and ink pads included in the kit.

(If you are having trouble viewing this video, watch HERE on YouTube.)

I started with the cat thank you card by ink blending with the circle/triangle/square stencil and the quarter circle stencil. 

I first ink blended over the circle/triangle/square stencil in Tangerine onto a 4” x 5 1/2” panel of Dove White cardstock. Next, I ink blended over the quarter circle stencil in Raspberry Jam. When I finished I then cleaned the quarter circle stencil and rotated it 90 degrees and ink blended with Grape Juice

When I finished ink blending, I then adhered the panel onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I stamped the cat image from the stamp set in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto white cardstock and die cut it out with the matching die. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto Pitch Black cardstock. Next, I trimmed the sentiment down to a strip and added foam tape to the backside of it and my cat. I finished the card by adhering them to a small panel of vellum and then adhering the vellum to the card front. 

For my second card I started by ink blending over an A2 top-folding white card base with the circle/triangle/square stencil in all three ink colors (Tangerine, Raspberry Jam, & Grape Juice) but this time in a gradation. Once I finished ink blending, I cleaned the stencil, rotated it 90 degrees and then ink blended the gradation again in the same colors but this time a more heavy handedly to create depth and contrast. 

Next, I stamped the fox image in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto white cardstock and then die cut it out with the matching die. I then stamped and white heat embossed my second sentiment onto Pitch Black cardstock and also trimmed it down to create a strip. I added foam adhesive to the backside of both my sentiment and image and then adhered them to a small panel of vellum. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the vellum to my card front.

I hope you enjoyed my cards and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Pretty with the three inks provided in the kit. Interesting stencils and the black figures looked nice on the busy background. Thank you.
