Hay There! Working with Stenciled Pattern Paper

Hay There Friends and Happy Midweek! I thought I would share a few more details about my weekly Miss Ink Stamps IG Posts here on my blog.

This week I created a bright and cheerful card celebrating the color yellow and the fun Ei-ei-o word dies. I also had a blast creating patterned paper using the Halftone Lines Bold Edges stencil. I love using stencils to create patterned paper because you can customize the colors, size and design to exactly what you need for your project.

Making the card

First I created my own patterned paper using Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink, blending brushes and the Halftone Bold Center Lines Stencil.

Then I die cut the letters H-A-Y from the stenciled pattern paper. I also die cut the letters twice from white card stock and adhered them together for a thick chipboard look.

I stamped the Rise and Shine image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the buildings with Copics (Y00, 04, 08 and YR35) and added a few dots of hay into the fields. I really like how the partial coloring turned out against the crisp black stamped images.

I adhered the H-A-Y letters with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. I die cut “there” from black card-stock (I also stacked several times for a chipboard look) and adhered it to the card slightly overlapping the Y.

From the stenciled patterned paper, I cut a large panel and adhered to the bottom of the black card base. Then I layered the “Hay There” card panel slightly above the yellow patterned paper. To finish the card with a little extra pop I added clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and and black jewels.

I hope you enjoyed this bright and cheerful card and it inspires you to use your stencils to created patterned paper for layering and die cuts.
