Card Cafe Thursday with Kimber McGray…and an announcement!

Hi Everyone!  Today I wanted to showcase one of the new products that were released at CHA Winter by Jillibean Soup & Hampton Art – Stamps and Stencils!  These sets come with a large, 4"x6" stamp and a coordinating or complimentary 4"x6" in stencil. The stencils are flexible and have a sticky back to them. These are great to use on many different materials because they will bend and adhere to stay in place. The sticky back also keeps inks and other mediums from seeping under the stencil and ruining your design. 

I created this JOY card using the new butterflies stencil and Goosebumps texture spray to create a resist technique!

 Start by placing the butterflies stencil on your paper. 


Mist the Goosebumps on the stencil/paper. Spray so it puddles and fills in the stencil a bit.


Peel off the stencil and place it on the clear backing that came in the packaging. Wipe clean with a baby wipe. 



Grab one of your favorite inks and a basic make-up sponge. 



Sponge the ink on the stenciled butterflies. The texture spray acts like as a resist to the ink!


Finish the card with a sentiment sticker (Jillibean Soup, of course), a bit of bling and you have a quick and easy card!

Thanks for joining me on Card Cafe Thursday!  Have a great one!

    I love using goosebumps spray, so much fun! The only thing I would say is before cleaning off the stencil, I would lay a piece of cardstock over it and gently rub with your hand – the goosebumps will transfer to your cardstock and give you a very different look when finished! 2 for the price of one spray! I like to use the “positive” and “negative” pieces side by side on a card.
