Tutorial: New Sheena Douglass Stencils & Embossing Paste!

Welcome back to the blog!  Today we have a treat for you ~ a tutorial from Chrissie using a new Sheena Douglass Stencil using some very cool Dreamweaver Embossing Paste! AND... it's a shaker card.  The new stencils are coming soon and this one is called Graphic Equalizer.

It's actually pretty easy to create shaker cards.  The main thing you need is foam!  The color doesn't really matter, since it's mostly hidden behind the front panel of your card.

Step 1: Place the stencil over cardstock and hold it in place with tape.

Step 2: Using the application tool, spread Embossing Paste over the area ~ Chrissie used the
Dreamweaver's Pearlescent embossing paste.

Step 3:Smear the paste onto the stencil and then pull the stencil off and place in water immediately so the paste will come off the stencil.  Set the piece aside ~ it takes about an hour to completely dry.

Step 4: Die cut a heart in the center of the card using the Die'Sire Essentials Hearts die. Then, trace the heart onto the foam and cut it out, making it just a little bit bigger.  

Step 5: Glue a piece of acetate onto the back of the heart

Step 6: Adhere the foam to the back of the panel, using 
Collall Tacky glue.  Make sure you're using a glue like this one; it needs to be really strong.

Step 7: Add sequins, glitter, small beads, whatever you want to the shaker.

Step 8: Once the shaker is filled, add more Collall Tacky Glue to the foam and then place the card base.  Let it dry a few minutes.

Step 9: Stamp a sentiment from Sentimentals: Love Is All You Need in Memento Tuxedo Black and trim it with a die cut Die'Sire Essentials: Rectangles.

Step 10: Using a blending tool, add some color with an ink pad/sponge applicator (Chrissie used Distressed Ink pad Spun Sugar) to the die cut before removing it from the die.  This will soften the sentiment and to make is stand out.

Step 11: To finish it up, adhered the sentiment with foam dots.  In this picture, you can really see how amazing the pearl embossing paste looks with the stencil!
