Hello there, Michelle Short here with Terrific Tags with Michelle. I have a tag to share with you using no-line stenciling with embossing folders. Stenciling on its own looks lovely, but combining it with embossing folders is a great way to step it up.
Today, I am using the Mistletoe Wreath Complete Product Bundle. This includes a stamp set, die set, simple coloring stencils, and an embossing folder, which all coordinate together. So you can mix and match to your heart's content! These products are also available individually.
The stamp set features a charming hand-drawn wreath and banner accompanied by nine versatile sentiments. Create projects to honor Christmas, winter birthdays, the New Year, and more! While the 3D embossing folder features a charming wreath of leaves and berries, the simple coloring stencil set allows you to create a charming wreath, with or without the coordinating stamp set or 3D embossing folder.
Creating the Image with Embossing Folders
I started off by die cutting the wreath from the Mistletoe Wreath Die Set using Classic Crest 110lb Solar White Cardstock. I then lined it up inside the Mistletoe Wreath 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through my die-cutting machine. This gives the most beautiful embossed detail to the wreath!
To color in the image, I used the Mistletoe Wreath Simple Coloring Stencil Set. I placed the stencils over the image one by one (they popped into place like a puzzle piece – thanks to the embossing) and used Mini Ink Blending Brushes to blend on the inks.
I love the no-line stenciling look, but you could always stamp the image, then emboss it and add stenciling on top if you prefer to have an outline to the image.
TOP TIP: This is a mistletoe wreath, so the berries would be white in real life, but this is crafting, so you can use any colors that you want! Experiment and enjoy using different color combinations!
I layered up the wreath with two more die-cuts cut from white cardstock for some added dimension.
Creating the Tag
I die cut two Terrific Tags Dies from white cardstock and ran one through my die-cutting machine with the Deck Planks 3D Embossing Folder. This gives a lovely subtle texture to the tag. The tags were then adhered together back to back and the wreath adhered on top.
I stamped the sentiment from the Mistletoe Wreath Stamp Set onto black cardstock with Embossing Ink. I applied Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and added to the tag with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
I felt like it still needed a little bit of color, so I die cut another tag from Red Cosmos Gradient Cardstock (Frosty Pink) before trying them together with twine. To finish off, I added a few Cherry Blossom Enamel Dots.
I hope this has inspired you to get out your embossing folders and stencils and try no-line stenciling! You can watch the full process video below, or on YouTube.
