Masking & Stencil Blending – Make a Card Monday #280

Happy Monday, all! Today I decided to make some customized cards for friends who are celebrating birthdays soon. I created a card for each person with their initial using the Mega Alpha Dies from Altenew (which are on sale currently at their shop–If you’ve thought about picking any of these up, now is the time!). To add fun color, I blended inks around the letters.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

For the Letter C card, I used the Mega Alphabet C die and cut out some masking paper. After applying the letter mask to white cardstock, I blended four colors of Gina K Designs ink over the letter area using Picket Fence Blender Brushes. I used In the Navy, Turquoise Sea, Sea Glass, and Lemon Drop.

I then placed the Thick Brush stencil from Gina K over the entire area and blended the same colors over it again. This left behind an awesome pattern!

For the next card, I used the Mega Alphabet J die, Altenew’s Mega Rose stencil, and three colors of Gina K ink in Lemon Drop, Peach Bellini, and Passionate Pink.

The final card was created in the fashion way. I used the Mega Alphabet L die, Altenew’s Deco Wonder stencil, and Gina K inks in Passionate Pink, Wild Wisteria, and In the Navy.

I love how these turned out! I can’t wait to mail them off to the recipients!

Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll be back soon with another card video. :)
