CAS Stencil Reminder: Monoprint

Already time for our CAS Stencil Reminder: Monoprint Cards!
You still have until the 24th to play along.  Linda is our awesome host.  

Our Design Team and Guest Designer Lucie (LucieG'sCreativeSpace) have
fabulous cards to inspire you!

Here is my CAS Stencil Monoprint Card!

First I die cut an A2 card front using the new CUTplorations
"Basic A2 Panels Nesting Dies" and attached to card base.
The die gave a nice crisp beveled edge to the card front.

I used a scrap from my CAS Stenciled with ARTplorations "Leaf Prints Stencil
Monoprint launch card to die cut a
Memory Box Stitched Circle and inlaid into die cut circle of card front.

Here is the detailed description of my monoprint technique on my launch card.
There was a blob of Brushos ink in the middle of my image so I fussy cut 
one of leaves from the positive stenciled image and popped up with dimensionals.

Next I die cut the Happy shadow stamp from STAMPlorations "Skinny Sentiments" Dies.
Then die cut the skinny Happy out of the positive stenciled background scrap.
Attached with Connect Glue and added stamped birthday from STAMPlorations
"Birds of Paradise" stamp set and Done!

Hope you get to join the fun at CAS Stencil Card Challenge.  Hugs...

  1. I recently found the Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink, Nancy... your bright, and brilliant Brushos blows it out of the water!!! SO beautiful, and this stencil is, too! I never think I'd use a die for a card base, but you are so right about that finished edge!

  2. A lovely use of your leaf stencil monoprint, Nancy... this a really lovely fresh card... inlaying the printed circle cut and then cutting the sentiment from the same print is fabulous addition.. love your card, Hugs Robyn

  3. Oh, WOW!! This is a very creative use of the stencil, and I especially love the sentiment!! It looks like a reddish zebra stripe. Fabulous and cute!

  4. Your card makes me think of a candy cane Nancy! but you tricked me and it's a birthday card! What a wonderful vibrant red on your monoprint leaf stenciling! xx

  5. Nancy I'm loving your red theme so bold and inspiring. So clever using it in your sentiment :)

  6. What a cool and artsy card, Nancy! I love geometric designs and this one fits the bill. I love that you cut the leaf and inserted it into your background design. Very well done and again, love your happy colors.

  7. This is bright and stunning, Nancy! The design reminds me of the peace symbols of the sixties!! And I love the way you cut your card front with a die for a nice edge!! Hugs, Dolly

  8. Beautiful stencil monoprinting and fun color palette, Nancy! I love that you used it for your sentiment, clever!

  9. This is so bold and bright .... I love it!!! xx

  10. Your monoprint is extra fantastic with the cut out leaf front and center, Nancy! What a great idea to add depth and hide a smudge! Love the letters and how festive this birthday card is!

  11. Yummy colour Nancy and a great card - wonderful monoprinting and artsy yet remaining the CAS! Great job!

  12. You are so creative Nancy and what a Wow effect from the fun technique x.

  13. Great save for your blob of colour! I really like what you did with the positive leaf on top of the circle with the negative leaves!

  14. Beautiful stencil monoprint in red, Nancy! You could add this to the CAS Watercolour challenge this month too! :) Love the design with your inlaid circle monoprint with positive leaf fussy-cut and popped up. Creative use of the positive for the leave and also part of your sentiment. xx

    1. Thank you for the suggestion..I have added to the CWCC Monochromatic Challenge. Hugs...

  15. What a brilliant design Nancy and so cleverly done!

  16. i just love it how you used it in your sentiment as well!

  17. Gorgeous design Nancy, love the inlaid circle and bold red, the monoprint looks fantastic, Cathy x

  18. Such a bright and happy card, Nancy! I would have never thought the positive stenciled leaf was placed to hide a blob. I thought what a wonderful idea to combine a negative stenciled piece with a positive one. Wonderful job of the sentiment, happy, using the positive stenciled background, too.
